Is funny games the worst movie ever made?
« on: October 01, 2008, 10:39:56 PM »
No hyperbole, this is the single worst movie I have ever seen. For extra credit it contains, without a doubt, the stupidest scene ever put on film. When for no reason out of the blue it turns momentarily into a science fiction film and he can rewind time with the remote control. Here are my top five worst scenes in this movie:

1) rewinds time
2) 2 minutes scene showing greenhouse for no reason
3) 8 minute scene showing woman trying to stand up
4) they cannot escape from their own house nor open their own gate for some unknown reason.
5) 4 minute scene showing him trying to dry phone


I know art is subjective, but can anyone make any kind of argument that this is anything but a terrible terrible piece of garbage?

Lol. I haven't seen it, but I think I'll avoid it. It just sounds annoying :)

edit: omg, I just check to see if it was on my list. It's in the mail right now. I guess I will be watching it haha.

The point of the film is to not like it. And to make you angry and disgusted. Mission Accomplished.

And something about the way that Hollywood portrays violence. Something like that, anyway.

I was not angry or disgusted by the violence. I was angry and disgusted by the horrible plodding storyline, terrible cinematography, laughably bad editing and all around poor film making.


I will say Naomi Watts is good in the film. The only redeeming part of the film.

Lol, I got this subtle little part of the film within about 15minutes.

I found no problems with any of the things you had a problem with. I'm sorry that you didn't "enjoy" your experience.

It's also made pretty much explicit in the film's last scene.

This is a very good film.  Haneke got to you.   ;)  God, I love Watts.

Take an Ambien and/or call your Mommy.  You will be ok.

Someone please explain the rewind scene. It is the most random out of context scene in movie history.
