It's Stupid But . . .

Hot Air has a survey for the worst movie ever made and from the available list I wound up voting for Howard the Duck but the two worst movies I ever saw (Sin City and Wayne's World) aren't even listed. The list includes Xanadu which may not be a great movie but I kind of like (love Olivia's singing) and AI Artificial Intelligence could have been a good movie had it ended differently. The ending ruined it. In my entire life I have only walked out of two movies because I couldn't stand what I was seeing (Wayne's World was one of them and the other c some mercifully forgotten horror flick.) Actually some movies are so bad that their absurdity brings something to them - - Eight Legged Freaks was as stupid as a movie could be but because it was so intentionally campy that it didn't seem so bad, and the same could be said of Mars Attacks. I think it's when a stupid movie tries to take itself seriously that you wind up with something that you can't even watch, except maybe in morbid fascination. This only counts movies I have actually seen.

Unimportant, I know but . . .

Might be a little harsh on Wayne's World, shoprat. It had some decent comic moments.

I haven't looked at the list. If Red Sonja isn't on it then Howard the Duck seems a reasonable choice.

Of course there is always the question of whether "B" movie status disqualifies "SORORITY BABES IN THE SLIMEBALL BOWL-O-RAMA" or whether in fact it's so bad that people miss its redeeming revolutionary dialectic.

... oops, I forgot, this award was retired after "Battlefield Earth".

The ONLY movie that I EVER walked out of:

Bill Murray's BLAZINGLY-STUPID "The Life Aquatic with Steve Zissou."

What an INCREDIBLY wasted piece of SHIT.


Ducky, "Battlefield Earth" IS right up there, also!

We couldn't watch Lost Boys 2. The first one didn't call for a sequel.
