Multimedia, AV This is a little bit off the beaten track for OSNews, but hey, it's about science fiction and it's funny. "This month, 'Battlefield Earth', the blockbuster bomb based on the novel by Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard, won the Razzie for 'Worst Movie of the Decade'. J.D. Shapiro, the film's first screenwriter, accepted the award in person. Shapiro, who also wrote the screenplay for 'Robin Hood: Men in Tights', 'We Married Margo', and is developing a King Arthur spoof called '524 AD', explains what it's like to be attached to one of Hollywood's most notorious flops."

Heh. Plan 9 is a walk in the park compared to "The Room". That film is so unintentionally bad it makes Ed Woods masterpiece look competent.

Besides, the worst kind of bad film is boring-bad. I've seen more than a few of those -- Invasion of the Neptune Men comes to mind.

You and I are kindred spirits on this subject, it seems.

oh yeah, I've heard about The Room and it's unintentional hilarity. Haven't watched it yet though.
I agree, nothing is worse than a bad movie that's also boring. Hmmm...BE isn't actually boring.

They actually play it regularly in my local theater -- right next to Rocky Horror.

If you do plan to watch it, you might want to pick up the rifftrax for it too. It's some of their best work.

I caught it one night on Cartoon Network. "WTF, where are 21, Dean, and Orpheus?!" So I checked it out on IMDB, thus finding it was supposed to be one of the worst ever. I sat through most of it, wasting time on the 'net as I did so...and yeah, it's as bad as it is made out to be.

The main character (dude with the hair and the voice) is also the writer, producer, and director. Oh yeah, and it cost over 6mil to produce.
