My favorite holiday special hasn't been made yet. I'm praying for a Marcel the Shell with Shoes On holiday edition.

Notes of confusion on the first read give way to a delightful blend of snowclone, Videogum knowledge, and subtle avatar mockery. Coupled with the perfect posting time, Bookface's jest is sure to elevate any Meet Today's Guest Blogger occasion and leaves the reader with a feeling of warm joy for having read the post.

Last night I happened to flip over to TV as Netflix was loading Dr. Who and stumbled across this show. Not knowing anything about modern primetime programming I assumed this was American Idol (people were singing not dancing...my mistake, obvs). My thoughts at the time were, "This guy is definitely not going to the next round. Extremely poor lip synching, the backup dancers have better stage presence, and he choose to wear some weird kind of fetish chain." Finding out that this is someone who has acheived an obcene amount of wealth while being a total garbage-human really grinds my gears.

"To experience the ultimate in driving, running, pivoting and jumping pleasure"? Are those really things?

Klassic Diesel. Aren't action movies auto-disqualified 'cause they don't aim high enough to have the failed ambitions needed to be the worst movie of all time?

I am absolutely mesmerized by this gif. After the 5th time watching it trying to figure out what the hell that guy's gesture means (and failing), I noticed a classic "one of these things is not like the other." While everyone is smiling and having a grand ol' time, the large gentleman just to the right of center (no politico) has a decidedly different look on his face. And I'm no Professor Lipsreader here, but I'm pretty sure that guy should be fined by the FCC. There's kids 4 feet away, sir!

Some of the picks round of the HWOMAT seem pretty soft-lob and more about generating site hits than really getting to the heart of the worst movie ever. I think it is safe to say that all the movies (except possibly Amelia) have some type of audience. I nominate the movie Edward as the WMOAT. Qualifications: 1. Transposing mediums (theatre play to motion picture) 2. Hates the viewer. Every frame is akin to one shallow pass from a potato peeler over your eyeball. From cinematography, to dialouge, to plotline, I can't think of any audience that would find enjoyment in this film. 3. Story out of context. This was filmed almost 20 years after the play came out so any message it may have held originally has been horribly, horribly displaced. 4. Trys to make a point and fails miserably. Possibly related to reason #3 but I'm pretty sure this story barely had a premise when it was written and is now completely rendered moot. 5. Limited theatrical release in the USA 6. Suckers you into watching it. Loaded with A-listers, but with William Macy and Julia Stiles on the cover and the lettering give credit to the idea that this will be some edgy, psychological thriller This abomination should have the Mr. Yuck sticker on the cover instead. 7. Ruins lives. After watching this movie, my friends would avert their eyes when speaking to me and to this day I must pre-watch any movie and provide links to two favorable reviews before any of my movie night recommendations are considered.
