    I rented "People I Know" on Friday night.  It is quite possibly the worst movie starring two Academy Award winners (Al Pacino, Kim Basinger).

    I thought that was "The Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" ?

    LIT was great, but it sure helped to have visited Japan.

    I always like Independece Day, in a perverted way but I can't stand the way they throw science out the window in Armageddon. On a similar note, when I saw 'Lost in Space' I just thought: Oh damn, this is a childrens' movie. Not a bad movie at all, just not for us, I guess.

    The SF movie I would not like to see again: Tron

    While looking for a mindless horror movie a couple months ago, I made the grevious error of renting "House of the Dead" from Netflix.

    DON'T EVER watch that movie...

    The same director did "Alone in the Dark" and it has the very dubious distinction of receiving the worst rating EVER on Rotten Tomatoes (1% fresh)

    wha? Tron was seminal. [​IMG] ok well at least it was very visual. it's one of those cultural reference points. i saw a spoof of the bike scene on the simpsons, which was funny. there are so many bad movies out there. bedknobs and broomsticks? any of the 'herbie the love bug' movies barbarella i have blocked most of the bad ones out of my mind, so i can't recall any more right now.

    i liked barbarella.

    i loved lost in translaion. if it doesn't speak to you, fine, but no way can you honestly believe it's one of the worst of all time.

    i don't know how you guys watch all these bad movies. can't you tell they're bad from the commercials and previews?

    i especially don't understand how someone can watch a movie from beginning to end, then say it was awful. if it was so awful, why did you keep watching it? i walk out of movies all the time. the 3 where i walked out the fastest were armageddon, bride of chucky, and romeo & juliet with claire danes.

    I have to imagine the Dukes of Hazzard remake with Stiffler and Johnny Knoxville will be ranking up there. I don't think Jessica Simpson as Daisy Duke can save this one.

    I have walked out of exactly 3 movies in my life. I'm just not the type to walk out. Plus - for a while, watching horrible movies was part of my job, and then, watching horrible movies was part of my hobby of collecting DVD's. I'm fascinated by them like some people are fascinated by car accidents. I want to know how a bad movie comes to be made in the first place. I'm not talking mediocre, I'm talking BAD. How many people must totally FAIL in their jobs for a truely horrific movie to make it into movie theaters and into the collective unconcious?

    'Lost in Translation' was great. One of the best of the year.

    The worst movie I saw in theaters was probably 'The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, and Her Lover'. I can't believe I sat through the whole thing.

    I think Charlie's Angels was the worst movie I've ever seen.

    And Lost in Translation is one of my favorites. I can't believe people would say it's the *worst*. If you didn't get into it for one reason or another... but calling it the worst is going way too far.

    Die Another Day. Because it probably cost over a hundred million dollars to make, and no-one bothered finding out if it was possible to drop a helicopter out of a moving cargo plane and get it flying in mid-air. Honorable mentions: Tomb Raider 2, Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions.

    a few have mentioned 'solaris'. i haven't seen the new one but it must be noted that it was based on an art film by the russian filmmaker tartovsky (i think that was his name, i'm not sure.) the original wasn't meant to be enjoyed by the masses, and though i don't know if the new tries to stay true to the original, i imagine it didn't since so many people didn't like it.

    the original solaris was about mental anguish and the style of the film was meant to impart some of that on the viewer.

    Boy am I glad to see the panning of 'Lost in Translation'. My wife and I almost walked out of that one but we stuck with it hoping it would get better. When it was over, we just looked at each other and said "Whay was that even made ?"

    Guess I'm not the artsy type.
