Much like when you make a best of list, someone comes along and reminds you of a title that possibly should be listed above what you have already written.....some of these bottom tens do seem more a case of 'worse prominent/famous films you can name' as there are some appalling productions out there that boggle the mind they ever made it to the screen.

Given that proviso Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Fleet Street is another contender for my worse 10, 'Sleepy Hollow' was actually my favourite Burton film so I approached Todd quite enthusiastically (admittedly with little knowledge of the musical) sadly I found it quite excruciating to watch.

Pure trash, especially that ETERNAL SPOTLIGHT OF THE SUNBURNT EYE. Jim Carrey can't go through one film without acting like a fucking half-wit.

I'd dispute that last part, just on the basis of TRUMAN SHOW (even though I'm sure I'd have liked the writer's intended version with Gary Oldman a helluva lot more.)

Totally disagree on ETERNAL SUNSHINE -- I found the film to be fantastic -- despite the terrible way they make Winslet look -- several years ago, and rewatching it in the last month didn't alter my opinion a jot.

Here's a random few, although I realize some of these are rather soft targets:

The Deer Hunter
Dirty Dancing
Dead Poets Society
Chocolat
The World is Not Enough
The Phantom Menace
(I've never seen the other two)
World Trade Center
Spider-Man 3
Monsters vs. Aliens


I don't go out of my way to watch bad movies. I'm never going to watch Transformers or Uwe Boll. I saw ten minutes of Crash on TV once. That was enough.

I detest Dead Poet's Society. In a similar vein, I've never seen Goodwill Hunting but suspect I'd loathe it too.

I don't much care for DEAD POETS SOCIETY, either. Wouldn't say it's one of my most-hated films, but it's probably my least favorite Peter Weir effort.

One of the problems I had with DEAD POETS is that most of the young actors didn't impress me.

One item I may add to the list is TRANSFORMERS. I've not seen it yet, but it's in my Netflix queue and I'm gonna see how bad it is. May move on the others if I make it through the first one. I've only seen one movie (all the way through) featuring Shia Labeef, and I can't stand him. Megan Fox leaves me cold. Looks like a sex robot. And of course the "creative" team of Michael Bay, plus Orci and Kurtzman who make Purvis and Wade look like Billy Wilder and Charles Brackett.

Lemme guess, we get an incoherent story filled with broad stereotypes of the usual characters, and in the end, after doing nothing of any merit whatsoever, Peter Parker is promoted to captain of the... oh wait, I'm mixing my movies.

Please note that I only said "I hate" those ten movies. I passed no other judgement on them.

I think Batman and Robin certainly deserves a lot of the scorn it continues to receive; Based upon the amount of money thrown at the project and the level of talent involved in making it, the end result was a disaster of biblical proportions, and one that no one seemed to emerge unscathed from. None of the principals involved have really gone on to do anything bigger or better. Clooney has received lots of critical praise for some of his films, but he's box office poison. O'Donnell sort of dropped off the map for a while before staging a comeback in television. Silverstone hasn't opened a hit film since, and Schwarzenegger peaked as an actor with any sort of clout before BR came out.

Superman 3 is a great indicator of what SUPERMAN II might have looked like had there been no Richard Donner/Tom Manckeweicz influence at all. Left to his own devices Richard Lester would have destroyed SUPERMAN II the same way he ruined SUPERMAN III.

The 'director's cut' of Superman II almost brings it down to III's level.

BTW, I could start a second bottom 10 list with:

Highlander 2
Santa Claus the Movie
Beverly Hills Cop III
Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines

Not all, strangely enough. An earlier poster mentioned Any Which Way You Can, which I actually found more enjoyable than Every Which Way But Loose.

Depends on your mood, I suppose.

I'm one of those crazy few who prefer THE FRENCH CONNECTION II to the original, and THE GODFATHER; PART III to the previous two.

I'm just going to mention films that I had higher expectations for.

Both Ironman 1 and 2. These films are too Downey Jr. centric for my tastes. I would prefer more straightforward Ironman. Marvel's The Avengers was much better. We got more Ironman and less of Downey Jr.'s eccentric Tony Stark.

Rise of the Planet of the Apes. Not a bad film, but not really what I was hoping for in a fresh Planet of the Apes offering. It just seemed off and rather removed from the vibe of the original.

Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. Way too serious a film for this series. It presented like a medieval battle film. The producers wisely lightened things up for the 3rd installment.

All three Matt Damon Jason Bourne films. I thought in the last two films especially, the duo of Damon and Greengras did an injustice to Ludlum's character. They messed with the whole mystique. The original novels were not as polticized. Damon doesn't look anything like what any reader would have envisioned Bourne to actually look like, so even the first film is off, but the last two films go way off the reservation. Richard Chamberlain was much closer in the TV version of "Indentity." Jeremy Renner actually would have been a good choice to play Bourne. And killing off the wife was not necessary to portray Ludlum's three novels. Killing her off for a 4th non-Ludlum based installment would have been acceptable, but Greengras knocked her off at the beginning of the second film. Maybe someday, someone will do Ludlum's Bourne trilogy with more respect for the source material.

I am not bothered by either of the last two Batman films, from the first go-around. I don't mind comic films that are light and a bit silly, as long as they retain some edge and don't completely degerate into camp. If you are going to go that route, then better to go all out, as the TV series, and it's film spin-off did. Batman IMO is flexible. It can be light and somewhat frivolous or dark and serious, like the current Nolan-Bale trilogy. The Clooney film, retained enough danger I thought to off-set the camp elements and thus keep it entertaining.

HOMECOMING QUEEN'S GOT A GUN's Julie Brown is in the second one ... her and Falconetti (BigBillSmith) is enough to give the sequel an edge, easy.
