No Holds Barred was a fantastic movie.
 
2013-07-12 11:42:12 AM
Alicia Silverstone and Sigourney Weaver in "Vamps" (2012)

First, I don't think anyone has thought of Alicia Silverstone as a "huge celebrity" in well over a decade now. Second, I was wondering what ever happened to Amy Heckerling.

Travolta was a washed up has been until Tarrentino rescued him. He may be back on the B list again

Damn, list is blocked at work.

I'm guessing Ben Kingsley for the Love Guru

Michael Caine for Jaws: The Revenge

I continue not to hate Batman and Robin.

Well, it had at least 2 reasons to see it:

GIS for "Joan Severance" and you'll see them more clearly (NSFW of course).

I think Krysten Ritter has more celebrity cache than Silverstone these days.  In fact, I think I want to see that movie now just because she's in it.

This one is not on the list?

I don't think I've ever seen any of those.

I may have seen parts of B&R, but that's about it.

List fails without Denis Leary in "The Sandlot".

I liked Happy Gilmore and crazy-protractor-for-an-arm-man.  Other than that, Adam Sandler sucks.

That was my rant.  Thanks for reading!

Neither one is on the list.

I don't look at Hulk Hogan as someone I would be surprised is a cast member in a shiatty movie.

It is a very trolly list.  It lists Adam Sandler, but only listed one piece of shiat movie he has been in.  Outside of a few, all of his movies have been ass.

Hey, it's another internet list of stupid pop-culture crap that has already been listed as stupid pop-culture crap about a gazillion times before, great! This is how Nazi Germany got started. :(

Amy Heckerling AND Krysten Ritter? How did I not hear of this earlier?

I guess they have a separate list for Adam Sandler and Rob Schneider.

This. Plus I think James Earl Jones is a slightly bigger celebrity than Denis Leary...

that's a Farrelly brothers movie, it's pretty much bad on purpose. That's not the same as a big budget, earnest and sincere POS.

It's about "huge celebrities", without any mention of acting skills, and "The Sandlot" was almost as unfunny as "Schindler's List".

Unfortunately, there's a couple of Shreks in that list.

(but the other Shreks certainly quality)

Haven't seen The Sandlot, but wow, that's not funny at all, not even a little bit.  Was it meant to be a comedy?  Is it Problem Child-level painful?

Will have to avoid.

About the worst movie you'll ever watch starring Peter Sellers, Ringo Starr, Marlon Brando, Walter Mattheau,..ugh, the list is just too long.

I don't think it was intended to be a pure comedy.  There are funny moments, but it's more of a 'coming of age' movie.

Killing them softly. One of the few movies I couldn't finish.
 
2013-07-12 01:37:39 PM
It becomes more and more obvious that Scientology is messed up when you take what should be a ready made box office success formula. Aliens-taking-over-the-world-post-apocalyptic-nightmare shoot em up concept and screw it up as badly as they did with Battlefield Earth...

I own Battlefield Earth on DVD.  I classify it in the 'enjoyably bad' category rat-brain.

Holy Fark people, you want to know why movie 'A' or movie 'B' isn't on the list? Watch the footage from The Conqueror, it should take up all 7 positions itself. Seriously, John Wayne as Genghis Kahn, without bothering to lose the 'Aw, Shucks, ma'am' drawl? NO other movie with good actors can be this bad.

On a whole, Magic Christian was bad but had some brilliantly farked up moments.

Like this one (NSFW)

Terrible, pointless movie, hugely forgotten.  However, it had the sheer dumb luck of getting star-studded roster, before most of them became known (this was 1995):
-Ben Affleck
-Sam Rockwell
-Matt Damon
-Matthew McConaughy
-Brendan Fraser
-French Stewart
-Alyssa Milano
-John Rhys-Davies

Only watched this movie because it was filmed at my alma mater (UC Santa Cruz) and the surrounding city.

He himself once joked upon hosting SNL one time that (at the time) they'd had 400 shows and he'd had 5,000 comebacks.

/I will say I rather enjoyed Bolt

Flappyhead: Caligula.


After two attempts I've never finished that movie. I shall not try again, and this coming from someone who sat through Hansel & Gretel: Witch Hunters and Zardoz.
