Space Travelers (Marooned) for sure... I remember seeing it in the theater when it came and and I was awed by the special effects...

I'm watching it now, and honestly it's a very bad real movie. It's like what would happen if you took Apollo 13, fictionalized it, drained it of all visual interest, and made it a long series of dull people talking to each other dully. It's the last 20 minutes of 12 to the Moon with a higher budget.

I have to go with This Island Earth. Easily a well done classic sci-fi movie.

Space Mutiny and Boggy Creek II are also semi-decent. They at least try hard and come off pretty well..

Oh I know it's bad, but relatively speaking I think it's "better" than most other MST3K movies on its own. And in 1969 it was better than a lot of things...

I don't know, I think wasted potential makes a movie worse, and that movie was overflowing with it. And it's not like a visually compelling space movie was impossible in 1969, the 2001 was released.

Basically, I think Time Chasers was a better movie, on the grounds that Time Chasers was about as good as it could have been, given the circumstances. Marooned could have been much, much better.

Man, that's a tough question. Like asking "Which colonoscopy was the best you ever had?" I guess I would have to say Clonus came closer than any other to being an actual movie, in my mind. But that's not saying a great deal for it.

I remember being very slightly interested in the plot of Time Chasers.

I'm also partial to The Touch of Satan as a fan of terrible horror movies, I think that was what they were aiming for with that one anyway what with the slasher opening scene and all.

Phase IV

/just sayin'...

Servo: "What was the name of this movie Joel?"
Joel: "Phase IV"
Servo: "We're halfway there..."

My personal opinion of this film was that it was almost "Manos" bad... terrible audio...

I would have to go with, as others pointed out, the Finnish/Russian fairy tales, like The Day the Earth Froze, or Jack Frost.  They had some really interesting special effects for the time, combining high production stage tricks and some competent film manipulation tricks. 

The thing that made them so funny was the terrible dubbing and I'm sure the dialogue was much better in the native tongue.  That happens to alot of foreign films that are dubbed, the translation makes the dialogue sound ridiculous.

This happens alot in Asian films because English can't really capture the nuances of Chinese, Japanese, or Hindi.  The characters often turn out to sound really retarded.

I thought The Magic Sword was a fairly decent movie.  The Rebel Set also wasn't that bad.

well keep in mind that  Stranded in Space,   aka   Marooned    did win an Oscar.   and has some award for most used stock footage shots reused.  so thats my choice
