bottom dwellers

The bottom 100 thing got me thinking. There are so many movies that are worse than some of the movies on that list.

What about Jeepers Creepers? Slapshot 2? That movie Kurt Russell made, something Miles to Graceland.

I'll think of more, but right now we are going to have our first four-person Double-Dash tournament.


If you take out David Arquette, Kevin Costner and all the loud noise, 3,000 Miles to Graceland would have been OK.

Dick Tracy

Worst. Movie. Ever.

I reserve worst-movie honors for Captain Ron.

Ohhhh, Dick Tracy was really, really bad.

Dick Tracy was bad, but not that bad. 1)Good music and 2)Pacino had a couple of good lines. (Hoffman's "Mumbles" scene was pretty funny, too.)

Waste of talent, definitely, but it is not in the same league as something like, say "Dungeons & Dragons".

You guys are pikers. What about:

Fertilize the Blaspheming Bombshell
Chopper Chicks In Zombie Town
Cannibal Women In The Avocado Jungle Of Death
Surf Nazis Must Die
Flesh Eating Mothers
Attack Of The Killer B-Girls

...eh? Why restrict yourselves to movies with major studio connections, that appeared in theaters?

But I LOVE those kind of movies, Francis. There's a difference between MST3K bad and "Holy crap! I just paid $8 for THAT?? At least they should have had the courtesy to put cyanide in the popcorn!"

Alot of the movies on the bottom 100 were on MST3K, which is probably how they were seen in the first place by those voting on them.

I liked "Jeepers Creepers," and I'm not ashamed to say it.

re Francis Porretto movies: Many years ago, I saw an ad in the LA Times for the following double bill: "Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers" ("They charge an arm and a leg!"), and "Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-a-Rama" ("They roll the gutter balls from hell!") I also remember fondly "Surf Nazis Must Die".

A good many of those films earned their position courtesey of MST3K.

For the first time I disagree with Francis. All the movies he mentioned are classic B-movies, particularly "Cannibal Women."

IB Bill...
Concur yr analysis. There's a difference between the "B" movies and the so-called "A" movies, which ripped us off for $8 big ones, and had the nerve to do so with a straight face.

Whereas "Killer Jujubees from Planet Zongo" let you know right off the bat, it was time to roll 'em if you got 'em, toke up in the back rows of the drive in, and EN-JOY the sheer malarkey of the movie's inane, bizarre, low-budget idiocy!

Yor, the Hunter from the Future.


My father and I saw this in the theater. A great father-son moment where he passed on his great love for incredibly awful movies.
