What is the absolute worst movie you have seen? I mean it is so bad, made you so mad that you really want to start a fire and burn that DVD?

My vote goes to I love Huckabees.

Good question!
For me, its S1m0ne (S1m0ne (2002)).
Only movie that i have actually fallen asleep watching. Too much of Al Pacino in that one.
And if you consider Bollywood, then it would be No Entry. The only movie that has actually given me a headache.

Very true. The role of the penguins in the 'Madasgar' series is something which i thoroughly enjoyed, and will not forget for a long time to come.

Then I believe you must have loved Final Fantasy when it came out first atleast I did. In few scenes it was hard to accept that its an animation

And I agree 2 star is very low for Finding Nemo but then again everyone has different tastes & preferences

I remember watching it on TV some time back. There was this scene in the movie where the girl's hair is blowing in the wind, and if you didnt know already that its animation, you wont have known the difference!
But, animation for human form isn't as appealing as it is on talking animals (and robots) for me.

I heart Huckabees was pretty bad.

Some more recent watches, I could barely sit through.

- Eagle Eye
- Shoot Em Up.
- Le Divorce
- Raising Arizona
- Golden Eye

One very old & hyped (at that time) movie - I almost fell asleep in the theatre
- Who framed Roger Rabbit

I agree Final fantasy was just an exception as in it was very close to reality otherwise I like people animation too e.g The Incredibles , my all time favorites in recent times are

- Lion King (all parts)
- Finding Nemo
- Madagaskar
- Ice Age (1 & 2)
- The Incredibles
- etc etc

There are more in Tv serials too but that would be OT here

One of the worst movies I have seen is "Bad Taste" - I will not say this was a bad experience as I am a huge fan of B-grade movies and this was an absolute treat.

Unbelievably, the movie was produced and directed by Peter Jackson (LOTR) and starred himself, lol.

Here is what wikipedia said about the movie

Quote:
Bad Taste is about aliens that come to earth with the desire of turning humans into food. Jackson created extensive special effects for the film, including one infamous alien vomit drinking scene utilising some muesli mixed with green food colouring. Jackson also takes two acting roles, enabling him to include a scene in the film where he fights himself.
Let me share with you an excerpt from the script synopsis.
Quote:
An alien answers the door and captures Giles who wakes up in a tub of water with the alien leader telling him that he is to be eaten. Later, Derek wakes up and finds that he fell in a seagull's nest. He realizes that his brains are falling out the back of his head, so he stuffs them back in using a hat to hold them in place.
Hilarious and decidedly horrible, this movie. I thought it was wonderful. I recommend it for those people that can handle this sort of thing.

Incredibles was incredible, no denying that!
And my list wont be any different from yours, except that Wall E and Cars would be at the top, followed by Shrek.

@Sam: I just had lunch!! That movie's description nearly made it all defy gravity.

Damn how did I miss Cars, another sweet movie

I liked Wall E only from the part when he enters the spaceship, was great thereafter. Shrek somehow I have always seen in bits & pieces but whatever I have seen I liked.

Btw have you seen Walt Disney's Robin Hood & the Jungle Book(very Old movies these are) they were simply amazing

Ah Jungle Book, not the Disney one, but the one shown on DD long time ago is my more favored one, perhaps because thats the one i saw first.
Havent seen Robin Hood though.

I wish they had made a movie from TaleSpin as well.

Shocking bennyboy ratings.

Finding Nemo is one of the best movies that I have seen. Don't know if it is because my first son was around 3 years old when I first saw the movie, but the movie is a treat for everyone. Must have seen it at least 2 dozen times.

@ Techno... add "Sword in the Stone" to that, another great Disney Movie.
