"Flash Gordon"? You mean the one with the Queen soundtrack? I _like_ that one. But I like Howard The Duck too.

So how about Battlefield Earth? Even the book was hokey :)

Starcrash. If you never heard of it, there is a reason.

Then there is the ultimate Golden Turkey. Plan Nine from Outer Space.

It was made tongue in cheek. They knew it was shlock, and it's shlock without pretense.

Event Horizon, I know some people liked it but it just annoyed me worse than Noober in Baldur's Gate.

Worst Sci-fi movie of all time!!???

Is that even possible!!??

Although Event Horizon was pretty stupid and all the Alien rip-offs in that movie made me mad.

I don't like dated sci-fi, like Flash Gordon or Planet of the Apes. Yep I said it, I don't like Planet of the Apes. I also don't like Star Wars A New Hope. Too dated. Anything that looks like it was made in the 60s-70s I am against. This is also the reason why I don't like ANY Star Trek.

I'm sure everyone is starting to wonder why I am the Mod for the Sci-Fi/Futuristic boards now!!:D

MMMWWWWHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAH!!!!!!:D:D:D:D:D:D

Corn. To be blunt, there IS no outcome to this movie. The movie seems to exist solely for the sake of using up an hour and 37 minutes of film. There is one painfully long and awkward 30-45 second scene that involves a mailman delivering a letter and getting a scientist to sign for it. What's the point? Surely there must be one. You keep thinking they must be going somewhere with all of these painfully long and awkwardly paced scenes, so you keep watching. After all, you have invested an hour or so watching scene after scene of this, so you figure surely something is going to happen. Nope.

I wish I could think of a better way to describe how boring and pointless this movie is, but just like it's plot, there's no point.

Event Horizon is actually one of my favorite films. I don't look for "Ripoff of another movie" when I am watching a movie, I look for the story.

My pick for film I liked least is certainly: Battle Beyond The Stars.

There have been so many bad science fiction fiction movies out there, its nearly impossible to pick. my pick would be Yor hunter from the future or Judge Dredd or Predator 2 or the george clooney remake of Solaris as well as the above choices.

Space Mutiny.

It could have been good, even with the BSG ripoff scenes. But no, they screwed it up, even the railing kills.

At least MST3K made it good.

How has "Barbarella" and "Ice Pirates" not made this list? Or "Krull" (although Krull may fit more into Fantasy than Sci-Fi)? "Metalstorm: The Destruction of Jared-Syn"!

Yeah I spent too much of the 80s watching bad sci-fi films... :lol:

Snerk! The first screen should say "Prepare to Hurl."

At least Habitat for Humanity had lots of wood that year. I understand New World Picture donated the excess acting.

It was never released, so it's badness cannot be universally known.

I will say that a film has to suck pretty bad to get canned.

Battlefield Earth hands down. Over-the-top acting, bizarre dialogue and script, and completely ridiculous scenes like cavemen flying F-16s to destroy advanced alien spaceships. The entire cast, writers and crew of that movie should be ashamed that they crafted that drivel and claimed that it was somehow a masterpiece worthy of theatrical release.

Seriously. Total Whiskey-Tango-Foxtrot of a movie.

It makes its badness better known. However one can argue that canning a film is an admission by the makers that it stank.

400,000 word book by a guy that could not cut it in Science Fiction, so he started a religion, cut down to a two hour movie. Yea, suck is bound to happen. And I understand they stayed true to the material.

When you start with suck, suck is all you can get.

Wow!! I had almost forgotten about the travesty that is Space Mutiny. For me it's a toss up between Yor Hunter from the Future and Johnny Moronic - err - Mnemonic. Both of which are ties with the Spacehunter debacle. Cheap film people - the canned footage helped it become a complete train wreck.

I think its gotta be either:

1) Battle beyond the stars
2) Galaxy of terror
3) Message from space
4) Metalstorm the adventures of jared-syn 3D
5) Spacehunter adventures in the forbidden zone
6) Gunhed
7) Morons from outer space
8) Ice Pirates

Something like that.....

Peace & Light

I've got a good one (or bad one as the case may be):

Reptilian

It's sort of a sci-fi/monster movie in the vein of Godzilla. Surprisingly though, it was one of those movies that was so bad that you couldn't help but laugh and heckle your way through it just to see exactly how far into the depths of absurdity it was going to go.

*SPOILERS (for those who care)*

Let me briefly recount what semblence of a plot it had:

*A bunch of government-sponsored paleontologists on modern-day Earth (it is important to remember this detail) uncover an intact skeleton for some gigantic dinosaur.

*A large digital clock in some secret government lab is shown every so often, apparently counting down from 48 hours or so.

*It is revealed through cutscenes that the dinosaur was actually an alien super-weapon that was planted on Earth millions of years ago. Now that it has been unburied, the aliens reanimate the creature and it terrorizes "the city".

*The clock continues to count down, with no indication to the audience as to why.

*When the usual waves of tanks, helicopters and fighter jets fail to stop the creature, the government task force suddenly decides that this is a good opportunity to test out some experimental rocket packs and laser guns they have been developing.

*The purpose of the clock is now revealed: it is the countdown until the government launches a last-ditch nuclear strike against the monster. This is despite the fact that the clock was shown before the creature was ever established as a threat or even as alive at all.

*The government discovers that the creature is being controlled by the aliens (orbiting earth in their spaceship) with a crystal embedded in its forehead. The rocket pack and laser gun toting infantry destroy the crystal and free the creature from the alien mind control. Successful in subduing the creature, the nuclear strike is called off.

*With Reptilian now siding with the humans (for some reason), the aliens decide to send down a...get this...bigger, meaner, tougher monster to destroy Reptilian.

*The humans and Reptilian team up and defeat the big, bad monster and the alien ship leaves Earth in defeat.

:faint2:

Damn...I completely forgot just how bad "Yor; the hunter from the future" was till you mentioned.
Whoever was reponsible for that stinker shoulda been given "buckwheats"

I am still shuddering just thinking about how truely bad it was.

As bad as Yor was...YOU KNOW that somewhere out there in carrot-land...somebody is sitting there thinking to himself:
"What was so bad about Yor?"
This person MUST be immediately located and killed with extreme prejudice.

Yor the Bore. I paid money to see that dog. Someone owes me a refund and two hours.

Starcrash, can't forget Starcrash*.

Didn't Bill Cosby make something vaguely future themed and truly bad? For a brilliant guy he picks the dogs. I mean really picks them.

That is very true as well....but in the very least, Starcrash had Caroline Monro scantly clad for pretty much the duration of the flick....thats gotta count for something, doesn't it?
Now, that I think about it.......No...No, it doesn't....but that probably explains why you "can't" forget it.....she was a babe, even for the gorilla mitten 70's bimbos that proliferated B-Movies of that time.

Actually, I saw Yor three times on the base theater, when I was going to USN Torpedo School in 1984.

The group of people I went with were all players in my Gamma World Game.

It was corny, yet cool in a gamma world-y sort of way.

I was thinking about that film just the other day, when I was considering introducing the younger crowd around here to gamma world.
