Re: What's Your Favorite 'Bad' Movie?
Attack the Gas Station 2, though I have no idea how it was received in its native South Korea.
I loved Down Periscope as a kid and had the pleasure of watching it on Netflix a few weeks back and I wasn't disappointed. My kids liked it too, so maybe that's gonna be a traditionally beloved piece of crap.
Tommy Lee Jones was delightful to watch in Man of the House. Emotionally repressed no nonsense Texas Ranger is forced to bunk with a bunch of college cheerleaders who witnessed a murder. Gimme.
Kurt Russell is my favorite good "bad" movie star: Big Trouble in Little China, Escape from New York, Overboard. I mean really Kurt, what happened?
Oh! And don't forget the ever charming and highly underrated John Belushi in Continental Divide. His death robbed all of us of a timeline in which Will Ferrell isn't considered funny, and I'm not sure I can forgive him for that. Him, or John Candy. Cool Runnings taught me about perseverance in the face of adversity and how to use a hot plate in a hotel room to cook sausages. WTF guys, you left us all behind.
I also have learned to enjoy an assortment of intellectually stunted kiddie flicks because my brood are all under five. For example, I just sat through my fifth viewing of Rio of the past three days. I've actually started liking Will.I.Am's music, though I suspect this is just a mild case of Stockholm Syndrome...
