So So So So wrong . . . 1 and 2 are awsum techno induced comic classics one of the best crossovers for me.

The 3rd I agree is poor did what all Super hero films do throw a load of new Characters in who annoy and we don't really care about. Plus Snipes' teeth were to big for some reason and couldn't talk properly!!

How about ULTRAVIOLET, totally wasted opportunity!!! Rubbish

Re: Worst film seen...

Didn't like the blade series either really - But they were not that bad, just a bad view of what a vampire is.

Worst film I have ever seen? King Arthur and Troy come very high but all fail in front of Battlefield earth in shear terribleness.

Gadget and George originals were hardly masterpieces lol!!!

Totally agree though, I kinda enjoyed Troy apart from Brad Pitts terrible attempt at Bravehearteque speech, "Take it it's yours!!" erm no thanks Brad lol Brian Cox is class as Agemmemnon. (Could play Druss in a adaptation of Legend perhaps) we can dream?

Gadget and George – You know now you two have said it I have an overpowering urge to see them, just to see how bad they are.

Brad Pitt


That and in the cinema when he was calling out Hector, a guy in the middle seats somewhere shouted out – Don’t he look constipated – Could not take the rest of the film seriously after that.

Brian Cox



That’s a good idea, would fit the role with tweaking as well

Oh, and you liked Forbidden Plane too? Brilliant movie. Leslie Nielsen's first film appearance in a movie, I believe. Did you know it was based on one of Shakespeare's plays? The Tempest I think.
Yeah it is based on The Tempest which helps to make the film rock ...

Okay now that you have shown your "maleness/machoness" ... that movie is sweet and it is in no way the worst movie ever made... it is actually not half bad

Re: Worst film seen...

I once read an excellent book called The Fury by John Farris. Subsequently, I went to see the film, directed by Brian de Palma. Complete disjointed boring nonsense. Two hours of my life that I'll never get back again. This film is sometimes shown late at night on some terrestrial TV channels who presumably can't afford anything better. Avoid it at all costs - you will otherwise have an overwhelming urge to destroy not only your television but all other TV's in the world just in case you happen across it again. And when you realise that is not achievable, you'll simply gouge out your own eyes with a teaspoon.

Incredibly, John Farris is credited with writing the screenplay.

Also, Peter Jackson's Fellowship of the Ring. I'm a huge fan of the LOTR books. Watching this film made me want to kill myself but, more importantly, him. I realise that it has it fans and this posting will probably bring howls of protest from all quarters but, hey, it's my opinion. I can't see how it would appeal to anyone other than those too lazy to actually read the book. ...(where's the smilie for controversial?)

House IV. House I and II are good, campy, bad fun watching. House IV is just so, so BAD that it defies definition. It makes no sense, no continuity, bad acting, and not the least bit scary!

I protest! I protest! Peter Jackson brought LOTR into the mainstream with his films. Certainly you can see the benefit of that even if the films didn't wow you.(now King Kong, on the other hand, the world could've done without the remake)

Re: Worst film seen...

At last, someone with the anticipated protest. What, pray, was the benefit of bringing it into the mainstream, when he changed the story, changed the dialogue (and one of the great appeals of LOTR is the romantic - true sense of the word - language that Tolkien uses) and generally obliterated the soul of Tolkiens great work. It is Hollywood-isation at it's worst. Peter Jackson was presented with a precious (no pun intended) gift, and chose to squander it.
