Red face Bad movies!

Well I am bored, so I thought I would start this thread. Which movies are some of the worst you have seen??

I have a few, the first being the brady bunch movie. With quotes like
"hehehehe OH alice"
"marsha did it again, marsha, marsha, marsha"
"Well hey there groovy chick, your really happening in a far out way"
"oh mike, when! oh mike, how! Oh mike, why!"
Spose its funny in a way, that it payes out on the brady bunch.

Another bad movie was a friday the 13th I saw. I don't remember which one it was, cause it was a while ago. Basically the first half of the movie, I thought they were doing a send up of a really, really bad horror movie. Then I realised they weren't. The typical chick tripping over, the group all splitting up and bad movie effects.

Also Playing John Malcovich, was just plain weird, I didn't get it at all.

Loved the first blair witch, the second though, uh, wasn't the best.

Well feel free to ad any movies you thought were really bad.

Dan.

Well "Scary Movie" was pretty awful I think. The latest bond movie was ridiculous to say the least. But I seem to remember more good movies than bad ones. Some of the good ones I have seen recently are

The Transporter - dont miss this
Snatch
Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels
Shawshank Redemption
Mulholland Drive
Femme Fatale

I think the worst movie I ever saw was this Bruce Willis western. I can't even remember what it was called. I read a review somewhere where someone actually liked it! (well sorry if there's anyone on this forum that liked that movie, but in my book it was the worst.)

Beside all the typical good ones that everyone likes (Star Wars, LOTR, etc.), one of the funniest ones I saw was Sandra Bullock's "Miss Congeniality". She's fast become one of my favorite actresses. I also heard "My Big Fat Greek Wedding" was hysterical. I haven't seen it but want to.

I thought Starship Troopers, Pearl Harbor and Daredevil were real bad. Ben Affleck was beyond bad.

Ben Affleck is always bad because...well, he always plays Ben Affleck. IMO he hasn't done anything decent since "Chasing Amy" and I can barely remember him in anything before that.

It's a little difficult to list what i think are the worst movies of all time, I've seen so many and I tend to, (thankfully), forget most of them. There are a couple though that stick in my mind as being particularly bad, mostly because I like good science fiction and these were particularly bad examples.

Battlestar Galactica. From the 70s or 80s, can't remember exactly, but it was bad!

Black Hole. A Disney effort at sci fi. Horrible is about the best thing I can say about it.

Independence Day. This one would have to come close to the worst movie of all time I think. I can only assume it was made by a bunch of not too bright 10 year olds and accidentally released.

"Solaris", recently shot by Soderbergh is the worst piece of crap I have seen for the last couple of years. Especially in comparison with Stanislaw Lem's fantastic novel (1961) and great film by Andrei Tarkovsky (1972).

I loved it!!!! ;-)

They're actually doing a remake, but either Starbucks or Apollo, one of the two is going to be a girl.

Yeah, I agree.

Maybe even worse was the one with Bruce Willis where he had to save the world from an asteropid impact - what was it called? Can't remember.

In Britain it was advertised as "A new kind of war".  From that I knew it was [email protected], since one of Heinlein's points is that it's the same kind of war as always — them or us, fight or die...

I didn't know they'd made another version. Thanks for the warning, I'd hate to have my memory of the first one spoiled by seeing some trashy remake.

I wonder why people think they can take a great movie and make it better, it very very rarely ever happens.

It's also interesting that some of the really great sci fi movies were made decades ago. Sure, technically they may look a bit silly now but the ideas some of them had were way beyond their time. For example, have a look at Metropolis and Forbidden Planet.
