Inception, not a clue what it was about 10 minutes in so switched my brain off. Family seemed to enjoy it though :twisted:

The Expendables, so bad it's good!
Yeah Inception was pretty bad, I understood it, but it was really bad, don't understand how people hail it a "great" film.

A dream, within a dream, within a dream??? What in the world??

Still need to see Expendables

Hiya Ninja,sorry I didn't get back sooner.

If Tarantino didn't direct it he had a bit part in it because I remember he got shot,maybe not with a guitar but something got him anyway,grand piano,perhaps.

Piranha's, Deep Blue Sea, Lake Placid, Anaconda all the movies and the washed up sequals etc etc are all very lame. The epic worst movie is Anaconda Offspring with David Hasselhof as the bad guy and a super mutated snake with spears and the like,.........it brought a tear to my eyes and a cramp in my chest.

I think it was either a giant mutant bunny or a huge 'flock' of piranhas...

The Thin Red Line - utterly dreadful in every respect. I sat through it again last night, just to make sure it was truly as bad as I remembered. It was.

For a film to fail so spectacularly at conveying warfare, given that it emerged after Saving Private Ryan, is utterly unforgiveable.:givemestrength:

If you watch a film entitled "Sharktopus" or "Giant Rabid Lemurs vs the Rampaging Space Alpaca", then I have little sympathy for you, to be quite frank. :p

RoB I have to disagree with you about Thin Red Line. I think the problem may have been you were expecting a war film and the director wasn't making a war film, he was just using war as a setting. Its about the nature of life and how things that seem so important to us really mean absolutely nothing when it comes down to it. Life goes on whatever we do and you can only truely see that the moment before death.

Or summit like that - I like it anyways.

Worst film I've ever sat through at the cinema? Waterworld - oooo Costners a fish! whop de doo. And the little girl with the map on her back that they can't read until they they see her upside down and realise the maps upside down - what took them so long to figure that out? hardly rocket science is it? Did she never do handstands as a kid? load of bull.

Yeah - I got that he wasn't making a war film Raspy. What infuriated me was that if you are going to use historical war as your setting, then you should at least attempt to make it representative, otherwise you risk breaking the suspension of disbelief. For anyone with a slight grasp of the history of the Pacific war, the Japanese simply never surrendered, let alone sat about in pathetic little groups weeping after an action - I found this simple fact so egregiously inappropriate, I'm afraid the rest of Terence Malik's message was superfluous for me. Had he picked a different setting (or even fictionalised the conflict) he may have had more success - as it was, I found his effort severely wanting.

I agree with you about "Waterworld" though - I couldn't sit through it.

"The Expendables" is utterly crap too, by the way.

ROB - I enjoyed The Thin Red Line for what it was. A story. I never even considered it being a 'documentary' type film trying to depict reality. I liked it's moodiness and especially the sound track, which was so at odds with the action. Some of the camera work was excellent in my opinion. 7 out of 10 from me...

Is the Expendables on this list? If not it is now! Only halfway through and even though I'm not expecting miracles I'm getting let down by the action sequences....

I don't think it is going to improve any time soon!

Disney cartoon Wall-E has to be up there as on of the worst. (Why can't they make films like Toy Story and the Aristocats any more?)

Also, any film involving Keira Knightley or Jennifer Aniston usually turns out to be pretty shocking as well.

I thought the Thin Red line the most subtle and thought provoking war film ever. possible the best anti war film ever. Complete opposite to Saving Private Ryan. It was not an exciting action war movie, more a dissection of the whole idea of hell, whilst the rest of life and nature continue serenly

Also you mention the Japanese never ever surrendering? come on, who was it that surrendered in 1945?

Of course lots of Japanese soldiers crumbled and surrendered, not that many, but the ones left on the islands to fight to the death didn't all because the Americans took prisoners, Also the ones depicted in the films had lost their sanity, that's obvious, therefore T Malick is showing us not the famous imperial Bushido 'fall on my sword' types, but humans beings who are no longer rational or governed by mankinds honour or codes

The actors all lived on the island with authentic conditions (apart from dying)

For me one of the bravest and best attempts at making a war film out of an excellent anti war book that was banned in the States for a while

Hmm - I'd actually argue that "Ryan" was a more effective anti-war movie than "Line", as it explored the senseless waste and horror of conflict unflinchingly, and (more importantly) accurately. Far from glorifying war, I thought it explored the effects of warfare on both the human spirit as well as the body quite brilliantly. When I originally saw it at the pictures, the sensory overload of the opening scene left me unmanned and sickened, instead of exhilirated, and the whole film served to exalt the personal sacrifices of the men who fought, rather than their actions.

Malik's effort was more of a philosophical exercise, and a rather weak one at that, IMO. I must admit that I haven't read the book - I'm prepared to believe it was rather better than the film though.

And yes - the Japanese did ultimately surrender, but during the island battles throughout the Pacific they fought with a fanaticism and tenacity that horrified and appalled the US forces tasked with dislodging them. On many islands, the Japanese defenders had to be all but annihilated before victory was assured.

Got another one for this list.

Your Highness.

Supposedly a comedy with a few biggish names, only managed an hour of it. I've seen some crap films in my time but I've usually stuck it out to the end this one had to be turned off. Watched some Star Wars instead!

How come we don't have a best film you ever saw thread? I've seen some epic films that need to be talked about!
