Worst Movie Ever!


Ninja blogger Alex J. Cavanaugh is at it again. This time we're talking the WORST movies ever. So much fun! Be sure to check out Alex's place for the links to other participants! :)

Okay, I have to preface this by saying I don't watch tons of movies. I tend to wait them out and find out what the reviews are before I watch them. So I haven't actually seen that many terrible ones. But...

I'm a big Star Trek fan. This is not a secret. However, even I was bored out of my skull during most of the first Star Trek movie made. I think I almost fell asleep in the scene where they flew over V'ger - longest, most boring scene ever. The best thing about this movie? They didn't give up and actually made more - so I got to see Wrath of Khan! :)

I don't remember it very well, but when we were little, we watched The Blob with my family. It was supposed to be a horror movie (I think - unless it was supposed to be a parody??), but we laughed all the way through it. :)

Those are 2 of the worst movies I've seen. How about you? What's the worst movie you've watched?

  1. I remember The Blob, but I must have been pretty young because I remember being kinda freaked out by that thing oozing under the door. As far as my worst movie? There are so many bad movies, the truly great ones stand out more than all the bad ones. They just run together like water colors.

  2. I loved the old cheesy horror flicks like The Blob and The Fly, but must admit I also hated this 'sequel'. I always wondered why people were so silly and why they didn't just briskly walk away. My worst movie was actually loved by many, but I will dig out my eyeballs with teaspoons before sitting through The English Patient again.

  3. These sound like awful movies!

    There was a movie that I actually walked out of once...and now I don't even remember what the film was. That's how unmemorable it was. :)

  4. Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

    Killer Klowns from Outer Space

    yeah, they may be cult classics, but ugh! they're awful!

  5. i remember being very young while my grandparents and mom were watching that star trek movie... probably the best nap i ever had.

  6. I liked the original Blob, although I haven't seen it in years. Remember as a kid peering over my blanket watching it on the late night movie.

    ReplyDelete
  7. You have me curious about The Blob. I may just have to watch it now! Sometimes watching really bad movies is very entertaining. I did walk out of a movie once but cannot remember it's name. William Hurt was in it, and it ended up being an Academy Award nominee! Guess I am not the best judge of movies sometimes!

  8. Over the years I've grown to be very fond of the first Star Trek film - just cos now I know what to expect and I just think how it looks so good!!! Boring as hell but hey everyone looked so good!
    :-)

    Beware the Blob?? I'm laughing already! Yay! Take care

  9. How funny. THE BLOB was one I forgot. I laughed through it too when I say it YEARS after it was made. Maybe back then it was supposed to be scary, but certainly not by today's standards.

    Sorry to say i'm not a Star Trek junkie, so I didn't see the film.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I don't think I've seen that Blob movie. I don't know how I missed it. I love those old B flicks.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I am a TOTAL trekkie, but I agree with you--the first one was HORRIBLE! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh, now I can't call cheesy horror movies bad...because they're supposed to be bad. So they get a pass from me.

    Meet Joe Black...awful. That gorgeous cast couldn't do a darn thing for that slow-paced turd.
    Showgirls...barf. SO BAD. Burlesque...a vile collection of cliches. I could go on and on and on...

    There are a lot of horrible movies out there that should never have been made.

    ReplyDelete
  13. Star trek wasn't THAT bad :P And from what I heard from my parents, trekkies were actually really excited about that super long, super boring scene because OMG THEY HAVE A BUDGET NOW AND LOOK LOOK IT'S THE SHIP!
    :) But personally, I kinda agree.

  14. I didn't see these films, but liked the way you wrote about how you disliked them

    Thank you for your visit and comment, much appreciated.

    Yvonne.

  15. Yvonne O - you're so right! The bad ones do ooze together, just like the Blob!

    Charmaine - I've seen the English Patient on a couple of lists now so you're not alone. I haven't seen it - probably won't now! :)

    Elizabeth - it must have been bad then! I'm pretty careful about knowing the movie's crits before spending money on it!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Amie - I've never seen either of those - although my sister and I once won an intense round of Pictionary with Attack of the Killer Tomatoes :)

    Vic - I bet! I adore the Star Trek franchise, but I can't stand that movie. I never watch it when it's on the rerun rounds!

    Stephen - I was little and don't remember if it was the original or the sequel. Whichever it was, we did more laughing than anything else.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Lynn - I'm completely with you there. I've seen a few award winning movies which are ridiculously boring! Not my thing at all!

    Old Kitty - you're right - everyone in ST1 did look good - and that was probably the best part of the movie! :)

    Michael - you're right - standards have changed a lot! I don't think the Blob would stand up :) And if you ever do watch a Star Trek, my pick would be Wrath of Khan!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Holly - they really are fun to watch - as long as you know it's going to be bad going in, it's kinda fun!

    Shannon - I agree - LOVE the whole Star Trek franchise ... except this one!

    Lola - I haven't seen any of those ones. My kids usually see them all first and let me know if I should bother. Apparently they're good judges, so I've missed those ones!

    ReplyDelete
  19. Bethany - I think that was EXACTLY it! Give me some action, some laughs, some dialogue at least!!! :)

    Yvonne - you're very welcome! And thanks - don't waste your time on them :)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yeah, the first Trek movie was awful and the one with Malcolm McDowell was pretty bad, too.

    All time worst? Andrei Rublev, hailed as a "cinematic masterpiece" by a San Francisco film critic. 205 minutes long, and we stayed for it all because the ending was supposed to be spectacular. Yeah, a spectacular letdown. Good thing the theater sold espresso. ;-)

    ReplyDelete
  21. Yes! That first Star Trek was painful to watch because it was sooooo slowwwwww. It had some good bits (not many, though).

    ReplyDelete
  22. LOL! I'm like you--I read reviews FIRST, but when I was a kid, I remember hating that second Ghostbusters movie. It was the first time I'd ever fallen asleep in a theater... :D fun stuff~

    ReplyDelete
  23. Hey Jemi! Crap, I don't think you were signed up on the list - must be why I missed your post today. I'll go add you!

    ReplyDelete
  24. Actually in the last few years I have grown rather fond of Star Trek the Motion Picture.

    It is flawed, but the end of the 70s was a rough time. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Kathryn - that's sounds awful! 205 minutes is a loooooooong time if the movie sucks. Blech!

    Lynda - I agree - there were a few good moments. They were just well buried in the slooooooow parts!

    Leigh - that's hilarious. I never did see #2 for Ghostbusters - although the first one made me laugh! :)

    Alex - that's odd - I THINK I signed on the official dotted line... sometimes my techie skills leave a lot to be desired *sigh*

    ReplyDelete
  26. Tim - I haven't watched it in a bit, so maybe it will grow on me if I watch it again. I really want to like it! And you're so right - the 70s were full of angst and trauma!

    ReplyDelete
  27. I agree completely on the first Star Trek movie. Luckily, they got better. I remember seeing the blob as a kid. I think it was sufficiently scary for whatever age I was at the time. Now, of course, it's just funny.

    And congratulations! I have an award for you on my blog. Please pop over and pick it up at your convenience.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I FEEL like I've seen that Blob movie... it would have been ages ago, but I'm not sure if I'm confusing it with something else.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Linda - awwww! Thank you! I'll pop on over :) Yeah, the first ST was just sad, but I'm so glad they made more!

    Writing Nut - I saw it a couple of decades ago too. I don't have much memory - just giggling a lot when I knew I was supposed to be scared :)

    ReplyDelete
  30. The Blob was made in the teeny-tiny town where I was born. The theater is still there.

    ReplyDelete
  31. Tara - really??? That is so cool! I remember the scene with everyone spilling out of the theater, screaming like banshees!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Actually, the worst movie ever! was, 'Beware! The Blog,' :)
    And strangely enough, without self-promoting, I did a posting about another awful movie, 'The Blog' ....

    ReplyDelete
  33. Gary - love it! Beware the blog indeed! Okay, off to check out this strange coincidence! :)

    ReplyDelete
  34. This is such a fun blogfest! Sorry I missed it. The movie I hate the most is 2010. I know it has tons of loyal fans though (including my husband). It puts me to sleep everytime.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Hi Jemi,
    The article I mention in regards to 'The Blog', if you are interested, is here :

  36. Kari - I haven't seen that one either! I've missed a LOT of bad movies it seems. Not a bad thing at all! :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. Gary - got it! Thanks for the link. Loved the tale - and I'm going to be very, very careful with any stray meteorites from now on! :)

    ReplyDelete
  38. Worst movie huh. Hmmm...

    Catwoman starring Halle Berry. Hands down. I cringed and thought my eyes and brain were singed forever. Luckily I survived. :D

    ReplyDelete
  39. Cherie - I've seen Catwoman on a few lists today, but I've never seen it. Thankfully. So glad you survived the trauma! :)

    ReplyDelete
  40. I'm not familiar with these.

    I thought Basic Instinct 2, I Know Who Killed Me, and Batman and Robin were pretty bad.

    ReplyDelete
  41. I watched the Blob with my older brothers when my parents were out one night. They got so busted because I had nightmares for a week.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Medeia - I haven't seen any of those ones. It seems I've avoided a LOT of bad movies! :)

    Jennie - that's so funny - exactly what older brothers are known for! I always thought it would be nice to have an older brother ... maybe not! :)

    ReplyDelete
  43. You can check my blog for my worst which is probably contoversial but some movies are so bad they are good-Santa Claus Conquers the Martians-Pia zadora career highlight:)

    ReplyDelete
  44. Even the promotional poster is bad. A red Blob? Of what? I'm off to make my own list, but thanks for steering me clear of these! :-)

    ReplyDelete
  45. Those are good ones! I know that it's a cult flick and a lot of people like it, but I hate Bladerunner. It holds the place for one of the worst movies I've ever seen still.

    Have a great day, Jemi, dear!

    ReplyDelete
  46. You know, I don't watch a ton of movies, either. I'm always behind on what the latest "hot" movie is, and I'm ashamed to admit that I haven't even seen a lot of the classics.

    I'm just getting into Star Trek, but I think that first movie would bore me, too.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Yes that blob was just one big load of blobby crap.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Brigit - you're so right - especially when they become cult classics they can be quite fun, can't they? :)

    C Lee - you're very welcome - definitely 2 to avoid in my opinion. I'm interested to see what you've chosen!

    Jackee - thank you! I saw Bladerunner once as a kid - and don't remember it much. But I've never felt the desire to watch it again!

    ReplyDelete
  49. Shelley - I love all things Star Trek, but not this movie. I'm just so glad the franchise survived to make so many more good ones! :)

    Pat - yup! Blobby crap sums it up pretty perfectly! :)

    ReplyDelete
  50. Hi Jemi,
    And now for a serious answer. The worst film I ever so was 'Battlefield Earth', so bad, it was bad. John Travolta must cringe when he seems himself in it. Then again, he cringed and took his wages...

    ReplyDelete
  51. The worst movie I remember seeing is Mosquito Coast - talk about boring! I think I probably saw The Blob when I was a kid, but I don't remember much about it.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Gary - I've seen Battlefield Earth on several sites for this blogfest. I haven't watched it myself - and now I'm kinda glad!! Sounds like I've saved myself a few hours :)

    Susan - I don't remember much either - except laughing when I was supposed to be scared. And I'm a total wimp! Haven't seen Mosquito Coast either!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Okay... Beware the Blob? What? Just the title alone is horrible!

    ReplyDelete
  54. Talli - exactly!! No wonder it was a flop :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. I don't remember the Star Trek movie at all, but that was a long time ago.

    Never saw Beware the Blob but recently I saw the original The Blob with Steve McQueen and I rather enjoyed it. The fifties were my favorite time for sci fi films.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Lee - it was a long time! Blob was even longer for me. I think it was the sequel we watched and laughed through - memory is a bit fuzzy! :)

    ReplyDelete
  57. It is ususual to think that such an impressive movie franchise was kicked-off by such a dull film. Wrath of Kahn really saved the day!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  58. You're right, the first Star Trek movie was dull. It's a miracle any more were made.

    ReplyDelete
  59. A Scottish Tale. There's a skunk in it that you can tell is a stuffed animal and the strings show when it moves.

    ReplyDelete
  60. "Wrath of Khan" was the best Star Trek movie (the first one was awful, you're right). I disagree about "The Blob"--it's a must see.

    WORST FILMS for me? "Logan's Run" and "Rango" My daughter and I turned "Rango" off after 15 minutes. SUCKED big time.

    ReplyDelete
  61. The first Star Trek movie is hard to love, but it has its moments.

  62. DL - definitely! I was really nervous to watch Wrath of Khan - such a relief it was a fabulous movie! :)

    Diane - I agree - but I'm so relieved they did. I like most of the rest of them!

    Rebecca - really??? That is hysterical. How would they think anyone would let that go? :)

    ReplyDelete
  63. Heidi - I THINK it was the Blob remake I saw - but it might be the original. I was pretty young at the time! :)

    Dave - it does have a few good moments - but that one scene just kills it for me! :)

    ReplyDelete
  64. I'm a huge X-Files fan, but the 2nd movie was el stinko. I made the mistake of buying the blu-ray before I saw the movie. I will NEVER watch that again. Oh Mulder, you done me wrong.

    ReplyDelete
  65. Leslie - I got the first couple of seasons of X-Files for Christmas last year. I'm loving them! But I'll remember NOT to watch the 2nd movie! :)

    ReplyDelete
  66. I love those movies like The Blob...I love horror movies that make me laugh. I love funny silly movies too, but Zohan or something like that was probably my least favorite movie ever. I kept waiting for it to get better because I liked the lead actor, but it never happened. :O

    ReplyDelete
  67. Sharon - a lot of people do - maybe I should give it a shot again! It's so frustrating when you keep thinking 'it'll get better..' and it never does!

    ReplyDelete
  68. One of the worst films I've ever seen was - wait for it - ABBA! Dreadful thing. I love the actors, just didn't think they fitted in a musical. I'm strange, I know :)

    ReplyDelete
  69. Beware of the Blob was awful. Not scary at all!

    ReplyDelete
  70. Wendy - I couldn't bring myself to see ABBA - just couldn't do it! So I think I'd agree with you!! :)

    Theresa - from what I remember I totally agree! I'm a wimp and I giggled all the way through it!

    ReplyDelete
  71. uh... something about 'killer tomatoes'...?

    ReplyDelete
  72. Laughing Wolf - Yes! That's a great, awful one!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  73. I feel like I need to see the Blob. I bet it would be pretty funny, like you said!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I've not taken part in this blogfest as [I hesitate to admit this to the world but...] I don't like going to the pictures and often get bored half way through even the best of films. Anyway there’s a brand new award waiting for you on my blog. It’s a ‘thank you’ type of award :-)

    ReplyDelete
  75. If DVDs count it would have to be the one about a shop with jennifer Anniston in. See, it was so bad we had to get it out of the house and I can't remember what's it's called.

  77. Lydia - I've been tempted to rewatch it too - just to see! :)

    Rosalind - I like movies - but they have to fit in one of my favourite genres or I don't bother either! And THANK YOU! I'll pop on over :)

    Catherine - I don't think I've seen that one either. And I know what you mean - it's best to get rid of them quickly!! :)

    ReplyDelete
  78. Omg - I forgot about The Blob -- there was a movie Madonna made with Guy Ritchie directing that was so so bad we couldn't stop laughing. Can't remember the name of it, but I do know the reviews made her quit acting forever.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Hi Jemi.
    I found you through Rosalind and can't help but join your following. I've steer clear from all things blobbish but longed to be Nancy Drew. Plus, Elton and Billy are my two faves. I saw them together in concert. It doesn't get better.
    Cheers.

    ReplyDelete
  80. Anne - I vaguely remember Madonna in something horrific. I think I was lucky enough to avoid it!

    Robyn - Hi! So glad to meet you! I did want to be Nancy Drew too. And seeing Elton & Billy together would be a dream come true! Lucky you :)

    ReplyDelete
  81. Now I'm tpted to watch The Blob to see what is it about!

    ReplyDelete
  82. Nas - so funny! I actually am kind of tempted myself - it's been so long. Maybe it's not as bad as I remember. Maybe...

    ReplyDelete
  83. Pretty much anything with Nicole Kidman...

    Seriously though, I've gotten to the point where I don't even bother finishing a movie if it isn't doing it for me. (Can you tell it's been ages since I've been in a theatre?)

    ReplyDelete
  84. Jean - I know how you feel! I saw the final HP in theaters, but before that I don't know what the last movie I saw was! :)

  85. I really must beware of that blob!

  86. Dezzy - I think that's a very good idea!! :)
