Honorary Permanent Worst Movie in the World

The award needs to go to the Sci Fi channel's Saturday movies. All of them. I don't know if this is where old hack writers go to die, kind of like a sci fi/fantasy elephant graveyard, but when a movie staring the excellent Katee Sackhoff from Battlestar Galactica goes this bad, you know something is very very wrong. (Oh, but the fun news is that she is going to star in a remake of THE BIONIC WOMAN, as the original, pre-Jamie Sommers bionic woman, in a sultry, bad girl role. Can't wait!)

But for now, we have ICE SPIDERS to look forward to. Seriously, where are the dudes from Mystery Science Theater 3000 when you need them?

Still buried in revisions for the book. Is a 19-page sex scene overdoing it? Sigh. These Atlanteans do everything well . . .

19 pages, wow! Maybe that's why you chose the "fantasy" genre! lol

And yes, that scifi movie looked so bad from the commercials.. I couldn't bring myself to watch it.

I loved MST 3K, but then Tom Servo and gang must have made a mark because sometimes I can hear them in my head if I'm watching a reeeeeeeally bad movie.

And I'm volunteering to be a beta reader! Rawr! ;)

Pam W beat me to it! I was going to say that the only way I could tell for sure if 19 pages was the correct amount...
And yeah, SciFi has some great stuff ("BSG") - and a lot of screamingly awful stuff.

This is toooo funny. I love the Sci Fi Channel. I loved Dog Soldiers,the remake of Dune and Children of Dune. After these movies I think the writers started smoking bad dope. The Saturday movies are terrible. I think the actors need a quick buck and that's why the agree to star.

Is it bad that I think it looks cool? I fully think it's going to be awful, but I like campy awful movies, and creature features - yum :)

Anyway - I just finished Atlantis Rising. I'm going to go back and re-read Bastien's story as some of the stuff may be clearer now.

Thanks so much!
