I know what you mean - IMDb fundamentally changed the character of their bottom list when they upped the needed minimum ratings from something like 1500 (no more than 2500, that I'm sure about) to 10,000 votes - effectively killing off all of the vintage trashy B-movies. Very sad.
The previous 100 were stuffed with crazy titles which often gained their notoriety through being featured in MST3K; thus the old Bottom 100 was without doubt skewed too, but in a more pleasing way.

Oh, look at that! mighty still has a version of the unaltered Bottom 100 from 2017 - 50% entries older than 2000, a great part older than 1985, with all the cult ridiculousness. [edit]The current version has 5 titles earlier than 1985 :ermm:
Please never update it!

[edit]Oh, so The Emoji Movie is an official check. Swell.

Strangely I've actually seen fewer films from the 2017 list, though there are more on it that look at least vaguely watchable to me. I'm also more specific-genre focused when it comes to bad movies - I will watch almost any bad (or good) sci-fi, fantasy or action film but bad comedies? Just not worth the pain. And I think nostalgia plays just as much a role with bad movies as it does anything else; Mac and Me is an eternal favorite for example but apart from Neil Breen's amazing filmography there is little from this century that I have really enjoyed in the same way. And most of the ones I have are, like the Breen films, too little voted to ever make it to the IMDb list. Uwe Boll is kind of a sweet sport for me though, I've kind of loved the three films of his I've seen, so maybe I should check out the ones I haven't that are on the list, or more stuff like them.

Cool.
I'm exactly at Gold and would never randomly go beyond 95 for this.
Goodbye Mr. Christie (2011) looks particularly obscure, 7 checks on ICM, 22 Votes on IMDb. Wow.

No plot summary either. Armo has seen it and knows what it’s about?

That's a longish film tho. You can watch his lower rated shorts to get the picture i guess.
