30 terrible movies saved by great endings 1

Our list of bad movies with good endings includes one of Peter Jackson’s works before his time as the director of The Lord of the Rings franchise. Written by Jackson, Fran Walsh, Stephen Sinclair, and Danny Mulheron, Meet the Feebles features Jim Henson-esque, animal-figured puppets who are members of stage troupe. However, whereas the Muppets characterize positivity, naïve folly, and innocence, the Feebles largely present negativity, vice, and other misanthropic characteristics.

Meet the Feebles is super uncomfortable to watch, and many viewers would have easily locked it away in their repressed-memory-vault, if not for its shocking violent ending. After one of the puppets’ bosses verbally abuses the hippo performer named Heidi, the latter becomes extremely and uncontrollably angry that she takes a machine gun and goes on a rampage. Heidi then serves 10 years in prison for the crime she committed and is later rehabilitated to work as a grocery store cashier.

Interesting facts about BTS
  • The group name, “BTS” stands for the Korean expression Bangtan Sonyeondan which translates to “Bulletproof Boy Scouts”. Band member J-Hope said that they chose this name because it represents BTS’s desire “to block out stereotypes, criticisms, and expectations that aim on adolescents like bullets.” But that isn’t the only meaning behind the name. In 2017, BTS said, as part of their new brand identity, that their name would also stand for Beyond the Scene” which extended their name to mean “growing youth BTS who is going beyond the realities they are facing, and going forward.”
  • BTS was originally intended to be a hip-hop group, similar to YG Entertainment’s 1TYM. This was because Big Hit Entertainment CEO Bang Si-hyuk met with RM and was very impressed by his rapping talents. However, Bang Si-hyuk changed his mind and decided that today’s youth needed “a hero who can lend them a shoulder to lean on, even without speaking a single word.”
  • BTS has said that all of the following musicians have inspired their music; Post Malone, Eminem, Seo Taiji and Boys, Nas, Kanye West, Drake, Charlie Puth, Danger, and Queen.
  • The band’s first English-language single, “Dynamite”, was released on August 21st. Its video broke the YouTube record for the most viewed music video premiere, grabbing the attention of three million viewers, and it set a new record for the most viewed video on the first day of release. “Dynamite” is also the first music video on YouTube to surpass 100 million views in less than one day.
  • BTS has been often labeled as “easily the biggest and most successful name in K-pop in the world” that can “do things no other name in their genre can.” Time magazine has gone as far as calling them the “Princes of Pop.”
