What's the biggest film flop you've had the displeasure of watching?
sort by best latest
Interesting, this is the second time Transformers were mentioned. I don't really consider it that bad, but there's clearly something to it. Can't argue with Blair Witch Project though, definitely one of the worst.
I never finished that one, so I don't know what that says about it.
It was a bit of a flop I have to say. Not exactly the worst thing out there, but a flop for sure
I don't know if it is still true but it was the biggest money loser for a long time.
The biggest money loser before WW was Little Shop of Horrors which I thought was a great movie (I'm talking the big budget version of course)
If by "horrific" you mean "awesome," then you're correct.
I wouldn't even consider the likes of SyFy films for this question, because they're not aiming for any quality at all. It's low-hanging fruit.
Haven't seen it to be honest. I might check it out now :)
I have seen the whole thing and it is terrible! Awesome,,, not just plain dumb. Awesome as in Awe there are Some minutes that I will never have again. Worse than Octoshark,
"Low hanging fruit..." I love that phrase - very descriptive!
I loved that game as a kid, so I can't really bash the movie. Can't even dislike it lol
I love horror flicks but I've avoided the "Centipede" films... the whole concept is just a little too, shall we say, "out there" for me.
Apparently a third "Centipede" is in the works... you've been warned.
The first one wasn't a bad film. For all the bad rap that the premise gets, I found it surprisingly tame. Plus, the dude that played the doctor did a great job. I haven't seen the last one, but I've read it takes a meta approach to the first one.
Yes, the second one is about a guy who becomes obsessed with the first movie. On it's own, I don't hate the meta concept, but the execution just went too far for me.
Not really much of a fan either; liked the South Park spoof episode though, made me lol
What's wrong with Transformers lol?
It's awful, that's what's wrong with it :D
Haha, well it's not exactly a classic, I'll give you that, but not quite the worst either, at least in my book :)
Yeah, I know a lot of people liked the action and whatnot... but I just couldn't get into it. Hated it all the way. And I was a fan of the 80's cartoon. But yeah, I usually find myself alone in that one.
You're not that alone actually, just saw another comment here bashing the Transformers lol
Well it's an Adam Sandler movie, what did you expect? :P But seriously, his films are a bit of a hit and miss.
Saw it (Marina Monster), couldn't agree more :)
Oh yeah, that one is hellishly bad. Even so, it's still a holiday staple at my house. Haha. I bought it on DVD at a dollar store a couple of years ago.
Lol! Last Christmas we couldn't find any good Christmas Shows on tv so we ended up watching Psycho
When I bought the DVD I thought my kids might get a kick out of it. After watching the movie by myself I decided not to show it to them, because the movie is so bad that making them watch it might be considered child abuse!!!
Never heard of that one, but just the title speaks for itself really :D
It's from the 1960s and made in a south American or Central country. I had a book called The Book of Lists and this movie made the top ten worst movies.
The second and third one I saw, but the first one I'll have to check out lol
Sounds like quite an experience there :D
You got the point right Brett, it's about personal preferences and what everyone individually considers as the worst movie, not the mass. I have to say I never saw "The Evening Star," and with the way you described it, I might never will now. :)
Wow, that's a lot of hate :)
Sounds like quite an experience. Personally, I don't see modern jazz as that bland; granted, it's definitely not on par with the classic stuff, but it has its moment in my opinion.
Like any art, film is so subjective that I wouldn't dare throw such a broad generalization. I, for one, loved No Country for Old Men and thought it was deserving of all praises. And so did There Will Be Blood, which was up against NCFOM that year.
TWBB was a decent effort but NCFOM I threw the disc away after watching maybe 25 minutes.
But we al have different tastes in films, there is no good or bad only god or bad for us.
Hehe, that's weird! I thought you would've thrown the disc during the last 20 minutes or so :-D
I didn't care much either for the Deer Hunter and Gandhi and Chariots of Fire didn't these all win Best Picture? I hear Blair Witch 2 was better but didn't care for BW1
Haha, you're all giving me a heart attack. I thought Blair Witch 2 was horrible. One of the worst P.O.S I've seen ever.
Hard to believe that anything could be worse than BWP 1 but sequels of any movie tend to be worse.
Well agree but all the Harry Potter movies were great
As I already said here, I agree about the Blair Witch Project, but The Deer Hunter? I really liked that one, to be honest. :)
I just LOVE Mrs. Doubtfire and Flashdance!
Oh, and Murphy's Romance
Look for "Second Hand Lion" one of the best movies ever
Officer and a Gentleman? Flashdance? Really? :)
No offense, but you need to get out of the house more often. :)
Had to read you comment twice. Listing your favs with Mrs. Doubtfire makes sense and I did like Billy Jack I don't go to movies much because of the cost but try to catch a good one of tv once in a while
Didn't like "Avatar" too much, but it's hardly the worst one out there. You probably watch really good movies if "Avatar" is the worst you saw. :)
I wanted to see it at the megaplex in 3D but I was living in Colombia and recovering from a broken ankle ligament so housebound for 3 months. I never saw it replayed in 3d so I've never seen it.
Yeah, jeez, I mean, I thought 'Avatar' was the worst movie James Cameron ever made (I'm a big fan of his work, but this is one I only need to see once), but it's hardly the worst movie ever.
Oh c'mon, it's can't be that bad, a bit of pumped up action movies never hurt anyone :)
Wow, I thought it was one of the best of that year. I don't mind a sad or unhappy ending, as long as it's engaging and well told.
I thought "District 9" was actually a pretty clever flick. A very "Twilight Zone"-ish apartheid fable told through a science fiction filter.
I totally agree with Thief & FatFreddy. District 9 was an innovative and extremely well produced movie. As well as its obvious satirical/social commentary undertones it was a most novel spin on the well worn 'alien invasion' themed movie.
Have to go with the rest of the crowd, the film's not so bad :)
It was a disturbing movie but it was also really interesting besides all the F- bombs
I liked it too. A pretty clever take on how alien immigration could go very wrong.
