flick flops

And now, the stinkers! Users of MSN UK vote for the worst movies ever. In no particular order:

* Solaris
* The Avengers
* Batman & Robin
* Battlefield Earth
* Catwoman
* Independence Day
* Pearl Harbor
* The Village
* Spice World
* Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest
* Lost in Translation
* Highlander 2
* Forrest Gump
* Die Another Day
* Crash
* The Blair Witch Project

Whilst I agree with majority of the choices, I am shocked to see some of my favorites on that list. Choosing Crash (2006 Oscar best picture winner and one of the best ensemble dramas) over Titanic (the most over-rated film of all time) is a travesty. The only impressive thing about the latter is it's box-office taking. And how can Lost in Translation be worst than Rocky? They must be having a laugh. The whole series is a joke. Especially the fifth installment. Although Forrest Gump isn't exactly great; it couldn't be any badder than Deuce Bigalow. And don't even start with me on The Blair Witch Project. IMHO, it's one of the scariest and most original movies of all time. Surely, those voters didn't see its ridiculously crappy sequel (Book of Shadows)!

What about Showgirls, Striptease, Judge Dredd and Kull the Conqueror? And no Keannu Reeves' Johnny Mnemonic?!? What is the world coming to?
