Okay, since this place IS a music-related forum (right?) I just HAD to find an example of the corny songs fromm the above-mentioned movie. This from the creature's theme song:

"Here, the sulfur river flows,
rising when the storm cloud blows,
this is where the creature goes,
lurking in the land he knows.

Perhaps, he dimly wonders why,
is there no other such as I?
To love, to touch before I die,
To listen to my lonely cry."

Sort brings a tear to your arsehole, don't it?

Watched "Nurse Betty" tonight on cable with my girlfriend. Her teenaged son told us beforehand that it "sucked", but his taste is pretty questionable at the best of times.

Who'd've thought he'd be right?


What about a moronic movie you LIKED?

"Legend of Boggy Creek".... the stupidest thing ever set to celluloid. Halfway through, it goes from terrible cheap documentary to terrible cheap docu-drama. And I LOVED it. Funny as hell!

Especially the soundtrack... crappy songs about local characters and "the creature" done by some second cousin of the director or something. All I know is there were a lot of "Crabtrees" in the closing credits.

Another self-consciously shlocky film but with a bigger budget: "Tremors" A classic.

I don't know about all-time stinkers because I tend to forget the names of bad books and bad movies, but one that was seen recently enough to still make me cringe is "Training Day". Most cop movies take some liberties with generally accepted police procedure, but even the "Dirty Harry" movies paid more attention to it than "Training Day". In one scene the cops kill a drug dealer, cut the floor out of his kitchen with a chainsaw, unearth a large trunk full of money, and shoot one of their own team members to make it look like there was a gun battle. Then while the ambulance is taking the wounded cop away the two main characters get in their cop car and drive on off to their next episode. No reports to fill out. No internal investigators to talk with. No need to explain the big hole in the guy's kitchen floor.

I know all about suspension of disbelief, but this one stretched it to the breaking point.

It seems the Sci-Fi channel is out of "scary monster" mode and now into "macho men wearing leather and yelling a lot" mode.

Hollowfox, I like the movie as a work of complete fiction. The thing that bugs me is that they had this amazing true story to work with. They managed to change history and actually make it less dramatic. And for some reason, the end does NOT get easier to take the more times I see it. Probably because that part is roughly the way the real Wallace was killed. Aside from my problems with the re-writing of known history the movie's just too sad.

ballpienhammer, a big YES to Adam Sandler. There are a few other male stars in the same category whose names I seem to have happily forgotten. They'd all be good playing Gilligan in the big-screen re-make of Gilligan's Island. Not THAT would be a moronic movie!

I agree with Jeri -- "Braveheart" is probably one of the worst films as far as history goes -- to be done in the past 10 years. Both Curmudgeon and I screamed at it scene by scene when we watched it. There was NO excuse for such sloppy history!!! It's just plain wrong.

Please note I refreshed a thread from last spring.

Now, for the reason. In an amazing stroke of irony, the Sci-Fi channel is suspending its "Giant Mutant Monster" craze to bring us...

...Braveheart.

Yes, it's "Mad Macs, Woad Warrior." On the SCI-FI channel.
You think they did it on purpose? (Maybe they re-shot the ending and a giant crocodile or land shark eats all the bad guys so Wallace doesn't get killed several times?)

I also thought Forrest Gump was QUITE good. I agree that Castle Keep was a very poor war film. So was another one called Battleground...the most tedious treatment imaginable of the aftermath of the Battle of the Bulge. Oh yeah, and Battle of the Bulge was a piece of very inaccurate nonsense as well...pity they used all those Patton tanks to portray Tigers...they don't look even vaguely similar...and the script was terrible.

Following up on someone's mention of Tom Cruise, I found "Top Gun" perfectly annoying. And how did the Academy ever give "Take My Breath Away" the oscar for best song?

Also, any movie that Mystery Science Theater 3000 has gotten around to mocking should be toward the top (or bottom) of any list.

But the very worst movie I've ever seen is a film that came out of Australia in the late 80s called "The Time Guardian". Carrie Fisher lends her extradordinary talents (speaking facetiously) to this awful waste of time. The fact that it's a sci/fi film gone wrong from the start is bad enough, but the scene where the hero's gun jams and he STABS the evil robot to death (among many other scenes of similar quality) is not to be believed! Yet another hour and a half of my life that I'm never getting back.

Robert Redford's mid-eighties film The Natural had an excellent cast and great camera work. Otherwise, it was probably the most cliche-ridden, unbelievable pile of sentimental horseshit I've ever seen in a sports movie, and that's saying something. From the lightning-struck hickory that produced his bat, to the climactic scene where Redford grits his teeth through a gut-wound to clobber a homer that explodes all of the stadium lighting, this one pulls out all the stops.

This thread and the actors/actresses thread were actually responsible for my TV selection last night. Ya see, the movie "Forrest Gump" and the actor Tom Hanks have taken a beating in these threads so when I realized that Forrest Gump was on a cable movie station, AND, that it had just started, I had to watch it again. I must say, I still liked it, and Tom Hanks' performance is excellent. Not a popular opinion in this thread but hey, life would suck if we all thought the same.....

Re: Mel Gibson. His only reason for making "Braveheart"and "The Patriot"was to bash the British. For some unknown reason he hates Brits and that is why he was associated with the too biggest box office abortions that have ever existed. That's why the "heroes" for both films were cleaned up, sanitized, steam cleaned. So the Brits could look even dirtier than they were.

For Bambicide the film you MUST see is "Bambi Meets Godzilla". It's short but very dramatic.

Regarding "The Patriot" - I had such a VERY BAD feeling about that movie, that I have avoided seeing it entirely up till now, even on video. I know that I would hate it. I avoid a lot of bad movies that way, but every now and then I slip up. I avoided the later Rambo movies for the same reason, and the last Rocky movie as well.

I like some of Mel Gibson's movies...about half of them.

Touche, LH!! You have a good point. Hollywood does tend to go straight over the top on most counts. However, for alternative film, my vote would be for "Return of the Secaucus 7".

First, I'm sorry that I didn't get to mention _The Patriot_ first; the ridiculous American caricature with Snively Whiplash-esque British villians. Was it suppose to make me feel proud to be an American? Or immense hatred towards the British? Couldn't tell. Let's just say that the historical figure that Mel Gibson's character was based on was in reality 1) a ruthless bounty hunter, and 2) owned slaves. Not that I hold that against any figure from the 1700's, but Hollywood cleaned them up into being indentured servants or freedmen. I suppose that Hollywood has to cast people like Gibson into extreme black/white camps, because we're just too dumb to separate shades of gray. Ditto the tarring of the British officers, with their ridiculous posturing and sneering.

Fortunately, I was first to add this one: _Cast Away_, starring this list's favorite actor that you love to hate: Tom Hanks. There really aren't that many nameless and obscure atolls to hide people for 7 years anymore. That and the whole "dilemma" brought on by his return. What a crock. I remember Tony Curtis being in a movie like this, where he returns after his first wife declared him dead with a common-law wife from the boat wreck. The difference being, that was a COMEDY. And the fact that Cast Away was an unabashed, unapologetic 120 minute infonmercial for Fed Ex, compleat with Fed Ex's CEO welcoming the poor Castaway home as icing on the cake. Kill me, kill me...kill me now.

Also on my list is _John Q_, again suffering from the black/white issue polarization syndrome; _Piranha_, lovingly brought to the screen by Roger Corman, and to wrap up my list, _Godzilla 2000_, which was nowhere near as fun as any of its predecessors.

Aw Peg, How can you say that the Blair Witch camera waggling is cinematography. Most 3 year olds could do better. It was so poor it that it destroyed any semblance of reality, let alone horror. All I could do was express extreme disbelief that anything so poorly produced could be taken seriously at all.

The only reason we got to see it at all was, (in SINSULL'S words) "cheap advertising and hype".

Well, yes, I see what you mean...

It was a pretty demanding movie in its own peculiar way. If it had been made in Hollywood (I'm assuming it wasn't) someone would have burst in halfway through and tried to shoot Andre. They would have stopped him (just barely). He would then have reappeared, having miraculously recovered from various fatal wounds, several more times, thus repeatedly breaking Andre's train of thought, which is VERY inconsiderate. They would finally have had to empty an entire clip of 50 cal. bullets into him, cut his head off, throw him down a convenient elevator shaft, and then blow him up "real good" with a half-ton of explosives. It would have been quite exciting, but hard to follow...
