No, Plan 9 is at first a big bore.

1. Then what?

The total barren film.

2. A total barren film? Barren of what exactly?

Watching it only for the laughable scenes is also far from being fun. The best thing one can do with Wood's films is to watch the "famous highlights" on You Tube, or somewhere else.

3. How do those two sentences not contradict one another?

But I prefer it to laugh with a film, and not about a film.

4. So you admit the movie invokes laughter...

1. Don't know what you mean with "Then what" . It' s simply at first a boring film for me.

2. A barren film means in Germany that the film has nothing to offer. Boring and badly made. Unwatchable for me.

3. I don't see a contradiction.

4. Yes, it does, but not enough to make it entertaining. A comedy (which at least intends to be funny) which has only 2 or 3 good jokes, but is otherwise boring and unfunny is also not fun to watch. Like so many of the Italian western comedies.

What's the problem? Wood is famous for being a bad director. I simply think he indeed is.

I apologize, stanton. I thought you took a low blow with the comment. Just a misunderstanding. I shouldn't have been so defensive.

As for Wood, he shouldn't belong among the very worst for camp appeal of his work imo. I would argue there are many directors out there who are incapable of doing anything productive - ironically or not. We obviously have different criteria here.

No problem.
 
Different criteria are absolutely ok.

And it is better to talk about a probable misunderstanding than to keep a grudge. My English is not the best in the world, and sometimes I write a bad English while translating German expressions to directly.

After watching millions of movies I have come to the conclusion that
the obscure director Sergio Leone and the drivel called Once Upon A  time in the west.
are the most blatant of Turkeys.



AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH!
JUST JOKING


MORTON ONCE TOLD ME I COULD NEVER BE LIKE HIM, NOW I UNDERSTAND WHY

I don't pay much attention to directors unless they are good, so I can't tell you who directed these films, but here are my worst movies of all-time (that I watched all the way through):

Non Westerns:

The Book of Eli (with Denzel Washington)
Home Fries (with Drew Barrymore)

Westerns:

The Quick and the Dead (Gene Hackman)
Wild Bill (Jeff Bridges)


There are three types of people in the world, my friend: those who can add, and those who can't.
