Yeah Rollin's films are an aquired taste (I've yet to find anyone else besides myself who actually enjoys watching them!) with Fascination being one of the best. I really like Night of the Hunted though; probably my favourite Rollin. However Living Dead Girl, Les Demoniaques, and Grapes of Death are also Rollin faves of mine.
As for the worst films I've seen... numerous ones unfortunately. Sometimes it's not so much the film, but the cast that annoy me. Also many so-called 'serious' action films annoy me that go all out on special effects, and character development but side-line the story and use 'phoney science' to tell a story. Films like Armageddon, Deep Impact, The Core, The Day After Tomorrow etc. are definite no-no's on my TV. Don't get me wrong I like a good action flick, but when some start getting too self involved or completely proposterous I have to turn off.
Other films I can't stand are these new-wave comedy take-off's like the Scary Movies or the more recent Epic Movie / Superhero Movie rubbish. They're just made for 12 year old wankers to giggle at and repeat lines from with all their mates.
Now, where I become more contoversial in my choices, is that I dislike the following movies that are deemed to be heralded classics intently:
- The Abyss
- Apocalypse Now
- Forrest Gump
- Mary Poppins
- Pretty Woman
- Withnail & I
However I could list loads of awful films (mainly horror - as that is the most common genre I watch). If I watched teen comedy's non-stop I bet you I could list a hell of a lot more!
'Stolen' from my post in the thread 'Horror movies to avoid at all costs!' I would also choose:
- Cherry Falls
- Confessions of a Serial Killer
- Creepshow III
- Dark Ride
- Halloween H20
- Queen of the Damned
- I Know What You Did Last Summer
- Phantasm IV: Oblivion
- Return of The Living Dead 5: Rave to the Grave
- Vampires Los Meurtos
- The Watcher
- Wicker Man (remake)
- Wind Chill
- Wrong Turn
- Zombie Doom
Plus some of the aforementioned teen / crap comedies I have had the unfortunate chance to be able to see:
- American Pie (I have only seen 1-3, and can say I do not wish to see any more of them
- Dodgeball (Dodgebollocks more like)
- 40 Year Old Virgin
- Old School
... basically anything with Will Ferrell, Steve Carrell, or Owen Wilson is best avoided I find.
As to other films I can think of off the top of my head that don't fit into the groups above...
- Battle Royale II
- Phone Booth
- The Pyjama Girl Case
- Resident Evil Apocalypse
... I could probably go on forever. There are certain films I haven't seen and would probably avoid watching, as they would most certainly be on this list!
