Top Ten Questions About Bad Movies to Ask People

We've all seen a fair selection of bad movies, but what is it that makes them downright dreadful for you?

The Top Ten

1 Plot Ripoff or Bad Remake?

It highly depends on what it involves, or fails to involve, for me. It could just take the dialogue from a classic, or the basic plot idea, but never both. - PositronWildhawk

A plot ripoff is way worse than a bad remake in my opinion.

Bad remake is worse - PeeledBanana

Bad remake. - IcetailofWishClan

2 Bad Acting or Bad CGI?

I'd go with bad CGI. If there's good acting with it, it can still be an alright film. But where the worst film I've seen, Birdemic, is concerned, the unrealistic acting is much more believable than the appalling effects. - PositronWildhawk

My pick goes to bad CGI - EpicJake

You should see Foodfight!

Bad CGI - iliekpiez

3 Revenge of the Fallen or Age of Extinction?

I could actually take Revenge of the Fallen seriously. Age of Extinction couldn't even be a joke! - PositronWildhawk

I like Revenge of the Fallen. Only Transformers movie I don't like is Age of Extinction. - IronSabbathPriest

Revenge of the Fallen but I also like Age of Extinction. - 05yusuf09

4 Bad Sequel to Good Movie or Good Sequel to Bad Movie?

I'd rather the original plot for a film was worth seeing than have them revamp it to make it good. - PositronWildhawk

Good sequel to a bad movie. Because it's a good sequel, so I would want to watch it!

Good sequel to a bad movie to redeem the first one.

Good Sequel - BlazingParasol

5 Phantom Menace or Attack of the Clones?

I don't think either of these films should receive the hate that they do, even if they are the two worst Star Wars films. But Attack of the Clones is better by a long shot. - PositronWildhawk

Attack of the clones by a mile. Less Jar Jar, WIndu with his lightsaber and Obi Wan is finally a jedi knight

I prefer Phantom. Both great films though. - IronSabbathPriest

Liked both - blackflower

6 Bad Visuals or Bad Sounds?

Bad sounds. The visual editing is more critical in making or breaking a movie. - PositronWildhawk

Bad visuals. Bad BGM just puts me off, and I instantly lose interest on any movie I'm watching. - Kiteretsunu

sounds - PeeledBanana

Bad Sounds - iliekpiez

7 Batman & Robin or Superman IV?

Every moment of the former makes you think, what the hell am I doing with my time on Earth? - PositronWildhawk

Superman IV is definitely a very bad movie, but in my opinion Batman & Robin is far worse - Ajkloth

Never seen them - PeeledBanana

Superman IV - iliekpiez

8 Star Trek I or Star Trek V?

Equals for me, but a heavy debate swinging to both sides. That said, I think Star Trek I would disappoint more people. - PositronWildhawk

Both are fine - blackflower

Star Trek V - iliekpiez

9 Ice Age: Continental Drift or Shrek Forever After?

Both are absolutely terrible conclusions to popular children's series. Ice Age 4 is the more intrinsically bad film, but Shrek 4 has done more to bring the series down to a low level. - PositronWildhawk

I'd say Ice Age 4 is worse. - IronSabbathPriest

Shrek forever after is way worse.

Shrek Forever After - iliekpiez

13 Skyline or Jupiter Ascending?

Jupiter Ascending actually had plot development, and although the plot was hopeless, the special effects were done perfectly. I have nothing positive to say about Skyline. - PositronWildhawk

Jupiter Ascending - iliekpiez

35 Plan 9 from Outer Space or the Room?

These are the two most popular candidates for the title of "worst". What do I think? I think that...The Room is SLIGHTLY better (though in this case, that just means "less bad"). Plan 9 retains its title as the worst EVER.
