Screw you, that was a decent movie...when I was high and young...
2003-09-03 01:48:31 AM  
Should have made the list:
"To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything! Julie Newmar"
2003-09-03 01:52:34 AM  
"Who's Killing the Great Chefs of Europe?"
2003-09-03 01:52:57 AM  
This list is shiat. No Battlefield Earth?!
2003-09-03 01:59:38 AM  
And Waiting for Guffman... Jesus I hate that movie.
2003-09-03 02:09:37 AM  
More a euphemism for masturbation than a title for a film

Well, if anyone would know, it would the writer of this article...

"Snatch". Not that it's a bad title, just that I'm stilled pissed about sitting through it and not seeing any. Man was I duped.

The Wacky Adventures of Ronald McDonald: Scared Silly
2003-09-03 06:21:42 AM  
Didint mention "Sack Lunch"
2003-09-03 07:06:42 AM  
or "P'Tang Yang Kipperbang"

Aw Gus_283, don't be like that.
I think that RetroCrush comes up with some amazing content.
Way better than most.
Props to the site owner.

This list lost all credibility when it went after Electric Boogaloo.
2003-09-03 09:35:06 AM  
GOOD! Manos: The Hands of Fate was horrible, a lot worse than the title is. I suggest everyone see it, so you can enjoy just peace and quiet and staring at the ceiling, but please, the MST3K version, cause without the commentary, this movie is unwatchable

Now to get a picture of just how bad the movie itself is, 3 of the cast (including the main actor) committed suicide (Two of them the same year this movie was released.) Of the 17 actors, 2 went on to do other movies, one of the two only doing one other movie.

If not for new movies like Gigli, and From Justin to Kelly, this would be at the top of IMDB's Top 100 Worst Movies of All Time.

I'm a pathetic bastard with my own house. HA HAHHH!

Holy shiat I actually own this movie.
It's great.
2003-09-03 10:58:19 AM  
OK, K-Pax wasn't that terrible... and why choose Attack Of the Clones, when you could choose The Phantom Menace??
2003-09-03 11:30:38 AM  
"Amazon Women in the Avocado Jungle of Death"
2003-09-03 11:33:54 AM  
What, no "Mother May I Sleep With Danger" ? I guess TV movies don't count...
2003-09-03 12:01:15 PM  
What about SSSSSSS? I've always wondered what it would have been like getting in line to see that movie and then asking for a ticket?

"Yes, one for Ssssssss...."
"Excuse me?"
"I said, one for Sssss...."
"Are you passing gas?"

Terrance and Phillip: Not without my Anus
2003-09-03 12:01:39 PM  
How about a true classic: Jesus Christ: Vampire Hunter
2003-09-03 12:01:47 PM  
At least they were dead on with Manos.

I disagree with Attack of the Clones though. Battlefield Earth should be in that list, but a lot of people tend to block it completely out of memory.
2003-09-03 12:02:29 PM  
20 worst films of all time or the 20 worst movie titles of all time?
2003-09-03 12:02:47 PM  
SVT...per the beginning of my article, I disallowed movie titles that were taken from the books they were based on. That's a whole new list.
2003-09-03 12:03:09 PM  
SVTCobra & puffy999:- Why is "Battlefield Earth" a bad title? It's a bad movie, but that's irrelevant.
2003-09-03 12:04:41 PM  
Battlefield what?
2003-09-03 12:06:02 PM  
I think "Tomboy" would make the list for worst movie title and worst movie ever made.........well, there is, of course, Zolon, or Zocor, or Zorcon, or......damn...what was that movie that blew chunks with Sean Connery in it?
2003-09-03 12:06:32 PM  
Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter is the best garage movie evar.
2003-09-03 12:07:28 PM  
bucket_pup that would be Zardos, a craptacular film indeed.
2003-09-03 12:07:36 PM  
"Bend It Like Beckham" is so farking crazy a movie title! Who'd have thought of using a saying from the movie in a title! And so is naming a movie about the fictional planet K-Pax after the fictional planet K-Pax!!! What were they thinking.

This is just a list of mediocre recent movies with mediocre titles. And where the hell is "Little White Chicks and Big Black Monster Dicks."
2003-09-03 12:07:42 PM  
You just knew that people would fark this thread up by talking about bad movies. Pay attention people this is about BAD TITLES.
2003-09-03 12:09:23 PM  
I think they left off a whole genre of movies that deserve their own circle of hell: movies based on titles of old songs that they built a plot around. I'm looking at you, "Pretty Woman."
2003-09-03 12:09:47 PM  
What about
"I Dismember Mama"
2003-09-03 12:09:59 PM  
You dumb, dumb, sons-of-biatches.

The site is talking about the worst movie titles. Titles, like the names of movies.

Jesus Christ, how the fark can this many people be this stupid?

Read, for fark's sake.
2003-09-03 12:10:23 PM  
"Hell Comes to Frogtown" starring Roddy Piper

Yes, it's true.
2003-09-03 12:10:32 PM  
WHAT THE shiat?

NO "Beethoven's 2nd !??"

Yeah. ok.
2003-09-03 12:11:40 PM  
The worst film ever and the only one that I have ever walked out on because it was soooo bad...........

The Demon is Loose

A truly bad movie.
2003-09-03 12:11:41 PM  
Sequals titles always suck...they're long and no one wants to pronounce the entire thing...unless it's like Jaws II...

Pirates of the Caribbean: THe Curse of the Black Pearl?
2003-09-03 12:11:57 PM  
2003-09-03 12:12:12 PM  
I vote for "Pootie Tang" as the worst title ever.

Pootie Tang? WTF is that? It sounds like a vinegar fart.
2003-09-03 12:12:48 PM  

The list is not for BAD MOVIES. It's for movies with BAD NAMES. Stop saying the list sucks because they didn't put a crappy movie there. It's a list of movies with bad names, not bad content. Jesus.
2003-09-03 12:12:52 PM  
I've never been certain whether "Stuff Stephanie in the Incinerator" is a really cool title or a bloody awful one.
2003-09-03 12:12:55 PM  
The Year of the Comet
2003-09-03 12:13:03 PM  
But seriously, even in the face of this stiff competition, I can't understand why "Gigli" isn't #1

You can't even pronounce it, for crying out loud.
2003-09-03 12:13:04 PM  
What no "Hell Comes to Frogtown"?
2003-09-03 12:14:07 PM  
Attack of the Clones is 2nd? Good Lord . . .

The Empire Strikes Back may be my favorite movie of all time, but the title sucks!

The EMPIRE STRIKES BACK . . . way lamer than Attack of the Clones.

2003-09-03 12:15:15 PM  
Woody Allen has to be the all-time winner in this category. He had to be talked out of calling "Annie Hall" after the inability to feel pleasure - "Anhedonia."

Other silly titles from Woody:

"Love and Death"

"The Purple Rose of Cairo"

"Hannah and Her Sisters"

"Everyone Says I Love You"

"Deconstrucing Harry"

"The Curse of the Jade Scorpion"
2003-09-03 12:15:23 PM  
My picks:
1)Adventures of Pluto Nash. Please Eddie, go back to being the smart-arse you used to be. All your current stuff sucks now.
2)The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension. Good film, but WTF ?

Y Tu Mama Tambien. Do you know how stupid you sound when you ask for a ticket to this movie, and you say it out loud ? "Yes, I'd like 2 ticket to, er, "And your Mama"." Bleh. I'm spanish, and felt silly saying this title.

2003-09-03 12:16:08 PM  
You can tell these guys are a bunch of ignorant dweebs by the way they labeled Bend It Like Beckham. First of all, the phrase "bend it" is understood in the UK...where the movie was filmed and why should they change the wording here? If you don't understand what it means - and you'd rather make fun of it than learn - you're better off not watching it and living in your isolated little hole.

A similar thing happened with the wording of Harry Potter when it was first released in the United States - changing "lorry" to "truck" and "crumpets" to "muffins" to offer a few examples. Some of this was necessary, as hardly anyone in America understands what a lorry is, but crumpets are not muffins.

Hey GrandmaGoth sign your ditty on the runnin' kin' Dont mess with Pootie Tang!
