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??

I am surprised that The Jackass movies weren’t on the list.

I liked Buckaroo when it came out. Looking at it now, yeah, it's pretty bad.

The performances by Lithgow/Lloyd/Schiavelli are pretty good.

Big Trouble in Little China is one of my favorite corny/bad movies of all time.

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...

No way, any film with the decapitated head of Horse Face lefty Sarah Jessica Parker has redeeming qualities.

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...."

Escanaba in da Moonlight.

Worst.film.ever!

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.

I loved Big Trouble in Little China. Corniness becomes art.

When it comes to just plain bad, I nominate Starship Troopers 2.

My vote goes to Malevolence (1999). Laugh out loud bad. It must be seen to be believed.

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.

I have been doing all my movie watching on YouTube and other free net sources for years now. There are more movies on YouTube than I will ever watch, and news ones appearing all the time.

Lately I've become a big fan of BBC period dramas, and because I have a MA fetish I check out eastern cinema from time to time. And old movies in general...sometimes I think all the hottest leading ladies are dead...sigh.

The only movie I ever walked out on (at my Brother-in-law’s request) was the American dubbed version of FELLINI-SATYRICON back in 1970. It was BAD!

Saw it years later in Italian with English subtitles, it was much better. I had also read Petronius’ SATYRICON so knew a little more as to why the movie was so disjointed.

***This Island Earth MST version (netflix) is extremely funny.***

But they left out two reels of the movie in the version I saw! Much better w/o the MST comments.

You ever see SONG OF NORWAY? Beautiful color! Beautiful scenery! Songs! dancing! Made me and many others want to vomit! It was awful!

Ishtar

Glitter

It’s Pat, The Movie (didn’t see it but almost wretched back in the day when they were running ads for it on TV)

The Adventures of Pluto Nash

Xanadu

Twilight Saga movies

Judge Dread

my number 1 for worst movie though is:

Out of Africa

Haven’t been to a movie theater in years and don’t plan to go anytime soon. The junk coimg out of Hollywood is so bad they should pay me to go watch it.

“A Boy and His Dog” was it for me.

Say it aint so.....

It is a cult classic. Saw it when I was in college. A few beers before we went and a few smuggled into the theater and it was great.

.? I really liked League.

Me too. But I'm the kind of guy less bothered by a battlecruiser sized submarine in the canals of Venice than I am by the fact that Tom Sawyer would have been 60 in 1900.

One is insanely cool, the other is just wrong.

She was great as Stupifyin' Jones in LIL ABNER! And the only CAT WOMAN worth watching! She even stupified Itchey McScratchy (Jerry Lewis). Here she is as Stupifyin' Jones!

"Agreed.... But her boobs were amazing!"

Actually, I think that was the whole point of making the movie. They started with those, and made a weak attempt to build a movie around them. It was a bust.

I love TIE either way — saw the MST version when it first came out. So glad it and other MST are on Netflix.

The redeeming features of HtD was Lea Thompson, who was utterly gorgeous, even if she did have sex with a duck. And Jeffrey Jones played a better than average scene chewing monster villain.

Far better than playing a good guy in Mom and Dad Save The World, with Jon Lovitz as the villain.

I seldom patronize theaters, but I may start watching a movie on TV. If it is really bad, I change channels. But I seldom remember the name of the bad movie- why bother?

A lot of these movies aren't that bad. They're "A" films that didn't work.

It's the movies that never made it into theaters that really stink. The straight to video stuff.

It's no fun to slam movies nobody's ever heard of, though, because nobody knows what you're talking about, but if you rent one of those movies by mistake you'll see the difference quickly enough.

I bought the book, used hardcover. I had to force myself to finish the book, one chapter every night.

On the positive side, the movie was fodder for one of the better epis of South Park.

To immediately skip over it viewing the listings?

I also associate the lead(s) with the title, just to be sure.

The sub was stupid. But League had the same element that Avengers and the TV show Heroes had: a group of individuals who have distinct talents but who are even better working as a unit. That, to me, is America-—individuals becoming great by maximizing what only they can do.

One of my favorite episodes of “Cheers” had the bar gang going to a drive in on it's last night. Fraiser had never been to one and was excited to announce that he gets to be “trunk boy.” IRRC he spent the rest of the show in the trunk as they couldn’t get him out.

Way back when, during the era of Creature Features, host Bob Wilkins would often state that “tonight’s feature is not the greatest movie ever made.” At times it was difficult to watch the entire movie. One night however, was one that Wilkins introduced as quite possibly the worst movie ever. He stated that the entire budget was just $500. It featured evil trees that attacked at night. The ‘lighting’ was a string of lightbulbs on a cord. The movie’s name is “The Navly vs the Night Monsters.” I probably still have the VCR tape somewheres.

No doubt, the WORST MOVIE EVER is The Thing with Two Heads, a 1972 film, starring Rosey Grier, Ray Milland and Don Marshall directed by Lee Frost, and written by Wes Bishop.

Plot summary
Milland plays Dr. Maxwell Kirshner, a dying, wealthy racist who demands that his head be transplanted onto a healthy body. As his health rapidly deteriorates, there remains only one alternative: graft Kirshner’s head onto the body of a black death row inmate, Jack Moss, played by Grier.

Problem Child 2

Besides being throwup-bad, they had a scene where 2 milk men are delivering somethign to a house, and while they are waiting at the door to deliver somethign and one reaches over and caresses the other who slaps him away and says “not now” - nothing to do with the plot at all, just tossing in a pointless gay scene in the continuing indoctrination...
