While it is true that personal taste is not the only way to judge a piece of media it can be a helpful tool. Particularly if it is an opinion from a very good friend. Now we, your very good friends, here on staff at Real Women of Gaming do have some strong opinions on movies. We watch a lot of them. We love to discuss them. So here are some movies that we have deemed so terrible that we watched so that you don’t have to. You are welcome. Also, if one of our picks is a movie you actually enjoy please remember this is all in good fun and we still love you.
Crymson Pleasure had this to say about her pick. “Girl on the Third Floor. I didn’t like a single thing about this horrible movie. I love my horror but damn this was terrible. I wanted to stop watching it so many times and it was an hour longer than it needed to be. The acting is terrible, the plot could have been interesting but was not, and CM Punk being the lead made it worse, not better. It’s sexist, misogynistic, and poorly written. I can’t even give it a one star. It’s terrible. Avoid at all costs.”
KinkedNitemare had a pick that many reviews agree with. “I Know Who Killed Me – A movie to make Lindsay Lohan a “serious” actress, but there was nothing good acting could do to save the script.”
Thia the Bard has some very strong feelings about their pick. “CATS. Now I want everyone to know that I went into the movie understanding the backstory. I know it is based on a book of wild poems about cats and I loved the musical. This movie though. From the first frame to the end is just awful. The technical snafus to the changes to the original musical material. It is honestly a bad, almost terrifying though it isn’t supposed to be and a numbing movie. I will never get that time back, but I am trauma bonded to the person I watched it with!”
Otter Limits had to choose something surprising for them. “Pushing Tin – I am a huge John Cusack fan so I purchased Pushing Tin without knowing anything about it. Other big names in the movie were Angelina Jolie and Billy Bob Thorton. The movie was dreadful. None of the characters were likeable, the story was boring and performances were lackluster. Only time I have ever just thrown a movie away.
My husband asked me why I bought it and I showed the blurb on the box to him. His response was, “why didn’t we watch that movie? That sounds great” Blurb was 200% better than the movie itself.”
Iris_thekeyblademaster had a few choices for us. “Oh boy, what do I pick? The Room? Birdemic? The animated Titanic musicals? The thing is, they’re all terrible, but I find them incredibly entertaining for that reason and love watching them. I honestly can’t remember the last movie I saw that was bad and I hated it.
I guess if I have to pick one, I’ll go with The Legend of Titanic. Because, among many other things, it’s an animated Disneyesque musical that changes the ending of the Titanic disaster. NOBODY DIED because a giant, talking octopus held the ship together with his tentacles long enough for the talking whales to arrive and get everyone to safety. So, yeah, way to honor the memories of actual victims, movie.”
There you have it. A nice list of some movies we have deemed “bad.” This prompt gave the staff a lot to talk about. Do you see your pick? Have one for us to look into? Let us know in the comments below.
