I watched Year One with Jack Black about a week or so ago...it was absolute torture. I'd of turned it off if not for my OH.

The DVD trailers are much better than the stories themselves. Here's the one for The Ark and another for Four to Doomsday...

Actually, I've had an idea for a thread... :)


I thought "The Ark" had some good ideas, but that the execution was poor.

Agreed. And Four to Doomsday royally screwed over the scripting of the regular cast, and their performances didn't help at all. The Doctor was patronising and abrupt to his companions, Adric was misogynistic and stupid, and Tegan was reduced to a sobbing histrionic. *sigh* And other elements of that story, while nice, didn't quite work.

Actually, I think Kubrick badly screwed up with A Clockwork Orange.

Again, not a movie, but I recently watched another Doctor Who to add to the 'abysmal' pile: The Twin Dilemma. I tried to watch it without prejudice, and hoped that its reputation as the worst Doctor Who ever was hyperbole from pissed fans. I was pretty much wrong. Not the worst story ever, but it pretty much ties with every other bad story I've watched.
