How would you describe your taste in and experience with bad movies?

I love the weird, bizarre and absurd. Things a bit off the beaten track like Japanese Superhero films, trash Horror VHS oddities from the 1980s and Turkish ripoffs. I've been a fan of such films since I was small, being exposed to them via Commander USA's Groovy Movies and Night Flight. Later, I got into MST3K and TNT's Monster Madness. I guess these kinds of films have always been a part of my life and I live to share them with the world.

What is the most terrible movie you have ever seen, and why?

For me, a terrible movie isn't one with bad acting, cheesy effects, ridiculous plot elements or incompetent directing. A terrible movie is one you derive no enjoyment from watching. Movies are entertainment first and for most, they exist to show us things we've never seen and make us laugh, cry or jump back in shock. What they should never, ever be is boring. That's why the most terrible movie I have ever seen is "The Davinci Code". Seriously, it was crushed under the weight of its own ponderous pretention of being something profound and thought provoking when really it was little more than a Eurotrip version of the Nicholas Cage vehicle "American Treasue" minus the action and suspense but plus lots and lots and lots of scenes of nothing happening but people trying to solve the secrets of the ages with a glorified crackerjack decoder ring.
