Plan 9 from Outerspace, by Andy

Seriously????? Is there anything good about Plan 9 From Outerspace (other than its mercifully short 78 minutes)? Is it not the model every film should follow on what NOT to do in a film? Seriously...bad plot, acting, production values, special effects, audio, and did I mention acting and plot? Did anyone associated with that movie have the cognitive dissonance necessary to allow them to think what they had created was worth showing to the public?

I can see why it's a cult-classic for comically bad movies. It really must be the worst movie ever made. And that said, I'm not going to dignify the movie's badness by discussing it any further. I'm shaking my head just thinking about it. It has, for me, become the movie by which I will judge all other movies (which I'm sure will then make me an optimist).

It also inspired an odd little version of Unix. One of the guys at work has been playing with it for about 6 months...
