"Fun"? What's This "Fun"?

Come on guys and girls of Steem, lighten up a bit and join the monthly contest that has been going for nearly a year now - @yourtop3!

I get it, the whole crypto world is looking at what is happening over here with DPoS governance but let's also show them that we can still have some fun as well!

Time to channel that energy and write about (or slate) your least 3 favourite movies, enjoy some banter with the panel organisers, meet new friends, have a chance to earn some SBD at the end of the month and get a little reward for your engagement and effort in the process 😉

You in?

Formalities

So, let's get the formalities of the contest rules out of the way first and then we can laugh at applaud my choices for this month's topic of Least Favourite Movies!

Here is how you enter as per our official blog:

1 - Create a blog post with your top 3 nominations along with your reasoning behind them. Entry posts must have a minimum of 250 words total. You must use the #yourtop3 tag in the first five tags.

2 - Put a link to your blog in the comments section below.

3 - Set your post payout to 50/50. You keep the SP and then transfer the STEEM or SBD (whichever is paid out at the time) to @yourtop3 with a link to your blog post entry in the transfer memo. This is the minimum entry fee, but you can add as much as you like to it! The more you add, the more you can win. There is no maximum entry fee.

The deadline for submitting is the 9th of March 2020

With our contest mascot, Q, giving out a helping hand or two, we're all looking forward to seeing some more entries from you guys and girls coming in!

However, because I'm one of the contest organisers, Q has strictly forbidden me, @plantstoplanks, @foxyspirit and @cheese4ead to actually enter the contest ourselves so all the liquid part of our post payouts will be added to the prize pool and you can rip into our choices as much as you want - Q hasn't forbidden that at least haha!

For the full contest information, swing by our Discord and feel free to ask any questions along the way! Oh, did I mention... HAVE FUN!

Least 3 Favourite Movies

Ok, so I'm going to channel my angst of recent events into these descriptions of my least favourite films and see how good it feels once vented! I'd imagine my whole DVD collection could make this list seeing as there were some real crocks of sh_t up there on the shelves! Even after I sold quite a few to some other clowns on eBay who also appear to like duff movies! I didn't realise it was contagious! Anyway you're welcome for the therapy! Let's go haha!

1 - Love Actually

Thankfully though, I never owned this DVD! If I did, I'd shoot myself right now... please don't send it to me by the way 🤣

I mean, I COULD say EVERY chick flick ever made here but after giving myself mild concussion with trying to decide on one (trying to think about your least favourite films will do that to you!), I've managed to pluck Love Actually out of the blood bath in the vault that was filed under "least favourite" films. Please, I... just... no, keep that yucky romance chick flick crap away from this guy. Love Actually? More like Love Craptually! Ughhh!

I've actually blocked out most of the plot but, for the sake of your entertainment, I am going to have to put myself through the torture of Googling what the plot was...Oh god I just found it:

Nine intertwined stories examine the complexities of the one emotion that connects us all: love. Among the characters explored are David (Hugh Grant), the handsome newly elected British prime minister who falls for a young junior staffer (Martine McCutcheon), Sarah (Laura Linney), and Harry (Alan Rickman), a married man tempted by his attractive new secretary.

Trying not to vomit in to my mouth after reading that back. Why so much hate? Probably because my ex made me watch it when we were both hungover many moons ago and I just wanted to shoot zombies on Call of Duty... either that or I'm allergic to this kind of soppy sh_t - is it ANY wonder then that I'm still single? Probably not 😆

2 - Matrix Reloaded

This was the 2nd of the Matrix Trilogy and frankly, they should have stopped after the first ground breaking film was made. What a royal cock up this one was! It's like they decided to skip the acting part and just said, "We've done our bit in the first film, no need to carry on with that acting stuff here!"

Then that scene with the Architect - WHAT was he actually banging on about in that scene?! You know the one I mean because you would be sitting there in your cinema seat and he'd be throwing words like "Ergo", "Vis-a-vis", "Concordantly"... WHO USES THESE WORDS?!

I left the cinema with my friends and we were all like "sooooo.... did anyone else not have a clue what happened in that scene?" It was so bad that the MTV movie awards made a parody in 2003 with Justin Timberlake and Sean William Scott, which I'd rather have watched instead (and have watched many times) - here is the parody recorded via a potato:

3 - Punisher

If ever you wanted an action film devoid of any thought behind the plot then this is the one for you. It's not even good for hangovers, that's how bad it was. If you miss the all important "opening sequence" of this film, then all you'd think the story line consisted of was a guy going around on a rampage blowing up cars and killing gangs. Apparently, he is seeking revenge of those who killed his family... not even "The Russian" can stop him. Sorry, I ruined the story for you, well... story, ha!

This one went straight to DVD I suspect as I can't imagine this film getting too much screen time - one to miss!

OH YUCK, Matrix Reloaded lol. Nothing worse than making a bad sequel from such an awesome movie. The only time that works, where the sequels or the ones thereafter, ends up being the ones where the sequels are better than the first one and that would be Aliens. Even Aliens vs Predator. Moving on...

Punisher was boring as shit. Even the actor they chose was all wrong. Snore fest. Just made me think of Doom. One of the Rocks bad movies. The more I read these posts of bad movies, the more i feel like I need to edit my post to add a few to the honorary mentions list lol.

Haha, yea really shocking film wasn't it (Matrix Reloaded) and I'll take your word about Aliens as I haven't had the stomach to watch that haha!

LOL, yea it's hard to narrow down to a Top 3 when there are so many good choices! And by good choices, I mean shit choices!

😂

We should get together and watch a few Aliens, I'll hold your hand, you'll get used to those movies after a couple of them :P

There's millions of those films though haha!

No worries! After a bit you'll start getting right into and even laugh.

My kids were watching Jumanji 2 last weekend and there was a part that made the jump... basically guy sort of gets his head bit off by a giant snake, came out of no where. I bursted out laughing. I was the only one.... stick with me and you'll end up gaining that skill for even the demonic moves ;)

Haha, tell me how you really feel Nicky? Note to self: stay away from the chick flicks for future contests. ;) Also, probably shouldn't show you some of my movie collection as there are a few of said movies in there, though no Love Actually, whew. The other two choices are for sure spot on for the Razzies. On to the next steaming piles...

tell me how you really feel Nicky?

If I did that, there'd be a lot more "F" bombs I can tell you 🤣

If Chick Flicks becomes a topic, I'll just have to stick to advertising the contest rather than pick a top 3 haha! Good decision on Love Craptually!

Now, my Top 3 senses are telling me that's a wad of movie manure to investigate in our latest entries, let's see what's going on there!

Haha, there have been quite a few "bombs" of all sorts this month. Happy to see the community rallying around some good fun.

Haha. Nice one mate. How many times do we say snap!! I've just started commenting on other posts after just finishing mine. Great minds think alike, eh? Lol. Looking forward to you reading mine! 😁

Reloaded. What a dog shite eff up that film is. The bottom line is that Zion NEEDS destroying! The end. Haha.

Chick flicks. Yuk. Love Actually. For fans of chick flicks, this movie is like heroine. Garbage.

I haven't watched The Punisher and now I never will!

Nice job mate.

Gaz

Haha Ok, can't wait to see what you've got in store now Gaz!

LOL, if there's one thing to take away from Reloaded it was definitely that about Zion, instead, they have a massive orgy like the MTV Awards clip suggested!

Yea stay away from the Punisher, it was punishING!

Oh damn that punisher was so bad! The only thing worse was the even more low budget reboot where he was shooting parkour peeps with a bazooka!

I still cringe at that whole scene where John trovalta rages and kills his wife it was so lame

I think picking anything with Hugh Grant in it isn’t fair game you know it’s going to be Trash!

Haha I could have picked any Chick Flick and it would have fit snugly in that no 1 spot! It just so happened that I had an aneurysm whilst plucking that one out of the memory banks.

Lucky you though, my nominations aren't valid for the contest so wonder who will pick these bankers 😉

LOL that is true, gosh they are so cringeworthy but enough paying customers seem to love them that they keep grinding them out!

Of late, They’ve basically just taken the Bridget Jones and Nottinghill formulas and then thrown some identity politics in it and boom new movie y’all

Oh God why did you mention those movies?? You're killing me man and I just woke up! Way to ruin my Sunday 😂

We all have things we have to deal with like my English family live across from the lane and support Spurs but I don't let that get me down

I can see why you live way around the world now 😃

Hahaha! I probably would watch Love Actually - even though I think Hugh Grant is a little typecast as the English fop. I'll join @plantstoplanks - I do have a penchant for a good chick flick - like City of Angels or The Bridges of Madison County... I am most certainly with you on the Matrix Reloaded. I loved The Matrix. Reloaded lost me to the genre. Forever. As for Punisher, I have no idea and am not likely to. LOL

Hope you feel better.... ;)

I'm not surprised that you would have an affinity for Chick Flicks... the clue is in the first part of that genre... #justsaying 🤐

Matrix had so much potential to become one of the greatest trilogies, it makes me sad how they just flopped!

Great decision on Punisher, I'll send you a DVD in case you ever get tempted!

I feel fabulous after this post I have to say

🤭🤣

I liked the first matrix movie allot ..... I could do without the sequels. Did you know they plan on making a Matrix 4?

!ENGAGE 25

I did not know that! Got any more goss on this one? Matrix 4 should, in theory, be twice as good as Matrix 2... very difficult to be worse, let's put it that way!

Here's a detailed article that I have only skimmed.

https://www.digitaltrends.com/movies/matrix-4-release-date-news-cast-trailer/

The release date is said to be May 21, 2021 so still some time away yet.

Thanks for that, looks like Keanu and Moss are in it again... might as well make it a trilogy of flops!
