The Best of the Worst

Author
Time
Okay people. This thread is where we can discuss those movies that are really bad -- be they "bad" because they are poorly rated by critics/fans, bad box office draws, or just generally recognized as bad movies -- but we just can't stop watching them when they're on or we have even gone so far as to own them. Cult faves would count since they don't tend to do well in theaters and are generally considered "bad".

My list would include...

Jason X
Hudson Hawk
Crybaby (or any John Waters movie for that matter)
Big Trouble in Little China
Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2, Army of Darkness
Mallrats

Oh yes, that would definitely count. I also dug Wargames and Cloak and Dagger as a kid.

Read Bossk's criteria again, motti. SWTWC tanked at the box office.

Princess Leia: I happen to like nice men.
Han Solo: I'm a nice man.

Hi I’m new to this forum

here are some bad movies I like:

Basket Case - a strange low budget cult film from the early 1980's
The Evil Dead Trilogy
Rock N Roll High School - It has the Ramones, enough said
Transformers the Movie - you just can’t go wrong with a movie that has Orson Welles as the voice of Unicron, a robot that eats planets
Tombs of the Blind Dead - a great 1970's Spanish zombie movie
Knightriders - an underrated George Romero Classic

No motti, the whole point of this thread is to point out the "bad" movies that we love to watch. So, it's not that we don't like them... we do.

Nice list Soundwave. Welcome aboard.

CONDORMAN !!!

SO, YOU WERE THE OTHER PERSON IN THE MOVIE THEATER...LOL I LOVED THE CONDORMAN MOVIE WHEN I WAS A KID. IT WORKED ON DIFFERENT LEVELS. YOU HAD THIS COMIC BOOK WRITER/ARTIST THAT WOULDN'T USE ANY GADGETS IN HIS COMIC UNLESS THEY REALLY WORKED. SO, HE WOULD BUILD THEM AND ACTUALLT GO OUT AND TEST THEM HIMSELF. HE HAD A FRIEND WHO WORKED FOR THE C.I.A. WHO NEEDED HIS HELP RESCUING THE PRETTY LADY (IMHO SHE WASN'T THAT PRETTY). HE BECAME CONDORMAN FOR REAL. IT WAS A REALLY COOL COMIC BOOK/JAMES BOND MOVIE FOR KIDS MADE BY DISNEY.

CONDORMAN!!!! Holy hell!!! I haven't thought about that flick in years.

Obviously, this was a great thread to start up.

Oh, and I would like to add a flick...

The Last Starfighter.

They want to know that you're behind bars. Other than that, I'm not too sure.
