Again not the worst, but I'll throw Tromeo and Juliet in here. It's a Troma take on Shakespeare, what could possibly go wrong?  Grin

What's more surprising is you going to a movie theater! LOL.

I'm pretty sure that's the only movie he's ever seen, in the theater or at home. Seriously. He's mentioned that anecdote like 3 times that I can remember, and never mentioned another movie.

Though you are definitely providing the lulz in this thread ackronos. Smiley
Just came across this.  No, although I'm not a big movie goer, I've been there more than once.  Thought the last time was less than pleasant-I took my nephew to see the new smurf movie.  And I hate smurfs.

I went several times, btw, to the Passion of the Christ, and was a regular goer to Rocky Horror Picture Show in its hey day.

I see a lot on DVD and VCR even (I can't count how many times I've seen the Ten Commandments).  I watch the old international classics on cable: the last I saw was Kwaidan (though it was late and I feel asleep in the middle).
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kwaidan_(film)

I've also watched (or often rewatched, like Nosferatu or Häxan) on Youtube etc.

The last movie I saw was cable last week, the original "X-Men," having watched the sequel a week or so ago.

I will add Avatar into the mix. The movie was just awful.
We need to talk about Avatar.

Besides the Dances With Wolves/Pochantas story knock-off (and you are kidding yourself if you think Cameron is a good writer), there is a lot of problems at the heart of the story. Much of it is actually racist to some degree.

But you know, much like Titanic, I was caught up in the sweeping grandeur of it all and it was one of the few movies that truly transported me to a world where I could almost touch it.
I touched the actual Titanic (a piece of it, at least), and an ice chunk at the temperature that night.  Not sure you'd want to go there.

I loved the buffalo scene of Dances with Wolves in the theater.  Not sure about the accusations of racism.

Cameron wrote Avatar, didn't he?  Yeah, that was preachy.  Sort of like a porn flick with substituting tree hugging for lust.

Prometheus
Honestly the retread of Alien throughout the film made me question if Rid has nothing left in the creative tank. I thought the movie was photographically gorgeous, but that abortion scene was very jarring.

Movies are getting more exploitative and repulsive just for the sake of it rather than adding any value.

Maybe I'm a closet conservative.
I had missed that movie.  Loved Alien and Aliens, and didn't like what the third did, bumping off the kid and the captain and going on foREVER.

Not a great film fan. Have a pile of unwatched DVDs here.

My nomination: District 9, followed by the equally ridiculous Independence Day and the whole Alien series.

( Embarrassed I blush to admit that I enjoyed Independence Day, though I hated myself for it afterwards!
why?  I know it is American absorbed, but so?  Isn't that balanced by "Mars Attacks!" (I love the death ray in that film-or is more accurately a death sound wave?)?

Right now I'm watching "Land of the Pharoahs."  Not the worst, but close.  But then, perhaps it is because of the (to me) glaring anachronisms and other inaccuracies.

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.

I just listened to an NPR story about The Room. It's like Rocky Horror. People watch it 50 times. They throw spoons at the screen. It's a party.

Yes, it is supposed to be the worst movie of all time, especially since the director intended to make something deep.

It's called a stillbirth from someone who never should have been a mother............and other things

I'm definitely a film-nazi. I couldn't point to one singular film that I would call "the worst" but I can come up with about 1 a day that has evoked my hatred. A semi-recent one that comes to mind was Melancholia. This was obnoxiously pretentious piece of junk. I normally like 'artsy' independent films, but this just pissed me off to no end.

I tried watching this with my friends last Christmas. We were hoping it would be one of those so-bad-it's-good type of movies. I mean, how can you go wrong with Garbage Pail Kids? The movie was surprisingly tedious and unwatchable. We gave up after about a half hour, and switched to a definite classic: The Stuff.

Definitely top of my list: Movie 43.  Literally feel like St Peter is going to spend about 70% of his time asking me about that one when I get to the pearly gates.

Yeah, that movie was horrible.  I can't believe I watched the whole thing really.
