Battlefield Earth: A Saga of the Year 3000 is a 2000 sci-fi/action film vanity project starring John Travolta and Barry Pepper.

The adaptation of the L. Ron Hubbard novel of the same name, it is infamously known as the movie that killed Franchise Pictures due to fraudulent budget reporting, and is on pretty much every "Worst Movies of All Time" list that exists.

Every frame of the movie is shot in a Dutch Angle and it features Windows Movie Maker wipes.
