Oh man, my college roommates tried to get me to watch 'From Dusk til Dawn' - knowing full well my incredibly intense abhorrence of gore. "Hey, there's this cool vampire movie on, want to watch it?" I walked in at one of the goriest scenes in the movie and promptly bolted for the bathroom to barf. It's still not the worse movie I've ever seen simply because I haven't actually seen more than 20 seconds of it.
Award for worst movie ever probably goes to 'Ghosts of Mars'. DH and I watched it because, well, we'll watch anything with Ice Cube in it at least once, and I'm desperately in love with Jason Statham.
O..M..G. We expected it to be cheesy, just because nobody seems to know how to make a decent sci-fi movie. It quickly turned into a gratuitous gore-fest and the plot, such as it was, resembled the worst bits of, oh, a SAW movie or crap like that.
Honourable mentions go to Event Horizon, The Core, and that 'Volcano in L.A.' movie, whatever it was called. Or any movie JJAbrams had his sticky, science-ignorant fingers on.
Do made-for-TV-movies count here? Because they're all mostly terrible, but 'Doomsday Prophecy' is just awful. The lead actress looks like a young Laura Dern, and she's not bad, but the writing and the plot were just ridiculous.
*sigh* I have to settle for fun, cheesy sci-fi movies if I want to watch anything at all - I adore 'Fifth Element' and 'Lost in Space', for example (Gary Oldman helps). Someone make a movie from Rendezvous With Rama
, or maybe The Stainless Steel Rat
. Just don't screw it up, please?
