What's the crappiest show or movie that you've ever watched. Shows or movies that are so crappy that the moment you watch it, you feel like you want to dig your eyes out. This one definitely ranks No. 1:

Apparently, someone in Bollywood hasn't heard of green screen.

I'm sorry. I've seen some crappy shows in my time, but I can't compare them to that….

Yeah… some of those shots blended the blue outfits with the backrgound a bit… Old Chromakey effects using a blue screen? But most of the initial scenes had a decent separation, just a rally silly side by side standing pose :)

Yeah and they seem to have the weird habit to talk with each other and make phonecalls in cinema during the film. I can't put myself to watch Bollywood movies because they are too friggin' long. It's a real real real weird industry.

…back in the 70's everybody was so tall and skinny…

It's nice to see Mr Freeman playing a happy guy for once instead of some grumpy old FBI agent/civil servant/politician/Generic elder statesman. He's so solidly typecast these days, maybe people think he's being a positive role model, but he's just become his very own cliche (much like the character he was playing in that clip lol!).

Morgan Freeman seems pretty all over the place to me. He's also played an ex-slave, a prison inmate, military officers, God, scientists, doctors, businessmen, the president, as well as more urban roles. I also see him doing a lot of narration these days. Sure, they put him in a lot of roles for older people, but he didn't exactly age well enough to keep taking young or middle-aged man roles.

Yeah, those are his roles. But they're all the same to me: Experienced elder male who deserves respect, pick the role. It's all pretty much exactly the same character. He doesn't do anything else that I can recall now.

It'd be nice to see him put in other role that demanded something different… A crazy guy? Villain? Lover?

One movie that was overrated crap was “A History Of Violence”, starring Viggo Mortensen.

Here's the scenario:I see the movie for rental at Roger's Video. I think to myself “Hmm, a movie about a guy who can't remember his history will the mob. Interesting. Oh, look! Aragorn's the star! Alright!”

So, like a LOTR fanboy, I rent it.

It. Was. Absolutely. Dreadful.

Guy has normal life, mob shows up, threatens his family, he kills them, arguments with wife and kids, he leaves, finds leader, turns out to be his brother, kills him, goes back home, then, and I have to drag this out so you may realize how horrible the ending is:

He walks into the dining room, and sits at the table. He looks at his daughter, then his son, then, finally his wife, who was crying. They stare for about five minutes….

…and that's it. Over. Done. Roll credits.

Again: overrated crap.

Believe it or not, my parents actually rented a movie from Netflix a while back called Nurse Betty that had Morgan Freeman playing a hitman. He and his son (played by Chris Rock) drive all over the country looking for this one woman Betty (played by Renee Zellweger). Betty saw the two hitmen brutally slay her (admittedly kind of douche-y) husband. Something snapped in her brain, she began confusing this one General Hospital-type soap opera with real life, and she drove off to Hollywood to meet up with her “doctor fiancee” in a car with an enormous quantity of high-quality cocaine in the trunk. Freeman and Rock have to chase her down, but eventually Freeman goes kind of crazy in the process and falls in love with Betty, so he doesn't kill her at the end, just asks her for a kiss or something, after which he gets shot by the police and dies– along with Rock, who I think is shot by Crispin Glover for some reason.

The movie was actually kind of odd in that respect in that some parts were very much like a namby-pamby Nora Ephron-style romantic comedy, and other parts were really intense– the gunfights, the drug trafficking, etc. For a romantic comedy, anyways. It felt like two weak screenplays mashed together into an even weaker movie. And then some parts were just bizarre, like the part where Betty poses as a nurse to sneak into the hospital used for the exterior opening shot of the soap opera (hence the name of the movie). She gets pulled by frantic EMTs into an ambulance where a man is suffering from, if I recall correctly, some sort of internal bleeding. Betty tells the EMTs that too much blood has built up somewhere, and that she needs to drain it; she does this by inserting a hose into a hole in the man's side, at which point the blood shoots out in one gigantic spurt, just covering Betty's stark white nurse uniform with the still-warm blood of a dying man. The guy lives, of course, but Betty walks around for the next couple of scenes wearing the bloody uniform and looking like something out of a slasher flick.

My point being: Nurse Betty. It was a very weird movie, and it was a very unpleasant movie (and not even in the good way, either), but, most relevant to you, Oz, it was a movie where Morgan Freeman does not play an elderly mentor-type character. Sure, he tries to be a mentor to Rock throughout the movie, but there's a lot of friction between the two, and often Rock argues with or ignores Freeman entirely; because of this, the two villains were actually the most interesting and enjoyable characters in the entire movie. …Don't take this as a recommendation, though. There's a reason why Nurse Betty, a fairly recent film with numerous stars, has been forgotten so quickly: it is really quite painful to watch.

This is poetry compared to Turkish Star Wars.

In class, I had to watch a movie adaptation of The Martian Chronicles. It was hilariously cheesy, and random. At the end of class, I blurted “Best Movie EVER!”, and everyone stared, since it wasn't really good.

Hollyhood starring 3 6 Mafia. The unintentional comedy of it is supreme.

That's why I watched it – because I kept hearing it was so bad it was good. But to me, it was so bad it was just boring.

I'm not exactly a movie buff but I saw my first Uwe Boll film recently, Blood Rayne.



How does he keep getting the money to make films?!

What makes that even worse is that Blood Rayne is probably one of his better attempts. At least it's the only movie of his I've seen which wasn't just completely destroyed by the critics.
