7 Worst Movies of All Time
What makes a movie bad? Generally, it isn’t any one single thing, but instead a series of unfortunate events. Truly bad movies tend to have a lot wrong with them. They have terrible direction, poor writing, and even worse acting. Oftentimes the photography is amateurish and the set and costume designs are vastly inferior, not always in terms of construction, but oftentimes in terms of how they are used. This is a list of movies that have gone above and beyond what it would normally take to be classified as awful.
7 | Gigli - Comedy (2003)
Gigli, starring Jennifer Lopez, Ben Affleck, Christopher Walken, and Justin Bartha, is a not so talented hitman. He is contracted by the mob to kidnap a mentally retarded young man, which he does; holding him hostage in his apartment. But his job is threatened by Ricki, a lesbian assassin sent to oversee him and make certain he doesn’t screw up. The best thing about this movie was the obviously lack of chemistry between Lopez and Affleck, which could be why they broke up not long after the movie came out.
6 | Captain America - Fantasy (1990)
Directed by Albert Pyun. Starring Matt Salinger, Ronny Cox, Ned Beatty, Darren McGavin, and Michael Nouri. During World War II, a brave American Soldier undergoes experiments to become a super soldier named Captain America. In Germany, he attempts to sabotage the rockets of a Nazi criminal called the Red Skull and ends up frozen in time until the 1990′s. Once he is revived, he finds that the Red Skull, who 0 has now changed identities, is planning to kidnap the President. Let’s just say this movie stinks and be done with it.
5 | I’ll Always Know What You Did Last Summer - Horror (2006)
A group of teens accidentally kill one of their friends during a 4th of July prank. They then vow to take the secret to the grave. However, one year later the secret comes back for revenge as the teens are picked off one by one. The first one was unique. The second one was predictable. This one is just plain awful. I implore the powers that be to stop making sequels.
4 | Laserblast- Sci-Fi (1978)
Directed by Michael Ray. Starring Kim Milford, Roddy McDowell, and Kennan Wynn. The story centers on alien creatures that kill a mutated creature. However, they leave behind the alien’s remains as well as the high-tech laser gun he was using. An ostracized teenager who uses it and then begins to mutate as well subsequently finds the gun. This film is so hokey that it leaves the audience speechless, and not in a good way.
3 | Superman IV: The Quest for Peace - Fantasy (1987)
Directed by Sidney Furie. Starring Christopher Reeve, Gene Hackman, Jon Cryer, Margot Kidder, and Mariel Hemingway. In this version, the Man of Steel goes up against new adversaries that he can’t possibly beat – - legendary bad filmmakers Menahem Golan and Yoram Globus. No fair stacking the deck against the big guy!
2 | Waterworld - Fantasy (1995)
Directed by Kevin Reynolds. Starring Kevin Costner, Dennis Hopper, and Jeanne Tripplehorn. The film really isn’t quite as bad as everyone made it out to be but it isn’t very good either. Costner as a man with gills and webbed feet who navigates the seas of the Earth in search of land just isn’t very good entertainment.
1 | Ishtar - Comedy (1987)
Directed by Elaine May. Starring Dustin Hoffman and Warren Beatty. The movie focuses on two untalented singer-songwriters who accept a gig in Morocco where they somehow manage to get caught up in an international intrigue. The problem with this comedy is there was no comedy. If Hoffman and Beatty actually played it for laughs, then neither actor deserves to be recognized for their supposed “brilliance.”
