Mamma Mia. If you can think of anything more dreadful I would like to hear about it. Thank you.
but worse than Mamma Mia?
Its like a 2 hour version of Loose Women, there is a sing-a-long version, its stars several schmaltzy cunts such as Pierce Brosnan and Colin fucking Firth. Oh, and these cunts sing too. Oh, and an ex made me sit through it, then she sang through it too.
i can be forgiven
and most straight men will tolerate a fair amount of shit in order to touch boob.
Hence why straight men will watch this film.
I like Abba, I didn't listen to Abba for around a year and a half after seeing that film.
...flimsy nonsense but very watchable.
I would nominate Domino - couldn't sit through it.
I like most stuff in some sort of way, and don't normally get that reaction - can't think of another film I'd even put close in terms of my negative response. But everything about 25th Hour just seemed to rile the shit out of me for some reason.
Rather, while no one has eradicated bilge like Tomb Raider or Batman Forever from history it's hard to really make any sort of case for it to be a 'worst movie ever'.
although I can accept that I may well be the only person that does.
Bio Dome is a splendid film. Some of Pauly Shore's best work, and certainly Kylie Minogue's best film.
I feel a tremendous sense of loss.
i thought it was experimental ear canal surgery
Hard to watch and prententious, granted but worse than, I dunno, White Chicks? Or Four weddings and a funeral?
It is pleasing to realise that there are people out there with such wildly differing opinions.
I was tempted to add a question mark.
are you fucking kidding me are you fuckking kidding me
like the godfather or pulp fiction
if people don't like it, they can fuck off
never seen a film so desperate to try and make me sad.
...it when a film really goes for it in terms of trying to manipulate your emotions in a ham-fisted way.
the lovely bones.
Actually that is the worst film ever made. The Notebook.
the gf needs to learn - always defer to my movie choices!
90 minutes of my life that i will never get back.
or The Shawshank Redemption
one million hours of terribleness
But it's like Noe thought, "Hey, people obviously liked Irreversible mainly for the long periods of monotony and the twirly hyperactive bluebottle camera thing" and stretched those two concepts out to tedious infinity. It did make me feel like I was on something though.
As is Halloween III which is possibly the worst movie ever. It's a bit worse than Shawshank.
I'm just going with the 'post a perfectly good film' vibe that's pervading through this thread.
I did find Juno massively cringeworthy after expecting it to be brilliant though. Not that it's the worst film ever, but still.
While You Were Sleeping
The Holiday. Two terrible films stuck together. Dull, directionless, saccharine poorly-acted nonsense. Over two hours long as well.
"so bad it's funny" category. That bit where Cameron Diaz was air-guitaring round the living room? I lol'd and lol'd and lol'd.
But it's pretty funny and enjoyable to watch because of that.
before someone came round. Never ever listening to my boss' film recommendations again
this is a real film.
Although B Monkey and the last two Matrix films deserve honourable mentions for being atrocious.
Way to ruin a great film, Wachowskis. My kids are never going to know they exist.
it strives so hard to be right-on and it is just totally schematic, unbelievable and retarded. And stupid people think it's clever.
But for plain crapness Best Defense with STRATEGIC GUEST STAR Eddie Murphy takes some beating: http://bit.ly/fHxlqC
after all the acclaim it got.
agree about crash though
Especially since it rips off Magnolia in such a clumsy, self-satisfied and dismayingly moronic way. And Brendan Fraser. Ugh.
hated hated hated this film, by the time you get to the contractually-obliged-section-to-let-zeta-jones-do-some-"acting"-oh daddy! bit, I was ready to kill each and every person involved. Andy Garcia was dead to me after this and he was the only half decent cast member...
That ending. Argh. And everything else too. Keano is such a dumbo. Recently Battle LA and Skyline were very bad.
I just watched Cool Hand Luke recently and I don't get why everybody likes that. It seemed to last about eight hours. But it is not the worst.
Its terrible but still enjoyable.
where Kevin Costner is a rich serial killer and Dane Cook thinks he's cool and wants to follow him around while he murders people. And William Hurt is the devil on Costner's back. And Kevin Costner's daughter in the film has murdered someone also. Cue discussion of 'the murder gene'. Demi Moore is the cop.
an absolute disgrace....
or benjamin button
or one i haven't seen
and i've not seen fred: the movie but the trailer aged me terribly.
The Lovely Bones
So glad I'm not the only idiot that like this film.
What do you get when you cross an owl with a bungee cord?
i'm sorry but it sucks. the acting is shit. and not quirky amateur shit, cloying shit shit. the script is just a huge nothing, full of pretentious, really unfunny, uninsightful quips and arguments.
ultimately though, it's the worst film because it tries way too hard to be something it isn't, which just makes it a complete chore to sit through.
i really enjoyed the book when i was about 14, so when the movie came out i was excited to see how it had been adapted for the screen. it was a major disappointment. i had such high hopes, too :(
also, i am currently watching the princess diaries. cute film, but how shit was the princess diaries II: royal engagement? woof.
would include 500 Days Of Summer and Rachel Getting Married. the latter made me ill, and after a nosey at the IMDB turns out i wasn't the only one. genuinely queasy it made me and other people. 500 Days.. might be the worst highly-praised-in-some-quarters film i've ever seen, certainly in memory.
the character of the wacky best friend with the long hair who says supposedly off the wall things made me want to hurl the tv outta the window.
agreed on 500DOS though.
I really felt like it suffered from pacing issues but there was a decent film in there somewhere.
I had no idea that the man playing Rachel's fiance was Tunde Adebimpe from TVOTR.
Just unbelievably and inexplicably dire.
But Ace Ventura: When Nature Calls is surely a strong contender.
When Nature Calls in a masterpiece.
Firmly in the "so bad it's good" category.
This film wound me up so much. Awful. The social and political values I was getting fed from it drove up the wall. I don't usually look for 'socio'political' messages in Steve Martin films but this one was beating me over the head, I couldn't ignore it.
Looking at things in a slightly different way, the very worst film ever made is also one of the greatest - 'Shark Attack 3: Magaladon'. It's a bloody masterpiece.
If I may also suggest "Skinned Deep", featuring Warwick Davis as a character called "Plates" who is covered in white body paint and has dinner plates in a little holster on his back which he throws around as weaponry, and a man with a steel jaw like Baron Ünderbheit from the Venture Brothers called "The Surgeon General". It features the greatest octogenarian biker gangfight ever commited to film.
You should also check out David Carradine's "Future Force" (Future Zone in the US) in which he plays a renegade futuristic private contract cop with a flying robotic fist.
had no idea.
and all other high school dance films.
I'm Still Here
IT'S MY FAVORITE FILM. REMINDS ME OF MY EX GIRFRIEND :/ :/ :/ :/
A film I saw on a plane that was actually so bad I had to google it to make sure I hadn't just hallucinated it after being awake for 33 hours. The plot synopsis on IMDB:
"Texan Charles Farmer left the Air Force as a young man to save the family ranch when his dad died. Like most American ranchers, he owes his bank. Unlike most, he's an astrophysicist with a rocket in his barn - one he's built and wants to take into space. It's his dream. The FBI puts him under surveillance when he tries to buy rocket fuel; the FAA stalls him when he files a flight plan - it's post-9/11, after all. His wife is angry when she finds out their bank is initiating foreclosure. Charlie fears failure and decides, precipitously, to launch. Are twenty-first century American dreams just a sign of insanity? Are those who believe in dreamers only fools?"
Just as bleaty and irritating as it sounds. And Bruce Willis is in it! Why, Bruce...
should have burnt before watching.
I always post this, but really, it takes some beating.
"Sgt. Shaved Balls". I need to see this.
Can't wait to watch this. The clip in the first linked showed so much promise. I can't believe it exists.
The Ghosts of Mars
It was obviously soooooo bad that it is hilarious, it is really hard to believe that he had preciously made 'Dark Star', 'Halloween', 'assault on precinct 13', 'the thing'
OH NO! ITS SOME GOTHS!
so so bad. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rr-6ZjlGuBU
This is actually the worst movie ever made.
Most of Tarantino's movies are overrated tbh.
I think a lot of mafia movies are extremely overrated (i.e. Goodfellas)
Goodfella's is Scorcese. I think I'm just not a fan of mafia movies because they take forever to get going that I've already decided the movie is shit before it gets to the good parts.
I wouldn't say Pulp is bad, just far from great.
I don't understand, unless I'm high-jumping into a trolling trap. If you really believe this, go and watch Cop Out. Or Another Stakeout. FFS.
Have you no idea of the vacuum out of which Pulp Fiction arrived? It might seem a bit passe and dated now to some, but there was nothing like that at the time. It's not perfect, but it's witty, discursive and entertaining.
I had blanked this from my memory.
Awful. Absolutely abysmal.
They show exactly what the Naples underworld is like without romanticizing it like most of the other gangster films out there.
Surprised no one has said Belly. Not b/c I think it's bad but b/c people are always hating on it. I love it. Hype Williams giving a gangster movie a hip-hop spin? I couldn't ask for more. Ace soundtrack, BTW.
Awful in every conceivable way in my opinion. I genuinely can't imagine anyone enjoying this.
Surely it can't be THAT bad, can it? *gulp*
Here's what happens;
The writers decide to stop writing the series to concentrate on other, this sparks off an apocalypse in Royston vassey , the characters realise what's actually happening and decide to come into the real world to try to convince the writers to keep the show going, they then kidnap the writers taking them into Royston Vassey, all the writers die, except one of the original writers (not one of the 3 actual writers) who is in a coma, Royston Vassey exists forever more in that comatosed writer's head.
OR DOES IT?
Bag of shite. It reads like a fuck you to the people harping on about wanting more series, that's basically what this film is. A fuck you to their rabid fanbase.
holy mother of fuck, it's awful.
I also really hated that Dr Parnassus film.
I like their reaction to the teen Down Syndrome hooker scene.
That and the cat drowning usually makes people RIIIIILLLY AAAAAAANGRY.
It is an hour and a half of wtf.
any of date/epic/superhero movie or anything of that ilk. unbelievable people actually pay to see them
probably the most predictable plot twist in the history of cinema
It just goes on and on and on and on and on and Jude Law's in it and it just keeps going on and on and it's dreadful and it just won't stop and even when you think it has stopped it hasn't it's still going and going and going and going and going and then a robot cries or something and then the film keeps going dragging on and on and on and on and now I'm in tears screaming at the screen begging the fucking thing to end but it won't it just won't then there's some sort of teddy like a walking teddy and the films still on IT'S STILL FUCKING ON going and going and going and going. Then, finally, it ends, but it's too late. You're life is ruined and you'll never love again.
Oh okay forget all that then.
except I didn't really get the ending. Sort of moved by the rest of it.
Urgh the robot boy chewing the cabbage or whatever it was image has just popped back into my head. Urgh!
So can't really argue about themes etc. All I know was that I couldn't wait for it to end. I was really excited to see it at the time but felt it was a massive disappointment. I think maybe if Kubrick had done it as intended (selfish for dying) it would've been much better, not sure speilburgh was the man for the job. Perhaps I should watch it again to see if I feel any different, but I don't think I can bring myself to do that.
I HATE THAT FILM!
Eyes Wide Shut also doesn't get enough credit.
borrowed it from my folks, fuck knows why, you could make a better movie with a 5D Mk 2, some jakies and a tenner for props
i may have to dump her
watch yer back!
Wolvering was much much worse
Atleast X Men 3 had CGI that looked like it cost more than £4.57
It had a fight on top of a power plant and Hugh Jackman losing his clothes for no real reason.
just remembered watching this.
-Batman and Robin
-the last two Matrix films
-The Heartbreak Kid (The Farrelly version)
-The Three Colours Trilogy (a personal hatred really because all the arty types were in awe of it back then and how "it all so cleverly comes together in the end of the last movie" - no it didn't)
-The Grown Ups
-Vicki Cristina Barcelona
-Die Another Day
All else was failure.
The big blockbuster hollywood kind...
Batman and Robin
Crash (Oscar winning one)
And then there's the zero budget z movies...
Day of the dead 2
Manos: Hand of Fate
you leave Godfrey Ho out of this
It's not an amazing film but it does a decent job of ripping off Vampire: The Masquerade and bringing it to screen.
there are bad movies that try incredibly hard to be deep and meaningful and artistic, but are actually just bollocks (Benjamin Button), and then there are bad movies that don't want to be anything else but good entertainment, but completely fall apart in every possible way (The Tourist).
until i twigged it'd have the kaiser soze ending
then it was a slooooow crawl until the end.
Grown Ups has to be up there too, id never usually watch such drivel but i was made to a few months ago. As suspected, it was the biggest load of guff i'd ever seen
Twilight and the second one, new moon? Utter shitefest mawksome fucktard fests, by the time the boy who looks like Jaws from Moonraker was trying to kill himself in Italy I was shouting encouragement at the tv, and shouting 'put a top on!' at pug nosed crap acting werewolf boy, and they're meant to be fighting for the love of sneery fish faced sulky girl...
I see a lot of bad films and try to take something good away from them but these two were iredeemable.
It's on YouTube if you don't believe me
Mamma Mia is a great film. I saw it twice in the cinema.
What made you want to watch it twice?
goes out into the middle of nowhere completely unprepared and oblivious, then dies.
Good. One less moron on the planet. Not worth making a film of really. Homeless people die like that all the time, none of them are getting a film made commemerating their untimely passing, but this entitled prick wanders off, and whoomp, some bizarro folk hero that folks think is tragic and heroic. No. He was an idiot. He died. The End. Give me back my £10.
xXx, Catwoman, and Sex and the City run it pretty close.
And BLACK SWAN.
What do people have against Benjamin Button?
The first one is Battleship Potemkin next to the plotless hypercapitalist sequel
While usually a total masochist, something has told me that SATC2 would deny me even that perverse pleasure.
SATC2 is great.
It's filled with the least pleasant people in the world. The horse-faced one is practically thinking of leaving her husband because he wants to occasionally stay in on a Tuesday night after work in the apartment they just spent a year renovating, then ends up cheating on him when she goes away to live in a literal palace for a week for free. And she STILL thinks she's a victim.
But even that's not the problem - it's TWO AND A HALF HOURS LONG.
I wouldn't even know where to start with that. I'm not a violent guy, but if I had seen Fincher on the street when I came out of the cinema there is a reasonable chance I would have punched him.
Quite atmospheric, amazing special effects, Pitt and Blanchett are very watchable whatever they're in. Yeah, it was a bit soppy and sickly sweet, but lots of stuff is. I can cope with it once in a while.
1) It's about seventy minutes worth of plot stretched over three hours.
2) Those three hours feel like 60 hours.
3) It takes a brilliant premise and then completely ignores it - there's very little in the film that actually really relates to the fact he's aging backwards bar the breakup with the Blanchett character and that could have been achieved with a random generic serious illness.
4) Far too many choices are utterly silly and remove all conflict. He's born old but he's born in an old people's home so it doesn't really matter.
5) There's absolutely no interest in the psychological effects of his condition.
6) Due to the fact that Brad Pitt couldn't play younger than 35 they cut out the bit where he regressed from an adult to a teenager to a child which is where the psychological fuck-ups would really have started, especially as he'd have needed to find someone to take care of him. They could have done something really interesting with the effects of that on him psychologically.
7) The bulk of the film seeemed to deal with Pitt and Blanchett being the same age which, whilst easy to film, was probably the least interesting period of the premise.
8) It's unbearably soft and schmalzy and basically the exact film everyone who hates Forrest Gump accuses it of being.
9.The entire thing felt like a gutless compromise of a film.
they went out of their way to remove all conflict from the film. His reverse aging has zero effect on the story. Plus the fact that it was written by the same guy who wrote the script for Forrest Gump. Both Gump and Button have literary sources which I haven't read but but I can guess the plots were not practically identical.
-disabled boy falls in love with childhood friend, said girl has artistic aspirations, girl ignores him, boy goes to war, boy hangs around on a boat with an alcoholic, boy travels the world, boy occasionally meets the girl but feels out of place in her cultural/counter-cultural world, girl is hit by tragedy (AIDS, being hit by car while being an idiot who dances in the middle of traffic), boy takes care of girl...
Vin's character learned to handle a gun by playing first person shooter video games. Just brilliant.
My favourite Vin line from that film has to be "If you hit me again, I'm gonna throw you a beatin'"
Seriously guys, what?
KISS MY ARSE, CULTURE.
The worst film I've ever seen, by a long margin. And I've seen Off Beat (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091668/).
I mean, "AND THEN?" and "SWEET/DUDE" are spectacular scenes!
and no, no they're not. Unless you meant spectacularly tedious, unfunny and annoying.
Or Fahrenheit 9/11. That's probably the real answer.
Gigli was so bad I actually switched it off 10 min in. I am surprised I even gave it 10 min.
it was not good.
Worst film I've seen so far, fighting off stiff competition from:
- Ninja Terminator
- Series 7: The Contenders
- Mystic River
It was so, so poorly realised.
Utterly laughable film.
What the hell!!!
i love Fincher's movies but just never got round to seeing it.
Probably made worse by the fact that it's pretty much the antithesis of everything Fincher's ever done.
'Best Movie Ever?' thread just for balance. although i'm sure there's been loads over the years.
WHAT THE FUCK?! This si the worst film ever made ever, ever, ever.
It's like the Scouting for Girls of the film world. Utter shite.
not that I'd ever heard of it before now, but it looks awful and has Jude Law in it. QED.
That said, it has Willem Dafoe as well so can't be the worst EVER.
it's actually pretty strong, and features two great actors, and the twist, though obvious, is well handled? And because it's really funny to watch it with girls who, without fail, will weep for hours afterwards.
No Gerry? surely the worst film ever.
Ctrl + f. YES!
Jaws 3 (plasticine shark)
Chicken Park (Wanna watch it again, was comically poor)
I was about to report you to the mental health police.
But had to pop in to agree with Dune.
The Worst Films Ever Made are:
The Three Colours Trilogy
Enter The Void
Requiem for a dream
Rachel getting Married
The 25th Hour
I wouldn't disagree
the others i couldnt care less about but Gummo is legit good
The Three Colours Trilogy
Enter The Void
Requiem for a dream
are all awesome :D
makes them the worst movies ever?
I cannot even slightly accept Pulp Fiction as a nomination. Sorry.
Change your tampon.
Thought that was sarcasm
Basically Dustin Hoffman just pissing all over his career for 2 hours, accompanied my super awful Emma Thompson. I think the film is aimed at perimenopausal women, which begs the question why was I watching it?
The Happening - Awful. Zoey Deschanel appears to be taking the piss a bit in this one/all films she has ever been in and seems to be on the verge of laughing in every awful scene. I don't blame her. Mark Wahlberg adopts the strangest accent in it as well, speaking like a manchild, just fucking bizarre. As for the storyline...JFC
Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes is probably the worst for me: it's so bad that often when I'm asked what the worst movie ever is I actually first suggest other not so bad ones before the horrible realisation that it even exists comes back to me.
It is pretty bad, though.
WHY WAS THIS EVEN MADE, WHAT AM I EVEN LOOKING AT!?!? kind of way rather than the normal just a bad film kind of way.
The Matrix. "Urgh the sequels were sooo bad, but the original waNO IT WASN'T IT WAS TERRIBLE IN THE FIRST PLACE, I HATED IT BEFORE I EVEN SAW IT AND KNEW EXACTLY WHY AND ALL MY REASONS TURNED OUT TO BE CORRECT.
Cats & Dogs.
HE'S STARTING TO BELIEVE
it's just absolute shit
* Ignores the fact that that Vodka commercial with literally bullet time in it had been screened at the local cinema before front of every single film they say for like 8 months previous to the release of The Matrix *
* edits film in such a way that every single impact or exiting movement in fight scenes is either awkwardly frozen at the least appropriate moment or just cut out entirely *
about a film called Tiptoes: http://www.avclub.com/articles/its-only-the-size-of-your-heart-that-counts-case-f,37238/
Stars Gary Oldman and Matthew McConaughey as twins. Except Gary Oldman is a dwarf. Wow
It's the exact opposite of The Room. Intended as a comedy, but it's one of the most horrifyingly sad films I've ever seen. I have never seen comedy die on the screen quite like that and I was almost physically sick. It was one hell of an experience.
As far as desecrated franchises go, Alien 3 is truly upsetting. And of course, American Beauty, Inception and a ton of films that aren't horrible, they just kind of suck and a lot of people like them way too much because they haven't seen very many movies.
1 to 3 is a conceptual trilogy, 1 is birth, 2 is life and 3 is death. it all ties in together so well that i don't really see how you could hate 3. arguably 2 is the weakest link in the chain, but it's also the most fun so whatever.
Alien vs Predator 2
Snakes on a Train (last couple of minutes excepted)
I dare you to watch The Hottie and The Nottie without trying to scratch your own skin off with a blunt spoon!
But "Killer Bitch" starring Alex Reid (and scored by one of the guys from Alabama 3) is the only film I've ever turned off, it's not even a film that's 'so bad it's good' like Showgirls/The Room etc.
what an awful awful film. a guy i work with reckons the comic is ok, but the film is definitely the worst i have ever seen.
i really hated the Mesrine films too. i couldn't even finish the second because it was all so shit.
The first one was pretty crap.
My friend forced me to watch this once and my god WHAT HAS BEEN SEEN. A genuinely bafflingly awful film, topped off by this disturbing scene NWS WARNING http://www.jsrpages.co.uk/scansv/valdes/Yoima_Valdes-800_Bullets-26.jpg Yes that is a little boy.
I was round a friend's house and he insisted we watch it with our alcopops. Shit evening. It's definitely the worst film I remember watching, although I was 16, so the memories are a little fuzzy, and I don't plan on rewatching it.
that shit was EPIC.
ONE FLEW OVER THE CUCKOO'S NEST
This is what we're doing, right?
Spielberg's "mature" film turns out to be a hideous po-faced mawkfest like all the rest
I really hate this film. An essay in how a middle aged conservative can turn a youth cult into a tedious diatribe about nothing.
Who ever said Apocalypse Now needs punching hard in the larynx.
Just plain bad
I also hated Serenity (shite sci-fi that was in IMDB top 250!) and Almost Famous (surely he most overrated music related movie ever)
Even more ridiculous than National Treasure 2.
but then i remembered this one already exists.
Here's a review of Double X: The Name of the Game, a 1992 crime thriller starring Norman Wisdom http://bit.ly/ntqkvJ
I mean, it really was the worst film I've ever seen. I've said it's a film you should definitely never see, but on reflection it's so weird that it might actually just about qualify as a must-see.
this is supposed to be a comedy film, apparently.
The worst film i've ever had to watch. The dialogue is stroke-inducingly bad, it's boring and everyone involved is completely up their own arse. Anyone who says they enjoyed it should be put to sleep.
amongst other things
