I know what is going to be at the top for damn sure. A certain red and blue spider themed super hero.

Does this really need a two part episode when there are a lot more important things we want bob to talk about?

I still dont get what was so interesting about the scientist in Godzilla, he never did anything more then the other characters and his knowladge and connection to Godzilla was rather basic.

While I also dont think anyone performed bad in Sin City 2, the best performance for me was from Ray Liotta. That movie just didnt seem to go anywhere and didnt know what was trying to tell as opposed to Sin City 1.

Have watched Godzilla twice and i still dont remember how the first MUTO died. Thing is with a character that has 25 movies to his name you dont need to hide him. He was even in full view on the posters and dvd art work. I just wished they didnt cut away from the earlier fights. Granted they can hide it with shaky cam or with dust and debris every where but they should have showed it. It would have made the boring humans part more bearable.

Kevin Smith peaked with his first movie, very bad as then he has nothing to work for.....just like M Night. Great directors like Ridley Scott, James Cameron and Steven Spilberg had to go through many bad movies. That increased their learning of film and made them great when they did peak. I always find it funny when i remember that Steven Spielberg directed the first episode of Columbo.

Wait, Maleficent in the top 10? Sure Robocop, TNMT and Amazing Spider-man 2 I can get but Maleficent isn't that bad!

No I think a statement like that would only jinx us into getting more of his childish vitriol. I'll take a movie list over that any day.

I don't know bob I'm sure I could come up with 20 movies this year that were easily worse than Interstellar. I 100% agree the 3rd act of Interstellar was a bit hodgepodge, but if someone asked me to go see it again today I'd go. The movie is amazing. The "twist" was just poorly executed. In fact what I really loved was the epilogue. I loved how it was treated and how it looked.

I was sitting in a huge IMAX thankfully when I saw it and the flight through the blackhole was worth the price of admission.

From this list of movies, I only saw Godzilla, which I felt similar to Bob. The movie had two vastly more compelling characters played by Cranston and Watanabe, but the audience was saddled with the most painfully generic protagonist making terrible decisions simply to build tension. We even got pulled away from a monster battle in progress during the Hawaii sequence. Cranston's part was emotionally effective story telling, and the climactic battle was awesome, but the middle was just a slog.

What's "more important" that won't cause a massive fire storm in the comments?

I assume if there was it'll probably get over shadowed by something less meaningful but holds more meaning to Movie Bob. So we're never going to get a "In Memory Of Ralph Baer". But hey when that more meaningful thing does happen it'll probably be when Bob is doing another part 2 rant on why he hates Kevin Smith or whatever.

I liked Godzilla and I also liked Monsters which Bob really hated but I agree when cranston just kinds leaves 20 minutes. I was miffed. I paid for a cranston Watanabe combo and felt a little cheated. The kid did his job as a protagonist, but definitely the guy you were rooting for.

Bob seemed to like Maleficent, what makes you think it will be in the top 10 worst movies?

I only assume so because it was not feature in today episode nor was it at the top 10 best films of 2014. If he doesn't show it in next week then I guess it was in the "ok" piles.

If people really want to see bob talk about something else, that's ok. If people want him to talk about THAT hashtag, 1: the comments section would get REALLY ugly, and 2, he's already said his piece on his moviebob blog.

I don't know, Bob just saw God's Not Dead recently, and he wasn't shy about pointing out how horrific it was on Twitter.

Well he did write an article named along the lines of something like "I was wrong about Maleficent", so its possible that it might not show up. He's also mentioned a few others times that it has grown on him a bit, so I don't know it'd end up in the bottom ten, unless he watched it again and went "Nope, that was shit."

Did he title a review "The Movie that Broke Moviebob?" after it? Also considering last year he put Man of Steel at the top and listed it more as a major and biggest disappointment of the year, not necessarily horrible, I think its safe to say The Amazing Spider-man 2 will be at the top.

I don't think Maleficent will show up actually. He gave it a better look than most people did.

"It's gonna get ugly."

Hence the reason I told people to put their heads between their knees and kiss their asses goodbye in the last Big Picture thread. Now I'm even more afraid for my life! So, if you'll excuse me...

My guess for the top worst (in no order)
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
The Amazing Spider-Man 2
Transcendence
Robocop
Divergent
The Fault In Our Stars
Winter's Tale
Any of those shitty Christian movies to come out earlier (Son of God, I Origins, Left Behind, Heaven Is For Real, take your pick)

I'd always heard that Bob has a hate-boner for Nolan, but I had no idea it was this....pronounced.

While Bob is free to have his own opinion, to me this list is laughably inane. I agree that some of the films listed easily deserve being listed, but there were far worse films this year than the other listed titles.

'Course, I tend not to look to Bob for an opinion on film. I rarely see eye-to-eye with him. So I suppose this occasion is no different.

I gotta be honest, I almost turned off the video when Bob opened with Interstellar. That film is one of my favourite thing is a long time and I love it to bits. And not as a guilty pleasure, I genuinely think it's objectively good. I can understand it not being someone's cup of tea, but putting it on a "Worst" list? Nope, you pretty much lose me on the spot. I did end up watching the whole thing, and I didn't object to any of the other entries, but still...
