You should've seen the sequel!
Hard to remember the bad ones. You kinda tend to forget them. But I remember hating:
Lena Wertmullers "Seven Beauties"
Ken Russells "Tommy"
and 90% of Netflix.
Night of Horror, but it's still kind of cool for a low budget cult classic.
Children of the Corn
As to The Cook, The Thief, his Wife and her Lover. I was taken in by the visuals when I saw it. I think I've watched it 3 times since. It is a wild attempt to put a story into dutch master paintings. Brilliant.
"Evan Almighty", narrowly edging out "Hot Tub Time Machine 2"
JJ Abrams' Star Trek....just awful....
Gettting really hard to keep up with a list like this with all the garbage coming out of Hollywood these days.
Sorry but I did say that the worst movie in question had to be watched in it's entirety.
Midnight Cowboy. I suffered it out in a cinema somewhere in east London back around 1970. It did absolutely nothing for me.
How about a guy is really moody in high school and has an affair with his best friend by accident. But then he gets bullied so he runs away and becomes street trade. There he has several encounters with creepy perverts but falls in love with another hustler by the name of Dingo. Dingo has AIDS and claims he's straight, and he's only doing this to help his crystal meth addiction. He gets into porn and suddenly disappears. Then every secondary character dies, and the movie ends with our hero on the bus going somewhere out of town, and that's it.
Oh, wait. That's like at least 20 of them...
'Howard the duck' comes to mind
Oh, you know better. You don't really think there is no such thing as intentional symbolism/allegory. "The Cook,..." is the only Greenaway movie I've ever seen, so I don't know what he's typically like. He may very well be pretentious and probably is, but even if his anger at consumer culture went right over my head, I'd enjoy it on a superficial level for Helen Mirren's hotness.
Quote from the director "This is a diary of our own molestation by the Serbian government... It's about the monolithic power of leaders who hypnotize you to do things you don't want to do. You have to feel the violence to know what it's about." I haven't seen it yet, but have been meaning to after reading some reviews. I have a strong stomach, but still have to be in the right headspace to get anything out of these kinds. The director surely had more in mind that just showing extreme violence. I don't know if you're supposed to actually care about the characters as shown, or just accept what they represent. And even knowing and accepting all that, doesn't mean its enjoyable at all to watch. I'll have to check it out sometime soon.
Well, perhaps that is true ;however, the point he wants to convey gets lost in translation. I'll put it like this. Every disgusting, violent, and perverse sex act imaginable is in this movie. The story is really choppy and most of the time it's hard to tell what scene is a flashback and what scene is not. I think he could have brought this message across in a better way.
I know I say this every time these "worst movie" threads come up, but....
Based on some of the examples people are listing, a lot of you guys have obviously not seen very many movies in your lifetime.
Change the hustler's name to "Zoot" and you may have something.
Any film by Adam Sandler is just too easy, so I'll go with something more high-brow.
Lar Von Trier's Dogville. A horrible experience.
Ah, I remember this well. The horror.
He has more than one mode?
Gone Fishin' with Joe Pesci and Danny Glover.
My favorite WTF moment was when they were able to cripple the alien spaceship--technology that they had never encountered before--with a computer virus. An awful movie, along with all of the Michael Bay crap.
These threads quickly become "well-known/popular movies I don't like".
I can understand people saying they don't like "Citizen Kane" or "Midnight Cowboy", but calling them "the worst movie(s) you have ever seen" is absurd.
Or even stuff like the 2009 "Star Trek" or some of the comedies picked here. Seriously, if "40-Year-Old Virgin" is the worst movie you've ever seen, you need to get out more...
Now THAT'S a legit pick - and it might be mine!
"Sleepaway Camp" has inexplicably become a cult classic, but it's as bad as filmmaking gets. There's really nothing it does right - silly story, bad script, terrible acting, incompetent direction, inane music, etc.
Sleepaway Camp [Blu-Ray] (1983) »
