I'm watching Ghidra: The Three Headed Monster on Off-Beat Cinema. Looks like Mothra, Godzilla and Rodan are going to team up to save humanity from Ghidra. Stay tuned.

I'm watching "Lady Mobster". Oh man. Susan Lucci is the star. The melodrama is surpassed only by the 80's hairdos and shoulderpads.

It's like Dynasty with fake Italian accents. Actually, most of them don't even make a pretense of Italian or "New York mobster" accents. They all sound like they're from the midwest.

Well, that was 94 minutes of my life I'll never get back. If you ever have a "rent a cheesy movie and mock it with all your drunken friends" night, this is the movie for you!

When you have absolutely positively nothing better to do, including laundry, organizing your sock drawer or cleaning the fridge, you must subject yourself to Killer Klowns from Outer Space I and II. It's your destiny. "In outer space, no one can eat ice cream"

I saw "Howard the Duck" in a theatre. It was so bad, it was worth staying until the end just to see how bad it could get... oh, and because I was with a girl that I really liked

The best bad movie I've seen recently was "A sound of thunder", starring Sir Ben Kingsley. The "monkeysaurs" at the end made for great comic relief - on top of the worst blue screening i've seen in recent years.

I usually dislike about half the movies I see, and the majority I read about, so here goes:

Any Arnold Schwarzenegger film, Rocky IV, Rambo: First Blood Part II, Looking for Mr. Goodbar, Halloween III, Nixon, Friday 13 (all parts), Red Dawn, Iron Eagle, Saturday Night Fever, The Tenant, Black Hawk Down, The Titanic (latest version), Sgt. Pepper, Brokeback Mountain, Godzilla (latest Version), Lady Chatterley’s Lover, Desperately Seeking Susan, Barb Wire, Fort Apache The Bronx, Death Wish II, Dumb and Dumber, Jaws II, Dune, Grease, Airplane I and II, Planet of the Apes (remake), all sequels to the Planet of the Apes, Phantom Menace, The Car, Heartbreak Ridge, Dukes of Hazard, The Piano, Cape fear (remake), the Spy Who Shagged Me, The Green Berets, Gangland New York, Exorcist II, Caddyshack, Pet Sematery, Battle Beyond the Stars, Mad Max: Road Warrior, the Haunting (remake), Tomb Raider, The Blob…

And a whole range of others, including slasher flicks, unconvincing vigilantes, not-so-funny comedies, boring romances, scandalous affairs, teen school/sex movies, non-mysterious mysteries, bad musicals, unbelievable female warriors/babes revenge, cheap sci-fi, senseless gang violence, macho morons, gross horrors, twisted life-styles, hyper-patriotism, war propaganda, big money/corporate worship and really, really, really lousy remakes, whose names I can’t remember and don’t care to.

And please don’t waste my time and yours by asking me why. T’aint worth the effort.

This kinda combines those categories, but one of the finest cinematic experiences I ever had was watching, on video-TV, "Predator". (Arnie in the jungle with alien.) It isn't actually badly made, it's just silly. And with a bunch of increasingly drunken friends who enjoy a lot of heckling, it was some fine hoot.

You don't like Airplane? Surely you can't be serious.

I don't think there's ever been a movie as bad as Howard The Duck. So bad, it was hilarious.

13 posts and no mention of the legendary Edward D. Wood, Jr? Creator of Glen or Glenda and the never-to-be-sufficiently-praised Plan 9 from Outer Space?
