I should have walked out of Soul Plane. Worse fucking "movie" I have ever seen, ever. I was dragged to see it swear! :frowning:.

I liked Soul Plane. :D

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. :D

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! :eek:

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.
