The Worst Movie Ever Made

This is an exhaustingly paced, excruciatingly boring, poorly-acted, badly written lump of crap. Thoughts?

For fuck sake! IT WAS MADE FOR KIDS!!! They have no idea what good acting is and (about the plot) a lot of them need the sense of purpose. A little bit of ideology, so what. I've seen much worse movies. It is very sentimental, but I think kids are able to like it. Visuals are not the worst at all. I'm never gonna watch it again, of course, because of its embarrassingly awful acting, but this is not The Worst Movie Ever Made, I think.

I swear to "movie god", as Ang Lee quoted last Oscars, that this movie will move you in mind and heart. If you don't feel anything that way, well watch other crappy family movies.

Thank you, The Master of Movies. Just because it lacked sex and violence it doesn't make it boring.

No, because it lacked good characters, good acting, a coherent plot, and tolerable dialogue. But sure, insult me all you want. I've got plenty of time.

Terrible writing, God-awful acting, horrible direction, characters I couldn't give two shits about, boring visuals, a lame-ass story. This movie was the anus of cinema.

I thought Airplane! was the worst film you've seen. I haven't seen Airplane, or Hugo, but if I had to make a guess, I most likely will not agree with you at all. I heard Airplane was one of the funniest films of all time, while Hugo showed that Scorsese can execute family-friendly themes and do it masterfully. But I'll always respect others people's opinions, especially the opinion of a fellow Big Lebowski fan.

Jun 3 - 09:12 AM

Diego Tutweiller

The Artist Formerly Known as Tutweiller

I haven't seen Airplane! for a while, so my review may be out of date. I will say this, though-- Hugo had no plot and abysmal acting. And I commend you for not falling to the level of the trolls, and leaving such insightful comments as "Fuck you, moron" and "FUcking trollllllllll". You are clearly the rare 1% of intelligent Rotten Tomatoes users.

No plot? Please.
A young boy whose job is winding the clocks at a train station owns an automaton, found by his father, who worked at a museum.
Hugo steals machine parts from a toy maker to fix the automaton.
The toy maker turns out to be Georges Melies, one of the first movie makers.
Georges Melies' movies were forgotten after World War I. Melies tries to forget the past.
Hugo "fixes" Melies by helping him remember his movies.

Loose plot ends everywhere. No villain. Horrible, cringe-worthy dialogue. Random and unnecessary 3-D shit. Horrible child acting. Utterly moronic storyline. The guy burned his own movies? Retarded. The movie sucked. The end.

In what sense do you mean that, good sir? Do you wish to imply that the thread itself is fecal matter? Do you mean that my opinion is shit? Do you intend to convey your thoughts on the increasingly moronic responses to my forums? I doubt the latter, as you have just posted something that would fall under that category.

I completely agree, this movie is terrible. I like movies that have a good INTERESTING storyline with well developed characters and possibly a message. Ratatouille was good. The Incredibles was good. Up was good. (Notice I'm only mentioning animations?). Radio was a good movie.

People who hate this movie only like action and killing and dying and swearing and humour and all that stuff. They don't care if it is totally epic, great story, or any of the really important things.

Jan 6 - 02:56 PM

Jonathan Mcfest

I hate violent movies, although the Mission Impossible series was good. How is this "totally epic, great story"? It's a hideous looking boy who lives in a giant clock in Paris and finds a robot. Then he goes to a library and finds yet another pig faced girl and they invade a house and a bunch of papers fly out of a briefcase. In the end, a French guy chases the little boy onto some train tracks with a nightstick. I stopped watching there, hoping the boy would be hit by the train.

Jan 17 - 01:26 PM

Diego Tutweiller

The Artist Formerly Known as Tutweiller

That's an unfair generalization. I hate tons of action movies as well, but this one takes the cake, in the sense that it doesn't even have any decent visuals to offer (at least A Good Day to Die Hard had some, and it was a shit movie).
Hugo is exhaustingly boring, and makes monotonous use of the 3D effects by having unnecessary plumes of smoke fly at the audience for no apparent reason. The story is moronic, and absolutely nothing ends up happening at the end. Why was the old guy so depressed? Oh, because he BURNED HIS OWN DAMN MOVIES. There was no villain in this piece of shit, and no, Sacha Baron Cohen doesn't count. He's too laughable to be the bad guy in ANY film.
Not to mention the child acting. OH GOD, NOT THE ACTING. This kid was worse than Jake Lloyd in The Phantom Menace. And that says a lot. "I thought if I could fix him... I wouldn't be so alone..." FUCK!!! Who WRITES shit like that? Who SAYS shit like that? AAAARGH...
Anyway, you don't have to say you liked it just because it's supposed to be good. And you don't have to say you liked it just because it's 'dramatic'. This film is a lump of shit, the likes of which haven't been seen on such a scale since 'August Rush'.

I got through half of it, then got bored. It seemed to take off in a direction that didn't fit with the beginning. I might go back to see what happened but it was dark and disjointed and I didn't like the main characters, so that makes it hard to enjoy.

The Artist Formerly Known as Tutweiller

Of course, good sir: Here's my biggest problem with this movie-- It makes a big deal of talking about how if he 'unlocks the secret' to the machine his father built, it'll tell him some secrets. So all through the movie, the audience thinks that the dad was murdered, seeing as he died under suspicious circumstances. But NO! That WHOLE plot point just petered out and died halfway through the movie. Plus, why was the old guy so sad about his movie career? HE'S THE ONE WHO BURNED THE FILMS!!! There were no villains in this story, except Sacha Baron Cohen, and he's too funny to hate. Also, the kid actor was TREMENDOUSLY underqualified to work in a Martin Scorsese picture. All around, a pointless, boring, and mind-bogglingly badly written mess of a movie that eventually eats itself.

By that logic, Kiki's Delivery Service is an awful movie too (just to use it as an example, as it has no villain either.)

Not to say that you can't hate the movie, but obstacles can come from other places than an antagonist...
