I am not to sure about this film, I was watching it on netflix last night. Well 1/2 of the movie anyway. Then I went off to do something else. lol

I will try to watch it again soon, but I would love to hear what others think about this movie.

B movie classic in my mind are the following:

1. Rocky Horror Picture Show

2. Killer Klowns from Outer Space

3. Attack of the Killer Tomatos

bought this cheap on dvd, I found it to be too silly, think it could have been a classic B movie if it had taken itself a bit more seriously imo

ps love Rocky Horror

I wouldn't call it a classic. A lot of its humor (and even more of it's sad attempts at humor) won't hold up with an audience that didn't see the 2008 US elections.

Also doesn't really hold up as a so bad it's good or good if you're drinking trainwreck like Super Mario Brothers or Battleship. It's entirely too obvious the creators knew they were making a terrible movie.

I agree, except I paid retail. It could've been very good if it didn't try so hard to be campy. Sure I'd watch it a few dozen more times but it doesn't compare to classic 'B' movies like Dark Star.

I watched it on NetFlix streaming a few months ago...

Managed to get through the whole thing...,

But I think mainly because it was after 2am and I was half-asleep at the time.

Watched it when i came out. The trailer looked great and the idea was dumb enough to be interesting, but the acting/storyline was bad. Shattner bad.

Yeah, I'll regret this, but I liked it. Stupid and crazy B movie that it was. Campy and dumb as it ended up. I liked it. I'll go sit in the corner now.

Nothing wrong with liking it, I liked most of it, too.

I just don't think it'll become a classic because it requires some pretty specific cultural context, so it won't hold up 10 or 15 years from now like the movies the OP lists.

I thought it was hilarious. I also realize most people won't get or appreciate the humor.

It also has the classic 50's sci-fi ending and morality play.
