    This ought to be fun. State the most ridiculous moment you have ever witnessed in a film. It can be anything: a single shot, a full scene, an entire act, some dialogue... Anything! I'll start:

    The exploding palm trees in shitfest The Crow: City of Angels. The camera follows a CGI(?) crow flying over palm trees which suddenly explode for no science damn reason.

    Take the plastic bag challenge to cure stupidity.

    All of Prometheus and LotR.

    Both of them are perfectly executed from a technical standpoint, but with a ridiculous script.

    The fact that every woman on the planet watches Twilight and thinks that a guy creeping through your window at night and hiding in the corner of the room while watching you sleep is in no way sinister, but romantic somehow.

    They soon change their mind if you do it though.

    Virginity and all that is it not. Don't bite me means don't have sex etc. I'm pure but the temptation is so strong. Women must love chastity and the almost feeling.

    New Years Eve. Had to give up 15 mins in. It was ridiculous but don't want to remember why.

    All of Avatar. (Big Sigourney fan but this film was a massive disappointment).
    All of Predator 2.
    And even though I've not seen it the new Bourne film can do one.
    And to piss of the Bladerunner fans once again, it's shit, all of it, artsy fartsy shit.
    Hating on Bladerunner is like hating on Jaffa Cakes. It is like basically stating you have some kind developmental issue which means your judgement is fatally flawed.

    The second half of Hancock. It's like someone ran out of ham halfway through making a sandwich and decided to use their own shit to finish the other half.

    Are you getting 'boring' and 'ridiculous' mixed up again, Billy?

    Cubby didn't know how to turn off sigs!

    So, Billy has just named some films he didn't like, including one he hasn't seen? Well done Billy.

    Basically yes. I don't see how being at the original screening is relevant to anything either, it just means you've been wrong for longer than most.

    For an actual particular moment (rather than half a film) I'd have to go for the Han and Greedo 'who shot first?' bit in Star Wars. Not for the actual moment in it's original format, but the endless fucking about that has been done with it over various cuts and releases over the years.

    The Resident Evil films. I'm one of the reasons they keep making them.

    Indiana jones and the magical mystery submarine tour.

    Love the films but the series is peppered with out of the blue madness. Which made me find the reaction to kocs amusing.

    Nearly all of Batman and Robin but if I had to pick the worst part I'd go with the bat mastercard or whatever it was.

    Although, thinking about it, the bit where they pop blades out of their boots and have an impromptu ice hockey match is all kinds of animated G.I Joe ridiculousness.

    Calling Bladerunner "arty fartsy" makes you out to be a bit simple, regardless of if you thought it was any good. Apparently not understand the word ridiculous doesn't do you any favours, either.

    But on topic, any film or TV show ever that does that "zoom in and magically enhance the picture so the pixels go away" thing, or demonstrating someone hacking in to a computer by typing REALLY FAST. Yup, that's how you overcome a firewall, type so fast it can't stop you.

    Cologne Cathedral CGI'd into aerial shot of Frankfurt train station in the A-Team movie. Why go through the effort? What was the point?

    That's not as bad as the bit where the JSF pilot decides to hold fire till he can see the whites of Willis' eyes.

    No idea what you people are talking about. There have only ever been two Die Hard movies: the Alan Rickman one, and the Jeremy Irons one.

    That said, I rather like Predator 2.


    I have to agree that the virus scene in Independence Day took unbelievability to new depths of stupidity.
