I haven't even heard of most of those.

Bucky Katt: I haven't even heard of most of those.


You haven't heard of Starship Troopers?  Anyway, it was a fantastic Satire in the mode of much of Verhoeven's work.  Most critics didn't get it, tho'.  Doesn't belong on the list.

Ten movies? As far as I could tell, that list was only three movies long.

Oh, I'm supposed to click the "next" button for a 10-item list? Fark you.

Starship Troopers is a work of art. So 'bad' it's good, but completely intentionally.

Great cast, too.
 
2014-07-07 12:55:25 AM  
I actually saw Wrong Turn once.  It is a bad movie but, it has Eliza Dushku..

I enjoyed it as well.

Thirded. My only problem with the movie was the fact that during the first battle they have portable nukes but then never use them again until the very end.


Bucky Katt: I haven't even heard of most of those.


Troopers and Wrong Turn were the only two I've heard of.
 
2014-07-07 01:38:04 AM  
One list of 'ten movies that are so awful, so terrible, and so unwatchable that they're almost good' that is so awful, so terrible, so unreadable... That's it.

He did say "most" which, as far as I can tell, doesn't mean "any".

Prophet of Loss: Starship Trooper as its moments. (NSFW)


I watched it in one of the theaters on Ft Knox.  Me, my friend Nate, and about 200 young soldiers fresh out of basic training.  One kid down in front stood up during that scene and shouted at the back, "Hey, Sarge, why can't we have that?"

The whole showing was like a giant, live MST3K...

Star Crystal.

Because.


It took a long loooooooonnnngggggg time for my townie buddy to live that one down.

I think those fell a little flat too.

List fails for including Starship Troopers and Wrong Turn

and not including anything from best of the worst
 
2014-07-07 01:56:31 AM  
I don't think Wrong Turn is a bad movie so much as it just retreads a standard horror movie formula. It's in the Hills Have Eyes category but brings absolutely nothing new to the table and does not do anything particularly well.  The Conjuring is an example of a movie that retreads old ground but does it so expertly that it works well, proving that it can be done but Wrong Turn didn't do it.
 
2014-07-07 02:06:12 AM  
Ghost Dog is my guilty pleasure 'bad' movie.

I have made everyone I know watch it by now I think. It gets better every time.

Well, at least they're real.

I've only seen Starship Troopers (i love that movie), and only about Double Dragon and Street Fighter: Legend of Chun Li (which must be terrible if it beat out the original Street Fighter movie)

If it were my list it would be most like this:

Super Mario Bros.
Howard the Duck
Maximun Overdrive
Waterworld
Willow
Reign of Fire
Basketball
Big Trouble in Little China
Suburban Commando
Bulletproof

/in no particular order.
 
2014-07-07 02:20:02 AM  
Waterworld is a good movie. Not great, but definitely not in the so bad its good category.

Willow and Big Trouble in Little China are awesome. I also kind of liked Reign of Fire.

Greetings, Mr. Costner.
 
2014-07-07 02:26:23 AM  
DNRTFA but Time Bandits would be at the top of my list in this category, sneaking in ahead of Howard the Duck.
 
2014-07-07 02:28:56 AM  
Remember Ishtar? The director has said "If as many people went to see it as hate it, we would have been a success."

9 out of 10 movies on that list didn't even rate that highly.
 
2014-07-07 02:33:22 AM  
Okay, we all know there is, like, a whole industry of movie reviewers who do nothing but watch and critique bad movies, right? Beyond MST3K and Red Letter Media and Cinema Snob and Nostalgia Critic and Spoony (or anyone else at Channel Awesome).......

This list is like someone writing a "Top 10 songs that use an electric guitar" without recognizing the existence of rock music.
 
2014-07-07 02:34:08 AM  
I liked Reign of Fire and Baseketball.  Waterworld isn't nearly as bad as its reputation suggests.
 
2014-07-07 02:36:56 AM  
Starship Troopers
Big Trouble in Little China
Time Bandits

are 'bad' movies? Who knew?!

My Five Cheese recommendations:

Hell Goes to Frogtown
Barbarian Brothers
Get Crazy
Battle Beyond the Stars
Sorceress

You're Welcome

9.S.W.A.T.: Firefight
8.Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li
7.Starship Troopers
6.The Right Temptation

2014-07-07 02:56:12 AM  
I have a soft spot for Hudson Hawk. Especially Richard E Grant's  scenery chewing.
 
2014-07-07 02:57:23 AM  
Chun-Li is bad but Chris Klein's dialogue is AMAZINGLY bad, so bad I watch it every time it's on.
 
2014-07-07 02:58:18 AM  
How the Hell is Sharknado not at #1?
 
2014-07-07 02:58:33 AM  
I have Street Fighter Chun Li in my movie collection. It's been a few years since I saw it but I now want to go and watch it. Kristen Kreuk, drool ... can't find good bikini pics of her though

GungFu: Starship Troopers
Big Trouble in Little China

are 'bad' movies? Who knew?!


I will fight anyone who says Big Trouble in Little China is a bad movie.

I concur.  That movie was awesome.  So many wonderful movie quotes.

Didn't Verhoeven swear off irony after that one?  On the other hand,  serves the studio right for handing Heinlein's work to someone who hated and opposed everything about it.

Hmmm...  I wouldn't call it a flop, but I won't shower her with praise either.
 
2014-07-07 03:44:36 AM  
Okay, it mentions an 'infamous line' by John Barrowman that was the best line in Shark Attack 3, but if it's in the video clip, I can't tell.  That clip was TERRIBLE.

The only one on the list I've seen was Starship Troopers, and it doesn't belong on the list.  I did think the violence was a bit much, but the satire of fascist propaganda was hilarious enough to make up for it.

Big Trouble in Little China a bad movie?  "Now this really pisses me off to no end!"

Time Bandits was also a great movie.. though when I saw it in theaters as a kid, the ending left me confused.

This.

Even a Cracked "article" would only be 2 pages. (still 1 too many).

 Exorcist II; The Heretic. How can a movie with Louise Fletcher and Richard Burton be this bad?
