    The harry potter movies. Worst things ever, stupid dialog, crappy "action" scenes" and they are barely like the book.

    Discuss.

    Matrix Trilogy... Take a good idea, and just throw in a crap load of spiritualism out of nowhere, coupled with two of the dullest people in Hollywood screwing to bad techno.

    Don't watch them then, its pretty bloody obvious that your not paying to see the next Goodfellas when you go to see kids movies about a wizard school.

    Throw in the occasional "Whoa" "the one" and "I know kung fu" and there's the dialog.

    Harry Potter is decent IMO.The Spiderman series, however, has gone down the tubes. The first one was decent, the second only made partial sense, and the third just sucked (the CGI couldn't make up for squat in that POS).

    The Saw series, plain and simple. I'm surprised no one else has already mentioned them?:rolleyes:  Anyway, it would have been best kept to have that one movie than to make all those shitty sequels.

    Second the nomination for "Saw" films. Obscure torture porn is NOT quality entertainment.


    And I don't know if it qualifies as a series yet, but... "Twilight." It sickens me on an entirely different level.

    You think Harry Potter was worse? You should watch Eragon... that is so totally not anything like the book!!! That movie's the worse adaptation of a book I've ever watched.

    Universal Soldier.

    A great openning act, and a classic movie of the late 80s to early 90s with Van Damme and Dolph Lundren and then total crap for every subsequent film.

    The same is to be said of Highlander. The first is a bloody classic, with the most awesome soundtrack ever. Then solid medicority forever afterwards.

    My thoughts on the movie series mentioned so far in this thread -

    Highlander:

    2 - GOD NO.
    3 - WTF?
    4 - LOOOL fuck RIGHT off.

    Matrix:
    1 - brilliant.
    2 - messy.
    3 - laughable.

    Spiderman;
    1 - great.
    2 - pretty damn good.
    3 - shite.

    Harry Potter:
    1 - tolerable.
    2 - better.
    3 - better.
    4 - damn good.
    5 - pretty damn good.

    Saw:
    1 - interesting idea.
    2 - not bad.
    3 - SHIT.
    4 - ALSO SHIT.
    5 - watchable, until the shittiest ending I have EVER seen.

    Resident Evil:
    1 - enjoyable.
    2 - average at best.
    3 - drivel.

    Universal Soldier:
    1 - fucking GREAT.

    Matri, Spider-Man and Harry Potter as worst movie series ever? Man, some of you have just flushed any cinematic credibility you had straight down the crapper.

    Harry Potter barely resembles the books? Besides the titles, characters, settings, and main plots you mean?

    Spider-Man? OK, the CGI can be weak, often because they are pushing it to its limits. All three have flaws, and all three have merits, but as worst movie series ever? Have you even seen Superman 3 and 4? Shit, Batman and Robin alone brings the Batman series as a whole below Spider-Man's average.

    The Matrix? Overindulgent, I will grant, but there is still some terrific stuff to be found in each film.

    As for Saw... at least it delivers what it promises. If your not into that, obviously it won't work. The first, as Draven points out, had an interesting idea, but at least one storyline didn't work at all. Saw 2 really didn't do the "torture porn" thing as much as people might expect, and I give 2 and 3 credit for trying to tell a story that assumes viewers have been paying attention to the previous entries. I've not seen 4 or 5, however.

    Resident Evil? Hrm. 1 was terribly disappointing, the first movie based on a game that actually had less story and more action than the game itself. RE2, from what little I've seen, was just plain bad, and RE3 mostly bland and forgettable B-movie stuff (akin to Sci-Fi channel fare). I'd put this below Saw simply because I don't think it really gives most of the fans what they want.

    I've not seen any of the Universal Soldier films...

    Highlander has to be one the leading contenders because of its complete inability to satisfy fans. Highlander 1 was a blast, but I can't imagine how so many well paid people could so completely screw up three different sequels without it being deliberate sabotage.

    On the comedy front, I'd like to toss in my 2 cents for the "Not Another... Movie" series and the "Scary Movie" series. They do seem to have an audience, but I'm not it.

    Really, I think we're just being too selective in our candidates.

    Horror offers a good range of bad film series - The Ghoulies, Leprechaun, Warlock, Chud, Wishmaster, even Friday the 13th was an iconic image wrapped in crap.

    Kiddie films? I see another Beethoven headed our way. The Ernest movies. Mr. Bean. Lots and lots of crap here not even worth digging out of my memory.

    And then we have literally hundreds, if not thousands, of really bad porn series to consider...

    I haven't seen all the Harry Potters or any of the Universal Soldiers, but with those exceptions, I don't know if I'd call any of the series mentioned "the worst" - but I would say every single one of them trailed off further into the series. In fact in most cases I'd say the first two of any of these mentioned were pretty good if not great.

    I'm racking my brain trying to come up with a series that was consistently bad all the way through... Of course if the first one was bad, I probably didn't bother watching the rest...

    I would have to give honorable mention to Highlander: The Source for being quite possibly the MOST DISAPPOINTING ending to a series ever. I mean they took everything about being a Highlander fan, chopped it up into little bits and took a huge crap all over it.

    Yes actually, because the movies cut out the little things that made the books great
