The 20 Most Hated Movies Ever Made
Different from the “20 worst movies” list we made several days ago, this time the movies selected are notorious ones, the ones that you have probably seen and hated, the ones that everybody felt pissed off after seeing and couldn’t help writing “vicious” comments on. If you have seen any of the movies listed below, join the hate group with us!
20. Sex And The City 2
The Movie: Carrie, Samantha and the other two head off to enjoy/insult Abu Dhabi in a chick flick that is longer than 2001: A Space Odyssey.
Why It Was Hated: Well, the fellas would have hated it regardless, but even female fans turned on a show that had lost its bite for xenophobic cheap shots and self-parody.
Typical Online Review: “A horrible movie, with nothing to offer either than the envy of you being in adu dabi, honestly i should have never even entered the cinema room to watch this low acting, plotless piece of shit.” Pedro H, Rotten Tomatoes
19. The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen
The Movie: Alan Moore’s cheeky British spin on the superhero tag-team became a notorious disaster that drove star Sean Connery into retirement.
Why It Was Hated: Moore’s disciples sided with the cankanterous comic writer after he disowned it for sucking out the originality into a cookie-cutter blockbuster.
Typical Online Review: “This is the only movie that I can think of where after it ended, I was seething with anger at the waste of money and time on the part of myself and everyone involved in making it. No wonder Alan Moore refused to have anything to do with V for Vendetta (a phenomenal film) after this debacle. It’s not bad in an entertaining way, like Showgirls. It’s bad in a way that makes you want to claw your eyes out.” pleh, IMDb
18. Battlefield Earth
The Movie: Star/producer John Travolta uses his post-Tarantino cachet to make his dream project, an adaptation of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard’s sci-fi epic.
Why It Was Hated: Travolta’s hubris – he declared the film “like Star Wars, only better” – became a rallying cry to disparage a film of universally poor artistic choices, not least amongst them the hairdos.
Typical Online Review: “The end result is a product that is a real mess with almost nothing of value in it. It is relentlessly shoddy and I almost wish the ‘worst film ever’ hype would drop off just so that this film could slowly fade from our memory and be lost in time.” bob the moo, IMDb
17. The Wicker Man
The Movie: Neil LaBute remakes the British pagan-horror classic with Crazy Nic Cage taking on the role of the naïve copper first essayed by Edward Woodward.
Why It Was Hated: LaBute’s notoriously non-PC opinions turned the murderous community into a harem of harpies, the misogyny symbolised by a soon-to-be-infamous scene where Cage punches a woman while dressed in a bear suit.
Typical Online Review: “what ever you do do not waste your time on this pointless. movie. A remake that did not need to be retold. Everyone coming out of the theater had the same comments. Worst movie I ever saw. Save your time and money!!!” drummerofgash, IMDb
