From John Travolta to Bob Dylan, from Ed Wood to Orson Welles: ‘The Greatest Bad Movies of All Time’ (photo: John Travolta in the Scientology-inspired movie ‘Battlefield Earth’) Phil Hall’s The Greatest Bad Movies of All Time, tagged as a "new celebration of cinematic inanity," was published by Bear Manor on August 12, 2013. According to the book’s press release, the Greatest Bad Movies "are the films that inspire wonder" — of a unique variety: "You are left wondering how seemingly intelligent people could gather together and spend money to create such bizarre productions." According to Phil Hall, among the most wonder-inspiring movies ever made are John Travolta’s Roger Christian-directed Scientology-inspired megabomb Battlefield Earth; John Huston’s sort of The Maltese Falcon send up Beat the Devil, starring Humphrey Bogart, Jennifer Jones, and Gina Lollobrigida; Robert Altman’s Health, featuring a classy cast that includes Glenda Jackson, James Garner, »

A second trailer for Empires of the Deep has arrived, and let's just say it's just as... well... special as the first one was. Sea monsters and Olga Kurylenko? We can't go wrong with that formula, can we?

All three very quickly bailed on the project. That was in 2009. Jonathan Laurence was then brought in to direct, and when he abruptly departed the project, he wasn’t quiet about his disdain for how bad the production was »

Who’S It For? If you are excited for a new Iron Man movie, or even just another installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, then there is no point in me trying to stop you. However, if you’re on the fence about that entity’s conquering, or this movie in general, don’t go; it’s not very likely that this movie’s over-saturation of comic relief and silly action sequences will convince you Iron Man hasn’t worn out his welcome. Instead, this second sequel plays into the simple desires audiences want from entertainment, »
