    Well, let's see. In Plan 9, Ed Wood's aliens come to Earth to raise the dead, to prevent mankind from developing a weapon that would turn sunlight into fire, and ultimately destroy the universe.

    In AOTC, a pair of space samurai follow a space ninja to a scene of massive pyrotechnics.

    "yeah it is scary that they are comparable, and that the dialogue is pretty damn close in terms of redundance, grammar and quality."

    You mean close when you misquote AOTC's dialogue, right? ;)

    Anyway, Plan 9 was a masterpiece, I don't care what you Ed Wood bashers say. That man had vision.

    A similarly bad film, (some would say, WORSE), was ROBOT_MONSTER.

    [image=http://www.stomptokyo.com/badmoviereport/pics/R/rm2.jpg]

    Where a man in a gorilla suit wearing a Deep sea diver helmet, controls a lethal device that consists of a World War 2 Radio on a Trestle Table.

    Could this:

    Be the Source of this?

    I have to respectfully disagree with the idea that "Plan 9 from Outer Space" represents the rock bottom of sci-fi/fantasy films. That award goes to "Santa Claus Conquers the Martians."

    AOTC may have been heavily influenced by "Santa Claus", but Lucas could not equal the unrelenting rottenness of that anti-classic.

    i just read that they are doing a remake of SCCTM.

    The Palpatine character of the prequel trilogy draws heavily from the mythical Santa Claus figure of SCCTM.


    The only way a sequel to SCCTM could do the original justice is if it gets a production budget of less than five million dollars.

    and of course they have to bring back Pia Zadora.

    Pia Zadora has the distinction of being one of the only actresses to have been in two different films that are both valid contenders for the worst movie ever made. The Lonely Lady is the most astoundingly bad thing I've ever seen.

    You quoted AOTC like this:
    "I don't like sand. It's rough and scratchy. But you're not, you're soft and smooth. Not like sand."

    But the actual line is like this:

    "I don't like sand. It's rough and coarse, and it gets everywhere. Not like here. Here everything's soft...and smooth."

    It's not Plan 9, but do you think Petey Wheatstraw, title character of the 1977 blaxsploitation classic, is at least as intimidating as Mace Windu?

    You know,it's just too bad there hasn't been any Plan 9 From Outer Space action figures,just so you can have both films fight it out in toy form. You could have Tor Johnson battle Jango Fett or have Vampira go up against Padme!

    Plan 9 has nothing on Manos.

    (Sung to the tune of the Flintstones' theme:)

    Manos! Mighty Manos!
    He's an omnipresent deity!
    From the! World beneath us!
    He stars in the world's worst movie!
    Let's ride down the long and dusty street!
    Torgo has big knees and cloven feet!
    When you! Watch this movie!
    Have an "oh my God it hurts" time,
    A "make it stop" time,
    You'll have a "kill me" time!

    :p

    You can't really blame DrEvazan for not remembering an unmemorable line. It's not worth remembering!

    It seems that the Sith have returned. Tokyo and DrEvazan, but which one is the master and which is the apprentice?

    The only thing funnier than one AOTC disliker (that's better than basher right?) making uncalled for snide remarks is two AOTC dislikers patting each other on the back for their complementary snide remarks.

    Yeah I know, this is a humor thread. I'm seriously laughing! at you, not with you.

    MWAH HA HA HA HA HA HA!

    why should I?
    The post you just posted didn't! lol

    Oh, am I not allowed to LAUGH?????
    You really are determined to take all of the joy out of everyone's life aren't ya?
    Some people just aren't happy unless everyone's as sour and negative as they are.

    Besides, I've got previous posts in this thread that dealt with the topic. :)

    I'm still a bit confused by people who come to this forum who don't like AOTC. You didn't like the film? Fine. Your opinion is as valid as any. So what the hell are you doing here?

    A few years back I got dragged to the theater to see the Jack Nicholson film entitled "As Good As It Gets." I thought it sucked. You want to know how many times I've seen it since? Zero! You want to know how many times I've visited the As Good As It Gets website (assuming one exists)? That's right, zero again! I don't know any of the characters' names. I can't quote any lines from the film. I really don't remember the plot of the thing. In fact, I haven't thought about the film once since seeing until this moment.

    I haven't sought out an As Good As It Gets message board so that I could post incorrect quotations from the film and then complain about how bad the script writing is. I also would never have considered posting a message replete with misspellings, poor grammar, bad punctuation, and a lack of appropriate capital letters about how I could have written a much better script.

    Bashers, use a little common sense. You can do that, you know. I don't have common sense copyrighted. You're allowed to use it, too! If you hated AOTC -- and, as I said, your opinion is as valid as any -- why not go find a message board for a movie you liked?

    Do you folks repeatedly read and analyze books you don't like? Do you go to restaurants, find a food item that nauseates you, and order it over and over again?

    I know you've probably already got your cursor positioned over the "reply" link so that you can post some inane rebuttal to this message. Before you hit that mouse button, why not walk away from the computer for 10 minutes and go do something you enjoy instead?

    You're welcome.
