But, worst movies ever made? Not even close. Especially in the sci-fi genre, it gets a lot worse than these three.
What Improbus said.
They aren't Plan 9 From Outer Space, but given their context, they are up there.
I remember sitting there watching Episode I and thinking that I hadn't seen something that was as big a commercial release being that terrible.
From Lucas' dialogue- which is laugh out bad- to those annoying screen slides he does when the action changes locale....it's nearly unwatchable.
I know we all love movies and we can all say we know bad when I see it....but these are atrocious at a level rarely seen for major studio releases.
