What's the worst movie you've ever seen?

#1 Post by Mahoora » 01 May 2009 13:10

I was talking about that the otherday at the university with my friends and i thought, who else are better than you to discuss this stuff :lol:
Mine is Cube (both films) it's just discusting to watch: no plot, no explenation, no ending, no conclusion, no acting, no nothing! you just waste 90 minutes of your presious time only to watch total crap :lol:
All those plans and hopes and dreams what happens to them? it's only a handfull of the lucky ones who can look back and say that they even came close.

I think it was Lady in the Water by M. Night Shyamalan. It was so bad that I didn't even finish it.

Gran Torino is the worst movie I've watched recently. Bad acting, afterschool-special plot, predictable characters... really no redeeming qualities whatsoever.

The first Cube movie was good but the second sucked hard.

The worst movie for me is Chopping Mall. Granted it is a horror film and most of those are crap by definition but one was the most boring.

I wonder if I should watch the recent remake of The Wicker Man (which was a brilliant movie in its original 1973 incarnation), just to be able to mention it here. Going by what other people have said about it, it will probably be in the list...

It's a travesty of a movie. The original was so excellent... they changed just about everything including the music. The soundtrack for the original movie is one of the best there is. I will say the Nick Cage version has ONE scene that's awesome though. Almost awesome enough to watch the whole movie for. :lol:

I think you people need medical attention. These 3 are by no means bad movies, let alone "the worst".
The worst thing about CCBB was that is was so hyped, with all the Oscar nominations and stuff. Even one of guys at the literature department praised it all over the place, said he cried at the end. So I watched it. 3 hours of doing absolutely nothing interesting with the film's premise. It was all special effects and very little plot. The only even partly sympathetic character was the horribly stereotyped black mama. And once the movie got going it was just a serious of seemingly unconnected events that didn't add up to a story. Just take the whole WW2 part, that had nothing to do with anything else happening in the movie. And then, all of the sudden there's this overly long line of contrafactuals telling you tediously about an accident, that you have realized was going to happen the moment the voice-over starts. It's a drag, like all the rest.
And maybe the biggest disappointment: when they actually start to put some plot around the backwards aging thing, it's completely irrational and superficial. He leaves wife and daughter because the wife "can't raise them both" when it was clear at that point, and made clear by the rest of the movie that followed, that the daughter would be grown up before he would get into any danger of acne and awkwardness towards girls.

Why is CCBB the worst? Not only because it was incoherent, inconsistent, badly written and stylistically all over the place - that would have just made it bad and I might have voted for Independence Day or Armageddon - but it was also dressed up as a serious, thoughtful movie. It was, in short, an incredible disappointment. Imagine if they had left the light sabers out of The Phantom Menace, that's what Benjamin Button is like.

And yes, I exclude most B and C movies here, most of which are decidedly better than The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button anyhow.

What a load of nothing.

2001: A Space Odyssey. I saw it a couple of years ago, and it was the most boring thing I ever saw, by far. Probably one of the few movies I never finished watching, if not the only one. Although I think that if I'll watch it again now, I'll have a different opinnion.

Come on people. Most of the movies you've mentioned should not be in this topic. :P

Charlie's Angels however, should be in this topic. The biggest load of crap ever conceived, pure utter horror and wasted time.

That's perhaps the thing that scares me the most. The soundtrack was one of the main things that made the movie so great, and was really integral to the movie somehow. (And really, I can't think of any other movie with a soundtrack that's comparable to it...)

Oooooh Max Payne was extremely mediocre too !

Edit : I also remember "Any Given Sunday" as being memorably bad despite a really good cast.

And that movie with Mel Gibson, "Payback". Reaaaally badbadbad too

How was it all about special effects? The only special effects you could notice were on Benjamin Button himself and that was necessary because the movie's about him aging backwards.
The only even partly sympathetic character was the horribly stereotyped black mama.
Again, how was she stereotyped? She was a pretty normal, respected, beloved black female, especially unstereotypical for 1920's America.
Just take the whole WW2 part, that had nothing to do with anything else happening in the movie.


That part was in the movie only because BB had to leave the tugboat and return home. They had to get him out of circle of Captain Mike and to do that, they could do thousands of boring things, but they threw a cool war scene and got rid of the captain (who was a very cool character in my opinion)and his crew in a fun-to watch way.
when they actually start to put some plot around the backwards aging thing, it's completely irrational and superficial. He leaves wife and daughter because the wife "can't raise them both" when it was clear at that point, and made clear by the rest of the movie that followed, that the daughter would be grown up before he would get into any danger of acne and awkwardness towards girls.
That's true. He left his wife a bit early. But this didn't bother me at all.

Ah damn, 2001 is actually a great movie. Slowly paced, sure, but definitely a great movie.

As for bad movies, I guess they come in two categories. Movies that are bad and just don't have any click at all (I guess the last movie I saw that fitted in that category, was Happiness), and, well, movies that are bad in a hilarious and campy kind of way (some examples of that that I can think of now: Mysterious Island, Flash Gordon, Humanoids from the Deep).

Big lols @ some of the nominations here.

Matrix 2 and 3 were disgustingly awful. But the Lady in the Water beats even those. I havent seen any of the Fast and the Furious movies, but they're probably there as well.

The first Fast and Furious was good and deserved praise since it was the first movie in the underground racing genre, but the sequels were mediocre.

Ever saw braindead? =)

For me, I usually forget the bad movies... for the worst movies, those are usually so terrible that it makes them funny (braindead is an example)

Though the worst movie that does pop into my mind would be the 8th movie of hellraiser
it sucks and it's not funny either :?

I really liked The Crow. Very dark and doomy. It kind of reminds me of The Dark Knight.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen was Batman & Robin. It's just unwatchable. So much that I just couldn't finish it. Not even Arnold was able do save it :)

Leaving all the B and C movies aside, I´d say either Postal or Starship Troopers 2. Though there were some funny scenes in Postal, the overall "story", if there was any, was pretty lame and soon the kind of humour got annoying.

Still I´with Medea, there are lots and lots of films that are just so bad that they are already genious. Braindead, Bad Taste, Monster Man, El Dia del la Bestia... the list goes on and on.

Happiness by Todd Solondz? :shock: That's one of the best comedy since god knows when! Ok, not hilarious, but I spent the whole movie with a big smile on my face. Hoffman is was simply awesome in the fat sweaty pervert role and that guy who played the pedo was hilarious. But then, maybe I just have a sick sense of humour...

As for Worst film ever i'd say any of the "Scary/Date/Epic Movie, Meet the Spartan, American Pie type of "comedy" Idiotic crap aimed at braindead morons. Both the maker and the people who enjoy such feces should be shot twice in the face with a lupara.*

Same thing for all the movie in The Fag and the Furious serie. Shoot them dead and repeat.*

Any type of Sex and the City, The Devil Wears Prada, Confession of a Shopaholic type of boring left-wing bourgeoisie brainless woman flick. Again, shoot them dead and repeat.*

* Haven't seen any of these movies, just the seeing the trailers on tv was enough to disgust me and urge me to mow down people with a machine gun.

Most of the Hellraiser movies were awful in my mind. The only one I really liked was the second one. Though the one is space is the worst of the bunch for me. I think that's movie #4 or 5, I can't remember.

I would have understood such comments if this topic was asking for "most overrated" or "most disappointing" movies ever seen, not for the worst.
I guess they have not the slightest idea about what a bad movie really is.
Maybe they should check for the bottom #100 list on the IMDB to see what bad movies really are.

Spy Kids 2. My little brother had a paper route and as some sort of 'reward' the paper had a free movie showing for all the paperboys and girls. I had to take him, and that was the movie. Bloody awful.

The only decent actor in that movie was Eastwood, and even then he plays the same rehashed role of a grumpy old guy with a chip on his shoulder. The plot was ridiculously trite, the other "actors" were absolutely awful and I honestly can't see how anyone could find any merit in that movie aside from being a study in how many different slang words one can use for an Asian.

Please keep on with dealing with music only and leave cinema alone, maybe it's not your best subject... :P
The only decent actor in that movie was Eastwood, and even then he plays the same rehashed role of a grumpy old guy with a chip on his shoulder. The plot was ridiculously trite, the other "actors" were absolutely awful and I honestly can't see how anyone could find any merit in that movie aside from being a study in how many different slang words one can use for an Asian.
And I thought it was an amazing, small movie with a superb feel to it, a solid story (nothing innovative, but you can't really put people into a cliche category either. Eastwood is grumpy, but he is also a ladies' man. His "sidekick" is not the typical shy guy made into a man-cliche either. Nor the self-assured cheeky girl, who is later raped and beaten up horribly.) Apart from that, the movie was incredibly funny, and the ending scene truly beautiful, what with the lake vista and the song.

The movie was about overcoming prejudices and it accomplished it in a funny and touching way. And the characters were definitely not 2-D in my opinion.

I'm convinced you guys have seen a different Gran Torino than I, because there wasn't anything I found funny in that movie, and the "touching" parts were so cheesy and predictable it made me sick.

imo you're a cynic, bitter man untouchable by mere emotions .p

maybe the dubbing helped for once, i dunno. besides, the "tough talk" was pretty funny for me.

what kind of worst do you need?
as said before there are movies that just don't click with me, like titanic.. but there are also those movies that are simply bad by overhyping and terrible acting/plots and such. scream series and their scary movie ripoffs..

guess for me the mad max series is somewhere in between them, donno what it was but i was bored to death.

Totally agree with that.

I'm sure that I have seen worse movies though, but can't remember any right now.

On HBO Asia, i watched the stupidest movie this morning, about girls playing volleyball and having all these catfights about stealing each other's boyfriend and/or thunder but still managing to win when they realize they're only good if they are a team.

Not as bad as Spiderman 3 but almost there...
Dreamland turned to realland and we faced a new frontier
We lost the world
Sometimes we hold it but it's slipping away
When we add reality it doesn't taste like our dream
