    What is a movie that is so bad, it is good?

    I am not sure if everyone has experienced this. I find that most people have at least one movie they can say was so awful that they ended up enjoying it. I have a few but the one at the top of my list has to be Super Mario Bros. (1993). I remember watching this as a kid and thinking "What is wrong with Yoshi!?" and "Why is King Koopa a MAN!?". The movie is pretty bad but as bad as it was/is, I still find myself enjoying it today.

    What is one movie you consider to be bad but it was so bad, you actually ended up enjoying it?

    Haha, I loved that Super Mario Bros. film as a kid, and yeah, I thought the same things but found it genuinely enjoyable. I think it gets way too much flak because of its inaccuracies, often by the kinds of people who think any adaptation has to be at least 95% (or more) faithful to the source material. I saw it as more of a retelling of the Mario story (which it had little of anyway) than anything.

    It's a good question. I may need to bring up Clownhouse from the '80s again, though in some ways it's actually a half-decent film. Generally speaking however I think many cheesy and half-baked horrors from the 1970s and 1980s are brilliant for those nights when you can't be arsed watching anything serious.

    An anime "so bad it's good" example would be the film Gyo: Tokyo Fish Attack which I watched some months ago with a few guys on this board. The plot is in the title. It's just about sharks and other fish invading Tokyo and stinking it up with lots of grotesque scenes showing the characters being assimilated by them. It was heavily panned by critics, but I think many of them just need to chill the hell out and enjoy something stupid every now and then.

    It basically has no plot, just plain absurdity and that's the damn point of it! Terrible in some ways, but strangely funny as fuck and I thoroughly enjoyed it.

    Boy oh boy, do I have some for you!

    There is a movie called "Thou Shalt Not Kill...Except" an incredibly low budget movie. How low budget you ask? Well, the movie opens up in the Vietnam war but it's clearly obvious that it's actually in some woodland area in Michigan. The movie is about some old Vietnam veteran who get together only to have it interrupted by some crazy cultist led by Sam Raimi, who is known for directing the Evil Dead and the first 3 Spider-Man movies. Sam Raimi is one of my big heroes but I must admit that his dorky, nasaly voice makes him one of the least intimidating movie villains ever. The middle of the movie kind of forgets about the cult and is just the buddies just trying to get laid and getting pissed drunk which has nothing to do with the rest of the movie other so this one gag could have a pay off. The last half of the movie is what I can only describe as a live-action episode of Happy Tree Friends as it involves the bad guys getting killed in some of the most absurd and cartoonish methods. It also has one of the goofiest yet awesome one liners which you can hear in the trailer.



    Another fun one is Strike Commando. If you used to watch The Spoony Experiment back in the day, you might've heard of this. It's a Rambo:First Blood Part 2 knock off from Italy and it's a hoot to watch.

    That looks bloody hilarious. It's decided: we're watching that next weekend.

    Oh, you're in for a treat with that one. Maybe we should throw in Strike Commando too while we're at it.

    Oh, there's one more I want to add; Rock and Roll Nightmare. The movie is basically a slasher movie with weird penis monsters but the ending is...well, just watch for yourself.

    Oh God yes! Vampire's Kiss is pure gold from start to finish. You're in for a good time when Nic Cage goes full hot-blooded. I believe that everyone needs to see that movie before they die.

    I am going to have to check out Vampire Kiss. I have heard about it being really bad to the point where you just can't look away like a train wreck LOL!

    I am going to look for some older movies I remember enjoying that got horrific reviews. I know there are more.

    I've got one, actually two, it has a sequel...Attack of the Killer Tomatoes and Revenge of the Killer Tomatoes. It's all about mutant tomatoes killing people it's a low budget 70's film which was originally made as a thriller but the film was really bad that it accidentally became a comedy. If you haven't watched it, well you should.
