Movie 43. A candidate for one of the worst movies ever. Plus a whole slew of lowest common denominator 'comedies'

Saving grace: Almost said 'Fever Pitch' until I realised it was neither the Colin Firth nor the John Cusack movie. Reluctantly have to acknowledge Dumb & Dumber although it did pave the way to the river of shit that followed. EDIT: Now an Oscar winner, Lol

Inflicted on us Rush Hour 1 & 2, the worst X-Men movie and Tower Heist. Better hit rate as a producer to be fair. Serious allegations of misconduct do not help his reputation.

Terrible, terrible writer. Total hack & regular conspirator with "mystery box" JJ Abrams. Let me present the case against:

1) His "revisions" to the original script of 'Prometheus' completely ruined the story. 2) His script for 'Star Trek Into Darkness' was dumb as a box of rocks and totally unfitting for a Star Trek movie. 3) 'Cowboys & Aliens' and 'Tomorrowland' could both have been interesting original ideas, but again, he manages to simultaneously dumb down and overly complicate any script he works on. 4) And let's not even talk about the utter sham that was "not making it up as we go along, honest" Lost

Saving grace: maybe the Watchmen series will be ok? With him on-board it's a major concern. Instead it has to be the story editor on a few episodes of Nash Bridges. Yep, he's that bad.

Otto Bathurst was born in June 1971 in Hammersmith, London, England as Otto Benjamin Charles Bathurst. He is a director and producer, known for Robin Hood (2018), Criminal Justice (2008) and Black Mirror (2011).

Robin Hood (2018) - a movie not so much directed as shat out.

Wouldn't be at all surprised if he never gets to direct a second movie as a result of this turd.

Saving grace: has a good record as a tv director - should stick to shorter form storytelling.
