4. Space Jam (1996)
3. Drive (2011)
2. The Dark Knight (2008)

Are you .. are you okay? Do you need anything?

We're all worried.

Oh that just Kasey being Kasey.  Don't mind him.

Thinking about movies that are unwatchable: The Wild World of Batwoman and Zaat spring to mind.  Thank God I watched that with the Mystery Science Theater guys.  I could never make it through otherwise.

For an interesting example not from me, my dad tried sitting through Manos: The Hands of Fate with the MST3K guys, but said to turn off after a while because he couldn't make through even with the commentary.

I will discount things that don't really qualify as movies (like The Jar), or movies that I actually couldn't get through (like Exterminator 2).  I am only counting movies that I finished.

Suspiria.  The hardest slog through a movie I've ever had.  It was harder to get to the end of than even Tank Girl, Popeye, or the 2003 Hulk.  (Although I consider Suspiria a better movie than those three.  It only hurt while it was on, those others inflicted far more lasting wounds.)

Anyone who likes Space Jam isn't a Looney Tunes fan. :P
As for the other two, meh. And the only MST movie I've never been able to get through, with or without commentary, is Red Zone Cuba.

Definitely Bucky Larson and Envy (2004) and  Transformers II: Revenge of the Fallen.
 
To me, worst of all is Envy because I expected better from those involved.

Pretty much anything released after 1989 sucks if you ask me. I can watch Maniac (1980) a million times, but it's the big budget newer movies that I find truly offensive in their mediocrity.

I agree wholeheartedly.  If you want to find unwatchable movies, the theaters are full of them. Cheers

I can think of a few wonderful 90's movies, and maybe two or three 2000's goodies.
Other than that, I'm with Voltron.

Having seen some real stinkers, I've got a high tolerance for the kind of pain that comes from suckiness. Some of the movies that have a skull rating on their reviews here, I've seen, and I could even stand to view some of them again.

That said, I'm waiting for the day someone challenges me to pick out a movie for them that really will be so painful as to be altogether unwatchable in return for their picking one out for me, because I can name the absolute worst feature-length film ever made that not even Rifftrax could ever hope to redeem. Compared to this, nothing anyone could recommend would faze me.

It's called Spielen wir Liebe, and it's so bad that it's illegal in pretty much every country in Europe. People are also banned from selling it on eBay, and in many countries you can go to jail for owning one of the DVDs, which judges in every country ordered recalled and destroyed. Naturally, this hasn't stopped rips of it from circulating over file-sharing sites on the internet for everyone who just couldn't resist the temptation to see for themselves what a torture instrument this movie is.

I've seen it once, and have determined never to see it again; not on a dare, and not on a bet no matter how high the stakes. If civilization should collapse, entropy will render all our computers inoperable and all our discs and tapes and other storage devices unreadable within thirty years; a lot of our best stories from TV and the cinema will be irretrievably lost. We can be consoled, however, that at least Spielen wir Liebe will likewise perish from the face of the earth. That's how bad it is.

I love Suspiria. Not for the story, because in that sense it's pretty terrible, but the sound mix of that film is something I absolutely adore. I love Suspiria.

The least watchable movie I have ever seen is Slapstick (Of Another Kind). That is the worst movie I have ever seen by a substantially large margin. I've watched a lot of terrible movies, more than any one person would expect to see in their lifetime, and I have yet to see a movie that has equaled Slapstick in terribleness. I would go as far to say that my eternal soul has been compromised because I have seen that movie.

It is the worst. The literal worst. And I've seen it multiple times.

.The ROCKY HORROR PICTURE SHOW-I've sed my piece about this stupid movie in the past.
.The DORM THAT DRIPPED BLOOD-Boring,too dark (you can't make out what's going on)-a real snoozefest.
.SAW-The first one. I never bothered to see any of the sequels. It just irratated me to no end. The fast forward camera stuff was grating.
.I SPIT ON YOUR GRAVE-Unbearable. The rape scene goes on waaaay to long. They actually remade this! WHY??? Oh yeah-because kids nowadays think extreme torture (think HOSTEL,SAW) is what makes a horror film. Lookingup   
Try suspense and good acting.
.Oh lest I forget-SINGLE ROOM FURNISHED-Jayne Mansfield's last film. And an unwatchable piece of s**t it is.
My review of this black hole of a movie is here-

I never saw (or was even remotely interested in seeing Hulk, but I own copies of and thoroughly enjoy Suspiria, Tank Girl and Popeye. But I freely admit my taste is odd, even for this site.

One movie I found unwatchable was The Light of Day (1987). I saw this in the theater, but was so bored with it I actually got up in the middle and went out into the lobby to make a phone call. On the bright side, it was a duplex theater, and the other show was The Evil Dead 2. I heard people screaming in that theater and so went to see that the next night and have been a deadite ever since.

There have been a couple others that I saw in the theater, but I have blocked them so thoroughly that I can't even recall their names. One I saw in 1989 or 1990. I was alone in the theater. I think it featured Michael J. Pollard. But looking through his IMDB list, nothing rings a bell. It may have been Dark Angel, but I can't swear to it. I was making escape plans on how to get out of the theater quickly through most of the movie, but I was too cheap to actually just leave since I had paid for it.

While I agree that there are a lot more horrible movies coming out these days, I think there are just as many good ones.  The reason being that there are just more movies being released overall.  I don't think it's quite fair to dismiss anything that's been made in the last 20 or so years just because the blockbusters suck (and I agree that they often, but not always, do).  If you look hard enough, you'll see that there are movies being made now that are just as good as ever (and that there were a lot of stinkers in the "olden" days).  Just my two cents...
