what are the best worst films you have ever seen. Movies that are just so damn bad, that they are fun to watch.
Night of the Lepus
just to start it off.
Anyone seen Gammera? Almost all of those old Japanese kaiju movies qualify, especially when dubbed.
12 to the Moon was pretty enjoyable in its badness, too.
Mame – Lucille Ball
Torch Song – Joan Crawford
Cobra Woman – Maria Montez
I won’t list Glen or Glenda because I like it as being a very personal film form Ed Wood. and Night of the Lepus, seeing those giant rabbits thru the screen door scared the hell out of me.
“I love Doggie Chow too!!!”
Do I dare say Tron? Unless you are either 8 years old or under influence of certain natural stimulants, the movie is unwatchable…I can’t wait for the sequel though…
Tron: Legacy does look interesting.
I wouldn’t say unwatchable.
Diary of the Dead
Casshern (though visually interesting it just sucks)
Not even about to be ashamed that I like this movie – Cannibal Campout.
Laughed my head off each of the six times I’ve watched it.
oh House of the Dead
It’s a toss-up between Point Break, which is simply the best film ever about surfing philosophical bank robbers, or Starship Troopers, the trippiest goulash of bad sci-fi tropes ever rolled into one.
Starship Troopers. I don’t like it and I don’t hate it. When it’s on I don’t plan to watch it, but if I end up catching a bit I end up watching a lot because it makes me laugh, in a good way. What were they smoking when they came up with that one?
Starship Troopers has absolutely no right to be mentioned in this thread. NONE.
Troll 2. Here’s just a sampling of it’s genious. The creatures are called Goblins; no one ever says the word ‘Troll’ throughout the whole film.
Tommy Wiseau’s The Room. Not many films even come close.
Ilsa She Wolf of The SS also.
This scene says it all www.youtube.com/watch?v=QpQVyZ8acoA
If you’re a fan of bad movies and you live in L.A., you might want to check out this series I co-programmed at American Cinematheque: http://www.americancinematheque.com/archive1999/2009/Egyptian/So_Bad_ET2009.htm
Batman and Robin. come on. comic, fucking, gold.
I’d say by default, any cult film should make this list, because they’re usually awesome but with no mass appeal whatsoever.
and of course Troll 2: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Jqp9eXgXYHU
(Highlander did have mass appeal)

Hell yes, horrible yet classic!
and what’s wrong with Tron?
i bet the remake or sequel or whatever it is,it’s gonna be 100 times more idiotic…
Oh, Troll 2! Not only are they called goblins instead of trolls, isn’t some town they go to call Nilbog?! Talk about foreshadowing . . .
Find it on the internet somewhere, it’s out there.
Marvel at Malcolm McDowell, playing a Mick Jagger stand-in named Reggie Wanker, talking to his penis, who talks back.
Then there’s Magic Larry. He’s a guy dressed as a film noir robot gangster with laser-light eyes, who mysteriously appears to sell drugs to rock stars. With his amazing powers, he waves his hand over a giant rock of cocaine, causing it to crumble and spread into a sunburst of perfectly formed lines. This, of course, makes Lee Ving (from the band Fear) freak the fuck out and run out of the room, screaming his head off in terror.
Really, this movie is just so great.

The potential is certainly there for it to be Michael Bay-icized.
The original was a lost of smart-assed fun.
The Wicker Man (remake)
House of the Dead (that’s right Boll gets 2)
Postal definitely had what is probably my favorite scene regarding a parade of children being shot in all of film.
Sorry, Dimitris, but SPAWN was just bad in a bad way… and I love me some Leguizamo any day, but still…
Ralch,c’mon..do you actually want to support the badness of Hulk and Fantastic Four more than Spawn? ;)
I moderately liked HULK (Ang Lee’s, right?). Never saw Fantastic Four… Maybe some day, if only for Chris Evans.
