Re: Worst film seen...

Good point! I think I was rather rashly looking for entertainment.

I have to admit to really liking the old Dukes of Hazard though - maybe it's something to do with age. The utterly ruined my childhood memories of it. I was devastated.

Re: Worst film seen...

Not to be indelicate, but for entertainment, I think I'd rather have my nails pulled out with pincers rather than watch The Beverly Hillbillies; perhaps that's a tad overstated....

Re: Worst film seen...

Stealth, what a bomb and not really what they made it out to be in the trailer. Luckily i only hired it expecting it to be a "so bad it's funny" film. I can't believe that it got made, it is soooo stupid.
and The Bone Snatcher was awful, just awful, ants reanimating dead bodies so they can find another nest? come on, I've never seen something so dumb! And The House of The Dead, based on a Sega game was just as bad.

Re: Worst film seen...

What worries me is that, looking over the films they're going to be releasing in the near future, we may look back on all these as high-grade classics.....

Re: Worst film seen...

I have to say that all the reprehensible trash that is being made by the major studios gives me great hope for selling my screenplay. I don't mind being lumped in with the rest of the shlock, as long as the cheque doesn't bounce.

(If anybody wants to be mentioned in my Oscar acceptance speech, let me know now, okay?)

Also, I'll make sure I retain the rights to the characters, so I can be on the set when Richard Dean Anderson stars in the ensuing television series.

Re: Worst film seen...

Master and Commander was pretty bad, had to turn it off half way through. Which is a shame cos Billy Boyd's in it and he's fab!

House of the Dead truly was dire. What the hell Jurgen Prochnow was doing in it was a total mystery - probably ruined what was left of his career being in that.

I never got around to seeing that one but it was highly recommended on another web site as a must see. I don't remember what the expected demographics of the audience was and that site was not a Sci-Fi/Fantasy type site. (Are we talking fodder for unbridled teenage boys here?)

Yes, and particularly mentally-challenged teenage boys with abolutely no conception of storytelling at all. (Nor logic, nor taste, nor brains made out of anything other than rather overdone tapioca....)

Re: Worst film seen...

I don't know how anyone could've recommended it as a must see. At best one or two people may think that it was a brief bit of escapism, but Jesus... The only thing that was mildly amusing (and it wasn't supposed to be) was some of the totally over-Matrixed slow mo spin camera round person type fight scenes. They were really OTT.

Re: Worst film seen...

Ok- I just watched The Producers, with Uma Thurmon, Matthew Broderick, and Nathan Lane. Maybe it is one of those Broadway things, where seeing it in person is amusing because you can't believe the people are actually doing what they are doing, but the movie was terrible. Yech! I hate not watching movies until the end becuase I fear I may miss something great that makes the whole thing worthwhile, so I watched the whole thing, but man was I hating myself in the morning.
