The Lyrics

Just a tribute to one of the most infamously bad films of all time...from the perspective that it's so bad, it's good at least. Enjoy!
La la la la-a
La la la la-a
La la la la-a (uh, yeah)
La la la la-a

I like watchin' movies, action and sci-fi (uh, yeah)
Not just quality (uh), I'm a fan of shite (haha)
And man, I think I found a pearl, a film that's at least seventeen ki-inds (yeah)
Of complete and utter garbage, but I love it, can't quite explain why-y

A waste of good film reels, that piece of crap called Battlefield Ea-earth
Where ev'ry shot is on an angle, quite Du-utch
And ev'rything's so blue like it's Avata-a-a-a-a-ar
Goo-ood Lord, Battlefield Ea-earth
The plot takes sev'ral views to u-understa-and
No-one but me's mad enough to-o do tha-at
Cause, of crap movies, I-I'm a fa-a-an, yeah-eah-eah
I get conflicted feels when watching crap like Battlefield Ea-earth
On a technical level, I know it su-ucks
But I've still got room for it i-in my hea-ea-ea-ea-ea-eart
A-am I nu-u-uts?

Look at the story (uh), got plot holes ten miles wide (uh)
World's controlled by Psychlos, alie-ens, right (uh)
But the whole race is made of morons, they think that dogs are the hi-igher li-ife (yeah)
They came to Earth to take our gold, but they didn't check Fort Kno-ox, dumbshi-ites

You'll get that facepalm feel, if you try to watch Battlefield Ea-earth
If I read the book it might make more sense, bu-ut
Don't wanna give cash to L. Ro-on Hubba-a-a-a-a-ard
Goo-ood grief, Battlefield Ea-earth
The Psychlos have enslaved what's le-eft of ma-an
Who think that ad mascots are o-old gods, da-amn
It's twit versus twit, who's gon' ki-ick who's a-a-a-a-a-arse?
Ho-old on, bu-u-ud

John Travolta's Terl, Terl
He's quite the dumbass jerk, jerk
Teaches the lead man, man
His name? Who gives a crap, cra-a-a-a-a-ap
Man now knows enough, -nough
To blow the Psychlos up, u-up
Their planet goes boom, boo-oo-oom
Cause Terl's a big too-oo-ool

Confused? I know that feel, I also sat through Battlefield Ea-earth
Why would Terl teach the hero all of that stu-uff?
He should know it would bite him i-in the a-a-a-a-a-arse
Tha-at's just Battlefield Ea-earth
Seems none of the cast or crew ga-ave a da-amn
Film's so incompetent, you ha-ave to lau-augh
Stops me weeping through the-e night, ma-a-an
Ha-ate-love Battlefield Earth
Battlefield Ea-ea-earth
Lo-ove-hate Battlefield Earth
Battlefield Ea-earth

A Dutch angle is where the scene is filmed at, well, an angle. It can represent madness, disorientation, and/or drug psychosis. In the case of Battlefield Earth, it represents the fact that the director knows that Dutch angles exist. Artsy!

Personally I haven't seen this one but I do enjoy watching the occasional crap movie every now and again things like "The Room", "Troll 2", "Birdemic: Shock And Terror" and of course... "Transformers" (Yes, I said it. Wanna fight about it?) Haha. Good parody here mate.

Good thing about crappy movies is that you get to see Nostalgia Critic bashing them.

I'm with Matty, never seen this one...but you gotta love bad movie classics such as "The Room", "Toxic Avenger", "Nude Nuns and Big Guns" (it's on Netflix...pretty weird), and "Mr. Nanny". If you love these movies, you'll love the "How Did This Get Made?" podcast...I highly recommend it!

I am partial to Cannonball Run and Santa Claus Conquers The Martians myself. This was an ok didn't make me wanna go and watch this movie (but that is a good thing, right?).

(Artistry) I dig a bad movie every once in a while. I think if you just appreciate them for what they are, they can be at least enjoyable. I liked this parody a lot, but not because it's bad, because it's good.
