I found 19 of them that I had seen, most of them the older movies. And I completely agree with the concept that a lot of the older titles are there because of idiot hipsters voting on this stuff after watching MST3K episodes.

RC, I agree with you on the cut-off date you give. I have seen movies made after 1990, and a lot of them were not worth my time. Most stuff prior to that year, I know fairly well and enjoy greatly. If I mention a movie older than 1990 to most of the people I know, I get blank looks. Yeah, folks, let's just ignore nearly 90 years worth of cinema because your first theater experience was Home Alone or Pretty Woman.

It's damn frustrating when on the facebook thing-there is a page called Psychotronic Movies-not Mike Weldon-as much as I think Weldon is a dick-he does know his s**t-and there was a "favorite actor letter K"-I was the ONLY one to list Karloff. NONE of these punks knew about f**king KARLOFF!!!  hot

Not many apparently

#98 Troll 2 - It is what it is. Not good, but fun to watch.
#95 Blubberella - It was kinda fun to first watch BloodRayne 3 and then this one.
#76 Battlefield Earth - I had so much facepalm watching that movie that my head hurts to this day.
#57 Alone in the Dark - First Boll movie I watched and I still think it's fun.
#18 Daniel der Zauberer - Now here's a movie that should not exist.
#16 House of the Dead - Second Boll movie I watched and I like it even more than AitD. Maybe it's because of Jürgen Prochnow (Got a soft spot for everyone that was in Das Boot). Unfortunately Boll rereleased the movie as a "funny version" that just didn't work.
#5 Disaster Movie - For some reason I own it on DVD...bought it out of curiousity cheap from a super market. The film was unwatchable garbage, but I kinda liked the "I'm f**king Matt Damon" music video included in the extras.

Don't know if you've read Stephen King's Danse Macabre, but it's worth the read.

He talks about how modern audiences don't fully appreciate older movies because they focus too much on the visuals.

Specifically, an audience in the '50's (for example) would accept the 50's visuals as being par for the course, and as such, keyed on the story.  The story may, or may not, have been "good," but the visual FX was not the "Focus" of the film.

Younger modern audiences look at older films and say, "That's not realistic."  Of course, at the time, that was neither possible nor even the goal.  But, at the time, it did not matter because nothing was visually realistic in film.

It's an interesting lens to use to examine difference audience groups.  As such, what is "good" or "bad" as voted by an Internet voting group is influenced by their own context.  I suspect a 1950's film goer would see BATTLEFIELD EARTH (for example) very, very differently than a modern voter.  By contrast, how is THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL seen by modern audiences?

And, another point. Modern audiences are preoccupied with plot points being "correct."  Older movies freely dove into "fiction" and did not worry with the audience accepting the premise. 

So, contemporary audiences view movies and delight in pointing out "That cannot happen" or "they would never do that." Since older movie makers worried less about factual basis when they were clearly in the realm of fiction, older movies are going to be judge more harshly.

And groups, movie advocates,  not knowing who Karloff is?  Shameful.  Purely shameful.

The whole point of fantasy films-for me at least-is to suspend belief and become immersed into the unreal-to escape our fact bound world and dive into a world of the unreal and fantastic. Like Sinbad-to explore the unknown and marvel at it's wonders.

Wow a lot of them clearly come from MST3K. What happened to Pocket Ninjas?

The top film was interesting because it's a Bollywood movie that Bangledeshis for some reason found offensive thus hundreds of that left angry one star reviews on IMDB. It was impossible to tell whether the film was actually bad or not, all of the reviews I saw were of a political nature.

I know that Daniel der Zauberer (2004) was intentionally downvoted after some guys started a Internet petition/campaign. The reason being Daniel Küblböck who came in second in a "Germany Got Talent" type of show. In regards of annoying popularity (he was like the goofy version of Justin Bieber and Miley Cyrus combined), his 15 minutes of fame consisted of a few cheesy pop songs and the movie Daniel der Zauberer.
The movie was indeed awful but it only got attention and many downvotes because of that campaign.

Either I am not living up to my potential, or I am not living down to my potential. Of the IMDB Bottom 100, I have seen only . . . Drum roll please . . .

84. Santa Claus Conquers the Martians.

Yes, it is a product of the '60's, 1964 to be exact.
Yes, it is a film made for kids.
But, I enjoyed it.

It also has the distinction of being Pia Zadora's motion picture debut.
