Ok, I'm going to open up a bit of controversy and say, yes it was super disgusting and horrifically twisted and gross. **But** that essentially makes it good. I mean if a movie has you thinking about it afterwards, even if the reason you're thinking about it is because how horrific or disgusting it was then the movie has gotten a reaction from you and that's the point.

So I wouldn't put "the human centipede" on this list and instead would put on many of the mindless boring movies I watch where the only thing I can give them credit for is being in colour and in focus at least 80% of the time. The irony is that those movies are bad and hence I immediately forget about them and that's why I can't list any off the top of my head!

Francois Caron I have to agree that Satirycon was very confusing and not all that good. But Fellini did a much better job with "City of Women."

I much prefer the Fellini-esque style found in the movie "Caligula". However, that movie was from Penthouse Magazine!

David Susilo Hmmm, I actually like Batman and Robin (RT 11%) because of the level of suckiness. It's always become a MST3K session everytime my brother and I watch the movie (it's a nostalgia thing as well. We grew up in different countries and one of the very few movies we watched together was Batman & Robin when he visited me in Australia. We were the only TWO VIEWERS in the entire theatre and that was only the 2nd weekend the movie played in Perth, WA).

PG44 +1 to Liquid Sky (total waste of time and money, even as a young student trying hard to see the artistic merit); and The English Patient - thank God I am not the only one who thought this was overhyped rubbish. There were too many chronologic inconsistencies that just got my blood boiling.

Also, Satyricon. This was a Felini film so I thought it might be interesting. Boy, was I wrong. I never did get what was going on, and judging by the silent confusion of the other patrons upon leaving the theatre I was not alone.

Must disagree on Eraserhead though. This was IIRC David Lynch's first film (Blue Velvet, Dune, Twin Peaks). It was quirky and I found it strangely amusing. To each his own.

Francois Caron Not surprising since it's a remake. The original movie was a 1972 Soviet Union production directed by Andrei Tarkovsky. And at 165 minutes, it was a very, very long movie to endure.

Coasterdon Solaris (with George Clooney). I love space and sci-fi but this was the worst thing I have ever seen.

NATURAL BORN KILLERS!...It was completely mindless and totally void of any structure!
You mean, unlike the two main characters?
Could it possibly be the movie was filmed in such a style that mirrored the actions & personality of its protagonists?

(Sorry, I watched this in 1st year film class, I couldn't resist. I wasn't a big fan of the movie either! )

Consider yourself lucky!

I hardly watch any contemporary movies anymore, having been burnt way too many times by mindless storylines created for fourteen year old boys (the PG-13 rating ain't for nothing!). But if I go back far enough, two -- no three -- movies come to mind!

The least worst of them all was "Liquid Sky", a movie about aliens in tiny saucers who come looking for heroin, just to find out the hormones released during the human orgasm is a much better drug. In the end, one girl manages to kill a lot of people just by making them climax.

Second worst is Eraserhead, a horrible, grainy movie with an incredibly noisy soundtrack and the most butt-ugly baby you've ever seen in your entire life!

And the worst is: (drumroll please)


A movie so terrible that I could only watch the first side of the Laserdisc I had rented! It was completely mindless and totally void of any structure! Considering a single movie on Laserdisc cost about fifty bucks back then, I was really happy I hadn't paid for it.

MarcP Batman & Robin. Despite being a loud action movie and being in a theater with loud speakers, I fell asleep.

Oh, you mean the "Hurry up and die already" movie? I always wondered what the correct title was!

David Susilo Yup, I have no patience in watching The English Patient just like I fell asleep trying to watch Awake.
