Hardest working man in the movie business, I'd say.
My Favorite Corman movie is "Battle Beyond the Stars", his version of Star Wars, based on the plot of The Seven Samurai, with just an incredible cast of once-famous, nearly-famous, infamous, and famous-to-be's. And some unknowns on the crew: John Sayles, script, James Horner, Music, and some kid named Jimmy Cameron built the spaceship models and did some art direction and effects.

Death Race 2000 is a good one, and for ultra camp, I love to laugh at his take on "The Fantastic Four" I watched as a horrible copy.

A second that about Death Race 2000, that's a great movie, but I believe it was only Corman produced, not directed. I stumbled across it in college, and have probably seen it 10 times since, and could probably watch it 20 more times. Machine Gun Joe makes me laugh in every scene, I especially like when he nonchalantly sprays the crowd with bullets during his introduction, haha. That movie was like a live-action, adult version of those Wacky Races cartoons I use to watch on Saturday mornings when I was a kid. I've never seen the Death Race remake from a year or to ago, but it looked horrible and unfunny, so I don't really ever plan on watching it either.

Also last year I picked up Corman's "Puerto Rico" trilogy DVD set in a bargain bin, pleasantly surprised with the bang I got for the buck. Last Woman on Earth was enjoyable from what I remember, and apparently it was written by Robert Towne of Chinatown!

I cut up the new Death Race for work about a year ago. meh.... it wasn't horrible, worth streaming on netflix if you have nothing else better going on.
