- Poorest films you've seen?

Did somebody really suggest In Bruges ,one of the best films ever IMO
You’ve got to rate Gangs of New York surely?
Erm definitely not , it was made even worse by all the hype and the fact that they spent millions building a set to look like New York back in the day .
Anybody suggesting Pulp fiction or Inglorious Basterds is surely not being serious .Posted 3 years agotenfootSubscriber
Boogie Knights – I almost walked out of the cinema, but am too tight. Luckily PT Anderson’s next effort, Magnolia, was way better, although when Tom Cruise started his Tame the **** speech, quite a few people got up and left.
Watched the Les Miserables film recently. The standard of singing was appalling from the 2 male leads. A bit like Ewan McGregor in Moulin Rouge; shouting in tune (without the tune)Posted 3 years ago
Inglorious Basterds is surely not being serious
I am perfectly serious. Tarantino has made precisely two really good films (dogs & pulp fiction) and has since proceeded to churn out a lot of overindulgent dross. I am also quite aware that completely against popular opinion, I don’t care, I’m not listening, la la la la la.Posted 3 years ago
TBH I just think he went a bit Costner.
i.e. everything became about 4 times longer than it really should have been.
I maintain dogs was tight, spot on. So was fiction, the whole feel was pitched just so. jackie brown was where it all started to slide.
I’m quite happy to give django a go if people rate it.Posted 3 years agoakasteveMember
The Will Smith I Am Legend.
The granddaddy of poor and overhyped films though has got to be Bladerunner.Posted 3 years ago
I’ve lost count of how many times I’ve tried to watch it and failed.
Got the Final cut on Bluray they other week and it looks amazing, still boring and still totally undeserving of its reputation.listerMember
MussEd ended this thread with Thomas and the Magic Railroad.
I’d like to add Ski School 2…very disappointing sequel, considering the greatness of Ski School.
I went to see Meet Joe Black with a girl I fancied when it came out. I had high hopes. Both girl and film crushed me.
I’m also not sure why I own a copy of Coyoye Ugly on DVD…Posted 3 years agocrashtestmonkeyMember
Recently watched Man on a Ledge. Sounded like an intriguing concept ala Phone Booth, sadly it went off in a different direction and that was all over the place. Got more and more ridiculous at every turn, and threw in a cringeworthy gratuitous underwear scene.
I assume people that say stuff like “In Bruges” are just being contrary. Seven Psychopaths was a disappointment though.Posted 3 years agoPimpmaster JazzMember
Well my vote goes to judge dredd…. The first one. What a sack of babb. It actually made me angry. I knew it would be crap but it went way beyond that. Not seen the new one based on that abomination.
Donks – watch it. It’s very very different (read darker).
Apparently Stallone said afterwards that they squandered the opportunity to do something really good with Judge Dredd. Dredd may actually show what they could have done. It’s not perfect, but it’s dark, bloody and very comic-like.
(Oh – except the Lawmaster bikes are awful)

I struggle with people who say “X was the worst film ever, I walked out after 20 minutes”. That’s a bit like saying “x is the worst song ever, I only listened to the first 14 seconds”.
In a moment of boredom we saw a film called “Extraordinary Measures” that was complete tosh, worst thing I’ve seen in the cinema.
Most seem to have been mentioned. Open Water I can let slide, as it’s based on a (supposed outcome of a) true story, it’s just an inherently uninteresting true story! Nicolas Cage is a great barometer for things to avoid.
The Village, and Speed 2 spring to mind as being really really rubbish!Posted 3 years agotightywightyMember

As for the worst….Piranha 3D.
Wrong. 🙂 A guy who gets his dongle bitten off by a Piranha and Kelly Brook frolicking around in her skimpies redeems it. The sequel Piranha 3DD however…
My own vote goes to Home Alone 3.
On a related note, I also saw ‘Bone Alone’ advertised for sale in the Co-Op. Not sure if it’s the same story as 1,2 & 3 but with a dog instead of a boy or just a porno version.Posted 3 years ago
