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!

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).|

+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.

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.|

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! )

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)
NATURAL BORN KILLERS!
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.

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