I admit it's that "special kind of bad". :D

Lots of British nips, an embarrassed Sean Connery and a soapy shower scene, that's about all I really remember.

Easy Rider. There, I said it. Now they're going to take away my aging hippie credentials. But, really, that ending sucked a**.

Same with Alice's Restaurant (Although I LOVE the song).

True story: when I registered for the draft, a buddy and I actually did walk in, holding hands, singing Alice's Restaurant. They had no idea what it was all about. Oh, well. The draft ended a few months later, anyway.

The Supernaturals
It's about the ghosts of American Civil War soldiers and had the woman who played Uhhura(?) from the original Star Trek.
At 19 years old I thought it was a borderline half decent horror movie. Then I watched it 10 years later and it was a boring stupid hunk of shit.
The Book of Love has music in it,
In fact that's where music comes from,
Some of it's just transcendental,
Some of it is really dumb.

Grammaton is still trying to figure out why Jet Li did not speak English. . . .

On the Waterfront--perhaps should go in the other thread, but I have been forced to watch it more than once and I realize what an overrated actor Marlon was. This is perhaps one of the most overrated movies ever.

The Indiana Jones Sequels--so, why are those crocks cartoon . . . and . . . this is a knee slapper! HITLER gives him an autograph!! What a gas. . . .

The Princess Bride

War of the Worlds--I begged to see this--having read what a "great film" it was--only to realize that George Pal really, really sucks!

Silence of the Lambs--ZZZZzzzzzzZZzzzz . . . Oooo! I have a SCARY LIGHT installed in the cell that shines up my face!!!!

Guess what?! He ESCAPES!!! Bet you did not see that coming. . . .

Worst. Movie. EVER.

I have one thing to say to all of you: "The Lonely Lady" starring Pia Zadora. Never heard of it? There's a reason: None of the actors in that movie (Ray Liotta, for one) even include it on their resumes!

Oh really? Not that I'm defending it, but I think you can do much worse:

Those are some "choice" picks, from here:

I HATE the Super Mario Brothers movie.
Sorry, I've seen three of those movies and none are as bad as Armageddon.

When that astronaut, with a straight face no less, said that Steve Buscemi had "Space Madness" I nearly walked out. That and the countdown numbers sounding like they were exploding. I could go on and on.






(Super Mario, Manos Hands of Fate, and Sorority Babes at the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama. I know you were wondering.)
