Excuse me but there is no indisputable king of classic god-awful sci-fi movies except for FLASH. AHH-AHHHHH.

Like, I can accept that that's a pretty great example, and a shining standard to look up to, but it's kinda cheating with its production values. I'm still fairly partial to the stone-age barbarian who shoots a giant bat out of the sky, punches the rigor mortis into it, and then uses it as a hang glider while his theme song plays.

If you've ever thought to yourself "Y'know, Conan was pretty neat, but why didn't he ever infiltrate the death star and drive around in a bumper car?", then Yor, the Hunter from the Future is the movie for you.

I will agree that Yor is a fine example.

Didn't we used to have a movie thread specifically for appreciating classics like these? I thought I remembered something like that...

I've been watching old Mystery Science Theater episodes on youtube (upoaded by various people).  Red Letter Media's "Best Of The Worst" series is also mostly old cheesy movies, though they mostly just show highlights and discuss.

I thought Flash Gordon was a linebacker in the movie. Ah well.

Also, George Lucas tried to get the rights to make a Flash Gordon movie, but ended up making Star Wars instead.

The Norwegian translation of X-Files episode synopses is not exactly of the highest quality... Aside from the occasional typo or grammatical anomaly, it also sometimes accidentally a word.

(Translated back into English) "Agent Mulder believes an African spirit may be the culprit behind a number of dark-skinned individuals in Philadelphia"

I mean, at first I thought it was a mistake, but considering black people existing in Philly is a pretty damn mysterious event in and of itself, it probably warrants investigation anyways.

Scandinavian translations have always been a little off at best.
Being a Swede whom have been living in Denmark for a few years, I should know.

Edit: And don't get me started on Scandinavian dubs, which is a pet peeve of mine.

How does one watch old obscure movies?

I get them from the pirate bay. However that might be bad advice depending on the laws of the land.

some old movies are simply on youtube or dailymotion for free if they're not worth the effort of the rights holder to enforce.

It's much easier with anime, which is like the wild west compared to trying to stream English-language movies and TV. I think that's one reason anime is getting so popular with younger people. It's much less effort to get it than to illegally get Western shows.

Yeah...

Putting aside any feelings and emotions you may have about the act of piracy, it's not always a safe thing to do. There's more than a few people out there willing to post fake torrents that contain adware or malware.

I've learned that the hard way more than a few times.

Some times, I would like to know what goes on in the heads of those whom does this. What motivates them?
Is it simply to spread as much of it as possible? Or just want to get cheap laughs of some random person who made a poor decision?

This is the internet we're talking about here; the natural environment of trolls and lulz. For everything that exists, there is someone who thinks that drawing little penises on it is the highest form of cultural advancement.
