Empire Magazine has put together their voter-generated list of the Top 10 Worst Movies of All Time. Leading the pack by a wide margin was Batman and Robin, outdistancing runner up Battlefield Earth which, quite frankly, would have gotten my vote. You can check out the entire rundown here: http://ca.movies.yahoo.com/news/movies.reuters.com/worst-movies-all-time-led-clooneys-batman-reuters. Of course, whenever someone puts together one of these lists, the same questions always arise: Is it possible to generate a list of this nature using purely objective parameters? What constitutes a “bad film”? How come Showgirls didn’t make the list? Check the Terrible Ten according to Empire, then come back here and give me your list. Mine would certainly include Battlefield Earth and The Happening, but would also find room for the aforementioned Showgirls, Barb Wire, Color of Night, Boxing Helena, 88 Minutes, Meet the Fockers, Howard the Duck, and Caddyshack II. In all fairness, I’m sure there are worse films out there but I’ve obviously limited my selections to movie’s I’ve actually seen – and those that have left the most recent/painful marks on my fragile psyche.
