Most all the B movies were so bad they were good, if you are into camp. Heck, consider "The Blob." The blob was kept in a bucket when they made it.

My god, The Blob is a good one to add! That damn thing gave me horrific nightmares when I was a youngin, along with Volcano and Congo.

Wonders why so many black people love kung fu movies so much, and still trying to find more than one black Objectivist. A connundrum indeed...

Wu Tang Clan ain't nuthin' to fuck with! :lol: Rich, you can count me as black, 'cause brotha, I got soul!

Haha, I don't know how to start this list, just figured we needed one. So I guess I'll throw Catwoman out there.

-The Fly- (1958) version. Hellp meeeee! Hellp meeeee! To this day I cannot watch it. It scares the bejesus out of me.

~ Well...so much for my 'last' post in this thread!

~ What is it about this idea of the 'worst' film (or book, or whatever) that's so attractive? One spells out whatever it is (or, they are), and that's it, no? NO! One has to check and read if others got a 'worse' one. Talk about maso-competition!

~ In 'checking' the followup commentaries, I notice that WAR OF THE ROSES got focused on by Greybird. In one sense, he's correct, (though there are recent ones even 'worse' [in G's sense], such as LITTLE CHILDREN), but, not in the sense meant by Jeff, who started this thread.

~ There are some cinemae worthless in time-spending in seeing, however 'well done' they may be. The story's 'the thing', bottom-line. However, let's not confuse identifications/evaluations of the appearance of 'the Elephant Man' with the actual Joseph Merrick himself.

~ Even in movies, some are not what they superficially, on 1st seeing, what they seem.

~ I think that too many are confusing (as in any/all 'art' evaluations) 'badly done' with 'metaphysically unnacceptable'.

~ PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE is not in the same league as AMERICAN BEAUTY. The former was 'badly done,' which is this thread's (Jeff's) intended point of 'worst' re films; whereas the latter was a nihilistically bad (Greybird's), yet, well-done movie.

~ WAR OF THE ROSES was not 'badly done' regardless its interpretation by a viewer (and, I disagree with Greybird's view itself therein, but, that's, I stress, a whole separate 'nother subject re comparative 'reviewing' of worth-seeing-for-its-ideas.)

~ In this thread, we're talkin' RODAN and SON OF DRACULA'S DAUGHTERS here where one distractably notices shoddy production values and not sloppy philosophical ones such as the existentialistic THE SWIMMER and NO EXIT.

~ Let's keep a Crow and Tom perspective here, hmmm?

Dang you beat me in that one.

Should also add Barbarella ('68), Altered States ('80), and The Stuff ('85).

The first because it makes the unsexiest use of a woman's body for marketing purposes; the latter two for their sappy, heavy-handed moralizing.

Variations on a theme of Paganini. I ain’t got to show you no stinkin’ badges. We ain't got no badges. We don't need no badges. I don't have to show you any stinking badges!
