I know everyone is entitled to his own opinion, but how can it be a waste of time?

I dont consider anything a wast of time unless I dont gain anything from it. And even in that case, you gain something truly important by watching a piece of crap: What NOT to do in movies. Sometimes movies doesnt work, and we can all learn a lot from movies that fail, because thats the only way you can realize what the audience likes. Remember: there is no magical formula for making good movies.
By reading the script only, "Jaws" for example was a movie that should have tanked. No exposition of the 'monster', long scenes, etc, yet once everything was assembled, edited and proyected turned out to be a classic, and not showing the creature was what drive the suspense. Same as Blade Runner (poor box office performance) or even The Matrix. So, saying something like "my script was better", really means little.
Calling it the worst movie in years only mean that "The Legend of Chun-Li" or "Blair Witch 2" are masterpieces and even those movies can teach us something like I said in the second paragraph.
