Here is a list of the 100 worst-reviewed movies ever, as measured by percentage of positive vs. negative reviews. Catwoman is only #100, so you know there are some bad ones here.

except I don't think it should be of all time; '40s and '50s b-movies shouldn't count, because they weren't really supposed to be all that good, and in some cases it wasn't their fault that all they had to make a flying saucer was a pie-pan on a string. I am more interested in present day movies that had big budgets and the like, and that someone thought would be a good idea, but turned out to be incredibly bad, Catwoman being a prime example.

I actually started working on the list but stopped when I realized what was going on. It's worst reviewed but the problem is that there are a few movies that either haven't come out yet (except sneak previews) or JUST came out like 3 days ago and they only have a few reviews. The Number 23 is a new movie, so the reading isn't accurate, but Catwoman has been around a while so it can count. etc.

This is true. But Norbit was on the list, so it is reasonably current.

It's current but what I'm saying is that just picking a snapshot of Rotten Tomatoes would show something like this, where newer movies seem to have worse ratings than movies that are older (due to a larger response, supposedly). I mean, I am sure Catwoman and Elektra are worse than The Number 23.

Hm, you mean besides "Ishtar?" I think "Give My Regards to Broadstreet" starring Sir Paul and Co. would qualify. Ditto for "Jaws 3-D." I can't believe I *paid* money to watch those uh 'movies.'

Oh and lets not forget "Maximum Overdrive." Proof positive Stephen King should NOT direct his own films. Yeesh.

200 Motels is safe. So is Look Who's Talking Now

So I'm pretty safe picking movies released in 2000 or earlier. Only 5 of these were made between the beginning of time and then. After that come the worst shit of all time, a significant amount of it in the last five months. Wow. Bush really does suck.

No time to look through a slide show. Is there a simple list?

My wife is related to Kent Taylor (Gangbusters, Boston Blacky, and even a bit part in a Mae West film.) However, a lot of his movies belong on the list. We saw "Monster of 10,000 Leagues". Presumably the producers though a league was a tenth of an inch because the monster hung out about 90 feet down. The worst plot hole is that a Navy battleship gets destroyed right off the coast and nobody every shows up to investigate. Of course, it did look like a two dollar plastic model ship.

Kent Taylor trivia: He is the source of the "Kent" in Clark Kent. Clark Gable was the source of "Clark".
