Movies can be entertaining, liberating, revolutionary, romantic etc. but some movies are just plain stupid. They are an insult to the intelligence of the audience. From bad writing to bad direction and bad acting by bad actors, such movies are an assault at every sense you possess. Every year many such movies are made. Some make it to the box office even if only to fail, while others you never even hear about. Here are such top 10 movies that are a total waste of human intellect.
10. Napoleon Dynamite:
Napoleon Dynamite is a movie made by Jared and Jerusha Hess in 2004. It’s a comedy drama that has to be watched without using your brains. Interestingly the movie was released to good reviews and has since become a cult classic. The character of Napoleon Dynamite has spawned off other franchises including a cartoon series.
9. Epic Movie:
Parodies are usually pretty mindless movies. Their whole goal is to make fun of other hit movies. Epic Movie is just such a parody comedy movie released in 2007. It is a spoof on The Chronicles of Narnia, the Harry Potter movies and Tim Burton’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, among others. The plot makes no sense and things happen randomly.
8. Scary Movie:
Another mindless parody movie is the complete scary movie franchise. 5 movies have been made so far each of which make fun of certain horror movies and popular culture of that time. In some parts the movies can be genuinely funny but then something completely mindless happens and you are turned off again. This series is the height of nonsense movie making.
7. Dumb and Dumberer: When Harry met Lloyd:
Dumb and dumber was a good movie especially because of the good actors but the prequel that was released in 2003 could not come anywhere close to the original. It’s a poor attempt at trying to use a hit concept to make a popular movie. If you haven’t seen it it’s not worth wasting time on.
6. Legally Blonde:
Legally blonde was comedy movie of 2001. It’s about a blonde sorority girl who decides to become a lawyer to win back her ex-boyfriend. The movie got great reviews and led to a sequel and another DVD movie. It’s best to watch this movie without using your brain and watch it for Reese Witherspoon’s acting more than anything else.
5. The Fountain:
If you can watch this movie and come out with even a little sense of what the story was all about you’ll be a genius and also have a severe headache. The Fountain was released in 2006 and is a romantic movie where three parallel stories try to explain love and death. That’s all you can say about the movie; what happens in the story is incomprehensible.
Jason Statham is given a lethal Chinese poison that has no antidote in the beginning of the movie. He doesn’t die till the end of the movie. That should tell you how mindless Crank really is. Throughout the movie Statham’s character, Chev Chelios, is looking for an adrenalin rush which is the only thing keeping him alive; mindless action follows.
3. Manos: The Hands of Fate:
Manos: The Hands of Fate was released in 1966 and is notorious as the worst film ever made. It is so notorious in fact that it has now become a cult classic. The movie is the story of a family that loses its way while on vacation and end up in a lodge that is run by a pagan cult. The film is bad in every way and that makes it truly horrible.
2. Drive Angry:
Maybe it’s just me but every Nicolas Cage movie seems mindless to me. Drive Angry is a recent installment of the Cage mindless movies having been released in 2011. Cage plays a criminal who escapes hell to take revenge from a satanic cult leader who killed his daughter and kidnapped his granddaughter. They have cars and stuff. Oh and it’s in 3D.
Beerfest is a 2006 comedy about drinking beer. A couple of Americans find that their grandfather had stolen a beer formula from a German family and they go to a secret beer festival to avenge their family’s honor. The movie inspired a series of beer games that are now played at every party all around the world but as a movie it was a horrible nonsensical collection of talking pictures, to say the least.
