Is it humanly possible to watch Gigli and Battlefield Earth back-to-back?


Is this a tech site or not?

Awful movies:

Swordfish - Yeah, encryption can be broken by randomly smashing a keyboard. And viri coded without one.

Alien 3. Obviously.

The Net. Less said the better. Desperate attempt to cash in on this new, popular "information superhighway" thing.

Truly awful movies:

Hackers - pile of screaming dog turd. Was given it on DVD. Put it on again last week for only the second time in 15 years.... it lasted less then 10minutes.

Alien Resurrection. Same reasons.

Devils Bridge. The g/f found this in a charity shop. Its supposed to be 'Southern Comfort' in Wales. Its 90minutes (?) of terrible trash. Which is a shame, as the basic premise isn't too bad.

Zombiefied. From the same shop. It lasted less than 5 minutes before being thrown into the log burner.

However, a thumbs up for Wargames (mainly as it was aimed at kids). Overlooking the problem of displaying vector graphics on a bitmap screen, and the slight incompatibility between asyn and sync comms protocols, they did get a few things right. Heck, the film spawned the terms 'war-dialling' and 'war-driving'.
