Making the fire people brown people is certainly a bad move (I think they are the villains in this story).

However, worst movie that you have seen? I suspect you just had very high expectations from the animated series.

I watched the cartoon at 36. It's aimed at kids, sure, but it's a pretty good series overall.

Of course, having Mick Foley voice a one shot braggadocious "fighter" named The Boulder was just perfect.

The Boulder does return to do what The Boulder does best. Talk about The Boulder in the third person...

Also, TLA the movie is definitely up there as the worst movie ever. Not only does it completely spit in the face of anything to do with the original series, but the acting is wooden and the CGI is awful.

Yes, he plays Uncle Iroh. Uncle Iroh is amazing.

Uncle Iroh is a lusty pervert. He groped Jun the bounty huntress woman when she was paralyzed by her own pet! Groped her. Zuko and Azula are right: His Royal Tea-Loving Kookiness is a crazy old pervert man.

He's a flawed character, and that was a disappointment and a failure of his character. Much like all other characters on Avatar, he's nuanced and complex and isn't a purely good person.

And nothing else.

Can you please explain what the problem was?

Also - insert my "you really need to watch more bad films if that was the worst" statements.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians but I don't think it really counts since I watched it after seeing it at the top of a "worst movies" list. It was pretty bad tbqh.

Ah ah so you saw it at the top of that list and decided to watch it? Was there some motive other than try to win the thread? Alas I don't think we have defined the winning conditions for this game.

Does he conquer their hearts and make them good kids? Do they call him out on not giving them stuff on christmases before?

I enjoy a good terrible movie from time to time. Like, I can say Next is really one of the worst films I've seen in the cinema, but I thoroughly enjoyed watching it. On the other hand Cars is one of the very few movies I actually walked out on because it was so bad.

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians is mostly hampered by having a budget of like five dollars, plus the standard-issue B-movie Odious Comic Relief. But it's at least kind of endearingly crappy in that school-play sort of way.

I watched it years ago, way before I joined the forum.

I think even if the cartoon didn't exist at all, this would still be considered a really awful movie. The fact that it is also a bastardization of a really excellent media certainly adds insult to injury, but it's still a bad movie in terms of plot, characterization, acting, pacing, special effects... pretty much every metric of filmmaking there is.

Kill Bill: Volumes One and Two were... like violence pornography. Discussion of details why re: worst film you've/I've seen in spoilers.

Spoiler:
Beatrix just gets abused by men for no reason. Men shoot her while she pregnant, beat her up, r*** her and... she just gets through ALL of it every time? She's like super human durable, she can fight over eighty crazed gangsters at a time... how she do that yo? AND Elle is just sadistic and cruel, killing her own partners and some monk guy who was Beatrix's master once JUST because he was mean to her at dinnertime? And the assassins, I know they paid to be lethal snakelike women and men yet: Why can't they ever, ever be nice to each other? And Bill is heartless, he chases B all over America, Japan... and other places... he never forgives her for making him think she's dead WHEN HE was the one that shot her so. Elle puts snakes in Budd's briefcase to double-cross him and steal B's Hanzo sword.

I just wish that... Bill woulda forgave B for leaving him, it's not her fault she pregnant, no woman ever chooses to get knocked up outside of very specific, commonly fertility related reasons, or wanna settle down and. SHE, Beatrix, wanna settle down so: LET HER GO BILL. She's not your trainee girl anymore, Pai Mai taught her more than you ever did anyways, and he not even an assassin except... when people don't nod back re: respecting his authority. ANYWAYS: Bill needs to leave a woman alone, forever, stop chasing her w/all his ppls and. That assassin team needs to be disbanded, or turn into a charity call girls' services, or something. It was just a parade of tragedy, after scandal, after injustices and... worst film you've/I've seen recently.
