I tweeted the first five of these movies on my own account, but after that decided to create an account specifically for the list that we can all use. It’s @TheCliffList should you want to follow along.
Every year a group of friends and I take part in a fantasy football (soccer) league where winning is not the goal of the league. The goal of the league is to avoid finishing last.
There are a small number of of us involved in this league and before the season begins we each add ten movies to a master list. These are not movies of resounding quality.
Then at the end of the football season those lucky souls who have avoided last place boil that master list down into a terrible pot of concentrated evil of 20 movies and the last place finisher is made to watch them all before the new season begins.
Last year we made our leagues loser write a recap of his experience as he watched each movie, while we all laughed at his misfortune.
This year they all get to laugh at me. In public no less. Rather than keep the recaps to ourselves we’re sharing the experience live on twitter.
If you’d like to follow along with my despair you can follow me on twitter @chrishamilton or follow the whole ugly conversation using the hashtag #TheCliffList. I’m probably going to share those twitter sessions here on the blog too.
For those interested, the list takes its name from one of our friends who has despicable taste in movies.
The final list of movies for this year is below. It’s unlikely that I’ll be watching them in any kind of order, so I’ve just added them in the order they were gleefully sent to me.
The Cliff List
- Mrs Brown’s Boys D’Movie
- Spice World the Movie
- The Grace of Monaco
- Sex Lives of the Potato Men
- Double Dragon
- Alone in the Dark
- Mortal Kombat
- Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li
- Jack and Jill
- The Love Guru
- Deep in the Valley (Also known as American Hot Babes)
- InAPPropriate Comedy
- Hannah Montana the Movie
- Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie
- Sex and the City

I think I’m going to start watching them this week, though I’m going to need to stock up on various types of booze to get me through this list first.
Pray for me.
