    I thought the worst movie made was...

    I thought the worst (big budget) movie made was Mission Impossible II (which was just pathetic), but I just saw Hollow Man on cable and OMG, if I can save but one person from wasting their time, I will have accomplished something. I didn't think it would be the best movie ever, but I thought it might at least have some redeeming qualities. I missed this one at the theater (good thing, as if I had paid $8 to see this, I would have asked for my money back).

    I didn't like it much, but I've seen worse
    Movies are so damn expensive, at clemson(college) they have 1 dollar movies, at home its 8 bucks, then you spend 10 more on popcorn and a coke!

    Scary movie 2 sucked pretty bad, don't waste your time with it .

    One of the worst: Dude, where's my car?

    I haven't seen it and even if someone gave me the video free I would not watch it.


    MI2 wasn't the worst, but then it wasn't that good either.

    Freddie Got Fingered was the worst. The actors, produces and directors of that film should all be locked up in a madhouse. Thankfully my friend worked at the movies and I got in for free.

    They must have thought it was too short and decided to add that 30 minute fist fight scene on the beach. If they would have actually done some editing before they released it, then maybe it would have been OK.

    The money you spend at the theaters these days (roughly $30 for 2 people, with snacks) you can go to Wal-Mart and buy at least 2 DVDs for that price and watch them at home.

    Or just download the movie off of gnotella ( www.gnotella.com ) for free and watch it, though the japanese translation at the bottom can get annoying.

    Not that I do that! Sheesh

    Pootie Tang was the worst movie I've even seen (rented it). Luckily, it bombed in the theatres, so not many were exposed to its crappiness.

    I didn't think MI2 was THAT bad, but compared to the first MI it was terrible.

    I sorta liked MI2, but Freddie Got Fingered, OMG We turned that off within 5 minutes of starting it


    Jurassic Park 3 is pretty great on a 63" with DTS surround sound

    Scary Movie 2 wasnt that funny at all, we got more laughs out of Evolution which was pretty good

    What's that fairly new one with Mariah Carey in it? Apparently it cost 20 million to make, and only took in 4 million at the box office or something like that. It seems to be at the top of the 2001 dud list of most critics I've heard.

    Er...well, in that case, how do you know it's one of the worst?
    Not that I mean to side with the director of 'Dude...' but still, what's your point? You haven't seen it, so you don't think anything about it right?

    hmmmm I actually though Dude Where's my Car was kinda funny. Although the people in the bubble suits, was just stupid. I don't know if the director thought that it was funny or what. While we're on the topic of stupid things that are on TV, check out http://www.parentstv.org/. grrr those people annoy so much, trying to take the freedom out of american television.

    oh yeah, another crappy movie was driven. I thought it sucked so much, and all of the scenarios*(sp?) were so fake. It was a waste of time...

    I hate all unfunny comedies. You know what I'm talking about.
    • All Disney Movies
    • Any movie starring, featuring, or including Tim Allen in any role
    • Any comedy which claims to be "family"
    • Any comedy involving a rapper
    • Airplane 2. Okay, it wasn't all that bad, but it contained 75% recycled jokes

    At least, in reviews. In money loss, it's nowhere near Town & Country. Link! That's not good. It's another "winner" from New Line.

    Hey, at least all of those you've named have made (or attempted to make) some sort of sense. The worst movie ever made? I know what it is, hands down:

    Liquid Sky

    Not to be confused with "Vanilla Sky" which I've heard also stinks to high heaven, but it isn't even in the same class with "Liquid Sky" no matter how bad it is.

    I went with my brother to see "Liquid Sky" at a midnight showing when it first came out after the newspaper praised it. The theatre was, literally, standing room only. We only stayed until the end because we KNEW it had to get better -- but alas, it didn't.

    There was a GIGANTIC line for refunds after the show.

    I thought The Mummy Returns was pretty disappointing.

    The Mummy Returns was okay to me. That is just my opinion...

    I don't really HATE any movies. I enjoy watching movies. The only that would be bad would be a movie with A VERY BAD PERSON.

    I didn't think that "Hollow Man" was that bad. And the punchline for the super man joke was all wrong.

    Anyway, MI2 was better than the first one.

    I don't see that many terrible movies because usually I can tell if I want to see a movie by the previews or word of mouth. I don't waste my time on them.

    One movie that really disappointed me was "sixth sense". Everyone told me that it was really good. So I kept waiting for the really good to start, but it never did.

    I expected the same from "unbroken", and wasn't as disappointed at the incredibly slow pacing of the movie just to lead up to a twist ending.

    IMHO.

    Was it the bad acting by all of the cast that impressed you?
    Or was it the fact that they were all 'trapped' at one point due to the elevator, then at the end they just went up the ceiling panel?
    Was it that every character made obvious 'come and kill me' moves?
    For me I liked how everyone lined up to die during a 5 minute period.
    I also thought it was brilliant how Kevin Bacon didn't die from the first head blow with the tire iron, nor multiple beatings, the flame thrower, and <skip to end> didn't die during the entire lab explosion, and managed to climb up the buring elevator shaft to grab her leg, and how the last two characters survived the intense heat of flames yipping at their bodies in the elevator shaft.

    I could go on, but it is one thing for the monster to survive everything and still come back over and over (though I could have sworn *that's* been done a couple of times already), but another for the main characters to be super human as well and be able to survive intense burning heat and falling elevators, etc.

    It was just an insult and I would have requested my name be left off the credits if I had anything to do with th emaking of it. Sad thing is, that I was going for a digital production job at a place that did most of the effects.

    Effects alone, not a good movie makes.

    You guys are ALL wrong!!

    I rented this movie from BlockBuster called "Startup.com" - LOL! I expected it to be corny..but not as corny as it really was. The picture was so bad..it was so jumpy and the sound was "echoey" - I think they did it on a regular video camera.

    These guys start up a company (which I have no idea what it actually did..seriously) they hire like 600 employees then it goes down and down until they go out of business. THat's IT - no story line..and they talked like "oh man! we have to hire more people..we're growing so fast" - yet..I had no idea what the company actually was.

    If you want to see a terriable movie..rent it

    You do realize that "Startup.com" is a reality film about a real company, right? All that really took place, and involves a company called GovWorks that I actually had some dealings with. None of it is acted or actors.

    Chicken,

    I admit that "hollow man" was very cliche. The characters did stupid things because it was in the script. But it's what i was expecting, to be lightly entertained for two hours. I know, I'm too easily entertained, and expect too little.

    BTW: You can't expect good acting in a movie where the top billed actor is kevin bacon.

    Anyway, I still say that it wasn't "that bad". Was it good? Would I recommend it? Probably not. But I didn't hate it. I definitely agree with every one of the flaws you pointed out. Keep the reviews coming.

    It has unfortunately been a very long time since I've seen a really good movie that did more than just entertain me for two hours. What's up with screenwriters? A lot of these movies actually start out based on a good book. Then they add lots of cliche fluff and take out the good parts. Aargh.

    What action movie for instance doesn't have a chase scene in it? They're just all trying to get creative with their one mandatory chase scene, required by the action movie guild. They've done everything from cars, to helicopters, to shopping carts.

    Kevin Bacon... mmmm bacon....

    Yeah, this pretty much tells ya' it's going to be a loser, eh? Have you seen The Patriot? Are you American? I forgot to check your IP before making this post. DOH! I don't usually go for the Mel Gibson movies but this one was good (probably only if you're an American though). A few bloody scenes which could have been toned down a bit (my my my I sound old), but good, very good.

    Perl Harbour was a real drag/
    My father got these special passes for this movie and he gave it to me and my wife.
    We thought it would be good. But OH... my god... (read it the way Joey says it in Friends)
    It was a real killer. Just tried to get the Titanic emotions back but failed ....

    Have a great day

    You guys want a REALLY REALLY horrible movie?

    Try Hackers, starring Angelina Jolie. Man that thing was BAAAAD. It's worse than MI2, worse than Freddy Got Fingered, worse than eating dog poo.

    And not to mention the serious factual errors in "Hollow Man". Just in case you didn't know, not only would Kevin Bacon have been totally BLIND when made invisible, you'd actually be able to see him because you'd be staring at a big, human-shaped mass of dead skin cells walking around.

    Still, the worst movie is "Liquid Sky" and it isn't even close...
