What is the worst movie you have ever seen? To me, it was "Battlefield Earth". Below is a review which expresses my feelings for that movie: About 5 minutes into the movie I found that my jaw had dropped to my lap and the onslaught of incomprehensible badness just wouldn't pause even for a brief moment to allow me to secure my jaw back in place. Battlefield Earth provoked me like no cinematic experience ever has. The intricate matrix behind the weave of negative energy, the sheer vastness of it, had triggered a physical response. Then it struck me: How many movies have tried and failed to trigger such a response? I've been exposed to so much strong, thought-provoking, heartfelt human drama, and felt so much that I wanted to scream, but I've always managed to tether if not the emotional response, then at least the physical. But Battlefield Earth made me scream in agony. The dimensions of its torturous badness are simply incomprehensible. It truly IS the worst movie ever made and that is an important landmark. Plan 9 From Outer Space, Glen or Glenda, Jail Bait, Bride of the Monster - they're bad, oh man they're bad, but the make you giggle. Battlefield Earth is bad in a scary way. It had $22M and serious studio and distribution backing it. Every nauseating 45 degree tilted shot (i.e. 95% of the movie), every inexplicably drawn out dramatic slo-mo action shot of non-dramatic non-action, the demise of a wooden cow, every cringeworthy piece of dialogue, every gaping black hole of plot antimatter... is for REAL. Planned, executed, approved and widely distributed. They wanted you to see this sculpture of crusty snot. The bad guys in this movie, the Psychlos, fail miserably to convey evil. But the movie as a whole is shockingly successful in conveying it; This pitiful movie is the essence of pure evil. It invokes vertigo, nausea and pain like no theme park will. It is the ultimate bad experience. All artistic merits herein are immeasurable even on a negative scale. In the beggining of the movie I thought "well, an awful start, but it will get better at some point." But it never did. In fact, it got worse, and worse, so bad that until they showed up those fighter jets I was still confident that something good would happen, because they couldn´t have made such a horrible movie, I thought. My g/f likes sci-fi movies and she fell asleep 20 minutes into the movie. I was disgusted and I could see that the other viewers couldn´t believe that they actually paid to watch that. In the end, people at first were silent, in utter disbelief, but soon got up shouting and cursing Travolta. It was SAD.
