Welcome back to the WTF Happened? series, a collaborative effort, along with the Jock and Nerd Podcast, to take a look at some of the worst movies imaginable. For this entry we are going to take a look at the 2013 adaptation of the Dark Horse comic’s mini-series The Rest In Peace Department (R.I.P.D.) This also marks the second entry in what is so far a continuing look at poorly received comic book movies with Ryan Reynolds attached.
Note: Please remember, what follows is not a 100% accurate recounting of the events that led to the creation of the film, but a speculation based off of research that I have cultivated. Also be sure to listen to the WTF EPISODE RIGHT HERE as well!
