Worst Movies Of All Time
RiffTrax ^

Posted on 12/28/2012 9:50:24 PM PST by chessplayer

The stars and writers of Mystery Science Theater 3000 have carried our bad movie passion/fixation/incurable mental condition forward at RiffTrax.com. You spend enough time with bad movies, you’re gonna wind up arguing over which ones are truly the worst. Rather than fight it out tooth-and-nail among ourselves, risking possible tooth injury or even nail damage, we put the question to our fans. A record-setting 500,000 votes later, we’ve got the list. RiffTrax's first annual Worst Movies of All Time list. This is it. No more fighting. Because nobody fights about lists on the internet, right? Right??

2012: Ice Age is the worst I've ever seen. Easily the worst. It was on the SciFi Channel. Makes Plan Nine From Outer Space look like a masterpiece.

The Happening.

Blond bad. Beyond tasteless. Beyond bad acting, bad screenplay, bad, bad, bad.

Because it was by shalimon (sp?) I kept waiting for the twist.

Through the whole horrid movie, I kept waiting for the twist. That wretched, liberal, stupid, stupid, bad acting, bad plot, idiotic concept, I kept thinking, a point would arise, that, dang, there would be something I never imagined.

I never imagined that it was just THE WORST MOVIE EVER!

LOL

The Blair Witch Project!

I was so angry about it, I went up to the ticket booth and asked for my money back. Worst. Stupidest. Movie. Ever. I walked out feeling like I was completely duped by the trailors.

An Officer and a Gentleman was really really awful. It think it was the other factory workers clapping as he carried her out of the factory where she worked that put this one over the top or maybe that is under the bottom.

When a movie is so bad it is fun, that, IMO, does not make the OP list.

Like the original “Attack on Precinct Thirteen” it was so bad, that it was actually good. It had the redeeming quality of intent to take itself seriously.

The hubby and I, when the occasion calls for it, still repeat the line of the doomed little girl at the ice cream truck “Hey! this isn’t Vanilla Twist!”

In my book, that is a good bad movie.

The only movie that has ever made me want to kill myself was ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’, being forced to watch most of it was a horror, thank God people from out of town showed up before it ended.

Battlefield Earth is a fun ‘bad movie’ to watch, it is a beer and buddies type bad movie, they just had no idea what they were creating and are sooo serious.

I’m trying to convince my hubby to watch ‘Santa Claus conquers the Martians’. It sounds so bad, it just might be good.

Obviously a younger crowd.

Who can forget

“Attack of the Killer Tomatoes”...

Another example of so bad it was ‘good’...

If not mistaken, believe at the ending after the Killer Tomatoes were made into juice, it show the ice box and the rest of the vegetables were stirring...obviously leaving an open for a sequel or 10.

The only thing I ever knew about that movie was its theme song with the refrain “Hooray for Santy Claus“ (they pronounced it “Santy” even after spelling it “S-A-N-T-A” in the song).

I agree that when a movie is really bad, it can be fun. Some of the Kung Fu movies I have watched fit into that category exactly. Can’t remember the names, though they were really bad. :)

At least it is a little bit fun to laugh about it in hindsight.

It really is funny to see how hard lefties try at promoting their little pet doomsday scenarios.

I fear that I will never be able to take Marky Mark Whalberg seriously again though.

“Sunrise at Campobello” (1960) I’m probably one of the few people in this country—and perhaps the only one on FR—to have watched this turkey from beginning to end.

The three worst (at least in the last 20 years) that come to mind for me are:
1. King Kong (the Peter Jackson debacle)
2. The American (George Clooney)
3. Sahara (Matthew McConaughey)
4. The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (Sean Connery)

A movie has to be absolutely horrendous, downright sickening, for me to shut it down after I’ve already wasted an hour or more. I was not able to finish any of the above.

“Tarzan and Jane” with Bo Derek, from around 1984. My wife and I saw it in a theater in Santa Barbara when we were first married, and it was so bad the audience started heckling it, then throwing things at the screen, then pretty much walking out en masse. Never saw a reaction like that to ANY movie, before or since.

My guilty pleasure is ‘Desperately Seeking Susan’.
I watch that movie at least once a year.
(shrug)
Can’t explain why, but I love it. ..Probably because it’s like a window into American culture of the mid-80s - - my heyday. One of my favorite parts is when Susan (played by Madonna) strolls into a crowded NYC dance bar and what’s playing on the jukebox but, ‘Get Into The Groove’.

The Devil's Rain is pretty awful. William Shatner at his early 1970s perigee, combined with Ernest Borgnine's portrayal of Satan.

Another one that I saw recently may have been more disappointing than bad. I figured that Sam Peckinpah's first outing as director would be okay, especialy given the appeal of his stars - Brian Keith and Maureen O'Hara. Alas, The Deadly Companions fell woefully short of my expectations. I thought it odd that with all the westerns that were broadcast on network TV, that I'd never seen that one years ago. Well, mystery solved.

BTW, I think Plan 9 *was* a masterpiece, of a sort.
