For a film with a resonable budget,cast and crew Carry on England takes some beating. For self indulgence Can Heironymus Merkin Ever Forget Mercy Humppe and Find True Happiness?, Skidoo,The Happening ( thinking about a good swathe 0f late 60 and early 70's "with it" films.
My nomination would be the dreadfully hopeless Pathfinders.The worst war film I've ever seen.It looks as though it's a film school piece,lousy acting and script and absolutely no energy to the action sequences.The only favourable aspect is that they managed to get the 82nd Airborne uniforms and equipment right for the D-Day setting.
I'm still undecided as to whether Carry on England is actually worse that Carry on Emmanuelle, but at least England had Judy Geeson to lessen the embarrassment slightly.
I know that I really should not pre-judge a film and I know that he has just won a Tony and is the "toast of Broadway".
However I spotted this announcement earlier today and have a feeling that this film may just be a candidate for the "Worst fim ever made" when it comes out.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz...=feeds-newsxml
Does a film that's deliberately bad count?
James Nguyen, the director of Birdemic: Shock and Terror, seems to keep a remarkably straight face in interviews but surely he's got to be taking the piss:
Trog has to be a strong contender, with poor Joan Crawford in her swan song acting her head off opposite a man in a monster suit.
Trog WAS awful....but in a good way!..
Off the top of my head I would choose Stakeout 1987.What a big fat bore of a film.
Also Subway, a French film from 1985 starring Christopher lambert.
The worst film I've seen recently is Wrecked 2010 starring Adrian Brody.A 91 minute yawnfest.
Batman and Robin or Transformers Revenger of the Fallen..........they don't even have the curtsy to be just an hour and a half film, instead they go on and on.
It makes my skin crawl that somebody who believed Batman could ever say something like that should actually have any creative input on a Batman film. I'm not a Batman fanatic, and I don't think the 'my' vision of Batman is the only vision, and must not be sullied ... It's just that Batman would never say that, and anyone who would say that is not Batman.
Luckily he posts on these boards, so he can back me up.
"The Gamma People" sticks in my mind as after what I thought was a good trailer was a huge disappointment.
