In response, Gregory suggests that what passes for normal life in New York in the late 1970s is more akin to living in a dream than it is to real life"
Maybe it is a matter of perspective. I must admit that I found Woody Allen's Manhattan almost equally tiresome. But then again, I watched both movies as a young guy fresh out of Missouri, long before I spent many years working in Manhattan. I may watch them again to see if my views have changed with experience.

I loved that show! I will never forget the movie where martians kidnapped Santa and two little kids...who knows (or really cares) which flick it really was - the MST guys' comments made me laugh all through the campy movie! The tackier the movie, the better it was on MST!!!

Are they out on DVD? Boxed set??

Worse than walking out on a movie, I fell asleep at "Cabin Boy" starring Chris somebody. Really stupid, but my 8 year old boy loved it.
Some of the movies you folks hated I loved. Different stokes.
I read somewhere that Michael Murphy's (?) wife divorced him after doing Austin Powers. She got sick of that stupid, stupid Austin Powers accent, too. Smart girl.

Some bad movies are fun. Some are not.
"Fun" bad movies:
Santa Claus Conquers the Martians (with or without MST3K)
Eegah! (with or without MST3K)
Van Helsing
The Day After Tomorrow
Prince of Space (MST3K)

"Bad" bad movies
The Avengers
Incredibly Strange Creatures Who Stopped Living and Became Mixed-Up Zombies -- bad even with MST3K!
Manos: The Hands of Fate -- bad even with MST3K!
A Boy and His Dog
King Arthur (with Clive OWen and Keira Knightley)

The "bad" bad ones are just horrible to try to sit through. The "fun" ones are badly done but fun to make fun of or laugh at.

You're right Kronk. Some movies are so bad you can make fun of them and still enjoy that. Others, you expect a lot out of because they have good people involved and still turn out awful. Those are just painful to watch.

My wife and I both hated it. We stayed because we thought the other liked it. I knew 10 minutes into it who would live and who would die. Awful

Oh, I forgot about Saw. The one I watched was truly worthless. The other horrible horror movie I can't get out of my head is that wretched Hostel. I will remember the #$%%^ thing until my last minute! And I agree that Borat was totally idiotic. I'm glad I've missed a whole lot of these others--that is the reward for seeing so few movies!

Balls of Fury. Absolutely stupid. A little funny in a sophomoric way, but below your intelligence.

It entertained me on the airplane. If I hadn't spent 8 bucks and was bored out of my damn mind I would have turned it off

Man Of The Year with Robin Williams was one long crap smear from the opening scene to the closing credits.
