Such a concept is not an entertaining one, and not everything is funny just because it's some sort of ironic rip on reality.
Look, the voices used in this film caused me physical pain, which was compounded by the hideous boredom. I would have walked out after twenty minutes if I hadn't been on a date with someone who didn't want to leave. Had I known how torturous it would become, I would have left anyway, and just sat in the lobby. I hate this movie. Its appeal will forever baffle me.

Back when I lived in Twin Falls Idaho, "downtown" was a cluster of business buildings about a block long.

We did have schools though.

Huh. Well, I don't know then. I always thought it was funny because it spoke to my life experience, the utter boredom of a rural town and always trying to find something to do.

Maybe it's because your town was even more extreme, maybe it hit too close to home? Like maybe you have friends or family who still live there, and you feel sorry for them. I could imagine that being painful. Napoleon Dynamite does riff on some kinda depressing themes, like people being stuck in a nowheresville with little chance of going to college or personal advancement, and they have this ridiculous popularity hierarchy at school when it doesn't matter at all.

May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.


Xanadu was horrific. Highlander 2 (or "The Film That Shall Not be Named") I prefer to forget ever happened or to merely think of as a bad dream brought about by a dinner of bad shellfish.

Have to say "Howard the Duck" was the worst film I have ever seen. Not one redeeming quality to that waste of film.

At least it was well shot. Highlander 5 (The Source) makes 2 look like a masterpiece. Man, that POS is terrible.

No, it's not the old family homestead or something. I just don't think something that sucks that hard is movie fodder. Reflecting and exaggerating the dullness of life to the point where actors don't change facial expressions and speak in grating monotone? Not entertaining.

Ill agree wholeheartedly that it was the wrost of the series. Maybe even from an emotional standpoint, I could agree its the biggest filmgoing dissapointment ive had. But objectively, I still find it a better constructed film overall than dreck like Transformers 2 (I skipped 3) or more recently, Green Lantern.

Ah. See, that's part of what I thought was good about it. They took that theme of dull small-town-ness and applied it to everything. I felt it was artistic and fitting, and it was so exaggerated it added an element of the ridiculous and surreal to everything about the movie.

Ignore Jar Jar, the pod races, and the accidental space station destruction thing in Episode one, and it's watchable.

There's probably an edit out there somewhere that tones down the problem parts, and I bet that'd be pretty good.

The kid playing Anakin did a decent job all considering (better than Hayden anyway I think), but I also think it couldn't have hurt to get an older actor to play the same part all three movies. And it would have been fun to see an older Anakin intentionally sneak out on a fighter and take out the space station, instead of the comedy sequence we got for that. But that's somewhat more difficult to just edit in.

I skipped both Transformers 2 and 3. So, I can't comment on those. Transformers 1 was bad enough, but still not to the level of Episode I. As for Green Lantern I didn't think it was nearly as bad as the reviewers claim. It was a standard super hero movie.

The Lost Tribe is the worst. www.imdb.com/title/tt0811124/

It is because of Firefly that this is my worst movie. The Lost Tribe is a remake of Jewel Staite's The Forgotten Ones www.imdb.com/title/tt1308169/

The producer of both these movies, Mohit Ramchandani www.imdb.com/name/nm1186058/ was so proud of his concept of shipwreck survivors running from man-eating troglodytes that he made the movie twice.

What was Ramchandani thinking? No one knows, but he did complain when Jewel Staite wouldn't break her contract with Stargate Atlantis and return to work for him at reduced salary on movie version 2.0. So he showed Jewel who was boss and recast her part. Ramchandani was rumored to have announced his executive decision: “Jewel, now everyone is fired except for the guys in the monkey costumes!” (He was referring to the stuntmen.)

Yes, I did understand that. I was stating why I disagree. Making a deliberately sucky movie about something that sucks isn't clever, and it isn't funny. For example, a film that tried to make a point about social isolation by having all the dialogue in it be, "Uuhhhhhhhhh... uhhhhh... uhhhhhh." would not be entertaining on any level. There are better ways to do that sort of thing than deliberate suck-ness.

I stand by my stance that Napolean Dynamite is the worst film I've ever seen. My second vote would probably go to Jonah Hex (which I did walk out of, having learned my lesson.)

Well, I dunno, there's these whole tropes about Kafka Comedy and Stylistic Suck, and works made using one or both can be pretty entertaining. But it depends on the person. Someone else might find such a movie offensive, depressing, or annoying.

Okay. Questions:

Was that Bond girl Tanya Roberts riding an actual zebra?

Xanadu looks so cheesy it almost makes me want to see it. Almost. What's holding me back is the previewer is clearly avoiding showing me any of the actual film. Still, it can't possibly be as atrocious as "Fame."

Oh, the Henderson monster isn't entertainly bad, it's just really truly unbearably boring. Take the seventies contemplative nothingness movie and square it. Another good example is "Q: The Winged Serpent" but Q is actually mildly entertaining because there is an actual dragon, and the characters have a whimpering pansyfest argument about whether or not to fight it as it eats the characters. Alas, it's the 70s, and the monster is both cheesy and pricy, and so gets mercifully little screentime.

I used to read Howard the Duck comics as a kid. Of course, like everything, the movie was a disappointment. I have yet to see the bound-to-disappoint tintin, which I was fonder of as a kid. Still, howard is decent cheesy 80s fare. Which reminds me, did I mention in the B-movies thread, one I adore: Earth Girls are Easy.

I've actually seen all of these except Xanadu, Twilight and Galaxy of the Dinsosaurs.

Speaking of which: Among "Movies that don't live up to their titles," the troma team, in particular "nymphoid barbarian in dinosaur hell" and "teenage catgirls in heat." Even "cannibal amazons in the avacado jungle of death," which does much better, I don't think the amazons themselves are ever actually cannibals.

Twilight actually looks halfway decent, if mockable. it's got a cool theme. Speaking of mocking, have y'all seen the Taylor Swift NSL skit "Firelight" ? I was unable to get it but I got this nifty STOP SOPA effect
http://www.snotr.com/video/3316/SNL_Digital_Short_-_Firelight
It wasn't here either
http://vodpod.com/watch/2545043-firelight-with-taylor-swift-on-snl

Anyway, I can see that Galaxy of the Dinosaurs would be worse in a different way, but of the ones I've seen in these videos, I think the worst was Speed 2 by a healthy margin.

Oh, I also haven't seen Napoleon Dynamite. Looks worse. Has the look of a story of a kid who is picked on as written by the person picking on him.

No, I wouldn't say that. The movie is pretty fair in distributing the amount of fail. Yeah, there's bullies, but they come off as mostly pathetic. Napoleon himself is merely a dork, and actually wins out over the bullies in the end. I guess it's more Kafka-lite than a straight Kafka comedy, it's got a surprisingly optimistic steak in it despite the setting and the themes.

The thing about Napoleon Dynamite was that it made no sense. Dead end charactors in a dead end town and then he dances at the end. I think my dislike of it was heightened by the fact that it was so popular. If it hadn't been then I still would have thought it was lame, just not as lame.

So there were Howard the Duck comics? Bizarre. DT a chara, I bet you haven't seen Afghan Knights, if you do you will no doubt add it to your worst movie list. Of course my hatred of it was partly because of the summary sounding all good and Genghisful and then the movie sucked and they didn't time travel and I was pissed off.

Yeah, I frequent tvtropes, too. Stylistic Suck is a trope applied specifically to shows within a show, often for the purpose of making sure the main event doesn't look worse when compared to what its characters are watching. A good example (though I know you didn't personally watch Angel) would be the sitcom Cordelia was shown acting on during one arc of Angel, which featured ludicrous plots and poorly written dialogue. It was vaguely amusing in context, but not anything I would want to watch a full episode of. As shows within shows, Stylistic Suck is often done in very small doses, and so it rarely reaches the point of eye-gouging-ness, because it's just briefly played for laughs. If Napolean Dynamite had shown semi-interesting characters in a boring small town sitting around and watching the teeth-grinding dullness of the actual film and saying something like, "Wow, is that how we seem to people?" that could have been funny Stylistic Suck.
Kafka Komedy is about everything going terribly wrong, not everything being terribly dull. I don't tend to find Kafka Komedy all that funny, because I get tired of things going wrong and characters being villainized for no good reason, but it can least be dynamic and entertaining. This trope does not apply to Napolean Dynamite because things don't go horribly wrong due to the good intentions of the characters. In fact, there's not a whole lot of things going horribly wrong because not a lot happens in general.
You might be thinking of "So Bad, It's Good," but my impression of that is of things that are so hammily overacted they become hilarious, or special effects so fake-looking they're funny, or plots so ludicrous they're laughable. I rarely find such things entertaining, personally, but sometimes the over-the-top nature of someone's Ham And Cheese will amuse me. Also, "So Bad, It's Good" seems to be categorized as an entirely unintentional trope, much like Narm.

Hmm, I guess I thought stylistic suck was more just doing intentionally something bad for the laughs, not that it absolutely had to be a show within a show. But I guess the tvtropes page does say otherwise.

Kafka Comedy was the closest approximation I could find to the fail, but maybe what I'm really looking for is The Comically Serious, or So Unfunny It's Funny.

Anyway, who knows. It's one of those movies that appeals to some people but not others. I still postulate that that growing up in Backwardsville USA has a large impact on whether someone will like it or not.Also possibility familiarity with Mormon culture, which contributes to backwardness.

I saw Highlander the Source on TV when it premiered on syfy, because I really enjoy Highlander stuff so I was excited, quite disappointing. Never saw Despero, it looked vaguely cute in the previews but my little brother doesn't really like movies that much, getting him to sit through one is a challenge, so there are lots of kids movies that you'd think I would have seen because of his presence in my life but I haven't.

Okay, so my dad saved Galexy of the Dinosaurs for me to watch this weekend. And I loved watching it, so I can't call it the worst movie I've ever seen because it was way too much fun.

Wait, wait. I know which is the worst movie I've ever seen. "Uncle Eddie's Island Adventure."

Don't look it up. Just don't. On a scale from -5 to +5, where the higher it goes it's entertaining for the right reasons, and the lower it goes it's entertaining for the wrong reasons, that one is a perfect zero of not entertaining at all.

I read badfic for fun. I've seen The Star Wars Holiday Special and thought it was weird and awkward but watchable. But I couldn't take more than ten minutes of this made for TV garbage fest.

Hands-down, No-contest.

Cloverfield
Seriously, watching a bunch of vapid, shallow, clueless little cretins whom I thorougly despised from the moment of their introduction run around like headless chickens for some contrived reason in a city being supposedly wrecked by an unseen monster who at no time ever seems to present a credible threat to anyone with half a lick of sense... and being forced to watch this abominable offense against nature via some halfassed shaky-cam supposed to imitate the effects of a cheap handheld and failing badly ?

It was an endless, bottomless abyss of suck so vile it drained the life from the whole monster movie genre for ages to come, and made the slimy drivel which pours sideways from the corroded mush between Uwe Bolls ears look like masterpiece theatre by comparison.

The General's Daughter, 1999, truly sucked so bad, I'd blotted it out
of my mind.

There Will Be Blood, 2007, won 2 Oscars! It's good if you enjoy greedy,
hateful characters and being depressed. I just want my 3 hours back.

Ralph Bakshi's animated The Lord of the Rings, 1978, was an insult:

America loves a winner!


There's a lot that can go into making a really bad movie.

Ridiculous plot, bad acting, pathetic writing, cheesy sets and wardrobe... so it's tough to sort out from all the suckiness in movies I've seen to find which is the WORST.

I mean, some movies TRY to be bad, to inflate their camp value, so I hesitate to add those to the list of other movies which were being SERIOUS in their effort.

Clearly , Howard the Duck is horrific.

Halloween 3, made NO sense, what so ever. 'Michael' played no part in it, as I recall, and the story was about some evil scientist ?

Strange Brew - Now, I LOVED the McKenzie brothers, Bob and Doug, but man... what a horrific movie. And even as bad as it was, there were moments which were kinda funny. Well, funnier to the younger version of myself than they are today.

OK, I'm stuck in the 80's. I'm gonna need to think about this and get back to the thread.

True that - but it did have one redeeming quality.
An exquisite soundtrack that due to licensing issues has been nigh unto impossible to find - and get this, for reasons inexplicable to me at one time they cranked out a cleaned up Blu-Ray version of it, which I got from the bargain bin of a third line reseller for about six bucks, JUST so I could cadge a high quality version of the soundtrack.

DERP! - yer right, got em confused cause they're right next to each other on the shelf, meh.
Which means Bakshi's product does in fact, have no redeeming qualities at all.

America loves a winner!


Generally not a fan of Rankin Bass animation. But Bakshi's version of LOTR... man, that was a weird combo of animation and real life overlayed w/ more animation. I guess it worked, here and there, but over all... bleh.

We carry in our hearts the true country, and that cannot be stolen.


I agree with Chrisisall that 'Zardoz' is a masterpeice. It just needs a couple of viewings to be fully appreciated. Charlotte Rampling was so damn intense in it that most else doesn't really matter anyhow.

I usually like even bad movies the second time I see them. I've recently seen on HBO 'Another Earth', 'In Time', and 'Cowboys and Aliens'. Couldn't stand any of them at first, but have since found them to be not bad in their own ways. Next time they're on I'll probably love 'em.

Quest for Fire. 1982
For about 5 years after I saw it, "Quest for Fire" was the movie I
loved to hate. Urbanites would often gush, "O! It was so great! So
authentic!" Maybe that was the thing I hated about it. My subtitle
for it was, "The Three Stooges Looking for a Zippo."

Now I read that it was a comedy, intended as a comedy! That's prolly
true, and so, it becomes a comedy I love to hate.
.......

I didn't see the following but stole them from YouTube, "The 50
Worst Movies Ever Made."

Firebird, 2015 A.D., 1981
Galaxy of Terror, 1981
Smokey and the Bandit Part 3, 1983
Troll, 1986
Leonard Part 6, 1987

Battlefield Earth is unique in my experience in that it goes from being just plain bad, to so bad it's freakin' hilarious, all the way back to so bad I want to forget. The movie's like huffing glue. Although, the spectacle of John Travolta doing what he obviously thinks is staggeringly awesome acting never gets old.


He's out Nick Caging Nick Cage!

For me it's the remake of: Drum roll please........................

Miracle on 34th Street (1994) what drek!!!!!!

From my past:

The Passenger (with Jack Nicholson and Maria Schneider, 1975). I fell asleep during the first half of this movie and left before it finished. I never thought of asking for a refund. It was supposed to be like Last Tango in Paris, but it was unwatchable. No chemistry between the 2 lead actors and the pacing was non-existent. Nicholson must have lost a bet.

S. Darko

A perfect example uv an exploitation movie. 'Donnie Darko iz popular, so lets cash in on the name!'

They attempt to fool the audience that its inspired, deep and thought provoking like Donnie Darko with disjointed scenes and odd acting, but anybody with more than haf a brain will realize that its just turdz uv pointless nonsense floating in a lame attempt to imitate the atmosfere uv Donnie Darko.

ETA: I love Highlander 1 3 and 4, there can be only one! But Highlander 2 and Highlander the Source were awful, especially The Source, it had no redeeming qualities aside from that it had Duncan in it.

Never seen "Napoleon Dynamite" and don't plan too.

I agree with you on Highlander 1,3,4. Highlander 2 makes no sense what so ever and I haven't seen the Source yet. I heard Christopher Lambert talking about the films once and even he said that 2 never should have been made.
