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
A special effects Oscar, and if this really did come out in '69, one it damned well didn't deserve.

Without riffing, I thought Space Mutiny would have been really entertaining in a "so bad, it's good" kind of way...

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...

Surely you realize that the audio/video problems were not from the original film. All KTMAs are bad because they are nth-generation copies.

Yeah, but I doubt the horrible pacing issues were KTMA's fault. I must say, it's certainly among the better movies of that era, though. It and the Airport knockoff are pretty much the only watchable ones.

I just remembered "Gorgo", that was not a bad picture, the riffing made it funny.  They were really on fire for that one.  But the flick was pretty good on it's own, as they go...

Geez... you didn't pick on the three people before me that picked Space Mutiny! 

Not to mention that I didn't really "pick" Space Mutiny. I specifically said the "so bad, it's good" thing because I was trying to place it into context in relation to the original poster's intent... and I mentioned three other movies that I thought were legitimately decent... so there!! :P

EDIT: You ARE the original poster. So double :P

I submit.

I enjoyed Gorgo from childhood. Of course, in my childhood I rewatched "Godzilla Vs. Megalon" about 37 times, and I loudly declared that It Conquered the World was NOT cheesy, so that doesn't have much bearing on actual quality.

I'd say Clonus myself because the premise was interesting and really, with a little touch up of acting and such, probably could have passed as a real movie.
....Then they made "The Island" and we all saw that isn't true.       BURN! Take THAT Michael Bay.

Seriously though, I think Clonus was decent considering the context. I know I've seen "Quest of the Delta Knights" as a serious film in the kids section of Blockbuster before, but by that point I had already seen the MST version so I was able to laugh and appreciate it at a different level. "Soul Taker" might have also had a chance with some changes.....

"Red Zone Cuba"?   Oh wait.....

I would have to go with "Gorgo".   Some of the other films were entertaining on their own (i.e. Future War), but they were NOT good films.   I think "Gorgo" was a pretty good film for time.

Although the concept of BEST MST3K movie is a little like asking "what is the best rash you have ever had"?

I think Timechasers is pretty entertaining. I could probably watch the un-MST'd version of Overdrawn at the Memory Bank without dying too.

I can barely watch the MST version of  "Overdrawn" myself. It's funny, sure and I love it, but it's sooooooo boring and non-sensical....hell I get MORE confused when I hear more of the plot!

I kinda liked Deathstalker and the Warriors from Hell.  It was really hokey but I've watched far worse movies that never turned into episodes.  The other one as a fan of Macgyver type shows "Angels Revenge" wasn't terrible for watching on a Sunday afternoon as a background noise kinda thing.  Same goes for the Hercules movies.

Frankly, I've always thought "Time Chasers" was one of the better quality MSTed movies.
