    Worst movie you've ever seen in the movie theatre?

    I've been inspired to create this thread after reading the "most overrated" movie thread...

    For me it's the movie "Jumper" which came out either in '07 or '08 and starred Annakin Skywalker himself, Hayden Christiansen.

    Essentially about a guy who figures out he can teleport all over the world who is hunted by some crazy fanatic played by Samuel L. Jackson (I love Sam as much as the next guy, but he has been in some stinkers over the years).

    Just awful...horrible, horrible movie. It's never explained how the main character got this awesome power, or why he's being hunted by Jackson's character, and the main lead is a total d-bag as well, which makes it hard to care about what happens to him. I usually don't regret spending money at the theater, since I'm somewhat discriminating about what I go to see, but no amount of money too small would have been enough to justify seeing this crap in the theater. Worst part of it is that I saw it at night, so I didn't even get the daytime matinee discount.

    I cannot stand Hayden Christiansen either. I think he's an awful actor.

    Tried to sneak into Saw II, sister went to Elizabethtown. We got caught and sat through an excruciating 5 minutes before going to walmart and screwing around for two hours.

    Prometheus. It was trying to be intelligent, thoughtful science fiction but it was just incredibly dumb. I'm pretty sure the running time was roughly 6 hours.

    I have a tie of a few:

    Volcano with Tommy Lee Jones

    Talented Mr. Ripley. I just hate that effing movie.

    Bean with Rowan Atkinson

    Battlefield Earth.

    Hayden is a bad actor in everything...except the true story Shattered Glass. Fantastic movie and he's not terrible. Watch it.

    Godzilla in 1998. First time I realized a lot of my friends in school had very difference preferences compared to mine.

    Ghost Rider. 2012 was close, though. King Kong (2005) gets the bronze.


    I was a victim of a series of accidents, as are we all.

    Re: Worst movie you've ever seen in the movie theatre?

    we don't go to a ton of movies and usually only ones with good reviews/we really wanted to see, so not too many bummers in there but Quantum of Solace (James Bond movie) was definitely disappointing.........especially after how good Casino Royale was.

    Jumper is so bad it makes QOS look good by comparison, but yeah, you're right; coming off the heels of what I consider the best Bond movie ever it was a disappointment.

    That really WAS terrible, and I also saw it in the theater. However, I did laugh at "serious" parts of Spiderman 3 and the third Pirates movie in the theater, both were just terrible. I don't know, three-way tie?

    Oh, and the X-Men where Kelsey Grammer is blue. I don't know what one that is. It was bad, too.
