We're going to have to disagree, I thought District 9 was awesome.

That and all the trailers I saw played up what the movie was about rather than focusing on the last part of the movie.

Seriously trailers, get your s&~@ together.


Junk Punch!!


Must've seen different trailers than you did, Rysky. :)

I found the trailers for Spongebob, Sponge Out of Water to be somewhat misleading, they only spent half an hour of the movie above the sea.

Still, a great movie though. :-)

On the basis of trailers and marketing, District 9 is hands-down the Gawd of Disappointing Films. "Robots! Sci-Fi! Asplosions!! Wewt!!" attends film "In Your Face Political Message!! ... with a smidge of what was promised."

...

I'd love to junk-punch the director/producers for that utter waste of time and money.

I loved district 9. Great movie.

Looks like someone is getting out voted about whether District 9 is a good movie.

(Also I trust Rysky.) :p ;)


^____^ Funny thing about opinions...

Everyone that's interested in the film should by all means view it and form their own opinion.

Turin,

I know. But Rysky and mine match more often than most. Especially on a certain thing that is unrelated to this thread. *coughlinnormscough*

So I'll form my own if/when it comes on TV.

But, I have actually heard that same criticism as Turin. Not that it was necessarily bad, just sold as something else. :-)

As a social commentary film thinly disguised as science fiction-y, had that been the bill of goods upfront, I'd have been fine with it. (It would not have been a see-in-theatre film for me, though, as social commentary films I prefer to view at home.)

It was such a jarring bait-n-switch that it royally soured me on the film.

From what I remember from the trailers was how the aliens were treated and shady government.

When I watched it I was actually surprised by all the action in it.

The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies had a very misleading trailer.

I thought it would be a good movie.

I was way off.


2 people marked this as a favorite.

LoL!! Yeah ... Missus Turin and I are of the opinion that the "Hobbit trilogy" should be pared down to 2 2-hour films.

The worst part, is when he used his son as a balance and sight for shooting the arrow.

The friction alone should've severed that kid's poor arm off at the shoulder.

Shameful.

Spoiler:

I said, spoiler...so you HAVE BEEN WARNED.

Normally, I'd say the social message was on par, but District 9 is all sorts of messed up.

Basically, the aliens have stuff that if you are exposed to it, changes you to an alien.

AKA...the way they become aliens can be to transform you into one...

sounds like an easy way to convert the entire populace and take over...

Which, funny as it sounds, when facing a hostile type takeover of that measure, could be a VERY GOOD reason (even if it wasn't in the movie) to isolate the aliens to their own areas, much less wipe them out.

In truth, I DVR'd it, and it got pretty boring, so I fast forwarded through a LOT of the movie. However, based on what I gathered from my 25 minute viewing of it (as I said, fast forwarded A LOT), yeah...

Yeah I never understood how one novel go turned into THREE movies.

Three books = Three movies made sense.

This? Not so much.

The thing that does the transformation did so by accident, it's actual purpose was fuel for a smaller ship that controlled the main ship.

I believe (and this is mostly theorycrafting) that the reason it does so is to ensure the ship has someone capable of actually being able to use it, seeing as how all their technology is fan based.


Oh cmon, who didn't see "The Hobbit; the totally expected Trilogy" coming???


I didn't WANT to see it coming howse that?


Pathfinder Adventure Path, Rulebook, Starfinder Adventure Path, Starfinder Roleplaying Game Subscriber

I love the first Hobbit movie, thought the second one was a little long, but overall alright. The third was... underwhelming, and entirely too drawn out.


Repligator

It's about a military experiment to create a ray that turns enemy soldiers into women, however when they have sex they turn into lizard monsters and the men they kill become gay zombies

I kid you not

You say that like that's not how real war works. Silly goose.

I adore bad movies, so I think it says a lot when even I can't finish a movie. GallowWalkers is one such film.


Gah. Don't remind about GallowWalkers...

Captain,

The first movie should have been the ONLY movie.

Once again, the title alone...

The scene with the guinea pig (or was it a hamster?) was worth the price of admission all by itself, to me in my teens.

I nominate A Polish Vampire from Burbank. Truly awful, even for an extremely low-budget horror movie. The sequel, Curse of the Queerwolf, was better (not a lot better, but it didn't take much to be better than the original). Runners up: Spanking the Monkey, and Baxter: Beware the Dog that Thinks.

Seriously trailers, get your s!$$ together.

I quite liked district 9 as well. I actually expected the political message and wasn't thrown off by it. I guess maybe that's because I read some reviews before I saw it so I knew what to expect.

Wish I'd done that before I saw Sucker Punch, or 300.


Sucker Punch was just bad. District 9 I could fast forward through, and enjoy the special effects.

Sucker Punch...I liked some of the dream sequences and if it was just a bunch of short cool sequences like that, but having to put up (even fast forwarding) through the rest of it...made the movie not worth really seeing ever again...and a waste of time. I get the message and what's supposed to be going on, but it was a really bad way of doing it.


anyone here seen Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter?

LOL

It is a rare movie that I deem too terrible to even try. I remember seeing that one on Netflix a couple of times... and I JUST couldn't click on it...

See, Suckerpunch is one of the most intricate movies I have seen in a long time. It goes quickly, you need to be on your toes, things are not as simple as they may seem, symbolism abounds, and the themes explored are very much worthwhile ones. Goes to show how differently people understand it, and appreciate it. I loved it.


Sucker Punch was bad. The uncut version was pretty damn good. It is amazing what a few extra minutes will do for a movie. Case in point was Terminator 2. I loved the movie, but I had only seen the theater version. I went to Blockbuster and rented it to watch with my ex- and I picked up the extended version. The extra 20 or so minutes made the movie even better.


There are several movies that vastly improve with the director's cut/extended versions, many of which have been mentioned.

By comparison Deadpool has several deleted scenes. With one exception, all of them were wisely cut from the theatrical release.

Seen it...I got that bad boy on DVD...


I adore District 9 and actually think it's one of the best science fiction major releases of the last decade or so. Chappie though....Chappie was really bad on so many levels, from characters to plot. When characters in your film call out that certain plot points don't actually make any sense, its a bad sign

I hated Sucker Punch as well, and was expecting a lot more fun movie than it actually was. The whole narrative frame work just doesn't work, and it feels like it's less trying to make a statement about fantasy as a form of escapism and more an excuse for Zach Snyder to have scantily dressed women in over the top action sequences filmed as music videos.

but like I don't think any of these movies by far qualify as "dumbest movie ever filmed" There is a substantial gap between bad theatrically released movie and things like "The Room" or "Barn of the Blood Llama".

Spoiler:
The director's cut contains two extra scenes (maybe more, I just saw those two scenes on the net). Of the two, one is a show number which was glamorous but probably not necessary, the other is an absolutely central scene for the entire movie. Meeting the High Roller is where the heroine finally understands her own sexuality. During the entire film up to that point, others have forced her into acting for their pleasure. With him, she finally accepts her desire and acts on it. The mood goes from dread to triumph, the real emotional payoff of the entire movie. It explains so much of the other scenes that it's ridiculous. Given the thematics and symbols of the movie, I would speculate that what actually happens is that she meets him and finds him a decent person - which is corroborated by him shutting the asylum down. And of course, the moron censorship people see only sex=bad and CUT IT. It's a massive offense of the whole principle of censorship that leaves the movie mutilated.

No but he does say "I am everywhere" or something along those lines while simultaneously fighting a mad scientist and a group of vampires in two separate locations.

Van Helsing, Kate Beckinsale clearly went to the Jar Jar Binks school of indecipherable accents, and Hugh Jackson couldn't hit the side of a vampire barn with an automatic fire crossbow if he was standing next to it.

And then there's Dracula or whatever, I've never seen a more extreme textbook example of patented overacting outside of middle school drama club, maybe not even there.

Yes, I have a middle schooler in drama club. :-)

I have seen many, many, many bad movies of the years. I'm sure that Monster a go-go, Beast of Yucca Flats, and Birdemic are all mentioned somewhere on the thread. Those three are my personal "worst movies ever" selections.

Dishonorable mentions include most of the scifi original films. Mill Creek has loads of cheese in various collections - the Scifi Invasion collection contains 50 contenders like Alien Prey, Star Pilot, ROTOR, Robo Vampire, and so on.

One runner up that hasn't been mentioned yet - the 1967 version of Casino Royale. Though far better than most Troma films, it has a highly talented cast that become lost in a mess of a plot. The movie had so much going for it, yet fails to find a focus. It was meant to be a spoof o James Bond, yet picks up and drops plot threads so quickly that it is more like several random talent sketches spliced together rather than a coherent movie. Even Ishtar at least stuck to a single plotline.

And speaking of Ishtar,I found Ishtar to simply be an unfunny version of Spies like us. It wasn't that it was bad, it just could have been much better - not a good film, yet certainly isn't as bad as any of the films riffed by MST3K.

Going by everything I heard about it, Jem and the Holograms was unspeakable garbage. Why make a movie about an obscure 80's cartoon, and then throw out everything that people actually liked about the original?

And I saw Sharknado the 4th Awakens last weekend. Dumb as dirt, but man was it ever fun. Now why can't more stupid movies at least be this entertaining?

And then there's classics like [i]The Horror of Party Beach{/i] where we learn that radiation can turn drowned corpses into frogman vampires.
