I rented film last night called 'The Salena Incident'. This has to be one of the worst films I have ever seen. Not only is the acting terrible, but the explanations used..... I will never watch this again - in fact I'd rather stick a fork in my eye...

I have read the Updated Essential Guide to Weapons and Technology and most of Wookiepedias articles on weapons, and have found not one instance of a bent barreled gun.... <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <span style="color:#993366">In the event of a full scale nuclear war or NEO impact event, there are two categories of underground shelters available to the public, distinguished by depth underground: bunkers and graves...</span> </div>

Contact was pretty bad to me in the sense. I just didnt like it too much.

Well, there's difference between a show you didn't like and the worst movie ever, after all...You really think Contact was the worst sci-fi flick ever?

**puts on flameproof asbestos suit**<br /><br />Without a doubt: 2001: A Space Odyssey<br /><br />Watching this movie was like an having your entire body numbed for 2 hours in a novocaine bath, then Stanley Kubrick decides to show you what it is like to be on LSD for 15 minutes, and then his you in the finale with the hallucinagenic peyote where there's a giang fetus orbiting the Earth?<br /><br />W<br /><br />T<br /><br />F!!!!!<br /><br />The only good part of the movie is the opening scene. After that I wish I would have had my brain sucked out through my eye sockets with a shop-vac. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

2001 is an orchestra of cinematic virtuosity. However, it is also intensely boring. And personally, I gotta' think if there was any good parts, then this movie fails to be the worst. Watch lawnmower man! There isn't a single gruelling second of that masterpiece that doesn't flail at one's intellect like an...evil...brain squishing...squid thing...of badness.

Hey, I haven't seen it myself, but last night I think I saw a potential stinker of a movie. The digital cable receiver's onscreen guide gave me a brief description. The flick is called, "The Beast Of Hollow Mountain" (1956), and it's about how an American cowboy living in Mexico struggles with a <b>Tyrannosaurus</b>!<br /><br />I didn't see it, but this one looks like it's got Mystery Science Theater 3000 written all over it. <img src="/images/icons/smile.gif" /> Who knows? Maybe I'll be surprised, and it will actually be really good.

Seems like any flick from 1956 is going to have too much ironic value to be considered truly terrible. SciFi channel creature features are so much less entertaining and terrible to watch. Maybe in 50 years they'll be amusing to someone. No, scratch that, I'm positive they will.<br /><br />

I didn`t see "Sphere" getting a (dis)honourable mention, a plot that actualy had no plot or direction and an ultimate cop out ending that wasn`t an ending, worst ever IMO (awe cmon guys...you can`t slag Barbarella off...it`s classic...what with Durran Durran and his pleasure organ and all :) )<br /><br />steampowered

Do you mean to tell me that Duran Duran wasn't just a catchy 1980s rock band?<br /><br />Regardless of all that Hanoi Jane stuff (which happened when I was in diapers), I'd still like to see Jane Fonda when she was hot. Now I'll have to watch that movie sometime. <img src="/images/icons/wink.gif" />

they took the name from the character for the band, the pleasure organ is one of the most erotic/fun scenes in sci fi I have seen (but the fx are pretty miserable in places, particulary the "ice skate" creature)<br /><br />steampower<br />

LoL. that was funny.<br /><br />But you gotta admit it was original. Nothing like that had ever been done in movies.<br /><br />For me, i remember the first time i saw it, just mesmerized. It was an experience more than a movie. And i just sat there enraptured by it all...I was also ten. and it probably fried my brain, but sure left a lasting impression of the possibility of movies the likes of which i had never seen or experienced. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> </div>

<b>Although a contender would be The Adventures of Pluto Nash. Awful Eddie Murphy film from a couple or three years back -- the one thing Murphy's ever done filmwise to cause him to hang his head in shame. </b><br /><br />Without Dennis Quaid, I would agree. As it is, his character basically stole the movie -- and if not exactly redeemed it, at least made it tolerable.

Gosh there are so many rubbish sci fi movies out there. But some you love to watch like asters of the universe. Evil Lynn and all the monsters walking through La with no one relly caring is sooooooooo funny. I a sure a ovie like that doesnt do well for your career. A good example is the person who playes Tom Paris on voyager. He went fro a terrible show to dare i say it another terrible show. He was good in TNG episode though.

Contact was a great movie. "Boring" is subjective. I would say that this movie has the least amount of bad science of all that have been mentioned. Movies such as Armegeddon and The Core have science that is so bad it's hard to imagine anyone with any knowledge of science had a hand in writing them. With that said, I did enjoy both of those movies, also. I'd like to nominate Godzilla 2000. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <div> </div><br /><div><span style="color:#0000ff" class="Apple-style-span">"If something's hard to do, then it's not worth doing." - Homer Simpson</span></div> </div>

How about the 1976 remake of <i>King Kong</i>? There was a budget wasted...

Indeed... the special fx in the original 1933 version were more realistic. <div class="Discussion_UserSignature"> <div> </div><br /><div><span style="color:#0000ff" class="Apple-style-span">"If something's hard to do, then it's not worth doing." - Homer Simpson</span></div> </div>

My all-time worst would have to be the sci-fi "comedies" <b><i>Slapstick of Another Kind</i></b> and <b><i>The Brother from Another Planet</i></b>.
