What's the Worst Movie You've Ever Seen?

Cliff posted more than 10 years ago | from the trash-of-the-box-office dept.

Movies 1675

prostoalex asks: "A recent Ask Yahoo! article talks about the worst movies ever made and points out this IMDB list of the bottom rankings. The Ask Yahoo! article names Manos The Hands of Fate the worst one, but apparently the IMDB table changed since then to include The Wild World of Batwoman at the top of the list. What would you consider the worst movie ever made? Perhaps anything listed here would also make the list?"

Shrek (0, Troll)

Patik (584959) | more than 10 years ago | (#9968094)

I know this isn't a very popular opinion, but 'Shrek' is the worst movie I've ever seen. I was so utterly disappointed by both the animation, the characters, and the story, the very things that seemed to rave about. The animation looked like a beta version of 'Toy Story', which by the way came out six years prior. The story was one gimmick after another. I despised all the characters, especially the donkey. I did not feel anything positive towards Shrek (the character) because of his attitude; I wasn't rooting for him at all.

Overall I have never been so disappointed by a movie. There was so much potential, but they really let me down. I've seen a lot of bad movies, but they end up being funny because of how bad they are, or they at least have an original story. 'Shrek' just made me feel sorry for the folks who made it.

My room mates and I decided to rent it one knight based soley on the Dragons on the box. It turned out to remind me of a student film by some drop out. Every time the hero entered, EVERY time, they played the same fanfare. To top it off, there weren't any dragons, just a portal with a humanoid demon-looking thing trying to step through. Bad as it is, I still recommend everyone try and watch it. Until you see it, your meter for bad, nay all movies isn't properly calibrated. As a side note, they have two sequals of which I intend to watch.

Maybe Street Fighter: The Movie? Or something of that ilk?

I hate watching movies where I can't suspend disbelief, if that makes sense. I mean, if a movie doesn't make the characters or plot believable, there's not much point in watching it.

Also, I suspect expectation has much to do with this thread. I was told The Talented Mr. Ripley was a COMEDY before I saw it, and it was probably the least funny movie ever made in the history of the world ever.

This movie had Walter Matthau and Robin Williams. Two funny comedians. Usually in a really bad movie, i leave but this movie was torture. This movie had only 4 or 5 funny jokes about 10 to 15 minutes apart. As I watched this in the theatre, i was thinking this movie isn't funny and felt the movie was boring and was getting ready to leave to change movies, then they told a hilarious joke and then you think its going to get very funny, then nada for another 10 to 15 minutes, then i was getting ready to leave then a nother hilarious joke.

Eyes Wide Shut (3, Interesting)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#9968156)

Eyes Wide Shut has to be the worst movie I've ever seen. The music was terrible like someone was just trying to annoy you by randomly hitting the high pitch keys of a piano. It had so much nudity and was such a stupid story. It wasn't a porn, it wasn't a movie, it was floating somewhere in the middle that made no sense and wasted everyones time who watched it.

The movie was so bad I wonder if it contributed to Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman's divorce. It had to as after being in that movie I probably couldn't face anyone I was in the movie with. It was that bad!

tverbeek (457094) | more than 10 years ago | (#9968180)

There are all sort of so-bad-they're-good movies out there (the James Whale library, Rocky Horror), and a steady supply of so-stupid-they're-bad movies that no one expects anything of (e.g. low-budget teen sex comedies, Alien vs. Predator). Open it up to "of all time" and there's just too much garbage to pick through.

But the worst this-was-supposed-to-be-good-but-it's-crap movies I've seen in recent memory have been Riddick (a bunch of "clever" "ideas" apparently ripped out of a sullen 14-year-old's spiral notebook, then glued together with a hefty FX budget, but no story) and Anger Management (which seemed more like a psych experiment intended to see how many lame gags and how much spastic acting the audience would put up with without going ballistic themselves).

Manos: Hands of Fate (1)

back_pages (600753) | more than 10 years ago | (#9968186)

I have seen this "Manos: Hands of Fate" and it is truly an awful movie. There is no explanation given whatsoever to the background. There is no explanation provided for why one of the first evil characters has grotesquely disfigured legs. There is one part where the final print of the movie has three different takes in sequence. The woman walks to the door *snip* the woman walks to the door and gets closer *ship* the woman walks to the door *snip* the woman goes through the door PRAISE GOD LET THE MOVIE END.

With a group of friends, though, the movie is awesome to MST3K. Yes, I'm making a verb out of that.

The movie even has some very lengthy scenes of women in 1960s style underwear (meaning about eight times the amount of fabric used by Victoria's Secret) wrestling in the sand... and it's not that interesting. I really expected there to be some gratuitous nudity just to add some value to the flick, but, no. In fact, the movie is quite remarkable in that the script totally sucks, the camera work totally sucks, and they STILL managed to avoid any cliche that might have made the movie interesting. It's like the producer was completely inept, but he wasn't going to stoop to the levels of other tacky movies that were successful, popular, or better than awful.

If you can find this on DVD sometime, it's certainly worth ~$10, in my opinion, just for this hilariousness of its failure. The only real gripe is that the movie is so bad that it begins to rival homemade camcorder movies, and in that sense loses some of its legitimacy as the worst real movie of all time, but I think few people would have very strict rules for such a dubious award.

Arthur (3, Informative)

cyberkahn (398201) | more than 10 years ago | (#9968188)

The worst move ever. Overall the movie reminded me of a medieval Scary Movie; however, the sad thing was it wasn't supposed to be. It was a bunch of pop culture integrated with the story of Arthur. The Saxons looked like the Barbarians in the Capital One Commercials. You know, "What's in your wallet?" Arthur's speech was a cross between William Wallace's in Braveheart and Henry the V's St. Crispin Day speech. The fight scenes were obviously choreographed. The acting was stereotypical British acting that reminded me of Eddie Izzard's commentary of stacking matches. I expected the Saxon kind to ask if Arthur had a flag. To sum it up it was the biggest waste of my money ever.

My thoughts... (1)

rde (17364) | more than 10 years ago | (#9968206)

That IMDB list is pretty bogus; there are a bunch of films with three stars on average. Plan 9 [imdb.com] doesn't even get a mention. Good to see Robocop 3 and Highlander 2 on the list, even though some people obviously gave both more than no stars.

My nomination for worst movie ever? Armageddon [imdb.com] . Damn, I hated that movie so much. People talk about Plan 9 being bad, but this is worse. If Ed Wood had been given godzillions of dollars for special effects, he'd have produced Armageddon.

Of course, it's possible that we'll never know what the worst movies are, cos we'll never see them. But of those that we do see, I'm more forgiving of dubious b-movies; if you've no budget, you've got to make do with what you have. But if your budget stretches to paying an actual actor, we can be more demanding; when you've got Titanic-level budgets, you've got no fucking excuse.

In case you care, movies I saw recently that sucked include Godsend [robertelliott.org] , Twisted [robertelliott.org] and The Day After Tomorrow [robertelliott.org] .

Dark City has to be the worst movie I have ever seen in my life. I don't care if Proyas had a vision and I missed out on the subtler aspects of the plot but this movie was horrible.
It seemed like someone was trying to mix White Wolf with Philip K. Dick because it seemed cool, not because there was a story to be told. The only nice thing I can say about the movie was the set designs were pretty.

Alien Vs Predator, Event Horizon (2, Insightful)

or every other movie made by Paul W. S Anderson.

Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon. Too realistic to suspend disbelief, too stupid to be real. In addition, it was a LOVE STORY that got sold as an action movie. Yuk.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (1)

Dear god that movie sucked

Ballistic: Ecks vs. Sever... (2, Interesting)

Tsar (536185) | more than 10 years ago | (#9968220)

...The only thing worse than The Life of David Gale ever to make it out of the editing room. All these movies beg the questions: At what point do they first realize it and say "It's too late to go back now?" Is it ever really too late? And if not, what's the most expensive movie ever made that didn't get distributed because it was Just That Bad?

Dreamcatcher (0)

Anonymous Coward | more than 10 years ago | (#9968222)

...based on the book by Stephen King. If you get the chance, don't watch it.

Once in a while you'd find a good movie but they're getting better at filtering thost out so it's not worth digging throught it anymore. What's in Walmart's bargin bin. Think of the dvd's the MPAA would distribute if they had to do an RIAA type settlement.

Have a look at the IMDB bottom 100 [imdb.com] and search for "police".

I'm sorry, but M Night Shyamalan's movies are full of just absurd plot holes. You mean to tell me that you've got a race of creatures that are capable of traveling through space, but they can't figure out how to break through a door? That those same aliens apparently lack any sort of telescopic device that would show them the Earth being covered in water ? How the hell do you miss that ? That a life form that reacts violently with water is cabale of surviving in an oxygen based atmosphere that is heavily saturated with water vapor? That when faced with an army of invading aliens, you would choose to lock yourself in your basement rather than heading towards a military base?

Even if you just look at the movie for its message, it's still retarded. You're supposed to come out of that thing thinking like 'oh there was someone looking out for them all along' - of course there was someone looking out for them -it's a movie! It wasn't 'god' that killed Gibson's wife and then set all that stuff up so that the aliens would die - it was M. Night Shyamalan, who wrote the script for the film. Of course it all worked out just right. Gah!

Cabin Fever (1)

DevilsEngine (581977) | more than 10 years ago | (#9968233)

Bar none, Cabin Fever is the worst thing I've ever seen on film. Compared to Cabin Fever, Troma films are Oscar worthy. Second runner up would be nearly anything by Jerry Bruckheimer. The Rock. Con Air. And especially the complete godawful Armageddon. Good lord, what a stinker.

Space Cowboys (1)

bsane (148894) | more than 10 years ago | (#9968234)

I think Space Cowboys is the worst movie that comes to mind.

I'm still mad at myself I didn't walk out when it opened with a flashback to the 1950s space training (in black and white so you know its old!!), the scene had 20 year old actors playing the parts of Clint Eastwood and Tommy Lee Jones, but when they talked they had their voices dubbed over with the older actors voice... It actually got worse from there...

Resident Evil (1)

Pop69 (700500) | more than 10 years ago | (#9968235)

Even Milla Jovovich getting her kit off couldn't save it.

The Wild World of Batwoman (1)

argonaut (37085) | more than 10 years ago | (#9968237)

This movie so bad it is truly painful to watch. It is ten times worse than the 1966 Batman movie.

The Wild World of Batwoman [imdb.com]

"Plot Outline: The pointlessly-named Batwoman and her bevy of Batmaidens fight evil and dance."

Huh? ... fight evil and dance ?

Freddy Vs. Jason (1)

racerxroot (786164) | more than 10 years ago | (#9968241)

Freddy Vs. Jason sucked. they took common qualities of movies (like a hero, who falls, then somehow regains himself and saves the day) and repeated them continously throughout this movie... so gimmicky and stupid. the acting was horrible - one minute the naked girl is swimming, the next she's in complete terror... she went from one extreme to the next in a matter of 3 seconds, simply by hearing a cracking stick in the woods.. agh.. this movie was bad.
