I'm pretty sure Gooby counts, though it doesn't have a trope page yet. 3.2/10 IMDb, 20% Rotten Tomatoes, and a majority of reviews are 'why does this exist' 'Gooby is creepy' and 'this film is NOT for kids despite being made for kids' plus a ton of family-unfriendly violence and morals.

THANK YOU. It's been my life mission to find that movie again after seeing a DVD at a Tractor Supply. You just inspired my to look for what looks like a disaster again. I'll do a writeup if I ever watch it.
I've never heard of it, but googling it gives me... a terrifying monstrosity. It also only made about 3,500 at the box office...
I'm fine with adding it to the list.
I haven't watched it either, but from reading about it I thought it looked 'promising' XD
Its title makes me think of Dolan

You mean this thing? Never heard of it, but I'm very afraid.
F The Prom I knew of through I Hate Everything's review of it. It's on Netflix, and I think my girlfriend saw it at some point.
Yeah, my friend saw it, and she and her sister both agreed it was one of the worst things ever. (Besides Leo the Lion, another movie they had the displeasure of seeing.)
I mean, as far and F the Prom goes, my girlfriend thought it was... alright.
I'll need to see it myself some time, though I can already tell YMMV.F The Prom is very unkind to this movie.
Yeahhhh, that could use a trip to the complaining thread.
Hey, three of the listed films, Gotti, Reprisal, and the recently added Escape Plan 2: Hades, are all by the same production company, Emmett Furla Oasis. Should I move the entries to Repeat Offenders?
Hey guys, I've had a question up on the Discussion section for Horrible.Transformers for a while now that has gone unanswered so I just thought I'd ask here: Does Transformers: The Last Knight qualify? General consensus (at least based off of what I've witnessed) seems to be that even the fans of the previous films hate it (meaning it failed to appeal to its niche), with its Strictly Formula nature going too far, wasted characters and plots, continuity errors, and just general disdain for everything except for Cogman and the performances of Peter Cullen and Frank Welker being independent evidence, along with its 15% Rotten Tomatoes score and how it was the first Transformers film since the 1986 original to bomb. It sounds like it fits, but I just wanted to make sure before adding it as an example (and thus having to do a write-up that might go to waste).
I'd say no. The YMMV page for it lists enough positive tropes (such as Ensemble Dark Horse, Author's Saving Throw, and even Signature Scene) for it to qualify. Age Of Extinction seems to be the more poorly received film, but that did well at the box office.
Then again all of my knowledge of Tranformers comes from Bumblebee.
Understood. Thank you for the help.
Anyone know more about Matthew Rosenberg's X-Men run? I only followed it from the sidelines, but it was near unanimously criticized as unbearably bleak and depressing and featured a whole bunch of characters dying in ways that made no sense, most infamously Wolfsbane of the New Mutants, who was stomped to death by a group of drunken fratbros while putting up no resistance. From what I can tell it's handily dethroned Matt Fraction's run as the second-worst in the book's history; some even say it's tied with Austen for the #1 spot.
That run has Author's Saving Throw on its page, which implies it must have at least some form of quality.
Then again, I don’t know much about X-Men.
I disagree with the notion that having a single positive YMMV trope disqualifies something from being Horrible. Especially when it's just an Author's Saving Throw, that basically just means an earlier screwup was mitigated and made more palatable. That alone would hardly redeem the whole run. I could see Rosenberg's run counting considering the nearly universal disdain I've seen for it. Although I haven't read it myself.
I'd agree. And when it comes to things like Ensemble Dark Horse, we have to remember these works can have fans- they just need to be a vast minority of people. Who says those fans can't love a certain character, or think the author did things well? The negatives just need to overwhelm the positives.
We'd have to cut a lot of stuff if this was like Complete Monster in terms of "all entries must be entirely lacking in redeeming features".
Should I add something about how Inhumans is inexplicably going to be on Disney+ or no? Also no one has answered as to whether Gotti, Reprisal, and Escape Plan 2: Hades should be moved to Repeat Offenders due to being by the the same production company, Emmett Furla Oasis, or not.
I’d say move them.
Flex Entertainment is an obscure record label notorious for having very amateur rappers that sound like a middle school student trying to make a rap song, as well as rap about nonsensical things, such as foot fetishes and Sonic the Hedgehog bodypillows, and steal others' music. (They take their work seriously, which means they're not a bunch of joke artists.) They pretty much lack anything that makes some rappers, such as Lil Pump, So Bad, It's Good.
Submarine Man, one of the rappers signed under Flex, is already on Horrible.Musicians, but I want to also include other Flex rappers, such as Lil Meerkat. Should I group several rappers under the Flex Entertainment bullet point on Horrible.Musicians, list them separately, or put a Flex Entertainment example on the Music Companies section of Horrible.Music Other?
Has anyone dared to sit through Gooby yet?
Gooby sounds terrible. I dunno why people feel an urge to add it, but honestly if they do, there's probably no need to watch it just to make sure or whatever.

How well does it match the trope?
