I would have preferred a more detailed hence longer "analysis". And at least one Kusturica film!
19 March 2008 | by (Serbia) – See all my reviews

The narration is rather forgettable, but at least it offers occasional interesting info (sometimes dubious) about the movie in question. Obviously, such a short list cannot possibly please everyone, and will be omitting many fan favourites, so to complain about why such and such was not on the list is just childish. After all, there aren't 50, but probably around 20,000 truly bad films. Personally, I could complain that "Malcolm X", "Yentl" or any Gus van Sant or Emil Kusturica film didn't make the list, but what's the point? The fun is in anticipating what the next film in the countdown will be...

There were some films I've seen, some that were ripped apart by MST3K, and some that are so obscure I've never heard of them. Some useful tips here...

One criticism is that I'm not sure I can trust everything that was said here. For example, the narrator claims that Bela Lugosi died before "Plan 9" was completed. Utterly wrong. The movie was never even started during his lifetime; Ed Wood used old reels that had nothing to do with it. I wonder how many other pieces of misinformation there are...

Not as entertaining as "It Came From Hollywood", but quite solid.
