    Well, at least you have a Jean-Claude movie in here, though I would have chosen Bloodsport myself.

    Alien Ressurection was my first movie I ever saw in theater by myself. I remember I was excited because it was my first non PG movie and I think I was really young…around 10. I’d add Street Fighter with Van Damme to this list lol.

    UNDERCOVER BROTHER i cant believe you forgot that one lol

  5. Trekkerbud says:

    I think you missed it with ‘Tremors’ and ‘Starship Troopers’. Yes, they are bad but they belong on a SO BAD THEY’RE GOOD! movie list. Here are my top ten bad but good movies, in no particular order;

    9 to 5
    Army of Darkness
    Flash Gordon
    Remo Williams:The Adventure Begins
    Love at First Bite
    The Beastmaster
    Godzilla: Destroy all Monsters

    Alien Resurrection should have been retitled “Alien Reproduction”. Teehee………I still like it, even though, it’s……bad.


    I did cross that dilemma with Starship Troopers. It was an inward battle against the fact that what’s bad about it is PURPOSELY bad. That being said, it really is up for debate. It’s one of my favorite rewatchable movies. Just thoroughly entertaining.

    I forgot about The Beastmaster! *sigh*

    Starship Troopers has no business being on this list! That is genuinely great film! I wrote a research paper on it in college. May you feel the wrath of Paul Verhoven.

  9. Heather says:

    Lizard King,

    Okay, Okay………..I find that to be understandable to a degree. It was the one I was most conflicted about putting on the list, but it IS kind of a bad movie, even if it was purposely made bad and is way too smart for it’s audience. It’s a clever movie and I love it, and I’m sure I would agree with most of your points as to WHY it’s a good movie. But for now I’m comfortable with leaving it on this list.


    I just hated Into The Blue all together. The only redeeming thing about it was the half naked cast. If that’s part of a basis for an awesomely good movie, then I concede your point. I think Paul Walkers awesomely bad career is better represented through The Fast And Furious franchise myself though.

    You have a right to your opinion

    I can’t believe you included “Don’t Tell Mom” on this list — not because it’s not awesomely bad because I thought I was the only person who’d admit to having seen this! It was a typical teen movie, but I like Christina Applegate. She’s kind of grown out of her Kelly Bundy phase, thank God, and into a very good comedic actress.

    M. Carter

    • Agree with you on that. Christina is a talented comedienne.

  12. I think this list was written to stir a few feathers rather than find the ten worst films ever made. For that I applaud you! :)

    I agree with you on Dude, Where’s My Car but all the rest have, at the very least, some entertainment value. I like your tongue in cheek comments – Don’t Tell Mom is terrible but I remember loving it when I was younger, for example. I do hate Alien 4 and think it deserves it’s place on this list but the saddening fact is the Predator V Alien films have made Alien 4 look better than it is.

  13. Heather says:

    This isn’t a list about the worst movies ever, it’s a list of AWESOMELY bad movies. Movies that suck but we love them anyway. :)

    and then……………….

  14. Starship Troopers and Speed on this list? I mean… I mean… why? Starship Troopers is a great film through and through – it’s one of the best satires I’ve seen in my life. I don’t even remember how many times I’ve watched it, and every time it doesn’t lose its appeal. Back then when it was made, I liked it only because of the action, but as I grew older and really understood it it became one of my favorite films of all time.

    The same goes for Speed. Well, its not smart or witty, it’s just helluva-f***ing-balls-to-the-wall-awesome! Was back then, and still is today. It has a B-film script, but I think it was done extremely well.

    • Heather says:

      I love them both. Each I haven’t seen in eons. Perhaps I would feel differently after watching Starship Troopers, but I don’t think I’d change my mind about Speed.

      Michael Ironside in Starship Troopers is epic.

      • Yup, Jean Rasczak ftw! Haha!

  15. We may need to have another Tremors is not a bad film that is good discussion. It’s just good!
    I like these choices a lot. The only thing missing is, of course, Road House!
    And the only film that doesn’t feel like it fits is Jurassic 3. Not really bad per se… and it gave us terydactils.
