    It's sheer disappointment factor carried over to the next year [​IMG]

    Open Water and Oceans 12 must surely rank near the top of any list.

    Both from LAST year.

    For me. Fantastic Four occupies ALL TEN positions of the 10 worst of 2005!

    For me, Bewitched. Hands down the worst film I saw this year.

    I'll be the only one to say it but KING KONG gets my vote for the worst. But to be fair to the giant ape I haven't seen too many films from this year. ELIZABETHTOWN, my hometown, gets the second worst.

    Thankfully, or so it seems from the lists, I haven't seen many films from 2005.

    The only real stinker (and it was more disappointing than bad) was Elektra. Fortunately, Rob Bowman's Directors cut of the film made up for the lackluster film in a very good way. I really enjoyed the Directors cut and have just forgotten about the theaterical release.

    Oh and Crash, which I saw on an airplane was a manipulative piece of garbage too! But I only saw it on an airplane so not sure if that actually counts!~

    Bewitched not only tops my list for this year, it tops my list of most hated movies ever!

    Strangely enough, Crash is my BEST film of 2005 so far.

    Go figure. [​IMG]

    And I didn't think I was going to get to participate in this thread. [​IMG]

    Then I watched The Exorcism of Emily Rose. Holy shit. This movie is piss-you-off-Armageddon kind of bad. Oh, for the most part it's technically competent, but it's one of the most ridiculous and insulting films I've seen in years. Before I go on, I should say that I believe in the value of skeptical inquiry and of the scientific endeavor to explain the natural world. TEOER tramples on those values, preferring instead to posit that supernatural beliefs are something to be taken seriously, science and rationality be damned. I call bullshit. Attitudes like that are the last thing the world needs. (If the film had skipped the science-bashing and stuck solely to telling a supernatural story, I'd have been much more lenient on it.) But the film's troubles don't end there:

    The priest is found guilty of negligent homicide (is this a bright spot I thought?) but the judge and jury agree to reduce his sentence to time served. This leads to the immortal line: "You're guilty but you're free to go." [​IMG]

    The defense attorney takes on the priest's case after being promised a partnership in the law firm she works for. And then she turns it down at the end! Yeah, right.

    The defense attorney on a promising witness (an anthropologist): "She looks at possession from a scientific perspective and doesn't try to debunk it." WTF?

    I could go on, but I'll stop before I blow a gasket.

    Rating: Bomb

    I'm gonna go with

    1. The Fog
    2. The Brothers Grimm


    And since being a new member here, I feel compelled to vent on probably the worst movie I have ever seen (given the scope of the production and the fact that I thought it could have been a very good movie). This one's 2004, but ALEXANDER was HORRIBLE!!! Pretty bad when the only good thing I can remember from the movie was Rosario Dawson getting naked.

    Seriously, one of the worst movie's I've ever seen. Sorry, back to 2005!

    I try not to see too many bad films (generally you can tell by the trailer, backed up by a couple reviews), but there were a couple that slipped through my screening process and sucked $10 out of my pocket that I'd like to have back:

    Sin City
    Dark Water

    SteveGon: I thought 'Emily Rose' was well done - except for the silly "supernatural" element with the dark figures lurking in the shadows. I was glad to see a film with enough balls to offer a scientific explanation of "demonic possession" rather than try to force-feed me a bunch of religious B.S.

    Much better than highly over-rated 'The Exorcist'.

    But that's exactly what they did.

    I go with Kyle and Dave. Crash is easily the worst I've seen so far. So transfixed by it's own self-importance it doesn't make a single attempt at portraying reality; it railroads any sort of truthfulness in order to get its "message" across.
