1. Independence Day (1996)

PG-13 | 145 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

59 Metascore

The aliens are coming and their goal is to invade and destroy Earth. Fighting superior technology, mankind's best weapon is the will to survive.

Director: Roland Emmerich | Stars: Will Smith, Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Mary McDonnell

Votes: 474,020 | Gross: $306.17M

I know the villagers will grabbing their pitchforks and torches over the inclusion or accusing me of not liking this film because it was a huge blockbuster. That's not the case. This movie is BAD. The main reason I can't stand this film and most of his movies is Will Smith's smug look at the camera and wink acting style. Coming off the Fresh Prince he was a HUGE star and the whole Big Willy Style acting school is unwatchable. Throw in a couple of zeroes like Jeff Goldblum and Bill Paxton and that makes it excruciating. Roland Emmerich is Michael Bay's German equivalent with an environmentalist/global warming slant.

2. Romeo + Juliet (1996)

PG-13 | 120 min | Drama, Romance

60 Metascore

Shakespeare's famous play is updated to the hip modern suburb of Verona still retaining its original dialogue.

Director: Baz Luhrmann | Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Claire Danes, John Leguizamo, Harold Perrineau

Votes: 186,291 | Gross: $46.35M

First of all, I love Romeo and Juliet. I've read it half a dozen times and I love the Franco Zeffirelli-directed film a lot. It had an incredible soundtrack and young cast, you'll fall in love with a young Olivia Hussey and even cheer for a charismatic Michael Yorke as Tybalt. This was badly miscast and poorly directed. Baz Luhrmann is like Michael Bay if he had some kind of art house-indie film pretension to his filmography.

3. Titanic (1997)

PG-13 | 194 min | Drama, Romance

75 Metascore

A seventeen-year-old aristocrat falls in love with a kind but poor artist aboard the luxurious, ill-fated R.M.S. Titanic.

Director: James Cameron | Stars: Leonardo DiCaprio, Kate Winslet, Billy Zane, Kathy Bates

Votes: 893,971 | Gross: $659.33M

Leonardo DiCaprio became a huge star after this film. Kate Winslet was beautiful and classy as the destitute heiress forced into a loveless marriage and DiCaprio, well he can't hold a candle to her. If you find yourself braving this 3 hour 30 minute monstrosity then watch it for her performance and not his. Everything else about this film stinks and the old Rose throwing away a fortune like that blue diamond at the end is just stupid.

4. The Matrix Revolutions (2003)

R | 129 min | Action, Sci-Fi

47 Metascore

The human city of Zion defends itself against the massive invasion of the machines as Neo fights to end the war at another front while also opposing the rogue Agent Smith.

Directors: Lana Wachowski, Lilly Wachowski | Stars: Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, Carrie-Anne Moss, Hugo Weaving

Votes: 397,438 | Gross: $139.31M

The Wachowskis made some great movies, Bound is a fun heist thriller and The Matrix is a great work of modern science fiction. That aside, the Matrix Reloaded and Revolutions sequel took the joy out of the first film and got bogged down in pseudo-religious garbage and technobabble.

5. Hercules (2005– )

Not Rated | 240 min | Adventure, Drama, Fantasy

A chronicle of the life of the Greek hero who after killing his three sons must perform five labors to repent.

Stars: Paul Telfer, Elizabeth Perkins, Sean Astin, Leeanna Walsman

Votes: 1,776

This was really a television miniseries. Acting is terrible and like many adaptations of stories from Greek myth it has a cut and paste plot.

6. Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band (1978)

PG | 113 min | Adventure, Comedy, Fantasy

Small town band hits it big, but they must battle a nefarious plot in the music industry.

Director: Michael Schultz | Stars: Peter Frampton, Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb, Maurice Gibb

Votes: 5,336 | Gross: $12.90M

The Bee Gees and Peter Frampton couldn't save this horrible musical comedy.

7. Nutty Professor II: The Klumps (2000)

PG-13 | 106 min | Comedy, Romance, Sci-Fi

38 Metascore

Scientist Sherman Klump's inventions, his upcoming marriage to his pretty colleague Denise Gaines and his reputation are threatened by his evil clone Buddy Love.

Director: Peter Segal | Stars: Eddie Murphy, Janet Jackson, Larry Miller, John Ales

Votes: 43,629 | Gross: $123.31M

Eddie Murphy + Fat Suit = crap

8. Thunder in Paradise (1993 Video)

PG | 104 min | Adventure

Terry "Hulk" Hogan stars as R. J. "Hurricane" Spencer who is an ex-Navy S. E. A. L. and confirmed bachelor struggling to make ends meet. In order to save his superboat THUNDER (and ... See full summary »

Director: Douglas Schwartz | Stars: Hulk Hogan, Felicity Waterman, Carol Alt, Robin Weisman

Votes: 1,037

Hulk Hogan is the WORST pro wrestler to try acting. This was a pilot for an action adventure series with Hulk Hogan playing hero in a high tech speedboat. It's like an unholy marriage of Baywatch and Knight Rider.

9. Alex & Emma (2003)

PG-13 | 96 min | Comedy, Romance

32 Metascore

A writer must turn out a novel in thirty days or face the wrath of loan sharks.

Director: Rob Reiner | Stars: Luke Wilson, Kate Hudson, David Paymer, Sophie Marceau

Votes: 12,195 | Gross: $14.21M

Kate Hudson showed a lot of promise and was very good as "Band Aid" Penny Lane in Cameron Crowe's Almost Famous. Somewhere along the way she started making bad romantic comedies and never stopped.

10. Littleman (2006)

PG-13 | 98 min | Comedy, Crime

26 Metascore

A wannabe dad mistakes a vertically challenged criminal on the lam as his newly adopted son.

Director: Keenen Ivory Wayans | Stars: Shawn Wayans, Marlon Wayans, Kerry Washington, John Witherspoon

Votes: 43,863 | Gross: $58.65M

The (two untalented) Wayans Bros. steal the plot of a Looney Tunes short for a movie about a dwarf jewel thief hiding from the police in a childless couple's house.

PG-13 | 99 min | Action, Comedy, Crime

33 Metascore

In order to protect a beautiful woman and her son from a robber, a male FBI agent disguises himself as a large grandmother.

Director: Raja Gosnell | Stars: Martin Lawrence, Nia Long, Paul Giamatti, Jascha Washington

Votes: 73,029 | Gross: $117.56M

I thought Eddie Murphy abused the fat suit but he has nothing on Martin Lawrence who got three films out of this unfunny joke.

12. Big Momma's House 2 (2006)

PG-13 | 99 min | Comedy, Crime

34 Metascore

An FBI agent reprises his disguise as a corpulent old lady and takes a job as a nanny in a crime suspect's house.

Director: Michael Gottlieb | Stars: Hulk Hogan, Sherman Hemsley, Afa Anoai, Ed Leslie

Votes: 8,097 | Gross: $4.25M

Hulk Hogan is a pro wrestler turned bodyguard for some obnoxious kids whose absent minded inventor/millionare dad has some lame bad guys trying to steal his newest computer chip. David Johansen of the New York Dolls is the villain and he has a piece of shiny plastic glued to his head.

16. Nothing But Trouble (1991)

PG-13 | 94 min | Comedy

A businessman and his friends are captured by a sadistic judge and his equally odd family in the backwoods of a bizarre mansion.

Director: Dan Aykroyd | Stars: Chevy Chase, Dan Aykroyd, John Candy, Demi Moore

Votes: 19,404 | Gross: $8.48M

A yuppie and a lawyer get trapped in a hellish New England town after being caught in a speed trap. Dan Aykroyd wrote and directed this. It's almost worth watching to see where his career and Chevy Chase's started to die a slow painful death. It's even more memorable for an appearance by Digital Underground and a very young Tupac Shakur.

17. Captain America (1990)

PG-13 | 97 min | Action, Adventure, Sci-Fi

Frozen in the ice for decades, Captain America is freed to battle against arch-criminal, The Red Skull.

Director: Mark Goldblatt | Stars: Dolph Lundgren, Louis Gossett Jr., Jeroen Krabbé, Kim Miyori

Votes: 18,604

Dolph Lungdren is a hulking, non-acting, motorcycle-riding and living in the sewers Punisher. He kills a ton of Italian La Cosa Nostra and Japanese Yakuza with skull-handled knives and guns and that's about it.

19. Blade II (2002)

R | 117 min | Action, Horror, Sci-Fi

52 Metascore

Blade forms an uneasy alliance with the vampire council in order to combat the Reapers, who are feeding on vampires.

Director: Guillermo del Toro | Stars: Wesley Snipes, Kris Kristofferson, Ron Perlman, Leonor Varela

Votes: 177,360 | Gross: $82.35M

People try to point out Blade Trinity as the worst film in this trilogy but this is really the worst one. I liked Dr. Karen Jensen, the forensic hematologist, who teamed up with Blade from the first film and I think a movie about rescuing Abraham Whistler would been more interesting. Instead there were the Reapers, hybrid super vampires, that looked like fallout victims and fed on people and vampires. Blade also has a silly pseudo-romance with the vampire princess Nyssa for some reason. The weapons designer/mechanic character Scud was also nauseating.

20. Freddy Got Fingered (2001)

R | 87 min | Comedy

13 Metascore

An unemployed cartoonist moves back in with his parents and younger brother Freddy. When his parents demand he leave, he begins to spread rumors that his father is sexually abusing Freddy.

Director: Tom Green | Stars: Tom Green, Rip Torn, Marisa Coughlan, Eddie Kaye Thomas

Votes: 42,349 | Gross: $14.25M

Tom Green unleashes his special brand of banal stupidity on the world in the form of a movie he wrote, directed and starred in. It was a huge flop and Drew Barrymore soon divorced him.

PG-13 | 83 min | Comedy, Romance

Spoof of romantic comedies which focuses on a man, his crush, his parents, and her father.

It's a TV Movie of the Week remake of Rollerball but this has Wesley Snipes with nappy dreds and a horrible accent.

14 Metascore

The big thing in 2005 is a violent sport which can have some pretty serious consequences... like dying.

Director: John McTiernan | Stars: Chris Klein, Jean Reno, LL Cool J, Rebecca Romijn

Votes: 23,342 | Gross: $18.99M

Rollerball was a cult classic product of a middle 1970's Cold War America. It came along at the right place and time. There was no good reason for remaking it.

34. Wild Things (1998)

R | 108 min | Crime, Drama, Mystery

52 Metascore

A police detective uncovers a conspiracy behind a case involving a high-school guidance counselor when accusations of rape are made against him by two female students.

Director: John McNaughton | Stars: Kevin Bacon, Neve Campbell, Matt Dillon, Denise Richards

Votes: 97,582 | Gross: $29.75M

A bad attempt at an erotic thriller. There's two crap performances from Denise Richards and Neve Campbell. Matt Dillon is a such a good sleazeball that he's almost fun enough to watch but not quite. For some reason there were 3 sequels to this made that went to DVD.

35. In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale (2007)

PG-13 | 127 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy

15 Metascore

A man named Farmer sets out to rescue his kidnapped wife and avenge the death of his son, two acts committed by the Krugs, a race of animal-warriors who are controlled by the evil Gallian.

Director: Uwe Boll | Stars: Jason Statham, Ron Perlman, Ray Liotta, Leelee Sobieski

Votes: 40,685 | Gross: $4.54M

Uwe Boll is a German director responsible for numerous horrible adaptations of well known video game properties. The only thing admirable about him is his defense of his films. Boll went as far to invite several of his biggest internet critics to fight 10 round boxing matches in a bizarre PR stunt dubbed Raging Boll. He beat each of them since he has an extensive amateur boxing background and tried to pass that off as some kind of vindication. Boll even filmed this and released it as an extra for his film Postal. He apparently tried to acquire the rights to World of Warcraft but Blizzard laughed him off.

36. You've Got Mail (1998)

PG | 119 min | Comedy, Drama, Romance

57 Metascore

Two business rivals who despise each other in real life unwittingly fall in love over the Internet.

Director: Nora Ephron | Stars: Tom Hanks, Meg Ryan, Greg Kinnear, Parker Posey

Votes: 169,010 | Gross: $115.82M

The Shop Around the Corner gets turned into an AOL advertisement. This movie's an embarrassment and an insult to the better films it imitates.

37. Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace (1999)

PG | 136 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy

51 Metascore

Two Jedi Knights escape a hostile blockade to find allies and come across a young boy who may bring balance to the Force, but the long dormant Sith resurface to claim their old glory.

Director: George Lucas | Stars: Ewan McGregor, Liam Neeson, Natalie Portman, Jake Lloyd

Votes: 616,891 | Gross: $474.54M

Greed and stupidity are the central themes of the second Star Wars trilogy. The Sith Empire come out of hiding after 1000 years and the Old Galactic Republic and Jedi Order take it up the poophole. This was such a lazy and boring attempt at a film, bad dialogue, nonacting performances, and midichlorians are used as an explanation for The Force. I like Alec Guiness' original explanation, "the force is an energy field created by all living things. It sustains us, penetrates us and binds all living things together." Simple, mystical and none of the BS pseudoscience explanation of midichlorians.

38. Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002)

PG | 142 min | Action, Adventure, Fantasy

54 Metascore

Ten years after initially meeting, Anakin Skywalker shares a forbidden romance with Padmé Amidala, while Obi-Wan investigates an assassination attempt on the senator and discovers a secret clone army crafted for the Jedi.

Director: George Lucas | Stars: Hayden Christensen, Natalie Portman, Ewan McGregor, Christopher Lee

Votes: 540,126 | Gross: $310.68M

This was a slight improvement from Phantom Menace but still extremely stupid due to an underwhelming and even camp performance from Hayden Christensen as Anakin.
