However, worst movie that you have seen? I suspect you just had very high expectations from the animated series.

I watched the cartoon at 36. It's aimed at kids, sure, but it's a pretty good series overall.

Of course, having Mick Foley voice a one shot braggadocious "fighter" named The Boulder was just perfect.

The Boulder does return to do what The Boulder does best. Talk about The Boulder in the third person...

Also, TLA the movie is definitely up there as the worst movie ever. Not only does it completely spit in the face of anything to do with the original series, but the acting is wooden and the CGI is awful.

Yes, he plays Uncle Iroh. Uncle Iroh is amazing.

Uncle Iroh is a lusty pervert. He groped Jun the bounty huntress woman when she was paralyzed by her own pet! Groped her. Zuko and Azula are right: His Royal Tea-Loving Kookiness is a crazy old pervert man.

He's a flawed character, and that was a disappointment and a failure of his character. Much like all other characters on Avatar, he's nuanced and complex and isn't a purely good person.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians but I don't think it really counts since I watched it after seeing it at the top of a "worst movies" list. It was pretty bad tbqh.

Ah ah so you saw it at the top of that list and decided to watch it? Was there some motive other than try to win the thread? Alas I don't think we have defined the winning conditions for this game.

Does he conquer their hearts and make them good kids? Do they call him out on not giving them stuff on christmases before?

I enjoy a good terrible movie from time to time. Like, I can say Next is really one of the worst films I've seen in the cinema, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. On the other hand Cars is one of the very few movies I actually walked out on because it was so bad.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is mostly hampered by having a budget of like five dollars, plus the standard-issue B-movie Odious Comic Relief. But it's at least kind of endearingly crappy in that school-play sort of way.

I watched it years ago, way before I joined the forum.

I think even if the cartoon didn't exist at all, this would still be considered a really awful movie. The fact that it is also a bastardization of a really excellent media certainly adds insult to injury, but it's still a bad movie in terms of plot, characterization, acting, pacing, special effects... pretty much every metric of filmmaking there is.

Kill Bill: Volumes One and Two were... like violence pornography. Discussion of details why re: worst film you've/I've seen in spoilers.

Spoiler:
Beatrix just gets abused by men for no reason. Men shoot her while she pregnant, beat her up, r*** her and... she just gets through ALL of it every time? She's like super human durable, she can fight over eighty crazed gangsters at a time... how she do that yo? AND Elle is just sadistic and cruel, killing her own partners and some monk guy who was Beatrix's master once JUST because he was mean to her at dinnertime? And the assassins, I know they paid to be lethal snakelike women and men yet: Why can't they ever, ever be nice to each other? And Bill is heartless, he chases B all over America, Japan... and other places... he never forgives her for making him think she's dead WHEN HE was the one that shot her so. Elle puts snakes in Budd's briefcase to double-cross him and steal B's Hanzo sword.

I just wish that... Bill woulda forgave B for leaving him, it's not her fault she pregnant, no woman ever chooses to get knocked up outside of very specific, commonly fertility related reasons, or wanna settle down and. SHE, Beatrix, wanna settle down so: LET HER GO BILL. She's not your trainee girl anymore, Pai Mai taught her more than you ever did anyways, and he not even an assassin except... when people don't nod back re: respecting his authority. ANYWAYS: Bill needs to leave a woman alone, forever, stop chasing her w/all his ppls and. That assassin team needs to be disbanded, or turn into a charity call girls' services, or something. It was just a parade of tragedy, after scandal, after injustices and... worst film you've/I've seen recently.

Haha, I love Kill Bill. It makes sense within its own universe where things are exaggerated (especially the sound effects). I'll agree that most of the cruel characters aren't particularly likeable, and so Vol. 2 isn't as great because of all the talking. But O-Ren Ishii and Gogo Yubari in Vol. 1 are highly entertaining.

"Violence pornography" is a term I'd apply to films that seems to exist only for the purpose of showing violence, and not for making a homage to martial arts films or telling a character's life story or anything else that Kill Bill does. The Beyond (1981) comes to mind as the plot is laughable. Most of the Saw sequels aren't much better.

LOL Saw WORST FILM I've seen too. Like, they just set up elaborate death traps everywhere, and that dude was a terminal cancer patient so how he get the energy, time, and man and woman powers to build those elaborate death traps? Gruesome scenes that make me sick everywhere. The Jigsaw guy is painted as an unsung hero for FORCING PPLS TO LIKE THEIR LIVES W/TRAUMAS... no, that won't make me value my life more, that shall just make me afraid that Jigsaw shall come back and hurt me it WON'T make me appreciate life. And that woman who was his apprentice? Totally crazy and sad... she was the only one I really liked as a character... and it was just parade of shocking death scenes, after torture scenes, after murdering and death traps scenes... violence pornography all over the places. </3 ;_;

The Saw movies don't seem to add anything of value to movie culture, and that might make them worse than anything Mystery Science Theater 3000 ever helped people suffer through.

I thought the first one was decent. Not over-the-top gory, quite interesting and well executed. After that it was a pure gore-fest of course.

Samurai Cop. Amazingly bad in literally every way.

Re: Saw films - they're a bit torture porn-y, but they also have some decent Cronenbergian elements. At least the first... 3? have some nice twists and turns regarding character development, and they seem to be somewhat reasonable extensions of the movie Seven.

I've been going through the available Rifftrax on Amazon Prime, and watched this one. Wow, yeah it was terrible. And did I miss something - why the hell was he called samurai cop? My memory isn't good, but didn't the bad guy have a sword, and the cop never did? That's like, the main thing about being a samurai, besides all the bushido stuff.

A legit contender.

I still say putting a camera on a tripod and shooting paint dry for 2 hours is not a bad movie, it's just one of the laziest movies you could make. They're totally different. To truly be bad you need to have access to lots of funds and talent and development time and writing and still make complete trash. You have to destroy something people care about, ruin more than just a few hours worth of time. You have to set your sights high, very high, and fail miserably, very miserably.

I am still partial to the massive scope and massive failure of "The Postman" but "The Last Airbender" deserves some serious extra credit for walking all over the source material.

Funny Games it about rich, white boys that... be mean to an entire family, harm them... mortally and: Get away with it. They start doing it again to other families. They made bad, awful jokes about lit fictions and... did mean things to a women, girls, and men and boys. And play loud music while they rampages through their homes. And they even hate each other very much and the dominant one bullies the submissive one. It's just a terrible, worst movie I've seen recently.

I'll bite: was there anything in particular that drew you to watch Funny Games? Everything I've read about it suggests that the film's creators quite deliberately set out to make something thoroughly uncomfortable to watch, which sort of puts it into a different category of badness.

Epic Movie, the only movie I consciously picked out to see (I was 15 and didnt know better) and found out the hard way how bad it was. Quit at about 20 mins in.

I watch it 'cause like, I like, bad scary horror/psychological thriller movies sometimes. And it was: So, so badness and cringe-worthy. On purposes too? I just... wanted to see how bad it was? I didn't even hear any of the press I just had it turn on while mommy was watching her television set. And it made me feel thoroughly gross, kinda violate, and was... a terrible, worst film I've seen recently for the multiple, multiple needless cruelties of the rich white torturer boys and how they treat the families they torture? NO ONE: No woman, girl, boy or man... deserves what they did to them? SO my femininely feelings about that movie for you. <3 :D
