In a savage attack, head of Universal Ronald Meyer has attacked some of the movies his studio have released over the last few years, with The Wolfman coming into the fire!
“We make a lot of sh*tty movies. Every one of them breaks my heart. We set out to make good ones,
” he said. “One of the worst movies we ever made was ‘Wolfman.’ The script never got right, [the cast] was awful. The director was wrong. Benicio [del Toro] stunk. It all stunk.
Meyer continued with an attack on the recent Cowboys and Aliens!:
“‘Cowboys and Aliens’ wasn’t good enough. Forget all the smart people involved in it, it wasn’t good enough. All those little creatures bouncing around were crappy. I think it was a mediocre movie, and we all did a mediocre job with it.
Also the Will Farrel flop”Land of the Lost,” came out of the rant! “‘Land of the Lost’ was just crap. I mean, there was no excuse for it. The best intentions all went wrong.“
The only film that seemed to escape the rant was the recent Scott Pilgrim film even though it did not do that well at the box office!
“Scott Pilgrim vs the World” was a good movie but was disappointed that it didn’t do as well as the studio hoped. Meyer also admitted he was proud of “United 93,” which he said “wasn’t a big moneymaker, but it’s a film I believe every American should see
