questionswhat's the worst movie you've seen so far this…


I was disappointed in Oz and Die Hard. I'm sure I've seen some pretty sorry ones prior to those, they are just the ones on my mind. We saw Oz yesterday and it seemed interminable. Unlike the Tin Man from the original Oz, this prequel lacked heart, dedicating itself instead to super saturated CGI and eye-poking 3D effects which fell literally flat in the 2D version we watched. Die Hard was just one silly over-adrenalized action sequence piled on another with hardly a breath for storytelling. I love action movies, but lately they seem more like slapstick cartoons than exciting films. Roadrunner has nothing on the indestructible John McTiernan, and his enemies are as incapable as Coyote of understanding that the laws of physics just don't seem to apply where he's concerned.


Django unchained. It was the best movie I have seen in theaters in a few years, unfortunately it was the only movie I went to the theaters to see this year so it's the best and worst by default.

edit: oh shoot that came out in 2012 so it doesn't even work that well.


@moondrake: I have to disagree, I also saw the 2d version of oz and I must say I really liked it. I have a hard time with movies that are 2 hours sometimes because of sitting for so long but this movie held my interest pretty good.


After thinking about it, I actually haven't watched a movie this year.


I have seen five movies so far this year -

Hansel and Gretel
Warm Bodies
A Good Day to Die Hard
Jack the Giant Slayer
Oz, the Great and Powerful

I agree with @moondrake about Die Hard - one action scene after another with little else.

As much as I like Jeremy Renner, the cartoonish/Tarantino style bloodshed of Hansel and Gretel kind of ruined the movie for me. I think the movie would have been better with good old fashion blood and gore.

I saw Oz yesterday (in 2D) and it was a little drawn out is places and I spent a lot of time looking for Sam Raimi's brother Ted and his buddy Bruce Campbell, but I don't think it was bad or that the missing 3D changed my perception of the film.

So, I will have to say that Hansel and Gretel gets my vote for the worst movie I have seen this year (Warm Bodies get my vote for best)


If you count "movies" that I've watched at home on DVD, the worse one I've seen this year -- in fact the worst one ever -- was Oversexed Rugsuckers from Mars.

Suffice it to say that parts appear to have been shot with a VHS camcorder, parts on 8mm film, the sound is often out of sync, the acting is terrible, and the storyline (if you can call it that) is even worse.

If you're looking for the ultimate gag gift, this is it, by far!


Holy cow, you folks watch a lot of movies. I haven't seen anything this year.

Everything I want to see comes out in the Summer, even then I'll wait to rent most of those anyway. I may see Star Trek Into Darkness and Man of Steel in IMAX 3D, though. I did see The Hobbit in HFR IMAX 3D, last year, but I am not sure I will do that again. That's probably it for the whole year.


The film"hit and thin...with dax shepard....horrible


Rented "The Room" on Netflix. I bought the MP3 commentary from to make it bearable. By far the worst thing I saw this year.

Worst movie I saw last year was Birdemic.

I'm sorry. Was I not supposed to seek out the absolute worst movies possible to watch?


@curtisuxor: I work a 4/10 schedule with Fridays off. My dog and I volunteer as a therapy team on Friday morning, and after we visit the dog park I drop him at home and meet up with friends to go to lunch and to a matinee. Then we graze at Costco, do whatever shopping any of us need, pick up some take-out for dinner, pick up my dog and head to our role-playing game across town. It's a fun and productive way to take advantage of having a day off when most people are working. We see just about all the new movies that way, some great, some not so great, but always fun to spend time with friends.


@theoneill555: Joxer and Autolycus were in Oz?! Was Xena there too? :-)

I don't think I've seen any new movies this year. Nothing has looked interesting enough to me, but The Incredible Burt Wonderstone might change that. Looks like it could be really funny (or really awful).


Silver Linings Playbook
I don't get what all the hype was about, I thought it was terrible. My friend didn't like it either, we were both really disappointed.


Have not watched any movies in theaters this year. I find that waiting until it hits Red Box is far cheaper.

The only three movies I've watched this year are:
The Bourne Legacy

Out of those three, I'd say The Bourne Legacy was the worst. I like Jeremy Renner as an actor, but really couldn't get into it. I found it boring, and ended up puttsing around on the Internet with my Woot! laptop while watching it.
