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

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.

+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.

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).

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! :p

My wife and I were recently wondering the very same thing about The Human Centipede.

(Clarification: We haven't seen it and we don't intend to see it. The trailer was more than enough. The only thing more disturbing than the fact that this movie even exists is that, apparently, a sequel is already in the works.)
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!
