Alright, here’s the deal: I’m out of my swanky blogging office until Monday.

In the meantime, Reader’s Choice is back, but with a new theme this time around: worst movies ever. What can I say? After the punishing week I’ve had, I’m feeling exceptionally masochistic.

November 1 is the date I’m shooting for to start all this, so spread the word and hop on board. All you have to do is drop me a comment here with the movies you think are the worst EVER and I’ll queue ’em up and gladly sit through them.

I may need a crash helmet, a mouthguard and pharmaceuticals to make it through all this, but you never know.

EDIT: Here are the list of movies so far:

  • Ax’Em
  • Midnight Skater
  • Camp Slaughter
  • Grizzly Rage
  • The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie
  • Manos: Hands of Fate
  • The Wicker Man
  • Win a Date with Tad Hamilton
  • Emma
  • Armageddon
  • The Fast and the Furious
  • 10,000 BC
  • BMX Bandits
  • Alien vs. Predator
  • Domino
  • Gigli
  • I Know Who Killed Me
  • Planet of the Apes (Remake)
  • The Number 23
  • 88 Minutes
  • Meet The Spartans
  • Untraceable
  • Jack Frost 2
  • Fear of Clowns
  • Roger Corman’s Fantastic Four
  • Superman 3
  • Superman 4 (Ed. Note: There was a Superman 4?!)
  • Leonard Part 6
  • Adam & Evil
  • Rodentz
  • Santa’s Slay
  • Bratz: The Movie
  • Super Sweet 16: The Movie
  • Troll 2
  • House of the Dead
  • Alone In The Dark


  • Glitter
  • Captain America (1990)
  • Comanche Blanco
  • The Punisher (Dolph Lundgren version)
  • Just My Luck
  • Eragon
  • Begotten
  • The Wedding Date

HOLY SHIT, YOU GUYS! I am blown away.

You’ve got until November 1, so keep submitting. If you’re wondering how I’m planning on getting through all that, well, I’ll just chain myself to my computer and upgrade my Netflix plan.

And just for fun: whoever submits the movie I deem the worst gets a prize. What kind of prize, I don’t know, but you’ll get something. Like, something Caitlin has to mail to you.

Suck It, Oliver Stone

I don’t like Oliver Stone’s movies in the first place. It’s enough to make a girl rip her hair out. There’s time for exposition on that later.   With W. coming out, my dislike has reached new, unheard of levels for this man.

I’m sure Josh Brolin is going to be a phenomenal Bush. I’m sure everyone else will do a bang-up job.

However, for your consideration: I live and grew up in Texas.  George Bush was governor of Texas before he was president and all this stuff Stone is covering in W. is old hat. I’ve heard it all before and time and time again.

Think further on the fact that I’m 23 years old. George Bush was elected governor of my state in 1994. I was nine years old. I have had fourteen years of constant press coverage on George Bush and you know what? I’m really sick of hearing about him – period, end of story. I’m completely leaving my political beliefs out of this. Just from the sole point of having to read or hear about him consistently for a majority of my life has me burned the hell out.

So I’m not entirely sympathetic to Stone promoting a Bush movie before he even has time to vacate the White House. I was looking forward to a blissful period in which Bush would pack his shit up and leave and go back to the ranch in Crawford, happy to while away his days in privacy.  Then we would at least wait a couple years before the movies and books and god knows what else came streaming out.

If Alexander wasn’t enough torture for me, this one just pushes me over the edge.
