    Default What is your least-favorite movie ?

    I mean, one that you watched from start to finish and really couldn't stand. (Not counting things like slasher movies and other craptastic stuff.)

    Mine is: Troy, with Brad Pitt as Achilles. Achilles was a homicidal maniac with necrophiliac tendencies, and Brad Pitt made him all "sensitive"! (insert barfing icon.)

    I HATED The Thin Red Line. Awful stuff.

    I went to see Eyes Wide Shut with a pretty big group of people, all Kubrick fans to some degree, and one by one everyone in the group wandered outside for a break. A couple people went to get coffee and came back. Some took a lengthy smoke break and came back. Nobody missed anything. I don't know if that counts because I most certainly did not watch the whole thing in its entirety.

    I hated "Being There". I also hated "The English Patient", like Elaine in "Seinfeld", I just wanted him to DIE already! There are a lot of other movies that I didn't love, although popular opinion said that I should. "Shakespeare in Love" and "Slumdog Millionaire" come immediately to mind (didn't necessarily hate them with a passion, but just didn't like them much and didn't get what all the hype was about).

    Titanic - one of the most contrived ridiculous movies I have ever seen. We are meant to believe that a society girl would have anything to do with let alone actually Do a lower decks schemer? Please! And then when they were floating - for the love of God - there was plenty of room to pull that simp up on the plank. UGH! Wish they had both drowned. And really, what woman would throw a gem like that overboard. Made me want to scream.

    Fatal Attraction - rented it to see what all the fuss was about. DH and I were not impressed.

    Titanic
    Kill Bill (only saw the first one and that was enough)
    Pulp Fiction

    But the all time WORST movie I have ever seen was The Sheltering Sky, with John Malkovich and Debra Winger. I saw it with a friend who felt the same, and to this day, 20 years later, it is still our benchmark for bad movies. One of us will start talking about how lame the movie we saw on the weekend was, and clarify that with "But it wasn't as bad as The Sheltering Sky".

    Atonement.

    Boogie Nights.

    The Anniversary Party.

    Breaking the Waves.

    There are probably worse movies I've seen, but these come to mind as the biggest disappointments, based on my expectations.

    Well..I can't comment on Titanic because the criteria was that you must have watched the whole thing. I cannot sit through more than 5 minutes of it..lol

    Vanilla Sky with Tom Cruise.

    Just.... WTF? I received it from a friend as a gift and promptly re-gifted.

    Also, Punch Drunk Love.

    Maybe I just don't "get" these kinds of movies?

    Agree with Rubyfree...Eyes Wide Shut. Oh good Lordy was that the worst film ever made or what???? I was really pissed off having to sit through it too. The movie was horrid...and the musical score made me stabby. A single piano key struck at random times, where's the fruitbat??? Blech!

    Titanic wasn't bad, but it was long.

    Now Kill Bill, Volumes 1 & 2? Brilliant! But then I adore Quentin Tarrantino. (did I spell that right?) His films make me sit there and watch like this: !

    And then any movie with Jean Claude Van Dammit, Tom Cruise or Steven Segal. Bad bad bad movies, all of them. I finally stopped having to watch or hear them in my house because I put a ban on those guys being seen on our main living room TV. Not allowed.
