Worst movies? try the re-runs and re-runs of the recycled movies on SA's TV channels

You surely have to include all the recycled movies that follow a none-too-subtle path from m.net to sabc-3 and then to sabc-2 or sabc-1. In some respects MNet/ Multichoice appears to be a cosy and monopolistic preferred- provider to SABC-TV.
 
The consumer protection act should be used to make public this practice (SABC and MNet) and so inform viewers of EXACTLY how much viewing time is consumed by their marketting of movies (those long so-called behind-the-scenes doccies that are just blatant extended advertising of movies - even these are often re-runs of re-runs), all other advertising, re-runs of shows and movies; when the movie in question was last shown even if years ago, etc etc., and so expose the amount of time that is actually devoted to new material. I suspect that the latter may be very surprising (to those who pay licence and subscription fees).

After 45 minutes, we were up & out  - Platteland – what a waste.

The story line is so predictable & the acting weak – and that singing, singing, singing……

Sucker Punch was awesome. Clearly you can't find the depth in the movie and clearly you don't know what you're talking about. You try direct a kick ass movie.

New Year's Eve by far! Complete disappointment and so embarrassing for actors of that calibre to appear in such a lame movie.

Took out Passion Play on DVD starring Bill Murray, Megan Fox and Mickey Rourke. Biggest load of drivel EVER! An insult to the viewer who has to believe megans character was born with real eagles wings and then at the end she flies with them and even carries the overweight, grotesque mickey rourke in her arms!

    Hilarious. You go watch a musical and then complain about the "singing, singing singing"!
