Occasionally, the Avenue treats you to a scene from a movie that is so awful it can only make you laugh. Often those films tend to be from yesteryear, adding to the myth that older films tended to be crappier. This is of course not true and to prove this, here is a scene from 2010. The film is the latest remake of Moby Dick and the first time I watched a clip of this, erm, “film”, I had to be convinced that this wasn’t a parody. This film has genuinely some of the worst effects I’ve seen in a long time and I don’t mean that in any way positive or even endearing. Don’t believe me? Well, here are just 80 seconds of this spectacular. Next time you go to your local dvd store, look at the bargain bin: somewhere near the bottom of the barrel, you’ll surely find a copy if you desire one.

P.S. Below there’s a trailer. Barry Bostwick is credited as a Golden Globe winner. I don’t recall him being nominated for this movie, though…
