    Two movies from the 80’s that are indefensibly bad, but I always watch them when they come on:

    Real Genius

    And

    Gotcha.

    Maybe it’s because they were about college students, and I was the same age as the characters when the movies came out. Maybe it’s because they were silly and hopeful.

    Maybe it’s because I thought Michelle Meyrink, and Linda Fiorentino were adorable in them.

    Anyway, they are awful and I love them without apologies.


    The third movie isn’t as bad:

    Eddie and The Cruisers

    It’s a mess of a movie, but the music is great, and I love the bit about the middle-aged “Wordman” finally making peace with his past.

    And the actress who played Joann was incredibly hot.

    Sgt. Bilko, Pootie Tang, Gentlemen Broncos, RocketMan (1997), Meet the Deedles. I'm sure the list goes on. I seem to love and hate all the wrong movies.

    a friend of mine does a hilarious show about how bad this movie is... David Schmader...


    “What Schmader does is crystallize the consistency of the movie's badness. He brings an organization to your viewing, a recognition that even seemingly innocuous moments are part of an intricate pattern of badness that affects every aspect of the film. It's marvelous.”

    Wasn't sure where to start with this, so I looked up Rotten Tomatoes' 100 worst films. Have only seen one of them (thank goodness), and I didn't like it either (Highlander II: The Quickening. 0% with critics and 23% with the audience.) Checked out their list of 100 best movies, have seen eight of them, only liked five of those. Looked through my DVD shelf. Nope, all winners there unless we want to talk TV shows, because Sledge Hammer! had terrible ratings, was pushed around in the time slots, and somehow still got a second season. It was described as "a sitcom for people who hate sitcoms" so naturally I liked it.

    Decided to try for "obscure movies that I like". The Hit (1984, John Hurt, Tim Roth, Terence Stamp, Laura del Sol, soundtrack by Eric Clapton) is a movie even my friends who write about or work in the movie industry don't remember. So I figured that had to have been a bomb, right? Nope. 7.1 stars out of 10 on IMDB and 87% with critics and 75% with the audience on Rotten Tomatoes.

    Okay, so how about Strange Brew, the Bob & Doug McKenzie movie? I remember it as being... not well done, but I enjoyed it because I liked the SCTV skits. Nope. 6.7 on IMDB, 75% with critics and 83% from the Rotten Tomatoes audience.

    I give up.

    I don’t know if it’s a “bad” film but it wasn’t a box office hit. I thought it was brilliant and I think it developed a small cult following. For all these years since, whenever someone says, “long story short...” I follow it with, “Too late!”

    Nah, that's a classic. John Carpenter and Kurt Russell? One of the best actor/director duos out there. Plus one of the best street fights EVER!!
