I think there are a whole load of modern "B Movies", but they tend to be straight to DVD rip-offs of an A film title. Regetably I've seen Atlantic Rim [aka Not Pacific Rim] and seen a DVD called Lord of the Elves....

I’ve seen them too. They don’t even reach the minimum standard of ‘so bad they’re good’. They are simply bad copycat drivel and a complete waste of time.

I do not disagree. I didn't get all the way through Atlantic Rim. At least Lord of the Elves had Teal'c

I am suprised that "Sharknado" has not appeared yet.

incidentally chrome won't let me share youtubes on XP any more. They have removed the 'share' button. Anyone else suffering this?
(and before it starts yes I have deleted cookies and no I am not interested in linux) :)

Have you tried a different browser? - Firefox, Vivaldi, Opera, Pale Moon - to name a few I also use

Yes it is fine in firefox, and Brave
It is specifically chrome apparently trying to force people off youtube on XP. It coincided with the 'end of youtube support' popups but I suspect from this they are also moving into proactive debilitating.

The Monster that Challenged the World 1957 . About giant prehistoric snails released from from state of dormancy in deep lake bottom by an earthquake . These giant snails that have an appetite for everything including people . This is actually a pretty good science fiction horror film and the monster effects even today, still impresses. :cool:(y)

The Beast of Yucca Flats 1961. Staring Tor Johnson( Plan Nine From Outer Space) Is about a scientist turned into a rampaging monster via atomic radiation. Though this film is not quite good as Plan 9, Tor Johnson does manage to turn in what could called a memorable acting performance. Unfortunately , The film didn't fare well with either critics or movie goer and , it was also Tor Johnson last film. :D

I used to think that Manos Hands of Fate was the worst until I watched Roller Gator last night.

The Incredible Melting Man 1975 . An astronaut arrives at the Planet Saturn, catches a virus which causes his flesh to liquefy . There is no cure for his terminal condition , all he can do is slow down the meting process by devouring human flesh. This film has it all, bad directing , bad writing bad acting , bad editing . This film is an atrocious mess of movie and not even fun to watch.

I used to spend many a fun weekend watching terrible movies with a friend, those ones you used to find in Woolworths that sound a little bit similar to the big releases.

Sadly that friendship ended, but in its honour I offer IMDB - Lavalantula

Worth watching if only for it answers the question what are the Police Academy cast doing now.
