The "Worst Movies" thread is "muy interesante", clearly there are some real duds out there but there are likely others like me that have not spent much time watching low end SCI-FI and have to be satisfied with mainstream losers like Ishtar and Summer Dog.

But there must be some hidden gems out there, movies that somehow bring magic to the screen even if the budget wasn't enough to buy a new car today. And it seems more worthwhile to turn people on to good movies than bad though I know that most of you must appreciate the worst in SCI-FI the same way connoisseurs of Vampire Movies appreciate the works of that genre.

So whats your favorite... the one you have watched a 100 times are will still go back for more?

Doesn't seem to be too well known, but I enjoyed "The Lathe of Heaven". Interesting premise, I thought.
