  1. Not bike related but,

    What is the most overrated, painfull movie you ever had to endure?

    Mine, The English Patient.

  2. Oh Dear
    I took my fiance and my mother in my 1961 Anglia, to a drive-in to see Doctor Zhivago. I crawled into the back seat and tried to sleep while they blubbered their way through three hours of turgid tosh. Never again!!!

  7. Where do you start :)

    Only film that actually drove me to walk out of the cinema was Traffic, what a huge steaming pile of doggy doos.

    Numerous DVD's we've hired have been pretty bad (eg Team America), I think the current hit-to-miss ratio is running at 7/3.



    :D

  9. One of my housemates brought back a $5 video called R.O.T.O.R

    I ended up watching it twice (demonstrating to different people just how awful it was) which means I saw more of that crapfest than the editor did.
    At first it was one of those 'its so bad its good' experiences but it refused to let up and pushed into 'its so bad it is a pox on human artistic endeavours'

    To this day I lament the time lost

    A short review, lost the link though

    R.O.T.O.R. (1989). D: Cullen Blaine
    Incredible! I watched this few years ago, and haven't seen any copies of it since then. So, R.O.T.O.R. is so hilariously bad sci-fi / action flick that you gotta see to believe it - and it's been made in 1989!. R.O.T.O.R. is like an evil version of Robocop, he is a robot cop who isn't very nice even to ordinary people. Please let me know if you find somewhere this forgotten gem of trash!

  10. Anyone else had the will-power to sit through 'The Postman'?

    5 hours of Kevin Costner related pain?

  12. The last movie I found especially painfull to watch was House of Flying Daggers.

    And any other movie a former girlfriend would pick. It's now one of the things I look for in a girl - taste in movies!

  15. erghhh.... do you have to have endured through the WHOLE thing or can you have flicked it off before the psycotic behaviour kicked in?

    flicked it off - Starship troopers 2 - MY GOD WHAT A PILE OF CRAP! i loved the forst one, and i knew the second was done on a low budget, but no low budget could make a movie this bad. i mean look at peter jacksons early movies, they were brilliant! :D

    actually watched and unfortunately soaked some of it in - curse of the confederate cannibals - i guess i got some good gear that nights cos i couldn't get my arse over to the VCR to turn it off. deadset horrible movie, not cos of the gore, i love gore, but the painful acting and even worse story made it close to unbearable. like starship troopers 2, it was just too painful to even be regarded as funny :shock:

  17. Kiss Of The Spider Woman. Saw it back in the mid 80's at Hoyts Cinema's in Bourke St. My mate thought it would be good coz he liked the advertising picture outside the cinema.

    From what I remember, it was about a couple of gay dudes in prison. At 15, this wasn't that interesting to me. :?
