  1. I'm going to suggest one of the worst movies I have ever seen. I don't know if anyone here has seen it, but it's worth watching. Despiser, in a nutshell, is about a graphic artist who has to stop a monster from escaping purgatory by blowing it up with stolen nukes. 90% of the movie looks like it was made with a Nintendo 64 and it also has a ton of action sequences involving poorly drawn cars (Cars/highways filled with lava apparently exist in purgatory) and some some amazing one liners. The IMBD reviews are all from sock puppets who praise it, but the movie is dreadful. Just to tell you one more time, it's about a monster who needs to steal nukes to blow up purgatory. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0349345/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

  2. Fun fact about this movie: The credited director, Thomas Lee, doesn't exist.


    This was originally directed by Walter Hill (maker of "48 Hrs.," "Red Heat" and "Bullet to the Head"), but was shelved for a long while. During that time, the director of "A Nightmare on Elm Street 2: Freddy's Revenge" (AKA the single most homoerotic horror movie to get a mainstream release) did reshoots and Francis Ford Coppola re-edited the movie, apparently still weaning himself from taking on projects to pay off "One from the Heart." According to an unsourced claim on Wikipedia, people believe little of Hill's work is left in the film.


    The end result displeased Walter Hill, and he would've used the Director's Guild's pseudonym Alan Smithee, except that this was happening after "An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn," and they had abandoned the name, likely because it couldn't be taken seriously after being involved with a Joe Eszterhas movie. Thusly, this is the first movie to have a pseudonymous director not credited as Alan Smithee.


    Jeez, that took a while to write. And man, there are a lot of HDTGM-worthy movies I mentioned up there.


    Didn't this keep getting swapped from director to director at first? I thought it went past like 8 guys.
