    Forest gump was a rather boring, insulting movie and poked fun at those who had mental defects for all of the movie and portraying him as generally stupid. The only reason that it is counted as a good movie is because of the principle at the end, that life is a box of chocolates and you dont know what its like until you try them.

    Compared to GINO, it wasn't. Funny, the American Godzilla isn't mentioned either. Hmph.

    I'm more pissed at how bad ROTF made this franchise look. ROTF was the only TF film awful enough to deserve to be on this poll, if you ask me, and ever since it's been released we've seen Transformers as, well, a punching bag.

    LEONARD PART 6!!!!!!!!! I was 7-8 when that came out. I remember asking my mom how good the original 5 were after seeing it and wondering why they made a 6th... Joke was on me!

    And why in the hell isn't Waterworld on that list....

    Well, the 2nd and 3rd are on there. They were doublegarbage. Maybe they just wanted to keep things as a set.

    Hrmmm, checking out the site, it's a pretty long list... I suppose I could see them on there, if only to round things out. There's a long line of shit ahead of them though, I'd say, even if ROTF (and to a somewhat lesser extent, DOTM) had some massive, MASSIVE problems.

    Don't agree they're the worst? Vote for something else, I guess. There's a lot to choose from. There's a bunch that I'd say are even more unwatchable that aren't even on the list, but I guess they stuck to titles they've reviewed.


    It is.

    It's what MST3K evolved into.

    Only without the memorable characters, humour, charm or likability.

    I'm shocked by the lineup of "worst movies" in that list. It made me feel an outcast because a lot of them are my favorites. :( 


    Also, this is not where I've wanted to put my 1000th post... oh well.

    Battleship is on there, too. I don't think it's the lackluster two hour snooze fest critics make it out to be.

    You have to understand how being bad works to these people. When something is really bad- that is to say, something where the acting and writing are completely illogical and against reality to the point of comedy (for example, the Room, Batman & Robin or any of Uwe's excretions)- it becomes enjoyable to watch for entirely the wrong reasons. Michael Bay's films, however, aren't that bad; they are in fact just the regular kind of bad.

    And these are the guys who comment over things happening in movies to try and make comedy of it. Is that really possible with these? Beyond pointing out how many times optimus massacres somebody, there isn't a great deal to make fun of here. "Oh look, there's another explosion"; "Oh look, there's another shot of Megan Fox uncomfortably stretching to show off more skin"; "Oh look, there's another lingering shot of military hardware". It gets old fast.

    And even by that twisted, inane logic that makes no sense to anybody besides them, that still doesn't even explain it.

    And of course, I didn't see any of that in the list description. They put the movie son the list of "worst movies of all time." Not "the worst movies to us because of our job and our way of viewing movies and analysing them."

    Plus there's the fact that they aren't that bad. Many critics liked the first movie and agree the third is an improvement over the second. They're massive (and I mean massive) financial successes (DOTM was the number four movie OF ALL TIME for a while) and most casual movie-going people (i.e., the target audience. people who don't spend their lives obsessing over each movie released like we do) like them. There are way more festering, irredeemable hunks of theatrical trash out there than a few harmless movies based on toys.

    So no.

    Highlander 2 definitely deserves to be on that list.

    It was so bad, Highlander 3 should have opened with an apology.

    Would have been nice if DotM did that too.

    I'm more insulted that Star Trek 6, SpeedRacer, and Cloverfield are on that list.

    The Room is a masterpiece compared to any of the Transformers movies.

    That's some bullshit right there. I've seen movies that are way worst than the Bay movies. Plus they're not even bad. TF1 was awesome and DOTM was ok. They need to watch Batman and Robin. Or The Last Airbender

    All 3 are in the list with The Last Airbender, Battlefield Earth, Birdemic, Troll 2, The Wicker Man, Batman & Robin, Superbabies, Super Mario Bros., The Room (that should win), & Jack & Jill (that should definetly win). Transformers 1-3 are safe, & are also probably the best movies on that list, however, this is Rifftrax we're talking about. They'll choose ROTF, The Room, Birdemic, Battleship, Troll 2, The Wicker Man, Jack & Jill, or The Twilight Saga, guaranteed.

    Anyone who thinks Cloverfield is one of the worst films of all time really isn't that great of a critic, tbh. A LOT of these don't deserve to be here including ROTF which I personally hate.

    They put Forrest Gump on there? Why?

    Jeez, I guess after watching all those bad movies on MST3K must have taken a toll on Mike Nelson's brain.
