That would be Plan 9 from Outer Space by the glorious Ed Wood.  Bela Lugosi's last screen appearance.

There's also a movie about Ed Wood, titled Ed Wood



Thats the one! Thanks!

Oh yeah, I cant believe I wached all of Zardoz. I must have been nuts

Worst war movie ever?

Won't answer that. Too many of them quality... so I'm going to stick with "worst war movie in recent memory"... and hands down that goes to "The Thin Red Line"

I found the film I referred to in a earlier post: "The North Star." I recall it showed a happy Ukranian village suddenly under attack by the Wermacht, and the reaction of the villagers. Of course, no mention was made of the millions starved to death in the 30's nor the constant terror of life under Stalin's rule. "Mission to Moscow," also with Walter Huston" was made the same year, 1943, and was another film produced to glorify the USSR. How tragic it was that we had to support one vile totalitarian regime in order to defeat another.

I Am Omega.   I thought this was going to be like I Am Legend and it was like I Am The Crappiest Movie Ever.

Lions Gate seems to put out some pretty low budget crappy movies as well.

omg, Master and Commander may be the BEST movie in its genre, Why? The relationships between the officers, the junior officers men of the gun crews, and the MAster and sergion are developed in greeat detail, with a great score and riviting drama.. just to show U to each his own lol!!!

I especially like how real the scenes are as my house shakes under the subwoofers roar of cannon!




freeboy I am with you there, one of the best movies to test your sub and surround setup on. Great movie to boot.

I'll offer two that everyone should agree are near the top of the Worst Movie list:

Spielberg's "1941" and Lucas' "Howard the Duck". Honestly, two of the worst movies ever made. So I take back what I said. "The Battle of the Bulge" was a bad movie, but not the worst. These are much, much worse. Really bad. El Stinko.

Anyone ever see Mega Force? That was the only movie that I observerd being filmed. The actors seemed really quite stupid; it took many "takes" to do some really simple scenes. I still was looking forward to its release at the theaters-thinking that it was a good action movie. It was shockingly bad-the acting and the whole story. It was made in '81.

No worst movie list is complete without mentioning Battlefield: Earth.

Jet planes that fire right up after sitting idle for 1000 years and are expertly piloted by a rag-tag group of ignorant subhumans with just a few hours training....

Need I say more?

I liked U571. Watched it the other night and I thought it was ok...certainly not the worst film I'd seen.

What about Flash Gordon? "Flash, Flash, I love you, but we only have fourteen hours to save the Earth"

Blue Lagoon. My -now - ex made me go and see it. It's the only film I've fallen asleep watching in the cinema. Oh, and Santa versus the Martians.

Yeah that movie was HORRIBLE!!! Remember when the hero knocked on the bad guys tank and when he opened the hatch to see what he wanted the hero told him " The good guys always win!"

Dark Star.

Zardoz was an Academy Award winner by comparison.

Flash Gordon was a tongue-in-cheek tribute to the comic strip, radio show, and tv show that originally inspired the movie. Camp at its best. I think some folks took it a little too seriously.

And Max Von Sydow as Ming the Merciless was awesomely cartoonish over-the-top evil. Almost as good as his character in Strange Brew.

Funnily enough I liked Flash Gordon - it was meant to be well-over-the-top and it was.

As for "The Big Red One" I did like it. It's an odd movie. On first release it got totally panned. Then a recent director's cut was made, and the film was MUCH longer and apparently a completely different film as a result. The new release won a Palme d'Or, at Cannes, fairly recently. It is stylized, and maybe unrealistic, but it's just really about 6 men. The rest of the war goes on around them, almost without any context. I found Marvin, who I usually have little time for, strangely moving towards the very end. Give the new DVD a try. I would rate it WELL above Private Ryan, which I think is a lousy movie. The initial stages are frighteningly brilliant, but after that it's just tush, has the "typical" character profiles, and in places it's just nauseatingly sugary.

I would say that every "Ernest" movie ever made was awful, but I have to admit to finding them a hoot, as long as you watch them with a youngster.

I'm also a great fan of Dark Star. I know I'm completely without objectivity about it. Some films just seem right at the time that you watch them. I think you probably need to be fairly high to enjoy it. The crew sure were! and I liked the stupid conversation with the bomb. The film wasn't meant to be serious, except in it's complete (but sadly; oh so common) absurdity.

Totally worst movie - any WW2 John Wayne movie, plus his great artistic high point - The Green Berets!


Have to admit i love his cowboy films though

John Wayne should've stuck to cowboy films where he excelled. His war movies were pants.

I too liked The Big Red One.

As for Dark Star, I turned it off after 20 minutes.

I liked Flash Gordon at the time, but being older now I couldn't sit and watch it again!

Just finished watching Dragon Wars and that has to be one of the worst movies I ever saw....the opening exposition sequence was so laughably bad that I could not believe it could get any worse....it did... though I will admit that one 10 minute urban battle set piece, where "Lord of the Rings" meets "Black Hawk Down", did hold my attention before quickly losing it again....

Sorry about Dark Star Judge - it's all a question of age. I'm ancient and it seemed cool at the time. But, so did paisley shirts!


As for Flash Gordon - it's so kitsch that the older you are, the more you should watch it!

Hmmm, there are a lot of movies on this list that I like. I guess everyone has their own taste.

My personal most disliked movie was Leaving Las Vegas. I couldn't wait for Nicholas Cage's character to die and put me out of his misery.

I nominate Fantasy Mission Force

Some highlights from the Wikipedia entry:

the film begins with a Japanese attack on an Allied military camp, which a map reveals to be somewhere in Canada...

femme fatale Lily (Brigitte Lin), who sports knee-high red leather boots and a bazooka...

After obliterating the Amazon tribe...

attacked by sword and axe-brandishing Chinese Nazis riding in 1970s-era muscle cars...

with another killed by a sword in the buttocks..

The full description
