What's the worst piece of media you've ever seen/read (that you love regardless)?

Recommended Posts

Basically, what's one piece of media you like that, quality-wise, just straight up sucks?

 

I got the idea for this thread after binge-watching Alpha and Omega (2010)...and five and a half of its SEVEN sequels. Oh my god. I am utterly captivated by that god-awful franchise. The original movie is the best of them by a solid margin (which doesn't say much imo), but the sequels are uhhhhhhh not good! I mean, I didn't particularly expect the straight-to-dvd sequel of a pretty subpar animated movie for kids to be good as far as quality is concerned, let alone SEVEN of them (one of which involves a literal dinosaur coming back to life. Dude, I WISH i was joking. It also has several out of place musical bits that end up being plot relevant??? okay???).

 

I think what keeps me on the hook are the premise, the worldbuilding, and the persistent thought that I, a schmuck, can tell a story better than this. I love this franchise in part because I love to hate it and in part because it's just inexplicably fascinating to me.

 

Now it's your turn to drag a beloved piece of media through the mud! Show me whatcha got!

Definitely the Twilight franchise. The movies never fail to make me laugh, so when I'm having a rough day I will sometimes put one on just to have a giggle at the silly dialogue and the weird acting. And that creepy CG baby! It cracks me up every time.

Oh sweet god I LOVE the CG baby for that reason specifically 🤣

Honestly Hetalia is the absolute worst, cringiest, dumbass thing I have ever seen that I'm absolutely obsessed with because it's adorable and funny and cute regardless hahaha

A TV series called 1000 Ways to Die. The CGI is just bearable, the acting is atrocious, the plots are unbelievable, the humour is flat. But what can I say, I like the premise. It's a creative ensemble of different human deaths, whether that be swept into a fan, or someone just bent over too much.

Oh my god I remember one episode where [spoiler=NSFW Episode]A girl was masturbating with a cucumber or carrot with something and she died from that but the entire episode was just clearly a gigantic shitpost with dancing vegetables and puns and I couldn't stop laughing because they know it was just made up and were making it over the top a shitpost

The show is good for entertainment value, but it shouldn't be taken seriously to any capacity.

 

On a related note My Strange Addiction takes advantage of people with pica and makes fun of them in public light, it's pathetic really. Pica is a serious condition.

That show was part of my childhood. No kidding. Spike was one of my favorite channels (while CN was super edgy).

Puppet dude. It's a Piggy inspired game and lots of people just shit on it, it's not that bad but it's not the best either. Still really fun though, stories kind of boring though. The models are funky, but their not to bad. I use to be obsessed with this game.

 

Not even really sure if game's counts.

 

 

Also, Puppet combo. They make indie horror games, few examples are Baby Sitter Blood Bath, Murder house, Christmas massacre, etc. I love horror as most know, and indie games are 2nd on my list for best kinds of horror games. Games like Piggy are the top.

 

They aren't scary (either way I like horror games for their sometimes storyline, models, blood, eerie or just the normal ol atmospheres, and weapons. Not for the actual "scary stuff" lmao.) but still sick anyway.

I loved Alpha and Omega when I was younger, don't remember how old but eh. I actually didn't think it was bad back then (duh) but now I understand why people think that lmao.

Hunger Games is not that great, in all of the dumb, dumb decisions Katniss makes, but I still love the series itself. Twilight because it's old and the super speed effects are just so bad, but the books and the movies are really good regardless.

But even the most dreadful night is followed by the dawn

Dervish: Dino Squad, it's a 4kids cartoon from the 2000s about tenagers who can turn into dinosaurs and it's dumb as hell and makes no sense, but it's so good

 

the main villain is a million year old velociraptor turned into a human named "Victor Veloci" who's trying to turn every human into a dinosaur

 

the theme song is a bop

 

 

all the episodes are on youtube
