I mean, after watching this

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0271451/

(well, actually it's so unbereable I had to give up after 35 minutes or so), I wonder what you folk came across during a lifetime of cinema going and/or video rentals.

Gianni

PS: second spot for "Pinocchio" by Roberto Benigni

Tetsuo Oct 12, 2009

Definitely Tetsuo: The Iron Man. It's the best proof that there is absolutely no limit to how bad a movie can be.

The Terminal with Tom Hanks.... Oct 12, 2009

It's difficult to articulate quite how much I hated this film.......
Tom Hanks should leave comedy well well alone.

Wish list Oct 12, 2009

Browsing through the list makes me think you really did not try to see those bad ones

One example: I have not seen it (yet?), but „Hard Ticket to Hawaii” seems to promise top cringe factor... Just search it on YouTube („Skater's death” being my favorite scene http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XOBbmdJTLdE ), but be really, really warned!

Pulp Fiction Oct 12, 2009

The only time in my life I left a theater during a picture.
As for "worsts" that are so bad as to be campy good:
Horror: "Valley of the Gwangi" (funnier than Airplane)
War: The Battle of Blood Island- Hilarious- not even the Foley work in synch -guys dropping without being shot, etc.

Jurassic Park Oct 12, 2009

Walked out of it...

A couple of other stinkers:
Before Sunset and Before Sunrise, with Ethan Hawke (don't like him anyway)...boring, self-indulgent, pointless. Only watched parts of the first one, and a few minutes of the second one out of curiosity to see if it was any better than the first one -- NOT!

They Live, V (old tv miniseries) Oct 12, 2009

Unfortunately I used to be pretty into these, but in retrospect they are just so lame:

- They Live (potentially interesting concept, godawful acting, e.g. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Lwlx3GnLGs)
- The old "V" tv miniseries from the 1980s. I see they're resurrecting this. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_mry2WUQLVE (I quote: "the beautiful and brave young scientist fighting for the survival of the human race..." - oh, yeah!)

L'Année dernière à Marienbad Oct 12, 2009

I had to watch it because it was linked to my MA thesis and I nearly feel asleep.

Pulp Fiction is a fantastic film.
