What's your least favorite DVD that you own?

I was looking through my collection today and I realized that I still own Independence Day for some reason. Man, I hate that flick.

I must admit that I have a penchant for bad movies. I love the fact that I will soon own the Tiffani Amber Theissen opus: "Shriek if you know what I did last friday the 13th," and Police Academy 7: Mission to Moscow is probably my favorite of the franchise.

I can seem to find humor in any film or even tv show.

However....The following are tried and true exceptions to the rule:

The first runner up:

And I used to like and respect Roger Ebert.

The Grand Prize goes to:

It is simply shocking at how bad this series is. The worst blind buy in the history of my existence. 'Nuff Said.

Incidentally: Both are available for trade in my trade thread below, if you're in the mood for visual torture.

i got soul survivor's during the last ddd 20% off sale. it was bundled with jacob's ladder far less than what jacob's ladder would've been by itself so i got it. a truly horrible movie, i love jacob's ladder though. a little while ago i gave my parents my copy of mi2 or that would've been #1.

MI2 is probably mine. I keep it because of the extras, namely the one with Ben Stiller.

worst movie - I'd have to say Amos & Andrew. But it's not THAT bad, and it was only $5.

worst dvd edition - Amos & Andrew, again. It's P&S, no extra features or anything. Also The Last Seduction, though it's one of my favorite movies. It's P&S, no extras, and the video quality is like VHS. I'm getting the R2 or R4 anamorphic release when I get a multi region player in a few months.

and the worst that I owned at one point, but sold is The Ben Stiller Show. I blindly bought it and didn't get past a few episodes. I don't think I laughed once at anything

I watched this film one night with a couple friends and can easily confirm it being terrible, however, I almost died laughing when the pizza boy said something along the lines of, "if we aren't here in 30 mins, we ain't coming." I think he was some dorky kid on a scooter or something.

Anyway, my least favorite film I own is probably Independence Day as well. Every year I say I'm going to watch on July 4th weekend but I never do.

Doom Generation. I bought it for the various scenes of Rose McGowan. For that and nothing more, it was barely worth my $15. But the movie itself? It takes a hell of a lot to get me to dislike a movie with various scenes of a nude Rose McGowan. Doom Generation somehow managed to accomplish that.

American Cuisine, a film I bought simply because I'm a huge fan of Jason Lee.

Dark Angel: Season 1 - Although I didn't buy it. It's sooooooo bad, I only watched the pilot & nothing else. Jessica Alba keeps me from selling it or throwing it out though.

well, i went through my collection and traded off all the ones that i really hated. took them down to CD Wherehouse for store credit. There were 2 however that i couldnt shake.

Dreamcatcher -- they had too many of these (wonder why)

Lost in Space -- somehow i ended up with one that has the "promotion not for sale" label on the back and they wouldnt take it.

(head down in shame) Fast and the Furious... I dont even know why I bought it... Also Ocean's 11, and I like the movie, but my wife picked it up for me and it was the Full-screen edition. I didnt realize until later after I opened it and watched it, and was too lazy to take it back.

Ninja Scroll 10th Anniversary Edition. I don't like this anime movie very much. Someday I will think about trading this movie, on this site, for something else.

I have about a dozen or so in mind for the next batch I dump but I would have to say leading the pack right now is Tour of Duty season 1. Just didn't have the same impact as I remember when seeing it originally.

Johnny English. Came in the Bean/JE two pack and I figured I'd give it a shot. Horrible movie.
