The 50 Day Movie Challenge asks one question every day, to be answered by a few paragraphs and a clip, if possible. Click here for the full list of questions.
Today’s prompt: What’s the worst movie you’ve ever seen?
The worst-made movie I’ve ever seen is probably Troll 2, but that movie is awesome in its badness. When it comes to my absolute least favorite, suck-my-soul-out bad movies, they’re ones that are not only crappy, but dull and lifeless also. There are a few that could fill that role – Batman & Robin, Harvard Man, The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, and more – but I decided to go with the 1998 version of The Avengers, with Ralph Fiennes as John Steed and Uma Thurman as Emma Peel, because not only is it a terrible movie, it mangles source material I love very much. This SHOULD HAVE BEEN a good time. And it was awful. I’ve eliminated most of it from my memory, I just remember hating it.
