Oh, the hubris! When will we learn?

Damn, this is mean. I like it.
Oh, the pain.
Recently, at an Asian fusion restaurant, I was offered a thing called an Asiadilla. This was a quesadilla with roast duck and hoisin sauce inside it. Just let that idea sink into your mind and permeate your tastebuds -- in essence, it's Beijing Duck crossed with Tex-Mex. With extra cheese. Watching The Last Airbender is like being force-fed a hundred Asiadillas, washed down with a pitcher of overly sweet Saketinis. The Asian kitsch flies at you, from the yin-yang fish to the army of Samurai who are all South Asian. You want a cheesy foreign backdrop for your fantasy epic? M. Night Shyamalan will smother you in cheese! Because the setting, in this movie, is just another trickster making fun of your desire to believe in it. Airbender's Asia is a giant pantomime, and you are Puss in Boots.
I think even "Signs" was overrated. And I was probably one of the not-so-few who saw the twist in "Sixth Sense" coming a mile away.
From MST3KInfo: Some guy named Rupert Munch Jr. wants to commit a crime against humanity and make a sequel to "Manos: The Hands of Fate", possibly the worst movie ever made.
To add insult to injury, he wants it to star Jackey Raye Neyman Jones, who played the daughter-cum-wife in the original film. Or rather, "film".
Jackey saw our productions. She told us that through the years, she has seen every ToRgO and Master, shtick, bit, film, play, comic, etc. come down the chute, but she thought they were all...(sorry to anyone out there)...unworthy. But she felt our "style, humor, intelligence, and love/respect for the characters" resonated with her, and she wanted to participate in some way! We told her we would like to do a feature length sequel to "Manos" with as many of the original cast and their families as possible. ... We want to do it in a contemporary style (40+ years later), that still captures the spirit, awkwardness and magic of Manos."
Look at the actual numbers, and you will see two main discrepancies:
[Liberals made up only 14% of the poll.]
[Liberals and moderates voted overwhelmingly against FOX]
Let's be clear: with 61% of Americans (liberals made up 14% of the poll, and moderates made up 47%), Fox News is the least trusted name in news. And they are the least trusted outlet by a decisive margin.
The man's a tiny little firestorm.
Looks like he's going to do all three films! Awesome!
Awesome and surprisingly detailed 70 minute review of Phantom Menace. Also, killing hookers.
A little late in posting, but wait till you see what's coming next...
Not having seen the films or read the books, I have no opinion on the matter.
But seriously, sparkling pedophile vampires?
First off, the author creates a main character which is an empty shell. Her appearance isn't described in detail; that way, any female can slip into it and easily fantasize about being this person. I read 400 pages of that book and barely had any idea of what the main character looked like; as far as I was concerned she was a giant Lego brick. Appearance aside, her personality is portrayed as insecure, fumbling, and awkward - a combination anyone who ever went through puberty can relate to. By creating this "empty shell," the character becomes less of a person and more of something a female reader can put on and wear. Because I forgot her name (I think it was Barbara or Brando or something like that), I'm going to refer to her as "Pants" from here on out.
Watch out, or he'll put an indestructible bullet through your indestructible skull.
Man was this film crappy.
Oooh, too soon? Not soon enough?
What makes a good Halloween costume? What makes a good costume idea go bad?
Here's a great list of TV characters done up in costumes, some of which succeed, and some which fail.
Because not enough has been done to humiliate pets.
Ok, I was feeling pretty good about myself, having only seen one of these films (Kaena: The Prophecy ), and even then only picking it out of a foreign language section at the local quirky video store.
But then, at #1, was the film I dreaded. I did see this, on a whim, without any knowledge of the film, seeing no advertising, and just going with it, based on the actors in the poster. I still cry at night when I think about that film.
Over the last decade, we've collected reviews for thousands of movies. Most films, even profoundly mediocre ones, can expect to receive at least cursory support from the pundits. However, once in a while, a film will take such a critical drubbing that further attention is warranted. That's where our Worst of the Worst list comes in. We've compiled a veritable cornucopia of dull, foolhardy, and outright terrible films, from legendary duds (Battlefield Earth) to chuckle-deficient comedies (Epic Movie), from hapless sequels (Basic Instinct 2) to scare-free would-be fright fests (Alone in the Dark). We've pored over the reviews to bring you the lowest Tomatometers of the decade -- including several (All About Steve, Whiteout) that were released within the last several weeks. In other words, we suffered for our work -- now it's your turn.
