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, 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??

About halfway through the movie, everyone crammed into this car was in a stupor because the movie was so bad, and it occurred to me: The only reason I agreed to go see it was because the female star was a Playboy centerfold, and I thought we would, at the very least, get a cinematic look at her bare torso.
I said out of the blue: "I have a sneaking suspicion we aren't going to see her boobs."
I still get that quote repeated now and again...:) Ah well. Two of those people in that car that night didn't pay, since they were in the trunk when we arrived...at least THEY got their money's worth!
Dances with Wolves
Add Cowboys vs Aliens to the list.
I’ve seen many of the movies listed and while not masterpieces they were at least watchable. Nothing I have seen is as bad as “The Incredible Hulk”.
Last year, my wife and sisters insisted that we (my brother-in-law and I) watched “Bridesmaids.” Brother in law passed out. Finally, I got up and went upstairs and drank some wine. “Bridesmaid”: the worst chick flick since Edison invented electricity.
"Now, THIS is a Catwoman" (Spoken like Crocodile Dundee)
I can't stomach Halle Berry in anything. Brainless.
I have to admit, even though "Crystal Skull" was bad, it was so campy in some parts that it was fun. I mean, the lousy russian accent and over the top commie portrayal of Cate Blanchett was really funny. And the scene where he hides in a fridge to survive a nuclear blast is pretty good too...:)
I LOVE Mel Brooks, not as much as my kid does, but for longer. I even like some of the sillier ones, like Robin Hood - Men in Tights. Spaceballs is a family fave. Silent Movie is brilliant and such a wonderful valentine to his wife. But History of the World, blech!
In the spirit of full disclosure let me admit that the first time I saw “Young Frankenstein” it eluded me completely. Then my movie-loving friend confessed she felt the same way and said: Jocon, I think we’re wrong, let’s go see it again.
Needless to say we were laughing our heads off! Ever after that film has just gotten funnier everytime I’ve seen it.
And of course, blazing saddles, at that movie another friend of mine and I were pretty much literally rolling in the aisles. Of course that was back in the bad old days and we were a wee bit under the influence, but I’ve never laughed so hard at a movie in my life!
One of my friends is convinced that “Time Bandits” is one of the worst movies ever made, whereas I find greatness in it.
I must need coffee, I don’t know why I thought of Helen Thomas when I saw your post!
Thanks chessplaye. It would be easier to triage all films into ‘worth owning’, ‘worth watching’, and ‘avoid’, but here are some which come to mind:
“Roadhouse”; “January Man”; “The Wraith”; “Criminal Law” (the only movie I’ve ever walked out on and demanded my money back); “The Hobbit” (Ralph Bakshi’s on-screen abortion); “The Heavy Metal Movie”...
I am surprised that The Jackass movies weren’t on the list.
The performances by Lithgow/Lloyd/Schiavelli are pretty good.
Anything with Rosie O’Donnell
Only movie I ever slept through in the theatre.
As far as the worst of all time; I would have to list Ishtar, Battlefield Earth, Waterworld, American Beauty, Wall-E, The Contender, for starters...
That was the only redeeming part of that movie. How could they get so many top shelf actors into such a stinker is beyond me. You would think one of them would say: "Can we hang on a second...."
My wife found that one for me on DVD. I thought I was the only person to actually see it.
To me, the movie is so bad it is actually funny. Then again, I was born and raised in Michigan and have many Friends from the UP so some of the dialog is funny because it is true.
They said it was great!
They had good actors!
The critics loved it!
It was directed by a famous European artist!
It was restored to it’s original black and white!
It was on TCM!
I WATCHED IT!
I wanted two hours of my life back!
The movie, BREATHLESS with Jean Paul Belmondo and Jean Simmons.
When it comes to just plain bad, I nominate Starship Troopers 2.
