Have you ever done this stupid thing?

Have you ever watched a movie so ridiculous and nonsensical that you HAD to watch it 'till the end to see how it ends?

I've just tortured myself through 'Splatter'. Utter codswallop, but I had to watch it all the way through. I already know IBU. Grin

Anyone else ever do this?

Not a film but read ‘the Road’ and was certain that something was going to happen at some point but it never did.

I watched 'Cokneys Vs Zombies'! It was like being stuck in Danny Dyers head!

The film 'Sausage Party.'

Biggest load of shit I have ever seen.

Had to watch it til the end though, in case it got better. (It didn't)

Waste of an hour and a half of my life.

I thought that book was amazing, Harrykanesrightsock and INCREDIBLY harrowing.

but yeah, bad films and LOADS of bad books (especially if they're book group ones - you have to have finished them so you can slate them thoroughly)

If you think Mama Mia the film is bad you havent seen the stage show. At least the film had gorgeous scenery .
Kept waiting for it to come to life - worst £60 ever spent .

The Scorpion King.

Fuck me, was that a load of shit.

Watching it all the way through is an act of self abuse.

Some M. Night Shyamalan tripe about a train...

Saw it in the cinema in Glasgow as a student and it was SO bad that people started shouting out ad-libs. Ended up being a hilarious Glaswegian comedy session instead, which was much more deserving of my student fiver.

I've developed a bad habit of watching the first 8-10 minutes and then sparing myself the dreck in the middle and moving to the last 10mins or so (I might go back another couple of minutes if it doesn't seem the right point).

I rarely miss anything relevant.

M. Night Shyamalan!

Bloody hell, that reminds me, "The Visit".

Terrible.

What's with all the senior shitting into adult diapers and hiding them in the barn bollocks and naked mental at night granny. My god, the scenes where "grandpa" shits himself at the table and later on where he shoves his shit filled diaper in the young boys face.

Urgh...shudder.

That's not horror, neither actual nor psychological, it's just disgusting for disgusting's sake.

Shyamalan got a scat fetish or something.

This was the chap who made Signs and The Sixth Sense for fuck sake.

I have this affliction of seeing the good in everybody and it does me no favours when it comes to awful films. I (nearly) always give the director the benefit of the doubt and wait around thinking surely this shit must get better at some point. Can't tell you the number of times I was still waiting when the credits started to roll.

I'm not sure that my habit is any better. I stop watching in good time, but then spend lots of energy wondering whether I should go back and watch the end after all.

Actually there was one film I watched about two years ago, all but the last 15 minutes. It was so rubbish that I kept thinking something interesting was going to happen. The premise, as presented in the first 20 minutes, was good, but then it was left lying there completely undeveloped. Even after I stopped watching it, I kept wondering how it finished. I kept it on my Netflix playlist forever because I thought I might watch the end. I've finally deleted it from my playlist now, but I still wonder.

13 Erotic Ghosts

During my night feeding days. Flicking through Sky and I stopped on that purely based on the title. Absolute shite, and fucking hilarious, I highly recommend it!

Oh and any number of modern B movies......Ghost Shark, Sharktopus, anything involving a Megladon or a giant crocodile.

Sat through all of the English patient even though I was bored within 20 minutes.

Repeatedly tried to watch that Lisa Bonet, voodoo film, why? I don’t know, I never made it more that 10 minutes before falling asleep.

Oh! I should be ashamed to admit this but I watched all of that caterpillar film, where the people were surgically attached to each other. Absolutely disgusting with no redeeming qualities.
