The Top 20 Most Boring Films of All Time

Top 20 most boring films

‘50 Shades of Grey’ (2015), ‘The Blair Witch Project’ (1999) and ‘Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace’ (1999) have been named as three of the most snooze inducing films of all time, according to a new study.

Although this particular study is one that is raising a few eyebrows with me personally. 50 Shades albeit a handcuff funfest wasn’t what you would call boring, similar to Then Phantom Menance. Neither of them were ‘boring’ actually both contained a lot of action (wink, wink) but they just weren’t good films as a whole. So whilst i’m a little puzzled by some of the choices I can’t argue with the 34% of the British people asked said it was the most boring movie ever made. I’m pretty sure a pub full of drunken middle aged men were asked, fed up by their wives constantly playing the movie over and over again in order to spice up a fading love life.

The shortlist of films was collated by an expert panel of leading film journalists and put to a national vote of 2,000 British adults (those aforementioned drunken middle aged men, I assume). 

 The research was specially commissioned by Samsung Quick Drive™ to mark the launch of Washing Machine: The Movie’, a world-first, which sees a washing machine cycle turned into slow cinematic masterpiece. The film will receive its world premiere in London tonight. The unique project sees art meet technology to launch Samsung’s QuickDrive™, a washing machine which uts laundry time in HALF1 – without compromising performance.
