Movies you should avoid

Posted 26 July 2012 - 05:12 PM

We all have our favorite movies, but what we don't have is a collection of movies that are so bad, people should be warned about them.

Basically, I just wasted a couple of hours of my life watching a film called 'The Happening', staring Mark Wahlberg and Zooey Deschanel, which was about plants giving off toxins (at will) that made everyone suicidal. Yup. It was that bad.

So has anyone seen any movies, old or new, that should be avoided? Only include movies in your list that have fairly well-known celebrities and were actually shown in the cinema (none of those crappy straight to dvd movies); and dont forget to mention WHY they should be avoided (no spoilers, just incase someone wants to see it :P )

My list so far:

The Happening - Trees make people suicidal ¬.¬
Spiderman 3 - Storyline was a mess with things happening all over the place.
White Chicks - I get unrealistic comedy. We all know most things that happen in comedy wouldn't happen in real life. However, I can't sit through a film and believe that other characters think they are 'hot white chicks'.

Hey, I happened to like The Happening.


Usually when I watch movies, I like to sit through the whole thing. This movie changed that. After enduring a painful 2 hours, I decided that this was the worst movie I had ever seen. It's The Road, which somehow got 7/10 stars. The movie would have been bearable if it wasn't for the fact that for the little kid, they had some actor who was like, 13. And pretty much every single time the dad had to fight for their lives, the kid starts crying. And I'm talking bawling. It's like every time something happens the kid has a mental breakdown. The movie would have been okay if it wasn't for that.

I like "White Chicks".

The movie "Timeline" is pure cheese. The acting is horrible, I laughed quite a few times. Really horrible. This coming from a dude who can watch "Plan 9 From Outer Space" without yawning.

An older one.. Crank. When the person working at the theater gives you the strangest look, hesitates, and asks if your really sure you want the ticket as your handing them the money,.... well, lets just say that ignoring it was a bag idea. The reaction was well justified.

Really? I though that was one of the funniest movies I've ever seen. (The second one... not so much.)

This. There is some world class acting from the legends, Gary Oldham, Alan Richman, Maggie Smith and Robbie Coltrane to name a few. But the acting from the kids is horrendous.

Yes. If only you could dress up Gary Oldman, Alan Rickman and Maggie Smith to play eleven year olds.

The Harry Potter movies sucked big-time, while I actually loved Crank. I purposefully avoided the Twilight movies, but I'm still quite sure they suck.
