in college i was what was known as a "terrible film major", or by some "a person who "lacks taste" or "sucks". these opinions and labels came from my absolutely horrendous taste in movies (i have never seen alfred hitchcock's 'psycho' but i own both live action scooby-doo moveis). it isn't because i don't have an appreciation for the classics or those films that are considered essential to a well-rounded and respected knowledge of film i just have a different preference for films, films that most people look down upon; however within the right circles i am considered quite the authority on these schlock films, and i'm fucking proud of that. just because you dont get it, or just straight up don't like it, doesn't make 'the evil dead' and less than 'casablanca'.

so i put it to you, fellow movie-goers and bosskey inhabitants. What are your favorite "bad" movies (anywhere from B to Z list), what are your guilty pleasure films? why do you love them? why are they considered bad? why your movie is the "worst" out of all of them? and who the hell decided it was bad in the first place?

HMM!

I can't say with authority that this is really a terrible movie, but a lot of people seem to hate National Treasure. I thought it was pretty good! Completely absurd and all, but pretty neat!

Super Mario Brothers movie, Eragon...My offline friends don't usually like the movies I like and they are all in to horror and stuff (I hate most horror movies) so I dunno if the movies I like are bad or just...not horror enough for them XD;

I never saw Eragon, although I thought it might be interesting.

But Super Mario Bros is awful. Irredeemably so. The cast is awesome, though.

Dennis Hopper said this of his role as Koopa:
I made a picture called Super Mario Bros., and my six-year-old son at the time -- he's now 18 -- he said, 'Dad, I think you're probably a pretty good actor, but why did you play that terrible guy King Koopa in Super Mario Bros.?' and I said, 'Well Henry, I did that so you could have shoes,' and he said, 'Dad, I don't need shoes that badly.'

first off, love the quote Joshura. secondly, Super Mario Brothers was and AMAZING movie, and its one of those films that teases you for a sequel (which i still havent given up hope on since it seems that no media is safe from a sequel, prequel, or "reimagining" nowadays). what i like about that movie is that it took strides in both special effects and costuming, without which we wouldn't have gotten movies like the matrix or the LoTR series.

speaking of video games turned into moveis, has anyone ever seen the house of the dead movie? apparently even that movie gets a sequel! if you havent seen it i highly recommend it for the sheer pleasure of bashing your head against the wall.

*cries tears of joy* I have never met anyone else who actually liked that movie!

It isn't really a bad movie (I don't think so at least) but Return to Oz is like...my favorite movie ever and hardly anyone has seen it. it's much darker then the fun original oz film...and it sticks more to the book (a few books actually)

House of the dead sounds familiar...my friend may have made me watch that one

i just remember being so into the arcade game (i beat it...not to toot my own horn) and then sooooo excited to find out that they turned it into a movie! but the movie was so rough for me. i mean the plot line of the actual game is so good. 2 men storming an abandoned aslyum to save the girl and then kicking zombie/moster ass. PURE GOLD! but in the movie version its on an island and all the people are spring breakers...broke my fucking heart!

as for return to oz...i have never seen it but i have heard good things, i'll have to add that to my list. when was it made? i have really been into these darker(more realistic?) re-imaginings mostly the Nolan Batmans and the new Bond movies (though i have only seen casino royale). there is a certain grittiness to these new films that allow them, at least for me, to exist in my reality as opposed to being the campy stuff of Burton and Schumacher.

Return to Oz was made in 1985...it is only a little darker compared to the books since they pretty much assume dorothy is crazy and send her to a mental institution to get electro shocked

you know ive never really read the book, but i have been very interested in it for a while. what are your thought on the new oz movie coming out? oz the great and powerful i think it is? looks interesting. excited for tim burton's campy take on oz. and nothing is more awesome then a prequel to a world we all know so well.

I am really excited for it! The more I hear about the witches though the more it bugs me...I hate the thought that the witch of the west was ever good, because she wasn't...but when it comes to movies you gotta give em a break because they are always changing something...why I dunno, but they do. They are taking quite a bit from the books though, so that is awesome.
Tim Burton has nothing to do with it as far as I know, but I am glad for that. It's not that I don't like him, but I just really don't want him touching my Oz. He would probably make Toto dead and Johnny Depp be the Scarecrow (I cant staaaand Johnny Depp being in everything he does!) His style just...doesn't fit; It's TOO dark. They need to find someone who really understands Oz in the way L. Frank Baum meant it to be...which is mainly an adventure, otherworldly, story for children. Back when it was written kids were a bit tougher though...there are some scary creatures in it that would probably send parents these days into a fit! XD

I wonder if what you're hearing is attempt to make her a sympathetic character, only to reveal her true nature in a TWIST!

Have you seen Tin Man? It's interesting... watchable, at least.


So, more to the topic: Dragonball. I saw that in a movie theater with a rather large group of friends, and we found it quite hilarious. A bit of heckling here and there, it was incredible.

It is possible...I hear that one of the 3 witches will turn in to her so...possibly. I just have a vendetta against wicked XD; I am still keeping open to this movie 'cuz it looks awesome!

And yes, I have seen Tin Man! It's interesting...definitely one of the better adaptations (is that the right word? adaptation?) They could have done way better though.

yeah, it's a really strange piece. I did actually enjoy watching it, even if the acting was really... uhm, sub par...

yeah, i just saw that that is on netflix. i think im gunna have to check it out again. i think the first time i watched it was because of some girl back in high school. she was obsessed with the movie. it was like the first movie she had seen that wasn't a hollywood block buster.

i remember the my first movie like that. it was actually a double screening of clerks and donnie darko. again it was because of some lady. but damn those movies changed me.

Sam Raimi is a wonderful man who made such FANTASTIC films like evil dead, evil dead 2, and army of darkness. he also did xena and hercules. more recently...the spiderman debacle and drag me to hell. he is a genius...except for spiderman
