Illustration for article titled io9’s March Movie Madness: Pick the worst science fiction movie ever made!

Is a race to the bottom! We're so much closer to crowning the world's work scifi flick of all time! This round The Phantom Menace faces that rotten 90s Godzilla picture. Plus Battlefield Earth goes up against the giant robot body full of tiny terrible people in Meet Dave.


So far there's already been a whole mess of upsets in the bracket of doom. I don't think anyone saw Catwoman brutally beating out Indiana Jones: Kingdom of the Crystal Skull as hard as it did. But I think we're all pretty happy that Mac & Me walloped Star Trek: Nemesis.

Don't fall for it guys! Everyone knows Godzilla '98 was a greater slap to our collective nostalgia than Phantom Menace!

Phantom Menace just reminded us George was a hack, who this time had nobody to reign him in.
