Worst movie, ever.

Well, it was closer to the books than the current movies are. That's all I want to have said about that matter/movie, so... Hm... No, I've mentioned all bad movies I know of as of this writing. *Evacuates*

...with a Callsign like mine, I pretty much gotta be.

Now, by way of redirect:

I recall some flick I caught in a hotel while on the road 5-8 years ago called (I kid you not): "Attack of the Killer Bunnies".

It was tremendously bad. I couldn't get past the scene of these "giant" (obviously cheesy trick photography) rabbits overrunning this couple cowering in a farmhouse. It was so bad it was funny, but to've watched further would've been bad investment of my time. Wonder if it ever showed up on MST3K?...

Historical Note: You're still threadjacking. I'm trying to be nice by telling you to shut the heck up before LOAF sees you still being you.

Historical Note: Jebus was also a funny joke from a rather recent episode of the Simpsons and thats a lot more important than a city which is the birthplace of the religion that you attempt to stuff down our throats every few days.

BTW, That "Killer Bunnies" picture you speak of is Night Of The Lepus , a rather famous B-movie.

Bad movies? Well there have been a few that I remember being memorably bad. I agree that Titan A.E. was bad. They attempted to bring Japanese animation into the mainstreem. What we got was...Disney! WTF? As for other movies, Crash. A pornogrophy (ever noticed how many erotic movies are at Blockbust when they say they have none?) about crashing cars for sexual kicks. One I haven't seen, but I think will be shocking, is Clue. Yes, based on the bored, sorry, board game. (In truth, I actually enjoy it). Maybe it's so bad it's good, or it's intended to be bad and satire like. Game to film movies have a history of being bad. Well, here's my take on them.

Super Mario Brothers: Best left to cartoon and game format.

Street Fighter: Everyone else hates it. I, however, loved it. Was in love with Cammy when this came out.

Street Fighter animated: Few complaints here. Maybe Capcom sneaking their name in on trucks or licence plates, but other than that few complaints.

Double Dragon: WTF was that?

Tomb Raider: Not bad. Maybe the best movie based on a game.

Wing Commander: It was alright. Worst movies have come, much worse.

A bit of a rant here. I don't like Angel much in the movie. If I was to choose between Sandra Burrows and Yolanda Jilot, I'd go with Jilot. People who've played the game would recognise her better, and I'm sure she would have worked fine as a young Angel. As for how Burrows worked out, well...despite being a bit wooden she was alright. I didn't like how her character was portrayed. She's good in a few scenes...like her first meeting with Blair, and when she wants to kill Maniac, but that's not Angel. No, she believes that "Justice is decided in the court, not with particle cannons." (Yeah, she has a good ten years experiance and wisdom here, but to me it still clashes). Also, her being horrid with everyone because of Bossman was handled wrong in my view. It could have been done so that we feel rather sympathetic. I was when it happened in the game. But it's pulled off wrong here. Apparently, this is how Chris Roberts wanted Wing Commander. Well, he can have it, I'll stick with the games that I enjoy so much, thank you.

I will never dislike Street Fighter because I've never, ever not liked Raul Julia.

The only problem with it is that Raul Julia uses the SFII arcade controls to attack Jean-Claude duing that speedboat chase.

There were a few things wrong with that movie (like the bad guys having no real menace...have a look at the animated movie or series to see what an evil cunt Bison can be), but it's a good movie. A real life G.I. Joe I heard it called once. And yes, there's no denying the skill of Raul Julia, or, on that note, ever disliked some of the characters from the game.

When I saw Street Fighter, I was very accepting of movies, but even Street Fighter felt a little silly to me. Good thing Kylie's gone back to singing instead. :)

Tomb Raider was okay, for a game to movie thing, anyway. But a bit too weird for me. I think Mortal Kombat was quite good, yay martial arts!

I can't believe I didn't even think of this one until now. Probably a good thing because it was so bad. I was with my friends celebrating the New Year from 1996 to 1997, and among one of the videos we hired was a terrible parody of Jurassic Park: Chicken Park! It was doubly bad because of the porn (which we didn't even know about) and the tiresome juvenile sex references, and... oh it was just plain bad. I'm sure there are loads of movies like this out there, but after watching Get Shorty (which I didn't like either), this felt really, really bad!

I completely forgot about Mortal Kombat and it's sequal, Annihilation. It was silly, full of action, and over the top. In other words, just perfect for the game. Plus I liked the look of who they had play Shao Khan. Remember that he wears a helmet in the game, so they could have used any thick slab of meat, but I felt that Khan in the movie was unique.

Sorry, I seem to have missed where obviousness was an issue, in regards to "worst movie" discussions. :p

That movie where Santa Claus fights Satan with the help of Merlin was way worse anyway.
Never saw it, so I couldn't comment... besides noting that the whole anagram thing must've really p*ssed Santa off to make him fight anyone. ;)

On a tangential note, in regards to "worst movie", the people writing the IMDb reviews have to be among the stupidest people ever, and given the internet in general that's no small feat. No matter what the movie qualtiy, whether Oscar material or... umm, not, there's always at least one "worst film ever" post, and usually multiple posts of that type. It's places like there (and here, to a somewhat lesser extent :p ) that make me wish there was an IQ test required for internet access.

Mind you, I think some of y'all's comments on movies are stupid, too, but I won't get into that here. If you're really interested in my views try to find me on #wingnut when dalnet isn't being so a55tacular.

You know, I found it sad that RJ's movie swansong (not counting the 1995 TV movie) was SF. I mean, to have a video game movie (and one that wasn't that great a movie, at that) as his final curtain call seems like a weak send-off for a guy whose movie career, at the time of his death, had been going for 2 decades.

This isn't really about a "worst movie ever" or anything, but who else thought that Spider-Man was just a little too corny? I mean I liked it a lot (even bought the DVD yesterday), but some of the scenes were just a little too over the top for me.
