1. Philosophy of a Knife (2008)
It lasts for 250 minutes and it's a black and white documentary/torture porn mix with atrocious dialogue, camerawork that reminds me of Eraserhead and music out of Tetsuo. Exactly the type of stuff you want to spend four hours of your life watching.

2. The Leaning Tower (2006)
The people who made this movie are as retarded as the main character.

And it shows!

3. Salò or the 120 Days of Sodom (1975)
Someone once said that it's alright to question the existence of Salo as being nothing but pointless scenes of torture intercut with pseudophilosophical babble. I agree with that perspective, and to me, this movie is nothing but that.

5. Burlesque (2010)
The worst musical of all time? Maybe not, but this is so attrocious I can't hold back on putting it here. Burlesque is abominable. It's a really boring Coyote Ugly-remake that doesn't even know what burlesque is and so it substitutes the real thing with weird Pussycat Dolls-style dance routines made soooooo burlesque by the trumpets added to the songs. Whaaat

6. The Room (2003)
Tommy Wiseau! At the same time this is one of those movies you love watching because it's so horrible, but it's also absolutely awful to watch as it had a budget of millions of dollars and none of it shows up on-screen. It's cult reputation is deserved but I still hate it.

7. Violent Shit (1989)
Just look at the title. It pretty much explains itself. But then when you watch it the gore is so crappy that all you have left in the end is Shit. That'd be an appropiate title. And this thing spanned four sequels!

8. Halloween: The Curse of Michael Myers (1995)
I love Halloween and most of it's sequels even though they all suck. It's my favourite slasher series. But this movie is just sooooooo horrible that it even beats movies like Jason Takes Manhattan and NOELS 5 in being the worst slasher sequel ever made.

9. Theodore Rex (1995)
Whoopi Goldberg sports a leather outfit and is a sidekick in a sci-fi thriller to a human-sized dinosaur that makes tail jokes and is the son of Udo Kier.

It isn't really even nearly as awesome as that sounds. It just sucks.

I wrote a review of this, but in short Bay has managed to make a movie based on watching his kids play around with Transformers figurines and it shows.

11. If You Love (2010)
It's a finnish musical that's not only racist, insensitive, thoroughly demoralising and absurdly bad, it also uses amnesia as a plot twist. And they shot a scene outside my former local library. I hate that place now.

12. The Boondock Saints (1999)
A montage-like film that is more or less perfect to everyone around the age of 15, but becomes wholly abominable at a later age. The dialogue is very much what is considered "cool" by teenagers and the action scenes consist of "cool" dudes in "cool" slow-motion standing in a "cool" way completely still while shooting their "cool" guns while occasionally showing how people fall down screaming and dying in "cool" slow-motion. This film tries so obnoxiously to be "cool" that it instead becomes CP.

13. Lost Highway (1997)
It's Lynch at his absolute worst. He becomes so embroiled within this personal universe that he seems to have forgotten that this is supposed to be a movie. It has a cool scene or two and Balthazar Getty is a great actor, but none of it really serves any purpose in a way that would feel meaningful, let alone good.

14. Forrest Gump (1994)
Forrest Gump is a terrible movie filled with nonsenical platitudes, retarded character portrayals and obnoxious "comedic" moments sidelining historical milestones. It just plain sickens me. I appreciate the message but especially Hanks just goes way over in his portrayal so that none of it works. The stereotypical portrayal of EVERYTHING doesn't help either.

15. Bad Boys II (2003)
It's Bay and it's shit. Black men dressed in KKK outfits and driving through poor cities killing the livelyhoods of millions of people and rats fucking and color contrasts that kill my eyes don't make for a good movie.

18. The Brown Bunny (2003)
It's Gallo's masterpiece. It does exactly what he wants it to do. It makes all of us hate him because it's a horrible movie that climaxes in a scene where he essentially says "Haha I'm a talentless hack and you suck and I get BJs from hot women". I gladly go in on the joke and give him one star because this movie sure does deserve it.

19. Precious (2009)
A film that I was shocked to watch. Not because it's shocking in nature in a good way, but because it paints an incredibly stereotypical picture of the stupid african american population and does so with such gleeful joy that it becomes truly offensive. The scenes between Precious and her mother become slapsticky as the two exchange television set blows, and Precious steals a huge bucket of KFC. I think this movie would never have been hailed as very good if it was directed by a white person, and I say that with no ill intent meant. This movie is just Troma-worthy, and I mean Bloodsucking Freaks, not Combat Shock.

20. Predator (1987)
It's very gay. I mean you can like it all you want but Carl Weathers and Arnie stripping their clothes magically off scene by scene while walking around the jungle making sexy poses every five steps that showcase their oiled muscles is really just overtly assaultingly homosexual.
VierasTalo's rating:


 

Title says it all. From worst to... well, a bit less horrible but absolute garbage nonetheless.

EDIT: So this list might be outdated but it's so fab in it's provocateur-nature I'll leave it here.

Too subjective.

Very funny.
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Jan 2 19:01
Voting solely for the fact that Forrest Gump is on here. It made my worst films list too, and apparently we're in the minority on that.
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Jan 2 21:27
Predator ei ole homoelokuva! Se on... miehinen!
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Jan 2 22:08
@darko082 Yeah I mean sweet Jesus if people stopped thinking like each other and start being subjective we might get some pretty horrible stuff in this world like, god forbid, originality and different opinions!

@the giraffe Thank you so very much for showing support. I still have a hard time believing that so many people think that film is actually good.
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Jan 2 23:15
I just wanted to say ... subjective does not mean it's true, maybe these films are bad to you, but that's your taste ... maybe you should write this in list name "My The Worst of the Worst"
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Jan 2 23:18
Agree with all except Predator, that movie was frickin' awesome!
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Jan 2 23:20
@darko082 I'd rather assume that people who frequent this site aren't stupid enough to assume that one individual on the site would attempt to make a list that is all-encompassing, containing movies that every person in this world hates. By default, lists such as these are subjective and not ultimate. They are opinions. Just like when someone posts a list of the best films of the year or something. Putting a "My" to the beginning of any of these lists to me would certainly be nothing but belittling towards anyone who reads the lists and downright insulting towards them.
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Jan 3 12:31
- Your comment on Predator was just great ! Even if I personally really like this movie, there are definitely some homosexual undertones. Well done!

- I definitely agree on Lost Highway and Forrest Gump. I don't hate them but there are definitely overrated (if you want, you can check my list : http://www.listal.com/list/top-10-most-overrated-movies)

- Don't pay to much attention about the so-called "subjective" debate... It's a free world! At least, you gave some pretty good arguments explaining why you hate those movies so much. That's good enough for me!
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Jan 18 11:46
Ovatkohan Predator, ja Lost Highway mukana vain sen takia että on pakko laittaa joku arvostettu elokuva listalle? Kommentit ja mielipiteet niistä ovat ok, mutta leffojen laittaminen maailman paskimmat-listalle tuntuu suhteettomalta.

Itse en muista, että Predator olisi perus kasarileffaa hintahtavampi. Lihaksekkaat ja hikiset miehet eivät mielestäni vielä tee siitä homoelokuvaa. Jos olet tuota mieltä, niin miksi Barbaarit, tai Painajainen Elmstreetillä 2 ovat mielestäsi parempia?
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Jan 18 15:20
Eiköhän se arvostettujen leffojen kiintiö tullut täyteen jo Salon, Forrestin ja Preciousin myötä :) Provollahan tämä koko lista on voideltu (etenkin Predator nyt on lähinnä sisäpiirin vitsi-tasoinen valinta ja siksi niin hännillä listalla). Lost Highway on listalla juuri siksi, että odotin siltä huomattavasti enemmän kuin sain. Sen katseleminen oli erittäin surullinen kokemus tunnetasolla ihan vain siksi että se oli melkolailla skeidaa paria itsenäisesti toimivaa kohtausta lukuunottamatta, ja tämän mieleeni jättämän tunteen vuoksi laitoin sen listalle. Predator ei ole homoelokuva siksi, että siinä on lihaksikkaita ja öljyttyjä miehiä (niitä tosiaan on about jokaisessa kasarileffassa), vaan siksi, että ne ovat hyvin, hyvin prominentissa osassa leffaa. Lähes puolissa otoksista joissa Weathers ja Arska ovat, tuntuu siltä että he poseeraisivat Playgirlin kannessa. Siksi ihmettelen suuresti sitä, että leffa on saanut melko kovan maineen ns. miehisenä elokuvana. Ovathan toki muutkin ns. miehiset elokuvat varsin homoeroottisia, mutta niissä ne yleensä kumpuavat esim. buddycop-tyylisistä tilanteista joissa miehet ovat keskenään kenties vähän turhankin läheisiä. Predatorissa tuo homous kumpuaa täysin ulkoelokuvallisista seikoista, kuten juuri siitä että vaatteita katoaa ilman syytä jotta öljytyt muskelit tulisivat esille. Voihan sen toki nähdä heteroseksuaalisenakin jos toivottu katsojakunta olisi se kauniimpi sukupuoli, mutta kun leffa on tehty "miesten makuun" ja se sisältää noin paljon out-of-contextia homoeroottista materiaalia, siitä tulee vähän hämmentynyt olo ainakin minulle.
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Jan 18 19:03
Joo, onhan Salo ja Forest Gump myös arvostettuja. Niitä ei tullut mainittua, koska niistä en itsekään hirveästi välitä. Preciousista taas en tiedä mitään. Jos listasi oli osittain provoa, niin sitten ymmärrän valinnat jotenkuten. On meinaan hauska joskus itsekin dissatan muiden kehumia leffoja. Ja Son of the Mask on ihan aiheesta tuolla.

Outoa vaan, että mulla ei ole mitään muistikuvaa Predatorin hintahtavuudesta. Muistan vaan että jotain hikisiä muskeleita siinä oli lähikuvassa. Hyvän elokuvan mielestäni siitä tekee agressiivinen ja jännittävä tunnelma. Myös hirviötä näytetään katsojalle sopivan säästelijäästi, niin kuin kunnon trillereissä on tapana.
Posted: 3 years, 6 months ago at Jan 19 13:44
Precious onkin nykyään melkolailla unohdettu, mutta ilmestyessään sitä ylistettiin käsittämättömissä määrin. Minullakaan ei ollut muistoja siitä, että Predator olisi ollut noin häiritsevän homosteleva, kunnes rewatchin sen vuosi tai pari sitten. Enkä siis anna sille kahta tähteä siksi, että se on melkoista homostelua (tuo ominaisuus ottaa arvosanasta enintään yhden tähden pois), vaan en erityisemmin muutenkaan arvosta sitä. Kylätoimintakohtauksen jälkeen Arskan yksinjäämiseen tuo on varsin hyvä elokuva, mutta ennen sitä ja sen jälkeen sitä on vähän tylsä seurata. Mielestäni tunnelmaa ei varsinaisesti rakenneta millään tehokeinoilla, mitä nyt kävellään viidakossa ja välillä näytetään hirviön POVia.
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Feb 28 13:27
Wait, so Philosophy of a Knife contains a bunch of Tetsuo like music... damn it, see, now you've got me back interested in a movie I had finally decided I never need to watch. Ok, so I guess it's really not worth it. I'll stay away from that one. (As well as 120 Days..)

Ha, "It's Bay and it's shit." Best.Line.Ever.

Oh, and glad to see you just tear the hell out of Boondock Saints. I didn't hate it as much as you did, but can definately appreciate your take on it!

Gotta say though, I got a kick out of all the homoeroticism going on in Predators! So many other action movies have the same things at work, but in a more covert way. Predators was just shamelessly 'big muscles, big guns' in such an in-your-face, unapologetic way that I found it oddly charming. Hmmm... maybe that's just me.

Anyway, great stuff here! Well done.

While I do agree with all but 2 movies on this list it's kinda pointless to argue why I disagree with these two movies (Bad Boys II and Predator) only because this is someone's opinion and to each their own, right? Arguing or getting into a debate about it just seemingly pointless considering it's not like they are trying to force their opinions on you. But hey, do what you like every one has free will.

And I mean this in the best possible way not to be a bitch, fyi.
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Mar 3 15:01
Hi, thanks for the comment. Alas, I don't quite get it though. I don't see debates or arguements as competitions aimed to change the other person's mind about something, but moreso conversation about the film and whatnot meant to broaden both perspectives one way or another. I don't consider it pointless if two people "argue" over what they like and the other doesn't, as it will indefinately broaden their horizons and film knowledge. Discussion of opinions is in my opinion pivotal in this hobby. And I guess you meant that if someone comments on my list I shouldn't comment back on it, but you know, I think I honestly should. They opened the channel to discussion by commenting and I'm replying to that comment with another one. None of it is done in spite or with mean spirit, but with aim to generate more discussion and truly discuss film. I'd hardly refer to that as pointless :)
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Mar 3 15:31
Great list, and I'm baffled by the responses about how it's "too subjective" or whatever. You don't need to preface it with "My blahblah" or "In my opinion" anywhere, as it's obviously implied by virtue of being *your* list and your use of subjective terms like "worst."

Opinions aren't sacrosanct, folks. They don't have some special immunity from criticism, and I suspect VierasTalo would much rather hear what we think of his selections.
Posted: 3 years, 4 months ago at Mar 3 19:40
LOL that's great. Sorry, but Predator is macho, not gay. There was a time when men could pose topless in movies because they were showing off some muscles, not trying to appeal to oversexed 12 year old girls like Twilight. How is that more gay than some comic book hero posing in tight spandex? Back in the 80s men were not as homophobic I suppose...

i have seen only one film out of here that is salo. ughh, anyways happy i have not seen any other movies :) enjoyed your comments! :)
Posted: 2 years, 7 months ago at Nov 27 2:54
Forrest Gump is a bad movie due to the fact that it doesn't coincide with the book. The book has so much more detail and so much more happens in the book. The movie isn't half as good.
Posted: 2 years, 4 months ago at Mar 24 2:01
Agree with Salo, Son of the Mask, and some other movies on this list, but i enjoyed Lost Highway. Just in my opinion.:)
Posted: 1 year, 5 months ago at Feb 15 12:49
Wow! I think you're the first person I've come across who has hated Predator, Boondock Saints AND Forrest Gump. I liked all three myself. ;D

On the other hand I tried watching both Precious and Burlesque
yet couldn't even finish either of them.

I have to say, I saw 'Boondock Saints' on here and thought "Noooooo...." It's one of my all-time favorites, but I'm a sucker for an action flick about Irish guys who are essentially a mixture between comic book heroes (the Punisher comes to mind) and the Blues Brothers (being on a mission from 'God' and all).

When I worked at a video store, I made everyone rent this movie. So, I'm sorry you don't see what I see in it, but it is what it is. That said, your list is highly amusing, as always. :)
