I'm curious to know what your conditions for being the worst are. Certainly there are some bad films on your list, but several I would never call the "worst of all time."

That seems to be the theme of a lot of these type of questions. "What is the worst/ugliest etc."

Replies: Insert name of popular film/generally accepted as attractive actor/actress etc.

It seems to be the trendy thing to do.

I'm gonna go on a limb and guess that you don't like Ron Howard or Russell Crowe. Just a crazy guess of mine.

Wrong. A bad film is a bad film. But a terrible film sometimes becomes an amazingly good one if its camp, such as 'Showgirls' which is actually riveting.

There are some really bad films with GOOD stars - most Jessica Lange movies come to mind, such as 'Far North'. Anything with Elijah Wood in it is generally terrible as well except for LOTR, which I thought was the gayest film ever.

Worst, would mean in your OPINION a film you thought just did not work for YOU. By that yardstick, I love 'Raising Helen' but hate 'Titanic' though most people would say it the other way around.

And yeah, 'The Matrix' SUCKED big time.

I hate Ron Howard. That weasel should stop making films.

"The Passion of Joan of Arc" is one of those artistic old films that critics rave about, but I think is just as bad a trainwreck as "Spiceworld" with its mindnumbingly untalented lead actress

"American Pie" and all its versions is pretty bad.

Slapstick of Another Kind. It's even worse if you realize it's loosely based on a Kurt Vonnegut book...starring Jerry Lewis....

"Hours" was pretty bad too, I didnt finish watching it.

And you really expect me to take you seriously? I don't know if you've had some special training, or simply are a natural-born troll, but you need to see a lot more movies and develop a little more critical judgement. Yeah, I know, you like what you like, and don't like what you don't like, and everybody is entitled to their opinion. It helps, though, if you have an informed opinion.

I had the misfortune of seeing this movie:

Stardust

at the Mill Valley Film Festival in 2000 and lordy it was a mess - the highlight of the movie and the most funny was when laserbeams shot out of Willie Nelson's eyes. A truly terrible movie that should not be inflicted on anyone IMO.

I also inflicted on myself an Italian made movie called:

Hollywood Flies

that was soooo painfully bad, it's no wonder this hasn't been picked up for theatrical or home video release - it is so subpar and stupid I bet you cable wouldn't pick it up, considering it has Vinnie Jones, Brad Renfro and Casper Van Dien starring in it.

2. Holy Man
3. Gigli - As bad as they say
4. Mixed Nuts.

I don't mind trolls when they're funny or at least clever in some little way, but Cottington's shtick is just fucking tedious.

The only two movies on your list that I watched are Gone with the Wind
& A Beautiful Mind. Both of these movies would rank at least as good in my book.

Threads like this are always about the last big blockbuster. Come on folks, you don't know bad movies until you dive really deep into the muck. Stuff like Cruising, Silent Night Deadly Night Part 2, Night Patrol, 20 Dates, anything by Gregg Araki...

yeah from what I have read Silent Night Deadly Night Part 2 is almost completely comprised of Part 1's footage

Yep. It takes part one, makes it a movie that someone is watching (I think) and then shows about 40 minutes worth. So you've got all the badness of Part 1 with all new badness mixed in so things make zero sense.

I can't believe nobody has ever asked this question before on this forum.
