  • Movies Not Worth Watching

    A thread to discuss the films that would likely be a waste of your time.

    Green Zone (Matt Damon):
    Just switched it off after 17 minutes. The poorly scripted dialogue and clearly Matt-centric direction this was headed was enough to end it early. Also, I didn't mind the camera work on the Bourne movies, even the last one... but this was indeed migraine-cam. Avoid.

      some people might really stone me to death with this

      but

      PREDATORS

      i loved the original films (yes even number 2)
      hated the avp series

      this was supposed to be a comeback.

      insults your damn intelligence tho...

      starts out ok, with some nostalgia.

      then descends to stupidty beyond stupid

        didnt have any real issue with predators - i found it really enjoyable because it was exactly what the first one was: an alien huntfest in a jungle - if you were looking for more you went to the wrong movie

          Funny, I was having a conversation about terrible movies about 2 minutes before i looked at this thread.

          My top two picks in order:

          Nick of Time.
          Any Given Sunday.

            From Paris From Love (John Travolta).

            Easily one of the very worst films I can remember seeing. It tops Transporter 3, and even The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008 remake).

            Poorly shot, poorly scripted and lacking originality to the nth degree. Wholly and absolutely fucking terrible. Jonathan Rhys Meyers was particularly face-palm worthy, what a terrible co-star, and an all-round terrible actor.

            Fuck. I can't believe I just wasted 93 minutes of my life. I need to wash my eyes out with sandstone and bleach. Fuuuck.

                    :p how about we keep it to modern movies (eg within past 5 years) ...

                    Anyways for me I thought the Green Zone was good, though you needed to watch more then 17 miinutes to understand the movie and like Inception it does take its time to get into the movie.

                    So a movie to stay away from would be:
                    Any dance movies (Step Up, Save the Last Dance and so forth)
                    Killers (new)

                      No, you're right, Green Zone was good. Indicated by the 55% review average.

                          There are always exceptions to any rule.

                          However those two aren't.

                            The Castle is so, so fucking win.

                            And no Chycophy - I'm suggesting that the average of hundreds of reviews is generally a reasonable indication of the film's quality. At least, in my experience it has been.

                            Perhaps I should have paid attention to the 36% average for From Paris With Love before watching.
