Heavy Metal is indeed a cult classic. You will find many people who love that movie, although I can understand not recognizing it, it is almost 30 years old now.
I always liked it, although a few of the segments are a little too crazy (the coke snorting aliens for example), but some are pure gold, like the shorter B-17 story : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rWh4Ux_Vlq4

Why? It's not that obscure a movie. South Park even recently parodied it.

I never actually saw the movie myself. However, here is the cover. A woman riding a yellow dinosaur.

I recently caught "Howard the Duck" on TV and remembered how much I enjoyed it once upon a time.

Heavy Metal is fucking epically awesomely fantastically great. Okay, some bits of it are a little dumbish, but HANOVER FIST! I mean, really. :)

For a cult film? Especially a cult film based on a fricken Magazine? Yes.

For a mainstream film? No. But, we are talking about a film released in 1981. The fact that it's remembered is remarkable in and of itself. I mean, how many of these films have you heard of before?

Then pick a span of early 80s movies. My point is that though there are thousands of movies released every year, hundreds of which make it to international markets and so on, a scant handful are remembered more than twenty years later. Heavy Metal is almost 30 and still remembered by some people, so... it's no Star Wars, nor is it a Rocky Horror, but it has it's fans. Unlike, say, S.O.B. which is likely only remembered due to Julie Andrews going topless.

I'm with you mosc... he seems to pick terrible movies but at the same time, I enjoy most of them.

For me, this has to be ballistic. It was absolutely terrible but watch it with friends and you just crack up.

Many in this thread have mentioned Fifth Element. I don't nowadays dare to say aloud that I like it, because so many consider it a bad movie - but, well, I do like it, can't help it, and don't actually understand what's so wrong with it.

But my truly awful movie confession is this: I like Interview with the Vampire. In a sort of twisted way though - every time I watch it I find myself howling of laughter in several (inappropriate) places. Luckily nobody wants to see that movie, so it's my back up, should a need for solitary, hysterical laughter arise - my giggling fits would probably ruin even the rest of the movie for anyone who might like at least bits of it.

All but six. :) And five of those are in the last 15. Of course, I have the (dis)advantage of having been alive then, unlike a vast majority of the forumites.

Enjoyably shitty films

Postby Zohar » Sun Jul 09, 2017 2:29 pm UTC

Valerian: City of a Thousand Planets is coming out soon and I'm SUPER EXCITED for it. It looks exactly like the sort of terrible film I'd be really into. Is anyone else looking forward to it? And what other terrible movies have you enjoyed? I'm hoping it comes close to Jupiter Ascending, which was truly garbage and amazing.

Yes, I was tricked by imdb to see that Luc Besson has directed another sci-fi save-the-universe film. I do have my reservations though, because the trailer suggests it's all so serious. I hope the film itself will show us society, like Fifth Element did.

KRULL!

This cheesy 1983 Star Wars rip-off (okay, maybe not a rip-off, but definitely influenced by it) came out in my first year of high school, and my sisters and I saw it in the theater four or five times--my sisters because they were obsessed with the wedding dress in the film, and me in a vain attempt to figure out all the stuff that didn't quite add up. For some reason, my sisters didn't appreciate my helpfully pointing out the numerous plot incongruities, or providing suggestions for improving the movie. (Their loss, dammit.)

I loved this spoiler-filled but hilarious retrospective of the film, too--oh, wow, the use of that iconic 1980s Nestle White Chocolate ad audio in it is pure genius!!!--or you can find the full movie on YouTube. Enjoy.

It is the adaptation of a comic series; I don't think the original content is especially humorous (but I haven't read it).

The Brendan Fraser version of The Mummy. Yes, the plot was kind of absurd, but it was a fun movie. The recent remake completely missed what made that movie so enjoyable.

Yeah, we had much more actual discussion in threads back in the aughts. And a forum link on the damn comic page.

Well since this thread has been resurrected.

Tremors (I argue this is Kevin Bacon's finest movie)
Tremors 2: Aftershocks
Tremors 3: Back to Perfection
Tremors 4: The Legend Begins
Tremors 5: Bloodlines

Tremors 6 is announced for release in 2018
Also a 13 episode TV series on syfy

Similar to your Tremors love, I did like Stargate in all it's various forms. Only had one actual movie but had some made-for-TV movies later on too. Seen em all. RDA > * though I have to say whatever Stargate: Universe was supposed to be, it was not good. No, that's putting it too nicely.

EDIT: Apparently there's a new series: "Stargate: Origins" coming out??

I'm a huge stargate nerd. Seen every episode of SG1, Atlantis and Universe at least twice (SG1 I've probably seen every episode 3 or 4 times). I used to put them on as background noise in college while studying. If you do a forum search I actually was just asking for other TV show references because I was afraid I may end up binge watching SG1 and Atlantis again.

I was a little disappointed with where the SG1 storyline went in the end though.

Here is an article on Stargate Origins

Looks like there will be ten episodes that are each 10 minutes long. Not a huge production effort but it will make fans happy. The picture looks like it takes place in Egypt. Probably has to do with the Ra rebellion.

So you dodged the obvious question. Did you "like" Stargate Universe? I mean, I liked the episode where RDA guest starred but that almost proved the point of how ridiculously bad the rest of it was. The whole stuff falls well under "bad movies/shows you love" for me, but SG:U was so bad it's most entertaining value was watching to point out all the stupid things that were done better in SG1 and SG:A. I also agree the ending of SG1 got a little wonky but I really thought Ben Browder was solid and like I said before, the whole thing was kinda campy anyway.

Stargate Universe was getting better, some of the later episodes were even actually good.

Although, the best episode is the one where all the annoying characters die gruesome deaths.

On the gripping hand, the worst episode is the one where all the annoying characters die gruesome deaths and then it's revealed to all be a timeloop and the episode ends with the status quo conserved.

Sorry, I glossed over the "SGU was worse than bad movies you love" part.

For me, SGU was a means to a guilty pleasure end. I watched it because I craved SG so much that it satisfied me. There were definitely times where I got frustrated or annoyed. But part of that was the game they were playing with your mind in getting you to like or hate the different characters. (definitely found myself swapping allegiances more than a couple times). One thing I noted was the darker take SGU had. As wikipedia notes: "The show was intended to have a darker tone than its predecessors and delve more into the humanity of the characters and their relationships with each other." To me this is probably what turned a lot of diehard SG fans off to it. In some ways the character building and dark undertones had a battlestar feel to them.

IMO the stargate franchise reached a peak in Seasons 8 and 9 of SG1 running concurrently with seasons 1 and 2 of Atlantis. And really, the only reason I enjoyed SG1 Season 9 was because of the Arthurian legend references.
