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, youre 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, weve 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??

Worst movie? Most people haven’t seen enough truly wretched movies.
Our vote goes to Nukie http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0107715/ We love “bad” movies, we watch MST3K reruns over and over again on http://www.justin.tv/mst3k2 but we got this stinker for 25 cents on vhs and my husband couldn’t finish watching it! Truly awful!
Over eighty responses and no mention of Zardoz or The 10,000 Fingers of Dr. Terwilliger T ? For shame
Wolverine and Xmen. Bleh. Physical illness comes on fast if this on in my house.
Yeah — I didn’t see Avatar but it didn’t look appealing.
I thought Halle Berry’s Catwoman was decent — I think it was panned by the critics because they thought it was anti-gay.
Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skull - wasn’t horrible either.
Phantom Menace was bad but Episode 2 was worse.
The only movie me and the Mrs. ever walked out on was Ed Wood. PUKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Mars Attacks; with Pierce Brosnan, Jack Nicolhson, Jack Nicolhson, and Jack Nicolhson
From the article: “We won’t be satisfied until Jeremy Renner stars in the gripping adaptation of Mr. Potatohead.”
LOL, I’d say don’t give them any ideas.
I think they left off a few that were really bad. Howard the Duck for one, infamously bad. And also The Avengers, not the super heros but Steed & Mrs. Peel as played by, whats-his-name and Uma Thurman (wasn’t it she?). I only saw the last 5 minutes and even that much was enough for me to say to hubby: do you think when folks are making a movie this bad they realize it while it’s happening? Or do they think it’s good and only find out later it’s bad? It must be a pretty awful experience in any event.
I also can’t stand “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory” (the original - I never saw the new one); I think it is one of the most confusing, creepy movies of all time. But some people seem to love it.
My votes: Paint Your Wagon, Time Bandits, Give My Regards to Broad Street, Magical Mystery Tour.
I got so disgusted with movies in the mid 70’s and lost all interested in going to the theaters. When my eyes opened and I became a conservative (years before becoming a Freeper) I gave up on financially supporting most all of HOLLYWOOD’s trash.
If Mrs. LVD wants to see a current movie, we get it on NETFLIX on the cheap. (Some may even be available at our local library, for free).
“Never saw a reaction like that to ANY movie, before or since.”
You remind me of other bad movies:
Monty Python’s “Meaning of Life” we were just about ready to walk out, but then the movie was over. We were then annoyed at ourselves! Absolutely their worst effort ever.
Mel Brook’s “History of the World” I remember this one had one or two chuckles, but that was about it. I now know to avoid all comedy movies with grandiose titles.
And for me personally Lindsay Anderson’s “O Lucky Man” which was somewhat relieved by the musical interludes by whatever band it was. My boyfriend dragged me to this and I seriously thought I was going to die of boredom and/or old age in that movie theater.
Start Trek V.
Another "so bad it was good".
p.s. Fienne's flick was "The English Patient." I almost fell asleep thinking about it.
As if “Billy Jack” or “The Trial Of Billy Jack” weren’t bad enough. I guess Tom Laughlin decided to make a trilogy of stinkers.
The laughs generated by Martian heads exploding from listening to Slim Whitman makes that flick not truly horrible but mildly entertaining.
Pretty much any movie with Victor Mature in it, but I will nominate Demetrius And The Gladiators.
"Whose Life Is It Anyway?", with Richard Dreyfus as a sculptor (not just any sculptor but a BOSTON sculptor) who is rendered quadraplegic in a car accident.
Poor dude wasn't able to sculpt any more, like if he'd been a plumber he's have said "Oh, being quadraplegic ain't so bad once ya get used to it."
Oh, the angst...
