10 Insanely Expensive Movies You Forgot Even Existed

Remember the gritty Jack and the Beanstalk reboot that cost nearly $200m? No? Anyone?

Is it worse to be a bad movie, or a forgettable one?

Obviously, nobody sets out to make cinematic garbage on purpose, but awful movies are a lot more likely to be remembered, discussed, dissected and maybe even reappraised once enough time has passed. Forgettable ones are just that, and we've all had the experience of shelling out our hard-earned cash to go and catch something on the big screen, only to find ourselves struggling to remember anything about it as soon as the credits start rolling.

There are so many big-budget blockbusters making their way to theaters each year, and many of them feel so increasingly similar that the summer months often tend to get mashed together inside your mind in a blend of pyrotechnics, pixels and promises of sequels.

Not every movie gets to be a success, but often they can end up fading from our collective memories and into obscurity so quickly that you can forget you've even seen it before until it randomly pops up at 2am as one of your late-night suggestions on Netflix, Amazon or Disney Plus. And that's the point you should just get up and go to bed.

I don't do social media, so like or follow me in person but please maintain a safe distance or the authorities will be notified. Don't snap me though, I'll probably break. I was once labelled a misogynist on this very site in a twenty paragraph-long rant for daring to speak ill of the Twilight franchise. I stand by what I said, it's crap.
