Can you name a movie worse than it other than maybe Immortel?

Fuck you guys, I said Freddy Got Fingered and I fucking meant it. Have you people seen this thing? Nothing else is in the running.*

*although you have to have the amendment that, when discussing "worst movie", you must limit yourself to major theatrical releases, or at least things that get wide DVD distribution. Trust me, there are indie flicks out there you've never even heard of that makes the movies discussed here look goddamn beautiful.

You really don't want to do that. I do not want to be sued for people stabbing their eye sockets out. I mean, it starts with it being bad in a funny way, and then just goes to depressing bad.

I saw it. It wasn't good but it wasn't an abomination of movie making either. It was Tom Green doing Tom Green style of humor. It is getting a cult following these days.

wikipedia wrote:The film was profitable. The movie's budget was $14,000,000, and it grossed $14,333,252 domestically in 59 days in North American cinemas, plus $24,300,000 during its stay on the top 50 weekly DVD rentals chart. Green has stated on a few interviews in 2010 that DVD sales have been growing many years later and that there was a cult following. Green has also stated that he would like to do a "Director's Cut" DVD release of the film in 2011 to celebrate the 10 year anniversary.

Twilight is by far the worst movie I've ever seen, luckily it was Riff Trax so I was able to laugh all the way through.

Yeah the RT for Twilight was hysterical. I laughed every time one of the dudes nervously cried out "Line?!" even though it went on for like half the movie. :lol:

Sadly even the New Moon RT wasn't enough to make that piece of shit watchable.

When I was a kid, fine. But watching one of my favourite physical comedians gurn it up like that... It's just painful. It's a subjective rather than objective.

*Bows*

I tried to watch Hardware recently. Lasted 35 minutes, nothing happened bar Lemmy and Iggy Pop, posted it back to Lovefilm. That might be the worst film I ever had recommended to me...

At least Eyes Wide Shut had Nicole Kidman boob to redeem it. Tim Burton's first Batman and Serenity do NOT belong on that list

Nemesis was shit upon a little too much by people. It wasn't great by any stretch of the imagination, but it wasn't horrible either. I think its fatal flaw was that it was overly ambitious and had a difficult time squeezing what should have been a season-long story arc down into one 2 hr film.

I must be the only person that liked what Ang Lee did with his version of The Hulk. I loved the character development and the story arc that they used for the early 300 issues of Hulk. So many hate on this movie and I do not understand why.

I thought Ang Lee's Hulk was great until the confusing ending. I still couldn't tell you what the hell happened the last 15 minutes or so of that thing.

Ones I can understand, to a degree:

*The Hulk (Eric Bana one) - it was a tad ropey. The again, is the Hulk really a great character for films? I'm just not sure you CAN make a Hulk film.
*Congo - monkey, gesture. The same gesture, for everything. Kinda lame.
*Evan Almighty - didn't like either in the series, TBH.
*Babylon AD - it was a tad disappointing. I didn't expect much, and so wasn't that peeved.
*Cloverfield - shakeycam. Annoyed me in Blair Witch, loved in this. Figure.
*Shakespeare in Love - if you were dragged along; if you went by choice, what were you expecting?
*Eyes Wide Shut - not 2001, which for some reason was one reason a lot of people I knew saw it...
*Spiderman 3 - it was worse than the previous 2. Still, they should have been indicators...
*Antz - sucked.
*Transformers 2 - still not seen, thanks to everyone I know saying OHGODAVOID.
*Star Trek: Nemesis - liked it meself, some didn't, Trek fans gonna Trek.
*Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland - like Transformers, I have been warned.
*Saw 5 - I didn't like the first, so...
*The Wedding Planner - as Shakespeare in Love.
*What Women Want - and again.
*Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind - some people I knew just found it too awkward and bizarre. It's one of my fave films...

So the one you omitted are the ones you can't understand? Two that jump out at me are Sideways and Burton's Batman. Sideways was simply not good. To be frank, there's nothing good about this movie. It wasn't funny, interesting, touching, dramatic, anything. It was just a "blah" movie. Others can love it and that's their thing, but I can't say I found any redeeming value in this movie. Batman should be obvious. This movie was retarded batshit crazy. Not nearly as much as Batman Returns, which was just plain fucking insane, but still. Some people can see the retarded batshit craziness as interesting stylized fun, but there are others that are just going to see it as stupid.
