Spirit of '76

Image

A group of future folks decide they need a copy of the U.S. Constitution, so they plan to travel back in time to 1776. Of course there's a blunder which sends Adam-11 (David Cassidy), Chanel-6 (Olivia d'Abo) and Heinz-57 (Geoff Hoyle) to 1976 by mistake. Somehow under the assumption that they're in a utopian society, the trio of visitors head out to acquire the knowledge they need to save their future.

"hackers" is a laughably terrible movie that i love to hate :) I love Brazil as well but i don't think it's actually a bad movie, the twisted sense of reality is to close to home for many people.

Just off the top of my head:

- Hostel - I haven't seen the sequel yet, but I remember seeing this with a friend and laughing at the film from start to finish. Some people call me twisted for that, but the movie really is godawful.
- Labyrinth - For fantastic times with the 80's, Jim Henson, and David Bowie, watch this movie.
- Pootie Tang- I've sat through this film probably about seven or eight times, and I still laugh at it. There's a scene where Chris Rock is an ear of corn! What's not funny about that?

More to come as soon as I dig through my movie collection.

Probably nobody's ever heard of these movies: Laserhawk and The Insatiable. I wouldn't say I love the second one, but it was surprisingly good.

Also, who keeps saying Waterworld sucks? That movie was awesome! I keep hoping somebody will to make a low-budget sequel about the Mariner's daughter, but it never happens.

Oh yeah, and Underdog: The Movie. And in the same vein: Inspector Gadget (but not the sequel, because that makes me want to gouge out my eyeballs.)

Uhm... please refer to The Fifth Element and Labyrinth mentioned previously. This is a freaking masterpiece. (Other than Willem Dafoe in drag, he really doesn't have the legs for it.)

I'm tempted to say Highlander. I think it was a basically bad movie that really worked, but it's hard to say it's actually a bad movie. What does support calling it bad is the two TV series and five (?) sequels, all of which are such utter tripe that it hurts.

I need to rent Labyrinth, I haven't seen it in decades.

Funny - a lot of the movies mentioned here are really not bad. Clerks 2, Mallrats, The Breakfast Club, BASEketball - all geniuinely great movies.

Now, Plan 9 - that IS a bad movie. And Snakes on a Plane too, which is little more than a bad movie at its heart.

Signs!
If you didn't spend this movie rolling around in your chair trying not to pee yourself laughing, you missed the point.

The first time I watched signs I though "Meh, it was a fairly decent horror/aliens flick, good popcorn fair at least'
the second time "Good lord, how could I have missed how unintentionally hilarious this film is?"

i think i'm gonna get stoned to death here, but i own Batman and Robin and don't hate it... Plus the odd numbered Star Trek films are pretty good too (including Insurrection).

i'm agreeing with the majority on these, 5th Element was great, but I want to pick up on one that was mentioned before but seemingly ignored:

Orgazmo!!!!

Almost everything done by Trey Parker and Matt Stone (including BASEketball) is awesome - never gets as much attention as South Park or Team America though

Batman and Robin is a very, very good movie... if you go into it accepting that they were trying to make a very campy, silly, exaggerated Batman movie ala the Adam West version. If you look at it and go, "If I were trying to make this movie sillier and more campy, what would I do?" you reach the conclusion that the movie is a flawless, absurd roller-coaster.

The 5th Element was a steaming pile of nonsense. It's only real redeeming features are Chris Tucker's scenery-chewing performance and the several examples of good cross-cutting editing technique (which has admittedly been done better elsewhere, perhaps, oddly enough, by "Watchmen", which isn't a movie at all yet). Its story has so many holes you could use it to drain pasta, its imagined future is hampered by odd limitations (flying cars, woo!...which still travel in two dimensions. what) (and it shows its unconventional world in a disappointingly conventional way), it marries a semi-interesting (if incoherent) sci-fi story to a dimwitted Bruce Willis action film (see The Matrix or Dark City for examples of how to genrebend properly with science fiction), it spends the whole movie going for dumb laughs and sex appeal only to demand poignancy at the end on the basis of unearned dramatic change.... Need I go on?

I enjoyed it, because it does that, but I dislike it and I think it's a textbook example of big-budget schlock.

Mars Attacks isn't bad. It' s meant to be an homage to cheesy 50's alien flicks. I thought it did that quite well. Although this is coming from a Tim Burton fan.

But ya, I agree, it's not all that bad. And I do love it. It's just the "worst" movie I could think of at the time that I like. And I was drnuk :mrgreen: Or I might not have posted at all, like the first few times I visited this thread.

Just because it's intentionally bad doesn't mean it's not bad. Mars Attacks didn't say anything about the cheesy 50's alien flicks. It just was one. That makes it bad.

My favorite bad horror movie of all time is "House." Absolutely HILARIOUS.

Versus - hilarious japanese "horror" flick involving a forest where the dead come back to life, most ridiculous action scenes ever.

And really, the epitome of bad/GREAT moviemaking... Troma anyone? Toxic Avenger, Class of Nuke 'em High, Tromeo and Juliet... so many more...

I stand by my opinion that Versus is a great film, and one of Ryuhei Kitamura's best. Not naming the characters is a great thing to do, and the ending was brilliant, even if it had cheesy effects.

The Lost Skeleton of Cadavra

I doubt this has been mentioned and I am far too tired to go check. This is an excellent bad movie as it was made to BE bad. It's really quite brilliant and if you get the dvd it has an awesome commentary track. Unfortunately the film loses steam about half way through and becomes unwatchable.

Also, I agree if anyone put down the Evil Dead series including Army of Darkness

Wait a minute, how on earth have I been ignoring the low-budget kung-fu genre?

Best one I've seen has to be Robo Vampire. See, it's got a robot. And a vampire. But no robo-vampire. Strange? How about that the vampires hop, can be tranquilized with heroin (but be sure not to mix it up with rice powder, because that pisses them off), and come in a convenient bottled format? Also classic: the slowest chase scene ever. Imagine, if you will, a 1950's "I can only take clanky steps once ever two seconds or so" robot chasing a "hop, breathe, hop, breathe, hop, breathe" vampire across a bridge. Eventually, the vampire gains a lead by actually lying down and rolling.

Epic hilarity.

Narsil wrote:The Brain That Wouldn't Die

God damn this is a brilliant movie. (To save my cred I would like everyone to know I saw this waaay before I knew it had been MST3K'd.

It's about a mad scientist keeping alive a woman's head through use of...I think they actually call it "Brain Serum". Meanwhile, the mad scientist is also creating a giant horrible monster he keeps in the closet (the woman, once another body is found, will be a mate for it), and the woman suddenly develops telepathy and forms a bond with the creature.

I mean, I never thought it was a bad movie when I saw it. I enjoyed the hell out of this film.


AHHH!!! I also saw this long before I knew it was on MST3K! I actually have a t-shirt of it. It has to be the all-time best worst movie. I can quote entire scenes, and sometimes I secretly wish they would make a remake and I could play the head.

And now I've completely embarrassed myself.

the best part about the brain that wouldn't die is at the start, you know, the screen is black and it says "THE BRAIN THAT WOULDN'T DIE" and then it goes over the opening credits.. and at the end of the opening credits it 'repeats' and says "THE HEAD THAT WOULDN'T DIE"
