The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made

Photobucket


I bought this DVD a long time ago called The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made. It's a 60 minute rundown of 50 of the worst movies of all time, along with clips and narration that provide some interesting trivia facts about each. A lot of people have bashed the DVD saying it's too short and it sucks, but i've always liked it and in fact just gave it another watch the other night. Which is where the idea sprang into my head that i'm probably gonna end up regretting.....

I am going to watch 'The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made'. All of them. And i'm dragging you along with me on this journey through the worst of the worst of bad cinema.

My plan is to track down, watch, and give my thoughts on each and every one of these poorly crafted gems for your enjoyment and at my own expense. It's just something i've gotta do. I've always had a fascination with bad movies and this is perhaps the ultimate showing of my love for them. As nice as it will be to share my feelings with you guys on each of them, it's gonna be even nicer to once and for all be able to tell people that I, in fact, have seen 'The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made'.

Being that it could take a while to watch and seek out all of these movies, this is something that's going to be an ongoing thing on here, with no set starting, watching, or ending schedule. I've included a button on the sidebar to your right so you can track my progress with ease. A good portion of these movies are from the horror genre, so this won't be too off topic and besides, I think everyone secretly loves shitty movies and will enjoy this journey!

What are the alleged '50 Worst Movies Ever Made', you ask? Well you'll just have to wait and find out! I will say that first up, coming in at #50, is Ed Wood's tranny masterpiece, Glen or Glenda, which should give you a good idea of just how bad these movies are gonna get. If any Ed Wood flick is ranked the best among 49 other movies, you can imagine the kind of stuff i'm gonna have to sit through over the next several months!

So come along with me, if you dare. The journey begins soon!

Oh I can't wait to read your reviews on these classics. From the picture, I could only make out Xanadu, Howard the Duck, Bloodsucking Freaks and Leonard Part 6. All of which I admit seeing at one time or another. I wonder if Sgt. Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band made it on that DVD.

Johnny said...

No sir, it is not

OMGSeriously said...

:) I'll be on the lookout as well.

Bjornabo said...

Sounds like a funny idea. I`ll try and keep up with you if you post the movies ahead of when you are going to see them. :-)

I guess I have at least some on your lsit and if not im ging to get them.

Johnny said...

If you give me your e-mail, i'll send you the complete list so you can keep up if you'd like =)

Can see Plan 9, that's usually #1 in any list like this. I gonna guess that Queen of Outer Space is in there, Robot Monster, Bride of the Monseter are included as well.
What year is the DVD? I'm wondering that if the list was fluid, what would drop out and what would enter, Stop or my mom'll shoot, Gigli and so on.

Johnny said...

The DVD was made in 2004 and yup, Plan 9 is of course on the list, although not at #1. Bride of the Monster also made it on.

Jason said...

This film project sounds border line sado masochit. Enjoy!

Chris said...

I see Frog is on the list. It's that sort of movie that makes you feel like you need to take a shower after watching it. If you managed to not fall asleep watching it.

Is "Manos" on the list? If you can make it through that without the MST3K crew, you deserve some sort of award.

Cins said...

*L* Would you like me to give moral support when you watch Xanadu? Its one of my favorite movies...I think only me and drag queens love that movie. I still have yet to see a straing guy make it through.

Johnny said...

Chris - Manos is actually not on the list, I don't believe, which is pretty surprising considering that's largely considered the worst film ever made. Unless I just missed that one on the DVD.

Cins - My goal is to make it through all of these movies in their entirety so I think I just might be the first straight guy to sit through Xanadu! Got any advice?

Geof said...

Well I have some advice...beer. Lots and lots of beer. I lost a bet two years ago and was my punishment was a credits to credits viewing of Xanadu. I still have nightmares and can't get the title theme out of my head. Good Luck, Johnny, good luck!

Johnny said...

Haha I look forward to the challenge!

Cins said...

Johnny>>*L* My advice for a straight man who doesn't like musicals watching Xanadu? Liquor. LOTS of it! Even for me Xanadu is a lot more fun when soused.
Out of curiousity, is the movie The Apple on there? That one is even WORSE than Xanadu.

Johnny said...

Well I just so happen to have lots of liquor at my disposal! The Apple is not on there.

mail sent your way ;-)

A most excellent challenge Johnny, maybe if you post the complete list of films we can all make donations if we have any of them!

Johnny said...

That's actually a great idea. I could use some help and I think i'll make a seperate post kindly asking for donations! Thank you for the idea, sir!
