The Best Of The Worst (Happy Birthday Ed Wood)



Ed Wood, born on October 10th 1924, wrote over 80 pulp fiction novels and made a collection of films in horror, science fiction, and comedy. And they're all pretty bad.
In The '70's, he was dubbed 'The Worst Director Of All Time' and his 1950's film "Plan 9 From Outer Space" was dubbed 'The Worst Movie Of All Time.'
But over the years, movie fans have acknowledged that it's an enjoyable bad. A 'so bad it's good' bad. And what's better than being with friends and enjoying a bad movie? Having done it myself, I can tell you the experience can be greater than enjoying a stuffy Oscar bait pretentious piece.
And that's probably why people can accept that. They KNOW it's bad and can have fun not worrying about deep thinking. A fun time at the movies is always worth the time and money.
So happy birthday Ed Wood! Sure, you weren't appreciated in your life, but people now enjoy your films in silly ways, mainstream filmmakers like Tim Burton appreciate your work, and indie filmmakers (like myself who has had his share of getting ripped apart by fans and critics) appreciate the dedication even in the face of rejection.
