I’m curious what movies people considered the worst to have played the marathon or otherwise good movies that weren’t good as a marathon movie.

The usual suspects are, of course: NIAGRAVATION, STAR CRYSTAL, BREAKFAST OF ALIENS and MOTIVATIONAL GROWTH.

Then, there are the not-so-bad movies that just didn't work at the 'Thon like: WORLD OF TOMORROW, DEMONLOVER and, arguably, THE FABULOUS BARON MUNCHAUSEN (Cinema 2 apparently rebelled; Cinema 1 just didnt' care). I happen to really like TOMORROW and BARON, and DEMONLOVER is interesting if you are familiar with that kind of Euro arthouse picture.

Really depends what you mean by worst movie.
I mean Have Rocket Will Travel is horrible but fun to watch. I liked Baron Munchausen and The Bed sitting Room, but back when they showed a lot of folks did not. I still swear that Cinema 1 hated both, but memory fades.
For me it might be the legendary lost film of the marathon, the overly arty Hu-Man.
Best of all, until someone finds a print of the damn thing you can't prove me wrong. Tongue
 

I can't complain but sometimes I still do. Life's been good to me so far.

I was thinking about movies that were bad and not really fun to watch and movies that were otherwise good but didn’t work as a marathon movie.
