    Just saw the cheesiest space movie ever.
    Iron Sky.
    Premise at the end of WW2 the nazis secret space program sends surviving nazis to the moon where they colonize a base on the far side.
    70 years later an American astronaut discovers it.
    Now the nazis are strong enough to take over the world again.
    It was so bad I couldn’t stop watching.
    Interesting premise though if it was done right

    Those are pretty exquisitely awful, but it's really tough to top "Plan Nine from Outer Space". When I have seen that movie, I've been embarrassed for the people who were in it. The ultimate commentary on the movie was that Bela Lugosi was a pathetic junky by that time and died while the movie was being made.

    6 year old Second Row wants to fight you on this, but 42 year old Second Row can only nod sadly in agreement.

    I have to admit that I haven never actually watched "Plan 9". Unfortunately, I was a projectionist when Krull and Ice Pirates came out and had to watch them prior to presenting to the public.

    Plan 9 is, indeed, one of the worst/cheesiest movies ever made, but I don't think of it as a space movie. Sure there are aliens, but nothing happens in space.

    Darkstar.
    Boiler: What's Talby's first name?

    Some of it is deliberately funny, but I think only half.

    The Stuff was pretty horrid. So was Revenge of the Teenage Vixens from Outer Space.

    I liked Krull, though I don’t remember why. I vaguely recall a wedding scene that was neat. Though I could easily be confusing it with another movie.

    So Iron Sky is a great Inde B-Movie. It has a BIG cult following, so much so that a sequel, Iron Sky: The Coming Race, was crowd funded and will be released soon.

    ...and I thought I was the only sicko here....
    Flesh Gordon is amazingly cheesey. The sequel, Flesh Gordon Meets the Cosmic Cheerleaders is even worse.
    Now as for Iilsa, you need to be a special kind of (warped) person to watch those movies.
    Iron Sky is certainly one of my guilty pleasures.

    This thread inspired me to see what old movies I could watch on a plane trip to Singapore for work.

    Ended up watching
    • The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)
    • Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1956)
    • Guardians of the Galaxy (2014)

    Ok, two were sort of space related, but largely based on Earth.

    Journey to the Seventh Planet. Not quite limburger-cheesy but definitely gorgonzola-level.
