Do Not Sell My Personal Information

Bad movies that everybody hates that you love.

  • As the title says. What bad movies do you love that are almost universally hated? I love Hudson Hawk, and I don't give a crap that people hate it. On top of being a live action cartoon and featuring some classic songs, I love Richard Grant's completely over the top performance as Darwin Mayflower.

    Anyone else got some love for utter crap?

    It's completely ridiculous, Bruce Willis sings, and has 26% on Rotten Tomatoes.

    It is glorious.

  • As an adult, it's hard for me to like a terrible movie.

    But I have a ton of nostalgic 80's movies that I still love and will watch every single minute if I see it on TV. I'll think of some more, but off the top of my head;

    Killer Klowns From Outer Space
    Bloodsport
    Road House
    Youngblood
    Weekend at Bernies
    Big Trouble In Little China
    Beastmaster
    Cobra
    Running Man

  • Oh my God it's so easy for me:

    Armageddon.

    I freakin' LOVE that movie and was honestly shocked when I saw that it got a 1 star rating. 1 star!!

    No it was never Oscar-worthy...It was a good popcorn flick and I went into it that way and really enjoyed it. Oh, and Liv Tyler is HOT in it!

    Besides Killer Klowns, most of those are loved by a lot of people. I wouldn't ever say that Big Trouble is a terrible movie...

    What's facinating about Big Trouble in Little China is that for years it was considered a dumb 80's action movie until Carpenter and Russell pointed out that they always intended it as a satire, and that Wang is the actual hero and Jack is his sidekick, not vice versa. The movie really takes on a whole new dimension when viewed that way, and is now considered one of the better films in it's genre, especially for it's time. Hell, it has 82% on Rotten Tomatoes. BTW, yes, I love it.

    Look up the scores on Rotten Tomatoes, not kind.

    My guess is most of us are in the same age range, 40-60, so yes I betcha most of the movies I listed we all love.........but they aren't good movies, and are not only hated by critics, any young person watching these movies would not like them.

    Critic or audience scores? If it's low critic scores, then I don't count those. It's the audience scores that would be an indicator of the movie being truly hated.

    Here is the score for Big Trouble...

  • This is Spinal Tap

    Rocky Horror Picture Show (original) Lots of people loved this but few would admit it.

    Godzilla Movies yes they are corny and have some guys in suits, but he's been selling tickets for 50 plus years.

    Oh and "Fast Times at Ridgemont High"

    Dude.... This is Spinal Tap is MASSIVELY popular. 95% critic/92% audience with an aggregate 8.6 out of 10 on Rotten Tomatoes. It created the mockumentary sub-genre. It does not qualify for this. Also, Fast Times at Ridgemont High is pretty popular, too.

  • "Zabriskie Point" (1970) - a flop of a Michelangelo Antonioni film. Pink Floyd did some of the soundtrack, which of course I also have. But even the huge majority of Floyd fans don't like it! Yet... just looked up Rotten Tomatoes (for the first time ever) and it scored quite well there.

    I went to Death Valley, where Zabriskie Point actually is, with my friend i stayed with in Vegas. It was utterly incredible, as was all of Death Valley. I bought a panoramic photo at the gift shop at Furnace Creek, where the guy in the shop promptly lambasted the film, saying to me "You came here because of that stupid f*&^%&^% hippy piece of crap!?"

    Well, yes, but I came here to see the rest of Death Valley, too! At Badwater (282 feet below sea level), then an hour or so after up at Dante's View, about 6,000 feet directly upwards, from where you can see the entire valley, incredibly "shortened" in view in the ultra-dry air.

    Aros, I loved "Armageddon" too... pure and simple ENTERTAINMENT!

  • Showgirls
    Coyote Ugly
    Cocktail
    Any movie that has a "Dance Off" or "Battle of the Bands" at the end.

    These movies are ridiculous, but every time they are on I find myself watching them with a smile. These movies are similar to "Roadhouse" in that they all take relatively ordinary jobs or hobbies (bar tending, dancing, stripper, bouncer, college band drummer) and portray them as a deadly serious, overly glamorous, existing in a cutthroat and dangerous world you never knew existed.

    The main character is always cheesy as hell; torn between their love interest and their competitive desire to the the best ever... bartender, dancer, stripper, bouncer, drummer... etc.

    In short, the over the top acting and plot take themselves way too seriously...but that what makes them fun and entertaining I suppose.

  • Roadhouse rocks, I'll watch that any time it's on. But I also like Joe Dirt, Deuce Bigalow, Anchorman, 40 year old Virgin etc. And movies that are stupid on purpose like Scary Movie/Airplain/Naked Gun etc. A lot of people hate those movies. Because they don't like fun :2thumbs:

    Better off dead was by no means a bad movie. For me, it was only slightly overshadowed by One Crazy Summer.

    Grandma's boy was pretty meh though.

    Killer Klowns from Outer Space is kind of good even though it is so bad. It's kind of funny and creepy even though it is so stupid and weird at the same time. It's just a combination of a lot of stuff. But I can sort of see the appeal. I feel the same way about it. That's a very mixed bag movie.

  • Every Elvis movie.

    Honorable mention: So I Married an Axe Murderer. 55% on RT? 6.4 IMDB rating? I don't get it. This movie is a masterpiece on par with Citizen Kane. Funny, original, weird and, occasionally, scary. Mike Myers best by far.

    Uh, Armageddon is absolutely a bad movie. It's a classic Michael Bay $h!t. Bloated (151 minutes), tons of explosions, and full of mindboggling leaps in logic (please tell me how it's easier to crash course a bunch of oil drillers who likely didn't have an education past high school to be astronauts vs. crash coursing a bunch of astronauts who had massive amounts of expensive training to be oil drillers).

    Maybe you would be better off watching the History Channel, Super Heros, Syfy, Non Fiction tend to have leaps in them. Besides these guys had to learn how to work in 0 gravity, not fly the aircraft or solve any real navigation issues. I think it was like a few weeks. That might be feasable, the work they did had them in pretty good physical condition. When you deal with a fantasy syfy situation you have to give it a little room, I mean transporters thats not real either, yet but it was used in the 60's in Star Trek and I liked those movies.

    I watched Predator 2 the night I got home after having a vasectomy (stone-cold sober through the op, just a local), and as the dreadful movie sunk floorwards, so did... well, it felt like it, anyway!

    Yea, I just don't think Armageddon is a bad movie. Cheesy? Hell yes. Melodramatic? Hell yes. Over the top? Absolutely.

    But it's entertaining. If it's on the TV in a hotel room I'm staying at and I've got nothing else to do, I'll sit there and watch it for the 3rd or 4th time.

    I feel the same way about early Emmerich disaster films like Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow.... total fluffy popcorn fare, but absolutely entertaining at the same time.


    Now, as far as my favorite "bad movies"

    Showgirls.

    That movie is totally f*** terrible. Maybe one of the worst movies ever made... but Paul Verhoeven has a way with trash that sits just right with me... There was a movie from way back in the 1980's with Rutger Hauer and Jennifer Jason Leigh, called Flesh and Blood, that I feel much the same way about.

    Man, nobody makes tasty trash like that anymore -- I miss it!


    Armageddon is a bad movie. You can like it, but that doesn't make it not bad. I think you're mixing up bad and trashy. Both Armageddon and Showgirls are bad, but Showgirls is trashy, while Armageddon isn't.

    Both Bruckheimer and Bay have a cheese factor that can't be denied, they also both make movies that don't really stand the test of time. In Bay's case, doesn't stand any test of time.

    Armageddon, like Top Gun, Con Air or The Rock is one of these movies. Great action movie for it's time, but hasn't aged well.

  • No movies age well anymore since they crank them out like a Rat with babies these days, unless your a franchise like Marvel or Disney's Pirates people have the next big thing thrown in their face every two months. Star Wars is the same thing, has it aged well or is everyone more interested in the CGI. There has not been anything really ground breaking in a long time.

    Better shows are on Cable these days in a lot of ways.

    Lots of movies age well, that's one of the signs of a great movie.

    I just watched Alien for the first time in over a decade, and was shocked at how well it's aged.........and that was 1979. Gritty, suspenseful and masterfully paced.

    Look at stuff like Black Mirror on Netflix, that will also age well because it's written and shot with that same futuristic gritty dirty vision of what the future looks like, and not just a bunch of green screen CGI puked up all over the place like you're talking about.

    Mad Max Fury Road, Bladerunner 2049, just a couple off the top of my head. Those will age well.

    btw, it's the cheesy dialogue and outdated macho scripts that make movies like Armageddon not age well, not the special effects.

    Better shows are on Cable these days in a lot of ways.

    The idea that all newer movies don't age well and all older movies age well is classic 'In my day' shortsighted thinking. There was utter $h!t that aged ridiculously poorly in the 50s, 60s, and 70s, the benefit is that most of that $h!t is forgotten, leaving mostly only classics to be remembered behind. People forget stuff like that. I can't name a ton of $h!t movies that came out 50 years ago because they were $h!t and well forgotten in the first place.

    The Movie circuit these days is a couple months at most in a theatre mostly, you used to have movie runs that went for much longer. The whole aspect of a Movie was to put people in a theater to see it as it was intended to be seen, on a big screen. Seeing The Good, The Bad and the Ugly in a movie theater was very different then on a television. Star Wars in a theater again much different feeling.

    You sound like a youngster full of himself that knows everything about everyone and anything anyway so I will end it here, until you can see a change in the world and how things operate you can't say you know. Things used to be created for their art and for quality, yes profit was also important, now it's the only thing. Why so many actors have had it with the Movie industry and have quit and yes many again return but the whole feeling is cooperate and not creative now. Also why writing sucks a lot. Why some guys like Mel Gipson are a breath of fresh air, he has his own way of doing things and gets $h!t on for his views but he is a talent. A talent shunned because he has a different set of views and doesn't follow the so called rules of society all the time.


    Oh and yes there have been bad movies made since they figured out 8mm, the ones considered aged well and classic are not the same either. Take Tron versus Star man, Tron was a CGI innovation, but it didn't age well in my book, Starman on the other hand I think has and is a good story. Use these two because Jeff Bridges was in both .



    The whole Alien series had a style to it, the first two were great and then came corporate greed again, Predator again had the same type of thing going 1st was good, second was meh, the transport to the Predator moon one was ok, then we have the whole Alien vs Predator series, again not a bad first cut but like Jason vs Freddy here we go again.

    Oh one more thing, there were a lot of movies that were just Drive in Specials as I call them, something to have on the screen while you were exploring the backseat with someone of whatever you drove. You could tell the parents the movie wasn't great and 90 percent of the time it was the truth even if you never seen anything past the Cartoons during the pre show.

    Oh and you can google Drive Ins I am sure there will be a reference if you need to know what they were.

    I named old and newer movies, so not sure why you directed this at me.

    I think we're both saying the same thing, content is what matters, not the effects. A great movie that stands the test of time doesn't need effects or CGI to hold up, it's the writing and acting that are the deciding factors.

    I agree with you, I was more scooping up your post in replying to chris98251. BTW, I love movies from all eras, people who dismiss anything out of hand the way he does on a regular basis here piss me off.
