Default Worst Movie of all Time, round of 16

Ok, since the other threads Poll sucked I am remaking it Swede123 style using most of the suggestions from the other thread. I could go for 32 movies but I am lazy so some candidate ones didn't make the list. The 16 here and the seeding was pretty arbitrary.

I'll give 2 days for the poll to run.

Default Upset City

I'll take The Core at +215 and 8 Heads in a Duffel Bag at +115.
Maybe Pearl Harbour just because a lot of people have seen it, and therefore hated it. I'd take Pearl Harbour at +300

Kinda stupid to do a bet like this when the current results are immediately viewable.

The bets weren't meant to be serious, but, if someone was interested, they would have to take it...within the next couple of minutes.

MANOS THE HANDS OF FATE SHOULD BE #1 AND SHOULD RECEIVE A BYE TO THE FINAL.

Guys, if you have never heard of it, here's a quick rundown:

Two friends are chatting. They are discussing how hard it can be to direct and film a movie. They make a bet. Friend 1 bets Friend 2 that he can't make a movie.

Friend 2 makes a movie about absolutely nothing, wins the bet, and Manos: The Hands of Fate is born.

This isn't even a fair tournament.

In sports terms, this would be like if you lined up the 1996 Chicago Bulls team and asked them to play in a basketball tournament against AAU High School kids.

THIS MOVIE IS HORRIBLE!!!!!!!

Highlander 2 is the very worse movie of all time - not only is it truly awful, it ruins the memory of it's predecessor, which is a truly great movie.

To follow up my post:

Link.

Here's just an excerpt:

Sometime in the mid 1960's, Hal Warren met Stirling Silliphant, who was visiting El Paso to scout out film locations (Silliphant would later go on to write screenplays for real films like In the Heat of the Night and The Towering Inferno, and not-so-real films like The Swarm). After several conversations with Silliphant, Hal Warren somehow got it into his head that he could make a movie just as well as anybody in Hollywood. After pounding out a script (tentatively called The Lodge of Sins), he rounded up a few college kids to be his crew, then got some actors from the local community theater and a few models from a nearby agency to be his cast. (Say what you want about ol' Hal, but he must have been a hell of a salesman to convince so many others that he could really do this.)Finally, he secured a camera and got down to business. The camera that Hal used, unfortunately, was a 16mm Bell & Howell model that had to be wound by hand, meaning it could only record film for roughly thirty seconds at a time. (This is the reason for most, though not all, of the choppy editing work you'll see in the film.) In addition, it couldn't record sound; Therefore, all dialogue and sound effects were dubbed in later. (It's said that nearly all of the voices you hear in this movie were provided by the same three or four people.)

THE DIRECTOR WAS A FREAKING FERTILIZER SALESMAN!!!

How can this NOT be the worst movie of all time????
