When I was growing up, I watched a lot of “B” science fiction movies, including Battle Beyond the Stars, Ice Pirates, Krull, and Spacehunter. These movies were pretty bad but fun to watch.
Krull was being shown on Encore this morning; it really is a dreadful movie, but that didn’t stop me from watching it again. 🙂
The SciFi Channel (or now the SyFy Channel *shudder*) should really take a note: it is possible to have bad “B” science fiction movies that are actually watchable. Most of the SyFy movies are pretty bad; I can’t even make it through them. Maybe that’s because they have more horror (or more precisely, gore) than scifi; that seems to be the trend these days. I really don’t like walking into Blockbuster and having to search through all of the horror movies to find a decent scifi movie; wish they’d break them into two different sections.
Having said all that, I’d really like to see Ice Pirates again. 🙂
