Mediterraneo and all those shitty italian movies from the late 80's and 90's that had Oscar success.
Yup Mediterraneo was terrible. Not exactly 1/10 terrible to me, but I felt very misled when I watched it recently.

I too thought I'd posted a long time ago - must of been a different thread.

for me the Offal Standard remains: My science project (1985), in which some high school students find a way to get back to the past and, instead of showing any interest in interacting with the people they meet, spend the rest of the movie shooting them on sight .

Oh. My. God. This thread.

Minions.

I HATE Minions. I HATE everything about Minions. I HATE anything somewhat kinda a bit tangential to Minions. I like kids less because of Minions. I like people with kids less because of Minions. I like the color yellow less because of Minions. I can no longer use the word "minions" in conversation because of Minions. If you asked me to kill my wife and pets OR watch Minions, I'd check the runtime and inquire about sobriety requirements before providing an answer.
:lol:

My most hated trash movie is still The 41-Year-Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It. As for short movies I have to go with Electrocuting an Elephant. And among the critically acclaimed movies the one I despise most is...

I've awarded a dozen films a 1/10, a rating I give out nearly as sparingly as my 10s. These far transcend your typical terrible flick and inhabit the darkest depths of movie hell. Here they are in chronological order:

The Beast of Yucca Flats (1961)
The Incredibly Strange Creatures who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies (1964)
Manos: The Hands of Fate (1966)
Blood Shack (1971)
The Hollywood Strangler Meets the Skid Row Slasher (1979)
Zombie Lake (1981)
Howling III: The Marsupials (1987)
Zombie Nation (2004)
Wrong Turn 3: Left for Dead (2009)
Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010)
Wrong Turn 4: Bloody Beginnings (2011)
Wrong Turn 5: Bloodlines (2012)

Not sure I could pick a single one out and call it the absolute worst.

That is actually one that I own, but haven't seen. Wife and I started a marathon of the four titular films to end with this one, but we got into a fight and went to separate rooms. Now I'm even more curious to watch this one...

This is my second least favorite. It's a zombie movie even Mighty hasn't seen! :o

By the way, Maxie, it's only because of your post that I found out that Minions is actually a movie by itself. Until now I always assumed those things were part of The Incredible Despicable Monster Lego University or whatever. I usually avoid that kind of movies.

I only watched 20 minutes of it, out of a car crash "can't look away" masochistic thing, but I'm pretty sure The Hottie and the Nottie is the worst, most despicable film ever made.

Of stuff I've actually completed, I'd probably pick The Human Centipede. Not only is it disturbing that anyone can conceive of that crap, but it's a shoddily made and acted film too. Just totally irredeemable shit IMO.

They're actually part of Satan's plan to take over the world and torture us until we kill ourselves. In my case, this plan was particularly effective.

A few sort of recent dislikes:

3 Billboards (crass galore)
Fuocoammare (yes, let's all follow the banal exploits of the kid with the lazy eye and leave the migrants in the distance)
Swiss Army Man (offensively awful in so many ways)
We Need to Talk About Kevin (guns don't kill people, people do!!)

Just a guess, but, I'm going to assume that he thought they would make a turn for the better. I guess he was wrong.

Lol, went on a marathon of very very very low rated horror films. I don't have any good reason for why I ended up suffering through those in particular, but I can tell you I'm glad it's over.

A wise man on a tall mountain once said there are three types of bad movies.

The first type is the boring movie. The worst of these is Red Zone Cuba, also known as Night Train to Mundo Fine. It's billed as a sort of Red-Scare anti-Commie thriller, but presumably the editor and director were both high off their minds while working because the film is just an incoherent series of slow, horribly filmed and acted sequences which make no sense. After about 5 minutes you'll be exhausted trying to figure out what is going on, but the film goes on and on for 85 more. Save yourself the trouble and watch Andy Warhol's Empire; it's probably easier to watch.

The second type is the gag reflex movie. These movies are so morally repugnant and disgusting that they deserve their own category. I've deliberately avoided all the Kirk Cameron-type films until now, so the highest film I could place in this category so far is Wes Craven's The Last House on the Left, an incompetently made mess which is also so inappropriately lascivious that the filmmakers come off equally as rapey and misogynist as the villains.

The third type is the offensively bad "prestige" movie. Everyone involved was talented enough that they should have known better. The worst of these, objectively, by far, is James Franco's Child of God. How do you fuck up a Cormac McCarthy adaptation with the production values of a student filmmaker who is failing his first class because of his heroin addiction? (and how does it then get selected to the Venice and New York Film Festivals?)

I won't include so-bad-they're-good movies because I like them. :shrug:

Glorious isn't a word I would use to describe it. It was the most painful movie I've ever made myself finish all the way. And I only did that so that I could write a review for the website I was writing for at the time.

:banana: Shag!

Still haven't gotten around to a re-watch on that - picked up the BD used for like $3 a couple of years ago, itching to see what I think now. Have the feeling it will still be as-mixed-as-a-movie-can-be but maybe I'll come around to your way of thinking - or the opposite?

It's a lecture, not a movie and he deliberately doesn't mention key aspects of climate change (meat industry). He also flies to advertise for his movie. Greta Thunberg (the real climate activist) doesn't fly. It's overrated. It's not a real movie. It's not even a documentary. It's a lecture caught on camera. If i speak in front of a camera for 20 minutes and say my thing about the climate, i expect to win the award of best short film documentary as well.
