    Titanic 🙂

    Without A Clue – Michael Caine as Sherlock Holmes – his worst performance since Jaws, The Revenge.

    The original evil dead and it’s sequels. Brilliant

    The 3 Thunderbirds films, a huge amount of work in the gerry anerson ones, but poor story lines, but extremely wartchable, the third just poor acting but plenty of action.

    Just put this on, actually. I was discussing with the wife how it’s the only film I can think of that aims to be simultaneously a spoof and a serious action movie and achieves both brilliantly. It’s a perfect film.

    Spot on! It’s at once awful and awesome! I love it for that.

    Leviathan. Actually, had it not been released in the same year as ‘The Abyss’, it might have been quite good. Any movie going up against something directed by James Cameron and starring Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonio, Ed Harris and Michael Biehn was in for tough competition. I still love Richard Crenna’s (of the Rambo movies) line – “Natura non confundenda est. Loosely translated: Don’t F*** with Mother Nature”

    The Holiday, cheesy yet heart warming chic flickness.

    SST is not awful!

    It’s a work of genius.
    The fact it’s such a subtle parody makes it even better.

    Snakebite, Dog Soldiers was epic. The Howling and An American Werewolf in London were for wimps by comparison.

    Pfft! Rubbish! They bottled it! An utterly ludicrous film and then that all die anyway. I is disappoint! I wanted a completely unbelievable happy ending. Now excuse me while I have a little cry

    Oh, forgot Highlander.
    Come on, it’s a bloody awful film!

    Oh, Predator too, which is enjoyable if you’re heavily sedated.

    Highlander? Oh yes awful, awful film, but love it!

    The revenge of Billy the kid. Probably the best bad film ever.

    A Knight’s Tale. On now, too.

    “Chaucer’s the name, writing’s the game”

    Epic badness, but awesome.

    I have to drink a bottle of Absinthe before I can open the DVD case though……

    I was thinking of this one but couldn’t remember the name.

    Enter the Dragon, was on recently. Terrible movie, but totally awesome. Bruce Lee’s physique is amazing

    A Knights Tale is brilliantly bad flashy! Makes you wonder what they were thinking, but I’m glad they did! 🙂

    Flash Gordon – Can’t believe the thread has got this far, mentioned several classic films & not mentioned that…

    I have a soft spot for a knights tale as my wife and I watched in hospital waiting for my first daughter to be born, in a ward on our own was a nice bit of light relief and will always be crap but totally ace at the same time….

    Any film with Steven Seagal in it. You have no choice but to look on in bemused horror.

    It’s pure poetry in Hard to Kill when he wakes up from his coma sporting a beard and a beer belly

    They Live.

    I suspect that those that appreciated Iron Sky will love it!

    Bit of an Indiana Jones rip off with Matthew Mcconaughey in it so it should be shite… but somehow its awesome

    Highlander – Sean introduces himself to the french sounding clansman as a Spaniard – Priceless

    Galaxy Guest but rather deliberate.

    5th Element is a brilliant film for the reasons mentioned above

    Can probably add Shaolin Soccer to the list that I’m watching now, & it’s follow up Kung Fu Hustle..

    Priest – oh so wrong but it just works (provided you like vampire movies adapted from graphic novels…)

    Kung Fu Hustle is absolute genius, no way it should be on this list!

    Didn’t realise it had a prequel/sister film though, must get it watched!

    Kung Fu Hustle is absolute genius, no way it should be on this list!

    It is a great film – Shaolin Soccer is currently on Netflix.

    Bad Boy Bubby. Not sure this qualifies either but it’s properly twisted.

    Showgirls, although not sure it doesn’t go all the way back to being awful again.

    Never Back Down. Laughably horrendous, but upsettingly entertaining. It’s like Fight Club without the plot.

    This one so needs to star Troy McClure….
