Did you actually watch Battlefield Earth? I mean the whole movie. I'm asking because I couldn't do it.

I can't speak for Draginol, but I watched the WHOLE thing. I was too stunned to get up and leave.

IMDB is my favorite source for "six degrees of Kevin Bacon" research (I am a near pro at that game). Good article! There are soms choices here that may guide a few future movie purchases.

I generally go for a "more than 7 or less than 3" standard. I am a campy movie buff, and in my opinion, if it's REALLY bad, it's gotta be good!

I made it about 30 minutes into Battlefield Earth before the room started to spin. Fortunately, it was on HBO and my floor had carpeting.
