Every movie after 1989 has been Crap our directors and producer know nothing of how to make a good movie they think they can just put in a celeb and call it good well that is a bunch of crap I won't even go to theater anymore why spend all that money just to find out I should have stayed home I wish we could make them hear us and understand they have to make good movies if they want good biz.
Dude, I feel your pain. I realize these days there're way too many phony movies being put out. And it gets worse year by year, no kidding. But thanks to guys like Scorces, Ritchie, Tarantino, etc we can still relive the glory of the old days.
My vote goes to "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes". True nonredeemable schlock. They were trying to capitalize on the hype for the truly but unintentionally awful and awfully funny cult-classic,"Plan Nine From Outer Space", Boris Karloff's last movie. All they succeeded in doing was create a truly BAD flick.
It was supposedly a horror movie. I saw in the theater because a friend wanted to see it. The whole audience was laughing by the end. Definitely the worst movie I've ever seen in a theater (although I admit it had some interesting special effects).
And... "A River Runs Through It"? O_o Um, no. Brilliant book, definitely at least a decent movie...
That's the whole thing. Pretty boys mostly mug mug mug for the camera and can't act. Also have no charisma in the way of, oh, say Clive Owen, Hugh Jackman...even Christian Bale.
Am I the only one who never would have chosen Brad Pitt over Aidan Quinn in a River Run's Through It? I mean, ewww--even if Redford tried to portray him all wild and poetic and part of the American West in his own mold.
Nope. Never. Yuck. I may like the movies, but never the actor in question. Very, very poor box office substitute for the real thing, Robert Redford, who had talent, looks, charisma, and vision. Healthy narcissism is one thing - clinical narcissism another, .
I pretty much think an actor loses his talent when he becomes too aware of his 'prettiness' too. But I hardly consider Brad Pitt in that light. He's just fitting the role he's giving. His role in Snatch is his greatest in my opinion. Dirty, grimy and bereft of phoniness.
Is this about movies that have artistic aspirations but turned out to be the worst (think Waterworld or Demi Moore's Scarlet Letter) or movies that do not have pretenses to be Oscar-worthy and true to form are the worst out there (think spoof movies and "serial" horror movies)?
I mean it is one thing to critically bomb when everybody has high hopes and another to actually deliver a bomb that everybody expected
Yeah Cris, I agree with you. I dont think spoof movies should be placed in the Worst movie category - I mean, that's the whole point of a spoof movie - to totally suck i.e. A stupid version of the really great movies. They don't count. What I have in mind are those movies aimed to garner acclaim or even awards. Those movies you would expect better from, maybe cos of the actors starring in them or the guy directing it, etc. Something like that.
I dont agree, badcompany. I think NCFOM is one of the greatest movies ever made. There's just something about the movie that kills me. Its cold silence. The villain. The no musical score style adapted for the entire movie - never been done. I dont know, maybe its just the Director in me talking.
I felt sorry for the North Koreans in this movie. It seems that illegally entering a sovereign nation is alright if you're an American and killing nationals to save your friend while in the midst of this illegal act is courage.
I did that pretty much. I stomped on it. Picked the pieces up again. Re-molded it up again, then stomped on it again. I cried all thru the process. A heartbreaking moment in the history of sequel making!
I'm trying to remember the name - it was a fairly recent one and way over hyped in my opinion. Eternal Sunshine of something or other. Fell asleep at the cinema. Only woke up because someone was ticked off with my snoring.
My daughter was a bit cheesed off as well come to think of it.
The slightest whiff of a mysterious clue has the main character pulling theories and anecdotal evidence out of his arse. Which is what happened in the first one, but while it was mildly entertaining the sequel pushed the stupidity to new heights (or is that lows?).
They took a bunch of loved and fun characters and made them wooden caricatures of themselves. And how did the (now grown up) kid get an American accent? Between his mother and uncle and the English education he shouldn't have sounded anything like his dad at all.
Nicolas Cage has a problem. When he goes to sleep he becomes this apparition that goes out and kicks bad guy butt. He doesn't remember anything about it when he wakes up.
Is that really a problem?
I missed the last 5 or 10 minutes of this one too. After the big ride with the previous Ghost Rider, I got so bored it hurt my head. Sam Elliott's last ride was an anti-climax. It was like "What the hell? You should have stayed at home".
Who knows, his character may have played a pivotal role right at the end because he decides to turn up, but I was over caring and switched off the DVD. If it wasn't a rental I would have smashed the disc.
A billion fan girls get all excited, and over what? I took my wife to go see this movie. She hated it more than me.
I could hear the girls behind me hold their breath in parts. I'm sure I heard one of them whisper 'oh my god'. And that was for a scene which involved Edward Cullen looking at Bella.
When I mentioned to female friends who had gone ga ga over the movie what a let down it was (and they had highly recommended it) the response was "Oh, but the books are sooooo much better". Female friends in their 30s and 40 I might add.
After seeing a few choice extracts of said books I can see why Stephen King considers Stephenie Meyer to be a terrible writer.
I think I know why women of all ages love the books. Stephenie Meyer writes in a way that they all did when they were 12 and talentless.
As a writer, you see I rarely call other writers talentless cos frankly I dont think I'm that hot. But with Stephenie Meyer? Thats a different story. Plus if my man Stephen King thinks she's wack, I have to agree, too. But she gives me courage though. If a lowly skilled writer such as herself can get big movie deals like she did. Then there lies great hope for us!
I feel no emotion but annoyance. Same as many others. Sorry, as I know from that other forum, YellowWorld, or whatever, making people upset and threatening them physically is your thing.
I had to work an event for our restaurants yesterday. That's why I'm here right now. Don't you have anything else to do? Seriously? What would you do if your wife or kid knew you behaved like this on the internet?
OK, actually the worst movie I have ever seen was one I watched with one of my exes. It was a classic Georgian (former USSR) film...was it "Svani?" Can't remember. OMG is it horrible. They really take 'artsy' seriously. So that is so disjointed and clashing I couldn't even give a decent synopsis--or even impression. And I like abstract art, .
Ron, that's a whole new thread - describing bad movies to see if anyone knows what you're talking about. Bad movie - Dogville with Nicole whats her name with the real pale skin. Supposed to be arty but stinky instead.
Mastergreen posted for the best movies and it looks the same group pops up 90% of the time. How about the other way? Or are there too many to list?Worst Movies:Tied for #1 - The English Patient/The Constant Gardener
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...
My boyfriend wants me to conform to his rules and is trying to teach me structure and discipline. I don't agree with what it's doing to our relationship or how it is making me feel. It just so happens that I decided to write about it last night- < no self-promotional links> And...
