Favorite Bad movies

  • Jul 3, 2010
  • by
In no particular order is my list of movies that I like but aren't too popular by others. Be they funny, campy, or just enjoyable junk. You don't need to have multi million dollar sets or a great script to make the movie fun and the "bad" movies are what helps us remember what the "good" movies are.
1
The Adventures of Ford Fairlane
There was only one adventure for Andrew "Dice" Clay's foul mouthed gumshoe who worked the "Rock N' Roll" beat of Los Angeles. Co Stars Lauren Holly, Ed O Neill and Gilbert Gottfried help the movie along in a case of a missing groupie and a dead rockstar. It's too bad that this movie didn't score at the box office thanks in no small parts to savage critics and protesters of the Diceman cause this could have been his ticket to more and similar movies.
See the full review, ""Hickory Dickory Dock, this movies gonna rock OOOOOOOOHHHH!!"".

Commando
Arnie takes on a literal army to save his cute as a button daughter from Dan Hedaya and his Freddie Mercury looking sidekick. Again, a great cast with Bill Duke, David Patrick Kelly and Rae Dawn Chong help to make this fun. Set as the prototype for 80's action movies of "hero stands out in the open, shoots, shoots and shoots some more, no one can hit him."
See the full review, "Lacking 30% less nutrition then other action movies but has lots of high fructose syrup and sugar.".

The Blues Brothers
Many years too late and another flop at the box office, John Landis and Dan Ackroyd finally got to make their follow up to the classic 1980 musical/demolition derby sans John Belushi. The music is just as good if not better and the jam session at the end is peppered with music legends. The rest of the movie admittedly is a lame retread of the original movie.

Under Siege 2: Dark Territory
If I got to put a Seagal movie on here, this is the one and it's probably my favorite of his. Very enjoyable and high action helps make up for the ludicrous story.
See the full review, "And to believe Amtrak didn't get in on a gold mine in the "action movies on trains" business!".

Happy Gilmore
Likewise, if I have to put a Sandler movie on here, it's going to be my favorite. Lots of the trademarks that made the early Sandler movies fun, with idiot humor, slapstick and more. it's a fun and cheerful movie for the most part, though the extended DVD has the moment I kept waiting for in the theater, which was Happy throwing Ben Stiller out the window.
6
Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
Regarded as the worst of Trek and nearly killed the movie franchise did have some nice ideas going for it especially before needless script rewrites and a slashed budget put the kibosh on most of them. While it's true that if IV was followed by VI, it would have helped strengthen the ideas of VI if this movie was cut.
See the full review, ""Were on a mission from God"".

Such easy choices!
where is HOWARD THE DUCK?
July 17, 2010
Howard the Duck is kinda stupid/fun. I wish Lea Thompson was in more stuff but I think this killed her career for awhile.

She sort of recovered after a while but she never really made a big name for herself after that.
