The War of the Worlds

Byron Haskin’s 1953 adaptation of H.G. Wells’ classic is the one that critics feel most closely captured the spirit of the book, and in spite of its technical limitations, it made full use of Wells’ timeless themes while incorporating Cold War commentary.

Batman & Robin

Joel Schumacher’s entry in the Batman canon, which starred George Clooney as the Caped Crusader and Chris O’Donnell as his sidekick Robin, famously “killed” the late 1980s-to-mid-1990s iteration of the franchise in a flurry of batsuit nipples and bad Mr. Freeze puns. Still, it’s got some kitsch value and remains, for some, bizarrely watchable.
