Americathon Bad-Movies Barbarella Future Humor John-Ritter Movies Post Sean-Connery

The Best Worst Movies about the Future

Many movies have been made about the future and most of them have sucked. Usually they involve people in shiny suits and rocket cars. Or its some lame post-apocalyptic future where everybody wears football shoulder pads and drives dune buggies. However, there have been a few movies that have been so bad that they actually managed to get some things right. These movies all come from the 70's so mind-altering drugs probably had something to do with it. 1. Zardoz: A giant floating head tells a bunch of crazed white guys that the penis is bad and vomits guns and ammo from its mouth. Sean Connery also runs around in a loin cloth the whole movie. If you think of the head as George W. Bush it kind of makes sense. Sean Connery would represent the East Coast liberals I guess. [youtube]pQR9cHkyeFM[/youtube] 2. Barbarella: Jane Fonda does lots of drugs and has sex with everybody she meets. At one point she is even raped by a giant church organ. I suppose this is kind of like Paris Hilton except I don't want to punch Barbarella in the face everytime I see her. [youtube]a4-hAIDitBU[/youtube] 3. Americathon: In the future everyone will wear sweatsuits, live in their cars and America will go bankrupt and will owe billions to the Native Americans who also own Nike. In an effort to save the country president John Ritter will put on the largest Telethon ever to save the country. The amount of drugs they had to be taking to make this film is truly staggering. However the Seminole tribe just bought the Hard Rock franchise so maybe they were onto something, besides just cocaine.
