Thread: So bad it's good....

    So bad it's good....

    Had a 'So bad it's good' movie night last night.

    Some of my friends don't get this concept, highbrow art film obsessed mofos, but a handful of us embrace the childish comfort of it.

    It usually involves an action flick, which I love, but only falls into the category of 'So bad it's good' if it has:

    • Cheesy, terrible dialogue
    • At least one truly awful acting performance
    • Major cliches

    The pinnacle of this genre is 'Point Break' with Keanu Reeves but movies can often involve Nicolas Cage - we watched Vampire's Kiss, one of Cage's early films, last night.......OMFG!

    Have any examples?

    Who's That Girl? with Madonna. It's over-the-top, the acting is off, but the scenes are so funny and outrageous, you laugh at it as though it were a long SNL skit. It's classic slapstick comedy with awesome 80's music.

    Having said that, where Madonna truly shines, of course, is in the music she produced just for the film.

    I am not sure I can say they are "good" at any level, but three of my top bad films are these (the second is one of the only films I ever walked out of):

    McKenna's Gold (sad to say, bad Gregory Peck and laughable FX)

    Exit to Eden

    The Island of Dr. Moreau (a nearly comatose Marlon Brando and a stoned Val Kilmer)

    Rotten Tomatoes used to specialize in these, but now has just become a regular film review site. This site has more possibilities now: . This one also bears checking out:

    'Drag Me to Hell' (2009) When I saw it, many in the theater were laughing.

    Every Quentin Tarantino movie ever made!

    Don't insult my Nicholas Cage ... every woman wants a Nicholas Cage in her life! (The guys at work constantly rip on me about this ... I make them give up the remote in the lunch room if there's a Nick Cage movie on!)
    Roses are red. Tacos are enjoyable. Don't blame immigrants, because you're unemployable.

    The Ambluance - Eric Roberts, James Earl Jones and a cameo by Stan Lee (Marvel Comics) playing himself!
