Give "cheese rating" if necessary.

Also, favorite "cheese cake" should be mentioned. Mine is the Russian chick in "Alien Apocalypse."

The one with Lorenzo Lamas and the dinosaurs.

That was Raptor Island, right?

All of the Cube series.

Then there's that space cowboy drama from the buffy dude - what's it called? Felicity?

Good Christ that show is fucking garbage. Didn't take 'em long to get the DVD into the 99 cent bin at China Mart.

Hahahahaha you actually watched that? I wondered to myself when I heard about it, "who the hell would watch that crap?"

Manimal sounds like about the stupidist idea for a series ever. I also had high expectations by sci-fi when I first heard about it but was promptly let down when I finally was able to watch it.

Alien Apocolypse was actually one of my favorites. It was uber cheezzie... but I'm a big Bruce Campbell fan, so I let that slide.

I don't remember any Russian chick in that flick. Where was she in the flick?

Edit: Ok... I know who you mean. Your talking about the chick in the skins. Her name was Busy.

They didn't even have the decency to cast a hot chick in the CIA role. Plus, while she was actually kinda cute, having her run around in khakis and a fleece-lined jacket didn't help. How much do you think they spent on that movie? About $20 plus craft services?

I avoid their cheese-fi as much as possible.

I tried to like Manticore because I have had a plot idea kicking around in my head for a while that was similar, but Manticore su-huuuuucked for the 5 minutes I watched of it.

Classic movie garbage.

IIRC those are foreign imports and not technically "Sci-Fi Originals" (i.e., would have been dierct-to-video if we hadn't bought them so cheap ). [I could be wrong about that...] Besides, I really like the Cube movies (the ones I've seen so far)...


I'd have to vote Man with the Screaming Brain ... even the inimitable Bruce Campbell and usually-entertaining Ted Raimi couldn't save that turkey.

It wasn't cheese - it was pure mold.

how can scifi come up with such amazing crap as "mansquito" and "el chupacabra" yet do something relatively decent like "battlestar galactica"???

I can't find the thread (I looked), but IIRC Dolomite prides himself on detesting Firefly, a show many of us here absolutely love... he composed a wonderfully entertaining rant to that effect.

FWIW, I wish it was available in the cheapie bin.

I just finally upgrade my cable and got that channel. I was looking through the lineup thinking it was cool to finally get that channel. That channel sucks balls. I've yet to see one show that keeps my interest.

They had some "Spider" movies that really sucked, there was one where the characters came upon a crashed space shuttle, and the shuttle wasn't much bigger than a Cessna 172.

Frankenfish was the worst (the 15 minutes of it that I watched anyway). Manticore and Painkiller Jane were both pretty bad too.

Monster (the one about the monster from the 1950's movie that came to life and started eating people) was OK, but only because it had several highly suggestive scenes.

You know Cap'n Mal would shoot you for that!

I kinda liked mansquito and raptor island.

Man with the screaming brain I thought was hilarious. But I was drunk. Thats the key to watching scifi's original movies.

Their TV shows I love. Stargate and BSG. That triangle mini-series was ok. But their saturday night movies

But I still watch them for the most part if the HBO movie blows. So I guess their marketing does have some logic.

There was another one that was pretty bad too. I can't think of the name of it though. It was the one where this girl hitched a ride on a one man cargo transport that was headed from Mars to Earth. Since the ship was only designed for one person and the cargo, the additional weight of the second person threw off the trajectory of the ship and the guy had to blow the girl out the airlock. Then at the end he was being prosecuted for murder, but they turned him into this prophet who was a symbol of opposition to the corporate tyrany (like a second Jesus). That one sucked pretty bad too. I only watched it all the way through because the remote was all the way over on the coffee table.

Nope. I like some of them them, too. Besides, SciFi shows "Battlestar Galactica", which I like.

Anyway, I chose "other" because I couldn't make up my mind if Raptor Island or Frankenfish sucked worse.

I thought Manticore was actually pretty good, outside of the shitty props. What were those things that they were carrying that were supposed to be M16's.

Didn't see Mansquito. The name alone makes me think I didn't miss much.

Quality programming costs money. I don't think the network owners are willing to invest the kind of money needed to make it a quality network.

I believe they are AKMs or AKS rifles fitted with a new dust cover that includes a carry handle. When you think about it, if that would give you a better peep sight, it actually would improve the AKM. The other shit they add just looks bad.

At least SciFi tries. They don't have a big budget. They also don't put on reality TV 24 hours a day. Some scifi is good. Some is bad. And some is so bad it is an instant cult classic.

While I haven't watched it I would have to guess that Ghost Hunters is pretty fucking dumb to the max.

All of the other made for Sci-Fi movies are a close second place.

Oh hey... wow... look... a movie thread... and a movie forum... someone should introduce these two.

This is in reference to the channel, and the movies shown thereon, not the movies specifically.

the cold equations
I would have had sex with her first before blowing her out the airlock
it was too late he waited too long while they striped the ship to lose weight he had to dump his cargo too to make up the diffrence , it was medicine and a bunch of people died

I gave my vote to Alien Apocalypse. Those fuckers tricked all of us Bruce Campbell fans into thinking we would see a cheezy, yet enjoyable flick. No fucking way. The only reason I didn't turn it off was I was HOPING it would get better. It didn't .

The only saving grace was the shot at the beginning that showed Portland, OR completely annihilated. God this town sucks. Fuggin' hippies.
