What's your least favorite movie?

#41

Post by brokenface » January 9th, 2012, 4:30 pm

Speed 2: Cruise Control
Jack Frost (the Michael Keaton turns into a snowman Xmas film)

Of highly rated films I found Death in Venice utterly turgid, Dancer in the Dark too ridiculous to accept and I'm with Nuclearplanet on Intolerance.

The worst I've ever seen is Your Highness. I had to a break like every 10 minutes watching it just to keep my sanity. These are close to being #1 too:

The 41 Year Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It
The Fast and the Furious: Tokyo Drift
Harold and Kumar 2
My father didn’t have the skill of a professional cameraman. The result? Avant-garde cinema.

Salo of critically acclaimed films, Look Who's Talking of all films..but I have not seen Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2 (2004) which is meant to be the worst film according to IMDB when I last checked.

American History X

This was more of a pro-racist movie to me than Birth of a Nation

Heard a Q&A with the editor of that film. Apparently the director wanted to replace Ed Norton after the film, even though he's in the majority of it. :blink:

Excluding poorly made films, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy is at the top of the list for me. It was such a chore to sit through the first two, i can't face the 3+ hours needed to watch the 3rd and be rid of these movies for ever.

I can't be lieve I read yesterday that Perter Jackson is going to make a Trilogy of the Hobbit as well. Does that director have no restraint?

Oh but those two just sound so promising!

It always saddens me to read these threads about what movies people really dislike. There's a lot of gold on here, and I tend to find something wonderful and redeeming about each one in some way. I know it's all about different backgrounds and particular tastes, but even still...

Charlie's Angels was really important to me when I was 9, so I could never have an inch of hate for it :P I love Last House on the Left (although I just thought it was ok the first time I watched it), and I like Cannibal Holocaust a lot as well. Transformers 2 was so fecking awful I almost killed myself.

My bottom 10 is something like this:

1. Juno
2. Süt Kardesler
3. Demon Island
4. Beverly Hills Ninja
5. The Night of the Hunter
6. The Maltese Falcon
7. Dzhentlmeny udachi
8. Aguirre, der Zorn Gottes
9. Envy
10. Balkanski spijun

I watched it while I was pulling an all-nighter and thought things blowing up would keep me awake. I watched it with Riffrax as well and it still almost killed me.

Last year I said it was Zaat with Love Story as a close runner-up, but not long afterward, I decided that Love Story was far more evil than Zaat on many counts. Eat Pray Love would probably come ahead of Zaat, as well. (No, I'm not kidding.)

I don't hate women, I hate society's view of women and how women are happy to go along with that view because of the benefits they get. And as as a result, those of us who refuse to go along with it have to suffer for it (making me hate the whole thing even more).

But anywho, Juno is a horrible attempt at being cool and quirky and funny. The acting is terrible from everyone involved, despite my excitement at Michael Cera and Jason Bateman being in a film together. Generally the most painful of films will be comedies, because a bad comedy is the worst possible torture in the world. And I could feel my body trying to kill itself so it didn't have to put up with the film any longer.

I really liked Ellen Page. I act like Juno sometimes, which is makes it easy to relate to the character. I found it very well written aswell with some very good direction.

Too bad you didn't like it :( , It's 9/10 for me.

All films I wish didn't exist - all from the same sort of bullshit ballpark:

Independence Day
Armageddon
Transformers 3 (watched it by mistake on a long haul flight... worst ever two and half hours spent at 30'000 feet)

After a quick look at my IMDB ratings I'd include want to include these for sheer utter unbelievable shitness:

Jaws 3
Jaws: The Revenge
Primeval
Diary of the Dead
Alone in the Dark
Very Bad Things
Exorcist II
Dreamcatcher... (oh, how I hated this film)
Miracle Mile
The Keep
The Hills Have Eyes 2 (remake)
Dungeons and Dragon
300
The Cave
Creep
Legion
The Punisher (89 and 04)
The Happening
Alien vs Predator
Spawn
Sanctum
Wild Wild West
U-571

That's a lot of bad films, sorry for the smell.

I'm talking about films for the most part there, so I'm still talking about how the portrayal 'disgusts' me. The 'women are disgusting' comment was mostly about the physical appearance as it was a follow up to 'if I were a guy, I'd be gay'. The 'despise women' comment was aimed at the women masses in general (eg, hating women as a gender, but not hating individual females).

And I do find them physically repulsive (that's what the 'straight woman being picky' comment was about. There, 'hate' meant 'doesn't find them attractive'); the complaint about nudity was because I don't find them attractive at all and if a woman gets naked, films always feel the need to highlight what beautiful goddesses they are and blah blah and I'm like 'wut, they're gross'. I hate it when the do the same thing with men in films but it's not as often and it's usually done in a comedic way for some reason.

The rom-com thing is again, about the portrayal of women in films. They never have any personality + they're unattractive to me, so it leaves me with little reason to understand why such a big deal is being made. But it's especially obvious in rom-coms where it does the stereotype thing of 'the woman is interested in the man because he's sweet and sensitive and the man is attracted to the woman because he thinks she's attractive'; so it plays up the woman's 'attractiveness' and the man's personality. And personality is always more important than physical attractiveness in terms of a person's overall attractiveness (to me anyway, I get bored of looking at a pretty face if the person is boring as hell. If you're kinda odd looking, but have an awesome personality then you're going to interest me much more).

The 'since I hate women' was meant as 'hating feminism' since I don't believe in segregation in genders and yay equality. And again, was based on a film I'd watched that people on IMDb were saying only women liked it because it was pro-feminism (and I loved it, but didn't see it that way at all).

Well looking through the IMDB I've stumbled upon a plot by people who'll try to achieve the impossible and make the worst movie of the year three times in a row.

2012: Baby Geniuses: Baby Squad Investigators
2013: Baby Geniuses 4
2014: Baby Geniuses 5

Holy shit!

Oh dear, at first a sane person would think of this being a joke or hope that someone pulls the plug before they actually spend money on this sort of camelpuke but now they even have a trailer, when will someone do the righteous thing and destroy any film that may already be in existence.

Yeah, but maybe the 4th & 5th ones will and they'll break even.
