Worst Movies You Ever Saw

Recommended Posts

What were the worst movies you ever saw? I'll start:

2001: A Space Odyssey  - Couldn't make it through the first 30 minutes of it

Eyes Wide Shut  - Just an awful movie

She's All That   -  A waste of time

It just occurred to me that 2 of the 3 films I posted above were Stanley Kubrick films. I think it's safe to say that I'm not a fan.

Any movie I see where my mind can't grasp the idea of the movie, and I can't sit still through the whole thing, or the movie stresses me the hell out ... those movies are the worst ones for me.

(The good ones are when I can sit and watch a movie without distraction (from MI)). 

The one worst movie I saw that stands out is Girl Interrupted, which I thought was "OK" until I watched it over and over again (almost obsessively) and in the end I actually felt like the main characters did (Winona Rider and Anjelina. Jolie) after watching that movie.  Same mannerisms of them and everything.  I know it was noticeable, at least to me, because my language went to hell, and I just wasn't the same person as before.  So I quit watching the movie cold turkey and eventually got it all out of my head and returned to myself.

If I can think of others I'll post.

Hmmm... 'ever' I don't know, but from last year that I  can remember right now:

Interstellar

Cake

Thelma and Louise 

The Wrestler

L'écume des jours

Blue is the warmest color

The Lobster

Taxi Driver

 

Fortunately, I somehow missed all of those.

There were at least 2 movies with the name "Bad Boys." The one from the 80s with Sean Penn wasn't too bad actually. Scent of a Woman was nothing to write home about but I wouldn't consider it the worst.

I just remembered another pretty terrible movie:

The Astronaut's Wife

This bad boy is the will smith one.

Alice in Wonderland is Tim Burton's version.

Scent of a Woman, because people would often recommend to me as great, 'so great'.

Even given hints like, Al Pacino acting was out of this world and blah.

When I saw it, everything was too familiar, no surprise, a bunch of vanilla going on an ordinary non-comteplative movie.

I didn't like the characters, the acting, the style of shooting and the storyline.

it wasn't involving so it could be shorter too.

I don't think bitterness and shouting out is hard to perform,

I like ordinary commonplace movies but it has to be well executed at least having a artistic appealing to it and I won't mind some vanilla, but that was unscented vanilla.

I don't know if this is a category of movie but if I would recomend something alike 'Scent of a Woman' I would rather go with  'The intouchables (2011)'.

Oh my gosh, how did I ever forget Lost in Translation? That was one horrible movie, I agree.

 

UT: I don't necessarily disagree with you on your criticism of Scent of a Woman, but given all that it still was much better than, say, Lost in Translation.

Unequivocally, the worst movie I have ever seen is Twin Peaks: Fire Walk With Me.

I like the unpretentious light-mood morbidity 'Lost in translation' have... and Tokyo and t's not like 'Scent of a Woman' that more than one person said to me that the movie is 'so great'. 

A girl said the movie was cool at the time, I remember being entertained by it.

On the Coppola subject:

Apocalipse Now and Godfather II and III are boring.

I liked the Apocalipse Now monologue at the end but I can't recall anything else.

Godfather I re-watched recently and I still have problems caring about it.

Those are not it the worst, but I think they are bad claimed movies.

I'd rather Sofia's Coppola ones lol.

 

One that I walked out of the theater:

Inception.

I thought getting out of the theater was 'a dick move' because I was saying to my sort of girlfriend at the time everything that was going to happen and how unoriginal everything was and I was getting the things right.

She met me some time latter and said she finished washing the movie and that was great.

So I gave it a try and,

Still awful.

      I was in san Bernardino awhile back w my boyfriend. And i just remember these noises at night throughout the city. Stuff like roaring/hissing, dogs barking, alarms, other stuff, but it sounded like it was being played on a SPEAKER. & the sounds were always the SAME so it wasnt very "lifelike" like the rawring wasnt frightening bc it was like prerecorded as well as other stuff. That place was crazy. We both were hearing this stuff at least describing the same thing, so wtf? Looking back it seems far fetched that the city would just "play sounds" over multiple speakers, i mean, for what reason?? But we both heard it MANY nights & it would stay on for a while. Whatu think?

      I dreamt there was a forum for mental health and the media but it was only a dream so I am putting this here.

      The film was written and directed by the loving daughter of a stay-at-home dad struggling with bipolar in the 70s. In my opinion it manages to be pro-diversity and neither romanticises nor demonizes mental illness. It doesn't really show the depression side of bipolar, but considering it is the memoir of one child in particular (and has that feel to it all the way through) I'm not sure it needs to. There's a really good review of it in Psychology today  https://www.psychologytoday.com/blog/me-we/201506/infinitely-polar-bear-rare-portrayal-bipolar-disorder

      I'd be interested to hear what people here thought of it.

      Spoiler alert, read this upside down text if, like many people, you prefer to only watch entertainment with happy endings: buıpuǝ ʎddɐɥ ɐ sɐɥ ʇı '

      So...
      We have a Wii.
      Hooked up to the Wii are the following: Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Youtube. 
      I have lists on these things but the majority of the time I still can't figure out what the heck to watch?
       
       
      I thought it might be fun/interesting/helpful/a time killer if we had a thread about current popular or notable stuff available to stream online/via services.
       
      I'm thinking it would be most helpful to say what the thing is, what service we got it through and if possible around when we knew it was available.
      Avoiding spoilers about plot would be good though.
       
      Also helpful: Did it suck? Was it great? Why, whynot?
       
      Obviously, it's the internet.
      Do whatever.
       
      So, one thing I have really enjoyed was Tin Man.
      It's a miniseries from SyFy with elements based on the basic story line of the story of Oz, etc. with the main characters from the classic novel [not really the famous Judy Garland flick].
       
      I found it really interesting and some of the stuff they did with the characters was unique, but Wizard of Oz it ain't.
       
      I watched it on Netflix numerous times, and it's been available there for a while, but I guess it is also available via amazon [NOT prime, though]- both as of this posting- 07.20.2014.
       
       
      VISUAL! TA*DA!
       

       
       
      Uh. I feeel like I missed something I actually said might be helpful. haha.
      I don't know, is this a good thread idea? i tried to find where someone already started one but couldn't...

      Hello everyone, I thought I'd start a thread to have us share our favorite past times.
       
      Have they changed since your MI?
       
      So what's your favorite past time today?

      As some of you have noticed, I am the mistress of Google-Fu. As it happens, I am a mutant, and Google-Fu is my special power. You see, just as Peter Parker was bitten by a radioactive spider, I was infected by a toxic dad who thought women were naturally stupid. His assertion led me to find proofs to refute his position. With the coming of the Internet my powers grew exponentially until I became a veritable ninja of tracking down amazing information.

      Since I am more like Wolverine and choose to use my powers for good, instead of being like Magneto and using my powers for evil, I have decided to share the fruits of my mystical powers with everyone. If you too are an X-Person of Google-ific proportions (or just have something you would like to share), please feel free to add to the thread and to spread word of its mighty power. Because the internet is so vast and there are so many distractions, it's easy to not be aware of how many free bits and pieces of info and knowledge are out there. Since may of us are afflicted with illnesses that make it difficult for us to spend a great deal of time around people, maybe it's best we compile a library o'stuff here for everyone, nu? Think of if this as a library for the clinically nuts.
