50 Worst Movies Ever MadeIn November, I joined Bigpond's "Fetchme" online DVD library. You get the first month free, so I figured "what the hell?"
Anyway, yesterday, the docu-film "The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made" turned up at my request, and it is hilarious! I might have to hold onto it and take it to Clarion for the students to watch, especially given so many of them are fifties-seventies era, really bad, bad, freaky sci-fi movies.
Not all, though. "Ishtar" made the list at number 44 and "Xanadu" popped in at number... uh... 28 or 29, I think. "Smokey and the Bandit III" made the list too, at #28 and "Howard The Duck" at 40. There was one really funny one where the entire second half was filmed in 1961 and the entire first half was filmed in 1968, and no-one really paid any attention to continuity issues... in scenery, style, dress.... characters.... actors.... story.... hehe.
Number one worst film, according to this list, was the 1967 film "The Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-up Zombies." Funny!
The only thing that was missing was being able to turn to someone and have conversation about it. It's MA rated (because although the whole thing is rather tame, one of the films has an attempted alien-probe/human female rape scene and another one is just... disturbing...) so I wasn't going to let my 14 year-old watch it.
I almost phoned a friend of mine while I was watching it (thought he would appreciate it, a movie buff) but decided against it.
All in all, though, a good top-off to a nice day. :-)
