the only film that i have walked ouy on so far is
War of the worlds

as for films i have seen ( and not bothered to buy) are:
Signs

tremors
Waterworld
Flight of the navigator
Short circuit


I must have really bad taste in films...loved or liked all the above - and Catwoman!

Only films i've ever turned off:
Flintstones
Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

OH, Cabin Fever. Watched once and thought it was boring crap.  But, can't seem to get rid of it for the one good scene - if you've seen it you'll know which one...it's has squelching sounds.

For my job I have to watch a lot of films in cinemas, and there are always some stinkers. I've seen Stealth (the only cinema screening in Holland; it went straight to dvd) and Get rich or die tryin' (with Fiddy in attendance).

Latest turd I saw on dvd: Last days. Horrible. Just horrible. Even when you play it fastforward.

Hannibal - I will never get tired of watching "The Silence of the Lambs" and yet I hated Hannibal.  It simply is a bad movie, absolutely no subtility and the end does not even come close to resembling the book.

What do you think of "Manhunter"? You know, the one by Michael Mann (not that stupid remake "Red Dragon").

The most laughing movies are terrible,.. One of them was Dodge Ball I saw it in the airplane. That is the movie I never would buy.

Saw Napoleon Dynamite round a mate's house. Absolutely hated it. I could quite happily have taken a baseball bat to each and every one of the characters and given them their own, small, personal world of pain. I think I'd have tried to demolish the town as well. Grass growing or paint drying holds more interest and laughs IMO.

If I don't like a film I watch on DVD, I get rid, usually on Ebay. Can't see the sense in saving a film I don't like! But, two exceptions, simply for reference more than anything else: The Worst Film Ever Made Ever (Last House on the Left) & Really Rubbish Comic Adaption (Judge Dredd)

Really, really a waste of time and money:
                        Dating Drew
                        Dogville

...at least there was truth in advertizing notes on the covers, both said "this year's biggest sleeper" I had no idea they meant the catching Z-Z-Z-z-z-z-z's kind of sleepers!

As a Sherlock Holmes near-completist, I picked up

Sherlock: Case of Evil
The Sherlock Holmes Collection (Matt Frewer as Holmes)
The Hound of the Baskervilles (excruciating comedy misfire by Cook & Moore)

Such are the dangers of being a near-completist.

There's one TV series I was anxious to see, and regrettably I got a few episodes on an Alpha Video release:

The Adventures of Fu Manchu

Worst Asian impersonation in a long and dishonorable tradition.

One of the worst movies to win a major Academy Award:

Training Day

(Due to Halle Berry's shameless race-based lobbying, no doubt.)

A particularly egregious waste of talents:

The Murders in the Rue Morgue

(George C. Scott, Val Kilmer and Rebecca de Mornay attempt to stretch out a Poe trifle which really never made any sense in the first place.)

Oh yeah, another near-completist piece of crap, category: Dutch language DVDs available in R1:

I Love You Too (Ik ook van jou)

Boring, boring, boring. The female lead is hard to take; the male lead's taking her is hard to take.

Catherine Deneuve wing of near-completism:

Don't Touch the White Woman (Touche pas à la femme blanche)
The Convent (O convento)

Well, depends on the country you're living. For example, here in germany you can't sell rated 18 stuff (and above) on ebay. Or movies that aren't released in germany yet (it's called illegal parallel imports).

- Election (boring as hell) -> can't sell because there is no german release
- Mr. Vampire first RC3 release -> this DVD is so bad, nobody would buy it even if it was legal to sell it (the movie itself is good though)
- On the Mountain of Tai Hang (pro mao communist propaganda crap)
- Resident Evil: Apocalypse (first movie was fun, what happened?) -> rated 18, can't sell

The only DVD that I ever removed from my collection is Kevin and Perry go large.

That is the worst movie I have ever seen.

I watched Down With Love at a friend's house the other night and wished I hadn't.
This royal throne of kings, this sceptred isle,
This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars,
This other Eden, demi-paradise,
This fortress built by Nature for herself
Against infection and the hand of war,
This happy breed of men, this little world,
This precious stone set in the silver sea,
Which serves it in the office of a wall
Or as a moat defensive to a house,
Against the envy of less happier lands,--
This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.
