Incredible performances are hard to come by. Even some great movies are good not because of their cast, but because of their great storytelling. So it's always fun when you get a bad movie with a stellar cast. (Looking at you, Movie 43.)

Besides, most movies are bad. That's just the sad truth of things. We can't all be watching masterpieces like Scooby-Doo 2: Monsters Unleashed every week in the theater. I know, I wish we could too.

But in celebration of bad movies and great actors, we've got a list of some of our favorite performances of all time -- in God awful movies. Like seriously, please don't watch these movies. They're that bad. Like, did you know Eddie Redmayne was in a movie about alien queens? No? Or what about Alan Rickman in a Robin Hood movie? Don't watch it.

What you should do instead is: put on a good movie on Netflix in the background while scrolling through this list on your phone. Win-win!

Martin Freeman, The Hobbit Trilogy

To me, Martin Freeman is even more Bilbo Baggins than Elijah Woods is Frodo Baggins. We're going to say a few times in this article "so-and-so is the only good thing in this movie". That's the whole point. But it might never be more true than in The Hobbit. Over a decade of hype for these movies, and they've mostly been forgotten, but I'll never forget the absolute joy I felt in the theater watching Martin Freeman exclaim, "I'm going on an adventure!"

Dustin Hoffman, Hook

Dustin Hoffman is perfect in everything he's in, with the one exception being Little Fockers. That movie is irredeemable and I don't even want to talk about it. And before you blast me about Robin Williams' performance, he was okay as Peter. But this movie is low-key not as good as people remember. Dustin Hoffman on the other hand, Excellent as Hook. The titular role! The other cool part of this movie? Phil Collins is in the movie.

Michael Fassbender, Prometheus

Please stop making these movies. Or at least let someone else make them for a while. When I was just a boy, and the trailers for Prometheus were rolling out, I was so excited. And then, we got that. Michael Fassbender sure knows how to play a robot.

George Clooney, Batman & Robin

The only thing better than George Clooney's performance in this movie, are the nipples on his costume. There's also a shot in this movie that's just a shot of Batman putting on the, uh, "butt" part of his costume, and it's really well defined for a piece of rubber! Just thought I'd let you know in case you're into that sort of thing. "The Ice Man cometh!"

Thomas Haden Church, Spider-Man 3

I love Spider-Man 3. It's my favorite Spider-Man movie, but it's also undeniably awful. Thomas Haden Church does his best as Sandman, and thankfully doesn't emo-dance down the streets of Brooklyn or cry in a Cathedral. Seriously, how was Spider-Man 2 so good and Spider-Man 3 so bad? This movie also gave us the new trend of, "throw as many villains in as possible to up the stakes," and I hate that trend.

Ewan McGregor, The Star Wars Prequels

You had to know this was coming. The Star Wars Prequels were special. In a bad way. But Ewan McGregor is a perfect, beautiful man and his Obi-Wan Kenobi was spot on, even though he ages like 40 years between Episode III and Episode IV. So it only makes sense that Ewan's character is the only prequel character getting a Disney+ show.

Alan Rickman, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves

Ah, Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves. How can a movie with Kevin Costner, Morgan Freeman, Prime Christian Slater, and Alan Rickman be bad, you ask? Kevin Costner's accent. That's how. Is he British? Is he American? I don't think even Costner himself knows the answer to that. But Alan Rickman is undeniably British and undeniably awesome in this film. You should check it out. It wanders into so-bad-it's-good territory, and you get to enjoy Alan Rickman knocking it out of the park.

Ben Affleck, Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice

Okay, before you crazy Zach Snyder fans fill the comments with, "the movie is actually good if you watch the Director's Cut," I'm not doing that. I already sat through 2 hours and 31 minutes of this film. I'm not going to do it for an extra 32 minutes. It's not happening. This movie is so bad, I almost didn't want to include it, because Batfleck does nothing to help this movie be any better. But he does give us the best Bruce Wayne we've ever had in a Batman movie, so there's that.

Oscar Isacc, Sucker Punch

Zach Snyder back again! When will Hollywood learn... He's not good at his job... But you know who actually is? Oscar freaking Isacc. Put aside that horrible mustache, and Oscar Isacc nails this villain out of the park. I'm convinced that Oscar Isacc could take a literal pile of shit and make it look good. Because that's kind of what he did for Sucker Punch.

Seth Rogen, Billy Eichner, John Oliver, The Lion King

Man, oh man, what a disappointment. My most hyped movie of 2019. When will I learn? All Disney live-action remakes are bad. The Lion King was no exception. Everything about it was just so... bland. But at least these three heroes brought something fresh and new to what was basically just a copy-cat of a movie. I actually had a good time with Timone, Pumba, and Zazu. And I can't really say that about anyone else.

Millie Bobby Brown, Godzilla: King of the Monsters

Who doesn't love Millie Bobby Brown? In this movie, she's the only person who even tries to give a realistic performance, and likewise, her character is the only one in the movie with rational thoughts. Some guy literally walks a nuclear bomb into Godzilla's lair to wake him up. Who thought of that and why don't they go try it themselves.

Sandra Bullock, Bird Box

This A Quiet Place rip-off was actually okay thanks to Sandra Bullock and Sandra  Bullock alone. I'm not sure how she was able to convey so much emotion without even using her eyes, but god-damn did she sell it. This movie would have been a movie dumped on Netflix and completely forgotten about (like all of their other original movies) without her. And maybe without that crazy dude who tried to get everyone killed on purpose.

Amy Adams & Christian Bale, Vice

I actually kind of liked Vice. Sure it wasn't as good as director Adam McKay's other effort, The Big Short, but I appreciated that it was trying to do some new things. That being said, it's hard to call this movie good just because I liked parts of it.

Octavia Spencer, Ma

Fun fact: I live in Octavia Spencer’s old apartment. Please don’t come by, the place isn’t ready for company right now. Because of that, I have a total soft-spot for Octavia. As far as I’m concerned she could be the greatest actress of all time. And never was that more apparent than in Ma. The twists were obvious, the scared were bad, but Octavia saved the movie by being one of the creepiest characters in a horror film in recent memory.

Ralph Fiennes, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix

Don’t hate on this choice. Order of the Phoenix is hands down the worst Harry Potter movie. It’s just kind of boring. But you know what’s not boring? Our first (real) look at Ralph Fiennes as Lord Voldemort. Talk about one of the most under-recognizes performances of the last decade.

Emily Blunt, The Girl on the Train

My editor is going to hate me for this, but The Girl on the Train was such a bad Gillian Flynn rip off, it was offensive. The twists twisted for no real reason, the supporting characters were underwhelming, but Emily Blunt was incredible. Her performance as Rachel was so good, it made me wish she could be in a better movie.

James McAvoy, Split

Split was okay, not bad. But Glass was another story. James McAvoy’s performance was the only consistent thing in those two movies. And he was excellent. We empathized with him at moments, hated him at others, and were terrified of him the whole time.

Eddie Redmayne, Jupiter Ascending

Why did I watch this movie? Why did I spend two hours and seven minutes of my life watching Mila Kunis and Channing Tatum try to deliver their lines in a way that makes sense? I don’t know. I guess it’s because I hate myself. And then Eddie Redmayne shows up. Is his performance even good? He does that weird thing with his voice where I don’t know whether to be intrigued or laugh. But here’s the thing: it works. It’s the only thing in the movie that actually works. Maybe it’s not actually good, but it fits the movie.

Ansel Elgort, Baby Driver

Full disclosure: maybe people still liked this movie. I thought it was kind of underwhelming. Between the bad car chase in the parking garage, Jon Hamm somehow surviving that fall, and the Kevin Spacey of it all... But Ansel Elgort danced his way into our hearts (oof) with this performance. Honestly I could go for two hours of just Ansel Elgort listening to music. It would probably be better.

Mark Hamill, Star Wars: The Last Jedi

This is the movie that made me realize that most Star Wars movies are bad. Thanks prequels. Fun fact: Mark Hamill hated what they did to Luke Skywalker in the movie, but at the same time, he still killed his (last?) outing as the famous Jedi. And he wears that beard really well. Who knew Star Wars needed more beards?

Chris Pratt, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2

File this movie into the “nothing special" category. Another forgettable Marvel villain, some funny moments, but no real drama between the characters. That is, except for Star Lord. His relationship with both his dad and Yondu were performed surprisingly well for the comedian-turned-action-star. We’ll see it Guardians 3 can capture the magic of the first movie in the series.

Bradley Cooper & Lady Gaga, A Star is Born

Hot take, I know. But we’ve already made this movie four times. Cookie cutter choices from first-time-director Bradley Cooper meant that the only thing that could hold the movie up was the performances from its two leads. And boy, do they deliver. At first I found it difficult to buy Lady freaking Gaga as a down on her luck struggling artist, but as the movie continues, these two just disappear into their characters. Plus, I’m including that amazing Oscars performance as well. Because, well, *chef’s kiss*.

Jennifer Lawrence, mother!

Oh Jennifer Lawrence, I want to love you so much but you make it so hard. Lawrence’s last few movies have been really poor. Mocking Jay 2, Joy, Passengers, Mother!, Red Sparrow, and Dark Phoenix. Not the best run. But here’s the thing: she’s always great! Even when the movie is terrible (and mother! was terrible) she kills it. Her performance in this movie almost made me like it. Almost.

Tom Hardy, Venom

I’m running out of things to say about these movies. They’re bad. Don’t see them. Despite this, Venom still made like a billion dollars. Spider-Man wasn’t even in it! But Tom Hardy was. And honestly I probably like Tom Hardy just as much as I like Spider-Man.

Jennifer Lawrence, The Hunger Games: Mockingjay

She’s back, baby! Sorry, Jen. Honestly, the only reason she’s back on the list is because I really love the way she yells, “Peeta!!!"

Leonardo DiCaprio, The Great Gatsby

No one has ever made a good The Great Gatsby adaptation in the same way that Leonardo DiCaprio has never had a bad performance. I could watch his Gatsby for hours. But it was all the other stuff that was lacking. Luckily he turned around and made The Wolf of Wall Street which is all the fun of Gatsby with none of the boring.

Johnny Depp, Alice in Wonderland

Is Johnny Depp a genius or a slightly better Nic Cage? Probably both. But his performance in the forever-boring Alice in Wonderland remake was actually a lot of fun. That’s all I can say about this mess.

Emily Blunt, Mary Poppins Returns

Our second repeat appearance! Everyone I know loved this movie. It’s just made me want to go watch the original (better) Mary Poppins.  Hot take number two: Lin Manuel Miranda was horrible in this movie and it made me really sad because I love him. Okay I’m done bashing this movie everyone loves.

Sigorney Weaver, Aliens

Catch me outside with this one. It’s one hot take after another, but honestly Aliens is trash. Sigorney Weaver is actually excellent though and handles the horror to action switch really well. Her and Newt are the only things worth saving.

Nicolas Cage, National Treasure

Full disclosure. I freaking love this movie. “I’m going to steal the Declaration of Independence" is this generation’s “rosebud". And even though I absolutely love this film, I can’t deny that it is bad. But it also has Nicolas Cage’s last great performance in a studio movie, so there’s that.
