    You know its the sort of film you watch because you think something interesting might happen but you just get fed a spoon of bullshit in the end.
    Something like The Mothman Prophecies.
    I actually think Richard Gere was channeling his inner gerbil when he made that film.

    i actually liked Ghost rider, i dont get why everyone hates it most. Anyway the matrix was always ment to be a triliogy, its like suggesting that LOTR was a sequal, its not, its the same story.

    Okay I know a movie that was great until they lopped more than an hour of it off. Caligula, When it first came out it played exclusively in the Pussycat theater in Hollywood, Ca. for about a year and a half. The full length picture was about 3.5 hours. A few years ago I tried to find a copy of the full length version of it and the best I could do was a 2 hour version. So I watched it and every single scene I liked had been cut out of it. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone now.

    yeah. I couldn't get past Godzilla going from teh Pacific ocean to New York. Why would it go all teh way around and not just go to LA or San Francisco? Why New York? I just couldn't get past that

    It's really tough on viewers when they find out Tokyo is not going to get flattened one more time. But one can only hope the next Godzilla picture will get it's act together.

    "The Last Castle" - 2001
    http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0272020/

    Also with a superhero theme, even if otherwise set in a realistic context.

    I actually did, at least twice. I like cheesy romantic stories.

    I actually fell asleep at Matrix 2 and 3 ...

    Also at Ocean's 12 and 13.

    I love Ocean's 11 and have seen it several times. But the 12 and the 13. Blegh.

    Transformers 2 was embarrassingly pathetic. It's what kept us from seeing the 3rd installment

    It was okay. I wouldn't buy the Blu-Ray, but it was entertaining and left me imagining a world in which the premise was true for a little while after the movie. It's not a movie I will think back on for years to come, but it was entertaining.

    The worst movie I've personally seen in theaters was MacGruber...so bad that I walked out and demanded my money back.

    I haven't seen any bad talk about any of the Tremors movies 1 thru 4. Does that mean others like those movies as much as I do? They aren't high budget, but they have an interesting plot and some cool characters.

    It was universally acclaimed as the worst big-budget film ever made at the time--consistently hated by both critics and the public. If quality can somehow be inversely correlated with the budget (adjusted for inflation and perhaps even for the disproportionately growing budgets of the film industry), I think it will retain that title for a long time. It hasn't even been released on DVD in America!
    A word from the moderator:

    I think if we're going to nominate a film for "worst ever" it has to be a consensus, not just your own taste. Otherwise we're just going to have a long, meaningless vanity thread about movies we each hated.

    Both "Titanic" and "Avatar" were extremely popular with both critics and audiences, winning eleven and three Oscars, respectively.

    Surely you guys can name a movie that everybody hated, not just you!

    Good point, Can someone compile a list of say the 10 worst, so we have something to vote on. Thanks

    A crappy movie made from a mediocre book, that was only made because the author of the book was L. Ron Hubbard, and Travolta is a scientologist.
