    What's the point?

    Films of TV series are always terrible, look at Star Trek and Dr Who!!!

    Has anybody mentioned parts 2 and 3 of the Matrix yet. The first one was quite good, but they went badly downhill after that. 4 hours of my life wasted there.....

    Cheers

    3 was painfully dull, but I really liked 2. No film can have that car-chase sequence and still be amongst the worst of all time, even if you hate the rest of it.

    One of the worst sci-fi movies that I have seen, that had a decent budget, was Lost in Space. Absolutely terrible.

    (For the record I haven't seen Armageddon, Avengers or Battlefield:Earth, the reviews managed to keep me away.)

    I quite agree...

    I gather I'm fortunate in not having seen many of the delights everyone has recommended??

    If you have not seen this movie, consider yourself very lucky.
    First movie I walked out of because it was so bad.

    Next movie I walked out of was An Officer And A Gentleman.

    How can we forget Reptilicus, which was so bad it was good. Made all the old Godzilla movies look like special effects giants.
    My personal choice for worst SciFi movie ever made is something called Nightfall, which was loosely based on Asimov's book, but was just plain awful. I watched 30 minutes and had to go wash my eyes out with soap.

    Ah, Reptilicus - one of the good stand-bys on "Creature Double Feature" on WSBK-TV 38 in Boston in the UHF days back in the 80s. You could also count the Gamera movies (also standard along with Godzilla on TV 38 ) as so awfully bad, they were good. And a friend just sent me a "Rodan" DVD the other day. Yay!

    The review of the sequel probably one of the funniest I have read at Mr. Cranky website(here)

    How about "Battle Beyond the Stars"? A "Star Wars" ripoff, with John Boy Walton as a cross between Han Solo and Luke Skywalker.

    They're doing Doom, and from what I've heard, it's going to suck more than Monica Lewinsky in the White House conference room.

    My picks for worst ever:

    Wing Commander: "Yes, let's be all quiet so the Kilrathi don't hear us even though they're on another ship, separated from us by meters of hull plating and kilometers of hard vacuum." The fact that it had to disgrace the once glorious Wing Commander name makes it even worse.
    Star Trek Nemesis: Worst Star Trek movie ever, and considering how bad some other ST movies were, that's saying a lot.
    Star Trek Insurrection: Any respect I had for Picard and the Federation was obliterated after I watched this movie.
    Star Trek Generations: Ugh.
    Alien Apocalypse: I could FEEL the brain cells dying.
    Battlefield Earth: What is that sound? That's right, kids, that's the sound of thousands of viewers demanding their money back!
    The Matrix Revolutions: The Matrix was passable, Reloaded was bad, and Revolutions was unbearably atrocious.
    Independence Day: The world record holder for the number of stupid cliches that can be packed into one movie.
    Planet of the Apes remake: This abortion dug up the original film, smashed its bones, and pinched off a huge loaf into its grave.

    I disagree. All of the Babylon 5 movies (except The River of Souls) were great. Especially In the Beginning.

    I did get paid to see it (one of the perks of being a projectionist). It still wasn't worth it. I wart my two hours back. It wasn't the worst movie I've been paid to see, but it was pretty close.

    I am Arthur Frayn, and I am Zardoz.




    No, you idiot! I am Zardoz!




    In this tale I am a fake god by occupation, and a magician by inclination. Merlin is my hero! I am the puppet master. I manipulate many of the characters and events you will see. But I am invented too for your entertainment and amusement. And you, poor creatures, who conjured you out of the clay? Is God in show business too?




    The brain is good! The Frayn is EEE-VILLLL!




    Actually I'm the secret behind The WiZARD of OZ, but I'm not giving it away!

    Doom was scheduled to be released this fall, but I think it may have been postponed to 2006. Duke Nukem has been in production hell for years with no real sign of emerging. I haven't heard anything about Quake or about shooter movies.

    Starship Troopers, hands down the WORST.

    Take a thought provoking book and turn it into the most mindless drivel ever produced...not to mention portraying most of the characters as the exact opposite of their originals in the book.

    This reminds me of Mystery Science Theater 3000. Some of those movies were so awful they were good.

    Never saw "Alien Intruder", but this is a common occurrence in low-budget movies -- you never see ALL of a monster, because a team of puppeteers is handling either its head or its rear, and must stay out of sight. "She Creature" is a prime example, although it is not SF (technically, it is horror, though not the least bit horrifying), and has one believable point -- the mermaid is not wearing a bra. Where do mermaids in PG-rated movies get their bras? And what for?

    BTW, the mermaid in question WAS shown in her entirety. Putting a tail on an actress is within capacity of even a lowest movie budget.

    Kind of turned some of the messages in the book around, but that makes it a poor adaption, not a poor movie.

    Sometimes people can take a film too seriously, and not enjoy it for what it is. And at the end of the day, some films would just be too far up their own arses if they play it too straight. I mean, they are fighting giant bugs ffs.

    Some people take what Heinlen has written and overanalyse it, argueing the point he was trying to make, and even making personal attacks on him because of it. WHO CARES! Its just a story, that may have had a good idea or two. But it is just a story, not a proposition for the future of the human race. What would that say about George Lucas, if we over anaylyse the universe he created. They are just universes created to enable a story to be told. If the film wasnt faithful to the book, we will just have to wait for it to be told again in the future. There is no way some books can translate to screen, because of the cost of Sci-fi, and it has to be accessable.

    Some people had the same opinion when Lynch made Dune. I thought it wasnt a bad atempt, considering what they were trying to do. You can still appreciate what is on the screen, even if it doesnt fall into your preconceptions of whaqt a film should have. Take LoTR as a better example. Some people critisised that for not being more faithful to the book in some ways. Well, I actualy think the film improves on the book in several ways. There are also one or two things that I didnt like about the changes. But I didnt in anyway loose sleep over these because its entertainment

    Although, saying that, the fist two star wars prequels are so poorly scripted, it could well have been written by George Lucas' kids. But thats a different arguement altogether.

    He names a bunch of Star Trek movies, and Nemesis gets the "worst" nod? Has he never seen Star Trek V?

    Agreed. And so might David Hall, wherever he would be. We just haven't seen the others version
