Branching off from the worst movies you paid good money for...

I'm going for Ernest Scared Stupid, Class of Nuke 'Em High 1 & 2, and (as everyone knows) Space Marines.

I still mourn Jim Varney. I guess because I grew up watching various movies he was in (especially the Ernest movies), I felt pretty sad when I found out he'd died. There was something so charming about him. I think I still have a crush on him, despite his demise. :P

More bad movies I loved: Nightmare on Elm Street 4, Tank Girl and Seed of Chucky.

Hmm, "loved". That's hard. I *liked* "Species" but didn't love it, not even close. I also didn't abhor "League of Extradinary Gentlemen" but it'd be a stretch to say I liked it. .... oh, "Romy and Michel's High School Reunion". "The Wrong Box". "Butterfly Kiss". (Dang, Saskia Reeves is a cutie) I know there must be more.

Despite the mixed reviews, I thought Kung Fu Hustle was a great movie.
Despite the generally bad reviews, I also really liked Underworld.

And yes.... I'll admit it. Waterworld was a lot of fun when I first saw it. I still don't dislike it, but I'm not really compelled to watch it again... I still think that its bad reputation isn't entirely justified, though :-P

I thought it was pretty awful but I thought "The Postman" was a pretty intelligent (albeit irritating in places) and good film. That and my positive opinion of "species" makes me pretty alone in the world.

Does Buckaroo Banzai qualify for this category?

Plan 9 From Outer Space, of course.

Hey! That's a very funny movie! In fact, I'm gonna go over there right now and give it a high rating!

I have to say I may have been the only person who thought that The Ninth Gate was a fine movie. (And no, that's not just because I am a Polanski groupie.)

LoL...Buckaroo Banzai. *snort*

Hm, I liked The Ninth Gate until it descended into sex (I don't say this often, lol). But I'm a Depp groupie, and seriously envy his wifey. *sniffle* He should be mine! *snicker*

Hmmm...I liked Time Cop 2: The Berlin Decision. It surpassed the first one, and I'm not just saying that because Jason Scott Lee is an all-time hottie! ^_^

Hmm...trying to recall the movies I've seen in theaters. I liked The Man Who Cried, but I've heard people say it was total crap. It's in my top five "most erotic scenes." ^_^

I, oddly enough, really liked George and the Jungle. Don't know if I still do...but it was something I rewatching several times a few years ago.

Use your judgement. BB is well liked (I'm the only one I know who didn't like it) but then none of my movies are "bad" either.

W. Box, Butterfly Kiss, were "bad" but by my standards they were flawed but I loved them anyway. R&M highschool reunion wasn't "bad" either but it's not the type of movie I like and I really liked it a surprisingly lot. Postman, Species, and League of XGmen, are all definately universally hailed as "bad" and I didn't "love" them. I didn't even like them. But I thought they were all better than the average of their type and Postman and Species were actually good. (League of XGmen was pretty damned bad but it was without question the best summer action movie I've ever seen; a category I utterly despise more than all other.)

Teknolust, Concieving Ada are kind of neat even though they are pretentious.

Both "Buckeroo Banzai" and "Romy and Michelle" are fun. The movie I saw with my friends that I alone thought was a hoot was "Transylvania 6-5000" (except for the ending). All my friends thought it was lame and a waste of their money.

Transylvania 6-5000 is a much better example than Buckaroo Banzai. Of course, one could list other bad Geena Davis movies just because they had Geena Davis in them (Earth Girls Are Easy, Cutthroat Island).

Huh? The concept of a bad Geena Davis movie is an impossible one. Like a round square or a square circle or a world where 13 isn't prime. All her movies are graced with her prescence. And "Earth Girls Are Easy" was delightful and fun and silly.

Just thought of one...But don't know the name. I just recall it had three? teenagers end up being turned into mutants. Two were siblings, I think, and became attached to each other. Other mutants included a man with a giant nose for a head, a giant worm, a cow, etc.

Awful movie really...but I loved it. Loved the weird Chevy Chase movie that reminds me of it, too. Nothing But Trouble.

Mom and Dad Save the World.

80s pop movies I absolutely adore, to this day...Breakfast Club, and more so, Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead. Okay, so DTMtBD is 1991...it's got all the 80s culture earmarks! Molly Ringwald...man, I even like this bit of drivel.

Does it surprise anyone that I even like Buffy the Vampire Slayer? Hah! I think I was born a little too late to enjoy the 80s, and make up for it via depthless movies. ^_^

Okay, I've been looking for some bad movies I can watch, and coming across a bunch of horrors that were just too bad to watch.

Checking out some new releases, I found a foreign film set in Las Vegas, which reminded me of this movie that came out a few years ago in theaters (think it was an independent, but may not have been) that I had wanted to see...badly (for whatever reason)...never did...and still bloody can't remember. Maybe there was eye candy there. Maybe not. :P All I can recall about it was a bunch of Asian kids in Las Vegas. Helpful, no? Or maybe it was just another large city with lots of bright lights! Either way, I think they all fell down the rabbit hole...

But this led me to attempt, half-heartedly, to look for it. Looking at Comedies first (eh, why not? Those were the days when I loved comedies), I saw, "Urban Comedies." I was born blonde, and have been attempting to red myself of it every since, so I naturally though, "Oh! Comedies that take place in cities!" Uh...no. Apparently, these are comedies along the lines of "Are We There Yet?" and Chapelle's Show. When did African-American comedies become "urban"? Quite a few of them even take place in the rural south!

Is this just a blonde moment, or a sign of aging?

SPACEBALLS is definitely one movie that I enjoyed that got terrible reviews; I'd but it below THE PRODUCERS, BLAZING SADDLES and YOUNG FRANKENSTEIN on the Mel Brooks list, but I liked it more than HISTORY OF THE WORLD PART ONE. (Even I won't defend ROBIN HOOD: MEN IN TIGHTS, tho').

Best of the Best makes me cry big gobby man tears at the end and I love it for that, much the same way I do with Transformers: The Movie.

I will!
That was a great movie! Funniest thing I'd ever seen at the time. I loved it - and still do!

But yes, it's a very bad movie. I can't really say why I love it - some people say I have a juvinile sense of humor, and they're usually right.

That's right there with "Dudley Do-Right" on the list of movies I love yet cannot defend....
