Worst movies ever
So it seems like everyone is doing this, and so after slamming my head against the wall at some other bloggers choice, I thought i'd throw my own into the mix.
It would be easy to go to the IMDB and just pick the random worse rated, but lets shake it up a little. This is my list of the worst 10 movies that other people tend to like.
When did rape and incest make a bad film good. It was like people were coerced into liking this from some form of middle class guilt. Sometimes terrible things are just that, and nothing can be learned, nor enjoyed from watching it. It should have been called Incesties.
2, Forrest Gump.
Sigh. This one is going to sting, but any film whose central message is that the ultimate form of goodness and spiritual enlightenment is essentially to get a lobotomy needs to be forgotten.
3, Harry Potter (all of them)
Now settle down, I havent read the books and I'm sure they are all just flipping brilliant, but the films are next to unwatchable. I like a complex plot as much as the next guy, but just how many contrivances can one movie have? After the 10th McGuffin I wanted to gouge my eyes out.
I hate this film. It is anti science, anti intellectual, and anti fun. Even dragons couldn't save this one. The experience was almost exactly like eating an entire packet of m&m's: colourful, sweet, but very quickly nauseous.
One day all the people who liked this film will wake and realise it was all a drrrreeeeaaammmm. Needlessly complex to the point of being obtuse.
6, Citizen Kane
One day I will drink enough coffee to stay awake through this one. But it hasn't happened yet.
7, The Green Mile
When will people realise that the 'magic black man' trope is more racist than the KKK. I hate this film, mostly because they were obviously trying to make "The Shawshank Redemption 2"
8, There Will be Blood
Maybe, but call me when it gets here, in the meantime I will watch another episode of Deadwood.
9, In Bruges
Soooo many people I know loved this film. The same people insisted I would too. They were wrong. One of the few films I have ever walked out of.
10, Revenge of the Sith
I could not bring myself to make this list without putting this monstrosity on it. Everyone says it was the best of the prequels, as if one kind of shit is better than another. There is only one thing to say about this movie: NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!
There you have it. Hate away, haters.
