back to article So, what IS the worst film ever made?

Our piece last week on Eddie Murphy's cinematic train-wreck A Thousand Words - a possible nominee for the worst film ever - had El Reg commentards queuing up to recount their celluloid nightmare experiences. And chilling reading it made, to be sure. Inspired by your litany of cinematic shame, we've decided to run a poll this …

Re: This thread delivers!

Well, you have certainly done your part! Thanks!

I'll have to try Google for an intro to "Lexa Doig" - not that I have any broken glass available.

(I'm still smiling.)

I too, very much like The Chronicles of Riddick. It's a guilty (and perhaps dumb) pleasure.

So bad it transcends cult status

When you get a faux horror musical that the fans hate the band hates and the general audience detest what more can you say. Well if you can last 20 minutes unaided by alcohol or psychotropic drugs please visit a psychiatrist the movie -

"Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park"

you can add to a lesser degree each time "Steve ( I used to be funny on SNL) Martin" takes an icon and besmirches it with a remake or in case of Bilko a travesty there can be no excuse especially when you crayon in the script.

> "Kiss Meets the Phantom of the Park"

I'm still trying to get a hold of "Kiss Saves Santa". But I'm sure it'll be on at Christmas.

Terminator

Leprechaun 4: In Space

Oh yes. I did wonder if it was supposed to be tongue-in-cheek as the budget was so small. It was so bad I almost enjoyed it.

I can't believe...

...anyone wouldn't have "Howard the duck" high up in their list...

Also the Stallone version of "Get Carter" was so execrable I watched (in disbelief) only the first 8 or 10 minutes, and then turned it off.

However, not all remakes are bad:- the Bruce Willis film "Last Man Standing" was actually a pretty good remake of "For a fistful of dollars"

Re: I can't believe...

Howard the Duck is like a Troma film--it's MEANT to be ridiculous, and for that it tends to attract a cult following (for example, if I were to find it on DVD for two or three bucks, I'd get it).

Alexander is one of the saddest things I've ever (half) watched. What a pretentious, self important piece of crap it was. I just couldn't make it to the end.

I would have just mentioned "Transformers", but I'm certain it was already nominated many times... wait, I just mentioned it anyway, didn't I?

From the forbidden box of Betamax tapes...

The Atlantis Interceptors

Rats: night of terror

More recently

Barb Wire - the Pamella Anderson remake of Cassablanca

Green Lantern

The Green Hornet ... so bad I microwaved the DVD

Any Star Wars or Battlestar Galatica spinoff/ prequal and as for the churnings of the SyFy channel probably the less said the better. given the amount of dire offerings it produces it would need a poll all of its own.

WTF?

So, why no mention of Von Trier's "Dogville", starring Nicole Kidman?

I, personally, loved it. Very many other amazon.com reviewers, however, apparently lacked the subtle and sophisticated artistic sensitivities that I am endowed with. So, I am a little surprised that no one has mentioned it here.

Well, there is that bit about Nicole Kidman being seen in it, raped and all. Redeeming?

The avengers

the remake/bodge job with sean connery as a villian

I was forced to watch this by a plane breaking down in Idaho and being stuck in a hotel for a day, Believe me when I'd take my chances with that plane rather than have to watch that drivel again.

Blair Witch

"The Blair Witch Project" is worse by an order of magnitude than other merely bad films. Most films have some redeeming feature -- nice idea, bad script; woeful direction, nice lighting... some little thing that someone on the crew did well. "Love Actually", for instance, contains a lot of superb acting. Only "Blair Witch" is unremittingly awful in every single way: script, camerawork, lighting, acting, direction, editing, story, sound, the lot.

Re: Blair Witch

Agreed,

When a friend of mine saw it, he said the only thing he found scary was that some many people enjoyed it.

I was reading this thread last night...

...and had to get myself a beer because it was just like being down my local !

Can I say that liked to bit in Highlander 2 when SC flogs his earring to the huffy tailors.

Doesn't save the film of course.

Have not yet seen it but I suspect that Disney just ruined John Carter.

I must disagree: the series of B&B were irritating, but the film wasn't at all bad. Obviously the two main characters were still irritating but I found the over-zealous security chief very funny throughout.

The Telephone. Don't know who made it and don't care who's in it - worst ... film ... ever.

I saw half of it it in the early 90's and it was so boring it still haunts me today.

Spaced Invaders

It's the only movie I ever attended that I requested a refund on from the theater. The lone funny line/scene from the previews on TV was discovered to be edited for the preview and thus never was actually said as part of the movie dialog.

It just gets worse and worse until it sinks to the level of mammoths building the pyramids. Oh dear.
