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.
Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen: This movie blows, plain and simple. But, it mainly blows because of Michael Bay’s mechanical and emotionless direction. The technical elements are quite good and the sound engineers were terrfic. I know these are lame reasons but have you seen the other films left on the list?
Dreamcatcher: One of the worst Stephen King adaptations ever but not the absolute worst. That prestigious dishonor goes to Maximum Overdrive. So, since that movie isn’t here, I’m removing Dreamcatcher.
The A-Team: This movie is god damn stupid. It reminded me of those horrible Charlie’s Angels movies. This was a simple process of elimination vote but I’m thrilled it made it this far.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II:The Secret of the Ooze: I almost eliminated this last round except I remembered that ninja rap song that Vanilla Ice performed near the end. That was, in my opinion, the worst movie musical moment that has ever been printed to filom and that includes From justin to Kelly. However, the movie is fairly faithful to its source material.
Leprechaun 4: In Space: It’s so stupid that it’s actually semi-amusing. They didn’t take the material seriously and they got a shitty movie out of it. The rest of flicks are worse.
Leonard Part 6: Mind-numbingly bad. Bill Cosby is a talent, but he never made a good movie, and this is an example why. A futuristic time cop called from retirement? Ugh… terrible production. In TV land, he’s amazing and among the best, but here in Movie World, he’s the pits. Pudding pop, anyone?
Catwoman: There have been some bad comic book movies I think are worse, like “The Punisher” with Dolf Lundgren or “Daredevil” with Ben Affleck. This one is bad, but it slips by.
Cool As Ice: This movie was an insult to “Rebel Without a Cause.” I mean, a hip-hop version of the classic movie starring Vanilla Ice? I couldn’t have come up with that if I tried. But alas, there are worse movies on the list.
Weekend at Bernie’s II: The original was actually kind of funny, if you could separate yourself from the idea that two bumbling guys need to pretend their evil boss isn’t dead and use him in all kinds of goofy ways so they don’t get blamed for his death. But by the sequel, after the body has been through the ocean, dropped and stuffed in luggage, wouldn’t the corpse start to smell? Plus, the story just sucked this time around.
The Day After Tomorrow: Ugh, what a turd. But there are other epic disaster movies that are worse, including one left on this list.
