leonard maltin gave it two and a half stars!
We were watching "Laserblast" from the MST3K anniversary set, and D says, "This movie sucks."

Yes, sweetheart, that's kinda the premise of the show.

He does that a lot, and it cracks me up. He called this one the worst movie ever, so I pointed out that he's always calling whichever one we're watching the worst ever, and he says, "I know, but somehow there's always a new low."

I said, "What about Manos? This is worse than Manos?"

He said yeah, because at least Manos was almost beautiful in its total weirdness.

You know, he might have a point.

You know, I actually thought 'Santa Claus meets the Martians' was kinda sweet.

The idea is sweet, a dad just wanting to make his children happy. (And "Let's Have a Patrick Swayze Christmas" is a true classic.)

What's great is that some of the movies aren't inherently bad, they're just badly done. You can tell there's a good idea in there somewhere, and with a real budget and some real actors/director/crew instead of the writer's friends/family, it could work (like Time Chasers). And some (like Laserblast) you just wonder, "Who thought anyone would want to watch this?"
