I haven't bothered to see it yet, but I hear Transformers 3 is pretty painful to watch.
You're sick, if you've seen more than just the first Transformers. The point where it becomes completely obvious that the director has no fucking idea what a Transformer is.
Well, Mr. Bay, I'll give you a hint it's not fucking Meagan Fox, either literally or metaphorically.
I was going to mention Highlander 3 as well, then I remembered how horrible Highlander 2: The Quickening was. To this day I have to pretend that movie never existed because it is so... well there are no words. One of the worst movies ever made. It is up there with Zardox.
At least with Zardoz, you can laugh about how awful it is. With Highlander 2, you can only cry...
It's interesting that both movies feature Sean Connery though (and in that connection one should probably also mention Sword of the Valiant). For me, those movies illustrate what seems to me to be a major difference between British and American actors.
The British approach to acting appears to be something like: "I'm an actor. Acting is my job. If you have a part for me, I'll happily accept it, and will act it to the best of my ability, regardless of how big a picture it is."
The American approach seems more like "I'm a star, who happens to be an actor. If you have a part for me, I may take it, if I think it's high-profile enough to benefit my career, and if my agent thinks it's a good idea. Of course, my name will have to be written pretty large on the poster, and you'd better have a huge paycheck ready for me."
This is naturally a gross generalization, but I do feel that British actors are generally not nearly as picky about the parts they accept as American actors are.
There's probably 30 or 40 times as many American actors as British actors. And being a big actor in Britain is a much lesser deal. If you make it big in the US, you're probably going to be known worldwide within a couple years. Not to mention the fact that a start can bring in so much money that the studios have to kiss ass to keep them signed.
I think the psychologists were going to create a personality disorder for that, not sure if they ever formally decided to do so.
