Currently have Sweeney Todd on.

OK so i might not manage to actually live through it which makes me subject title a bit misleading but I've succeeded in keeping it on for over 19 mins purely because I've so far been shocked ridged that a film the cast it has can be so so very awful.

Not sure awful even does it justice

Bless the Child. Here

Still holds the award for the only film I have ever slept through at the cinema.

Its a fantastic story, but if its the TIm Burton one with Jonny Depp, then its gruesome, and a bit too much for my liking but I watched it cos its such a good story. I saw on stage and it was brill.

The film I sat through and wished i hadnt bothered was Wild at Heart. CRAP

Alvin and the Chipmunks 2

I've sat through some bad films but for some reason this one grated more.

Dc loved it though confused

Ace Ventura: Pet Detective. My little brother made me watch it at the cinema. I have still not forgiven him.

Recently we rented 'Get him to the greek'.
With about an hour and a half left I just thought "fuck this I could be asleep by now" and we knocked it off.

Don't think I've ever turned a dvd off before- usually too stingy! But I just couldn't justify being wrecked in the morining just to watch such shite...

Wild at Heart and Sweeney Todd are both excellent (insert everyone-has-different-taste disclaimer of choice here).

The worst film ever made is The Room. But that's brilliantly enjoyable, whereas the most turgid pointless pile of shite I've ever had to sit through was the recent version of Brideshead Revisited.

really op?

I saw it in the cinema and loved it!

nikki1978 Fri 07-Jan-11 19:14:26

The Thin Red Line - awful awful film and so bloody long too. Was in the cinema with friends family who had paid so couldn't even leave!

nikki1978 Fri 07-Jan-11 19:15:04

Oh and Get Him to the Greek is generally shite but there is one very funny 10 min scene about an hour in grin

seanbonbon Fri 07-Jan-11 19:18:06

Ha haha!
If ONLY I had stuck it out....
Thats what I get for being weak. grin

get him to the greek was a steaming pile of caca!!

The Recruit (dreadful spy thing with Pacino and Colin Farrell). Went to see it as a Watch With Baby thing, but fortunately DD threw up all over me about an hour and a half in, so I was spared the end.

Pearl Harbour. Wooden acting all round. Great planes though.

I once had to sit through TMNT.

I had to take ds2 and when we got there we were literally the only people in there. I had bought front row aisle seats as ds2 needs to be away from people. He wouldn't let me move him to empty more comfortable ones.
At one point a woman brought in a screaming baby. It was a brief yet blessed relief .

Glitter. Still not over it.

The Waterboy.
No no, actually Little Nicky. Fucking hell what dross

blowninonabreeze Fri 07-Jan-11 19:25:33

AI. The only film ever that has moved DH and I to actually leave the cinema (so in that sence I suppose I didn't live through it - and thus should not have posted)

May well have dubious taste though, as I really enjoyed Alvin and the Chipmunks The squeakual over Christmas blush

Tremors shock utter bollocks!

headfairy Fri 07-Jan-11 19:26:34

saw something dreadful with Keanu Reeves and Sandra Bullock, the Lake House or something, really really dull and simpering.

notheroldie Fri 07-Jan-11 19:28:12

I loved The Recruit !

I'm currently trying to understand Inception. Its good but darned confusing!

Matrix... utter wank.
