Worst Movie of All time - Page 3

post #37 of 132
Anyone seen the recent film "the councillor"
Now that should have been a good film, all star cast, good director, but it sucked!
Too much crappy dialogue, I wasted 90 minutes of my life on that!

Agreed.  It had way too much praise for such a poor movie.  It was no Life Aquatic.

OK.  Imagine you are in a very bad mood.  Your wife says, "Let's watch this great comedy I have been hearing about."  You say, "OK".  I love funny movies and it could get me out of my funk.  The first scene a thug shoots a cop in the head a point blank range. Then he chases down two witnessed and shoots them on a frozen lake.  Kind of ruined the "comedy" part for me I guess.  I suppose I will watch it again to appreciate it more.

 

Plus, Fargo was missing one key element, "The Schwarts!"

I think the main problem with Pearl Harbor is that it could have been such a great movie if not for the fact that it was three hours long, had that weird love triangle. and 90% of the movie wasn't even about Pearl Harbor.

That is true. I would have like Pearl Harbor if it was done more in the Saving Private Ryan style. I didn't mind Pearl Harbor, it was average at best.

when you spell it that way, i get about 7 different cartoon bubble.  Most involve moving fart humor.

I'm not sure what I think of that.

 

6 of them are in Family Guy Cartoon mode

My timing is horrible but Fast and Furious 5 is the only movie I gave up on. I can sit through anything but that was horrible. My wife thinks "showgirls" is the worst movie of all time but I beg to differ. I want the blu Ray but haven't pulled the trigger just yet. I would probably have to hide it.

As for some of the movies mentioned above

I really enjoyed Juno
Life Aquatic was good
I love the entire Matrix trilogy. Reloaded was the weakest but still watchable for me
I dont know why but Blair Witch scared the S__t out of me. The sequal was reallllllly bad.
And I agree Battlefield Earth could very well be the worst movie ever made

If you want to pile on B Affleck, Gigli. 6% on the Tomatometer.

post #46 of 132

I've always kind of believed that the role Ben Affleck played in "Mall Rats" was probably pretty close to the real Ben Affleck. I have no supporting evidence, it's just my impression, he just seems like a major d-bag. 

 

Plus the whole "Bennifer" saga made me want to puke...

 

Life Aquatic was brilliant, loved the Portuguese David Bowie singer!

 

I've also come to terms with all the "Lost in Translation" hate, it makes perfect sense when you consider the love for Dan Brown, John Grisham that I see on here.:yucky:

I don't know why anybody bothers with Pearl Harbor anyway (I watched it once and don't remember enough about it to have a strong opinion about how bad it was) ... if you want to watch a good movie about Pearl Harbor, just watch Tora! Tora! Tora!.  This movie, along with The Longest Day, Patton, and especially The Bridge On The River Kwai, are really all you need if you want to binge on WWII movies.  (TBOTRK isn't just the best WWII movie ever, it is very, very near the top of the best of all movies of any genre, ever.)

Off the top of my head, I would also mention DownfallSchindler's ListSaving Private RyanDas Boot, and The Thin Red Line among the better WWII films.

Somehow, I've never even heard of this one.  I will check it out.

Ooh ... I forgot about this one.  I have not actually seen it, but I remember as a kid my parents having it in the same category as the ones I mentioned.  This is on my list as well.

 

P.S.  Two days in a row now ... we're talking about boots. :-P

This is funny because a co-worker of mine said the same thing AND I even own this movie (it came in a costco gift pack box set I got a few years ago with, Patton, Longest Day, and Tora x 3) but I never got around to watching it.  I will really have to get around to it one of these days.  Maybe tonight after I watch Despicable Me 2 for the 7th time in a week.

 

I'm also kind of ashamed to admit it, and I realize it's Vietnam, not WWII, but I still have never seen Apocalypse Now.

Downfall is the source of all the angry Hitler spoof videos like this one: 

 

 

Apocalyse Now is a great one. The Vietnam war has its fair share of great movies (Full Metal Jacket comes to mind).

Wow, I actually loved Lost in Translation, haven't seen it in a few years but have watched it a few times.

The closest I ever come to walking out of a theater was for the movie, "Seven Pounds" with Will Smith. That was just a horrible mess. The movie was all over the place. 

 

Oh, I would put Peter Jacksons' King Kong in that one as well. Not every movie needs to be 4 hours long.

 

Agree Fargo was really good and King Kong sucked.  Some good effects but not a great story.

My son reminded me of another horrible movie, Red Dawn.  The original was God awful bad.  He said the remake was worse.

 

Add Where Eagles Dare, to the list of good WWII movies too.

I guess it was just too slow and melancholy for me.   Like I said I usually like these movies.

I have said this before, but growing up in MN I am ashamed to say I have not seen it.  :8)

IMHO, the greatest WWII movie never played in the theaters, at least in wide release, and it's Band of Brothers.

Das Boot is excellent, have seen it many times. Recently saw another good sub movie, The Enemy Below, which really gives you insight into tactics and strategy from both the destroyer and submarine povs.

Patton is another of my favorites along with Saving Private Ryan. We have to get him, the hell, out of there. Are you going to send her another folded American flag?
