never really understood the hate tbh... I mean, it's not just my fav Lynch movie, it's probably in my all time top 10 movies (or hovering close to)

Lynch lost me with LOST HIGHWAY and INLAND EMPIRE. can't get into those 2 at all... IE is so badly made? almost like it was shot on camcorder. nothing worked, for me... my brother loves it tho

I have yet to watch "Inland Empire"  My roommate has a much higher tolerance for sitting through bad movies than I do..and he HATES Inland Empire.

INLAND EMPIRE is not a bad movie, but it's aimed at a very specialized audience. Most people should stay away from it. It's Lynch's most surreal feature, making LOST HIGHWAY look completely straightforward.

I have seen every Terry Gilliam film ...except "Brothers Grimm"  Has anyone here seen it and is it as bad as the reviews say?

Eh, one pair in a tight turtleneck, about two or three times in this movie.... Kinda my bag....

It was more like the the totally illogical scene with the psychiatrist, or the ending reminded me of the courtroom scene in Oversexed Rugsuckers From Mars when Vernon fills in a major plot hole!  I'm like, "How the heck does this woman's testimony actually solve everybody's problems?"

hitch is my favorite director of all time and i consider him a Genius but that's my own opinion anyways he did some pretty bad ones too and he would agree with me on that if he were still alive. Murder (1930) was a pretty bad one i think, i don't remember if i said that one in the past before my apologies if i have.

there's plenty of movies that directors i like that i did movies i just didn't like and they are much loved like Taxi Driver (1976) is considered a classic by many but i have watched it a few times and i just think it's a terrible film. so i doubt there will be anyone on here who agrees with me because most people love it and oh well

i guess, if that's the case than so be it well all i got to say is that i tried watching it more than once i wanted to love it i really did but sadly i did not but Deniro is wonderful in it though

I always thought Ed Wood was a genius without talent.
That's not a cut down. I love his movies.

The only reason they are so fun to watch today is Bela Lugosi.
And Tor!
And Vampira-!
Just the feeling of family working together on a 'Our Gang' lets make a movie!

ROBERT ALTMAN : QUINTET

It's broadcast often; I first saw it on cable TV around 1980.  TCM shows it and another channel (sometimes day after day in the less lucrative midday slot).

It's not like any of his other films, mainly for story and the way it's shot. 

Boring.  Tedious.  Chilling (literally).  Mean spirited.  But ultimately pointless.  ALTMAN gets speculative dystopian.  Of course, I like it.  Sort of.

John Carpenter's Ghosts of Mars

I'm a big fan of Carpenter's movies, and I watched GHOSTS OF MARS not long ago. Honestly, I don't think it's as bad as everyone says. I actually enjoyed it, it has the same amount of cheese and tongue-in-cheek of ESCAPE FROM L.A. and VAMPIRES, in some parts actually spoofing the tropes you see in really big budget movies, and it's definitely loads of fun.

I think his movies need to be watched another time after the first one, they grow on you.

I finally broke down and watched "Dr. Moreau" 6 months ago.  I heard it was one of the worst movies ever made.  I was expecting it to be a huge pile of unwatchableness.. turns out, it was silly but entertaining.
I watched the documentary on how the production went into a huge mess that lasted over a year.  Watching it probably gave me huge expectations it was going to be a disaster. turns out watching it first gave me an appreication for how it did not totally suck. Not the best movie in the world IMHO, (we all know there are MUCH WORSE movies *cough*Godfry Ho movies)   I wouldn't reccomend it..but It doesn't suck outright.

i haven't seen it so i can't say how good or bad it is to be fair, and i really haven't seen that much of Ed Wood's films.  honestly i never thought he was that bad of a director, now the guy may have been a decent director and i have seen far worse films with lesser directors. but the reason people love him so much was cause he was a guy who thought he had actual talent and so there's love in the making of the films. and that i think helps the films be a bit better even if the movie is crap ya know? 

Plan 9 from outer space (1959) isn't the worse ever made as i've seen far worse films well that's my take on it anyways
