Hard to say, if only because it doesn't have (comparatively speaking) a lot of views yet. The gameplay trailer doesn't seem to be liked either, but still needs more views to be conclusive.

An entry for a movie called While She Was Out was added to Live Action Film. It has a 31% on RT and a 40 on Metacritic. I think that sounds like So Ok Its Average.

This political ad is causing a lot of controversy right now to the point that people are calling to boycott ABC for airing it. Thoughts? https://twitter.com/PollyTickal/status/1172448180077617154?s=20

Not sure what to make of that ad.

That ad is certainly worse than "Tuck Frump" IMO.

As PrincessPandaTrope discovered, a 2015 film adaptation of King of The Tibetan Antelope (listed under Asian Animation) is a lot better than the original, and has become a minor cult classic courtesy of a YouTube upload here. The original may still qualify and all (almost all info online is on the film) but I must ask: if the miniseries got a big-budget film adaptation in the first place, had to it had done SOMETHING right?

Final Fantasy: All the Bravest has an average score of 3.6 on Google Play, and more 5-star reviews than 1-star. Does that disqualify it?

It also has 4.2 on the App Store, so I removed it from Horrible.Smartphone Games. I saw reviews saying that many of the problems were fixed, though I definitely think it could be Snark Bait.

  • Square Enix had a freemium stinker note  in Final Fantasy: All the Bravest. The only thing the game has going for it is the accurate 16-bit-style recreations of familiar FF characters and monsters, including those from the post-SNES era (a style later replicated by the much more well-received Final Fantasy Record Keeper). Commanding a full squad of 40 FF characters at once sounds cool in practice, but since they all die in one hit and have none of their signature skills from their respective games, it's rendered completely pointless. Predictably, players and critics were outraged when the game came out, labeling it the absolute rock bottom of the entire money-grubbingly popular Final Fantasy series. IGN in particular decried ATB as both an insultingly obvious cash grab and a waste of a potentially cool idea), and Jim Sterling labeled it as his pick for the worst game of 2013 because of how nakedly greedy it was on the part of Square Enix to play off of the nostalgia of their fans.

Does 'Legend of The Condor Hero' count? The entry talks about its production history and pretty much nothing else (I think it does mention bad animation but that's about it). Could we either delete it or improve it a lot?

Rambo is rated a bit too highly on RT at 30% (bad, but not bad enough) and the complaints about it being a MAGA fever dream might not hold up under Rule of Cautious Editing Judgement. I'd say it doesn't qualify, and if it does, it barely does.

Edit: 7.2 on Imdb. Looks like we have a case of Critical Dissonance. Sorry to be the fun police (the film sounds awful) but nope, doesn't qualify.

Also, can we make it a new rule to hide recently released entries for a while? Asking cause someone wants to add The I-Land to Live Action Tv, and so far it qualifies, but it just came out.

I just looked at Last Blood's Metacritic score, and it's just below the threshold at 29 (IIRC the Metacritic threshold is 30). Plus, the film's only in its first week, so the 7.2 score may be a fluke. Ah, well. Only time will tell.

I might be right. Last time I checked the IMDb score, it had been knocked down to 7.1. But like I said earlier, only time will tell if it'll go down further.

The following example was removed from Advertising with the edit reason "Even if the ad was poorly received at the time before the election, the actions of Trump and his administration have vindicated it. Therefore, not a valid example."


  • During the extremely contentious 2016 Presidential Election, one thing that all sides definitely agreed on was that the anti-Trump ad "Tuck Frump" was a perfect representation of the worst of Trump's opposition. Beginning with a very young girl imploring Trump to "shut the fuck up", the ad proceeds to blast Trump for making statements that could be interpreted as personal attacks... while making plenty of personal attacks against him. Some of the things that the ad claims Trump to have said are blatantly fabricated note , and numerous response videos have been made to debunk the fallacious claims. The ad on YouTube has about 2,000 likes and about 108,000 dislikes as of May 2019 (less than 1,000 likes and about 65,000 dislikes as of October 2016, for perspective) and the comments (which cannot be viewed as the comment section was eventually disabled) were almost unanimously negative, with even people who don't like Donald Trump expressing dislike for the ad.

That edit reason sounds suspiciously like "Trump actually was a bad president, so this ad was right and therefore not Horrible", which seems ROCEJ-breaking to me. The video still has a like/dislike ratio of 2191 to 112221, so it doesn't look like there's been a significant improvement in the ad's reception.
