Titanic: The Animated Movie. Behold.

No, no, the OTHER animated Titanic movie. Yes, there's more than one. Yes, the other is just as, if not somehow even MORE unbelievably stupid than the one above. At least in that one people died. The other, from the very beginning, goes to say that no one ever died in the tragedy. Rapping dog? Cue in cutesy giant octopus that saves everyone.

So seriously? Nobody's said Birdemic: Shock and Terror yet? I'm disappointed in all of you.

The trailer does it too much justice. It makes it seem like James Nguyen knew how bad Birdemic manages to be, which, when watching, it's very apparent that he had NO IDEA. Although it's entertaining in its own beautiful way, holy shit.

Alternatively, it's Manos: The Hands of Fate, which is just too boring to be watchable. The worst movie actually presented as a film that I've ever seen was probably Ghost Dog: Way of the Samurai or About Cherry. I'd say both are similarly awful, but while About Cherry is more watchable, Ghost Dog is not a porn recruitment movie, so I'd say it probably wins by default.

Wolf Creek was just plodding, misogynistic, and shallow. didn't even have charm so i could love to hate it like The Room. :(

At the suggestion of a co-worker, I went out and rented Idiocracy. They raved about it. That's 87 min of my life that I'll never get back. Can't believe I actually finished that shit. The Spirit, Erik the Viking, and Super Mario Bros (lol) also come to mind.

Erik the Viking is awesome. You crazy! "Now you see me, now you don't." :P

I'm not sure if it's the worst, but I hated eXistenZ with a passion.

Strippers Vs. Werewolves. I'm usually a fan of shitty horror movies but this was just too bad.

Well, I was going to say The Bounty Hunter (which I was forced to watch), the new Arthur, or Transformers II, but this really took the cake. Couldn't even believe that tripe was supposed to be just one scene (no splicing clips together) until I looked into it more. Shit...

To the OP, Idiocracy is what you make of it. If you interpret the film as pure satire and if you feel that way about people around you, you'll love it; if you just see it as another comedy and if you think the premise is outlandish and doesn't apply to life at all, you'll hate it. I'm definitely in the former group, but I understand the sentiments of the latter group.

#59 Posted by Hunter5024 (5503 posts) -

Street Fighter The Legend of Chun Li was probably the worst movie I ever saw, but I don't think there's any movie I actively hated as much as Identity when I finished that. It's always the ones you think you'll like that suck the worst.

I turned off Slumdog Millionaire 40 minutes in or so. And I've watched a lot of crap over the years.

it was probably mostly an issue with the trailer advertising it as "the best feel-good movie in years" or something ... and that did not fit with the movie I watched for 40 minutes.

#61 Edited by Bourbon_Warrior (4523 posts) -

Safety Not Gauranteed - typical indy movie, tell me if you have heard this before... Awkward girl talks to weird guy, girl falls in love with weird guy because he is so different. That's the movie oh and hes crazy and has claimed to make a time machine....maybe he did.

i actually preferred Benjamin Button to it by a decent margin.

Probably this porn from a long time ago about a freak circus. I have thankfully blocked out most of it, but I still remember two scenes specifically. The first was a scene where a midget with a huge dick had sex with an extremely overweight bearded lady; which was rather gross. Then there was a second scene with a very pretty tattooed lady with large breasts doing a strip dance with a large snake.

Is it the same director or why are you comparing BB to Slumdog? It's been a while but I don't recall Button being particularly feel-goody either. Though I had no trouble sitting through that movie. Was enjoyable enough but I don't care to see it again.

Another really bad one was Men in Black 2. I bought it on DVD in that cool packaging with MiB 1 but I have never ever watched it since first seeing it in the theater (when I fell asleep during it).

i just compared them b/c they were both in running for oscars that year and Slumdog won out. BB was probably my pick out of all the nominees for best picture. frost/nixon and the reader were ok (the reader fell victim to being a little over-dramatic, Frost/Nixon was interesting but not sure how well it worked as a film. never saw Milk). i know oscars are worth fuck-all to most people you'd ask but i don't want to open that can of worms.

I've seen alot of terrible movies probably not the worst I've seen but Season of the Witch / Grown up's / Resident Evil 4, all of them I probably made it through like 10-25 minutes before I had to turn them off and walk away.. My friend forced me to watch the RE later and god was it terrible

TED was horrible, it made it even worse too cause the people I was watching it with were laughing hysterically. I would've just left, but I was relying on a ride home from one of these easily humored buffoons, god was that awful.

#77 Posted by Roger778 (953 posts) -

@mowcrosoft:

Ted is the funniest movie I've seen so far this year.

As for the worst movie I've seen lately, that honor goes to Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance. I enjoyed the first one, but this one was too idiotic, and way too over-the-top for my tastes.

I can't think of one movie I've absolutely hated, and that's because I've seen so many movies over the years.

#78 Edited by mlarrabee (2868 posts) -

It's a toss-up between the first MB Transformers and Hancock.

EDIT: But the worst "great" movies I've seen was The Wizard of Speed and Time.

Here's its short-film precursor:

@Roger778: @Roger778: Ah, so we have one of these easily humored buffoons in the flesh, or cyber flesh I suppose. Please explain how this movie was funny? I guess the first time you hear "getting high with my teddy bear" it may evoke a small chuckle, but these lazy attempts at humor got old rather fast. What a pitiful movie.

Ready to Rumble. As a former big Wrestling fan, that movie was horrible.

I for some reason enjoyed Ready to Rumble, maybe because it showed how good WCW was at screwing things up.

As for worst movie I've seen, The Bounty Hunter ranks up there. Actually I would say Troll 2 was a better comedy the The Bounty Hunter.

#82 Posted by Nottle (1912 posts) -

I think the most I've been bored in a theatre was the International. I don't remember ANYTHING from that movie other than a shootout on a big spiral hotel lobby.

Also I hate to call it bad, but I zone out every time I've seen Inception (which is twice.) A shame because i like the Prestige and the Nolan Batman movies.

I've seen the Room and that movie is entertaining so I like it. I'm trying to think of more movies that are horrible that left some impact on me. Really my biggest complaint is if something is boring. I can't think of more.

#83 Posted by jakob187 (21640 posts) -

Hellbreeder and 13 Seconds are pretty terrible, although the twist at the end of 13 Seconds is pretty awesome.

However, the literal worst two movies are still Troll 2 and Flesh-Eating Mothers, despite that both can be enjoying on a purely ironic ideal.

#84 Posted by TheRealMoot (334 posts) -

Birdemic. It caused me and my friends physical trauma to watch and one of us broke down before getting all the way through it and starting breaking stuff and screaming incoherent nonsense.

Also, Troll 2 is pretty f***ing painful to watch.

@wewantsthering: As someone who has seen Plan 9 From Outer Space over 40 times and has also seen Flesh-Eating Mothers over 40 times, I can easily tell you that you should watch Flesh-Eating Mothers before making that decision.

Seriously, the acting in Plan 9 is Oscar-worthy by comparison.

Yeah, I'm sure it's not that bad of a movie, but after the movie ended I recalled nothing other than the "hotel" (sorry I only remembered the museam having a big stair case, some guy bleeding out, and a lot of glass being broken.) Also the ending was on a rooftop and there was a phone call.

It's like I blacked out or something. I could not have been more bored during the movie, I didn't fall asleep or anything, it's like a suppressed memory of an experience I was hardly conscious during.

#95 Edited by LarryDavis (835 posts) -

Anyone who thinks Super Mario Bros is a really bad movie is just blindly following what other people say. It's a pretty good sci-fi flick that doesn't take itself or the source material too seriously, and it's better for it. Really good effects for its time, too, and fun set design. It's barely related to the games, but given that the games then (and now, really) had very little resembling a "story" I'm not sure how that's a bad thing. There are cool easter egg-y references to the games anyway. Also, Mojo Nixon and Fisher Stevens.

It seems the actors hating it is always brought up as some sort of condemnation on its quality, but that fuckin thing was a nightmare to make, so of course they hate it. Hoskins had his damn foot broke and filmed a lot of it in a cast. The directors and producers were constantly arguing about what direction to take it, and the script was getting re-written on the fly.

All things considered, I think it turned out really well. If you just watch it as some random sci-fi caper, it's definitely way better than popular consensus would have you believe.

Anyway, The Spirit is, I think, the only movie I just voluntarily stopped watching because it was so goddamn awful. I LOVED Sin City but hooooooooooooly god.

That's not even close to the worst Ernest movie, let alone all movies. (worst is Ernest Goes to Africa or maybe Goes To School or In The Army, best is Goes To Jail)

I think it's a tie between Birdemic and Monster a go go 
The Guy from Harlem gets an honorable mention, though 
 
@jakob187: Ok I watched the first minute or so and this movie is hilarious. It seems almost intentionally bad. I'd call this so bad it's good and is definitely not the worst movie I've seen (although definitely the most inept- yes, based on 1 minute you can tell, haha). 
 
Now, you might say, "...but you chose Birdemic." Ya, I did. It was an easy draw but incredibly entertaining because it makes so little sense. After Last season is an easy draw too. Only movie I've ever not been able to finish, though, is Monster a go go so that's why I always say that is the worst ive seen. I have a hard time sticking to one answer though =P

Battlefield Earth is really bad, everything Uwe Bull ever directed is garbage (I watched it all, we forced ourselves through his movies on a few weekends...), but the most recent movie that comes to mind is Battle Los Angeles... I have never felt that uncomfortable watching a movie and it was the first time I ever thought about leaving the cinema prematurely.

That is funny, ExistenZ is my favourite movie of all time.

-"god.. THE MECHANIC" /gas, willem dafoe.

Killer performances by everyone involved and the wooden characters sometimes introduced are explained at the end of the movie when their performances are played down as mundane average joes :) Also really eerie atmosphere and the sounds are quite good (being a music producer I do pay a lot of attention to sounds in movies).

Worst movies i've seen are Waterworld and Battlefield Earth.
