Some of the folks on Facebook have some suggestions for the worst movies they’ve seen.
- TB: The Sweetest Thing. “I normally like that genre, but it was drivel. Went nowhere.”
- ML: Anything with George Clooney in it.
- CT: Lady in the Water. “Painfully strange and annoying.” Sucker Punch, a close second. “A noisy mess.”
- AW: War of the Worlds, in Swedish, with English subtitles.
- AM: Black Hawk Down “There is just only so many consecutive minutes of guys peeking around corners with an M16 that I can take.”
- JH: Apocalypse Now. “Could not watch.”
I think the only movie I’ve ever stopped watching out of self-defense is probably the first “The Fast and the Furious.” Boring, inane dialogue and some of the least sympathetic characters ever (and that’s a high bar to vault).
I even sat through the entirety of “Transformers”, hoping against hope that everyone in the movie would be killed somehow. Disappointingly, all the “stars” made it out alive.
Edit: And here’s a few more!
- BB: Silent Hill, half the Resident Evils, anything involving Steven Segal, and of course, Jean Claude Van Damme’s entire collection. Clan of the Cave Bear “where they inexplicably decided to make the dialogue of the entire movie grunts and snorts because it’s about neanderthals.”
- BR: Marked for Death and Borat. “We actually paid money to see Steven Segal in ‘Marked for Death’ in the theater… it was dreadful. Worse than dreadful. I would also count that stupid ‘Borat’ movie in my top few.”
- JE: Shazaam and any of the Twlight movies.
- JD: The latest installment of Die Hard.
- PG: Howard the Duck.
And mooooooore! Really, DEEP HURTING seems to be the theme here.
- PG: Parenthood (1989). “All the funny stuff you saw in the trailer was all the funny stuff there was. After the first 5 minutes, it descended into this hell of family life.”
- AM: Pearl Harbor. “I think maybe there should be a second canvassing for Worst Ever Mega Blockbusters. #1: Pearl Harbor.”
- RM: Plan Nine from Outer Space, Manos: The Hands of Fate, Birdemic, The Room, The Happening, Dreamscape, The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension, Overdrawn at the Memory Bank, Uwe Boll’s entire body of work.
