The 3 Best Worst Movies Ever!!! ... PART ONE

  • Jul 28, 2009
Some films are so awful that they're awful. Others are so awful that they're awesome. Here are some of my favorite films that I'd be embarrassed to be caught watching... more than once.
1
Poster
Do I really have to explain this one? Between the horrid special effects (paper plate spaceships) and cheap props (cardboard cut-out tombstones) and terrible acting (what's a phony TV psychic doing in a sci-fi film), not to mention Ed Wood's incompetent directorial vision, what's not to love?
2
Howard the Duck
Certainly the worst thing that George Lucas ever produced and often considered the worst comic book adaptation of all time, Howard the Duck still makes me cringe with its low-brow humor and some of the worst acting ever caught on film. Oh yeah, and the script's a really piece of work too.

Teen Wolf
As a child of the 1980s, Michael J. Fox was a hero to me, mainly because of his brilliant performance as the cool slacker Marty McFly in the "Back to the Future" films. But what was he thinking when he signed on for this terrible comedy that attempted to combine "An American Werewolf in London" with "Fast Times at Ridgemont High"?

What did you think of this list?

I love Ed Wood's passion for what he made. It was as if each film was meant to change the world a little bit. It's just such a shame that he screwed them up so bad! But for energy and style he shares a special place alongside truly brilliant minds like Jim Henson and Dr Seuss.

I don't know if I would go quite that far, but he definitely doesn't get the respect he deserves, if not for his talent then at least for his passion for films. In my book Jim Henson may very well be one of the most underrated and genius directors ever.

I thought PLAN NINE was supposed to fall in the "so bad it's good" category, although I never found it very entertaining at all.

Really, I thought it was "almost piss your pants" hilarious as an old school buddy would have said. So bad. "Glen or Glenda" is even worse (completely incomprehensible), but funnier. "Pull the strings! Pull the strings!" Hilarious!

The word "stupefying" comes to mind.
August 17, 2009
But in a good way!
August 18, 2009
No, not at all. Mind numbingly stupefying.

Maybe it's a matter of taste or the lack thereof. But I liked it in a David Lynch incoherent mindfuck sort of way.
August 18, 2009
But David Lynch isn't incoherent because he LACKS TALENT. There's a difference.

True, but a work of art is independent of the artist, no? For exapmle, when you saw the film "My Kid Could Paint That", did it matter if she painted those pictures or not? Does it make a difference what the artist's intentions are so long as people are affected by their work on an emotional level? Yeah, Ed Wood was a terrible movie maker, but he loved it so much. He lived and breathed film. It was his passion. So you could still see his films and feel that love and acknowledge simultaneously that the films are, at least from a technical and artistic standpoint, total crap. But they're not without meaning. Some of his films were actually very profound in their intentions, but poorly executed, and that doesn't change the fact that they're funny as hell.

Ah, but the paintings were being highly regarded because they were believed to be by a 4 or 5 year old. If her father tried to seel them as his own works he probably would have been ignored. So it does matter. What is remarkable if it's done by a child loses its value if it's done by a guy in his mid-thirties because lots of artists in their mid-thirties could paint that. It's really my respect for his intentions that keep me away from Wood's films. I don't go to movies to ridicule someone's work.
