I know whatcha thinking... here he comes again with yet another thread about "which is best/worst"... but I am home alone and I am getting bored, so let's mention those whose name for you is sufficient to turn down a movie!

My "favorite" pair: Ben Affleck/Monica Bellucci. Is there a way we can help them finding another job, for movie industry's sake?

And how about Maddona? Dec 26, 2005

No questiong her musical savvy...few artists are so chamaleon-like in this field, but after watching "Evita" and "Body of Evidence" one is led to think "Oh boy, what's she's gonna tell her kids when they grow up?"

Petula Clark Dec 26, 2005

Her 'performance' in a dreadful remake of 'Good-bye Mr Chips' is by far the worst performance I have ever seen in a film. Note I avoid using the word 'acting'. 'Cause it wasn't. I watched for 15 minutes in disbelief and had to switch it off.

Other movie actors whose presence in a film automatically means I'll never see it are:

Stewart Granger, Victor Mature and Charlton (Charlatan?)Heston
No actresses seem to have such an effect on me,except maybe Doris Day but she's academy award material compared to Petula and the 3 actors I just mentioned.

Jean-Claude Van Damme et al Dec 26, 2005

Van Damme, Chuck Norris and Steven Seagal are my very favourite worst actors in history.

My husband just rented T&A - er, excuse me, Dukes of Hazzard, and hoo-boy, have you ever seen one so camera-conscious as this bit of cheesecake.

Let's hear it for the good ones, the ones that take you right into the story and keep you there long after the film is over - Jack Nicholson, NIcholas Cage, Uma thurman, Jeanine Garofalo.

or Jennifer Lopez any other singer who might have musical qualities (some have, some don't) but thinks that acting in front of the camera is so simple... and of course very convinced of being fantastic actresses we all have been waiting for. Madonna included.

Juan Orol, Mexico. Dec 26, 2005

Probably unknown for non-mexican people, but you should!
Low budget actor and director, always a veeery bad gangster.
Should I also mention Doris Day and John Wayne?

Schwarzenegger? Dec 26, 2005

Actor or politician? To be honest, I haven't noticed any improvement since he went into politics

Steven Seagal Dec 27, 2005

One-expression Seagal, hero of several action movies, who keeps a set expression of grim determination on his face at all times, whether appropriate or not.

I'll certainly avoid any movie this guy's starring in - especially when he's wearing his Zen outfit with gold earrings and whatnot.

who, in the movie Meet Joe Black has made the worst performance I have ever seen on silver screen. But then, the fact that she was acting side by side with Anthony Hopkins the Magnificent probably had made her total lack of talent more conspicuous


Gianni, I enjoy a lot these threads of yours. Are you planning to start a "Most Boring Movie Ever" one, or should I tell now that so far it's been this Meet Joe Black to me?

She got famous after playing the main character in the Brazilian series "Tereza Batista Cansada de Guerra", which I haven't really watched because I was "too young" back then. What I do remember being her worst was her portrayal of Eurídice in the movie "Orfeu". When you're acting opposite a singer-turned-actor and he does better than you, you definitely have some problems...

Really can't defend Ben on this one (even though he kinda convinced me he was blind on "Daredevil"...), but if you've seen "Irreversible" and you still say that Monica Bellucci is the worst, I really don't know where you're coming from...
