question of the day: What’s the worst movie you’ve ever seen?
Today’s question comes from Thomas, who asked me -- and now I ask you:
What’s the worst movie you’ve ever seen?
I’m talking real, down-to-earth, honest-to-awfulness, worst movie you’ve ever seen. Not the movie that’s so bad it’s great. Not a guilty pleasure you acknowledge is terrible but you have a sneaking fondness for anyway. Nope: I want you to dredge up the most excruciating memory of a movie-watching experience you can manage without blowing out a cranial artery.
It’s a tough choice for me, I find. Dumb and Dumber was the first movie I ever thought about walking out on (this was before I was reviewing films), it was so unbearable to watch. The Human Centipede (First Sequence) is entirely without merit, and sociopathically inhuman, and inhumane, and made me ill, not from the images onscreen but from thinking about the kind of person who would think this was a good thing to make a movie about. Diary of a Mad Black Woman is so incompentent and incomprehensible a film that it may well be the worst movie I’ve ever seen.
Your turn. Have fun... if you can.
