I know Wolverine is a total bad-ass, and that he could just shrug off the concussion wave from that explosion, but I don't see how he gets his hair to do the same thing.

Due to his healing factor can wolverine effectively orgasm over and over again without any breals in between? Is this why he doesn't have long term girlfriends? Because he destroyed their cha-cha's?

I was going to link to some of the lame explosions in "The Specialist", but they don't seem to exist on Youtube.
 
2014-04-08 02:17:17 PM  
Yeah, most of those were "believable" in the fact that they looked like explosions, subby. They might have been silly, but I can bet that there are a ton out there that would match up to that crappy one from "Trolls 3". The rest were OK(As far as movie explosions go), but that one was horrible.

See, the deal is that USUALLY the explosions aren't believable, because nobody wants to relive Oklahoma City all that badly. That helicopter one would be insulting, even to the people who would watch Trolls 3(I didn't even know that Trolls I and II even existed.). God, that was bad. At least the car in Silent Night was an actual explosion inside the real car.

more like the first 6 examples the author decided to write about.  there are 1000s out there just as ridiculous.
 
2014-04-08 02:18:47 PM  
I would like to thank the subby for this.

After watching Toll3's awesome scene, there is a link to a 2013 Bollywood version of kama Sutra.

I fully expect this to be a new edition to my bunk playlist when I watch it later.

Not a movie, but the scene from Walking Dead season 1 where they blow up the CDC was terrible.

Really don't want to defend Van Helsing, but there's obviously something in the carriage that causes the explosion....
 
2014-04-08 02:27:17 PM  
I once saw a  Walker: Texas Ranger where a car drove off a overpass/bridge and exploded in mid air for no reason.
 
2014-04-08 02:27:22 PM  
I'm not getting what's unbelievable about the Casino Royale one.  Canisters of highly flammable gasses, connected to an open flame, fall and potentially burst?  What did the author of TFA think would happen in that situation?

If the list does not include the car explosion from each and every Troma film.... the list is incomplete.

The least believable movie explosions ever

You mean like the ones where a hand grenade or an explosive-tipped arrow blows up half a city block?
 
2014-04-08 02:33:30 PM  
Toy helicopter FTW.

And I will admit to liking Van Helsing, mostly because of how Kate Beckinsale looks in those outfits.

As much as I do love "The Long Kiss Goodnight", when the grenade goes off and Sam Jackson and Geena Davis out run the explosion down the hall to escape the fire (?) and shoot out the window to jump out just in time has to be #1 stoopid.

No kidding, I saw a couple in The Transporter 2 this morning that were as bad as anything on this list.

A friend of mine loved that movie and made a bunch of us watch it one night at his place (as far back as I can remember he loved the "I like this so you need to, also!" marathons at his place). He got pretty upset when I said that very scene in The Long Kiss Goodnight was pretty stupid. Years later, we got into an argument about whether the part in American Psycho where he blows up the cop car with the handgun was a clear hint that the whole thing was in his imagination. He said I read too much into movie explosions.

While I understand your point, Troll 3 had a toy helicopter that LOOKED like a toy helicopter.

Reminds me of the scene from Ind3 where the dad makes the birds fly into the German plane. Uggg....

Please tell me that the exploding shark from the 1977 Batman Movie is on there.

Goes to check..
 
2014-04-08 03:39:10 PM  
List is a total fail without Batman shark.

Batman Shark. had forgotten that.

Even as a kid (and I loved the Batman TV series), I was "Why did that shark blow up?"

ransack.: the opposite of charity is justice:

Why is that mirrored?


It was probably ripped from a YouTube video and YouTube videos are often mirrored to avoid the Content ID detector.

Your_Huckleberry: He got pretty upset when I said that very scene in The Long Kiss Goodnight was pretty stupid.


He got upset because he'd just discovered that his friend was a terrible human being.

/Long Kiss Goodnight is, without a doubt, the best action movie starring Geena Davis and Samuel L. Jackson ever made.
 
2014-04-08 04:02:51 PM  
Holy shiat, there was a Troll 3? Troll 2 was so terrible there was a documentary made about how bad it was...and it still got a sequel.
 
2014-04-08 04:02:54 PM  
List fails without Shawshank. shiat doesn't explode like that.
 
2014-04-08 04:12:23 PM  
Say what you will about Gerry Anderson's shows (Fireball XL-5, Stingray, Thunderbirds, et. al.), they kept generations of kids happy and entranced because they had the Greatest. Explosions. EVER! for kids shows.

LOL farking Col Klink?? I didnt remember that. LMAO
 
2014-04-08 04:40:00 PM  
Stupid blogger. Baysplosions are nothing like real explosions. Bay makes pretty explosions that look good on film, not explosions based on reality. Way too much pretty and somewhat-slow burning gasses that look good for the camera and not enough concussive blast and not-as-pretty debris flying at high speeds.
