One that remains in my memory for sheer boring awfulness is 'John and Mary' starring Dustin Hoffman and Mia Farrow. Dustin had made 'The Graduate' and 'Midnight Cowboy' and was a new, major movie star. He decided to try a romantic leading role. It was just awful.......

I have just discovered the whole masterpiece is available on you-tube. Don't waste your precious time......

Maybe not the worst, but definitely the most disappointing...

Batman & Robin
Die Another Day
Godzilla (1998 version)
The Phantom Menace

It started out so well....a third of the way through, it became awful.

A couple of years ago I watched most of "Rock & Rolla" for some reason, really bad & boring. Last week I tried to watch "John Wick: Chapter 2" & had to turn it off after 20 minutes - it was so boring & empty, obviously aimed for those raised on video games & not interested much in plot or character. It was just one absurd fight scene after another in some weird world.

I have seen literally thousands of horror and other cult films, so staying away from the low budget crap and picking specifically major studio failures, off the top of my head...

The Lady in the Water
Eyes Wide Shut
Star Wars Episodes 1,2, and 3
Matrix II (never watched 3)
Amityville remake
Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake
Planet of the Apes (with Marky-Mark)
Superman 3
Blind Date (1987)
Timothy Dalton James Bond (cant remember the name)
The Ostermund Weekend (love Pekinpah, but I honestly did not understand it-too much cocain)
Alien 3 and 4
Titanic (glorification of female adultery and narcisissm)
The Hulk
Gremlins II (for pure hillarity, see Keye and Peele Skit on it)
Minority Report
Top Gun
Coppola's Dracula
Valentine (had to take a little walk in the middle of the movie)
Batman (Tim Burton)
Batman II (I believe that time actually stopped while I was watching)
Batman and Robin
Mother, Jugs and Speed
Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade
Hellrasier III
Natural Born Killers
Charlie's Angels
Jaws 3-D
Remake of All the King's Men with Sean Penn
Much Ado About Nothing with Keanu Reeves (his name will forever be synonymous with Shakespeare)
Happy feet (the horrors of Penguins singing about sex)

I could probably think of hundreds of others.

Star Wars Episode VII (just a carbon copy of the original with a feminist agenda that left out Luke, R2, and 3PO for most of it and had Han and Leia divorced with a bratty teenage Sith-wannabee as a son. I mean Kylo makes Anakin in the PT look good.)
Sandlot 2 (same problem as Star Wars Episode VII, except perhaps a bit worse)
Scary Movie 3 (just seemed dumb to me)
Frozen (highly overrated)
Monster House
Angels in the Infield (also a sort of carbon copy, and an inferior one too, of the original, though does have the saving grace of having the Devil and demons in it, which was a nice twist from the original (which technically itself wasn't an original as there was one from the 1950's too.))
All Dogs Go to Heaven (probably one of the only Don Bluth movies I don't like. Main character is hardly better than the villain and he doesn't even reform, even in the sequel, but is still as bad as ever. Bad example for kids.)
The Da Vinci Code (it's not just the Mary Magdalen thing, it's that the whole premise of the story is to glorify feminism and vilify Christianity.)

TITANIC (1997)
There, I said it. It took me 20 years but I said it.

TWILIGHT (2011) and its sequels
Yeah, I went there.

Saw it in the movie theater, and to this day I have absolutely no idea what kind of pills everyone was taking given its acclaim by audiences, critics, and the academy.

Wow, thinking about it, the 1990s was a horrible decade for movies, wasn't it? Not that it's gotten much better since. My dad and I walked out of the theater midway through after struggling to stay awake through the first half after a friend had highly recommended this snoozefest.
