Great fun - I loved reading about the movies I have actually seen.

If, like me, you enjoy movies that are so bad that they are good then you will find this an essential reference book to increase your DVD collection. Includes many movies that I have never heard of before but will now search for on Amazon and eBay. Although my own personal favourite - 'Plan 9 from Outer Space' - only got an honourable mention. (Edward D. Wood's 'Glen or Glenda' has just moved to the top of my bad movie wish list!) I was also surprised to see that the original of Tron or Death Ra ...more

Some of the most awful movies of all time are profiled in this collection of reviews, many/most of which were nominees for the annual Razzie Awards, though those awards didn't start until about 1981. As a result, some older movies are included that couldn't have ever been part of that ceremony. While the profiles of the movies are insightful and often quite funny, the book is pretty cheap-feeling and there is a horrendous waste of space within the pages. The pictures in the middle are grainy and ...more

Being somewhat a fan of B-Movies (mainly from episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000) and being a follower (but not a member) of the Razzie Awards for quite some time now, I was happy when I came across this book a few years ago at a discount book store. There are some honestly hilarious reviews included (as well as a few admittedly boring ones). My main problem with this book, however, is that I wish they would've covered more of the popular bad movies, such as Howard the Duck or Wild, Wild W ...more

The founder of the Razzie Awards, given annually the day before the Academy Award ceremony to the worst in their categories for the year, has compiled this guide to his choices for the hundred "best" bad pictures of all time. The earliest film is Maniac (AKA "Sex Maniac") (1934) and the latest is Glitter (2001). The films cover the full range of genres and are mostly U.S. made. The very few that are not were released dubbed.

Wilson writes well and made me laugh out loud repeatedly. He also made m

Entertaining, as far as snarky books go ... I enjoyed it (and it gave me some new information on cinematic turds I was previously unfamiliar with)!

Oh, so fun! Treat yourself to a bad movie soon. And may I recommend Splice? Too new for this book but I hope it sweeps the Razzies this year!
