Hmm never seen that one xbreaka, book is good though.

Mine would probably have to be Scary Movie 1 and 3 (didn't see 2, but I bet it would be equally horrible). The funny thing is that I was forced to watch SM3... our whole grade was going on an end of the year trip, and in the bus I was in, it was the movie they played.

That's a hard question. If we are talking about just purley horrible ass-factor, I'd have to say Old School or My Big Fat Greek Wedding. If you are talking about a movie being overrated, I think Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon is the most overrated movie of all time. Either that, or Napolean Dynamite

That would definatly have to be "Groom Lake." A movie written, produced, directed and starring William Shatner. William Shatner at his best...or worst. tard tard

without doubt - The Core.

Utterly no attempt at a sensible story line, no attempt to even make the technicalities of it plausible, not even the technicalities of real life stuff were researched (OMFG!! 404 NOT FOUND?!!1one2), poor script, predictable roles, even worse casting.

Only redeemed by the hilarious (meant to be horrifying) pigeon scene at the beginning and the fact that due its sheer idiocy, the entire film was a comedy from start to end.

Most hyped and disappointing movie was definately The Blair Witch Project. Wow what a snorefest.

Catwoman was terrible, but I enjoyed it. Possibly because it WAS terrible, and I went in knowing it would be, so that takes the edge off. But I concede that it was utter pants.

My three top worst are, for different reasons, Batman & Robn, Mrs. Doubtfire and Howard the Duck.

Batman and Robin for complete ineptitude on every level - there are movies which are technically okay but just inspire no excitement or interest whatseover (Volcano leaps to mind), but B&R was just technically inept on every level from the script up.

Mrs. doubtfire is just the most madlin peice of sentimental dross every conceived. I think there are two Robin Williams - the good one (Insomnia, Fisher King, Good Morning Vietname etc, etc) and the one in THIS (and Jack and Patch Adams,also unfortunately etc.!

Howard the Duck. Enough said.

I don't think you can really pour too much ire on the low-budget stuff, but I would like to nominate special mentions for Guyver (Poor, poor Mark Hamill ...) and Earth vs. The Giant Spider (the remake).

Oh. And Thunderbirds ... And Spy Kids 3D ... This could go on ...

Galaxy Quest works MUCH better if you're familiar with not only the original Star Trek series, but also with the behind-the-scenes bickering among the cast. I personally love Galaxy Quest and just picked it up a few days ago for about $8 at Walmart. smile

Wow.. Galaxy Quest is brilliant.

I've watched a plethora of really awful films in my day, but those are all cheesy low budget ones that no one's ever heard of before.

Worst film I've ever seen that people have actually heard of? BATTLEFIELD EARTH. My god, what a waste of talent and time and money and film that movie was. I have never walked out of a movie before, but that one came extremely close.

I know there are more, but nothing comes to mind at the moment, other than that.

Single worst film I have ever seen is xXx. I was in awe of its sheer poopness. Took me quite a few hours to get my head around how a film can be that bad.

Close runners up would have to be...

Die Another Day
28 Days Later (both in the same couple of months as xXx...god that was a depressing time for cinema)
Vanity Fair (not sure this is on full release yet - DO NOT SEE IT)

Most of the Pokemon/digimon crap is really awfull.. if they count.
Otherwize the first I could think of was Baby Geniouses and Snowboard Academy. Not anything I can recomend.

Ill never get how Bob Clark, from a excellent tit-movie Porky's could do a movie such as Baby Geniouses!

I thought House of Sand and Fog was pretty good.

I don't understand why everyone hated Envy. I really think everything that people say is "bad" about that is done that way on purpose. I thought it was brilliant.

What?! NO! I saw the first one, and I'm not ashamed to admit that I acctually liked it razz

The worst movie I think I've ever seen was : "Bruce Lee Fights Back - FROM THE GRAVE". Yes, it's not got Bruce Lee in it*, and the plot was nearly (if not entirely) non-existant. Utter, utter crap. But with a title like that, what the hell was I expecting? A martial arts classic that wasn't a cash in on the star's death?!

Cheers,
Arktic.

*Though it DOES feature 'Bruce Le', a supposed 'look alike'. Not quite the same, is it.

If you want to see a truly bad movie pick up a Copy of Ed Wood's Plan Nine from Outer Space.

The most strings holding up props you'll ever see in a movie.

You can't say Plan 9!

Let's face it, there's an awful lot of terrible films redeemed by love - I have a particulat soft spot fro The Return Of Captan Invincible, for instance, but that doesn't make it good. Noit by a looooooong way ...

Yeah!

Plan 9 from Outer Space is simply one of the MOST entertaining pieces of crap EVER!

For anyone who doesn't know, this is *that* film who's leading star (Bella Lugosi) died before they could shoot more than one scene - so for the rest of the film, his character is played by a double (who doesn't look much like Lugosi), who spends most of his time walking around with his cape infront of his face!

Some of the technical errors are sheer class (such as when some scenes start at night, then suddenly switch to daytime, and vice versa), and you can't find better Z-Grade acting ANYWHERE. The dialogue is so cheesey you'd be hard pressed to find anything more cheesey at the cheese counter of your local cheese supplier's cheese shop. It's a *tad* cheesey, you might say wink

Cheers,
Arktic.

I think Ed Wood should actually be praised more than he seems to be disliked for his movies. Every movie he made was awful, but the thing is, he kept doing it. The man knew what he wanted, and he got stuff done, sure it was bad, but he was persistent, and I actually look up to him for that.

Seriously.

I loved "House of the Dead" just so inept on every level. Like when they open up a trapdoor and go down into some catacombs under the house, this guy says.... "I think we're in some catacombs underneath the house." IDIOT!!!! Who wrote that? The same person who named the Island "The Island of Death". Pure genius.

The acting and dubbing was abysmal and all the kids were in there early 30's, and only two of the girls were hot. It had those fantastically annoying spinny camera stuff and annoying shots of computer games plastered into it. (actually those parts were genuinely bad) How come all thse kids are suddenly proficient in all small arms and martial arts and sword fighting? Doesn't make a lick of sense. I saw it with this mate and we were the only people there in the cinema, laughing. It was great. I love that movie. Like he said "go on IMDB if it's got 4 out of 10, don't see it. If it's got 2 out of 10, see it."

I like pretty much every film I've seen though. This is a tough question for me.

My least favourite film (though strangely enough not the worst film I've ever seen) is "Pulp Fiction" I have a very long attention span, but that film bored the snot out of me. Just mind-numbingly dull on every level. Just no good characters, no good stories, appaling direction. To disguise the fact that there's no story, he had to mix it up to make it interesting, and failed. It didn't even look good, it was simply a wave of sh!t. A pretentious, indulgent, dull, boring, tide of smart-arse remarks, terrible characters, unpleastness and a guy with a big chin with his head up his own rectum. The most memorable bits are repeats of scenes or lines from other films, that did it better. There's one half decent scene in all of it's 2 hours plus running time.

However at least it's vaguely professionally put together. "L.A. Heat" starring Lawrence Hilton-Jacobs on the other hand, isn't. There's one scene when Hilton-Jacobs is sat there and you can hear the director of screen saying "she walks into the room and says 'this place is a mess'" cut to a shot of a woman walking into the room saying "this place is a mess". One scene goes on for ages and you can't see anything as it's too dark, but it's a guy in a garage getting in a car, he drives off and you hear someone shout "Cut!!!" then someone else shouts "keep rolling, keep rolling!!!" If you listen carefully (or not so carefully in some cases) you can hear someone shouting "Action!!!" at the start of so many shots and scenes. Find it, it's hilarious and depressing at the same time. That's probably the worst film I've seen from a technical standpoint. Better than "Pulp Fiction" though.

All in my own opinion though.

The worst films I've ever seen are those that only run on TV and are made with 5th grade actors and lots of people who'll never do anything else than bad TV movies, because they're simply not good enough for anything else.


Other "more famous" bad films are:


CYBORG COP 2
That film is hilariously bad. I especially liked the fact, that they had only one shot of a dying cyborg. So everytime a cyborg died in the film, they randomly edited the same shot in over and over again. (wich was cleary a puppet by the way).
Lots of archive shots wich have no connection at all to the rest of the film and the worst editing I've ever seen.

DREAMCATCHER
That one nearly made me walk out of the cinema. But thats something I'd never do. If I'd do that, I'd have done it though. Totally bad in every aspect. Total randomness.

MESSIDOR
A swiss film like "thelma and louise", over 2 hours long... in french... filmed with static shots lasting forever... and the ugliest actors ever.

AI
First half was very good, but as soon as the moon turns into a big ballon with those running man style bikes the film just gets worse and worse...

STAR WARS EPISODE 2
Yep, I hate that film. I don't think I've ever felt that insulted by a movie. Every dialogue, actong moment and every minute of it insulted my intelligence as a viewer and as a human being. Hate it hate it hate it...



PS: Galaxy Quest rules! wink

I saw this movie yesterday, and I thought it was fantastic. Not my favorite Tarantino film, but still great. The basic thing that I loved about it was that it was like eating a huge burger- "Pumpkin" and "Honey Bunny" in the beginning as the top piece of bread, and the end with them and Jules and Vince as the bottom piece of bread. These small pieces of breat hold a very big, complex piece of meat (Jules and Vince) with tomato (Marcellus), mayo (Mia), ketchup (The Drug Dealer), cheese (Bruce Willis), and lettuce (Quentin Tarantino) inbetween.

Suprised to read that... I'll admit 28 Days later was incredibly 'random' - right word? but still, It was interesting seeing a deserted London.

Die Another Day is the worst bond film ever made though. With most films you put a bit of CG on... sort of like the icing on a cake. In Die Another Day, there was more icing than cake biggrin

Didn't really qualify as a bond film. The only similarities were the characters, and even they were different.

Worst movies ever:

1492- Conquest of Paradise - not even the superbly amazing Vangelis score redeems this one. Gerard Depardiau is incoherent as Christopher Columbus. Yawn

Freddy Got Fingered - this is just filth

Battlefield Earth - I watched this thinking I'd give it a chance but no...utterly uncompelling

AI - the production values are awesome, but I found myself tremendously depressed at the end of this...

DUDE! Although most of it is rather disturbing...I have to say that there are enough parts of sheer brilliance that makes this film rather good. I'm not a fan of Tom Green, at all...but I was laughing hysterically for a shitload of it.

The animated cartoon was side-splitting.



worst film...let's see...this is a tough one, it'll take me some time to get, i dont know there's none that were really that bad, ill have to think about it, give me some....MASTER OF DISGUISE! I HATE THIS FILM! TERRIBLE TERRIBLE TERRIBLE I WANT TO PUKE.

2 years ago, I was given a copy of this on VHS for my birthday...waht kind of a gift? a good one. it was promptly destroyed in my backyard using a hammer and gravity.

actually theres one film worse...but it doens't exist. i refuse to mention it. (and it has a great cast too!)

That reminded me of another HORRIBLE Dana Carvey movie - Clean Slate. I shudder when I think about it....

Heh. I must admit I laughed once or twice too, but I had a very bad taste in my mouth after watching it (no elephant jokes now, please!)

ACtually, while it wasn't awful I'd agree that I found the Lord of the Rings (or the first one, which is all I've seen) pretty dull. I mean, let's face it, the plot is - They Don't Get There Yet, Isn't New Zealand Pretty?

Mind you, I don't see how anyone can read the books without wanting to chew their own legs off in violent desperation.

Amen.

1. As an adaptation, it sucked. The names were the same, and I picked out some (massively out of context) lines, but otherwise it was a sad attempt to piggyback on the fame of the book. Fer crissake, JUAN RICO was a Filipino, not a blonde-hair, blue-eyed surfer dude! A basic plot point from the book was mangled beyond recognition -- humanity ALWAYS KNEW the Bugs were intelligent! ("Animals don't build starships") Don't even get me started on what they did to Sargeant Zim!

2. As a movie, on its own, it sucked. None of the characters were likeable; I cheered when some of them died BECAUSE THEY DESERVED IT. The plot was predictable and trite -- who didn't know Dizzy was gonna die?

3. As an action movie, it sucked. The movie's idea of the Mobile Infantry were thugs with bike helmets, running around in mobs and shooting off a clip of ammo every time one of them belched. Their weapons included rifles and nuclear bombs -- but nothing in between -- and their tactics and discipline ranked right up there with a pack of soccer hooligans. A single MI from the book could take on the entire MI from the movie and not even break a sweat.

Paul Verhoeven may not deserve being dragged into the street and shot for "Starship Troopers", but he should never, ever, ever be allowed to make another movie.

Everyone in the theater walked out except for my friend and I and if I hadn’t actually paid to see it I would have split as well. Fortunately I’ve been able to block all memory of this movie out of my mind except for the title so that I never accidentally try and watch it again.

Call me an old mister stupid if you will, but ... surely the point of Starship Troopers is ultimately that the characters aren't likeable?

You start off in Beverly Hlls 90120 mode, you work your way through all the War Movie cliches and then you get to great bit where Opergruppenfuhrer Doogie Hauser M.D. touches the brain bug and say "It's afraid" ... and instead of the sub Star Trek we-are-more-alike-than-different-and-can-perhaps-one-day-exist-in-peace schtick every human being on screen cheers their litle heads off. And don't forget that it ends without the war having been won.

So, at thrisk of looking pretentious, I'm going to defend Starship Troopers as a very funny satire about the dehumanising effects of Fascism. So there.

And Robert heinlein is a horrible, horrible Nazi who's written a couple of quite readable books and a few more utterly reprehensible ones.

I dunno if anyone's said this yet, but "Plan Nine from Outer Space" is the worst movie ever. Ever.

Just look at all the horrible mistakes
