Going with the crowd here and saying High School Musical. What's with all this hype? The movie was horrendous, and the second one looks even worse.

The Stephen King adaptation 'Dreamcatcher' is the worst film ever made, bar none.
Though I think most Stephen King adaptations belong in a seperate category of terrible for the sake of fairness.

You know, there's a sub-genre of bad movie that goes unmentioned by most.

Now, this is, of course, a highly subjective thing, but what about the films that aren't really bad, just... stunningly mediocre?

Of course, there's no reason to stick them on the worst film of all time list, but these sorts of films make me far angrier (yes I get mad over films, shaddap) then a thousand frequently lambasted bad films ever will.

Why?

Because some people have convinced themselves that they are good. TOO MANY PEOPLE LIKE THEM. THEY ARE FAR TOO FONDLY REMEMBERED.

THEY DON'T DESERVE IT, DAMMIT!

Two prominent examples I can think of are Event Horizon and Swordfish. Both pieces of disposable entertainment, that appear to be held in high regard amongst too many circles waaaaaay longer than they should have. Not amongst critics, of course, nor even amongst the greater population, but... films that have got a sort of cult status, or films that you remember being much better than they are.

I don't think I'm explaining it right.

Suffice to say, those two films make me very grumpy.

I think you have to have lived in the U.S. during the 80s to fully appreciate Red Dawn.

"Which part?  The Russians invading America or C. Thomas Howell being a tough guy?"

"Both."

I think that 2010 is actually a better film than 2001, because you can watch all of 2001 without fast-forwarding and still not know what was going on, whereas 2010 not only makes sense, but it also explains what was happening in 2001.

Plus it had a message of peace and Roy Schnider and shit.
I quite enjoyed 2010; found it to be a worthy return to the world of its legendary forebear.
I was interested to note, when watching it, how well the original's special effects still stood up against the sequel made 16 years later.
Although Peter Hyams is not Stanley Kubrick, and explosions in vacuum don't make noise, dammit!

No argument there.  2001 has some pretty impressive visual effects.  Ahead of its time, really.

Still, I don't watch movies for the special effects; I watch them for the stories.

Me too.

The novel is a lot more coherent, for everyone's information.

The movie would have had greater appeal if Bowman had been replaced by Captain James T Kirk...
...heh heh... kidding.

Oh, another Worst Movie of All Time:
Star Trek V: The Final Frontier.

I just saw a movie that has GOT to be considered for worst movie of all time:  Blue Hawaii.  It's an Elvis movie, and is basically an excuse for him to release a soundtrack record.  The writing is lame, every actor in the film is WAY over the top, the music is pure lamo Elvis ("uh, thank you very much" ).  Star Trek V looks like Lawrence of Arabia next to this pile of crap.  It's so cheesy that it's unintentionally one of the funniest films I've seen.  It's worth the rental fee, just to see how movies should NOT be made...

All of Elvis's movies are shit. I mean who thought that Elvis would be a great actor? All the movies revolve around Elvis trying to score a threesome.

For a movie, it's actually pretty decent, it's just nowhere near as good to be the phenomenon people made it out to be

No, the one with the whales is Star Trek 4: The Voyage Home.
It's generally considered one of the better ones.

Dungeons and Dragons... Too obvious*?

True, but it's much entertaining that way.

Imagine Lucas had shot Star Wars in the same manner as Kubrick did 2001.  tongue

You kinda have to watch the two before it first... It's sort of a saga.

And a bad movie, eh? How 'bout... 'Attack of the Killer Tomatos'? It's so bad, it's not really quite good, but at the same time, yes, it's really really bad. Funny sorta, perhaps, but bad. The sort of thing you'd recommend to a friend as a prank.

Star Trek IV is one of the better Star Trek movies, but you have to admit that some of the jokes are a little corny.

I started watching Star Trek V on TV. I couldn't stand watching it all, so I turned on Attack of the Clones.
