Buffy (original movie)
I'm starting to become a bit of a fan of the series (came via Firefly; I've now watched series one, and have purchased series 2) so I used the Sky+ to watch this. (Sky+ is dead handy. I know Murdoch is an evil capitalist, but it's not news to me that I'm morally compromised in this way. It's part of the same territory as being a Chelsea supporter).
Anyhow, the film was crap. Lots of good actors displaying a complete incapacity to act; Sutherland and Hauer slumming it; Hilary Swank - who I first saw in Million Dollar Baby last year - was unrecognisable as a talent and - was that Ben Affleck in one scene? Amazing. It takes a seriously awful director to take such marvellous material and produce such a steaming pile.
