Worst film thread

#1

We don’t seem to have an general worst film thread, so this is it.

I was inspired to post this thread after seeing nearly all of He’s Just Not That Into You last night. It left me with some questions such as:

-How and why have I managed to watch so much of this?
-How does something this awful get made?
-How do the actors all deliver such awful lines with straight faces (or maybe it’s layers of irony and sarcasm… no, I’m sure it’s not)?

I guessed that it was made in the late 90s and that a lot of the actors were early in their career desperate to get into a film. I guessed wrong, because I googled to find out that it was made in 2009.

Baywatch

End of thread


#3

The second Matrix film. As I’ve said before, didn’t even bother with the third one despite the cliffhanger finish.


#4

I’ve normally got quite a high tolerance for bad films, in that I’ll usually see them through to the end, but I had to switch The Nice Guys off after about 45 minutes.


#5

I had no idea a Baywatch film existed.


#6

Probably that one with about 9 million replies that no one reads


#7

top 5 worst films I’ve seen at the cinema:

  1. King Kong (the jack black one)
  2. The Hulk (2003 version)
  3. Monsters
  4. Vantage Point
  5. Alice in Wonderland (the Tim Burton one)

#8

I love a good exploitation of ambiguity


#9

Worst one i’ve seen at the cinema was that Burke & Hare one by Simon Pegg. Horrendous.


#10

worst film I’ve ever seen the whole way through is ‘Click’. Even the poster for it makes it look as though even Sandler knows its shit and doesn’t give a fuck


#11

Absolutely this. I saw it the day it came out and I’ve still not seen the third one.


#12

But Baywatch has The Rock in? Does even that not redeem it?


#13

Solaris


#14

Actually quite enjoyed that! Liked the setting and thought Gosling/Crowe worked in the odd couple role.

Not a classic by any means but surprised to see it mentioned in a worst films thread.


#15

Keep it that way


#16

it’s one of those torture porn ones that came out early 2000s like Saw, but something with even less plot. I haven’t watched it, but it is.


#17

The Rock and Zac Efron. Actually had the potential to be very funny - but they went so far over the top with teenage boy smut jokes it was unbearable.

#19

Yeah, it probably doesn’t belong in a Worst Films Ever list, but can’t remember ever taking a dislike to a film more than that.


#20

OR ACTUALLY it might be scary movie or one of its infinite parody film successors
