What's The Worst That Could Happen? Need I answer?

Domestic Disturbance

Dahmer - expected a glimpse into the mind of a serial killer, insead it was softcore gay porn.

The only reason I bought these three is because I needed a third film to complete a buy 2 get one free deal at Blockbuster, so at least I only paid about $6.67 for them - or $4.67 for Dahmer IIRC ($6.99 b2g1).

The Whole Nine Yards...it was a blind buy for me, and I could barely sit through it. Of course, I have a lot of DVDs that I didn't pay for that are probably worse movies (For example, I have the 1998 Godzilla, because it was a freebee). But of movies I've paid full-price for, this one is my pick.

Great post!

Well, the movie that is by far the worst in my collection but can't get rid of is Teen Wolf Too. Unfortunately it came as a double feature with Teen Wolf so I am stuck with it. I still get a little embarrassed knowing it is on my shelf & I can't do anything about it.

Q: The Winged Serpent - I bought this used on a blind buy. I knew going in that it was a B horror flick, but it just did not have enough humor or camp to make it a keeper. The monster had zero personality. I nearly fell asleep twice before finally closing the book on it. Blech. Michael Moriarty's performance was the one silver lining in this film.

Dungeons and Dragons: A wretched movie to be sure. The only reason I have it is that I have a pretty sizeable D&D collection from my gaming days of yesteryear and felt obliged to pick up a used copy of this DVD to add to it. I like to think of it as part of my D&D collection as opposed to my DVD collection.

Probably Night of the Living Dead: 30th Anniversary Edition. Don't get me wrong, I'm a big fan of the movie Night of the Living Dead, but this version had extra scenes added to it (not by Romero) that just make the movie laughable.

I keep on trying to get myself to let go of it, but there's something about turning to the back of the DVD case and seeing that number that Anchor Bay puts on their limited releases. It makes me think, "I know this is an awful version of the movie, but if it really is limited, maybe it will be worth something some day." I need to realize that the version of the movie is so bad that no one probably wants it in the first place.

Moulin Rouge (The Baz Luhrman atrocity): I got it as a Christmas gift from an a older brother who sincerely thought I would be shallow enough to enjoy it, so it's a delicate situation.

I can't give it away to anybody in a restricted circle of friends and family. I hate to fake destroying it by accident. Right now, I' m thinking of hiring someone to stage a fake home invasion/burglary where the perpetrator is interrupted and only has time to grab that DVD and maybe the garbage and jump through a window... But it's not definite. Any suggestions?

Here's what you do. Drive to the part of town where the gay male or transvestite hookers hang out. Leave it sitting on the passenger seat. Roll down your window and stop and talk to one for a minute, then casually glance out of the driver's window for a few seconds. That's the last time you will see that gaudy artwork and mauve keepcase.

I tried that but the drag queen I spoke to said: "Don't watch that trash, honey, it'll only ***** up you taste for good musicals!" She had education, I guess.

classic... ahahahahah I can almost picture the scenario with some deep voiced drag queen. I loathe moulin rouge. The madonna covers broke me.

Anyway, the biggest piece of garbage i have is Titus. I bought it blind, used, anthony hopkins, period piece, how bad can it be? Ugh. It sits in a pile of other flicks i want to trade but have been too lazy to post em here.

Not crazy about Titus myself, but I thought the dinner scene was rather entertaining. In any event, you have to approach that film as Roger Ebert described it - as a parody, sort of Shakespeare's version of a tongue-in-cheek film like "Scream". In that light, I can see what the director was going for and why some critics (and IMDB.com users) rated it highly - but I personally did not.

Someday when I am bored I might listen to the director's commentary on that one, just for curiosity.

Interesting...trashing the film with such a passion in a style that was condemned by the same poster with even stronger passion...detesting Irreversible (deja vu?)

Pro-bassoonist: For the record, I happen to be gay, which explains why I will ususally stick my neck out to condemn obvious instances of gay-bashing or hate propaganda like Irréversible. But being gay doesn't mean I have to like a piece of trash like Moulin Rouge! or even give free sartorial or decorating advice to straight people I meet on the street, for that matter. I'm not that gay!
