"Dumb and Dumber". Classic.

But Godfather (I & II) and Chinatown merit consideration.


Dumb and Dumber is the Woist Movie Evah!

Definitely The Razor's Edge (1984).



I hate to think how it may have influence my life, though. Confused

@Ticomaya,
Is it violent? My family pre-screens violent movies for me and then gives me a "J" factor between 'You can take it' and 'Fahgetaboutit!'

The Godfather movies were on the 'You can take it' scale. Gangs of New York was 'Fahgetaboutit!'

@ehBeth,
Saw it once. Liked it. I should put it in the queue for a re-watch.

Mr B informs me that we own it on VHS. I'll watch it sometime.

Thannks!

Never heard of it.

My netflicks queue isn't nearly as anemic as it was before I started this thread.

@Kolyo,
Another one I haven't seen in a long time. Definitely due for a re-watch!

edit: Speaking of Bill Murray... we watched 'Lost in Translation' repeatedly when we got it on Netflix and then went out and bought it. We've only watched it once or twice since, but liked it a lot.

I wouldn't say it was a brilliant film, but there's plenty that are a lot worse, like anything with Adam Sandler in.

@panzade,
I don't know about anyone else, I just think he's terrible. I'm not alone.

The Razzie Award for Worst Actor is an award presented at the annual Golden Raspberry Awards to the worst actor of the previous year. The following is a list of nominees and recipients of that award, along with the film(s) for which they were nominated.

Only one winner of the Worst Actor Razzie has ever shown up at the ceremony and collected his award in person, Tom Green for the film Freddy Got Fingered.

Sylvester Stallone holds the record for most Razzies in this category with four. Other actors with multiple wins are Kevin Costner and Adam Sandler with three, and Pauly Shore with two

Blade Runner was comparable to The Godfather violence-wise. Maybe just a little worse, depending on how you feel about violence against humanoid robots.

Yeah, I've liked all his serious movies.

He has an unfair advantage over other actors where I'm concerned, too, in that he reminds me of my father.

I guess I'm the first to answer with a animated film as well as a nonEnglish language AKA Foreign film with Hayao Myazaki's Spirited Away.

An impossible ask, love a lot of whats already been mentioned, especially Blade runner.

I'm going to say........ The fountain.

I heard that the studio severly muddled Dan Aronosky's vision and one day I hope he puts out a director's cut. I love the film as is but I expect a greater masterpiece is in order if the director gets his way.
