Worst Movie You've Ever Seen

Recommended Posts

Lock n' Stock

Home Alone 4: a complete disgrace to a beloved series. So much so that Daniel Stern (one of the original actors from the first two) actually called it "an insult" and "total garbage" after declining to reprise his role as Marv. Good for him, too, because this movie was embarrassing. Also, they didn't dare ask Joe Pesci to come back.

 

 

It was made-for-TV, and I still remember when it first aired back when I was a kid. Even back then, I was confused as to why they'd suddenly make another Home Alone and use the exact characters from the first two but give them completely different actors. Nothing about this movie made sense. Apparently, the original goal in mind for this movie was to turn it into a TV series and several of the actors had clauses in their contracts to return if it got picked up as a series, but good luck shopping that around as a pilot.

F*CK that movie, seriously. I was a massive fan of the HA series as a kid, but even then I knew something was off about this one. They tried to tie it into the continuity of the originals but failed miserably.

That was among one of my favorite film series as a kid, too. Trying to tie it into the continuity of the first two made no sense whatsoever. They may as well have just done a Home Alone 3 and used completely different characters. At least then you could just write it off as a cheap cash grab and cheaper attempt at starting a Home Alone sitcom. I'm surprised ABC even aired it when they did, they had to know it was a terrible movie regardless. Everything about the movie really screamed "We don't give a sh*t." The gags, the acting, the fact that it was supposed to be the Chicago area and yet they're in the middle of nowhere surrounded by mountains and didn't try to hide it (I think they filmed it in South Africa for some reason, are there good tax breaks for the film industry there?), among other things.

 

Oh, and I almost forgot, ABC also made a Home Alone 5 a few years ago. I haven't seen it so I can't confirm if it's any worse than 4, but it looks like they basically just reuse a bunch of stuff from the first two movies and added modern technology and called it a day.

 

Why couldn't they just leave it be? 4 was embarrassing enough.

Was dragged along to see it with friends. I lied to them about needing the toilet just so I could go out escape it's cringe-inducing humor for a few minutes.

It was on TV so I watched a bit and my goodness it's so bad in just those few minutes.

What's up with the editing? Why's the aspect ratio changing so much?

Can't they show one thing for more than a second?

 

Plus, why do they still have that tiny robot from Revenge of the Fallen?

WHY?!

I have some mild respect for Transformers because the movies are ultimately unique in their terrible vision. Michael Bay makes bad movies but his style is one of a kind; kind of like Tommy Wiseau. Trashy auteurism is a thing.

At the very least, Bad Boys II is entertaining as hell.

Michael Bay isn't 100% bad, in my opinion.

The first Bad Boys, the first Transformers and The Rock were pretty good.

 

I haven't watched them, but I also hear that Transformers: Dark of the Moon (Part 3), 13 Hours and Pain&Gain are pretty good (as ARTHUR said).

I use to suppress bad memories quite efficiently so I can't name any specific offenders, but the face of Steven Seagal lights up from wherever I have tucked them away.

Pain&Gain is well worth a watch. It's a good satire on the American Dream and the true story behind it is quite disturbing.

Just sat through this monstrosity.

 

https://letterboxd.com/gst95/film/woody-woodpecker-2017/

Worse than the Yogi Bear and Chipmunks remakes, but is it better or worse than any of the Garfield movies from the 2000s? Those were such a waste of a Bill Murray casting before they went straight to video and Mr. Murray stopped being in them (I honestly didn't even know they continued with these until I looked it up just now, they actually churned out three more of those). I saw the first one when I was a kid on a bootlegged DVD and even then I remember seeing silhouettes of people walking in front of the camcorder and just leaving.

Unfortunately, I never saw Yogi and Chipmunks in full so I'm just making assumptions, though maybe that's a good thing. In regards to the Garfield films however, yes, I can confirm that Woody is indeed worse than them. The theatical films at least, I didn't know they made more of them either. No surprise since home video has always been a dumping ground for film projects that are DOA (as this Woody film demonstrates).

 

And you had to love those old bootleg DVDs. I owned a few (including a horrible one of Ang Lee's Hulk), though I don't even remember where or how people even got a hold of them. There must have been some seriously dodgy markets back then.

I haven't seen the Yogi or Chipmunks movies either, but one thing I always found weird about Chipmunks was how they got celebs to voice them, but then made them sound completely unrecognizable by making their voices really high-pitched. I get that that's how the chipmunks always sounded, but it's kind of another example of a waste of actors since they could have gotten anyone to do the voices. I guess Fox wanted big names to headline for ads and whatnot. This was around the time that Fox was still trying to compete with Dreamworks and Pixar with CGI films, but I don't think Fox's were as good. Even when I was a kid I disliked many of their earlier movies compared to what Pixar and Dreamworks had (and Dreamworks, in my opinion, didn't even have that many good ones, but the good ones they had were better than what Fox could come up with).

 

And yeah, here the "dodgy" markets like this one place that was a big building with what felt like too many vendors and stalls than what the city code probably allows crammed into it selling various goods were always the places to pick up bootleg DVDs. The copy of Garfield that I had must have come from one of those. I remember the cover of the DVD was a very badly-compressed image of the film's poster printed out off of a computer and crumpled into a generic DVD case. It was about the quality you'd expect for that film though, Fox shouldn't have wasted their money any further and just gone with that style for the DVD release.

If you ask me, CG films are too much of a trend these days. There doesn't really seem to be any integrity or passion put into them. The only studios who really seem to do right are Disney and Pixar, though Dreamworks and other studios do score a hit now and again. If anything, it would be refreshing to see a rebirth of 2D animation some time in the future, but it just doesn't seem to sell these days.

 

And that's sort of the same thing here. There's alot of towns scattered around which often have markets with open stalls of various items. Although I don't recall seeing pirated DVDs anywhere, I imagine that some stalls out there would have sold dodgier material than others. Thankfully, most stalls I see now tend to sell legit copies.

 

And some of those covers were hilarious. There were a couple of videos that Ashens made which showed off some good ones, like one of Star Wars: Episode II with a horribly incoherent backstory and obvious mispellings (like 'Episo pe 2'), or a copy of Die Another Day (worst Bond film ever) that only displays half the image.

CGI movies were even too much of a trend in the 2000s. It seems like everyone just went crazy trying to pump out as many as they could after Toy Story 1 and 2 proved to be successful, and now traditional 2D animation has taken a backseat. Pixar's movies were always quality, but haven't seen any of Disney's own CGI movies (though I've heard good things about Zootopia, was considering seeing if it was that good but they took it off Netflix last week), and I think the only Dreamworks films I remember liking when I was younger was the first Shrek movie and Over the Hedge (I saw this one again on TV recently, haven't seen it in years, but knowing how Bruce Willis is, I was amazed now that he sounded like he actually gave a f*ck in this movie, he put more effort into playing a raccoon than John McClane in the last Die Hard). And someone made me watch Bee Movie back when it was a gigantic meme, I guess it wasn't too bad but I really thought it was going to be funnier given how much everybody was telling me I had to see it (and that I'm a huge fan of Seinfeld).

 

Those Ashens videos were hilarious, too! I haven't been to one of those types of markets in years, but given how someone here was arrested after being pulled over and getting caught with something like 400 bootleg DVDs, I have little doubt that it's still a hot business and probably still being sold at those markets.

Zootopia is brilliant imo. Disney have been killing it with the CG films lately, they're lucky to have two very talented studios (their own in-house team and Pixar) under their umbrella.

 

To be honest, I also remember greatly enjoying Over the Hedge and thinking it was one of DW's better films at the time, Willis from what a recall did a good job with VOs. The Shrek series started off great as well, though took a massive dive with the third and presumably the fourth (which I never saw). Despite Pixar being vastly suprior, I'll still always defend Dreamworks for having some good stuff from their output, but the one film I feel they'd really want to forget is Shark Tale, their more "hip" answer to Finding Nemo which had Will Smith as an unlikeable and ugly fish (which basically had Smith's face rendered on it) and De Niro running a mobster family of sharks, yuck. Even Bee Movie was a masterwork compared to...that.

I'll have to check out Zootopia sometime then, hopefully they'll show it on TV sometime soon. Over the Hedge was definitely not a bad movie for a Dreamworks film, and as an adult I felt like it still held up for the most part and it's one of those clean movies that you can watch without cringing. It actually kind of reminded me of Toy Story in some ways. It feels a little more forgotten than other Dreamworks movies, but I notice that they seem to be showing it on TV here more often than they used to.

 

I did forget about Shark Tale though! From what I remember of it, that movie just wasn't that good at all. Strangely, I remember years ago having some kind of early promo card/image for it (I don't even know where the hell I got it from, either, some relative must have given it to me from somewhere), and the movie looked a lot different. From what I remember, the main character fish didn't have the face of Will Smith superimposed onto him (I wonder if that was the studio's idea or Smith's idea), and it was called "Sharkslayer" (which I later found out was changed because they thought that was a violent-sounding name and they wanted to attract more families, but I doubt anybody would have cared). The general premise was the same though, and it was no doubt an attempt to cash in on Finding Nemo.

Resident Evil and Anchorman, I understand.

Napoleon Dynamite is...umm...different, so I also understand that.

 

But why Mulholland Drive? I haven't seen it yet, but everyone's been saying it's one of Lynch's best.

His style is different that's for sure, but you can't he's done some iconic work!

(The Elephant Man, Blue Velvet and the first 1½ seasons of Twin Peaks being my personal favourites)

 

But I hear his "revival" of Twin Peaks is akin to Garbage Art unless you have "the specific artistic eye" or whatever, which I don't! :lol:
