Buried ( Ryan reynaulds) the entire film is him buried in a coffin and that's it.

saladdays66 Sat 17-Feb-18 23:27:44

How weird! See - same question posted earlier today!

Toddlerteaplease Mon 19-Feb-18 18:35:05

My colleague invited me to see one of her all time favourite films. My own private Idaho. OMG it is terrible. No storyline at all. Just absolute rubbish.

Ski40 Sat 24-Feb-18 17:06:47

The Blair Witch Project.Almost walked out of the cinema. Tedious and the female character was the most annoying I have ever seen.

TheQueenOfWands Sat 24-Feb-18 17:09:56

Mrs Doubtfire.

Very sinister but passed off as family film. Gave me the creeps.

They should've ditched the family movie idea and properly gone with the 'Single White Female' vibe and made it a thriller.

QueenOfThorns Sat 24-Feb-18 17:10:41

Moulin Rouge. Just pants.

Janek Sat 24-Feb-18 17:14:36

The Mask. And it cost me £4 to see it because I didn't yet have an NUS card!

obviouslymarvellous Sat 24-Feb-18 17:15:02

Mama Mia - seriously how people rave on about it I have no idea the acting and singing is dire

chicken75 Sat 24-Feb-18 17:24:27

Amazing how different people's opinions are. I like Blair witch, agree about Mrs Doubtfire. Liked (as a one off) Moulin rouge
and despise Mama Mia.
Yet I know most probably disagree grin

Changingagain Sat 24-Feb-18 17:26:40

I think it was calked deep blue or something similar. Just some people floating in the sea for a few hours.

BonnieF Sat 24-Feb-18 17:28:52

No contest. Star Wars Phantom Menace. Not just a kids film, a crap kids film. Irredeemably awful.

The only film I have ever walked out of having paid to watch it.

Movablefeast Sat 24-Feb-18 17:29:13

Agree that Mama Mia is terrible.

What's that musical about L.A. that came out recently? Completely dire.

CiderwithBuda Sat 24-Feb-18 17:31:33

Sharknado. So bad it was hilarious.

Friolero Sat 24-Feb-18 17:33:57

I hated La La Land!

Namethecat Sat 24-Feb-18 17:35:04

I found The shape of Water - meh, The greatest Showman - meh. Lala land - not good. Really enjoyed the Getty one ( can't remember the name )

chemenger Sat 24-Feb-18 17:36:11

Life of Pi.

Vitalogy Sat 24-Feb-18 17:45:46

I watched A River Ran Through it years ago, thought it was crap but maybe I need to look again through my more mature eyes smile

Oow, I love Mrs Doubtfire. And Life Of Pi, beautiful, takes all sorts to make a world though, thank goodness.

Movablefeast Sat 24-Feb-18 18:58:15

Friolero yes La La Land! What a waste of an evening that was. Thank God I was just at home so I could leave the room and make some tea. Totally overhyped yawnfest, I am mystified that it was so popular confused

TheBlob Sat 24-Feb-18 19:01:11

Cloud Atlas. What the fuck is it about? No idea. shock long and tedious.

CarcerDun Sat 24-Feb-18 19:09:55

Also hated La La Land, but the worse ever (and it even eclipsed the flint stones movie in shiteness) was The Insider. Russell Crowe fighting tobacco companies, yawn fest. Only time I ever walked out of a cinema.

Vitalogy Sat 24-Feb-18 19:25:48

Cloud Atlas. What the fuck is it about? No idea. shock long and tedious. Very deep that was, very deep. Maybe watch it again when you're feeling philosophical smile

Skippetydoodah Sat 24-Feb-18 19:27:09

Can I have more than one please? Constantine. Elephant. Mamma Mia.

JesusInTheCabbageVan Sat 24-Feb-18 19:33:03

Buried was brilliant! So tense and gripping.

Arty films like Magnolia, Being John Malkovitch etc put me right off though.

JaneEyre70 Sat 24-Feb-18 19:33:16

Lightheartedly I'd say Mamma Mia - it's the closest I've ever come to walking out of a cinema. I was cringeing for the cast the whole way through and as for Colin Firth in sequins.... it was just so wrong.

Our DDs bf made us watch Rise of the Footsoldier the other weekend. I can truly say it was one of the most appalling disturbing films I've ever watched, and couldn't sit through more than half. For the language and violence. I can't believe it was even made.

JesusInTheCabbageVan Sat 24-Feb-18 19:34:46

Oh, and Into the Wild. DH and I hated it so much we fast-forwarded it so we could watch him die.

elaine26 Sat 24-Feb-18 19:38:29

L.A Confidential DH and I fell asleep in the cinema

IHaveBrilloHair Sat 24-Feb-18 19:40:09

Black Swan.
Giant pile of worthy old boring crap.

Vitalogy Sat 24-Feb-18 19:44:06

Into the Wild lol, one of my favourite films of all time. Profound.

JesusInTheCabbageVan Sat 24-Feb-18 20:58:01

Vita but he's so WHINY!

ShowOfHands Sat 24-Feb-18 21:01:00


WanderingTrolley1 Sat 24-Feb-18 21:03:45

Sideways is hilarious!

greendale17 Sat 24-Feb-18 21:13:13

American Hustle
The Matrix
Wolf of Wall Street

ButteredScone Sat 24-Feb-18 21:15:14


La La Land
The Matrix
Gangs of New York

BakedBeeeen Sat 24-Feb-18 21:19:10

The Holiday

Both of these rom "coms" have the most dire scripts and are cringingly awful to watch!

PS moulin rouge is probably my favourite film ever! But I know it divides opinion. A friend of mine wasn't that keen and I was so incredulous that someone could not find it amazing!

Lanaa Sat 24-Feb-18 21:19:36

Castaway. It's just sooooo tedious.

Vitalogy Sat 24-Feb-18 21:31:09

I'm trying to think when he was being whiny JesusInTheCabbageVan. He was self assured and detached from others which I could sort of see as coming across as annoying. Loved Hal Holbrook's performance, his elderly gentleman friend. One of my favourite bits smile:

I darn't mention another similar film with Reece Witherspoon in - Wild. Am I flogging a dead horse grin

strawberrysparkle Sat 24-Feb-18 21:32:28

Little miss sunshine, does not do what it says on the tin with all the death, corpse theft, porn, drugs and mental illness.

strawberrysparkle Sat 24-Feb-18 21:34:06

Another one called 72 hours or something about a man who chops his arm off as he's stuck! That was awful.

NorksAreMessy Sat 24-Feb-18 21:37:31

I absolutely LOVE Moulin Rouge and can watch it over and over and over again, and sing every song. I properly love it

The worst film EVER is ‘The Pursuit of Happyness’. I adore Will Smith and always will...but sheeeeesh, this was hard going. I just kept waiting for the happy ending and THERE WASNT ONE! Miserable through and through

ThinkOfAWittyNameLater Sat 24-Feb-18 21:45:23

Popeye with Robin Williams. Thankfully on dvd loan from family to "see how awful it is" grin

They were not wrong. We lasted 7 minutes. Shudder

Also, finding Amy or being Amy. I remember Ben Afleck was in it. I wanted to slap all the characters on the back of their legs. Watched it with friends who loved it. I have never trusted their film recommendations since.
Two hours of my life I will never get back. Sigh

obviouslymarvellous Sat 24-Feb-18 21:46:40

Oh and the phantom menace - jah jah bloody binks need I say anything more confused

Also Titanic - the acting is cringeworthy and as soon I as I hear my heart will go on I want to scream

Vitalogy Sat 24-Feb-18 21:48:48

This thread is starting to look like a list of all my favourite films confused
Little Miss Sunshine, 127 Hours, The Pursuit of Happiness, all brilliant.

Vitalogy Sat 24-Feb-18 21:54:13

NorksAreMessy How is this not a happy ending:

Based on a true story of Chris Gardner's life, he became a big success in RL.

playinthedarkness Sat 24-Feb-18 21:55:53

Nacho libre and tropic Thunder, hours of life just gone.

ShowOfHands Sun 25-Feb-18 17:21:00

The Pursuit of Happyness was grim.

Sideways is AWFUL. Wine and infidelity <yawn>

KellyBailey Sun 25-Feb-18 21:44:28

Also, finding Amy or being Amy. I remember Ben Afleck was in it

Gone girl?

nomorespaghetti Sun 25-Feb-18 21:47:46

Pearl harbour!

TheRedHatofPatFerrick Sun 25-Feb-18 21:49:12


TheNavigator Sun 25-Feb-18 21:53:16

How has no one mentioned Sex and the City 2. How? It has to be the worst film ever made. Surely?

Classic Mark Kermode rant about Sex and the City 2

Longdistance Sun 25-Feb-18 21:56:16

Yy to the Matrix. That went straight over my head.

ShowOfHands Sun 25-Feb-18 21:56:39

Chasing Amy.

It's a Kevin Smith film.

irishe Sun 25-Feb-18 21:57:21

Zoo lander

Just awful, not funny at all

goose1964 Sun 25-Feb-18 21:59:20

Santa with muscles or get him to the Greek,both awful in different way

Message withdrawn at poster's request.

MintChocAddict Sun 25-Feb-18 22:08:42

Never Let Me Go with Kiera Knightly. Horribly bleak and utterly shit doesn't even begin to describe it!
Agree Mama Mia. Hate the stage show too. The bit with the flippers on the jetty. Cringe...
Titanic. Kate and Leo looked like Mother and Son. Couldn't really see past that.
Gangs of New York. I lost the will to live multiple times but was trapped in the cinema as was on an early date with now DH.

tinyradish Sun 25-Feb-18 22:12:41

The Hateful Eight & Mamma Mia

Whitney168 Mon 26-Feb-18 20:01:14

Lost In Translation, the dullest thing ever.

overnightangel Mon 26-Feb-18 20:31:01

L.A. Confidential and A River Runs Through It are great.

Worst film ever seen at the cinema (as there’s loads of daytime movie type dross) is a coin toss between Noah and Vanilla Sky

overnightangel Mon 26-Feb-18 20:33:32

Magnolia and Sideways are great too!
In Magnolia Tom Cruise looks like the decent actor like he used to be in a few good men, born on the 4th of July etc before he turned into a dead eyed Scientologist zombie

Asking4afr1end Mon 26-Feb-18 20:53:01

I would go
Titanic (the characters are all terrible people and you end up rooting for the boat)
Mama Mia (were they on glue???)
The Lobster (it felt like I was watching the outtakes of another film)
Lost in Translation (just dull)
Star wars number 2- attack of the clones I think? At least ep 1 had kind of a good pod race. Ep 2 was so much worse.
That's my top 5.

tigercub50 Mon 26-Feb-18 20:57:03

Another vote for Lost in Translation - it lost us completely!

LoislovesStewie Mon 26-Feb-18 21:08:20

Happily for me I mixed seeing a lot of the films mentioned here! But I was forced to watch Salt. Totally boring , trying to be clever and failing. Bit like Mission Impossible, I mean really!What is all that about?

mollied Thu 01-Mar-18 12:37:58

Frozen (not the Disney one) the one where people get stuck on a chair lift over night, its appalling!

ladybirdsarelovely33 Fri 02-Mar-18 21:28:56

The Clearing- despite having Robert Redford and Helen Mirren in it. It is based on a True story so I guess they can't change it too much. I think they just shouldn't have made the film in the first place tbh.

ChristineC320 Sat 03-Mar-18 13:42:49

'Men who stare at goats' it's as shit as it sounds.

justpoppngby Sat 03-Mar-18 13:45:45

The Greasy Strangler.

I can't even....

LidlAngel Sat 03-Mar-18 14:08:24

Hostel. Not bothered by violence per se but this was ridiculous. I've been waiting to give Tarantino a piece of my mind for donkeys years.....

LetsGoFlyAKiteee Sat 03-Mar-18 21:23:12

La la land.. Tried to watch it again. Realised nope I actually don't like it..

The new Annie... That was just dire.

Mulan 2...why is there a Mulan 2?!

theluckiest Sun 04-Mar-18 00:26:14

No question...the Hills Have Eyes remake. I had a physical repulsion to it. We'd gone for Dhs birthday which is the only reason I didn't walk out. Should have ( and gone to the bar next door.)

DH reckons Kevin & Perry Go Large was the biggest sack of shit he's ever seen. He's a huge film buff so takes a lot to make him actively hate a movie that much.

RunRabbitRunRabbit Sun 04-Mar-18 00:29:26

Aliens 3.

La La Land.

Face Off.

Ghost shows age

eloisesparkle Sun 04-Mar-18 18:55:19

I had no idea what was going on.
DH has never let me forget that I suggested it or that I said the critics loved it- they probably did.
In Bruges- again no idea what was going on.
Mamma Mia - I hate schmaltz.

Halvec Fri 17-Aug-18 17:38:11

Agree about The Lobster- how can anyone like it?

luckycat007 Sun 19-Aug-18 02:27:04

Where the wild things are

ThomasShelbysBunnet Sun 19-Aug-18 02:29:43

Phone booth with Colin Farrell. Utter shite.

AllAboutTheStuff Sun 19-Aug-18 02:33:53

Last house on the left. The graphic tape scene and o can usually deal with that sort of stuff but threw it in the bin and will never watch it again.

Don’t like any of the hostels either

ThomasShelbysBunnet Sun 19-Aug-18 02:33:57

Oh but I love Little Miss Sunshine and Moulin Rouge

Heatherjayne1972 Sun 19-Aug-18 22:26:41

Hot tub time machine - there’s two hours of my life I’m not getting back
The Matrix - almost walked out the cinema
Tremors - Kevin bacon - what was he thinking !

LittleCandle Sun 19-Aug-18 22:33:28

Titanic - they could have done the whole movie in 20 minutes and it still would have been far too long.

Saving Private Ryan. XH took me to this as an anniversary treat. I didn't care if they saved the guy, I just wanted it to end.

Charlie's Angels - I slept through most of it.

One of the Saw films, but I did have a migraine, and slept through that, too.

The first two of the middle Star Wars films. DD2 obligingly was hideously sick during the second one and I was able to escape to take her home.

IrenetheQuaint Sun 19-Aug-18 22:37:59

Chasing Amy is indeed shit.

Sleepless in Seattle is my personal worst... Or possibly You've Got Mail.

Giggorata Sun 19-Aug-18 22:43:13

The Dark is Rising.
The Dark is Rising sequence of books by Susan Cooper are wonderful. I longed for years and years for someone to make a film out of them.
And then they made that.
Horrible travesty.
Apparently Susan Cooper herself hated it, too.
Now longing for a decent remake....

vivalafrida Sun 19-Aug-18 22:45:10

There Will Be Blood. I'll never get that 14 hours back.

Inception. Seasickness made into a film.

Mama Mia. I cringed so hard my contracting bumhole stuck to the seat and I had to be levered off.

HerbNotErb Sun 19-Aug-18 22:47:36

Showgirls - had to leave the cinema

3girlmama Sun 19-Aug-18 22:50:28

'eternal sunshine of the spotless mind'
Dreadful film.

sonlypuppyfat Sun 19-Aug-18 22:51:25

The Snowman with Michael fassbender horrendous

TheGirlWhoLived Sun 19-Aug-18 22:53:02

Anybody mentioned Teeth yet?

That’s certainly a film that sticks with you. Main character grows teeth in her.... vulva? Vagina?! Anyhow around that region confused

Pebblespony Sun 19-Aug-18 22:57:33

Rubber. It's about a tyre that rolls around blowing people up. Google it. It's a real film.

TheGirlWhoLived Sun 19-Aug-18 22:59:43

No, I can’t believe rubber is a real film, my brother and I were talking about this yesterday and we reckon it was a film made for Facebook trailer only

nicenewdusters Sun 19-Aug-18 23:07:32

Syriana. I have no clue to this day what it was about or what happened. Only bad film I've seen George Clooney in.

Wimbledon. Can't even think of the words to describe this pile of nonsense.

Mamma Mia. Have only watched a few minutes here and there. People are amazed I don't like it. I'm amazed you don't have to be tied to your chair to watch it.

bellsbuss Sun 19-Aug-18 23:21:46

Moth man Prophecies with Richard Gere, and Blair witch project

elQuintoConyo Sun 19-Aug-18 23:32:22

Straight Story- basically a lot of helicopter shots of fucking fields.

AI. Tripe.

Love Actually - where's the love?

Thor: Rag-anorak (sp?) just had the misfortune to see, utter utter shite.

Oh Brither Where Art Thou

Grindhouse (that the Tarantino one where Kurt Russell kills women in his car? I remember a girl's leg being chopped off).

Twelve Years A Slave.

Lots of time wasted on celluloid rubbish!

BlackAmericanoNoSugar Sun 19-Aug-18 23:37:11

The Sweetest Thing with Cameron Diaz and Selma Blair - just awful!

HotSauceCommittee Sun 19-Aug-18 23:49:34

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind. I can’t even remember what it was about, but I remember it being the shitest film I’d ever seen.

POPholditdown Sun 19-Aug-18 23:53:12

The Devil Wears Prada. It’s such a mundane non story.

RoseMartha Sun 19-Aug-18 23:54:24

Vanilla Sky

YettaTessieMarmelstein Sun 19-Aug-18 23:58:52

Ex DH is an actor and one of his films has been mentioned a few times! (Minor role) He is being especially hideous these days so I’m chortling away!
Titanic, Avatar and Lala Land are mine. I also hated everything Love Actually apart from Emma Thompson.

SorryAuntLydia Mon 20-Aug-18 00:17:40

Seven (7even apparently) was just awful and the ‘shock’ ending was pathetically predictable given that every other female character in the film was a victim... Sexist wank fodder for overgrown misogynists.

Pebblespony Mon 20-Aug-18 19:49:33

Unfortunately I've seen the film Rubber. It's mad.

FuckyDuzz Mon 20-Aug-18 19:59:55

The Bodyguard was horrendous- nothing happened?! At all?! Abd it was so long! How could a film that nothing happened in be so long?!
And don’t even get me started on the lack of chemistry, I think I could’ve filmed more passionate kisses and lingering looks with my goldfish!

I’ve only very recently watched this film for the first time and I’m rather furious that it’s been billed all my life as such a great love story
Tiz shite!

BlueUggs Mon 20-Aug-18 20:04:47

Soul plane. Napoleon dynamite. Not sure I can choose between them tbh!
