never heard of this until I saw the link on the front page earlier - http://www.badmovies.org/movies/gymkata/ , after reading the review I thought I'd check it but it only seems to be available on region 1 DVD which is no good to me because I can only play region 2, however the whole thing has been upped in good quality on youtube. I just watched it, awesomely bad! definitely has to be seen if you haven't seen it

(this link will stream all 9 parts in succession, no need to click about)

thanks for the heads up on this Andrew, hilarious film!

It's hard not to love a movie that combines martial arts and gymnastics, then constantly places suspiciously-gymnastic items around so that the hero can use his powers.


What European village would be complete without a pommel horse in the center courtyard?

Probably one of the most ridicules films of all time. A ton of laughs! Mondo Movie Podcast did a bit about this show a while back. Worth listening to.

 Buggedout I will admit to being probably the only person who ever saw this in a theatre when it came out ~ the place was full!

My favourite bad movie of all time ~ Andrew's review of it just makes it better.  TeddyR

Back in the 80s I worked in a video rental store.  The manager was a 20-something airhead who probably got the job because she was good-looking (in sort of a trashy "needs lots of make-up to look good" way).  Anyway, her ignorance of movies was obvious when she thought the name of this movie was "Jim Carter", like the former President . . . I wonder where she is today?  Probably weighs 225 pounds and has 7 kids.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
