Question: Worst movie(s)

Chacham (981) writes | about 11 years ago

User Journal 31

What is the worst movie you have ever (partly) seen?

Not a movie that is so bad you watch it again to complain about it (Superman 3, Star Trek 5) or even a movie that is just plain wrong (Ten commandments) or "wrong" (Bill and Ted's) or anything of that sort. Rather a movie that is so horrid, it is unwatchable the first time around, let alone a second time, or you feel like paying another person just so they don't watch it.

The only move i think i couldn't finish watching do to it's absolute horridity is Home Alone. (Culkin is even a worse actor than Daniel Radcliffe). Other movies would be Superman IV, Star Trek 10, and Spiderman. All of which i cannot imagine watching again without a very good reason. They are not good, funny, or have any merit whatsoever. At least in my opinion.

What would be your list?

Queen of the Damn and Dracula 2000 (1)

LinuxXPHybrid (648686) | about 11 years ago | (#6327351)

Queen of the Damn was pretty bad; I would certainly not watch it again. Dracula 2000 was pretty bad as well; I wanted to leave the movie theater but I had a company and I had to stay. If I had not been with her, I would not have watched the movie or wasted my precious $10.00.

Mother's Day (2, Interesting)

heliocentric (74613) | about 11 years ago | (#6327399)

I don't know, that movie was pretty horrible, but I'm inexplicably drawn to it... I want to see it again... I think it is entirely becuase I just could not beleive my eyes, did I see what I just saw? Did he just eat cereal out of a bucket? With a large wooden spoon? Did his mother just tell him to rape that woman?

That and when I saw it in the theater with this 6' 5" creepy red neck who kept going "Hu-huh get'er Huuuu" everytime one of the hicks chased a girl so I sort of missed the full viewing experience. I think I spent more time studying that guy to check against local most wanted posters, and planning the safest route out of there.

Some highlights from this review [imdb.com] : ...absolutely no benefit can be derived by a solitary human being on this planet by watching it ...there can be no denying that the torture, rape and murder of young girls by a family of redneck illiterates is hardly the basis for a decent movie... a benchmark for tasteless entertainment.

bethanie (675210) | about 11 years ago | (#6327436)

Or at least one of them? I don't know enough about you to be able to enumerate what I am sure are your *abundant* flaws. But that notwithstanding...

You are WAY too focused on the negative.
  • "What term do you *hate*?"

  • "What movie was the *worst*?"
    "Who can I foe?"
Really? Have you noticed that you're like the *only* person on /. who uses the "foe" feature? You have nearly as many foes as you do friends. What good does that do you? Why do you bother to enable comments, anyway, if people are just going to hurt your feelings?

How old are you, dude? Either it's purely immaturity talking (which is forgivable, and quite a relief -- you have some time to grow out of it), or you seriously need to seek some therapy. Really. All this negativity is gonna give you cancer. Find the good in the world. Buy a houseplant and keep it alive for a year. Make a positive contribution. Lighten up.

It doesn't mean you can't ever be philosophical or "deep" again -- it just repolarizes your attitude, dude.

Consider it, really. I have your best interests at heart. After all, you cared enough to go back and correct your own spelling. You can't be a complete moron. (hmmmm. Or can you? Now THERE'S a question to pose in your journal!!)

....Bethanie....

Some Woman (250267) | about 11 years ago | (#6330112)

Have you noticed that you're like the *only* person on /. who uses the "foe" feature?

That's just patently false. Check out my other [slashdot.org] freaks [slashdot.org] .

Now, his focus on negativity, that I'll give you. Additionally, his unwarranted elitism, and the fact that he doesn't understand how truly bad a movie can be. Spiderman? Fuck, man. You need to see "Master of Disguise." Only then will you understand just how horribly cringingly bad bad can be.

(Oh, and he also will likely not get a message regarding your reply because he has messages from foes turned off.)

Hmmmm.... setzman is an interesting case. He first had me on his friend list, and one day, out of the blue he changed that.

Oh, well, freaks just happen ;-) I happen to have 5 (real) freaks by now, and counting *grin*....

Re:You know what your problem is? (1)

subgeek (263292) | about 11 years ago | (#6336103)

if you use curse words he'll often foe you. there are some other criteria, but i don't remember them.

i use bad words all the time, but usually use other words online because the person reading it doesn't get the nuance of the intonation. though i still hold that my 10 year high school reunion was some whack-ass shit. that isn't directed at anyone but my experience. i don't think you can hurt feelings of your own experiences.

i just try to think of it as some people taking things more seriously than others. as i post this, i'm still a friend.

Re:You know what your problem is? (1)

jawtheshark (198669) | about 11 years ago | (#6337572)

Are we talking about Cacham or setzman? Cacham is known to foe people who use profanity. Well, I use profanity all the time and at this side of the ocean it makes me funny. I exaggerate it in such proportions that people laugh with it.

Anyways, people that can't take profanity shouldn't be my friends in the first place. Some people take slashdot just too seriously.

Re:You know what your problem is? (1)

subgeek (263292) | about 11 years ago | (#6338696)

my mind is going. i was talking about chacham. i don't know setzman and can't comment on his reasoning.

and yes, you win the grand prize. some people take slashdot way too seriously.

bethanie (675210) | about 11 years ago | (#6330706)

you're like the *only* person

A-ha! I *knew* someone would try to call me out on that one -- which is why I used the obligatory California qualifier of "like!" That leaves a LOT of leeway. Obviously, there are a lot of punk trolls around using the foe system. But none of the mature, intelligent, fun people that *I* know on /. do -- not proactive manner that *he* does.

And I don't care if he reads my replies or not -- the fact remains that I have posted here and OTHERS can read it, and it will be burnt into the archival memory of /. FOREVER.

Buahahahahaha!

buffer-overflowed (588867) | about 11 years ago | (#6333661)

If you thought Master of Disguise was bad, then check out any movie on this list [somethingawful.com] . Nukie in particular, after seeing that, my standards were so noticably lowered I could watch a film about paint drying and say afterwords, well at least it wasn't as bad as "Nukie."

I got your point though, nice little bit of counter-elitism (in regards to the bad movie bit). =)

What hurts the most... (1)

The lack of respect. ...

Then the lack of respect.

perfessor multigeek (592291) | about 11 years ago | (#6339247)

Bethanie, how many of us on /. have you now lectured, from your post of oh so supreme experience and knowledge, about how we should live our lives, function on slashdot, speak, think, etc.?
Can you give me even one example of you're doing an extended commentary on something positive about ANYBODY?
What I find is that you spend endless paragraphs lecturing us on what we should do, and occasionally, a line or two acknowledging, in passing, something positive.
Oh, somebody here should really "Lighten up", "stop focusing on the negative", and so on and it ain't Chachem.

You actually have the presumption (or maybe it's just ignorance) to ask if "it's purely immaturity talking" of somebody with a three digit slashdot ID?

"Buy a houseplant and keep it alive for a year."? Do you even *know* how condescending and trivializing you sound?

Being abusive is not "just a joke" simply on the basis of your finding it funny.

Bethanie, I don't think that you have Chachem's or any of our "best interests at heart." You seem more to me like somebody who is massively unsatisfied with her life and so needs to tell the rest of us how to live ours.

"You can't be a complete moron. (hmmmm. Or can you? Now THERE'S a question to pose in your journal!!)"
Wow, that's truly fucking offensive.

You just start off insulting and go downhill from there. All in a thread that you had no part in and to which you, as usual, contribute nothing. You just show up and start insulting the guy.

Back off, back down, and stop trying to get your jollies by trumpeting your nonexistant life wisdom to people who clearly have as much or more perspective and brains as you will ever manage.

Herr Rusty:

I have no idea. Gosh. I wish I'd been keeping count. I bet it's getting up there. I dunno. You're the statistically rigorous one. Maybe you can do a study.


Can you give me even one example of you're doing an extended commentary on something positive about ANYBODY?
Well, usually the good ones don't need extended commentary. A well-chosen tidbit [slashdot.org] of [slashdot.org] praise [slashdot.org] usually does the trick (dig a little bit -- they're there). I save the longer-winded ones for those who really *need* my help, you see? :-)


You actually have the presumption (or maybe it's just ignorance) to ask if "it's purely immaturity talking" of somebody with a three digit slashdot ID?
Hey, you never know -- I was hoping the guy had a good excuse. And since when does being an early joiner on Slashdot connote ANY kind of relevant real-world "wisdom," "perspective," or "brains?"


"Buy a houseplant and keep it alive for a year."? Do you even *know* how condescending and trivializing you sound?
Sometimes "trivial" activities like this can be very symbolic and meaningful. Maybe *you* should try it, Rusty! ;-)


Being abusive is not "just a joke" simply on the basis of your finding it funny.
That, I suppose, depends on your perspective.


You seem more to me like somebody who is massively unsatisfied with her life and so needs to tell the rest of us how to live ours.
Hmmm. I'll have to reflect on that... as I have delightfully fun, frolicsome interaction with my newfound /. friends and raise my beautiful daughter and converse with my brilliant husband and move into my dream house...


"You can't be a complete moron. (hmmmm. Or can you? Now THERE'S a question to pose in your journal!!)"
Wow, that's truly fucking offensive.
(Coming from a New Yorker, I consider that a HUGE compliment, because y'all are THE true connoisseurs of "offensive"...) I guess I should have done a "*rimshot*" afterwards, then, shouldn't I?


You just start off insulting and go downhill from there. All in a thread that you had no part in and to which you, as usual, contribute nothing. You just show up and start insulting the guy.
Pardonez moi, but I thought that was like, 92% of /. was all about. Kinda like Battlebots, except with geekly virtual personae, ya know?


Back off, back down, and stop trying to get your jollies by trumpeting your nonexistant life wisdom to people who clearly have as much or more perspective and brains as you will ever manage.
Back off: Maybe.
Back down: Probably not, unless I've made a mistake (and stating my opinion, by definition, is not wrong -- misguided, perhaps. But not wrong.).
Jollies: No way. I thrive on this shit. Don't like it? Don't read it.

Hooray for America! Hooray for Slashdot!!!

P.S. Boy, I guess that now you've used bad words in his journal, Chach will be foeing, you, too. Welcome to the club! (And if not for the potty mouth, then at least for consistently misspelling his name...)

Nope, "you're" was right: a contraction of "you are". It is worded a bit awkwardly though.

Re:Bethanie, you know what YOUR problem is? (1)

bethanie (675210) | about 11 years ago | (#6347295)

Actually, I have to back up arb on this. The way that Perf Rusty worded it was supposed to have used the possessive "your" modifying the gerundial phrase "doing an extended commentary...".

I agree that the wording is awkward. A better way to have said it might have been:
Can you give me *one* example of having written an extended commentary on something positive about ANYBODY?
or
Can you cite even a single example where you've done an extended commentary on something positive about ANYBODY?
But I don't think Rusty is very hot on being edited. He seems to get really offended by the concept that his work could use some polishing.

There were several spelling & grammatical errors in his statement, but I have a policy to overlook those unless they're in an original JE post which can be edited. Otherwise, you're just pointing out people's stupid mistakes, and that means you're never allowed to make one yourself.

I don't know about you, but I couldn't live with that kind of pressure... :-)

Re:Bethanie, you know what YOUR problem is? (1)

RedWizzard (192002) | about 11 years ago | (#6347796)

You may be right. I may have read "where" instead of "of":
Can you give me even one example where you're doing an extended commentary on something positive about ANYBODY?
Which obviously requires "you're" - it's the present tense of your second edited version:
Can you cite even a single example where you've done an extended commentary on something positive about ANYBODY?
I guess it depends whether the mistake was the "of" or the "you're" :-)
There were several spelling & grammatical errors in his statement, but I have a policy to overlook those unless they're in an original JE post which can be edited. Otherwise, you're just pointing out people's stupid mistakes, and that means you're never allowed to make one yourself.
I agree, I generally try to ignore spelling and grammer unless something can be gained by pointing it out (e.g. I might correct someone using "for all intensive purposes"). It wasn't me who pulled Rusty up on it :-)

You are correct. (1)

perfessor multigeek (592291) | about 11 years ago | (#6368695)

I meant "your". That's what I get for merging two sentences while rushed. Mea culpa.

Rustin

Re:You are correct. (1)

arb (452787) | about 11 years ago | (#6370099)

You're intent was still clear enough - even if the grammer and general sentence structure was a bit awkward. Even the best of us make mistakes at times. :-)

Bethanie, how many of us on /. have you now lectured, from your post of oh so supreme experience and knowledge, about how we should live our lives, function on slashdot, speak, think, etc.?

Mr. Pot, meet Mrs. Kettle...

I don't know either of you personally, but from my less than biased perspective, it looks like the perfessor is complaing about most people on Slashdot. I mean, do you *really* expect something different?

Bethanie, you talk about Chacham getting some therapy and relaxing but it seems that your post is filled with uptight advice. Who cares if Chacham is a dolt and has a load of pent up negativity? Maybe this is where he unloads it so he can get along IRL.

Above all, this is freakin' Slashdot and I would like to think we all have a life once the CRT dims to black... Can't we all just get along? :)

Anything done by Mark Polonia [imdb.com] ....

But I do believe the worst movie ever would be a delightful little chunk of terribleness called "Nukie." [imdb.com]

It's painful to watch... horribly painful. Some find it so bad it's funny, I found it so bad I wished I could strangle my brain with my optic nerves just to make it stop.

Deathrace 2000 (1)

The only movie that I stopped watching after only 15 minutes. I got it as a freebie on DVD with a magazine, and it was so bad that I tossed the thing out.
