But now I am watching The Reader and loving it already, maybe my luck is changing...
Both the book and movie of The Time Traveler's Wife are very overrated, which is a shame because the premise itself is quite interesting.

If you like The Reader you should read the original. Really good stuff.

We need a thread just to discuss movies we've seen cause I can't believe some of the films being brought up in the thread.

I saw the last half of Ang Lee's Hulk last week and it was so unsatisfying. The CG was horrible and the ending was weak. Jennifer Connelly staring into the camera was the best thing about the movie.

I guess I meant that we need a movie for bad movies and not "the worst movies."

For me, the hands down worst movie I've ever seen was "Deep Blue Sea" (1999). I gave it a chance because I've liked Samuel L. Jackson since Pulp Fiction, but it was Awful. No one could have made that movie any better.

I also saw Hausu (mentioned here earlier) but that didn't seem like a bad movie to me, it was just complete mindfuck and other people agreed with me that it's just the way you imagine an LSD-trip to be.

The worst movie of all time for me is Tommy Wiseau's The Room. It features the silliest dialogues I have ever heard, acted in the worst way I have ever seen anybody acting and the story is just plain stupid. The somewhat famous "Oh hi Marc" dialogue really belongs to the worst scenes I've ever seen. And this movie features a lot more "worst scenes". I still can't believe I even endured watching this. Twice.

I watched two movies same day last year because I had about 6 hours of idle time between 2 jobs.

And I can say this was better one.
Other one was Space Battleship Yamato.

YES, totally agree. As for The Reader (finished! Loved!), I read the book first; finished it a week or so ago. Loved it. If a movie's based on a book and I have the time, I like to read the book first.
