    Isn't there already a thread about this? If not then I'll say Fight Club.

    I hated "The Boy in the Striped Pajamas". Not because it struck me as sad (maybe I'm just heartless), it just struck me as pretentious and overdone. As soon as I realized where the ending was going, I kind of went "Really? We're doing this?" You have to be really careful with...

    ..."everyone dies" endings. I was told in a writing class that it can risk feeling amateurish (because it's an easy out, along with "it was all a dream"). That's the way this movie struck me. As soon as I saw where the ending was going, I instantly wanted those two hours of my life back. The author probably thought this ending was so clever and heartbreaking, so they wrote an entire novel to get to that one moment. Could have been a short story (and a short film by extension). Ironically, I can't recall anything except the ending several years after seeing it. If I had gotten up to use the bathroom and missed the ending, I don't think I'd even be able to recall watching this movie.

    I also didn't like Back Hawk Down or Dunkirk. Both felt like "Call of Duty: The Movie". Tons of loud noises and too much focus on 'immersion' over storytelling and development of likable characters. Not saying that immersing your audience into a war zone is bad (it's wanted to an extent), but the basic guidelines of storytelling shouldn't be thrown out the window in favor of it. I would have turned off both halfway through if my family hadn't wanted to finish. (It seems a lot of war movies are low on my list. Not because I hate the genre, just because the ones I've seen haven't been executed well). I keep meaning to make a longer post about Dunkirk at some point.

    I'd put Transformers Revenge of the Fallen and Dark of the Moon on the list. I have a slight soft spot for them purely because of the brand, but they're probably some of the technically worst movies I've seen, as well as my least favorites of the series. TLK might be technically worse, but I thought it had a slightly higher entertainment value, so I'm not going to list it.

    Maybe the third Hobbit? I kind of hate saying that because it had a few good moments, but overall it was kind of a nothing movie. The 'Hobbit' himself barely does anything, and most of the battle is boring and could have been cut. I'd also say Attack of the Clones and (yes) Last Jedi.

    Another one I kind of hate listing because of a few good moments: The Amazing Spiderman 2. This one has some entertainment value, but it's possibly one of the most commercial and pandering movies I've ever seen. It's not even a movie as much as it's just a vessel to advertise for products, albums, toys, and future movies.

    I'd also throw some of the Illumination movies on this list, namely Minions, Despicable Me 2 and 3. Just trash movies that only exist for a quick buck. If film is an art form, these feel like the mass-produced art on tissue boxes or something. I'd probably also list some of the DreamWorks ones if they were fresher on my mind (it's been years since I've seen most of those).

    Note: the first three were movies I was legitimately miserable, bored, and disconnected from, and wouldn't watch again. The "nerd" movies on the list were all entertaining enough that I'd consider watching again, but I don't think they're technically good. I generally avoid the typical hated movies like Twilight, so these might come across as a bit more highbrow than some other people's "worst movies".

    It’s hard for me to say what is worst but the only time I ever paid for a movie ticket and walked out in the middle was for Drop Dead Fred.

    Lol, only thing that could have saved that movie would be a pool scene.

    Battlefield Earth and Mortdecai. Suicide would have been more invigorating than sitting through those.

    However, the worst movie I ever saw in the theater was Transcendence. I wish I never paid to see that one.

    I want to say the Meg, just for making me so pissed recently. BUT there is no doubt that the single WORST movie ever made is Highlander II The Quickening. That fucking movie I swear to god I’m still pissed almost 30 years later.

    Justice League has to be one of the worst films I ever wasted time watching just below Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.

    Hellraiser 9: Revelations
    What was once one of the most prominent horror franchises ever cranked out this furious turd. Made solely for the sake of holding onto the rights, this movie looks, feels & is acted like someone’s first attempt at making a real movie. Like, with their friends playing the parts & filmed inside their own home and special effects bought from the local thrift store. It’s baaaaaad.

    If you enjoy sitting through bad movies, you will still have a terrible time with this one.

    Yeah, one of my friends recently told me about the situation @Mako Crab just described. Pathetic but happens all the time.

    Battlefield Earth is by the worst movie ever made. All copies should be buried in the desert with Atari ET

    The Last Knight was at least still mildly enjoyable for the cringy scenes and bad writing.

    I hated The Crimes of Grindelwald, there isn’t much to say about the dialogue and writing, but good lord nothing made sense. I appreciated how Harry Potter films were consistently good unlike most multi-film franchises, and to see this abomination run that record into the ground just disappoints me so much.

    Batman v. Superman is not the worst movie ever, or even the worst I’ve ever seen but it is certainly the worst I have ever seen relative to its budget, talent and subject.

    Hm, I’m not sure what the worst is (I’ll have to think about it) but for recent stinkers, the last Predator movie actually made me angry at all of their bullshit choices.

    Oooh good call. That movie was horrendous. God damn but Aliens and Predator can’t catch a break. In fact can we throw Covenant and Prometheus in the mix? It’s impressive watching Ridley Scott ruin his own franchise.
