Worst movie of all time?

September 9, 2017 | By | 2 Replies More

For many years, I was under the impression that the 1959 film, “Plan 9 from Outer Space,” was the worst movie of all time.  It is very good at being bad:

But I was just introduced to “Turkish Star Wars,” a move with Spanish subtitles. I don’t know anything about whether this movie ever hit the big screen anywhere, but it is quite entertaining for its many failures. It’s difficult to think of any aspect of film-making that this movie doesn’t fail at.  From Wikipedia:

Dünyayı Kurtaran Adam (The Man Who Saved the World) is a 1982 Turkish science fantasy adventure film also known as Turkish Star Warsbecause of its notorious use of unauthorized footage from Star Wars and other movies worked into the film.

Upon its initial release, the film was panned by critics for its incoherent storyline, poor performances, and use of stock footage and music from other films.

Despite this (or possibly due to this), the film has gained a significant cult following over the years. Louis Proyect of Rec Arts Movie Reviews called the film “classic midnight movie fun.”[2] Phil Hall of Film Threat gave the film a perfect 5 stars, calling it “jaw-droppingly insane … a film that makes criticism moot.”
