Nope. Highlander II, worst and most offensive film ever made.
Wait. Is Star Trek V slightly crappier?
Wait the Beowulf starring Christopher Lambert may actually be worse.
Wait Halle Berry's Catwoman might be a contender.

A more ardent Star Trek fan than myself would be hard to find however I have written at length about my feelings toward The Final Fronier. Smile

Until today I was not aware of Stasis and therefore I have no opinion however I will have a look and will prepare myself to be disgusted. Smile

Yes. 100% this.


Starship Troopers is also right up there as one of the worst too.
Bugs on the surface with no technology fire plasma out their butts and destroy orbiting Starships.......and send an asteroid across the galaxy to hit earth.....and magically move from planet to planet.....

Jaws 4. There is a physic connection between the shark and Mrs Brody and the entire Brody family.....Chief Brody died of a heart attack offscreen that his wife claimed was because his fear of sharks....It's supposed to be the same damn shark from the previous movies that was blown up 3 times....

That's one of those movies where you either loved it or you hated it. Not a lot of in-between. I loved it, but will admit that the asteroid thing was a stretch. The sequels were pretty terrible, since they dropped the satire in favor of straight up humans vs. giant bugs.

I can buy the first bit (bugs evolving weaponry and the ability to zap stuff and whatnot) because there's enough scifi precedent for that sort of thing, but the asteroid is the sort of problem that derails the narrative and sends me down a mental rabbit hole. Did it come from another system? It would take years to reach Earth. If it came from this system, how? How did the bugs target it? How was it not detected before it hit when Earth had seriously advanced space tech? It's not a fatal flaw, but it is annoying.

I think the asteroid was directed through a worm hole.

Perfect clarity .. and all is well with the world .. Starship Troopers rules!!


Eh! But all jokes aside ST is a satire .. the whole ST universe is a nod to the current state of play, our values, commercially obsessed humans, how we hate, what we hate, how we as a group rally to fight our popular demons: migrants, blacks, mexicans, liberals, conservatives, communists, wealth, profit, oil, other nations resources, other vermin.

what rallies us.. walls, statutes... hahaha

I have a lot of forgiveness for Star Trek in general. As I've said elsewhere, I consider myself a diehard fan, even though I haven't really enjoyed much of anything they've done since DS9 ended, which was almost 20 years ago.

ST: V was terrible. I can give an itemized list of why ST: V was terrible, and it would look a lot like the whole script.

I don't usually nitpick things unless I enjoy them. Highlander II sucked, but I can't remember why Highlander II sucked. I don't care enough to remember.

Catwoman sucked because they thought Halle Berry in skintight leather would be a distraction from the plot or lack thereof. There are directors who may have been able to make that work. That wasn't one of them.

I didn't see Beowulf.

Dark Shadows. That's two hours of my life that I could have spent doing something more meaningful, such as watching paint dry.

Wow, I totally don't remember that. But it is a perfectly acceptable generic scifi plot thingy.

Well, considering the original book was published in 1959, maybe not current per se. (Or maybe indicative of how little some things change.)

I prefer the book myself. Thought the satire in the movie was not obvious enough.
