04:40 pm: Plan 9 From Outer Space
I'd heard this was the worst scifi movie ever, read about it, seen bits of it on TV, but never actually watched it. I put it on my queue from Netflix and it finally came to the top. It really should have stayed at the bottom.

You should have gotten Ed Wood instead. That's actually quite a good movie, and it has enough clips from Wood's work to show you exactly what it is that so richly deserves remaining unseen.

It had that on the same disc, but I was sufficiently repelled at the end of Plan 9 that I just stuck the disc back in the mailer and returned it.

Ah. Bad move. Ed Wood really is worth seeing, not least for Martin Landau's extraordinary performance as Bela Lugosi near the end of his life, forgotten and in poverty, but still with remarkable presence.

Okay, as soon as Netflix has it back, I'll put it on the list again, near the top.

Hi. When I discovered Ed Wood jr. and his films, I realize how much the guy did with ten bucks. Guess he thought that with tricks he could made a movie, but often he didn't grasp the situation : low budget films must stick to love affairs, drama between the lovers, things about daily life (a thing most women loves). But he was a science fiction fan, so he did what he loves: science fiction. We know good scifi could be made with a trillion dollars and the success is assured.
So I saw the films with that in mind : Zero dollars. Like myself, when buying my first handy cam, thinking it was easy to make a movie, but when finishing it , it hardly could be understood what was all about.
We see that in old films, when there was more enthusiasm than everything else. Guess we should see the efforts and their end results, instead of making a comparison with million dollar productions.Bye.
