    I liked Soul Plane. [​IMG]

    I never walk out on movies and didn't manage to see any out and out "F"/zero star stinkers. But the two worst movies of the year for me were:

    Love Me If You Dare & Shark Tale. If I had to choose between the two for worst it would be Shark Tale. Did Stuart Scott do an uncredited script polish? I still haven't recovered from hearing Martin Scorsese utter the phrase "Pound it dude!"

    I finish everything I start as well.

    By far the worst I’ve seen this year was Van Helsing. Watching Frankenstein’s monster swing like Tarzan was probably the farthest my eyes have ever rolled while watching a film. Lets hope that Sommers is stopped in the near future.

    I also do not often walk out of a movie. I sat through Van Helsing - groaning all the way.

    However, I did walk out of "Paparazzi" this year.

    And, if it counts, I was watching "Shark Tale" on a plane flight and took off the earphones and read. The plane noise was preferable.

    I've only walked out on 1 movie ever ("The Cook, The Thief, His Wife and Her Lover"). Worst film I've seen thus far this year was "Purple Butterfly".

    I walked out on WIRED (1989) - the John Belushi story.

    As a diehard fan of the old classic Universal monster films, I didn't even attempt VAN HELSING.

    Welp, every molecule in my body wanted to run, not walk, but RUN out of The Exorcist: The Beginning and for all the wrong reasons, but I was with a girl who was enjoying it, so I grinned and bore it. [​IMG]

    people ACTUALLY walked out during THE VILLIAGE. that movie was terrible. I have never heard so much un-intended laughter during any movie. if you'd walked in, and not known what was on the screen, you woulda thought you walked into the latest Ben Stiller comedy. case in point...someone's cell phone rang, and nobody cared. i almost walked, but i wanted to see the big "twist" which was dumb anyway.

    I sat through Howard The Duck, Battlefield Earth, etc. only film I ever walked out of was "Postcards from the Edge" so bad .. just, bad.

    Some of the worst I saw this year:

    You Got Served
    Soul Plane
    Catwoman
    Alexander (*)
    Stepford Wives
    The Whole Ten Yards
    Club Dread
    Home on the Range
    Teacher's Pet

    Would all qualify as some of the worst films I've seen this year. (now, I'm waiting for Ernest Rister to argue with me on the last two, but I'll stick by my guns.. terrible)

    Oh lord, Club Dread, I forgot that one, or should I say that I repressed that one! [​IMG]

    I rented that one, that's another great thing about dvd, you can "walk out" on a film without having to go anywhere, just press STOP. That's what I did with this.

    That's actually more phsychologically satisfying, because by stopping a film you think is terrible, it's like your saying to the film "Oh no, I'M not leaving, YOU are you piece of crap!!"

    There has been good responses on this thread. Thanks everyone so far. Well I have to add to another on my list which I watched last night. Envy, that was the most terrible Ben Stiller movie I have ever seen. What was Barry Livingston thinking of directing that mess, he is a academy award winning director for peep sake.

    Speaking of bad movies ...

    Does your theater refund your money if you leave early in the film? I would walk out of more movies if I know that I'll get a refund or exchange ticket for another show.

    A good chunk of the very few movies I've been to this year were revivals. Of those, I saw:

    This is Cinerama
    It's a Mad Mad Mad Mad World
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    Lawrence of Arabia
    Ghostbusters
    Oklahoma!
    The Muppets Take Manhattan (kid's show)
    Kangaroo Jack (kid's show, and only because it was free, and I still felt overcharged)

    The only new movies I have seen this year in a theatre are:
    Dodgeball
    The Incredibles
    Johnson Family Vacation
    Mean Girls
    Shark Tale
    The Spongebob Squarepants Movie

    If we had old movies in theatres on a regular basis where I live, I probably wouldn't go to new movies at all except in special cases (most of these I actively wanted to see).

    Ive never walked out and Ive seen some terrible films in the theater....

    Action Jackson
    Sleepaway Camp
    Signs
    Trick Or Treat
    How to Loose A Guy in 10 Days
    Batman & Robin
    The Mask
    True Lies
    Howard the Duck
    Iron Eagle

    Im usually very picky about what I go to the theater to see. Everything else can wait for cable or homevideo.
