Worst Movies Of All Time
RiffTrax ^

Posted on 12/28/2012 9:50:24 PM PST by chessplayer

The stars and writers of Mystery Science Theater 3000 have carried our bad movie passion/fixation/incurable mental condition forward at RiffTrax.com. You spend enough time with bad movies, you’re gonna wind up arguing over which ones are truly the worst. Rather than fight it out tooth-and-nail among ourselves, risking possible tooth injury or even nail damage, we put the question to our fans. A record-setting 500,000 votes later, we’ve got the list. RiffTrax's first annual Worst Movies of All Time list. This is it. No more fighting. Because nobody fights about lists on the internet, right? Right??

The new battleship movie. 15 long minutes.
Tried twice to watch.

Ishtar.

Goonies (too much kids screaming, like being at chuckie cheese)

Annie (1981), because my little sister wouldn’t stop playing the tape.

I did enjoy "Battle Beyond the Stars." Good "beer and pretzels" movie. How about "Slumber Party Massacre II" and "Killer Clowns from Outer Space?" The first one, was interesting, there was a guy who had a drill at the end of his guitar wandering around. Those were fun to watch too plus being an 80's movie nut, they fit the bill.

BTW, who can forget the "Porky's" series, I enjoyed those as well.

Wasn’t the lady on the water the protagonists ex-wife, or wife, or something?

Perhaps that movie wasn’t bad, just forgettable. Because I think I have seen it, but I can’t bring it to mind.

My eyes rolled back into my head about halfway through it.

For all I know, she was a friggin’ Kelpie.

The absolute WORST movie ever filmed (and this is a target rich environment here) has to be . . . “Plan 9 From Outer Space”. There are scenes that are absolute howlers. One memorable scene is the cops searching a cemetery “at night” and a “cop” knocks over a cardboard tombstone.

Another has hero Gregory Wolcot and heroine Mona McKenna watching the alien craft land and they are looking in opposite directions.

No expense was spared on the movies’ special effects. In the last scene, the alien craft is trying to take off and make its getaway. The craft is on fire. The long shot of the craft looks like two paper pie plates stapled together, doused with lighter fluid, lit, and thrown in front of the camera — exactly what the film crew did.

TO #15. The character Howard the Duck was funny. Lea Thompson was hot. That’s the only reason anyone liked the movie, though Jeffrey Jones was a really good villain.

A nice diversion for a snow storm.

“The Village”

Within 10 minutes, I had figured out the whole movie.

It was badder than bad.

“The Happening” never happened, for me.

More’s the pity.

“Signs” was excellent.

And then he apparently just gave up.

Troll 2, although I am very partial to Starcrash, the star wars ripoff made by Italians back in the 70’s. David Hasslehoff battling cavemen in rubber masks with a light saber, a drunk Christopher Plummer beseeching the crew of his model spaceship to halt the flow of time, Caroline Munro in a skimpy outfit, a C3PO ripoff comic relief robot with a cowboy accent. It has some of the most unintentionally hilarious dialog and action sequences I’ve ever seen.

To #33: Re “The Cube”. A fascinatingly stupid movie but Nicole DeBoer was pretty good.

When I asked her about “Cube Two”, she said, “It sucks”.

Best review of it I ever heard.

“She’s cute” as a Trill.

How can this list be considered definitive when it only contains ONE film by Ed Wood?

To #42, if I see Conrad Brooks next year, assuming he is still alive, I’ll tell him that someone actually liked Plan 9. Haven’t seen him in a year or more due to his illnesses, and he moved so I haven’t been able to reach him.

PS: Bella Lugosi was very sick during the filming so all they could do was to run old film clips of him from other movies to fill in his character.

Conrad knew the movie was crap and he’s had a ball talking about it for over 50 years. However, his stories about Ed Wood and Hollywood are great. One of the last of the old time Grade Z movie actors who never took himself too seriously.

We both came from Baltimore so we used to trade stories about the old days when it wasn’t a shithole.

PS: Have a great photo of him, myself and Paul LeMat from a memorabilia show in Maryland about 7 years ago. LeMat was a funny guy, and cool too. Turned out to be a good actor as he got older. Long live “American Graffitti”.

Coming to a theater soon: “Plan 9 From Outer Space (Chicago) II Obama’s Rise to Power”

Yeah, Birdemic. Awful in too many ways to list. I have a personal favorite, a little howler named Night Wars. The heroes gear up in the real world and go to sleep to blow away the bad guys in the Land of Nod. The Viet Cong bad guys are all Mexican extras whose necks break when the heroes pull their hair. The main character ducks behind a tree during a firefight, pops his mag to see what he has left, and there is a closeup of a crimped-end BLANK round. Just delicious...

I have a movie script that a grip friend gave me of a movie that was made (don’t know if the scene stayed as is), where the cop hero was in a shootout in a hospital, and he grabbed his dead fellow cop’s revolver, and taped it side by side to his own automatic, to give him awesome firepower during the shootout, while he was firing from behind a water cooler.

We should exempt the 1980’s just to make it interesting. There are so many cheesy flicks to choose from just from that decade...

The Creeping Terror, a REALLY bad 1960's debacle. Made on a shoestring budget (supposedly by students), they lost the soundtrack and had to record the lines afterwards, so the movie switches from dialog to narration halfway through it. A masterpiece of cinematic awfulness.

The Happening.

You must be speaking of the latest movie by that name. The one made in the 60’s, while not great, didn’t reach the level of worst ever

It always amazes me that "Dr. T and the Women" never make this list. Then one day I figured it out. All of the people who have seen it (except me apparently) are part of a mass psychosis wherein they have all removed that 122 minutes from their collective memories.

When that movie ended I just wanted to punch everyone involved in the mouth till they had no teeth left.

There are many movies on this list you can at least watch and have fun making fun of them. Not so with "Dr. T". You just want to take your anger out on someone or something for wasting 2 hours and 2 minutes of your life!

“Avatar,” AKA Dances With Smerfs, is my candidate for “Worst Movie.” It oozed with syrupy political correctness.

One hour into Avatar, I was expecting the Tele-Tubbies to appear. Ten minutes later, I wanted Ripley from Alien to fly by and nuke the place. If a 19th century US cavalryman entered a scene and said: “Ya turned injun, didn’t ya?” that would’ve been the fitting topping on this barf sandwich.

Ta-tonka crap from start to finish.

.? I really liked League.

But my list includes "Less Than Zero," "In the Bedroom," and, yrs, "Inception." At least the first two didn't spend hundreds of millions of dollars to suck.

I would also include the remake of "Total Recall" and the "Three Musketeers."
