Doomed Films So Doomed They Spawned Another Film

Doomed Films So Doomed They Spawned Another Film

Cursed vs. Doomed

When you desecrate a sacred tomb while filming, you’re just asking for a curse. If an antisemite is making a movie about Jesus, the set’s going to be cursed and people are going to get struck by lighting. If a movie just can’t get off the ground or if everything goes strangely, hilariously wrong, that’s just good ol’ doom out for a joyride. The Exorcist is a cursed film, Terry Gilliam’s Don Quixote is straight-up doomed.

Another difference between cursed films and doomed films seems to be “Can we make a semi-humorous documentary about these film mishaps?” If yes, it’s probably doomed. If no, there’s probably a creepy website that hasn’t been updated since 2002 all about how and why that particular movie is cursed, created by a grown man wearing fingerless gloves.

Don’t Die: The True Dynamic Duo of Kate Bishop and Clint Barton


Hawkeye..s

One lavender scented heiress with perfect form and one ex-carnie slash arrow-slinging Avenger who probably has to google instructions on how to boil water. What could go wrong?

Turns out, a lot

It doesn’t help that Clint Barton (a.k.a Hawkeye) needs a purpose, a direction, an order, in life and it just so happens to be a day he’s not being bossed around by Captain America or S.H.I.E.L.D. It also doesn’t help that trouble seems to constantly be five feet behind, wanting to ask for his help, and the direction his heart takes him is backwards, right to them. His heart is not a terribly good compass. He gets in over his head and ends up falling off of some great precipice, usually both literal and figurative.

It does help, however, that in Clint’s little vacay from this plane of existence (more or less), his trusty bow was entrusted to wildly talented Kate Bishop (also a.k.a Hawkeye) and it didn’t take long after Clint revealed himself to be alive for her to give him that trust back…not the bow, though, she definitely stole that along with Clint’s respect. She’s got his back when it gets bad…and it helps that she has a car.
