Thread: TOTALLY RUBBISH films you've watched recently...

  1. #1

    Red face TOTALLY RUBBISH films you've watched recently...

    I'll kick-off with:

    'Transformers - Age of Extinction'. The critical reviews have ALL been so damningly negative, I just had to watch it. :)

    What a waste of 165 minutes of my life. :( Nothing redeeming about it at all. Cr@p script, cr@p story, loud, confusing, loud, mindless action and did I mention LOUD?!!

    Special effects sci-fi/Superhero blockbusters can be done really well (Avengers Assemble, Xmen First Class, Batman, etc). Michael Bay needs to take some lessons from these.

    Teeth on Netflix.

    What were they thinking? Who actually pitched that idea to backers and got funding for it?

    Horror?
    Comedy?
    Porn?
    New art?

    Who knows but it is very bad.

    The Cabin in the Woods.

    Total garbage. Probably the worst film I've seen in at least ten years. There are very very few films I would give one star or less but this is one of them. Lord knows how it's got a rating of 7 on IMDB.

    To be honest, quite a lot of Netflix content is complete crap!

    On the other hand, I watched "Primer" on Netflix - a short-ish movie about a couple of engineers who invent a time travel device. Really good film but so complicated, I had to have the internet explanation in front of me when I watched it a second time! Recommended.

    Was unsure about this film, my eleven year old son watched it when he went to a friends on a sleep over, wife and I sat to watch it and were horrified to know that someone else's parents thought this was suitable for eleven year olds to watch at a sleep over. It was a wake up call about how little control we have what our sone does or sees when he's out of our house.

    This Is The End.......utter,complete,self indulgent crap. I only watched it because I was on a night shift and downloaded the wrong film to my Ipad and had nothing else to watch. I can't stand Seth Rogen and his little band of sycophantic look-at-me's.

    (I actually meant to watch The Worlds End,which is superb. Unlike the aforementioned rubbish.)

    Sabotage, Arnies latest has to be up there with one of the worst I've seen.
    Special mention to Adam Sandlers and Drew Barrymores film Blended. Moronic dross that keeps you watching because it just has to get better, right? Nope, not a bit of it.

    I never know why people watch bad films? By averaging reviews, Rotten Tomatoes is pretty accurate at letting you know how good a film will be...I couldn't be bothered wasting 2+ hours of my life on a poor film.

    Absolutely.
    Sometimes a film can be so bad it is entertaining - anything made by the Asylum for example.

    Sharknado. Crap but such a cult following that there's now a few of them. You must watch it on Sci-Fi channel on Sky.

    Oh, and Skyfall - utter crap.

    Snowpiercer: terrible implausible comic book story which translated badly to film (as many of them do). Mrs Tweedy out of 'Chicken Run' makes an appearance...

    Can't remember if it was the 2nd or 3rd transformer film but I stopped watching it about one third the way through as it just seemed utterly pointless and boring. These films do make huge amounts of money though so what do I know?

    Read the reviews, so went to watch it to see if it was as bad as they said - it really wasn't the worst thing you'll ever see.

    Maybe, but it is very close to the bottom of the pile, it had one screening at our local cinema with less than 30 of us in there!

    Luckily I have an unlimited membership so could go and see as many films as I like, most of the others left to get their money back in the first 30 minutes!

    The only other film that this happened in was The Tree of Life, not Brad Pitt's finest hour.

    The Purge.
    Absolute B movie, but not bad enough to be good. Total destruction of a neat idea. Bad casting, crappy acting - so much so I wanted them all to die, and totally unconvincing story and twists.

    As per usual there was nothing on TV last night so watched this, wish I'd just gone to bed instead.

    "Now you see me".

    Just coming towards the end of this film as we speak. It is utter dross.

    cabin in the woods is a great concept and excellent original film.

    I love the idea that it is the origin of all horror films

    Shark in Venice features Stephen Baldwin playing a fat sort of Indiana Jones. Definitely in the so bad it is entertaining mould.

    'Joe Dirt'. It's complete rubbish but one of the best films I've ever watched. Sheer genius.

    Need for speed, you're kind of hoping for some redeeming factor, but it's just a waste of a couple of hours.

    This may not be a popular entry, but I thought The Lego Movie was awful. Dull and utterly unfunny. What is all the fuss about what a marvelous film it is supposed to be? We (as in the whole family) lasted about 40 minutes before giving up on it.

    I didn't mind Cabin In The Woods, not great but not awful. Also I'd say that it's fine for kids to watch if they're 11; they'll be banging class A's and out all night in a four or so years..........

    So much promise , so little delivery. Still, not that bad.

    But very short too...80 mins I think.

    Agreed! Totally tedious. But a colleague raved about it...

    I watched Teeth this morning on Netflix.

    I didn't stop it so it must have been OK ish...

    Red face I'm surprised about some peeps not liking 'SKYFALL'!

    ...I thought it was quite good! :) Much better than 'Quantum of Solace', but not quite as good as 'Casino Royale'.

    I also quite enjoyed 'Cabin in the Woods'. Classic, original B-movie style horror.

    Her (2013)

    This, for me, is the most overrated film I've seen in a long, LONG while.
    Nicely shot, well acted, but sooooooo boring.

    Serious waste of 2 hours.....

    Then again, I enjoyed Skyfall, Inglorious Basterds and even Knight and Day over it, lol, so maybe that says something!
