The worst films of all timeby Andy Scott | created - 02 Feb 2011 | updated - 1 month ago | Public
All films on this list I have rated 4/10 or lower. The low ratings are given because of their quality, not for the entertainment value. There are many films on this list I have really enjoyed and even watched multiple times, but they are all terribly made. I won't tell you which films I think are 'so bad, they're good' because it's subjective and because of spite.
