    Almost every other bad movie I have seen has had some entertainment value; not this one.

    'Myra Breckenridge.'

    Which is sad, because the book was great. (Of course, I'd say the same thing about 'Last Exit To Brooklyn.')

    What does this mean?
     
  4. The worst movie I ever saw was Killer Clowns From Outer Space - it was intentionally bad, but bad it was.

    And any number of films with the aforementioned Adam Sandler.

    Easy for me...Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Had to view a VHS of it recently so that I could sell it on ebay. It was a first printing. I think I lost a few brain cells watching that movie. The DUMBEST film I've ever seen in my life. I've seen "D" rated sci-fi films that were better than this movie. Side note...sold the first printing of the film on VHS for $30. Maybe losing those brain cells was worth it :)

    For me, "Night Patrol", "Snow Day" or "Welcome to Mooseport" and "The Island of Dr. Moreau" fit the bill.
    And I'm sure I've seen worse movies but these are the ones that popped into my head.

    I walked out a third of the way through Zoolander 2. The only time I've ever done that.

    I usually like Adam Sandler movies, but Eight Crazy Nights is the worst movie I recall seeing.

    Another vote for "Cloverfield"
    Mike Meyers' "The Cat In The Hat"
    any Adam Sandler movie where he is in 'bratty toddler' mode.

  18. "Symbolism and allegory", pshaw. Peter Greenaway is a teller of pretentious shaggy dog stories, and any deeper meanings are generated by the cinaesthetes who work up ex-post explanations to rationalize the time they spent watching one of his movies. :)

  20. Anyway: my first choice, which I also flagged in the earlier thread, is Highway of Heartache - a desperately affected attempt to make a piece of camp kitsch, shot completely on intentionally-fake looking sets and full of attempts to be "transgressive". The sort of movie you want to walk out of because you feel acutely embarrassed for all involved, yet cannot leave because you want to see if it can get any worse.

    Movies that are written for and marketed to the gay community specifically tend to have the same charm of Tyler Perry films. Lukewarm mush, poorly acted, poorly scripted, boring stories. There's the odd Get Real, When I'm 64, Bent, Weekend or Shelter that manage to do something a little bit more interesting. But by and large, the LGBT-themed films I've seen mostly belong in the garbage. Thankfully, it seems to be getting better slowly, again partly in due to quality films like Weekend and Shelter.

    Cloverfield is a blast with a good subwoofer. It is like a wild ride watching Cloverfield with my Rythmik E15HP - I swear my house moves. Sub makes all the difference and if you need to test your new sub - this is the movie. Certainly worse movies out there.

    Yeah - it will give you a headache for sure - but the smile you have as you enjoy what a powerful sub can do - just like playing a great acoustic guitar album with nice speakers.
