Every day we’re cutting ten movies from our original list of 45 of the Worst Movies Ever Made until we’re down to ten. Brian and Matt will each chop five from the list.
Here are the movies that didn’t make the grade… or did? We’re not sure. They all suck, but they’re not going to make it to the ten worst ever.
The Devil’s Rejects: I’m not sure if Rob Zombie spit at my brother in a bar but he really hates this film and I don’t get it. It’s one of my favorite films in the horror genre and should never have been on this list.
Last House on the Left: I absolutely hate the way Wes Craven portrayed the goofy cops in this film but it has some genuinely frightening and disturbing moments.
Real Steel: Sly Stalone’s “Over the Top” with Rock ‘Em Sock ‘Em Robots. Embarrassingly dumb but not in the conversation of worst ever.
Teen Wolf: This movie completely sucks and deserves to be on this list. However, I’m willing to concede it’s a product of 1980’s teen culture and for that I’m letting it off the hook.
Nowhere to Run: Dumb with a capital D! But, couldn’t you use that to describe every single Van Damme film?
Moulin Rouge: Goofy as hell? Yes. But not worst ever. I mean, it won an Oscar for best picture and launched the career of Ewan McGregor.
Beloved: I think Brian was just blinded by his hatred of Oprah when he put this one on the list. Is it good? God no. This is an average flick that could have gone straight to basic cable.
Big Daddy: Yes, Adam Sandler has made some dog shit movies, and this is certainly one of them. To me, offensive movies like “Last House on the Left,” with its constant use of uneccessary and graphic rape scenes or horrible acting and attrocious violence in “The Devil’s Rejects” make those far worse. Bad, but not worst ever.
Wal-Mart: The High Cost of Low Prices: Poorly made documentary that stirred up a ton of press and got way more distribution and viewing than it deserved. Definitely in the conversation for worst documentaries, and worthy of this list, but not the top ten. P.S. I hate Wal-Mart.
Leprechaun in the Hood: A bong-smoking gangsta leprechaun? Now we’ve seen everything. One of the Leprechaun movies had to go from the list. Leprechaun in Space just seems worse… though not by much.
