What are the twenty-five worst movies of all time, according to voters at RiffTrax, the website run by Mystery Science Theater 3000 alumni who sell jokey audio tracks you can play over bad movies to make them more tolerable? The answers may surprise you...
...Well, probably not. Most of them are pretty obvious, especially when you consider that people were being given a list to vote from. The biggest surprise is that certain movies didn't place higher, but that may be the result of an awful lot of people voting for movies made more recently--it's easier to hold a grudge if you paid $16 to see a stinker in 3-D.
Three of the top five movies on the list are comic book films, with other genre flicks like Twilight, Star Wars and Transformers making the list a little further down. Other comic book adaptations come in the form of Catwoman, Son of the Mask and X-Men: The Last Stand.

Now, sure--"The Twilight Saga" isn't actually a movie. But it's a series of movies that tell one ongoing story that's harder to break up than, say, the Marvel Comics films or anything this side of Tolkien. None of them really tells a complete tale without the rest so we'll let it slide.
