message 1: by Jammies (new)

Jammies The Wraith with Charlie Sheen for "so bad it's good to make fun of" and the Tim Burton/Johnny Depp version of Legend of Sleepy Hollow for scenery-chewing, meaningless Freudian subplot and utter disregard of, oh, I don't know, THE ENTIRE FACKING PLOT OF THE CLASSIC STORY. I will hate both Tim and Johnny forever for that one.

Oh, there are so many. Close Encounters of the Third Kind. A Walk in the Clouds, (Keanu Reeves).

Dr. Detroit | 6019 comments "Lost in Translation." Drinks usually make families more bearable, music sound better, food taste tastier, the people around you more attractive, and movies more interesting. It didn't work here. I briefly contemplated gouging my eyes out with the remote.

All the evidence you'll ever need that art, as a concept, blows.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Clark is wrong. Wrong, I tell you!

I saw one of those baby geniuses movies a couple years back. Scott Baio was in it. The filmmakers seemed depressed, like they weren't even trying.

It wouldn't be the first time.

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Cabin Boy and just about anything Quentin Tarantino or early Woody Allen

Michael There's a few but I really didn't like A History of Violence.

True!

My pick is The Gates of Hell. I like horror movies as a rule, but this one was bad, and not even funny/bad.

Rebecca White (rebecca_white) | 1028 comments Battlefield Earth was bad, but it was funny/bad. It had something going for it.

Now I'm kind of tempted to see it.

Stina (stinalee) | 750 comments The recent remake of Fame is the worst movie I have ever seen EVER.

Sarah | 13815 comments I've been meaning to watch the Twilight one. It's come highly recommended.


message 14: by Gatorman (new)

Gatorman Moulin Rouge. Watching it was like having my teeth drilled straight through to the gums without Novocaine.

Brittomart This thread reminds me of Videogum's The Hunt for the Worst Movie of All Time feature. I think Battlefield Earth was the first movie featured.

let me be the first in this thread to profess my love for moulin rouge.

Sarah | 13815 comments I think there's a difference between bad movie and movie-you-disliked. I think in the case of the latter there is some recognition that others liked the movie (Example, Moulin Rouge) whereas a true bad movie is generally acknowledged to be bad across the board. People get different degrees of enjoyment out of truly bad movies, while acknowledging that they like it because of its faults, not despite them.

Example: I got a kick out of the godawful D.E.B.S.



message 18: by Clackamas (new)

Clackamas | 17 comments The Happening is dullest end of the world movie ever, the dullest Marky Mark movie ever, and worst movie by that M. Night Shy-ama-lama-ding-dong guy. It's up there on a list of worst premise ever. On top of that, the plot is paced slowly, the characters are meaningless, and the dialogue is pointless. It's like null void of a movie. Even Marky Mark is sorry he made it.


message 19: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments Welcome, Clackamas. And from what I've heard that's a good addition to this thread.


message 20: by janine (new)

janine | 7715 comments i haven't seen them, but i'd like to add any movie paris hilton starred in. including the sex tape.


message 21: by Jim (new)

Agreed. Awful.

Lyzzibug ~Still Breathing~ (lyzzibug) | 708 comments Showing my love for Moulin Rouge also!!

Pineapple Express was a bad movie, funny, but bad.


message 27: by Brittomart (new)

Brittomart I liked Pineapple Express! James Franco made it for me. and also the line: "You assholes do exactly as I say, or I will take you outside and fuck you in the street!"


Lyzzibug ~Still Breathing~ (lyzzibug) | 708 comments Heehee! Yep it was funny


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I wasn't as fond of Pineapple Express, but I love me some James Franco.


message 30: by Scout (new)

Scout (goodreadscomscout) | 3401 comments When I'm watching at home, I'll give a movie 20 minutes, then stop if it's unbearable. But I went with a friend to the theater to see The Ugly Truth with Gerard Butler. I just can't understand why they keep letting this guy make romantic comedies. I so wanted to leave, but I was with a friend, so I stayed till the end. Just awful.
