Worst movies you ever saw (Page 21)
I have been reading this with great interest but the notion of selecting the “worst” film ever made is so personal and subjective that it might be better to narrow down the categories to something more specific. For example:
1. Worst direction of a horror film: “Children Shouldn’t Play With Dead Things” (Alan Ormsby directed it) This one was so bad that I cringed (and laughed my ass off) while watching it.
2. Most nauseating film: “The Green Inferno,” where GreenPeace workers crash land in the Amazon jungle and are captured before being tortured nearly to death and subsequently cannibalized. OMG!!!
3. Most Morally Offensive: “Milk Money,” with Melanie Griffith and Ed Harris who ought to be ashamed of themselves for appearing in it. This film features some kids who play match makers for a hooker and their father. This one made my flesh crawl and if I were not a civil libertarian, I would censor it due to the presence of children in the cast.
4. Most Incomprehensible: “Inception,” with Leonardo Di Caprio, which had stunning visual effects but which made as much sense as a bad acid trip. An interesting but confusing effort that gave me vertigo, for a short time.
5. Most Sophomoric and Nauseating: “Get Him To The Greek,” with Jonah Hill and Russel Brand, because you can only take just so much of watching a character vomit after a night of heavy drinking. This one would probably be very popular with college students on spring break, where bouts of all night drinking and puking are marks of status.
6. Second Most Nauseating Horror Film: “Contracted,” about a young woman who, after a one night stand, contracts what she thinks is an STD but actually, she is decaying slowly internally because she is clinically dead without realizing it. DO NOT watch this one unless you have a VERY strong stomach. Keep some Pepto-Bismol or Dramamine handy, because you’re certainly going to need it.
7. Most Graphically and Pointlessly Violent: “Would You Rather?” which features seven people who are competing for a very large cash prize by subjecting themselves to hideous and potentially fatal acts of self inflicted violence. This one is so violent and creepy that I was almost induced to turn it off in the middle. Don’t watch this and if you do, well....foretold is forewarned. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.
8. Most Sexist: “Indecent Proposal” where millionaire Robert Redford offers Demi Moore, who is married to Woody Harrelson, with whom she plans to buy a luxurious mansion, a million dollars if she will sleep with him. Even though I am a male, I was repulsed by its inherent sexism and its transparent cheesiness. Why the FUCK do established stars agree to making such an atrocity? Must be for the money.
9. Worst Attempt at a Big Screen Epic: “ Raintree County,” which, after a tremendous build up and a ton of advance publicity, is one of the biggest disappointments I have ever seen, especially given the cast, which included, among others, Montgomery Clift and Elizabeth Taylor. It made me wonder WTF they were thinking when they made it. People might disagree with my choice, but that film should be served up as a substitute for a Thanksgiving turkey. It stank from hunger, as my dad used to say.
10. Worst Special Effects in an Alleged “Horror” film: “The Tingler,” with Vincent Price. This film was so cheesy in terms of its special effects that you could see the creature was made of rubber along with the strings that pulled it along the ground in order to give it the illusion of movement. Fun to watch, if you don’t take it too seriously. Makes me wonder what the hell Vincent Price was thinking when he made it.
Now, this list, logically, is neither complete nor is it definitive, but it gives you a sense of what I can and cannot tolerate when I sit down to give over two hours, more or less, of my life. If you agree with my choices, fine, and if not, that is fine, too. Just give me a reason as to WHY you might wish to dispute my choices. Of course, this is all highly subjective and personal, but alas they used to say in the old days, “That’s what makes horse racing.”
See you at the movies!
