"I love bad movies, so when i saw there was a documentary out all about ranking the worst movies i thought i'd give it a try.
Don't bother with this DVD. Its 60 minutes long. Now think about that fact. 50 movies, in 60 minutes. Some movies are barely shown for twenty seconds or they use a commercial that reveals little of whats bad in the movie. SO problem number one they don't show enough of the movies. Problem 2 is the bad designs of people booing and throwing popcorn at every movie they talk about. The voice over was also a bit on the annoying side but thats probably the fault of the people who made this.
Its actually very ironic that this being about the worst films is actually a terrible film in itself. Another complaint i have is on what merrits on they ranking these films. FOr a few, it seemed they put their not cause they were the worst movies made but because they were box office flops. I'm not saying Ishtar or Howard the duck were good movies but they shouldn't be placed on a list of the worst. There are alot more terrible films, with acting thats unbelievably bad, mistakes galore, poor lighting, poor directing, poor writing,etc. These were just bad movies that were flops. I'm surprised they didn't throw Heaven's gate in here if they were doing flops.
So i don't get the criteria they were using. A lot of really terrible movies were excluded too for some reason. Manos is sadly missing. Glen or Glenda is alot worse then Plan 9(despite plan 9 having the fame) yet plan 9 got a lower ranking.
I guess the best thing i can say about this DVD is that they did get a list of some very bad movies. Robot Monster and Santa Claus Conquers the Martians are amongst the worst movies you'll ever see. According to the DVD, only Black Belt Jones is a movie so bad its funny but many (If not all) picked are so bad they are funny. I didn't like how they included the movie Troll only because the sequel Troll 2 was so much worse(For heaven's sake, Troll 2 didn't even have trolls in it. it had Goblins. Thats bad!).
So, if you guys want to Watch a List of movies with barely any clips of the films that emphasize there baddness, this a film for you. those of you who don't, heres a breif list of some of their movies.

"First of all, a list of the XX best/worst of anything is always subjective, but the fact of the matter is, the films on this seem to have been chosen strictly on the basis of the film's public domain status and/or the availability of a trailer from which to pull royalty free clips. Frankly, if this was just a trailer reel, I'd highly recommend it, but it's edited together like any one of the endless VH1 shows of similar title. The only thing missing is the "funny" pundits waxing poetically on the subject at hand. (Just try not to get tired of the cheesy linking scene of the crowd throwing stuff at a move screen that is repeated after every movie.)
On the plus side, I discovered a few movies I'm going to have to look for now. There was some trivia in there I didn't know. I only paid $3 but I'll probably never watch it again."
