Wait, when has Heathers ever been considered not a classic?

I've known quite a few people that thought Heathers was bad, but I think that's just a matter of taste.  I enjoy watching it, so it made this list.

Yeah, but I didn't know it was generally considered bad. I've always heard it talked about as a classic.

Under Siege 1&2 on TV today. They are from Steven Segal ... the Thin years (relatively) so that's okay ... still, watch them, again, or not?

It *isn't* generally considered bad.  95% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes in fact, with an 85% positive audience response.

DOOM
it was campy but I liked it.  Too bad the FP view was only a minute long.  I also cringed when the Rock would say "Soldiers" instead of "Marines."  If you would argue that they are the same, ask the Marines themselves  :wink: .

Bram Stoker's Dracula ('92)
I had no idea people thought this was a bad movie.  I quite enjoy it.  Girlfriend watched it for the first time with me last night. She always avoided it because she thought it was a scary movie.  10 minutes in "This is silly!"  :laugh: . Watching again with a person was fun.  She said she read the book back in grade school and the movie follows it pretty well (from what she remembers).  The movie is just so campy and creepy.  Neo's wooden acting is just amazing!  Everyone one else's acting was decent but wow.  Hammy performances all around too.  A ton of topless scenes too.  She agrees with me though once this guys shows up, the movie becomes instantly better:


Just an amazing movie IMHO and a total guilty pleasure in October.  Its a horror-fantasy-erotic-drama film for Halloween.

Contrary to popular belief, I don't think the Star Wars pre-quel trilogy is that bad.  Sure, Phantom Menace is arguably the weakest of the three, they all have redeeming moments that make them watchable and enjoyable for the most part.

I suppose a case could be made for Attack of the Clones being the weakest due to the horribly dry dialogue between Anakin and Padme.

I think that's the order I'd rank them in as well.  Empire was my favorite hands down of all six Star Wars movies.

"Luke gets his hand chopped off, finds out Vader is his father, Han get frozen in carbonite and  taken away by Boba Fett!  It ends on such a down note; and that's life really is: A series of down endings.  All Jedi had was a bunch of muppets."

Titan A.E. I suppose a film that flopped so completely that it destroyed the studio that made it, and ended the career of Don Bluth, has to be regarded as bad. But I took my forum handle from the name of the lead female character Akima Kunimoto, so obviously I think it has something going for it.

Thirding Sky Captain.

Let's see...

Armageddon.
Transformers.

I think that covers Bay.

Mortal Kombat. (I always said it was mind blowing that the terrible fighting game, based on gore and over kill, made a better movie than the best fighting game of the time, Street Fighter. That was a bad film. But, I guess it goes to show that not all properties can cross media.)

Man of Steel.
Sucker Punch.

Can you say Zack Snyder? I knew you could. I went into MoS knowing what it was going to be. I dunno. I think I'm forgiving. But I also don't dig on the whole "you interpretation is not my interpretation so you suck" theory of art criticism. Sucker Punch I went into knowing only that there was twist. Once the movie really gets going, you pretty quickly recognize that the twist is the metaphor it's using. So you end up watching these over the top action scenes and having the jarring revelation (over and over) of what's really going on. Then the end happens, and you're like, "well, the title was honest."

I just watched a movie called Split Second.  Rutger Hauer as a Loose Cannon Cop versus Scary Evil Thing in a flooded England.  It's not bad.  Not particularly good either, but still enjoyable.  And it has the mandatory straight-laced partner start yelling about how they need bigger fucking guns, which was oddly hilarious.

I always considered Sucker Punch to just be a series of largely pretty awesome music videos with the plot being pretty much entirely irrelevant. Who cares about plot when you have cyberpunk robot wars in WWI with dragons?

I always considered Sucker Punch to just be a series of largely pretty awesome music videos with the plot being pretty much entirely irrelevant. Who cares about plot when you have cyberpunk robot wars in WWI with dragons?

It is. But it's that thing as produced by a guy wearing trollface. Because if you do think about the plot, you have to accept that the awesome music videos constitute repeated sexual assault and, "oh? did you you start to care about the main character? hahahahahaha!"

Sucker Punch was intended to work on both of those levels. Pay no attention to the plot and it's a popcorn movie. Pay attention, and it's fucking with you.

Was going to post saying I tend to try to ignore that aspect of it and realised that makes me one of the worst parts of society  :psyduck:

I wish that I could have ignored those plot elements in Sucker Punch. I went with my then-room mate to see it in theaters, and by the time it got to the first dream/dance/action sequence I was so much in a panic attack that I was ready to run out of the theater. Had I been there alone, or if the two of us hadn't been the only ones in the theater for that showing I would have. Aside from the those parts, which were awesomely over the top and great, that whole movie seemed designed to repeatedly kick me in all my anxiety/panic trigger points. I don't think I could even go back and just watch those action scenes again, and certainly not the movie. Just thinking about it makes me all panicky.
