A Conversation for Talking Point: The Worst Films Ever Made

Utter tripe!

Post 1


So many to chose from!

Titanic, as mentioned by others, was just plain awful: boring, too long, stupid and implausible love thing going on, I can't stand Leonardo de Thingy on purely irrational grounds.

Any of the Highlander films - they just felt like they had been cobbled together with very little imagination.

Star Wars: Phantom Menace (the 1st one of the new batch, I think I got the title correct) - one of the few films I've actually switched off quarter of the way through! Just plain boring and sfx-driven.

Any of the Carry On films - mainly because my humour has changed since I was a child and I no longer find them funny.

Anything with Jim Carrey in it - he's just not funny.

The Naked Gun films - they should have stopped with Airplane II; the jokes are just tired and we've seen them all before.

And not forgetting those pestilential plague-spots that blighted British Cinema in the 60s and 70s - the spin-offs from TV series (On the Buses, etc,) and the so-called sex comedies such the Confessions Of series. Gut-wrenchingly awful.

I think I'll stop now before I give myself a migraine just thinking about them!

Utter tripe!

Have to agree with you about Titanic, the biggest waste of a budget ever.


Utter tripe!

I'm someone who can look at most objects and suck some element of interest from it. Walked out.

I watched speed two in French, was actaully better than when I saw it in English, doesn't say much.

Confessions of a ...., On the buses, are you beening served on holiday movies were jut cheap fun expanded british comedies, not good but like a kiss me-quick hat or a naught postcard, they are not meant to be good, they are light hearted entertainment.

The worse films are the ones that actually try and then fail, like titanic - My big gripe, the biggest ship of its age, being modelled by rooms of the best 3D rendering computers, so how comes it has less wave than a small ferry ? If they can't get something simple like that right ...

Utter tripe!

You wouldn't want to be getting Migranes now. Your wife might not like it! She might think you wouldn't be up to much!

Because at the time, the software wasn't intelligent enough to generate the wake; the animators had to do everything themselves. Apparently they messed it up.

Utter tripe!

The Phantom Menace was indeed mind-numbingly afwul - so much so that I refused to watch Attack of the Clones. Didn't see Titanic either because I could tell in advance that it was going to be horrible.

The worst film I've seen recently was Perfect Storm - sentimental tosh. And I had to sit through the whole thing because it had been rented on video by friends I was staying with, and they thought it was OK! smiley - grr
