I second Wild Hogs!
and Ghost Rider was terrible
Blast of Silence
Ghost Rider is a masterpiece compared to…. WHITE CHICKS – I made the worst trade-off of my life with my brother’s then girlfriend (now wife) – I would watch that “film” if she would watch Matchstick Men, she fell asleep on Matchstick Men, but sadly, I keep my promise and watched the ENTIRE, UNRATED, LONGER version of the film (but enough about that). The most disappointed that I’ve ever been with a film was Van Sant’s Elephant; my roommate and I skipped class one day to watch this – when it was over we said, “that was 81 minutes of our lives that we will never get back.”
glad that I have never subjected myself to any of the films with the title “______ Movie”
I thought he was already gonna burn for being a cocaine dealer.
Timesweep (Dan Diefenderfer 1987) (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0383012/)
Someone said that Battle Royale is a boad movie. And I say this is a bad choice. It’s AWESOME! The worst? All movies made by David Zucker or Uwe Boll are atrocious
The entire evolution of movies derived from the development of the language of editing. This movie pushed it back to the level of the Lumiere Brothers, but with no truth, just hoity-toity nonsense.
Any films I would consider bad or horrible I weren’t my choices so I don’t count them. At the moment I’d say, Burn After Reading. I know there are people who did love the film, but it just tried too hard though it did have some good points.
Oh and another would have to be Hitchcock’s Stage Fright, it was just too dull.
The Da Vinci Code
Halloween (Rob Zombie remake)
House of Games- This film made me physically ill.
Transformers 5- You know their going to make it, and when they do…
Michael Bay- One day, I will make a Biopic of this man, and it will star Bruce Willis (98), Brad Pitt (108), and Angelina Jolie (234).
An American HauntingThe Horsemen (god-awful Se7en rip-off, even recycled some of the same lines)KnowingCarsHome on the Range
“The Wicker Man” remake with Nicholas Cage I never laughed so hard in my life. It was absurd. Favorite scene is where he is riding a bicycle in a three piece suit and stops to help some of the local mentally castrated men. He hops off the bike goes to an old man to help him lift a log and instead knocks all the logs down. Why is this great? Cage doesn’t help pick up the logs he backs away from the situation gets on his bike and pedals away.
Zabriskie: When I first saw Pearl Harbor, I thought it was an alright film [forgive me, I was young]. I once caught a little bit on TV and I literally cringed at every dumb line that was spoken.
Josh S: ha ha, you’re forgiven.
“As the Germans bombed downtown London…”
re Pearl Harbor’
“I think World War II just started!”
Anyone else wanna punch that guy when he said it?
Master Of Disguise
I’ll throw a couple out there: McBain (good luck finding this one, I watched it off a bootleg copy, worth it though if you can), Showgirls (watch the special edition with the commentary) Postal (Boll, need I say more), The Room (so bad, tell me somebody on here has seen this), and Shyamalan’s Lady in the Water (still the worst movie I’ve ever seen in theatres, all the others on here were bad movies I watched for fun).
Rohmer’s Claire’s Knee. Abolute tosh. These French film makers certainly knew how to bore you to death in the 70s.
The Libertine with Johnny Depp. I mean what was that all about, and how did Johnny Vegas get in there?
But the film that made me want to ask for two hours of my life back was Igby Goes Down. Whatever happened to Burr Steers, and do we really care? No.
That statement about Russian Ark was so ass backwards
Russian Ark made a huge statement about editing
“Rohmer’s Claire’s Knee. Abolute tosh. These French film makers certainly knew how to bore you to death in the 70s”
wow,that’s serious film criticism here,bigotry and tackiness in one sentence,i salute the author,very thorough argument about a masterpiece…
Snakes on a Plane and any variation of the Cooning “Beauty Shop” movies starring Vivica Fox or Queen Latifah.
there will be blood
last three star wars films
Oh, Dimitris, where is your sense of humour.
Quite obviously not all French film makers made boring films during the 1970s. However, the image of dull 1970s French movies, where nothing really happens, and everything that is said has some deep meaning can be occasionally be found in both British and American comedy, here in Blighty most recently French and Saunders have used the idea in their most recent series.
I absolutely did not mean to offend. Irony does not always work in postings.
Rohmer will stay,like it or not…
obviously,a lot of people around here don’t quite know the meaning of stupid movies,unless we’re dividing it into artistic shit and blockbuster shit…
which critically speaking,it’s always the mainstream and blockbuster shit that’s the worst shit…
There does seem to be some confusion on this forum between a terrible film and one that you don’t enjoy. I’m not a huge fan of Breathless (sacrilege I know, heh), but I would never say it was a terrible film, just one that doesn’t meet my preferences.
“which critically speaking,it’s always the mainstream and blockbuster shit that’s the worst shit…”
And Dimitris, I’ve had people argue to the contrary with me on that on here, but I agree with you.
I don’t know, Deckard, you could argue that Breathless was a terrible film, freedom of expression allows that, and many may agree with you.
Demitris, I thought this thread was asking what you thought was the worst movie ever made, and not the most stupid (hence, although not very well argued, my choice of Claire’s Knee) . And surely there is not a definitive line between artistic and blockbuster movies. Surely you can have an artistic Blockbuster movie? or even a blockbuster Artistic movie?
Have you never watched Nollywood or AIT Moviestar or Zone Horror late at night? Some of the garbage on their is so laughable that it’s difficult to pull yourself away from it. I caught “Zombie Town” the other day, simply through boredom, and every element of it was just appalling.
I once had a DVD bought for me, just because it was in a bargain bucket, called “The Three Muscatels”. Perhaps the worst movie of all time.
And I can’t help but agree with Deckard, there needs to be some differentiation. But at the same time, what makes a film terrible, other than one’s own opinion?
What about Manos: Hands of Fate (an easy one, I know)? Isn’t that a terrible film no matter where you’re coming from? I don’t see how anyone can find any value in it, though the MST3K version is certainly entertaining. I think a terrible film would be one that fails in what it sets out to do, but perhaps you’re right I suppose anyone can find worth in almost anything.
