After the "good movies" thread I'll like to make a "bad movies" thread, it's because few days ago I saw a movie called "Druids", and it was reall bad... Also Hackers is on the worst movies I've every seen...

What about you

You are right... In fact I hate the star wars movies, they are so unreal, and I think for a movie to be good it should be realistic, to make you believe that it can really happen...

There are a lot of movies I hate, cant remember all their names. I watched this movie 'Tank Girl' the other day, the movie sucked, but I somehow had fun watching it!! So, my vote is 'Tank Girl'.

A cheap movie called "campfire stories". It's one of those movies where its supposed to be serious and scary, but it ends up just being funny as hell cause it's so lame. But, it's definetly not worth the money to rent.


"glass house" was really lame too

Buried Alive. We rented it because it had a warning label on the front of it - "One of the goriest movies ever". Shoulda said "Warning: 5 lines of dialogue in this movie". That movie was f'ed up beyond all reason.

My other choice would be "Dude, where's my car"

I don't care if a movie's realistic or whatever (otherwise I wouldn't like Swordfish) - if it's not a documentary, as long as it's entertaining, I don't care.

Embrace Of The Vampire was pretty bad, only worth watching for the one scene where Alyssa Milano is topless.

Il Decameron by Pier Paolo Pasolini
This is actually nine different stories, all of them from Giovanni Boccaccio's 14th-century novel.
It takes a lot of effort to watch this movie, turn the volume down, or all shouting Italians will get on your nerves.
The actors has certainly given the word 'overplay' a whole new meaning to me. I've never seen its like.

Many recent american war movies* has scared me a lot, too. Are the americans really buying propaganda like that?

*) Such as Black Hawk Down, etc.

About 90% of the movies made are so unrealistic that it's not even funny.

Star Wars is great.

Dude Where's My Car was a funny as crap movie if you like the stupid humor stuff (which I do :) )

My vote for worst movie would be a movie called 'Bats'. I lost a few IQ points after watching about half of it.

Recent movies I've seen that I hated the hell out of:

Battlefield Earth
From Hell
Gosford Park
Jason X

And PS, i loved Starship Troopers as well! As long as you go in knowing that it will be cheesy and completely different from the book I think its a fun movie.

>>Such as Black Hawk Down, etc.<<

With you on the American movie's distorted view of war, but I thought that Black Hawk Down was one of the better representations and thoroughly enjoyed it. Behind Enemy Lines however, what a pile of garbage, especially the ending!!

Hated movies:

Bad Boys (With a Passion!!! Two guys bicker all through a film, drove me nuts!!)
What Women Want (Getting in touch with his feminine side...please!!)
Black ?something? (Vin Diesel rubbish that I turned off after 1/2 hour)
Mad Max films
Titanic
Reign of Fire
Spiderman


Films I thought I would hate and then really enjoyed:
Ten things I hate about you
Captain Correli's Mandolin
Meet Joe Black
Billy Elliot

And you didn't like Pitch Black?? I loved that movie! Favorite SciFi/Horror movie behind Aliens!

I still don't get how that's a war movie. It's an action movie with a war backdrop. The Sound of Music happens during a war - does that make it a war movie, too?

interesting. I work 8:30-5:30 5 days a week, commuting takes an hour or so of my day away from me. I think that's enough real world for me. If I want reality I can walk outside. A movie is an escape from reality.

I second "the glass house". No story, no shock, no suspense, terrible.

Black Hawk Down glorifies the American soldiers, while the Somalis is pictured as war-loving, incompetent and stupid people, living in herds countering bullets by throwing rocks.

Black Hawk Down is not abysmally bad as a movie (2/5) but what really scares me is people (including Scott himself) saying that BHD is very realistic, or even documentary.

Btw, here are many bad movies:

Worst movie ever ?

Fire on the Amazon. (http://www.fireontheamazon.com/fireontheamazon/)

http://us.imdb.com/Title?0106913

I'm a big Sandra Bullock Fan and this was the only one I did not know. I should have left it at that. Sandra has a nude scene there. Looks great, but still I wish I never heard of it. It's so stereotypical, it's absurd. I can't even begin to describe how bad it is.

I've never heard anything else about it - you have proof that's not the way things actually happened?

Ah yeah, talking about different things. I wasn't claiming that BHD was true to life cos frankly I haven't a clue what really happened out there. I just think it paints quite a good picture of war itself, being very nasty regardless of whose side you are on.

True, realism is a complex term; I do not doubt that the guns, choppers and environment is realistic, for example.
But the quotes and behaviour of the americans contra the somalis is another matter:

"We don't want your american democracy, we like war down here" (paraphrased)

I have written an analysis of this subject for Vxj University, so I'm not completly writing of the top of my head, but I admit that it is a very complex question. Unfortunaly it's written in Swedish.

But realistic -- no. Just look at the the two clowns in the middle of the movie (the hearing impaired and the other). WTF is that?

And why do the americans shoot so much better than the somalis all the time?

Have you seen The birth of a nation (http://us.imdb.com/Title?0004972)? The crashed helicopter scene reminds much of the mulatto's men storming the small cottage. Enough said.

The latest one was Jason X.. oh god *shutters*

There was one a long time ago that I watched, I can't remember the name, the plot was actually a pinyata coming alive and killing people.

I've seen too many of those... I Accuse My Parents, Manos, etc... Thank you, Mystery Science Theater!

I think some of the things added to BHD were added solely for entertainment (like the deaf guy... I agree with you there - wtf?). When you look at the numbers, though - how many dead on both sides? Like less than 20 Americans and about 1000 Somalis? It's pretty clear to me who shot better - the guys in the move are Delta Force and Army Rangers - that's the best of the best, there. They sure better shoot better than some somali civilian or militia member.

> The crashed helicopter scene

But that's what happened. IIRC, they actually did parade the guy's stripped body through the streets.

Just a guess... Because in the context of the movie the Americans depicted are highly trained, professional soldiers (weren't they supposed to be some type of special forces unit?). The Somalis on the other hand are probably just guys off the street who have been given guns and forced to fight for a particular warlord. They may have little formal training in the use of their weaponry and their knowledge of small unit/squad tactics might be severely lacking which could contribute to them not knowing of or taking proper advantage of available cover and suppressive fire techniques and well-coordinated assaults; all of which could potentially contribute to them appearing to be struck by fire much more than the Americans.

Davros
01-08-2003, 12:53 PM
>I think you may need more than that, Davros...

Well, actually the question was simply what was the worst film, rather than what is the worst film & why?

But since you're asking, then because it's the most boring, long drawn out and pointless drivel I have ever seen. What really got me is that it finished at 23:05, whereas if it had had the decency to finish at 22:50, I could have made it to the pub for last orders (bars/pubs close at 23:00 in the UK).

Also, the film never had an ending. Rather it abrubtly stopped in the middle of the action. If I'd have known this was going to happen, I could have left half way through & made it to the pub instead.

I think the film relies on 'intellectual snobbery', where people claim that to enjoy the film you had needed to read all the books first, and because they had read all the books they are more cleverer. King & no clothes and all that.

Govtcheez
01-08-2003, 12:55 PM
I'll be the first to say I don't really like the books (Tolkien's writing style's not for me), but I really enjoyed the movie... I think the ending was fine, since you go into it knowing there're 2 more movies coming out...

Wait - which LOTR did you mean? Fellowship or the Two Towers?

Davros

That's OK. Glad you enjoyed it.

Bah! I'm not gonna be suckered into watching any more.

1. The Blair Witch Project. This overhyped movie was so awful that I kept wondering when the "scary parts" would happen. They never did. Instead, I listened to a group of people shout profanities while running around in the woods and shakily holding their camera.

2. Hackers. Script kiddie culture adores anything that gives them a view of the life of a "real hacker." It was really a crappy love story with bad music and Angelina Jolie at her least attractive. Every time a computer screen was shown, it was some sort of unrealistic 3-D thing, which made the whole thing seem like some half-attempted joke.

3. Any musical.

4. Dude! Where's My Car? This movie was repetitive with a poor plot. Few of the jokes were funny at all.

5. James Bond: The World Is Not Enough. I stopped watching it half way through. Luckily, it was only a rented video.

Woohoo, someone with the bottle to speak out!! I too am not into the whole fantasy stuff either and although I didn't think it was as bad as you did, I certainly found it no better than mediocre. And like you, I definitely notice an air of pretentiousness (is that a word?) around it. It's like, if you didn't like it, you can't have understood it or you are to narrow minded to appreciate the 'beauty' of it. Up until now I just played along with the whole 'oh yeah it's great', but nice to see I'm not the only one who didn't think it all that great.

EDIT: just thought of another movie:

Planet of the Apes (Utter rubbish, and after all that hype)

No, it was definitely pretentious. Also, half the length would be cut out if they would have cut every scene of someone staring longingly at the ring or Frodo crying.

I still like it, though - it's an epic tale that's told pretty well, IMHO. It's also one of the only decent fantasy movies out in awhile.

Actually it is the other way around, let me quote an american soldier, complaining how he never has fought:
"I made coffee through Desert Storm. I made coffee through Panama."
We see other young american newbie soldiers as well.
The Somalis OTOH has had a long time of civil war.



But that's what happened. IIRC, they actually did parade the guy's stripped body through the streets.

The parading of the body is my least objection to that scene, but it's not so much a question on what really happend as how it is depiced on the screen.
Remember the dying soldier with a photo of his family in his hand?

> Remember the dying soldier with a photo of his family in his hand?

That's frequently referred to as "drama". Being a dramatic movie, I'd expect to see some.

> We see other young american newbie soldiers as well.

That's all well and good, but the casualty figures don't lie. Wayyyy more Somalis than Americans died in Mogadishu that day. It makes sense to me that the Americans shot better, at the very least.

Nemesis was pretty bad, bunch of old geezers with canes limping around and shooting each other with phazers. I mean come on, Star Trek is much better than stooping to the "bad guys always miss no matter how close they are while the good guys have perfect accuracy from a mile away" action movie cliche.

My favorite part was when Riker told Worf to cover for him, then proceeds to slowly shuffle over to the vent amidst heavy fire, then just sorta falls over into it. Blech.

Bad movie though, wow, since I went through a horror film run a few years ago, renting every possible horror movie I could find(B-grade or not)...I could name a few. I'll stick to something with recognition though.

Harry Potter/LOTR. (Choose one)
