The joyful day!

A question ... just to see if I can get folks talking

What is your favorite bad movie.

I'd have to say Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone. It's a dog ... it's silly, cheap, badly acted and a ton of fun. Molly Ringwald (the year before 16 Candles made her a star) is hysterical, or obnoxious, or both depending on your point of view. Michael Ironside is having way too much fun to be in this movie. Ernie Hudson is doing the same part you have seen him do time and time again. The effects are laughable, the creatures are silly. It's marvelous. I think I may subject the WSPA to it this weekend (yes I do own it). OH, it was in 3D in the first run. What else could you want from a bad movie?

So, own up.
The joyful day!

Real ... not really

I have a couple of nifty concert videos in .rm format that I want to transfer to a usable (and DVD burnable) format.

Does anyone have a program that they would recommend? There are dozens of them out there, and I'm sure that many of them are probably pretty intrusive.
