    A life less ordinary is great one of my favourite films.

    Event Horizon has no place on this thread.

    I watched Armageddon for the first time last week, I think it was just plain awful 😆


    Sorry, but Ski School is a good film that’s good so cannot possibly be included!

    Street Trash, Killer Klowns From Outer Space and that Billy The Kid film, now that’s all bad / good.

    You know,

    I liked Howard the Duck. I think it got a wholly disproportionate panning, it’s really not a bad little movie.

    Demolition Man is not silly! Very astute, very witty. And that dress…


    Dude wheres my car!

    I saw this thread last night….I’m in the “Fifth Element is amazing” camp . The Princess Bride is a classic….
    As most of the films mentioned have a masculine tilt ….
    How about “the Devil Wears Prada” or “27 dresses”, I love those! 😀


    A Knight’s Tale.

    My wife caught me watching a Knights Tale not long ago and relentlessly took the piss for a good few days. I think it is the business.

    got to nominate the Nicholas Cage ‘National Treasure’ movies.

    you’ve got to enjoy the matter of fact way they approach such issues as hacking into Interpol and kidnapping the president of the usa. genius.

    a good romp, nevertheless. 😀


    I’m surprised it took so long for someone to nominate Caddy Shack……..a crap classic! And on a similar theme, how about Happy Gilmour? Another crap golfing movie, so bad, so bad 🙂


    Happy Gilmour is my go-to movie when I just want to put my head in neutral, have a couple of beers and recharge my brain. It’s not It’s A WonderFul Life or Citizen Kane, but it’s harmless enough with some good lines. 🙂

    I think I’d have to veto its nomination as bad, as I don’t think it’s particulalry trying to be good. 🙂

    Premier Icon verses

    Anything from The Asylum studio; where Sharknado, Mega Shark vs Giant Octopus, etc are made.

    I’ve not seen any of them, but their knock-offs of Hollywood films have great titles, must watch some of them sometime;
    = Transmorphers
    = Snakes on a train
    = The 18 year old virgin
    = Alien Vs Hunter

    Its marmite that’s been stored in a jar of pickled onions, but I do put it on every now and then, its strangely hypnotic.

    yeah, pretty much anything with Burt in it ^ guaranteed to be awful, but strangely watchable.

    Crank (and crank 2 actually)…… had no right to be as good as it was.


    Glad to see some love for ‘golden era’ Seagal. Luckily my wife loves them too.

    There’s another classic bit in On Deadly Ground where he beats the shit out of a guy in a bar then says ‘what does it take to change the essence of a man’ and makes him cry.

    Star Ship Troopers – amazing how many people don’t get it.

    They Live – classic.

    Most things with Stathe in are worth a watch – the Crank films are post-modern masterpieces!


    This film (with Danny Dyer) got universally panned the reviews are bloody hilarious:

    Run for Your Wife met with such overwhelmingly negative reviews upon release that the reviews themselves were widely reported in the UK media.[5] The film was variously described as “a catastrophe”, “as funny as leprosy” and “30 years past its sell-by-date”, with The Guardian reviewer Peter Bradshaw saying that it “makes The Dick Emery Show look edgy and contemporary”.[6] The Independent’s Anthony Quinn wrote, “The stage play ran for nine years – it (the film) will be lucky to run for nine days. Perhaps never in the field of light entertainment have so many actors sacrificed so much dignity in the cause of so few jokes… From the look of it, Cooney hasn’t been in a cinema for about 30 years”.[7] The cameo-heavy cast was commented upon by several reviewers, with the Metro commenting that “no one emerges unscathed among the cameo-packed cast that reads largely like a roll-call for Brit TV legends you’d previously suspected deceased”.[8] The Daily Record described the film as “an exasperating farce containing not one single, solitary laugh. Comprised of people losing their trousers and falling over, the film looks like a pilot for a (mercifully) never-commissioned 70’s sitcom”.[9]
    [10] As of 18 February 2013 the film has a 0% approval rating on aggregate review website Rotten Tomatoes.[11] The film made £602 during its opening weekend.[12]
