All I can remember is when HBO first came around many years back I turned it on. My reward was a movie called "The Tin Drum". Now I'm no big knowledgeable "art" guy but this was just impossible to watch. Some kid banging on a drum and screaming. After a few minutes of this it was just unbearable.

I think that was probably THE TIN DRUM.

If you ever find yourself in an unbreakable good mood, full of cheer and the love of life, but decide you'd really rather feel hopeless so that you can work up the courage to stick your head in a lit oven, all you really need is ten minutes of German cinema. That'll do the trick.

I remembered another absolutely rancid movie theater experience from the '90s -- BATMAN & ROBIN (1997). That absolutely destroyed Alicia Silverstone's career just 2 years after CLUELESS (awesome movie) catapulted her to absolute stardom. Bad career move (perhaps overconfident at that point?), though she did what she could with the ridiculous "Batgirl" character; the fault lay in the horrible script. Who wrote that thing, a first grader? The prior BATMAN movies were decent (even the maligned BATMAN FOREVER [1995] imo), though personally I found BATMAN RETURNS (1992) a bit too dark and disturbing for my taste, but that was the whole point, so I appreciate that for what it is.

Oh and FLUBBER with Robin Williams, also from 1997. What happened to filmmakers in the second half of that decade, they just got extremely lazy or something? Why would anyone ever think it was a good idea to make a movie that's basically about a friendly version of the thing from THE BLOB (1958) but that never grows just bounces everywhere? People in 1958 even thought the horror version was silly (though fun), this one was just...not even small children were amused.

Flubber was a remake of the Absent Minded Professor, not the Blog. It was pretty funny.

I'm not exactly sure which is worse ,but let I can name a few movies I really didn't like.

RollerBall (2002) Saw this in the movie theater just a horrible movie.

The Texas Chainsaw Massacre the beginning (2006) Horrible acting and just a completely unnecessary film to make.

The Hills have eyes 2 (2007) not scary or entertaining at just sick.

Drag me to Hell (2009) really dumb

The residents evil movies (except for the first one ,but even that one was medicore at best)

The Cabin in the Woods (2012) just a really stupid film ,but I will admit the last 10-15 mins and ending made me laugh.

12 monkeys (1995) saw this on DVD a few years ago started off okay ,but it got really stupid as it went along.

Knowing (2009) Dumb movie with bad acting, and a really stupid ending ,but I will admit the scene with the plane crash was kinda creepy despite the bad special effects and fake looking fire.

I hated "The House" with Will Farrell and Amy Pohler
Just stupid and obviously had such a low opinion of any audience that might go see it
I am afraid Will Farrell is floundering and Pohler no better
I don't know who is giving them advice or if they are taking any but Farrell has deep pockets
I don't know about Pohler
They are going to need them if they continue with such stupid affronts...

Beauty and the Beast (2017).

Soullessly populated by sterile, cold CGI creatures and structures, and starring a charisma-free "actress" who cannot act or sing her way out of a paperbag.
I am still trying to understand why this monstrosity grossed over a billion dollars.

Emma Watson of the Harry Potter series?

1. Sphere. Derivative, pretentious crap that confuses ripping off scenes wholesale for "homage"

2. Pompeii, the type of film where you go, "It couldn't get any worse..." and then it does.

3. Jupiter Ascending--it's like someone watched a sci-fi marathon on acid, then tried shooting a movie based on their memory of all the movies they saw the night before

4. Dementia 13--complete crap. Don't care if it was shot by a future acclaimed director.

5. Akira--before anybody shoots me, the manga was a masterpiece. The movie, however, was a complete and total mess, like Otomo had no idea how to adapt his own work to film.

6. Suddenly, Last Summer--this movie is the worst kind of B movie trash masquerading as "arty" drama.

7. Salo--again, one of those trashy films that gets seen as "arty" because it's shot in a pretentious style.

8. In the Realm of the Senses--same reason as Salo.

9. Experiment in Terror--the "funniest" movie that Blake Edwards ever made.
