First of all, most movies on this list are not really bad. But they are not good either. In order not to bore you with every average movie I have seen I will restrain myself only to those of interest. That means you will find movies here that were successful at the box office but did not deserve that undue success or movies that did not stand the test of time. Other entries concern movies that are acclaimed by critics but to me are nothing short of being pretentious. Other titles could include films that were much talked about for whatever reason upon their initial release and therefore hold some kind of reputation that, however, do not qualify them for quality movies. You may also find movies here to which famous actors or directors contributed to but which are a let-down in the end nevertheless.

So, have fun browsing through my selection of the odds and sods of the movie world and let me know what you think.

PS: This list is by no means complete as I will add new worthwhile films as I stumble across them.
 
a list of 150 titles
This list is dedicated to those pictures that are not much talked about or sometimes even sneered at. Most of these movies were made on a small budget but can be very entertaining nevertheless. That is, if you generally dig B-pictures of the sci-fi or horror genre, for example. Some of the entries might be considered trash, but I assure you that you will find only the hilarious ones here. So, if you are in the mood for a somewhat different movie that does not necessarily follow mainstream rules, chances are that you will find here what you are looking for.

As usual, don't hesitate to leave a comment if you feel up to it.

a list of 27 titles
Have you ever been in a situation when you read a flims title or summary or saw a movie poster, a trailer or just some screen shots of a movie (especially of B-films) and you thought: "Wow, this looks like heaps of fun!"? You rented that film and after one and a half hours (at the most) you got that nagging feeling that someone stole that exact amount of precious quality lifetime from you. Well, basically this list is about those films. No matter how reduced your expectations had already been, no matter how much you care for flicks of that genre in general - these films did not even meet those expectations, not by a far shot. Even as a fan of trash films you refuse to acknowledge the existence of this list's entries, simply because a good trash film, even considering its manifold shortcomings, is at least fun. So beware, the films on this list are everything - except fun. Needless to say, I had quite some fun in doing this list, although it brought back painful memories.

After creating my Best-Of-Lists for every decade I felt like some pretty good movies were still left out. To change that here is my The Good... of the 1930s list. Mind you, as the heading implies the movies on this list are not bad. I just do not feel that they belong on a Best-Of-List.

Here they are. The movies I consider to be the absolute best motion pictures of the 1920s.

One little thing on a personal note: I do not think that most of the movies I put on this list are, what you would generally call, "enjoyable". Those are silent films we are talking about here, after all, and sadly, as I have found out for myself, it takes some considerable amount of patience to truly watch them. If you however take the time to "sit through" them, you might be in for some surprises. Not only did the film makers create images which stood the test of time surprisingly well - especially considering how much time has passed since their creation; but which also make you wonder how they were created in the first place, taking into account the limited techniques film crews had to utilize at the beginning of cinematography.

So in a way this is my most frustrating list of films, since there are definately rewards to be gained by watching these entries - but, nevertheless, it can be tedious at times as well.

Although I have already incoporated some of the very best Asian movies cinema has to offer in my best of-lists of a decade there are plenty of films that are more than worthy to be discovered. The reason why I started a new series of listings is simply that many Asian movies are very different of what we came to know of from American or European cinema. To fully appreciate the films on this list you should be open-minded because some of the craziness that asian directors think of goes way beyond that of what Western movie makers churn out every year. But it is exactly that often groundbreaking craziness which makes movies from Asia that much fun.

Since I have already created lists concerning the lesser enjoyable movie output from the west, I decided to do something similar concerning movies from Asia.

I do not mean to say that the pictures on this list are an absolute waste of time. Some of them make great B-pictures or are just ridiculously entertaining - at least if you like to think of yourself as someone with an ancquired taste. Others, well, others don't have any redeeming quality whatsoever and are simply bad.

On a side note, I am very much aware that movies from Asia (especially Eastern Asia) can often be quirky, strange or just downright different. I took that into account upon giving my verdict, but more than often I stumbled across a movie which, at least for me, just didn't cut it.

So, have fun browsing through what I, at least in some cases, consider to be the bad, boring, superfluous and/or way over the top kind of movies and don't hesitate to let me know if you agree or disagree with my choices.

This list is dedicated to those pictures that are not much talked about or sometimes even sneered at. Most of these movies were made on a small budget but can be very entertaining nevertheless. That is, if you generally dig B-pictures of the sci-fi or horror genre, for example. Some of the entries might be considered trash, but I assure you that you will find only the hilarious ones here. So, if you are in the mood for a somewhat different movie that does not necessarily follow mainstream rules, chances are that you will find here what you are looking for.

As usual, don't hesitate to leave a comment if you feel up to it.

Although I have already incoporated some of the very best Asian movies cinema has to offer in my best of-lists of a decade there are plenty of films that are more than worthy to be discovered. The reason why I started a new series of listings is simply that many Asian movies are very different of what we came to know of from American or European cinema. To fully appreciate the films on this list you should be open-minded because some of the craziness that asian directors think of goes way beyond that of what Western movie makers churn out every year. But it is exactly that often groundbreaking craziness which makes movies from Asia that much fun.

As ususal, don't hesitate to leave a comment if you feel up to it.

Since I have already created lists concerning the lesser enjoyable movie output from the west, I decided to do something similar concerning movies from Asia.

I do not mean to say that the pictures on this list are an absolute waste of time. Some of them make great B-pictures or are just ridiculously entertaining - at least if you like to think of yourself as someone with an ancquired taste. Others, well, others don't have any redeeming quality whatsoever and are simply bad.

On a side note, I am very much aware that movies from Asia (especially Eastern Asia) can often be quirky, strange or just downright different. I took that into account upon giving my verdict, but more than often I stumbled across a movie which, at least for me, just didn't cut it.

So, have fun browsing through what I, at least in some cases, consider to be the bad, boring, superfluous and/or way over the top kind of movies and don't hesitate to let me know if you agree or disagree with my choices.

Have you ever been in a situation when you read a flims title or summary or saw a movie poster, a trailer or just some screen shots of a movie (especially of B-films) and you thought: "Wow, this looks like heaps of fun!"? You rented that film and after one and a half hours (at the most) you got that nagging feeling that someone stole that exact amount of precious quality lifetime from you. Well, basically this list is about those films. No matter how reduced your expectations had already been, no matter how much you care for flicks of that genre in general - these films did not even meet those expectations, not by a far shot. Even as a fan of trash films you refuse to acknowledge the existence of this list's entries, simply because a good trash film, even considering its manifold shortcomings, is at least fun. So beware, the films on this list are everything - except fun. Needless to say, I had quite some fun in doing this list, although it brought back painful memories.

Here they are. The movies I consider to be the absolute best motion pictures from 1900-1919.

One little thing on a personal note: I do not think that most of the movies I put on this list are, what you would generally call, "enjoyable". Those are silent films we are talking about here, after all, and sadly, as I have found out for myself, it takes some considerable amount of patience to truly watch them. If you however take the time to "sit through" them, you might be in for some surprises. Not only did the film makers create images which stood the test of time surprisingly well - especially considering how much time has passed since their creation; but which also make you wonder how they were created in the first place, taking into account the limited techniques film crews had to utilize at the beginning of cinematography.

So in a way this is my most frustrating list of films, since there are definately rewards to be gained by watching these entries - but, nevertheless, it can be tedious at times as well.
