    Bad movies.

    While wasting 90+ minutes of my life watching "Cloverfield," I got to thinking.

    What is the most disappointing movie you've ever seen in the theatre? Have you ever walked out on a movie?

    Re: Bad movies.

    I went a saw Miami Vice at the cheap theater at one point last year. I would have rather just given some one my 2 bucks and saved the 90 minutes. By far the worse movie I have ever seen.

    Re: Bad movies.

    Movies totally acceptable to walk out on


    Plan 9 from Outer Space (Queen was over the top)

    The Claw (except my driver was not around so I could go home early)

    Godzilla vs Monster Zero (really rinky dink dubbing)

    Many Westerns - Terror of Tiny Town (1938) The Terror of Tiny Town B-Movie Review (just plain unbelievable)

    Jane Fonda in Barberella (half the people walked out)-

    Re: Bad movies.

    Most bad movies I tend to block out of my mind and try to forget them... but one excruciatingly bad movie I've seen recently was Meet the Robinsons. I'm the first one, usually, to give animated movies a chance. When Pixar had been absorbed by Disney, I had heard that the creative minds at Pixar were appointed in "sprucing up" the latest CG film Disney had been working on.

    Needless to say, this has been the only film I've ever fallen asleep during. If that doesn't speak for how bad Meet the Robinsons was, I don't know what does.

    A really good site for such things is badmovies.org. You can read great reviews of pretty much every bad movie you can think of.

    Master of Disguise with Dana Carvey. It was his first real movie outside of Wayne's World. My friend and I knew it was a kid sort of movie, but we thought that it would still have good content...we were wrong.

    Re: Bad movies.

    I never walk out on a movie once I've paid for it. I spent the money, so I'm staying no matter what. But, there are movies I've gone too where I get the **** out of the theater as quickly as possible once it's finished so I can go throw up. Recent ones that come to mind include Paycheck and National Treasure (the first one--I refuse to see the second one because the first one sucked so hard).

    See I enjoyed Meet the Robinsons. I thought Cars kind of sucked.

    Re: Bad movies.

    It's hard to pick, there have been so many. Recently I would have to go with "Mr Magorium's Magic Emporium". I felt so bad for Dustin Hoffman, and found it hard to believe he also did Rainman and Tootsie.
