Bad, Bad, Bad

June 8, 2011

Today I was thinking about movies that I like that I KNOW are terrible.  What compels me to watch these cinematic monstrosities?  Oftentimes it is just a nostalgic feeling.  As a kid I had no idea these movies were as bad as they are.

– Howard The Duck- The movie that made me write this post.  It’s bad.  It is the complete antithesis of the source material.  But I like it. Plus it’s the one movie that makes me lust after Lea Thompson.

– Joe Dirt- This movie operates on the principle that if you watch something on basic cable enough times you will eventually enjoy it.  I enjoy this movie against my will.

– Jackie Brown- It’s the one Quentin Tarantino movie that I KNOW is terrible. But it’s got two things I like: Samuel L. Jackson saying all his dialogue very loudly and Bridget Fonda in a bikini top.
