      Surf Ninjas 2......and no there was not a Surf Ninjas 1.....the producers of this horrible figured they could make more money if people thought it was a sequel ....their plan did not work.

      For what the title declared it to be, and what you actually got, I hated "Love Story" . . . I love love stories, but you have to 'get' why the protagonist has fallen in love. I see why Zhivago loved Lara, I see why Ben loved Elaine, I see why Smithy loved Paula (and if you don't know that one you've not seen the best love story ever filmed), etc - but I don't at all see how Oliver could fall for Jennifer . . . it was all very lame and passionless.

    Disturbiaposted 6 years ago

    Probably nobody's even heard of this movie.  I saw it when I was a kid and it was so awful I never forgot it.  "Plan 9 From Outer Space" which stared Bela Lugosi.  I don't know who else was in it, I only remember Lugosi, lots of fog, and a very skinny woman who looked like a vampire.

    1. RedElf profile image83
      RedElfposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      It was Bela Lugosi's last movie. Actually he died while filming it, and was replaced by (I think) the barber or hairdresser, so all you ever saw was the muffled face of a too-tall actor skulking through the fog trying desperately to look like Mr. Lugosi.

      My favorite bits are
      1. the garbage-can-lid flying saucer, on really easy-to-see wires, and the wind it kicked up as it "whooshed" by (as shown in jump-cuts between peoples being blown about in a high wind and the "saucer" wobbling by)
      2. the appalling, stilted dialogue outside the crypt just after the funeral

      This stinko has become a cult classic BECAUSE it is so terrible. They were sincerely trying to make a scary film.

      Someone tried to make a film just as bad, but it failed because they were TRYING to make a bad film, and it shows. "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" It's trying too hard and is just crummy, not TRULY AWESOMELY AWEFUL, like Plan 9 big_smilebig_smilebig_smile

    2. Jonathan Janco profile image73
      Jonathan Jancoposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      The woman was Vampira. basically the same as Elvira but hosted late night horror flicks on tv in the 60s. And it was Bela Lugosi's double who appeared in most of it.

      Disturbiaposted 6 years ago in reply to this

      LOL, no way... are they really showing that stupid movie in a film class?  Is it an example of how NOT to make a movie?  It's just so goofy.  I thought it stunk when I saw it as a kid, but years later I saw it on TV and OMG, it was even worse than I remembered.

    I didn't really care for the movie Obsessed with Idris Elba and Beyonce Knowles.  The acting by her wasn't really good at all.  It seemed to gimmicky or similar to Fatal Attraction.  Although Ali Larter was very good in this role and could act.  I like movies that are not so easy to follow and the storyline is unpredictable.

    These two may not be in the league with some of the ones mentioned, but I couldn't (still can't) make myself get through Dream Girls or Nanny Diaries.  Dream Girls wasn't at all what I was expecting (and I think it's awful).  Nanny Diaries is just horrendously unlikable and uninteresting, in my opinion.   hmm

                Unfortunately, all the emotions were anger, depression, desolation, loneliness, hate, insecurity and resignation, but hey, the costumes were up to the task. LOLOL.

    I was up late the other night and happened to catch a completely awful movie called "Village of the Giants" on TCM.  OMG, it was just horrible given that it has some pretty good actors in it. Most of you younger guys probably won't even know who most of these actors are, but if you were around back in the 60s you will recognize Beau Bridges, Tommy Kirk, Ron Howard, Johnny Crawford, Tisha Sterling, Joy Harmon, and a band called The Beau Brummels. Nothing modern, no matter how bad, can rival this trashy movie. It's about some "wild" teens who eat an experiment made by Ronny Howard, boy genius, and grow into 30 ft. tall giants.

      And, lol, you'll laugh, but I LOVE year one. We bought it. To me, it's hilarious. Granted, the range of my humor is pretty wide, so I can be amused by guys trying to track things by tasting their poop. But hey. LOL. And come on, when Michael Cera's character had to rub oil into that disgusting mat of bear fur on Oliver Platt's character's chest? How were you not on the floor laughing?

    I saw it one late night on Insomniac Theatre on TV, and it was just so senseless and amateurish, I couldn't believe anyone actually released that movie.

    Later on, Johnny Depp starred in a movie called "Ed Wood", and it was about the guy that produced these abysmal movies.  That was really a GREAT movie.

      This is so true!  I avoided it because I had been warned....but surprised that no one mentioned.  I'm sure the low budget makers are laughing all the way to the bank.  BTW  I'm going to include WooHoo and BooHoo as tags in my next hub in tribute to you

        You are doing a great service to the HP community.

        Just think of the success the wayward HP souls could achieve if only they were given the tools and no-nonsense guidance within.

    Just saw "Bad Teacher."  It definitely has to be added to the list.

    Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles 3. Even when I was a kid and a fan, I couldn't stand that one. Catwoman, Speed 2: Cruise Control, Batman and Robin... Billy Blanks movies. Also, let's not get started on most of the movies based on video games (even though some might be guilty pleasures).
