The Worst of the Worst at Rotten Tomatoes

When it comes to sites that aggregate reviews I usually prefer Metacritic to Rotten Tomatoes but the latter site has a new feature that I couldn’t resist linking to.

They have decided to create a list of the “worst of the worst” – a ghoulish but strangely captivating compilation of bad films that stunk up your local multiplex.

Jeff Giles of RT explains:

With the trusty Tomatometer as our guide, we’ve plowed through 100 of the rankest, foulest, most misbegotten movies to hit the multiplex in recent memory. But bad films can often be their own reward; whether you’re looking for a howlingly bad time, or just looking for a list of what not to watch, ever, we’re here to help.

We’ve got the worst of some of Hollywood’s best (Robert DeNiro, Forest Whitaker, Halle Berry, and Diane Keaton all make appearances). We’ve got movies that were considered so toxic by studios that they weren’t screened for critics (“Stay Alive,” “Epic Movie”). We’ve got two “Baby Geniuses” and three Uwe Boll flicks. Heck, you know these movies must be bad if “Catwoman” ranks a lofty number 100.

The list starts here.
