Your Pick for Worst Movie Ever?

    Well there's got to be over 100 threads in this forum about Favorite movie. So anyway I know Hollywood has played some pranks on us (read: threw shitty movies at us) and tried to make us watch them.

    I've seen some. You know they're really horrible when:

    >> You fall asleep multiple times trying to watch it.
    >> The acting is really bad, the story sucks and they try to distract us with their special effects.
    >> You said what he was going to say before he said it (predictable)
    >> Its a spoof of no movie in particular, just all the ones you've seen last year.
    >> Is that the end? WTF?

    Anyways here's some of the mistakes Hollywood made, that I just happened to run into.

    The Thirteenth Warrior
    The Grudge
    Queen of the Damned
    Matrix Reloaded + Matrix Revolutions
    Freddy Got Fingered
    Epic Movie
    Hulk (2003)

      Can agree with all but thirteenth warrior. That is a great movie. I find its inclusion on your list odd.
      but then i dont listen to critics and dont watch movies expecting to be let down, like most people anymore.
      Snakes on a plane would fall into just plain bad for me. So predictable I didnt watch it and still know how it went. I read a synopsis and found myself saying of course, and knew that was coming a LOT.

      I'm going to have to call BS on the two Matrix sequels - just because they weren't as good as the original everybody bashes them, but nowadays it's become more of a popular thing to do than something with any substance behind it. I've never fallen asleep watching them, and have seen each...well, maybe it's best nobody knows how many times I've seen them, lol. Even if you think they're bad, there's no way they're the worst movies ever. Here's my list to add to the fun:

      Meet the Spartans
      Epic Movie
      Date Movie
      Spice World
      Titanic (for most overrated)
      The Medallion (Jackie Chan's worst - and he's had some stinkers)
      Good Luck Chuck (Alba is bad enough without her trying to be funny by falling over and running into things - I kept on hoping she would actually get hurt)
      The Heartbreak Kid (last year's, not the original)

      I fell asleep every time I tried to watch Pirates of the Caribbean. I say three strikes and you're O-U-T. This film was a major turning point in my life, because I suddenly realized that Johnny Depp was no longer cool.

      Oooh, the 13th Warrior totally made steam come from my ears, I was so mad!

      I lasted 5 minutes into The Hulk, LOL.

      I agree with Freddy Got Fingered. That movie was just plain awful.

      Stan Helsing.
      Vampire Academy
      Cloverfield. I wanted a refund of my ticket!!
      The Village. For being boring.
      A haunted house

      I liked Epic movie. It was really stupid, but some of it was funny. Like the demonic chickmunks, and the fairy princess who thinks a taxi cab is a mythical creature, because she's on lots and lots of drugs!

    I think Chile Dogs is one of the worst movies ever. Also Match Point. And Across the Universe and Rent. Those are awful movies. I could not even finish them.

      I wouldn't deign to watch the US version of practically any movie that was fantastic in the original foreign version. I saw The Grudge in the original Japanese version (Ju-On) and LOVED it, why do I need to see the American version? Starring Sarah Michelle Gellar?!!

      The Number 23 is terrible. Jim Carey was totally out of his element, I do not know why he took the job in the first place. It was just another one of those,good guy ends up to be a crazy man, stories.

    I saw about 15 minutes of The Number 23 and decided that sleep was more important.

    It would have to be the Lord of the Rings Trilogy for me.  I had to sit through the first one with a friend, and I was just not as excited about it as everyone else around me seemed to be.  Please forgive me, but I read the first hundred pages of the Lords of the Rings and just could not finish it, which is rare for me because I usually finish every book.

    I read every word those books.  I'm such a lover of his writing that I read it again about once every other year just for the joy of it.  I made about that too.

      SweetiePieposted 8 years ago in reply to this

      Yeah there are worst movies out there.  Honestly I think I am actually just annoyed with it more than anything else and I am not a big Tolkien fan. Back when it came out my friends were forcing Lord of the Rings upon me, and I have the bad associations of being coerced to read a book and watch a movie I would not have choosen on my own. I appreciate fiction, biographies and historical fiction, so fantasy genres really do not do it for me.  For instance, right now I am reading the biography of Queen Noor and I must say this is a must read for anyone who wants to understand issues in the Middle East today, and she provides unique insights as an American who married the king of Jordan.  Of course many people love Tolkien and find his works amazing, but I am just not one of them smile.  However, I do see what you are saying smile.

    Firecracker... it had Mike Patton in it, which is why I saw it with my guy....  he was actually pretty decent, acting-wise, (he's a musician, not an actor,) it was this seriously fucked up artsy film.  (It's not about musicians or anything cool like that, but there are Carny's in the film.)

    I fell asleep during the Lord of the Rings twice, but maybe I was just tired. Huge fan of the books. First read the Hobbit when I was 14 and have read it and the trilogy many times since. I plan on giving the films another chance. I'd like to watch all three over the course of one weekend.  One friend of mine described the Lord of the Rings movie thusly:  "marching, marching, marching, BATTLE, marching, marching, marching, BATTLE..." etc. I also couldn't watch Rent and didn't like the play either. I lived that life in my 20's in N.Y....bunch of whining, feeling sorry for themselves, angst ridden wannabe's.

    Bet nobody has seen either, nor have I thank goodness, but two really terrible movies HAVE TO BE:

    Mariah Carey's "Glitter"

    As far as movies with well-known actors, I vote for Nicholas Cage's "ConAir." Beyond. Bad.

  12. DJ Funktual profile image87

      I LIKED ConAir, all those explosions!! I mean, it was mindless entertainment. But I wouldn't call it the worst movie ever.

      As a woman, I detest "Chick Flicks" and will not see one, period. So to me, they all suck and they all seem to star the same stupid actors. But I will give a "Guy Movie" a chance any day.

    Camomile Lawn is another one I will add to the worst of the worst list.  Granted it is a mini-series, but it dragged on and really became boring after the first hour.  I plan on reading the book though since I heard good things about it.

    Sorry to confuse. Meant that I bet nobody has seen either "Glitter" or "Crossroads."  And may anyone who has count himself very unfortunate!

    Oh I almost forgot, Miami Vice with Colin Farrell and Jamie Foxx was the last stinkinest movie I saw. WTF were they thinking?

  19. DJ Funktual profile image87
    DJ Funktualposted 8 years ago

    One point I would like to make is that by NOT seeing things like Miami Vice I get to keep my respect fro those two actors.  This way, if my assumption is wrong and it turns out to be stunningly good,

    (like BUG w/ Ashley Judd.  Who saw that coming?  Good director, that's what happened.)

    I can always admit I'm wrong later and get on the bandwagon and see it.

    That was my only attention w/ my hub.  I think we sometimes don't even consider missing something simply because they don't think about it and do it on autopilot, so to speak.

    I hope that my Tater wasn't too hurt by it.

    I'm not sure if it's the worst EVER (though certainly really bad), but the movie I despise above all others is Anaconda. (The one with J.Lo.) Egad, that was horrible.

    I also really, really hated the remake of Sabrina and the Lost in Space movie.

    I thought The departed was one of the worst films I have ever seen in my life.

    After hearing the hype over the movie I didn't begrudge paying money to visit the cinema and sit there for around two hours to see a decent film. But when the plot was as poor as what it was and when (nearly) the whole cast died at the end I just thought it was pointless film, waste of money.

    Funny thing is, when people talk about new releases at the cinema, i normally say "oh it's good that film, but you just don't expect him to die in the end do you?" and when they actually did, it made me chuckle.

    I remember losing all interest in Die hard 4.0/live free or die hard/whatever it's still pants.

    Tried watching it twice and kept wither falling asleep or losing interest.  It's the typical case of going back to the well too many times.  Some frnachises need to know when to stop and do something else.

    But then again, if it wasn't that annoying whiney Mac advert guy and had gone down a route with Samuel L Jackson again as Zeus then maybe it'd been worth sticking out.  I mean Reginald Vel Johnson had a cameo in Die hard 2, how lame.

    I'm sure there's worse but that one comes to me as a really bad one recently.

      Saw 1 was actually pretty good, the ending was a total "what!?" moment.  It's just a shame they've turned it into a parody of itself with too many rushed sequels, it's like the scream movies all over again.

      Just thought of another awful movie: The Condemned, and alot of these wrestler vehicles like the marine was it?  They're just awful, granted they're alright actors for their show but put them in a movie and it's laughable

      That was a great film, not the strongest of endings but I got it.

      I have a new nomination on behalf of a friend: Disaster movie (and I'd argue all those scary movie/meet the spartans/epic movie/etc/etc)

      He said he walked out less than halfway through, it was so dumb that he felt more stupid walking out than when he walked in.  Probably saved money by walking out early...haha

      I agree with him, they're the film equivalent of Mark Ronson ripping off everyone's songs and making that crackhead amy winehouse sing over them.  No originality ad they use the same tired jokes just on different movies each time.

      I remember DJ Funktual having a chip on his shoulder about these films too, I agree with you DJ these films are a travesty, and what's more they keep coming! ARGH!

At least you can laugh along with TFS and M:THoF.

    That had to be the worst movie ever made!!! I can't believe the hype surrounding that movie claiming how scary it was. Not only was it not scary, it was filmed so cheaply that it was ridiculous! It was basically a couple of kids running through the woods with a digital camera turned. It was as if there was no editing and of course the camera was constantly bouncing!

    It might be considered  a movie in the horror genre, but it would more accurately be placed in the horrific genre!

    For some unknown reason people love the new james bond with Daniel "so wooden you catch splinters off him" Craig. 

    For me the James bond movies are meant to have someone like Roger Moore or Pierce Brosnan not a personality void like Daniel Craig.  I watched casino royale and thought it was just a big indulgence for poker players, so boring considering i can't stand poker but thought maybe the sequel would be better.

    Again, crap, I seriously didn't have a clue what was going on up until the very end when I sort of guessed what was going on and then it still managed to lose me.  They've tried to rewrite Bond and that sucks since he's now a moody watered down Jason Bourne (casino royale's opening basically rips this off).

    Plus if you're going to wipe out Q and his gadgets, drive a ford but keep M you're going to confuse plenty of people, apart from those who take joy in hearing Judi Dench swear like a trooper, which is all she seems to do in the new films!

    I liked transporter 3 more than this excuse!
