Definitely one of the worst "blockbuster" films ever made. Would you believe 40 people have given it 5 stars on Amazon???? There should be a law against it.

In no particular order - Gangs of New York, The Village, The Happening, Van Helsing, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, Pearl Harbour, Battlefield Earth, Highlander 2 (or any of them), War of The Worlds (Tom Cruise version), Day The Earth Stood Still (Keanu Reeves version).

The difference between these films and lot of the others listed is the budget and cast/directors involved. These are all big budget hollywood "blockbusting" rip-offs designed to get you into the cinema and take you for every penny.

Scary movie 3, closely followed by Scary movie 2 and then Scary Movie....not sure how good four is, having finally learned my lesson, but I'm fairly sure it'll be less than good.

Agree on Gangs Of New York which I only saw quite recently. Basically Braveheart in New York, only this time with an American playing an unconvincing Irish immigrant instead of an Australian as an unconvincing Highlander.

Hugely pompous, overlong, dull, plodding, historically garbled and filled with no end of pointless violence, a dearth of any significant female characters (yes, only Cameron Diaz was important in the formation of New York!) and no end of patronising cod-Irish mysticism (witness the pseudo-traditional fiddle music that kicks up whenever it's time for another blooming fight).

And yes - a lot of fights. Who cares how spectacularly choregraphed and gorily violent they are if the plot is so interminable?

And a generally talented cast surely doing it because they heard the words 'Scorsese' and 'Quite a lot of money, probably.' And this lured Daniel Day Lewis away from making shoes? And despite his amazingly method methods, wasn't he just a LITTLE bit over the top?

The other film I saw recently which nearly convinced me into throwing a self-crafted piece of footwear at the screen was Cameron Crowe's Elizabethtown. As has been said elsewhere, basically Zach Braff's Garden State gone wrong, packed with zero plot and just a lot of meandering, unrealistic 'wacky / eccentric' dialogue and the most annoying end to a film ever where, despite having only met him a few days previously, Kirsten Dunst provides Orloondo Bland with an elaborately designed personal route planner filled with letters and selection of mix tapes. Filled with irritatingly American-centric indie playlist. No offence to Americans, I just find that constant overly romanticized, whimsical use of certain pop music in movies a lazy shortcut to supposed emotional depth. Also, like Gangs Of New York, I think it's over 2 and half hours long but feels more like four.

Finished being angry now! Off to throw darts at my portrait of Orloondo Bland.

De Palma could have a top ten of his own but I will settle For Taffin with Pierce Brosnan- the only film to have put me to sleep although it took an hour to do it.
Pitiful film.

Closer, Silent Hill & Mr Brooks only films I've actually regretted watching.
The first 2, I was actually annoyed that I paid to watch them at the cinema.

I'm sorry Marco S but Blair Witch was pants! The only thing scarey about it was the amount of snot coming out of that girl's nose. What a load of hyped up tut! If you want to watch a proper scarey film try some Japanese horror such as Tale of Two Sisters, you'll probably have to watch it twice to make sense of it but it'll scare the crap out of you.

Look, there are loads of crppy films out there. The bottom shelf of your local Blockbuster is full of DTV classics like Zombie Strippers, House of the Dead, Hollow Man 2 (or any other DTV sequel to a hit film). There's Superman IV, Batman and Robin, The Mummy 3 and all the sequels that didn't do the business. I walked out of Spawn! So really, perspective is necessary when choosing which films are really, really, crushingly terrible because movies like Titanic, Gangs of New York and War of the Worlds are not in the same league as the worst of the worst. Obviously opinion is involved here but in terms of undeniable quality, Dark City kicks Hannibal Rising's butt.

The Cook the Thief His Wife & Her Lover is one of my favourite films!
Terrible films I switched off after 15 minutes: Romeo + Juliet (DREADFUL acting); Phantasm (people endlessly wandering about in empty corridors);
Terrible films I wish I'd switched off after 15 minutes: Creep (made me angry it was so lame); Shakespeare in Love (I want that time back!!); Broadcast News (what's it supposed to be? A comedy? A drama? Who knows?); The Matrix (grrrrr - "there is no wall" so jump through it then! - aaarrghh!!!); Ladies in Lavander (pointless); The Hand that Rocks the Cradle (knew EXACTLY what was going to happen next); Snake Eyes (ditto); Transformers (made to watch by a friend - I should have known better. Her favourite film is Home Alone!!)

Its interesting how fans of Hulk, Bridget Jones, or, say, Scary Movie would list Koyaanisqatsi, Once and Baraka, and vice versa.

I only think it's fair to list films that fall in your normal genre. If you don't like superhero films, obviously your least favourite film will probably be a superhero film.

Movies I have switched off halfway through despite best efforts were City of God & Angel Heart. I also regretted buying Brick, as it all seemed a bit preposterous, but I'm going to rewatch it ats ome point in case I missed something artistic and subtle.

One Fine Day, with Michelle Phiefer and George Clooney. That was so boring!!!! In the middle of the film dragged on for ages!!! Nothing was happening. The only good thing about it was George Clooney!!!

Liar Liar with the smug Jim Carrey-the out takes at the end prove how desperately un-funny this gentleman is.

By a country mile, the worst film I have endured in recent memory was when I took my daughter to the cinema to see "Wild Child". Holy cow what a steaming pile of garbage. The plot is so transparent, sloppy, cliched and vomit-inducing and the lead male is an utter plank. I can't find the right vocabulary to expresss just how hideous this film is.
My daughter loved it of course... It was her "favourite-ever" film, (until I made her watch Ferris Beuller's Day Off), and she's pestering me to go and see Hannah Montana the Movie. Argh!
