1. Blood Feast (Walz, 2016) 4.9 on IMDb
This was a lot worse than I'd usually expect from a 4.9 rating, but I'd heard bad reports from the Frightfest screening so I was ready for it. A remake of the H. G. Lewis groundbreaking splatter film in more of a torture-porn style, the brief gore scenes are grimy and depressing, mostly people cutting offal in badly-lit rooms. The bulk of the film is dire soap-opera dialogue delivered by dreadful actors and interspersed with stock footage of Paris in an unconvincing and unnecessary attempt to set the story in France. There's a 37-year-old Playboy model starring as a teenager even though she can't act and the role has no nudity, and it feels like they forgot to film an ending and rolled the credits halfway through the climax.
2/10

1. Ibiza Undead / Zombie Spring Breakers (2016) - 3.3
There were zombies with some decent gore on occasion, and a few dry jokes, but this one just didn't work. The lack of any coherent plot was the main culprit. (2/10)

2. Planet of the Sharks (2016) - 2.7
I like to think the director of this is an alien totally foreign to earth. And the producers said, "We're going to put you in charge of a movie. To prepare you to direct this film, we're going to give you the movie Waterworld, the novelization of the movie Jaws, the wikipedia page on rockets, and the special effects crew from Sharknado. Good luck!" I mean, the pivotal climax was

them stabbing electrodes into a shark so they could launch a rocket to stop global warming.
(1/10)

Anti-abortion.
02. The Trump Prophecy (2018) USA 3 checks {2.9 rating / 1 580 votes]
Christians pray to God to let him become president. Trump isn't even religious so I don't see the logic. They don't mention Pence at all.
03. A Little Piece of Heaven (1991) USA 3 checks {3.9 rating / 168 votes]
Kirk Cameron kidnaps kids and tells them that they're dead and have come to heaven. This was broadcasted on NBC...

I think have had my religious fill for today...

04. Home Alone 4: Taking Back the House (2002) USA 2 622 checks {2.6 rating / 30 273 votes]
Still Kevin McCallister. Stil Marv. All new cast. He's never Home Alone.
(By the way, this one was discussed by RLM and Macaulay Culkin on Best of the Worst)
05. Home Alone: The Holiday Heist (2012) USA | Canada 238 checks {3.6 rating / 6 657 votes]
It's not the McCallisters anymore. At least it has a tiny bit of Edward Asner.

1. Lavalantula (Mike Mendez-2015) 4.7 Rating
Holy crap, what happened to Steve Guttenberg? I mean, he wasn't ever great, but he was better than this. This is just terrible. And the self-awareness of how terrible it is just makes it worse.

2. Eight-Legged Freaks (Ellory Elkayem-2002) 5.4 Rating
Hey! It's a super young Scarlett Johansson. Spider effects are better than Lavalantula. The goofy sound effects put in for the spiders really undercuts any type of horror. Hey, a John Ennis cameo!

3. The Giant Spider Invasion (Bill Rebane-1975) 2.9 rating
If you ignore the really goofy bad puppetry, this is a much, much better movie than either of the other two giant spider movies so far. Better acting, better story, better science, more consistency, more tension.. just worse effects than 8 Legged Freaks and marginally worse effects than Lavalantula. The preacher stuff was annoying.

3. All Girls Weekend (2016) - 3.9
If you're looking for a good example of lack of foreshadowing, this movie hits it. Like there's a massive shift in the tone of the film about halfway through. And definitely a film where I'm pretty sure the writers/actors have never interacted with another human before. 3/10 for me. But let's talk about the worst thing:
The posterShow

Three things immediately jump out at you: 1. There'll be violence. 2. There'll be gore. 3. There'll be T&A. Well, 1) very little, 2) very little, 3) absolutely none at all. All of which is fine - that's just not the poster for this movie.

2. Twilight (2008) 5.2 on IMDb

Image

Between the useless voice-over narration and less-than-stellar performances, Twilight is certainly not a great movie, but it is actually rather decent for what it is. The filmmakers build up the mysteriousness of Robert Pattinson's character well with scarce details only gradually revealed, Carter Burwell's music is appropriately moody and Catherine Hardwicke does at least try to add visual flair, even if her angular shots ultimately come off as random.

3. Arena (1989) 5.3 on IMDb

Image

This quirky film benefits from elaborate sets on a budget and some of the alien monsters (especially one that looks like a giant praying mantis; see above) are wildly imaginative and well crafted, though the humanoid ones are dull. For a film about intergalatic wrestling, however, we see very little action. It is 35 minutes after the opening stretch before we see our next arena fight, and awesome as it is, there is only one other arena fight before the film ends! What is more, in between the fights all that we get are typical scheming antagonists, a dull romance (or two) and lengthy song numbers.

I don't totally want to dissuade because these types of movies (Sharknado, etc.) do have their fans. They are a sort of mash-up homage to 50s sci-fi and 80s action movies. But it's just not well done. It's LARP-level acting with after effects badly editing it.

It's certainly worthwhile watching if you have to scratch that itch of "well, just how bad can movies be". And this is certainly the floor that I'm judging other movies past this point. I've got the sequel (2 Lava 2 Lantula) lined up for later on because I wanted a "giant spider" motif to start off on.

I tend to agree - the first film isn't actually that bad. But it just goes off the rails further and further with each subsequent sequel.

I mean, I'm not exactly lacking for films to plumb the depths of "just how bad can movies be" - I'm starting with a shark motif myself and there are some doozies there.

But mad props to whomever came up with the title "2 Lava 2 Lantula" - something tells me that's going to be the best part of the movie. :P

Stealing albajos' formatting because it looks nice!

04. Red Sonja (Richard Fleischer-1985) 2,150 checks, 2 Official Lists {5.1 / 35,974 votes}
IMBD tag said it had a giant spider, and there was technically one, but it was just a cameo. Still, this was a decent fantasy, not a bad movie.

05. Big Ass Spider! (Mike Mendez-2013) 251 checks {5.3 / 6,460 votes}
Same director as Lavalantula, but this is actually done pretty well. Even gets 2 stars from rogerebert.com. It's the same type of horror comedy, but it looks better and plays better.

06. Eragon (Stefen Fangmeier-2006) 21,466 checks, 2 Official Lists {5.1 / 117,456 votes}
Taking a break from the giant spiders to watch another fantasy movie. This is certainly big budget ($100 million) and made a profit. The effects are good. The acting ranges from good to lackluster. The main protagonist is blandly unlikable. I'm guessing this is going to be more forgettable than anything. :shrug:

1. Congo (1995) - 5.1 on imdb

"Stop eating my sesame cake!!"

Congo was one of the first novels I read that was not kid lit, back when I was 7 or 8. The movie is a bizarre mishmash, horrendous at times and surprisingly competent at others. And it has a weird collection of talent: directed by Frank Marshall (far better known as a producer), written by John Patrick Shanley, and featuring Laura Linney, Ernie Hudson, Tim Curry, Grant Heslov (better known as Clooney's writer buddy), Joe Don Baker, Dylan Walsh, Joe Pantoliano. And in cameo roles: John Hawkes, Delroy Lindo, Bruce Campbell, Peter Jason, and Jimmy Buffett?!?! No, it's not a good movie, but Ernie Hudson was a lot of fun.

Yeah, right after I first read Jurassic Park, I got on a huge Crichton kick and read everything of his. Liked them all - except Congo. Saw the movie, thinking there was no way it could be worse, but I was surprised at how wrong I was.

5. Sharkansas Women's Prison Massacre (2015) - 3.3
This was entertaining, honest, and self aware. Still terrible, but definitely fun. It's exactly what you expect, but so much more! Sure, you have sharks. Sure, you have plenty of references to weird stuff you'd expect from Arkansas. Sure, you have scantily clad women prisoners. Sure, there's a massacre and most people die. But what released the prehistoric sharks? Fracking. But what is there a surprising (and not at all unwelcome) lack of? Nudity. But why should I care about more crappy CGI sharks? They're land sharks that go through land. But isn't that the stupidest thing you've ever seen? Sure, but they made the SNL reference. But who made the reference? Traci Lords - classic porn star.

The storyline is ridiculous here - and an insanely elaborate given that the film is built mostly around its stunts. The film is pretty entertaining though for all its drawbacks. The stunts are as impressive as those in director Robert Clouse's earlier Enter the Dragon with Kurt Thomas flipping around in the air in every angle, jumping and kicking two different baddies at once, swinging on poles and so on. The urban locations are amazing too with the film shot in creepy-looking ancient cities in Yugoslavia. There are also some real imaginative sequences like Thomas travelling through a village of madmen.

Okay, so what you're saying is that we've got 3 weeks to get it added and get 5 people here to watch it? :think: :lol:

Ah well. I'll watch it some other time.

07. Left Behind (Vic Armstrong-2014) 584 checks {3.1 / 33,680 votes}
Such a slow, boring disaster movie. God really comes off as the villain in this Christian movie.

08. The Spirit (Frank Miller-2008) 3,533 checks {4.8 / 57,736 votes}
Combines film noir with superheroes and slapstick. Just weird...

Haven't seen that (don't want to) but I did read the books once upon a time. The book is interesting... not bad and an interesting look at a fundamentalist literal interpretation of Revelations. But the books get worse. And worse.

12. Mac and Me (1988) USA 741 checks {3.3 rating / 10 492 votes]
To do the positives first. The actor sitting in a wheelchair, the lead, do actually have Spina Bifida. This is also the debut of Jennifer Aniston, if only as an extra.
On the negative side this is funded by McDonalds and Coca-Cola and it shows. They never eat anything else. The aliens are probably the ugliest ones we have ever seen, and thus hard to get any sympathy for.
13. Fifty Shades of Black (2016) USA 378 checks {3.8 rating / 17 307 votes - bottom 100: #70]
14. Cyber-C.H.I.C. (1990) USA 5 checks {2.3 rating / 187 votes]
I think this might be a guilty pleasure. The extras do have so many "deep" replies, that makes you question everything.

09. Russell Madness (Robert Vince-2015) 37 checks {4.3 / 509 votes}
From the "Air Bud" team. Dog excels at wrestling. Where, gasp, the evil promoter John Ratzenger is paying off wrestlers to take a dive.

10. Yogi Hosers (Kevin Smith-2016) 355 checks {4.3 / 10,540 votes}
Ah... what the heck is this? Kevin Smith is obviously getting really hacky and lazy in his writing, but his daughter (and Johnny Depp's daughter) totally own the crap and make it work. Just which it wasn't so heavy on the Canuckploitation and I really can't stress enough how bad the writing and plot is.

Sweet and LowdownShow
1. The Nun (2018) 5.4 on IMDb
2. Twilight (2008) 5.2 on IMDb
3. Arena (1989) 5.3 on IMDb
4. Gymkata (1985) 4.3 on IMDb

5. Geostorm (2017) 5.3 on IMDb

Gerard Butler plays a maverick scientist here and the film spends far too much time developing a sibling rivalry when the special effects are the chief sell-point. While some of the stunt driving scenes towards the end are a little silly, all of the disaster segments are well crafted and imaginative, with some truly breathtaking moments as Hong Kong overheats and bursts into flames, as Rio de Janeiro freezes and lightning plagues an American freeway.

Two Nic Cage movies.

2. The Trust (5.4 on imdb) 2016
Police action crime caper. Should have a higher rating.

3. Vengeance: A Love Story (5.2 on imdb) 2017
Police action crime caper. Should have a lower rating.
