11 Weirdest Missteps by Famous Movie Directors - 11 Points Countdown
written by Sam Greenspan

I've got a new episode of the 11 Points Countdown today. (Although it was filmed back when we were stuck in the weird turquoise room seen a few previous times, not the usual location.)

I really loved this discussion with my friends from Battleship Pretension about weird missteps by famous movie directors. It was definitely an interesting one -- and a deep examination of the difference between a weird movie choice, a misstep and a weird misstep.
