THE ULTIMATE GUIDE TO ULTIMATE SHIT

Heaven Before I Die

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0119270/

Described as a "comedy in the vein of Forest Gump", Haven Before I die deals with the story of Jacob, a Palestinian who is "deformed" and walks like Charlie Chaplin. He makes his way to the "promised land" - CANADA, and discovers a talent for imitating Charlie Chaplin and thus utilizes his disability to his own benefit! He becomes rich and famous as a result, but "loses the way" by dancing and getting drunk in a nightclub. The finale of the film involves Jacb going to a special bar where "dead people go before they die, to discuss live before and after" (exact dialogue). There he meets the spirit of Khalil Gibran (played by Omar Sharif, who clearly had some poker debts to pay off). Leonard Cohen' makes an appearance, portrayed by the worst look and soundalike in cinema history.

Train to Hell

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0107683/

Hugh Grant plays a journalist who catches a train to Venice from Germany. He is hot on the trail of a gang of neo nazis and is going to expose them all in his coming book - along the way he meets up with some random women on the train and sleeps with her, but is constantly being harassed by a group of german neo nazis that look like they came straight out of a gay techno club, who are led by Malcolm Mcdowell.

Once Hugh Grant gets to Venice, the plot takes a radically different twist... he gets amnesia in a car crash and forgets everything about the women he shagged in the train (did I forget to mention they've fallen in love by this point?). It doesn't make any sense from this point, and the nazis seem to be forgotten about. I don't know if this film is supposed to be, other than shit.

Favorites:

The Blues Brothers
The Big Lebowski
Blade Runner
The Fifth Element
Tron
Labyrinth
Brazil
Ghostbusters
Total Recall
Monty Python's Life of Brian

Worst:

Spice World (my sister kept watching this repeatedly)
The Covenant (it's like Dragonball crossed with Twilight)
Underworld (maybe I just don't like vampire movies)
Titanic (well, it would be good if you cut out the love story)
Star Wars Episode II (I can't even remember the plot)
Star Trek V (never let Shatner direct again)

TBQH, there aren't a lot of films I hate because I can usually spot bad ones from a mile away, so don't bother with them (I was forced to see most of the ones on my list), and I usually LOVE movies that are "so bad it's good" (at least in terms of comedic value).

5. Blair Witch Project


I just watched that movie for the first time recently and I really liked it. It was shortly after watching Paranormal Activity of which I liked and disliked at the same time, but Blair Witch Project captured everything I liked about Paranormal Activity perfectly. I like that kinda 'home video' style because the characters in horror movies always tend to behave unrealistically. The behavior that the characters had in Blair Witch Project were very similar to the actions I'm sure I would take on my own if the same scenarios were happening.

Thirteen great movies I would recommend and wouldn't mind watching again:
Alice in den Städten
Dare mo shiranai
Det sjunde inseglet
District 9
El laberinto del fauno
El violín
Inland Empire
Ju-on
Mamma Roma
Rashômon
Sanxia haoren
The Dark Crystal
Un oso rojo

Thirteen wastes of time that at least (or unfortunately) I happen to remember:
A Walk in the Clouds
Alexander
Black Hawk Down
Final Fantasy: The Spirits Within
Juno
Nuovo Cinema Paradiso
Pantaleón y las visitadoras
Pathfinder
Rocky Balboa
The Dark Knight
The Phantom of the Opera
The Reader
XXY

Note: To me, listing the movies in a definite ranking is pretty much impossible. The lists are in alphabetical order and they'd probably change, especially because there are many other good movies that would also apply. I must admit that while various other movies flooded my mind while choosing for the best list, the worst had me making an effort to decide what to keep. You might also note that the list of bad movies does not go so far back in time. We try to avoid and tend to forget what we don't appreciate.

Threads of lists are boring so I'm going to reply to what people say.

BEST:
3. V For Vendetta

I thought this was a very overrated cash-in on Fight Club with a British spin. However I do have a friend who it touched in some profound way, she watched it weekely for the first 6 months after its' release, and I'm pretty sure still watches it at least monthly now.

Nomad said:

WORST FILMS EVAR:
5. Resident Evil

You (and the other ~80% of people on Rotten Tomatoes and Metacritic who give this series poor reviews) are insane! I don't understand what was so bad about these films, I love them all so much. The music, the story, the scenery, the actors, the effects, the action, the subject - it's just win after win after win. I love Resident Evil.

Bucket said:

BEST
2. Rambo

I agree. I recently sat down and watched all the Rambos in a row. What a fantastic series that not only kicks ass in an action-hero sort of way, makes you hate the government in a very cold-war-era-anti-patriotism sort of way, but also handles the issue of Vietnam veterans in a very public forum. The last one was brilliant, Stallone finally putting his best character to rest in a film he directed himself, and holy fuck some of those gory shots with that massive cannon at the end were hilarious!

Danarchy said:

Worst:
Star Trek V (never let Shatner direct again)

And have you heard his "singing"? I am pretty certain William Shatner should be in an old persons' home.

Snakes said:

Worst:
Pearl Harbor

This got alot of shit reviews when it came out, people said it was too long and the love story was too soppy. Another case where I don't agree with the world. Even though it was inordinarily long I was captivated the whole time, I didn't even realise it went for almost 3 hours or whatever. And maybe I'm a sap, I love a good romance :P

Mr. Freeze said:

Best:
-Red Dawn

Are you sure? I watched this again a month or two ago and it seemed to be one of those 80s kids stories like The Goonies, told from an adult wartime perspective, with absolutely terrible acting. The only half-believable performance was from the pilot whose plane was shot down, and he snuffs it pretty quickly anyway.

Mr. Freeze said:

Worst:
-Terminator 3

Agreed. Many Terminator fans (myself included) don't even consider T3 worthy of being canonical. It's like a really shitty Terminator fanflick.

dutch devil said:

Best:
10.Resident Evil (1 and 2)

I love you.

dutch devil said:

Worst:
7.Rambo 4
8.Last Action Hero

I hate you. Any Arnie movie is instawin, this one even moreso because it's such a pisstake on typical ludicrous hollywood action films. Like where he falls in the LA BREA TAR PITS, towels himself off with a NAPKIN, then his daughter randomly turns up because she "just thought" he might need some new clothes. Classic.

myk said:

wastes of time
The Dark Knight

OMG agreed! This is probably one of the most overrated pieces of shit I've ever seen. People literally raved about this movie like it was something completely life-changing and genre-changing like Star Wars or Fight Club. Fuck that. Christian Bale (one of the worst actors ever) speaking in a gravely voice, and some Aussie moron in makeup who died during the filming. BIG DEAL. I never got the whole Batman thing to begin with, and the movies just keep getting worse as time goes on. Batman movies are so crap they even made Arnie look bad - NOT EVEN BEING PREGNANT WITH DANNY DEVITO COULD DO THAT!

BEST MOVIES
7.Total Recall

This is one of my favorites too. Did you know someone made a short-lifed TV series called Total Recall 2070 which is also based off the Phillip K Dick novel the movie came from? I've downloaded it but haven't watched it yet.

Starship Troopers

4. Add some more here

For what it's worth, the Doom movie doesn't even come remotely close to top 10 worst movies. The Rock kept the movie from being as bad as it could have been. Also the huge dude in the pit swinging a computer at the Hell Knight was pretty awesome, so you guys are on crack.
