Most Hated Movies

by whuntva | created - 23 Dec 2013 | updated - 06 May 2015 | Public

I do not like everything I watch. I go into every film with the intention of liking it, but there are several exceptions. There have been several movies rated lower than 6/10, but this list is based on my overall attitude and not necessarily the rating I give.

NOTE: I have not seen THAT many bad movies, I only seek out good ones. This is not a list of the worst movies ever, nor is it even a list of what I think the worst movies are. This is just a list of movies that I have seen that I personally dislike.

Comments have been disabled due to too much misunderstanding over this concept.

“This may just be the worst major release film ever made…FIVE directors, and not one had a finished script…Loose from all of reality, the plot makes no sense, not one funny line in the entire script…A product firmly of its time that thankfully has long since passed.”

“It finally happened! This is the worst movie it has ever been my misfortune to sit through. The mere notion of handing a project like this to a director of this pedigree is unfathomable…It stains the reputation of one of the greatest shows of all time and is the only movie to date to give me physical pain while watching it.”

“If I had to pick a worst animated film of all time, I’d probably say this is it…Being for kids does not make it above criticism. Many critics do not harp on movies for kids, but just because it is written for children does not mean it cannot be enjoyable for someone like me, too…What were they thinking?”

“The death of Star Trek is sort of a mercy kill with this…When it bombs; the legacy of the greatest sci-fi franchise ever to be made will wipe the poorest entry from our minds. The only redeeming quality this film has is that you forget about it very quickly.”

“Visually appealing with no reason to care about anything else…intentional convolution is no substitute for good ideas and bombs due to being written lazily…why should I be invested? Without any suspense or even meaningful dialogue, this is the best looking movie I’ve ever wanted to Sucker Punch in the face…And yes, I DID SEE THE EXTENDED CUT!! MY CRITICISMS DERIVE SOLELY FROM IT!!”

Votes: 22,697 | Gross: $37.38M

“The Wild may have gone into production before Madagascar, but if Dreamworks was again the copier, they did it better…The lack of charm in this movie leads to a mess of a plot that feels forced and has nothing redeeming it whatsoever…You can see why this was Dreamworks’ first win in the studio battle.”
