Slimo! Slimo! Slimo!

From time to time on here, we see topics asking "What is the worst film of all time?" Frankly, I think the question is a little too broad and subjective to have any definitive answer. Therefore, I propose a more relevant and objective question, namely the title of this topic: what movie, for whatever reason, do you hate the most of any you've seen? What movie would rate a skull with you if you were to review it here? What movie is so bad you would use it to torture your enemies, or is it so bad you wouldn't use it even for that? What terrible waste of celluloid is the worst movie you've ever seen?

For my part, I haven't really seen anything that I'd rate a skull yet, though some things might come pretty close. Red-Blooded American Girl, which I have come to realize is really just a soft-core version of a hard-core vampire-themed porno movie complete with bad writing, a worthless plot, and lots of bad acting, is probably the worst film I've ever seen, and I certainly do hate it the most. Judging by the old war stories I've heard from some people on here, though, I've gotten off pretty lightly if that's the worst movie I'll ever see.

How about the rest of you? What movie do you hate the most, and why?

I think Bullethead is the worst movie I've seen.  Boring, confusing, and with one of the stupidest endings ever.  It's one of three or four movies I would rate a 1/10.

I can think of two movies that I really hated when I saw them:

* DUNE - I saw David Lynch's long, boring, confusing version of this movie during its original theatrical run.  I remember sitting in the theater, squirming in my seat, wondering when the hell it was ever going to end.

* WIRED - This is the movie about John Belushi's life and death.  I remember it playing for about 1 week in the local theaters and then quickly disappearing.  A few months later, I rented the VHS tape.  I actually got a headache watching it.  Bad, bad, bad.

I don't know if I can narrow it down to one, but I'll ramble a few off the top of my head.


Zardoz: The mention of the words bad and painful bring up memories of this. There are some peolpe who really like this movie; there are sanitariums for such people too.

The Man Who Wasn't There in 3D: If 3D wasn't already a dying fad by the time this came out in the early 80s, then this movie alone succeeded in not only killing it, but in beating the corpse as well.

Fear No Evil: This absolute pile of *tuna fish* was a poorly conceived and executed (which should have happened to the director) waste of good film stock. Somewhere along the way, someone should have informed somebody that they were making a movie; instead, they ended up with this. This movie (I am really stretching it there) has become my litmus test for video review guides; if they give this anything other than a turkey, they are incompetent.

Stick It - the plot is completely cliched, the theme confused, and the main character excruciatingly annoying.  It's bad enough that every word out of her mouth is a smart-alleck comment, but having a 24 year old actress play a 16 year old girl really pushed it WAY over the top.  This thing grated on my nerves worse than anything else I've ever seen.  Teen movies are supposed to make people feel nostalgic for all the crazy fun they had when they were kids;  This thing just made me feel damned happy to be an adult.

Death Tunnel - I despise the MTV style fast editing that seems so popular in movies these days, and it was inevitable that somebody would eventually make an entire movie that's nothing but MTV style editing, and it's not surprising that the people who did it were completely untalented hacks who also gave us awful acting, no plot, and really no reason for the movie to exist other than to play with the editing equipment.  To think that the film makers could watch this and be pleased with their achievement is a really sad commentary on the human condition.  The director should be punching a timeclock in a factory and inserting tab A into slot B all day every day.  And he'd probably be lousy at that as well.

Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?


« Reply #5 on: December 26, 2006, 11:29:41 AM »

Let's stir up some old stuff for the newer crowd:

I don't know if "hate" is the right word, but I dislike the Terminator films because the time travel is based on a premise that doesn't work in its own fiction: nothing dead can go through the time tunnel (or whatever you want to call it), so that no weapons can be brought back. The Terminator, a robot and therefore not living, can go back. "But he's encased in living matter!" (<- one of the replies I've gotten) Then why not stick a laser up his butt and get busy wiping out humans? I enjoy the special effects in the movies, but the story line just has that one major inconsistency that makes me dislike the movies. And then they even pretty much do away with the "nothing dead can go through" idea completely in T2 when the T-1000 comes through--there's no part of him that's alive.  Question I'm not trying to be too picky, and I love escapism. I just want stories that are consistent in whatever fictional universe they portray.

Another popular movie (okay, not so much on this board, but in general) I actively dislike is Titanic. I don't mind that it's a "chick flick"; I like quite a few of those. I dislike it because, underneath all the Titanic scenery and folklore, the movie is about a one night stand. Rose has a fling with Jack, who subsequently dies. She then marries a man who encourages her free spirit and helps her develop into a strong, fully realized woman. His total screen time for this lifetime of devotion is a pan across some photos as Rose nears the site of the wreck, where she joyfully rejoins her frozen lover to dance forever aboard the ghost-Titanic. She's a pretty lousy character in my opinion, but then I probably picked up on this angle more because I am more like that stolid, encouraging husband than like the footloose Jack. Also, I dislike it because it would have been a major flop if it had been set anywhere but on the Titanic; the storyline is a sketchy cliche. This attitude also goes out to Pearl Harbor, another movie that would be nothing without an interesting setting; however, that movie depends even more on "powerful" music and camera angles than Titanic to fool the eye into believing that Ben Affleck can act.

Am I sounding bitter today or what?  TongueOut

Other movies probably annoy me more than these, but these are among those that garner popular praise they (IMO) don't deserve. There are also plenty of boring movies that have wasted my time that are far worse than the ones I mention here; these two just pop into my mind when discussions like this one come up.

Death Valley: The Revenge of Bloody Bill-I knew I was in trouble when the back of this said "The best Zombie movie in the last ten years!". I actually don't remember most of it (guess I blocked it out) but what sticks out is a couple of really stupid scenes. One is the main character is running away from what I think passes for zombies and a gunshot sound goes off and a zombie fall. The problem is she was running straight not looking behind didn't even point or aim the gun.

Vampires Vs Zombies- This one sticks out in my mind the most. Incoherent plot that seems to have two separate movies going and no zombies and the vampires that can walk in the sun and make cars vanish (don't ask).

Battle Royale 2- I went in knowing (thanks to the reviews) that it wasn't anything like the first so I went in not comparing it to the first. What I got was a heavy/ham fisted social commentary that just p**sed me off to no end and mindless violence that I just hated. I'm actually getting angry thinking about it.

Aeon flux- While Chalize Theron is nice to look at and it was pretty movie to look at I just hated it. I'm a long time Aeon Flux fan (I even love the universally hated/panned MTV show). The only thing good is that the all the cartoons came out on DVD thanks to the movie.

Read your comments about Titanic Derf and I agree.  That film is probably my most despised due to several reasons.  I think it was a slap in the face to all who died in the real Titanic.  I saw it in the theaters when it first came out thinking it would be a historical movie but ended up with a third grade love story teenagers could make out to and 40 something house wives could live vicariously through.

Dantes Peak gets a nod because it was horrid.  However, I look back with fond memories on that film because a buddy and I turned it into a MST3K episode in the theater and everyone around us joined in. 

I generally hated the Star Wars prequels.  I think Jar Jar Binks put me over that edge.

Body of Evidence A better title would've been Cliche' ,The Movie, I never really understood how Willem Defoe's character recognized any of those "invitations", and every time he accepts one, he looks like one of the victims in a teen slasher flick that the audience yells at for being so stupid. And seeing Madonna naked at this point in her career was strangely disappointing.

That stupid boxed set I fell for, from the Polonia brothers. Not just because it blasphemed the name of my favorite Roger Corman flick, and not just because it sucked, but also because... uh... Oh, crap! I forgot! Now I'll have to watch the stupid stinkorama all over again.

I am such a masochist!

The 1976 remake of KING KONG! Evenmore blasphamous then the American GODZILLA.
Menard-Is FEAR NO EVIL the one about the Antichrist teenager made back in the early 80's? I like that picture,personally! Zombies,laser fx,and the Ramones and Sex Pistols on the soundtrack! Cool!

The first film that came to mind is Pearl Harbor.

This is a movie that was so bad it made me mad. I walked out of the theater angry. It wasn't just because it was bad, but because they had the nerve to make this movie over 3 hours long. I mean how bad can a movie about Pearl Harbor be? How do you mess up a movie about Pearl Harbor? I didn't think it was possible considering how interesting the source material is, but Michael Bay found a way to do it.
