Hope Springs with Meryl Streep and tommy Lee Jones. A boring depressing snooze festival but then again I hate chick flicks. My sons trained me to like blockbusters like Iron Man and Captain America. My all time favorite movie was Narnia. The aesthetics were breathtaking.

Travelling by ferry for an entire day can drive men towards desperate measures to fight boredom. Unfortunately, Hope Springs does little to help.

Hoping on seeing the worst film every soon.

Ugghh. I have no idea what I inhaled today but I've been sneezing for hours, my eyes are swollen, and my throat feels like it is closing up.

Allergies season was supposed to be over.

I need a bad movie to make this seem good.

I didn't have the advantage of seeing the trailer beforehand. Afterward, I read reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. They were by and large positive, which just again confirmed my dim view of humanity.

That is the purpose of bad movies, although some are so bad they would make your symptoms worse.

My favorite bad movies tend to be the ones made with immense hubris and delusion on the part of the director, combined with an incomprehensibly high budget. #1 example: Uwe Boll, director of such masterpieces as House of the Dead and Alone in the Dark. Year after year he churns out these horrendous stinkers, which are universally hated by critics as well as box office flops, yet he keeps getting funds for his films due to German tax laws which allow investors to write off failed film investments.

I like the question, but it's tough to say.

Plane, Trains, and Automobiles was a very big disappointment. So was 2001: A Space Odyessey. But I can't say either of them was extremely bad, if you leave expectations out of the equation.

Of movies I can think of at the moment, I might have to say Tuck Everlasting.

I must admit, I never found Avatar that bad. The plot was certainly predictable and overused, but it wasn't as if I hated it.

I agree. I don't know if I liked it, but I didn't hate it.

Must respectfully disagree on both Andrei Rublev and Ostrov. Both were profound, deeply layered. I've seen both more than a few times and notice new depths every time, especially in Ostrov.  BTW the Director of Rublev was the mentor of the director of Ostrov.  

Rublev was a little uneven…and a little confusing to start…but it didn't stay that way, and the scene in the captured church and the sequence about the boy bell maker…just phenomenal…to me…a masterful commentary on the soul of the russian people in the face of oppression both foreign and domestic. It was like a redemption from Dante's Inferno. The boy Peter only just barely connected to the tradition of his fathers, charged with a task far beyond his skills, only knowing about finding the right kind of clay to build the mold, clueless about the proper ratio of silver to make the bell, humiliated by his own inadequacies, in mortal fear for himself and his workmen who will be executed if they fail, who exhausts himself trying to oversee the creation of a giant of a bell (a singing icon, a blagovest/ringing gospel)…a bell born out of seeming hell fires of melted silver…refined in a furnace of affliction, poured into the earthly mire (of the right kind of clay), and the boy's sole hope and refuge…prayer to the blessed Theotokos, prayer from the depths of weary despair.  And then they haul out the bell, inch by inch from the earth….it is like the very resurrection of the russian people, an ascension and the great question hanging between the groaning hawsers is will it ring or will it crack asunder. In the silence the clapper swings closer and closer to the lips of the bell…and then….it SINGS…a great silver well of sonorous glory…and the boy collapses in relief weeping from both exhaustion and joy and release from what was but moments before a sentence of certain death….and witness to these things was the disillusioned iconographer Andre Rublev, who from that witness found his faith again, and went on to do with line and color what the boy had done with the bell. He prevailed out of kind of hell, he brought forth light out of darkness, his icons illumined and taught the russian soul in the hour of their downtroddenness.  ….so for me…not an easy movie to be sure, but for sure a great one…indeed it is ranked…or was among the top 15 greatest works of cinema of all time. And since then I would easily add to that number the magnificent Ostrov.

Ostrov is one ridiculous pedantic cliche after the next. It is LOL bad.

Goofy. Said it when I first saw it thinking it would have to be halfway decent from all the recs and then realized how somewhat sane people can be blinded by really terrible superhero stories if they have the correct metaphysical window treatment.

+1 I've watched it several times and I always find something spiritually benefiting for me. ANd I think it's good realised, the play of the actor is very convincing.



For sure I have something like "first 5", but that's what I rembember for now.

Dhaai Akshar Prem Ke - a Bollywood film I've watched a few years ago.

Almost 3 hours of stupidity, chaos, naivety and so on. All the time you don't know what's the main plot and what are the reasons of such behaviour of the protagonists. Only last 15 minutes are quite interesting and dynamic

Epic - a this year animation. It's just a collection of various motives, quatations etc. from other movies and books. Tries to be funny, but it's not at all. And too much green. Don't like the look of the characters. I have no idea why with my friend we chose this movie to watch it in cinema.

The Room by Tommy Wiseau. It was vulgar, poorly filmed, poorly thought out, badly acted in, the characters' personalities, what little there were made me want to cringe; and only thing it had going for it was how absolutely bizarre it was. It's like the Dungeons and Dragons movie of the 2000s.

Not including movies where I went in knowing how bad they would be (such as the truly awful Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band) just to see if they were as bad as the hype-

Not including non-Terminator Cameron movies (to this day I still have yet to watch Titanic and I agree completely about how bad Avatar is)-

Not including bad movies made with the intent to be bad (Troma films- though their worst films are a darn sight better than half the junk big studios pour out)-

V For Vendetta. I wanted to like this movie. It is one of my favorite comic books. Unfortunately, the people responsible for this train wreck completely missed the point of the comic book.

The Star Wars prequel trilogy. You'd think I'd have learned my lesson after Phantom Menace. Unfortunately, people whose taste I'd otherwise trust kept telling me that each new installment was "actually pretty good". Such was my hope that I saw each one. Addendum- Attack of the Clones- a bad movie, but Yoda with a saber was worth the price of admission. I just wish I'd paid my $10 and walked in during the last half hour.

Other than that, I can't really say that I've seen any movies so bad that I was tempted to walk out of the theater. I generally only go to movies that either come with a recommendation from trusted sources or where the drawing power of the source material is so great that I'm willing to put up with the flaws to see how it all plays out.

 I could probably think of more but there's a reason I've forgotten them.

I would say most recently it would be Columbiana staring Zoe Saldana. It was bad in the way that it was just about the most unrealistic movie ever. Yea, a one women army that manages to take out whole SWAT teams as well as drug kingpens and their cartels by herself... Roll Eyes
I died laughing at a few of the scenes and threw up my arms at the ridiculousness of her taking out a SWAT team. I know it's Hollywood, but come on at least try to make it somewhat believable.

I didn't care much for the movie. It was ok. Not horrible or worst ever. However, the DVD has 5 commentary tracks. I like this. When I become President of America I will sign an executive order saying that all DVDs released must have at least 4 commentary tracks.

Natural Born Killers, along with the way people tried to explain the brilliance of the juxtaposition between hypocrisy and... whatever, always struck me as being a profoundly horrid movie.  And for as controversial and "groundbreaking" as it was claimed at the time, pretty darn forgettable.

Happiness

I'm not sure if that counts, because it was just too messed up to stomach watching the end of it.

Natural Born Killers, along with the way people tried to explain the brilliance of the juxtaposition between hypocrisy and... whatever, always struck me as being a profoundly horrid movie.  And for as controversial and "groundbreaking" as it was claimed at the time, pretty darn forgettable.

Agreed.

This may not be the worst movie I've ever seen, but it's certainly up there. Talk about clichés and stereotypes. This movie was a complete joke. How it received such good ratings is beyond me.

Interesting. I never saw it (except for a small fraction of it) but I think you're the first person I've heard speak ill of it.

I'll be the second. Absolute pablum and schlock. I've seen episodes of Hanna Montana which broke more ground.

Likewise. Has Oliver Stone made anything worth watching?

I haven't watched many movies, but After Earth is the worst movie I have ever seen.

As I've said, I know it's the worst movie I haven't seen.

Godzilla 1985 was very cheesy


Higher Learning was actually offensive and stereotyped people.  I remember the part where Ice-Cube points out to his friend where the "mexicans" hang out ( mind you, they're in college) and many of them look like they're in a gang and one or two are playing a guitar ...
