"Enemy Mine"

about humans fighting with lizard-type aliens (just like in '50s poverty row SciF). Humans oppress aliens just because they don't like diversity. Aside from this irritating rubbish, the movie is so inept, i never had such a good laugh in many years, taking account it was intended as a "drama". A happy ending worthy of THE worst movie i've ever seen.

Enemy Mine is, basically, blaxploitation, but some blaxploitation movie are so funny you almost forgive them for being so filled with stupidity and amateurishness at their absolute. Enemy Mine, however, is VERY long, and it's as predictable as a video game. Good aliens, bad humans. Human meets alien. Human loves alien for being so "diverse". Evil humans exploit aliens. With our hero's help, aliens revolt and are taken out of bondage in their home planet. To make the story even more convenient, alien characters are played by blacks, while humans by whites.

If you think  "Enemy Mine" was the qworst movie in the histoory of Hollywood, you've got to get out more.  Or at least, spend more nights watching videos.

Nice email address, by the way

Crap, I just saw "Beast With A Million Eyes" on AMC the other night. I just haven't been able to capture the sheer awfulness of it in words to put here. So many questions:

1. Why'd the soundtrack even bother with the toy drum? Why didn't they just scrape nails on a chalkboard instead?
2. Why wasn't narration outlawed after this movie?
3. Is that the same lagoon used in "Terror From the Year 5000!" for the same exact "peeping handyman" scene?
4. Were we supposed to LIKE any of these horrible, vicious, stupid people?

I haven't seen ENEMY MINE in a long time, but I own the Maurice Jarre score album and his music is absolutely wonderful. I also have the short story in a collection of stories that were made into films, but I haven't taken the time to read it yet.

Battlefield Earth (wanted to walk out of this)
Howard the Duck (only film I actually walked out on)
Ghost Bridgade (neat subject, bad execution)
West of Heaven, East of Hell (boring)
The Dead Hate the Living (the Fulci bumper sticker was the best part)

Enemy Mine can't decide what it wants to be.  Part of it tries to be hardcore sci-fi.  Then it tries to be buddy comedy.   Then it tries to be a children's movie.  Then it tries to be a taught actioner.  Then it tries to be uplifting.  I give it a B+ for effort but a D for execution.

But! I liked it! I really loved enemy mine when i was little! it was cool! they tried to make a house out of turtle shells! they ate gross things! there was a monster that tried to kill them! a MAN had a baby! the aliens talked funny!! i still watch it now when it comes on tv!!

i also liked howard the duck. i think i had a mini crush on howard too but im not too sure.

i never said i had good taste though.. the fact that i really liked them may only support that theyre horrible.

love colleen

This is exactly why Paquita KICKS ASS!! I also like Enemy Mine. I watched this flick constanly when I was a kid, and while I haven't seen it in years, I may have to go rent it. The monster thing was pretty cool, and the man having the baby(years before Junior!!!). But what I especially liked was that the aline talked funny..hehhehh speech impediments are funny. Maybe it was because I was a kid, maybe because I wasn't looking for hidden subtext, but I thought it rocked.

C'mon.... A lizard MALE alien gives birth to a little bugger... And the dialogue was... simply beyond classification... I aggree I don't watch bad movies with an intent, which might mean there could be many worse movies there. However, I pick the ones with a "name". Enemy Mine had big pretentions and it's dazzling for me to know there are people who actually liked it (NOT as a bad movie).

I saw the movie on TV, coupled with another that I'm still trying to remember its name. The second one was closely competing with E.M. About a bunch of super-sexy teens getting around with a big mutant crocodile stalking and killing randomly.

    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.
