Forums - Movies Discussion - Worst movie you've ever watched

DevilRising said:
If the show had never existed, and that was just some oddball idea that Shyamalan had, I would have honestly thougth it was a decent film. Not great by any stretch, but a decent action/fantasy. However, the show DOES exist, and was amazing. The movie not only gets some key things wrong, but it also lacks most of the heart and humor from the show. The charactes were just kind of shells of themselves, compared to what they're actually supposed to be. 


I don't think M. Night is a bad director, in fact I like several of his earlier films. But I think one thing he has proven he is not, is a big budget blockbuster director. He excelled when he was working on character driven stories, in a smaller scale. Like Signs, that was pretty good I thought, and it dealt with a worldwide alien invasion, but only focused on one family's experience of that. And that was for the best. With After Earth, which wasn't a BAD movie, it was just kind of bland, I think the original story concept would have made for a much stronger film: a father and son who were camping/hiking in the wilderness, the father gets hurt, and the son has to go for help. That would have likely been a nice, character driven drama. Instead, Will Smith wanted to turn it into a sci-fi epic, which simply isn't M. Night's forte.

But yeah, The Last Airbender wasn't great. And honestly, while I was originally exicted about, they never should have bothered trying to adapt it to film in the first place. The show was perfect as is, they even shirked the usual Hollywood mold, and purposefully only made it three seasons, with a specific, pre-determined beginning, middle and ending. Unlike most modern shows, which fly by the seat of their pants, have little consistency, and often feel like they have no real concept where they're ultimately going a lot of the time.

Eh, I still think the movie wouldn't of been good even if the show hadn't existed. The acting was pretty bad, and so were the fight scenes. But because the show does exist, it really does make the movie a lot worse than if it didn't. I do agree that they never should of bothered adapting the show to live action, I just wouldn't see it working.

Harry potter , after 15 minutes i as asleep, damn the movie was boring as fuck.



Probably every Disney sequel.



This year worst film for me it would be batman v superman, but it's not the worst movie ever i've seen, that title would go to some Addam Sandler or Eddie Murphie cheap comedy fart film, the disney animated sequels, Shyamalan films like the last airbender or after earth, and probably the american pie sequels and spin-offs.



I find it hard to narrow down to just one, but some of the frontrunners would be:

Immortel Ad Vitam

Tommy

Zoolander

Meet the Spartans

Mac and Me

Catwoman

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians

Attack of the Killer Tomatoes

Yonggary (The 2001 remake)



Bet with Liquidlaser: I say PS5 and Xbox Series X will sell more than 56 million combined by the end of 2023.

I mean, people usually watch good movies. I wont say a movie I havent seen, so I might say one that has mixed reception overall.

OT: That I can remember watching, with it's story and characters? I wanna say Paul Blart: Mall Cop (jesus, even the title sucks). There's probably a much worse one, but my head cant remember much.



Bet with bluedawgs: I say Switch will outsell PS4 in 2018, he says PS4 will outsell Switch. He's now permabanned, but the bet will remain in my sig.

Hard to go past Battlfield Earth. Recent movies the new independence day ranks up there and I made the horrible mistake of watching Insurgent/Alligient (predictable, bad acting, bad script/dialogue etc)



Don't ever go with your mother to the cinema.
