Movies that are so bad they are good

Movies that are so bad they are good

I was just thinking about this as I was thinking about the You Got Served South Park episode. The movie You Got Served without a doubt shatters the unintentional comedy scale. Also theres a movie called The Conqueror, an epic about Mongolian Warlord Ghengis Khan starring John Wayne that's about as terrible as it gets and it brings me to tears whenever I see it. Can anyone else out there think of some movies that are so terrible you just have to love them?
Let me be very clear. I AM NOT A 49ers FAN!!!

My personal favorite is Weird Al Yankovic's UHF. I never get tired of that movie.

I too am a fan of "UHF."

I have to say that "Commando" is one of those movies. Along with Brian Bosworth in "Stone Cold."

UHF was brilliant.

One of my faves was Revenge of the Nerds. That movie must have been for $600! There's so many little things going on there, it's great. There's also Big Man on Campus, which maybe 3 people have seen.

Everytime Stone Cold comes on I end up watching it, couldn't tell you why though. My favorite scene is at the end when the motorcycle flies out of the courthouse and blows up the helicopter, only the chopper clearly blows up before the bike hits it. What, great, cheesy action.

Necessary Roughness fills the requirement of so bad it's good I believe. It's hard not to watch a movie that features Sinbad.

I actually find it very, very hard TO watch a movie that features Sinbad. He's one of those people that I just never understood how he got famous. I think he made a name for himself doing stand-up, but his stand-up is so terrible it's almost painful to listen to. Somehow, somebody got the idea that he should get a chance at acting. I find that less terrible, because as long as he's not the main character, you can try to avoid him and hope the movie's good on its own. But in my opinion, Sinbad has absolutely zero talent at anything. Yet he gets to be rich and famous. That's not fair. I can suck at stuff too; why don't I get paid absurd amounts of money for it?

Things I love about Stone Cold:

The totally random shower scene just to show nudity when he enters the compound.

The entire speech about the jackets and how the colors should never touch the ground.

The fact that they they burned Ice and his motorcycle when he dies in the crash.

The high comedy that somehow both Lance Henriksen and William Forsythe were duped into being in this movie.

Boz may just have the fiercest mullet in existence throughout that whole movie.

I've always had a little soft spot in my heart because of Michael Richard's appearance in this movie. I like to think of it as his coming out part. You could really see his gift for physical comedy. Other than that, I don't remember too much about this movie.

I used to catch Monstervision on TNT with Joe Bob Briggs?? They always had some pretty crappy yet entertaining movies, such as Swamp Thing and Toxic Avenger

It's the old 'train wreck' addage, I just can't pull my eyes away.

And the scene in Stone Cold where they burn Ice on his motorcycle is class.

What about anything with Dolph Lundgren? I was watching Universal Soldier the other day, and I just couldn't stop laughing.

Speaking of Dolph, does anyone else think its funny that they made a Punisher movie and no one anywhere mentioned the fact that he had done one in 1989? Its like it never happened. I can't wait for them to come out with a new He-Man movie and do the same thing... that would be great.

Actually, I read somewhere that a new He Man movie is actually in the works, so Dolph's getting screwed twice. Now, as to why they would make a new He Man, I couldn't tell you.

You are correct! Well, I'll be damned. Directed by John Woo. Should be interesting.

Should be massively homoerotic as well. The "secrets" of Castle Greyskull indeed...
