I have yet to make it through a few mstk's (there pretty bad) but I made it through "monster a go go" so that's out.. :)

I think hamlet is one of those that I haven't made it through.. and it's a tough watch..

I really don't get the hate for Hamlet.  I really enjoy that one.
The riffing is really great on that one. What makes it hard to watch is the sparse production and language. And in my case, I hate Shakespeare, that play in particular.

Used to despise Batwoman, but it grew on me, now I love it.

But if I were to choose my least fave I'd go with Starfighters.  What is this movie about anyway? 

But the episode gave one of their best segments, United Servo Academy Chorus

Don't forget the Poopie Suit.

I don't know...I think I've found the more lethargic the gags written, the harder it is to get through the movie, no matter how bad it is.  This generally means that the older the episode, the less likely I am to get through it.  As bad as Manos is, the episode itself is chock full of memorable bits, and despite making the SOL crew cry at its stupidity, the gags for Invasion of the Neptune People and the infamous "Hitler Building" scene make up for a lot of its unpleasantness.  Yet, Women of the Prehistoric Planet is technically not that bad of a film, what with it actually having sets and a plot, but the gags just don't get me as well as later episodes would.  So, I'm not sure if I'm as good a judge in terms of how 'bad' the movie is, since they make some of the worst easiest to sit through, whereas when they have an off episode, it can make even an average movie hard to get through.

I did survive Blood Waters of Dr. Z uncut and unMST-ied, so I guess that one is out of the running, and that one's a pretty bad film.

I've never got the hate for the Hamlet episode either, but then again I first watched it while studying and analysing the actual film so I could watch it and technically call it revision, as well as the fact that it meant I had something dedicated to gleefully mocking what I supposed to be taking seriously which is always a plus.

I would have to say that the worst film I've seen MST3K'd so far would have to be "The Castle of Fu Manchu". I've tried to watch Starfighters and Red Zone Cuba several times and never made it all the way through, though that's actually because outside things keep on interrupting my viewings of the episodes, not because of any inability or want to actually get through the entire things. At this point though, it is quite possible that these films are so bad that God doesn't want me to watch them all the way through.

No votes for Future War? Cyborgs with attack dinosaurs, an exhooker nun, and enough pretentious moralizing to make you gag?

Yeah, but I don't think that it's ridiculous makes it the worst.  It's one thing to be dumb, it's another to be excruciating.

Tried watching Hamlet last night and it was a real struggle. Made it further than I did with Monster a-go-go though, that would be my pick for worst.

Is it just me of was Hamlet's step dad/ uncle dubbed by Ricardo Montalton ( Mr Roarke from Fantasy Island ).

I'm on team Fu Manchu.  No matter what I can't follow it.  I makes less than zero sense.

I tend to give Manos a pass - I don't consider it a finished movie.

I can't really disagree with Monster a Go-Go - it's a tough one, and as odd a turn as it takes, you can kinda sorta follow it.

I also have a special place for Kitten with a Whip.  Something about that movie rubbed me the wrong way.

I'm OK with Hamlet, even thought that episode pretty much guaranteed that my then girlfriend, now wife, does not tolerate MST3K very well.  It doesn't bother me enough that I don't enjoy it still.

It ain't just you. He was uncredited, but that was him.

I personally have no idea what happens in the Painted Hills. Every time I try to sit through it, my mind wanders off to literally anything else...like counting floor tiles or thinking about where Coily the spring sprite fits into God's plan.

Painted Hills kind of blew my mind - I had never seen a Lassie movie, and I had a miniature Collie at the time I first saw it. I kept trying to figure out why my clever doggy couldn't climb in and out of windows or chase bad guys around the wilderness. I've only watched that episode a few times but I think I like it ok.
