I don't think I've ever seen anything with Eric Roberts... if I have I must be blessed not to remember it.

One actor that GETS ON MY NERVES!!!

Val Kilmer... the man inspires hate in my heart... Arrgh! EEEwwwww! and all such things...

OMG. . . Ishtar. . . possibly the worst movie ever made. . . with the possible exception of Heaven's Gate. . .

But come on. . . I'm amazed at the battle over Battlefield Earth. . . face it, sometimes, you just can't make good movies out of good books. . . although, I would question Battlefield Earth as a good book. . . (and yes, I've read it. . . )

But going back to Dune. . . yes, I've just watched it again on video, and I don't know if you know that it was recently re-made for the Sci-Fi Channel over like three nights I believe. . . and they still missed some things. . .

Okay. . . now then. . . worst movies. . .

Meet the Parents
and Star Trek:Generations. . . (even though I love Star Trek, this movie was just there. . . )

You have some good points there ROn - to add to that list: Wizard of Oz (Betcha Baum would've rolled in his grave!) Jurassic Park and to a greater extent, the Lost World (I think the only similarity between book and movie was the title!), the Relic (will always remember that book.. was the first one I read toward the end of boot camp... lol)... and in truth, any movie that was mad from a book. While some stay more true to the original, at this point in history it's all but impossible to match a movie to a book.

Even though I've been a Star Trek fan since it's inception I'd have to agree that Generations wasn't great -- but Trek V (directed by Shatner) had to be the worst of them all -- no Trek film or Episode has ever lived up to the largess of the whole idea though -- every one of them is a dissapointment -- although the episode of Next Generation called 'Inner Light' came pretty close to hitting the mark...

Agree on Dune, Battlefield Earth -- poorly done --

Anything with Eric Roberts can't be good -- there have been plenty of dogs by Julia too...

Too much bad celluloid out there to hit them all really -- but probably the worst all-time (or at least of recent release) that I can recall was a Sandra Bullock vehicle -- can't recall the title but she was a divorcee trying to make it after her cheating husband leaves her -- yanno -- the tearjerker chick flick variety...big suck.

The Leonardo Decaprio version of "Romeo and Juliet"

That just drove me nuts. I can't believe they let that sappy guy act!

Ah! Some of the movies you people don't like amaze me!
Men in Tights-I thought that one was funny.  
Coyote Ugly- Loved it.
You've got Mail- Just watched it again yesterday.
And Bruce Willis! I LOVE Bruce Willis! Anything w/ him is great! He looks good too..hahaha

BUT...Bad movies...
I hate ANYTHING w/ George Clooney... He is so arrogant I am amazed he breathes the same air we do. Just the fact that he is in the movie would turn me off to it.
Also, anything Sci-Fi.
Alien filled crap. Hate it. BLAH.

blair witch.  that sucked.  i went to see it the night it came out in the theatre and was moking the people that got scared.  it scared my friend so much that she didnt beleive me that it was fake.  

the new Romeo and Juliet.  come on.  they try to make it 20th centry and tough yet they use all the old language.  i mean come on.  i was in a gang till i was 17.  i was lucky and got out but trust me we didnt talk like that     and no we didnt sing and snap our fingers like west side story either hehehehehehehehe  

All I feel is hurt and sorrow, praying it'll all be gone by tomorrow but as tomorrow rolls around, another tear hits the ground.

the only movie that i can think of that made me stand up and pace around the room was the messenger.  the whole thing was just saturated with melodrama.  also, any movie is made worse by the presence of keanu reeves who i can't stand.

Sometimes, the things that go unsaid are the only things worth hearing.

Michael and I have recently run out of decent New Releases to watch at our local rental place, and being that we are on the "unlimited rentals" plan, we have a few more groaners to add:

Nightfall:  Supposedly based on a story by Asimov, this flick DEFINES the genre "B movie" in every way.  It even starred David Carradine (shudder).

Rules of Engagement:  Shame on you, Tommy Lee Jones.  I expect this sort of thing from Samuel L Jackson, but YOU...?

Meet the Parents:  cheap, brainless comedy.  Blech.

Chicken Run:  Mel?  MEL???  You CAN'T be THAT hard up for cash ... I mean, come ON ... claymation?

What Lies Beneath:  This is the worst thing I have ever seen starring Harrison Ford -- and he is one of my FAVORITE actors in the universe.  As far as Michelle Pfiefer flicks, I think even the Witches of Eastwick was better.  The worst part about this thing was that it went on F-O-R-E-V-E-R ...

My friends, I urge you to avoid the aforementioned AT ALL COSTS if you value your sanity.

Now, on to other things ...

Chris, I couls not agree with you more on Battlefield Earth.  John Travolta sucked like a Hoover, and it would be kind to say that the screenplay "lost a lot in the translation" from the novel.  Platform boots and Klingon outfits do not a Psychlo make ...

Ron, same goes for Dune.  I mean, WOW -- what a book.  I suspect the only reason why I didn't despise the movie the first time I watched it was because I had never read the novel; in fact, the flick inspired me to read the book.  Even the "long" version of the movie is missing so much -- so much that there was actually a booklet distributed to patrons when Dune was in the theater to explain some of the concepts and define words that the film had no time to touch on.

And, I would like to conclude by reasserting that Bruce Willis is STILL a terrible actor!

Anything with Jim Carrey in it!  He drives me nuts.  Sorry, but I find his humour so childish, it is offensive!  Not to insult anyone who may like him but...
I loved him when he did In Living Color.  But I can't stand his movies.
