My Worst Movies EVER

This was not my idea...I make enough lists on my own.  This was put to me by my friend Mike, who, if you know him, you can easily find his list, or ask him and he might be able to tell you.  I haven't really thought about making a list of my most disliked movies.  It was hard enough making a list of the movies I like.  But since it was a challenge put to me, I accepted and I did my best.  So here's the list as it stands now.  I'm sure it will change since, for as many good movies that come out, there are roughly 3 total crap movies, so here you go, if you're interested.  Sometimes I just like to have these things documented:


Alright, here's my list. But first, what I realize is that I either don't go see movies that I think/know will be terrible, or I like some bad movies... we're all allowed guilty pleasures though, right?

So from bottom to top:

10. Benjamin Button-this was supposed to be good, every Oscar voter at September was saying thi
s was the movie to beat. By January 1st, the tide had started to change, in what I consider one of the few saving graces in the history of movies. It was an upsetting turn from Fincher and a re-hash of Forrest Gump, if Forrest had just been born old.

9. Transformers 2- If there was something that WASN'T offensive about this heinous waste of more than two hours of my time, please tell me. BLOATED is the only word to fit this giant poop of a movie.

8. Good Luck Chuck- so called because it will be your Good Luck if you can manage not to upCHUCK.

7. This may not be fair, but I was having a problem filling this space, so it goes to any Jennifer Lopez movie, with the exception of ENOUGH, and even that's only because Noah Wyle is in it.  With this exception, I can't really remember any J.Lo movie...not specifically, they all blur together.  Sure the same could be said for Kate Hudson movies, but she did Almost Famous, which is still better than ENOUGH on a bad day.  J.Lo takes the title here.


6.  The Wolfman- This stinker dropped earlier this year and was worse than I could have ever thought.  Not offensively bad, but I felt deceived and that's enough to earn it a spot.

5. Grease-  this mainly has to do with the painful memories from Mark T. Sheehan high school production I was in as a senior.  It was a great production, in case you didn't get to see it, but on a personal basis, this was kind of a bottoming out time.  I'm over it now, but I still can't stand when TBS airs this on a regular basis.  I'm one of the few people in the world who like Grease 2 more than the original.  Go figure.

4. Fantasia- I will never understand why people like this movie.  Never.  Or maybe I've just never been high enough to get it.  Either way, Mickey can take his broomstick and...well..

3. I Know Who Killed Me- I was sold the viewing of this on the basis that it was "so bad it was good".  It was only one of those adjectives and I'll give you a hint, it's the adjective that's only 3 letters long.  Too bad the movie was longer.

2. Superstar-  I saw this, in the theaters for a friend's birthday.  It's a miracle that, more than 10 years later, we're still friends.  I think "haunted" might be the term to best describe my remembrance of that theater going experience.

1. Hour of the Star-This was a film school requirement and almost immediately I realized I've never hated anything the way I hate this movie.  Just thinking about it makes me want to grab a bucket.
