It is, however, the second worst movie in the history of the world.


Living in Australia I can understand your comment. What is the
"worst" movie? At least as far as you are concerned?

I feel many movies made of Native Americans here vie for the
category as you mention it.

My vote for worst is Mr. Costner's "Waterworld," at least in U.S. cinema.

I'd go with Attack of the Killer Tomatoes! At 87 minutes it was about 57 minutes too long..

My contribution: "Ishtar", and "Barry Lyndon".

There is always one second best or second worst but of best and worst there are always many.

Part of your post did not make it here, Bran, but comes in the email. I did sit through Barry Lyndon
twice, and the second time, paid close attention to costumes and appurtanences. Lots of good movie/bad
movie depend, I suppose on our like or dislike of the actors. I liked "Australia" for instance, but
won't see a Tom Cruise movie, no matter how many millions they pay him.

They do have the tendency to clog up one's inbox, that's for sure.
I did not get them for a very long time, but then would lose
someone's comment to me, and I would reply days later, long after
the topic had changed, or in anagram stew, the word itself had
gone on to greater heights.
(You's was some sort of glitch in the system: because when I
tried to click on your response, the site said it could not
link to it: I got here through the back door, back up to forums
and down to the thread.)

Ishtar and Barry Lyndon! Terrific choices - one worse than the other. We seem naturally to have focused on relatively big-budget movies that should have been good, but stunk. If we widen the net to include low-budget films, there are too many really, really, bad movies to count or to rank. In fact, "rank" is a good word to use in association with this class of film. They used to be hard to find, but now they're available on DVD anywhere movies are sold. They're not all old, either. They just stink. My son and I watch them (particularly those striving to be classified in the sci-fi genre) just for the laughs they provide.
