I love my captain


Following a suggestion from FredGiblet on the "Top 2 Worst Movies" thread, I'm going to turn this into it's own thread.

Here was the my bit of post on the topic. I'll probably have more to add later but I want to hear from you all first.

Has anyone here ever really enjoyed a movie that they just knew was horrible. Come on, quilty pleasures here. For example, I hate to admit it but I enjoyed the Dungeons and Dragons movie. I know it was a bad movie, with bad acting and a questionable story but I can't help it.

I always get a look when I admit this, followed with a "What? Are you serious?"

Popeye the movie.

That's right, that lousy, half acted, half directed, barely a script musical with half decent singing and dancing(?) One that even Robin Williams used in a skit and joked how bad it was. I can't say why I like this, I can't even explain that I like the songs and have seen it so many times I can actually sing along with them (scary, ain't it) It's one of those movies that you should shun when it comes on, but like a traffic accident or a fire you can't help but watch. And sing along with.

THE GIRL NEXT DOOR

Even though it's generally regarded as a RISKY BUSINESS knock-off and was actually on Eberts WORST list of 2004, I actually have it in my DVD collection, mainly because of Elisha Cuthbert.

Sue me, I actually like her, and I really liked her in this movie.

Every year, there's one movie that comes out that everyone dumps on, but I always enjoy. Closest so far this year is SHREK THE THIRD, but that might change.

Awww cmon you guys... you're trying to make yourselves sound bad. These are all really good movies!
Big Trouble in Little China... in his time Kurt Russell was the man! Okay so the bad guy blows up like a baloon and explodes salad all over everyone... big deal!
Armageddon... HUGE movie! A blockbuster... just because you like this doesn't make it wrong.
The girl Next Door... if you are a man and did not like watching this movie... there's something wrong with your manhood!
Sahara... again... Pennelope Cruz... I... I don't get it.
And don't even get me started on Hudson Hawk! One of the best movies EVER! Great actors, great comedy... poison paralizing darts and a giant idiot named Butterfinger! Classic!

If you truly want to talk guilty pleasures and not just a list of classic movies... I'll give you some guilty pleasures!

Howabout the Fast and Furious movies! You can't tell me that those aren't HORRIBLE! But whenever they come on I watch them... they remind me of good friends and better times. Even Tokyo Drift... I'll watch it!

Drumline! I'll admitt, I played in the marching band... and I love this movie too!

Blankman... I don't even need to say anything more than that.

The emporers new Groove! I LOVE that freakin movie!

THE GOLDEN CHILD!!! Nuff said!

But as long as we're all talking about some of our favorite forgotten movies... howabout The Manhattan Project, with John Lithgow... The Explorers, about the kids who built the red spaceship... and anything with the Muppets in it!!!

Clash of the Titans.
This movie was horrible. Some of the acting in it could have come right out of my High School and the discontinuities where so bad that the movie mixed up night and day. Yet, I must have watched that movie a hundred times and it never gets old.

Underworld.
I thought this movie was great, but most people seem to hate it, and I have to admit that when people explain to me why they hated it, I can’t disagree with their criticisms, yet I still like it.

Armageddon.
I liked Armageddon, although I’m not sure that it was really a bad movie. It had some cheese and some really stupid stuff in it, but I think that was intentional and the science was a little more then questionable but so are most scifi movies. I don’t think it was supposed to be realistic or plausible, but rather was intentionally sentimental; the way a play might be overdramatic to emphasize certain emotions. I don’t buy that this was a bad movie, so it doesn't really apply here, but I'll list it anyway.

Spy Kids.
Okay this really wasn’t a bad movie either. In fact, it was pretty good, but it’s also most definitely a kid’s movie that I wouldn’t have imagined would appeal to adults, yet somehow I just liked it.

Way too many mainstream movies on this list. Can we get any more unoriginal than Armegeddon? I think that's made this list 30 times on 20 posts. Not to mention that the budgets to most of these flicks were so high that they weren't intended to be crappy in the first place. Armegeddon was a disasterous waste of money and talent... standard operating procedure for Hollywood when they're looking to make a quick buck off of the idiot public. And Underworld? That movie was pretty awesome and sexy and had a budget that was higher than every one of the cheesy 80's movies with no-name stars that should make a list like this combined.

Gotta laugh at Popeye though. It took years for me to realize how much I hate Robin Williams.

Imma have to agree with the underdogs too.... the Hollywood movies that didn't make squat and were hated on by critics so much that nobody watched them or even if they did they rode the hate train from the beginning to the end credits. That being said.... yes, Waterworld was and AWESOME movie, and screw you if you disagree, and Freddy Got Fingered made me laugh my ass off. "Look what I'm doing Daddy! Look what I'm doing Daddy!" The Postman was also vastly underrated, but no suprise there since everybody's still riding that hate train on Kostner since Waterworld.

I got me another one. I have a cousin who's addicted to bad horror films. He loves the things and he got me to watch a few. I gotta say that I really enjoyed Jack Frost. Both of them actually. And I don't mean a family friendly Michael Keaton movie. These are what I believe to be intentionaly bad horror fliks about a psyco killer incarnated as a snowman. And the secon one takes place on a tropical island of all places.

And speaking of Michael Keaton...I like Multiplicity. I know it is a bad movie and I am ashamed but come on. Four is just funny. "You know how when you make a copy of a copy, the second one's sometimes..not quite as bright?"

Resident Evil: Apocalypse. Bad, bad, bad, bad, bad on so many levels. (No pun intended.) Although, having played Resident Evil 3: Nemesis on the old PS1 system years back, I kinda still love this movie. As a long term horror fan, I really SHOULDN'T lol.

I hated the fact that the zombies were rabid and fast on their feet. They gave Jill Valentine black or really dark brown hair and made her kinda cocky and uptight too, which was as far away from the original character as they could get. The plot lacked any real sense of creepiness or creativity.

There weren't any real stand out, gross, memorable moments. Although, when the Nemesis uttered the immortal words 'S.T.A.R.S' in the movie, that was me sold. The movie stayed true to some elements of the game, and while the plot isn't anything special or remotely creepy, it's action packed and 'switch your brain off' viewing. It was funnier than the first one too, and I think that's why I love it.

Absolutely nothing wrong with The Rundown.
An amazing film that was surprisingly well-reviewed!

My guilty pleasure is Moon 44, for one reason: The hero loves to read.

There's a great moment, towards the end, when Brian Thompson (the "dumb brute") returns to Michael Paré (the hero) the book he'd stolen out of Paré's locker earlier in the movie, with the same ashamed expression that he'd had when he took the book.

When Paré says, "Keep it. Read it," Thompson lifts his chin, sets his jaw and proudly states, "I already did."

That right there was worth the price of admission (Well, the DVD, anyway)!

Willow is a LotR rip-off? How is that exactly? It's a fantasy movie with little people? If anything, it watches more like a D&D campaign than coming anywhere near feeling like a LotR Redux.

But I will agree that it's a great flick. I fell in love with Sorsha. My love for her wasn't replaced until I saw Saffron.

Gotta Chime in here, I love these threads.

1. The Karate Kid 2 - Better than the first IMHO
2. The Kid With The Golden Arms - The best of the Wu Tang Clan (not the rap artists) Kung Fu movies from the late 60's complete with 8" sideburns
3. Tango and Cash - Always watch it, the cheese factor is off the charts.
4. They Call Me Bruce - a Chinese man in LA who looks like Bruce Lee but has no Kung Fu ability whatsoever gets targeted by the mob, hilarity ensues.
5. The Warriors - New York street gangs in face paint? "Can you dig it!!!!!!"
6. My Science Project - Dennis Hopper as a science teacher named Bob Robertson Esq., and time travel. Blowing up a T-Rex with an RPG for good measure.
7. Demon Knight - Bald Billy Zane as the devil; OK maybe not bad, but I didn't see its name on the oscar list.
8. Legend - Good despite Tom Cruise, Tim Curry saved it. The directors cut changes the whole movie.
9. Labyrinth - David Bowie as Nancy Wilson (Blonde from the band Heart) with Muppets.
10. Godzilla - the new one with Matthew Broderick, kind of like a train wreck. I'm horrified yet I cannot look away!

Eight Legged Freaks-reminds me of old horror movies from my childhood

See Spot Run- both of these star David Arquette

Really, any movie starring dogs, no matter how bad. If they have flappy lips, I'm hooked.

Aeon Flux- I know fans of the original hate it, but awesome ass kicking by a woman

Resident Evil- Apocolypse- same reason as Aeon
It amazes me at the training these women go through to kick ass on screen.


SixString- as far as a lot of people mentioning Armaggedon, I think we like knowing we're not alone in liking a particular bad flick.

You're probably right SS, but I'm just saying.... According to IMDB, the movie was up for about 27 different awards (and yes, these included the Razzies, so I guess it really does reek of cheese).... but it did have 4 Oscar nominations and a rediculous budget......

To be fair though, I did re-read the original post and it would seem that Armageddon would be perfectly fine on this list. I was mistaken about its original intent.

I guess I was just thinking it was more a thread for huge cheese movies that were all about cheese, and I always think of low budget movies that nobody else ever heard of. (Jack Frost, IMO was a great addition to the list) The kind that would air on Cinemax between 10:00PM - 2:00 on weekends when I was a kid usually come to mind. My bro absolutely hates Lep in the Hood and Troll 2 and that makes me like them even more.

Didja check the vids? Pretty sic stuff, don'tcha think?


EDIT: I gotta admit, even though I can't remember a thing about Armegeddon except that Buscemi was in it and he's one of my favorite actors, I did enjoy watching it with my girlfriend of that time. "I Don't Want To Miss A Thing" was actually our song.....

Yeah.... If it were possible for me to be embarrased underneath this 4" thick skin I've developed over the years, I do think I'd be now...

Well, yes I didnt really think it was a rip-off either but thats what the main criticism was so I was really just repeating that--should have made it clearer. For the record, I thought the special effects were wonderful too when I was a kid but they sure aint now.
Glad to see that there is another fan out there: Joanne Whalley Kilmer was excellent (You clearly have a thing for redheads) but Val was always the main attraction for me!

Hey, figured ya'll might like to know.... Firefly being a Joss project and all, but for some reason while I was talking to my brother it popped up in my head that the movie that I mentioned before "Psycho Beach Party" may have had Xander in it from Buffy. I was never a buffy fan, but I've caught a few eps of that and Angel and Charmed on TBS when nothing was on and it just kinda clicked in my head while I was talking to him. My bro said he has a twin so it might have been his twin if it wasn't him. I just checked on IMDB and it is the same guy who played Xander, and also Lauren Ambrose from 6 Feet Under is the other main character.

I just thought that little nugget might get a few people in here to watch that excruciatingly bad but embarrassingly fun and enjoyable flick and tell me that I have awesome taste in crap cinema.

Didn't mean to embarrass, but see how many mentioned it on the hated movies list! This movie had some great lines.

I wanna name her Dottie after my wife. She's a vicious life-sucking bitch from which there is no escape.- about the asteroid

I know the presidents' chief advisor, we were at MIT together. And, at this point in time, you really don't want to take advice from a man who got a C minus in astrophysics.

The whole conversation about what they want in exchange for doing the job. Crap, I gotta go watch it now!

Here's a cheese movie for ya- Freeway!

Oh, and pretty much anything else 'USA Up All Night'

I was like thirteen and it had Rhonda Shear as the hostess (from '91 to '98), and for anyone who knows who she is knows she was enough to make a thirteen year old watch craptacular movies. Up All Night wasn't all that bad even when Gilbert Gottfried hosted, but I missed Rhonda.

Dude yeah....

Up all night was the shit. That's what I'm talking about. Zapped again...... Vice Acadamy I, II, III (I hear there's six now lol).....

How about "Weird Science"? Or "Bachleor Party" back when Tom Hanks was funny, relatively unknown, and still trying to convince the public that he wasn't really a cross dresser in real life?

Funny how in the end Tom did such a much more impressive job of that than Lenord Nemoy did convincing the sheep that he really wasn't a Klingon.

Just for laughs, check out Mr. Nemoy's pre-MTV music video entitled "The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins". From what I hear his true love really was music. If you haven't heard it, it's a shame. I was hoping it would be the LOTR theme song..... sigh...

Here's hoping that it's the theme to "The Hobbit"!



BTW... can't remember who mentioned "Demon Knight" but i actually saw that with friends about 6 times at the dollar theatre by me in highschool. I threw a fit when the old lady working there one night wouldn't let us in to see it because we were too young.



EDIT: Man... watching that vid now again and there really are some nice looking girls on there. Too bad they're all older than my grandma now.


EDITEDIT: HA! C minus in astrophysics!

Hey - I'm all over Big Trouble in Little China! Good cheesy fun.

Others...

Flash Gordon - although, I just can't classify it as actually *bad*. The costumes... the music...

Caveman - Ringo Starr, Dennis Quaid, and Shelley Long speaking in grunts. Bad effects, stoned dinsosaurs, a vocabulary of like 20 words. I love this movie!

And does anyone even know this one? Skatetown USA (Skate-tooooown!! goin' round and round...) Patrick Swayze's finest acting EVER!

IS it bad that I love almost every movie on everyone's list

Hudson Hawk rocks and I have no idea why people say it's bad
I think the first Fast and the Furious is great
I really liked almost everything on everyone's lists...argh apparently I just love bad movies

I will add in that I love Starship Troopers, Deep Blue Sea, and Clue (with Tim Curry)

Now everybody thinks the film adaption of the sci-fi video game of Wing Commander is really crap but I love it don't care what other people think its in my top 15 films of all time so everybody go & buy it.

Plus the incredible main theme which rivals even Serenity's is done by none other than David Arnold the man responsible for OST's for WIng Commander, Stargate(film & the legendary main theme), Godzilla, Independence Day, Tomorrow Never Dies, THe World Is Not Enough, Casino Royale(my fav OST), & Hot Fuzz
