"But I was going into Toshi Station to pick up some power converters!"
Not because of what he said, but because of HOW he said it.

"You're some sort of big, fat, smart-bug, aren't you?"

My humble suggestions:

Hit Girl: Mhmm... but getting shot, Daddy... it hurt a lot more than when you did it.
Big Daddy: That's because I used low velocity rounds, child... he... he...

Nah, he said it like any petulant teenager, and that's fine.  The problem was that the delivery hit so close to home that it emphasized how strained the concept of sci-fi pop culture is.  Teenagers do not give a shiat about power converters.  It would take something very embarrassing, like a power outage during the Super Bowl, to get them to realize they even exist.

I've never seen any invented pop culture work well.  Just write it straight.  If the dialogue doesn't age well, so be it.  If you try to make shiat up there'll be nothing to age.

"Lock on, Tsiolkovsky"

I don't think it was an imperative to be spoken to the ship. It was a drunken utterance of the task he was to complete.

(must) lock ... on (to) ... Tsiolkovsky

Sybarite: She's All That (1999) "I feel just like Julia Roberts in Pretty Woman. You know, except for the whole hooker thing."

I've never seen that movie, but that's actually kind of funny.


Agreed, also though the movie was bad I thought  "I hoped I'd get to nail you one more time. Didn't think it'd be literally."  was pretty funny.

but "Noooooooo" and  "You know what happens when a toad gets struck by lightning? The same thing that happens to everything else."  were the 2 lines I thought of when I read the headline. Bad in every way.

I don't think it should count if the character recognizes is was a stupid thing to say.

AdolfOliverPanties: They should have limited that list to movies that people actually saw.  There are thousands of B movies that are absolute shiat.  They shouldn't count.  Only the well known, popular or money making movies should be on there.

And fark the author for saying Serenity sucked.


It kinda did, it lacked the spirit that made Firefly so awesome. It was too dark and depressing. and killing Wash and Book sucked. I know making a film from a TV show kinda requires something big and dramatic but the show might could've been revived if they hadn't done something so final.

I wouldn't have said it sucked but it was not a good ending for the series, especially since it didn't fully answer some of the best questions from the show.

I don't know.  Maybe those particular power converters would make his T-16 go "Wooo Wooo" when he flew through Begger's Canyon.  A space-teenager might give a shiat about that.

Nothing wrong with "I aim to misbehave", but since the author of TFA loves Firefly but thinks Serenity sucked, we already know they have some brain damage.

My contribution to the list of terrible movie lines:

"I had orgasms, he had wargasms." ~ Savages.

"You see that flash of light in the corner of your eye? That's your career dissipation light. It just went into high gear. " ~ Backdraft

Shostie: If these are the worst lines they can find, they're not watching enough movies.


To be fair, it IS a Den of Geek article, so expectations should be lowered accordingly.

Batman: Eat floor!
*Batman throws Catwoman down.*
Batman: High fiber.

Exactly, I always assumed it would be the modern equivalent of a farmboy who spent his spare time building Japanese tuner cars saying. "But I was going into town to pick up my new carburetor."

I'm not sure I agree with the E list including the line from Sin City. It's a bit cheesy, but it's also taken from the graphic novel.
 
2013-02-04 01:47:05 PM  
You crossed the line. People trusted you and they died. You gotta' go down.

It's not so much the line as much as it is the terrible delivery of it.

The problem is that they cut the scene with the hottie who was the REAL reason he wanted to go and pick up those power convertors so badly.

None of those qualify for being the worst line in their respective movies, much less worst line  ever.

GeeksAreMyPeeps: Dirty Dancing (1986) "I carried a watermelon."

I don't think it should count if the character recognizes is was a stupid thing to say.


Plus "Nobody puts Baby in the corner" was way worse.

1. Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith (2005)

That isn't even a real movie, they use movies that don't exist in their list?

Mugato: Jaws is one of my favorite movies of all time but it has some strange dialog instances. When Hooper is looking at the dead girl's arm and says, "This is what happens...." and that's it. That was probably just bad ADR. Quint's famous Indianapolis monolog had a lot of nonsensical lines in it but that could have been because either Robert Shaw or his character or both were shiatfaced so that might actually have worked out.


You are correct, sir

CPennypacker: Also, the worst line ever is in The Matrix:

"The image translators work for the construct program"


I noticed that one too. Morpheus' explanation of "residual self-image" also bothered me:

"It's the mental projection of your digital self."

He got it ass-backwards IMHO. It's the digital projection of his mental self.

Keep an eye on Martin Brody's cigarette. He puts it in his mouth. Hooper saps, "do NOT smoke in here!" then Brody takes the cigarette out. Then the close-up to the severed arm where Hooper says "this is what happens", the cigarette is back in Brody's mouth. Then the cut back to the earlier shot where Brody had the cigarette in hand.

So.....anti-smoking PSA from the cast and crew of Jaws?

Everything about that line from its delivery to its context is horrible.

SnarfVader: A Cry in the Dark (1988) "A dingo ate my baby!"

Oh, come on. That's the best line in a movie ever.



Came to say exactly this.
 
2013-02-04 02:16:07 PM  

scottydoesntknow: "Are you sure you saw what you think you thought you saw?"

Hehehe that reminds me of the Starship Troopers line (which has some of the cheesiest dialogue with the corniest acting).

Rico: "I don't know how I know, but I know."


Yeah, but that line sets us up for the "Oh, Neil Patrick Harris sent him that information using his awesome honed psychic powers!"

Mugato: What bad lines were in Die Hard? I suppose it was annoying that every cop besides McClane and Al were morons but I can't think of any specific bad dialog.


Not a line of dialog, but I always wince when Lt Dwayne Robinson is arguing with John McClane on the radio and he conveniently releases the button allowing himself to be interrupted.

I'd say every line Bane had in TDKR was laughable . . . but I couldn't understand half the stuff he said, and I don't want to waste three hours of my life watching that crapfest again.

Joey Pants had absolutely no idea what that line meant, and you can tell by what words he emphasized. I actually didn't understand what the line meant until like the third time I watched it and realized he was farking the line up.

WTF Wachowskis? You wrote the movie too, you understood the line. That was the best take you got?


That scene always bugged the mess out of me. Glad I'm not the only one.
