Best Worst Movie (100 Films in 2011)

by Jamie Sanford on December 31, 2011

95. Best Worst Movie (available to stream via Netflix)

So, it looks like I will be watching only 95 movies in 2011. Christmas in Florida messed with my movie schedule! Either way, I am pleased that I watched this many movies.

Here is the trailer for Best Worst Movie.

My husband said it best as we were watching this. Best Worst Movie is like a real-life Christopher Guest film. It tells the story of members of the cast and crew of Troll 2, listed on Rotten Tomatoes as the worst movie ever made.

I had not seen Troll 2, but this movie made me want to see it.  Naturally, it has emerged as a cult favorite, with annual screening parties and other events surrounding a screening happening all over the place. We meet most of the actors from the movie in the film, and watch them travel to these screenings and be embraced by fans of the film that is apparently SO BAD.

Best Worst Movie is available on DVD from Amazon for $8.49.

The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made (100 Films in 2011)

by Jamie Sanford on August 9, 2011

47. The 50 Worst Movies Ever Made (Available to stream on Netflix, not available digitally from Amazon)

I can’t find a trailer for this “documentary.”

Do not bother watching this. The Amazon page for the DVD provides the list of movies, and you won’t get much more from wasting 60 minutes of your time.  I imagine that whoever came up with this idea meant well, but this is just a mishmash of clips.  I watched this because I enjoy other countdowns of this nature, I think A&E or Bravo showed one about the best horror films of all time and it was fabulous.

Good countdowns need the following:

  • recognizable movies/songs/etc in the list
  • commentary from entertaining people
  • interesting facts about each thing

This doesn’t really fit any of my requirements for good countdowns.

I’m assuming that no one reading this will be interested in purchasing this mess, but the DVD is available from Amazon sellers starting at $14.99.
