Well having read the graphic novel shortly before the movie came out, I had a hard time noticing much other than that's not how that's supposed to be, no that's not the origin of Mina's powers, etc. etc. to notice much else about the movie.  They really could have slapped any other name on it, with as much as was changed from the original story.

And again Hyde was horrible.  It looked like they did a cheaper crappier version of Popeye's arms from the Robin Williams movie.

League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was the first movie I ever walked out of.  Next to Stealth, that was the worst movie in existance.

haha Stealth.  A little before my friends and I walked out, my friend Eli shouted, at the quietest moment in the movie, "This movie SUCKS!"
hahaha.  good times, goooood times.
meh but then we walked out of that, and into frickin The Dukes of Hazzard, which was ending, and that was even worse, so we walked back into Stealth, stayed about 2 minutes, decided it was just as crappy, and walked out of the movies altogether

The League of Extraordinarily Crappy Gentlemen would probably have been okay if you had never seen/heard anything at all about the graphic novel.  Though there was no saving how crappy Hyde looked no matter what. 

Up there in worst movies ever is S(t)upernova 

Oh, dear God, I'd almost forgotten about Supernova.  Yes, that was actually worse than LXG.  Which was awful, and I purposefully didn't read the graphic novel before I saw it.  While we're at it, I'll throw in Mission to Mars as a terrible waste of time.

Stupornova was closest I have come to walking out of a theater I think.  I am glad that a friend bought the tickets for it.  If I had driven and paid for the movie, I think I most likely would have walked out.  Can't remember if I saw Mission to Mars or not.  I might be confusing it with Red Planet.  One I am thinking of had Val Kilmer in it.  It was soso from what I remember, I haven't seen it since it hit the theaters so...

Val Kilmer was in Red Planet.  That movie wasn't really good either, but it wasn't as horrendous as Mission to Mars IMO.


Hmmmm.  Maybe we should have a worst ever film poll, too Smiley

But where does Plan 9 from Outer Space go?  It' one of those so bad it's good cult classics.  I think part of what makes Ed Wood movies even funnier/better is how earnestly he took himself as a film maker/director.

   See, now, I liked Red Planet quite a bit.

(I'll get my coat Smiley)

   The science is wonky but that's nothing new and in terms of sheer value for plot money (Life on other worlds/spaceship disaster/psycho killer/run from the killer robot AND save the planet) it's actually pretty fun.

   Also, any movie with an AI that understands the nuances of human conversation is okay in my book.  Witness:

Bowman:  This isn't good.
Computer:  No, it's not.
