Bad movies have become something of an art form, but these flicks have zero redeeming qualities. Welcome to WatchMojo.com and today we’re counting down our picks for the Top 10 worst movies of all time - throughout the decades.

Though we’ve made a similar list in the past, our “worst movie by decade” series has reminded us just how awful some of these entries are - therefore, we decided to make this one. So brace yourself because this isn’t going to be pretty.

#10: “The Last Airbender” (2010)
Good old M. Night Shyamalan inevitably makes a strong appearance here. If you thought “After Earth” was gonna make our list… well, you were close. But have you subjected yourself to this insanity? If you ever wanted to see a human explode with rage, ask an “Avatar” fan about this adaptation of the beloved TV-show. Very few critics or fans have been able to find one redeeming quality about this disaster. What we get here are racially mismatched characters, mispronounced character names, and a convoluted plot that proves that not all animated material, especially a season’s worth of episodes, should be squeezed into a live action film.

#9: “The Garbage Pail Kids Movie” (1987)
We still live in a Hollywood that can turn any product into a film, and while sometimes it works, such as with “The Lego Movie,” sometimes it doesn’t. “Battleship,” anyone? And sometimes, you just try to imagine what the pitch meeting for some ideas looked like and if everyone was either asleep or drunk when they green lit certain things. The Garbage Pail Kids were a brilliant and popular trading card series parodying Cabbage Patch Kids dolls, but its film adaptation turned them into nightmare creatures. With terrible effects that make them unwatchable and gross-out humor that won’t even make children laugh, this film’s cult status is hard to swallow.

#8: “King Kong Lives” [aka “King Kong: Part II”] (1986)
While the 1976 remake was a box office success, this “sequel” falls short on every level. How can a “King Kong” movie be so boring? The plot revolves around the scientists that have been keeping Kong alive while he’s in a coma after the monster fell off the Twin Towers. They give him an artificial heart, and find a female Kong to give him a blood transfusion to save his life. Though it’s not meant to be a comedy, “King Kong Lives” is laughable for all the wrong reasons. The 1933 original had better special effects than this!

#7: “Left Behind” (2014)
For all those who went to see this without knowing it was about Christians going to heaven, and instead thought it was an action-packed Nicolas Cage apocalyptic thriller, we hope you asked for your money back. Well, it’s not like anybody saw this movie anyway. For the millions of you who’ve never even heard of this, “Left Behind” is meant to represent how bad it will get when the Rapture comes, and all the non-believers are…you know…left behind. Except we don’t get to see the end of world! Instead we get 110 minutes of confused people panicking, and a very subdued Nicolas Cage. Lame.

#6: “Alone in the Dark” (2005)
Especially known for his video game adaptations, Uwe Boll has built a reputation for directing some of the worst movies of all time, with most of his productions becoming critical and box office disasters. He also doesn’t care what you think. Although “House of the Dead” deserves a special mention, it’s his other video game adaptation that is our runner-up. In “Alone in the Dark,” Christian Slater uses his special powers to chase after these demonic creatures that used to be worshiped by an extinct civilization. And it. Is. Epically bad.

#5: “Highlander II: The Quickening” (1991)
Our runner-up is so notoriously hated by “Highlander” fans that the filmmakers have tried to recut it over the years multiple times. Call that a major apology. The film is riddled with so many continuity errors, no logical connection to the previous film, and countless awkward comedic moments featuring Sean Connery that we forget we are supposed to be watching a sci-fi action flick about immortals chasing each other through time. It’s like seeing Gandalf stopping to get a makeover. The director himself walked out after the first 15 minutes of the premiere. And they expected us to watch it?

#4: “Jaws: The Revenge” (1987)
In a world with Sharknadoes and mutant piranhas, this movie is somehow the most laughable underwater monster movie – well, at least it was in the ‘80s. Another franchise shot dead in the water, this fourth “Jaws” film asks the question that was on everybody’s minds: what if sharks can hold grudges and somehow stalk a family across a country? This boring sequel expects us to believe that this shark wants revenge on the Brody family for killing the original Jaws, and swims from New York to the Bahamas, looking boring and mechanical the whole way. And to think… Michael Caine missed out on accepting his Oscar for “Hannah and Her Sisters” in order to shoot this disaster.

#3: “Mortal Kombat: Annihilation” (1997)
Not that the original film was a classic or anything, but it was at least guilty-pleasure fun. There is so much b-movie straight-to-video terribleness in the sequel that people were confused when they went to the movie theater. Denounced by “Mortal Kombat” co-creator Ed Boon, the video game adaptation was one of the worst reviewed films of all time. Starring another Caucasian portraying Lord Raiden, and more white-washing than laundry day after a clan rally, “Annihilation”’s terrible acting, script, effects, and completely boring fight sequences make us wish they would just finish us already. At least the planned sequel was cancelled.

#2: “Jack and Jill” (2011)
The final degrading and incomprehensible performance of the decade (so far) goes to Al Pacino. We honestly hope he fired his agents after this one, and we are certain he still has nightmares about Adam Sandler. What with “Grown Ups 2,” “The Ridiculous 6,” and other alleged comedies, we’re concerned that Sandler is either pranking us or he has lost his mind. However, the Sandler produced film with the aforementioned horrendous Pacino performance and our top pick is “Jack and Jill”. Also starring Sandler in both titular roles, the movie has absolutely no plot, and was just an excuse for him to dress up as the ugliest woman since Mrs. Doubtfire, as well as make fart jokes. The movie’s record-breaking Razzie wins – in which it took home awards for every category available – as well as its very negative reception more than back all this up.

Before we reveal our top pick, here are a few honorable, or in this case dishonorable, mentions:

“Leonard Part 6” (1987)

“MAC and Me” (1988)

“Baby Geniuses” (1999)

“Disaster Movie” (2008)

“Gigli” (2003)


#1: “Battlefield Earth” (2000)
Many of our entries can be seen as career-killers, but “Battlefield Earth” brought John Travolta to an all-time low. Although most actors are forced to take these steps-down for a paycheck, Travolta spent years bringing this movie to the world, claiming its source material was better than “Star Wars.” Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, wrote the book in an attempt to bring the religion to younger audiences, and that book serves as the basis of the sci-fi action flick. Needless to say, the world wasn’t interested. When the most horrible acting you’ve ever seen is topped by camerawork that will give you a cramp in the neck, it’s not surprising that you have a recipe for unintentional hilarity. Battlefield Earth could perhaps be the worst movie of all time.
