View Full Version : Movies you hate that everyone else hates too

I saw no redeeming merit in "Leonard Part VI", "The Zodiak Killers", or "Home Alone II". My views seemed to be broadly shared.

Caddyshack II. Worst movie ever.
Major League II. Second-worst movie ever.
Vegas Vacation. Actually had a funny scene, but I don't remember what it was.
Naked Lunch. As Nelson Munz said after seeing that film, "I can think of two things wrong with that title."
(actually, I never saw Naked Lunch - I just love that line).
Edward Penishands. Bad porn is soooooo depressing.

The entire Police Academy series, possibly excepting the first, but especially anything after the third. The rest are total overkill.

Battlefield Earth, soon to be followed by Left Behind-Made by religious fanatics FOR religious fanatics.

Hudson Hawk and Popeye. As for the others mentioned so far, as bad as they may be, at least they didn't sing.

I love Popeye!!! That movie is great.

Any Superman movie after II.
Highlander II (Less serious nomination for III).
The Ninth Gate.

Cool as Ice - Yup, Vanilla Ice made a movie.

Spice World...even the name makes me want to cry
Well, most people hate Star Trek V.
I've heard it rumored that some people actually like it. I don't believe it.
Actually, I do. There's no accounting for taste.

I adore Hudson Hawk and have a kind of cringing affection for Spice World. Both movies contain Richard E. Grant, you see, and he can do no wrong. There must be some redeeming feature to each of his movies and I will find them.
That said, I have never met a single human being who enjoyed the Val Kilmer/Marlon Brando version of Island of Dr. Moreau. The memory of that movie is like a cancer on my life.

I must agree with Juniper200 about The Island of Dr. Moreau. The only entertaining bit in the movie was Marlon Brando with an ice bucket on his head, and that was just because I kept wondering who the hell thought of it and why it was left in the final edit.
Judge Dredd was a truly horrible movie. At fourteen, my friend and I watched it by default and spent the entire time spotting the movies it stole material from. I think the final count was four.
Coneheads was pretty bad. I think as a rule, anything you pick up off the video store's new release shelves after seven o'clock on a Friday night is crap.
The Crow: City of Angels deserves some kind of mention. I don't have time to list everything that made the movie blow, because I have to go to work tomorrow. However, in both the sequel and the much better original, I noticed that whenever the hero was taking revenge on the gang, he would go through them one by one. He would grab Bad Guy #1, ask "Where is Bad Guy #2?" and the guy would know exactly where his colleague in evil was! Who keeps up with their friends that well?
Hey, I must defend Coneheads. While its certainly no Great Movie, when you compare it to the rest of the SNL-sketch-cum-movie genre, its actaully quite good.

Superman IV made me wince in agony as I watched it.
Popeye—I love the strip to death and I certainly admire the attempt to squeeze as much of Segar's strips as they could into one movie, but the problem was that they tried to squeeze as much of Segar's strips as they could into one movie. One Segar story (or maybe two) per film would have been much easier to digest—and to follow.
Look Who's Talking—That's the last time I ever let certain friends of mine railroad me into going to the movies. Sadly, though, I don't think enough other people hate this movie, but I've long been on an active campaign to change that.
Dune—Call me a movie snob, but coherent story line is essential to my enjoyment of the film. Dune is kind of like the movie Popeye, only with boring characters and giant worms, and an extra hour of agony in the theater.
Bolero—Well, whaddyawant? John Derek wrote it.

I hate it!
I'm assuming you never had to see Look Who's Talking Too. It was worse than the first one. I think they made a third movie in the 'look who's talking' series--maybe with talking animals or something. I never saw that one.
