The original Stargate

I have that on DVD...with Greek subtitles. It makes understanding the Goa'uld/Abydosian parts rather difficult, though I'm not sure that it doesn't improve it in some ways.

The first Starship Troopers isn't even slightly a bad film, it's just endlessly misunderstood.

It's biggest problem was that it was being compared to the book, but the movie was also something entirely of its own that didn't require you to know anything about the book to enjoy it for what it was.

Spoilers, dude! :roll:

You survived not knowing anything about this film since 1996? It's played every July 4th even in the UK!

Oh jeez. I love crappy movies. If it tanked at the box office, you can be sure I've seen it at least once.


For starters, yes to a few previously mentioned: Starship Troopers, Transformers and Independence Day. I'm a huge fan of Will Smith's alien movies. I've seen the first two MIB movies at least 20 times each. Only seen the third twice, but give it time.  :-P I'm obsessed with all of them.

Other "winners" that I love:

Grandma's Boy
Dude, Where's My Car?
Bio Dome
Joe Dirt
Zoolander

I loved Joe Dirt, funny and contains a lot of jokes and references that now make sense seeing it subsequent times.

I'll add in a Joe Dirt rip-off: "Bubble Boy".

i only ever saw part of joe dirt, & didn't find it all that funny. however, it has christopher walken saying "stab you in the face with a soldering iron", & for that i am eternally grateful.

they forced the guy who made robocop to base his movie on a book he didn't even like. what would you expect him to do with it?



my personal favorite bad movie would have to be Street Fighter. love everything about it: raul julia, van damme's comically thick accent, raul julia, the cheesy plot that has nothing to do with street fighting, raul julia, the stupid one-liners, raul julia, the pointless secondary characters, raul julia and of course raul fucking julia

I think the movie version of The Producers musical (which got very mixed reviews) was fantastic, with my only complaint being that they cut my favorite song (at least it is avaliable as a deleted scene). Nathan Lane is perfect.

Okay, put some more thought into this.

I always liked Tango and Cash - even though I admit it is awful.

I loved the American Ninja movies (yeah, all of them) even though I knew I was watching crap.  I couldn't get enough.

Lawnmower man is still a favorite.  Jeff Fahey and Pierce Brosnan - great actors - terrible movie.

Zombie Strippers was great.  Awful, but great.

House, and house II - but the first one more than the second.

I thought Flash Gordon was the greatest movie of all time when it came out - now, not so much.

Always liked Heathers.  I'm a Christian Slater fan, and Winona Ryder was just a bonus.

I guess that's about it for now.

See, I'm the opposite. If it utterly failed in its intention, but accidentally succeeds in another (for example, a movie that tried to be scary and ended up hilarious), then it's still a good movie. If a movie tried to be boring and was boring, then...their intention was stupid. Result is the only thing that matters.

I disagree with that entirely. Flash is absolute trash but wants to be, and it is entertaining trash. It is ridiculous to give more credit to a film that attempts to be serious horror and ends up as hilarious bullshit than to a film that wants to be trash and SUCCEEDS at being trash. How can that possibly work, Method?

Similarly, a good film can be ruined by its intentions for me. I long ago stopped enjoying Shrek because it is a product of sheer spite against Disney. It's funny, yes, but it's one of the most mean-spirited films I've ever seen.

Still, I wouldn't call Flash a 'good movie.' A cult classic, perhaps, like Troll 2 or something.

Yeah, I guess it doesn't. To be fair, when I go to see those horror movies, I fully expect them to fail as horror and go into them expecting a comedy. So I guess I override their intention with mine? I dunno. But something that's "so bad it's good" is still good.

You also have to understand the time frame when Flash Gordon came out. It was an attempt to compete with stuff like Superman and Star Wars, and it kinda failed at both.

And the willing suspension of disbelief went out the window when they decided that he was the quarterback of the New York Jets...

I have a secret enjoyment for movies featuring Jean Claude van Dam. He's like Ahnuld, but more of a Fighter class individual to Ahnulds incredible hulk
Would you happen to have seen JCVD? I haven't yet but I've heard good things about it. It's basically an affectionate deconstruction of Jean-Claude Van Damme's image, with him playing as himself.

Anyway, if I get it right, we're here talking of movies we enjoy that are generally considered bad, but not because they are bad, right? (There's already a Terrible Movies thread, after all)

Mine would be Hudson Hawk. Shamelessly campy and hammy, sacrifices pretty much everything to rhythm and fun, almost universally shunned by critics, nearly killed Bruce Willis' carreer... If you can call a movie made for pure uncomplicated entertainment a "pop-corn movie", then I'll go as far as saying this movie is made of pop-corn.

Somewhere is a "good bad movies" thread, but who the hell knows where at this point?

Edited to add:  it's back on page 11.  So fuck that other thread.
