Worst movie ever - Page 2

post #16 of 119
I think with movies like Armageddon, you just have to enjoy the movie for what it is, a mindless thrill-ride with great visual effects. In that context, IMO it's well shot in terms of cinematography and stuff even if it is a bit sappy at times. I forgot Blown Away, which was released while I was an undergrad at MIT... one of the most hilarious movies ever... "There's a bomb in THE MIT computer room..." as if there is only one computer room on the entire campus... they didn't even shoot that part of the movie on site, it was in some obscure office building or something, although they showed a shot of the dome from outside in one part... lol I LOVED Event Horizon, one of the best horror genre movies IMO. Congo on the other hand, was insipid. I wasn't a huge fan of Lost in Translation.

Pearl Harbor. I wanted 4 hours of my life back after this movie. An insult to the intelligence of any intelligent person. Wretched, soapy, overwrought. And of course Josh Hartnett has to die so Ben Affleck can get the girl again. Everything that's wrong with Hollywood in one movie, aptly featuring Ben Affleck. The Avengers. Poor Ralph Fiennes -- I don't think his career's been the same. Cool World. Early Brad Pitt movie, like a raunchier Roger Rabbit.

Gigli, Jersey Girl, Reindeer Games (except for the Charlize Theron part), Forces of Nature (sense a theme here?) Sitting through Pearl Harbor was perhaps worse than sitting through the actual attack... I actually like Ben Affleck (me and some buddies had drinks with him and others at Miyagi's)and think he has the potential to be a good actor, but he picks the most ridiculous movies to be in... the only ones he is in that are remotely good are Changing Lanes, Good Will Hunting, Armageddon, and The Boiler Room...

Dungeons and Dragons... Final Fantasy (and I so expected this to be good...) Remake of the Texas Chainsaw Massacre...

Matrix II and III - Why would you go and ruin the first one by making TWO pretentious, boring, insipid, unoriginal, pointless sequels? The Cooler - why even bother? You Got Served - yeah, i got served a big pile of crap. Police Academy 3,4,5,6,7,8... whatever 2Fast 2Furious - and you thought the first movie was bad. Anything with Shaquille O'Neal in it. Cool As Ice -  The first (and last) starring role for Mr. Robert Van Winkle. Mortal Kombat: Annihilation - ...duh...stupid... Forrest Gump/Castaway - F you Tom Hanks. Anaconda - DAMN. I didn't know they made snakes that big. Stop Or My Mom Will Shoot. - Sly Stallone and Estelle Getty? What genius thought this idea up? Super Mario Bros./Double Dragon/Street Fighter/Wing Commander - I loved the games/hated the movies ...more to come as I think of them. Gili - Nobody went to see it in the theaters for $10 - so why are they still trying to sell the DVD for $15?
GREAT list. koji

Best review of I've ever seen of this horrible film: (Eps. 1 and 2 have been so bad it's ruined the original trilogy for me) http://ruthlessreviews.com/movies/p/phantommenace.html koji

Without question, "The Truth About Charlie" (Mark Wahlberg). Almost as bad, but lacking a "mainstream" movie star was "Final Destination." As bad as Armageddon is, I always find myself watching it when it comes on. One of those bad but I can't turn it off movies. I must disagree with railing on Gladiator, Forrest Gump, and Castaway, all of which I enjoyed immensely.

Maybe if MIT would just upgrade the damn computer. Jon.

hmmm.... bad list continued: American Idol: From Justin to Kelly - the movie? I don't even want to watch the tv show. Night At The Roxbury/Its Pat/any number of ill-concieved SNL skits turned into movies Simon Sez - Simon Sez stick to basketball Rodman. New Rose Hotel - when Christopher Walken, Willem Dafoe, and Director Abel Ferrara can't save a movie based on a story by William Gibson, you know it sucks. Kangaroo Jack - An hour and a half long mix of home alone, crocodile dundee, and Sliders. Yep, its as bad as it sounds. All of the Batman movies except the first two Speed 2: Cruise Control Body Of Evidence - Willem Dafoe naked (ugh) Madonna naked (ugh) I may never recover. The Country Bears - A movie based on (and starring) animatronic hick bears who play the banjo and blow across empty moonshine jugs.

TokyoSlim, do you really watch this many bad movies? That requires active pursuit of them, and some of your group, man, there was no chance for a good time watching them. I just realized I can no longer write coherently. I feel like what I just wrote was translated poorly.

Yeah... that pretty much sums it up.

For about uh... six years... I watched EVERY movie that came out in the theater, and went and rented out blockbuster, hollywood video, and was working on draining Best Buy of all its movies as well. I really just don't have the time anymore to watch as many movies as I would like.

Wow - I can't believe so many of you hate Armageddon. I actually kind of liked that movie and my wife really likes it - in fact I just purchased the 2-disk Criterion collection DVD. I also have to disagree with putting The Cooler on this list - I thought that film was pretty well done. Koji - you've met my wife, so you can disagree with her view of Armageddon, but thanks for posting the Phantom Menace review - that was great and so, so completely true... Bradford
