Recommended Posts

I think somebody already touched on this, but can't find it now

 

What is the worst film you've yet to see?

 

My own is the usual pick PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE but it's fun

GLEN OR GLENDA is as well

 

So maybe 1970's MYRA BRECKINBRIDGE fills the bill & not fun

what is yours???

Schindler's List (1993)

Bad B movies aren't meant to be taken seriously. So I would never say they are bad, just not for me.

Not quite sure how I can rate a movies I have yet to see, but, I would rate this one near the top of films I will always be "yet to see".

I think it's a cliche to resort to selecting horror films in answer to the question posed by the OP.  Plan 9 is not a bad film; it's simply not slick, not pretentious, and practices the art and technique of the film in an elemental, imaginative way, with a minuscule budget.

My choice for the worst film of all time is Brazil (1985), a pile of pretentious crap masking as some kind of social commentary.

The worst film my dad has ever seen is Bio-Dome.  It is brought up so often in our house that it has become a running gag. Whenever we see a bad movie, I would always joke "Is it worse than Bio-Dome?"

Based on my dad's recommendation, I will never watch it, but I read some of the IMDB reviews. (I'm sure I'm the not the only one who has read IMDB reviews of bad movies.) One of the reviews says it makes the Paris Hilton movies look like Citizen Kane. Paris is no actress, but we see the humor in the review.

Well, there's the worst movie of all time, and then there's the worst movie any of us have ever seen.  And you should know that nobody will agree as to which is the all time worst, as somebody's worst is another's favorite.  So far for me.......

QUEST FOR FIRE is holding the spot for now.  But ask my ex, and she'll say Jackie Gleason's GIGOT  was a steaming pile.    And Alicia, who really disliked Debbie Reynolds for some reason would say it would be any of her movies.

This discussion has already touched at the heart of where such topics must inevitably go, which is the nature of subjectivity.

If a movie like Plan 9, universally considered to be of poor quality, is "fun," and a much-lauded more artistically elevated film is dull, which is really the worse film? If the purpose of a movie is to entertain, then one that entertains is a success, and one that fails to entertain is not, no?

Then there are movies like Schindler's List that someone mentioned as a movie they will always have "yet to see."  We all have those movies. The ones we know are acknowledged to be brilliant, and deep down we know will perpetually grow stale on our "to watch" list, remaining unseen since time immemorial. If a movie is a screaming success in almost every other respect, but can't reach an audience, or can't motivate enough of a commitment even to sit down and watch it once...well, whether it is artistically elevated, or entertaining, or both, it's like the proverbial tree falling in the woods; at least in the subjective mind of the individual viewer (or non-viewer as the case may be). Obviously, many other people have watched such movies and found value in them, and we don't begrudge them their own subjective experience.

This discussion has probably been had since the first bison was painted on the first cave wall, and I doubt we shall solve it here. But trashing bad movies, and reveling in enjoyably bad ones is fun to pass the time, so why not have at it?😉

Personally, I liked It Came From Outer Space, in response to the person whose mother is quoted as "God-awful." I wouldn't even say it's among the worst sic-fi/horror of the era. But again, subjective opinions and all.💙

It's a several place tie. I'd say "50 Shades of Grey", "A Talking Cat?!" and "Superbabies: Baby Geniuses 2" share the honor. If I absolutely MUST break that tie I'd hand the honor to 50 Shades of Grey. It is not just smut, it is dull smut. And they apparently made several of them!

I would rather stare at a bison painted on a cave wall, for two hours, than ever have to watch "50 shades of Grey" again.

I'd easily rank PLAN ( & GLEN OR GLENDA among the weirdest though, but A #1 film that takes that honor is DAVID LYNCH'S 1976 ERASERHEAD

Au contraire. If you want to see f***ed up film making at its finest, track down a copy of 1990's "Night Killer". It is sometimes on youtube. But it is not dull. It is allegedly horror, but it is actually just a master class in how  not to make a movie. A child being walked to school to soft core porn music. A woman arguing with an obscene phone caller. Later, when the villain is revealed, he is very much the wrong body type and has the wrong hair color to be the guy they were showing from the back.  The fact that The Night Killer only kills during the day because night shots cost money. And finally there is a kidnapper's soliloquy to "fried chicken and French fries".
