Aeon Flux: Not the worst movie ever

We have a running contest at the shop to see who can come up with the worst movie ever. There are a few rules: 1) It has to be a big budget film. Not some homebrew thing. 2) It has to be unintentionally bad. Ernest movies don't count. 3) Whatever other rules we say there are. Simple enough. In any case I watched Aeon Flux on the off chance that it might be a contender. Nope, it wasn't, but it was pretty bad. The current leader is Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle, which I haven't yet had the guts to see.

I broke out the GT track bike today. Rode it to work and then went for a short ride after work. My fixed riding skills seem as good as ever, but the gearing is too high (86.2 gear inches according to Sheldon Brown), and the seat is too low. I'll take care of the saddle height before I ride it again. My knees are important to me.

That's what I was going to say, caught a few minutes of it once and became nauseous. Others to consider might be The Never Ending Story Part 2 or perhaps one of the Jean-Claude Van Damme catalog, Jurassic Park 3, Starship Troopers 2, Vertical Limit, Rambo II and III, Cliff Hanger, Tango and Cash...a trend is forming, pretty much anything with Sylvester Stallone, he should have stopped after Rocky.

Notice the high percentage of sequels. My nomination is for "Species" or possibly "Catwoman". I could be talked into voting for either "Charlie's Angels: Full Throttle" or "The Fast and the Furious". While I love a stupid movie....some of these are just painful.

What was that dumb Bill Murray movie that was filmed in Japan. That has to be the worst!

Oh yeah, Species was bad. Too Fast, Too Furious was horrible too. Didn't realize there was a Starship Troopers 2. The first one was quite good if taken as Sci-Fi camp (as intended)and the political message was good too.
