The Black Dahlia. My husband and I walked out of the theatre, something we've never done before (or since). I would have rather jammed toothpicks in my eyeballs. Awful doesn't even begin to describe this movie.

That's not true, Ed Wood considered himself a legitimate filmmaker and aspired to be great but he was so inept that he's remembered for how terrible his films are and unintentionally funny.

At 50, I could write a book about all the awful ones I've seen. Especially here lately.

I find that a lot of movies that win the Academy Award for Best Picture are often some of the worst movies I've ever seen.

I just watched a stinkfest movie with Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson. It culminated in a fight on a bridge on the US/ Canadian border and it was bad all the way across the board. Bad writing, bad acting, bad directing, bad special effects.

Geena Davis was once an actress I liked at least she was pretty and good in some comedic movies. Heavy drama just isn't her thing and action... no. Samuel L. Jackson has a tendancy to do the same character over and over again and can get very annoying. He's good in a jerk kind of way, he makes a decent heavy. He's done some great movies early on but also some real bad ones. But even the greats have done bad movies.
The movie just came across as formulaic and clumsy with cardboard characters and wooden acting.

When I was young, I wanted to see the Flintstones movie. The one in 1994. I must've been, what, 8 or so.

Even at that young an age, I thought it was utter, utter junk. We were going to see either that, or The Mask, and we made the wrong decision.

I hated The Mask as well. Jim Carrey scared me as a child, but it wasn't as bad as the diabolical Flintstones movie.

Also, Birdemic. But I love it BECAUSE it's just the worst movie ever. Like The Room. So bad it's good.
