    You know, those movies that are actually rubbish, yet you still like them :D

    Like "Snakes On A Plane" - come on, it was RUBBISH! But at the same time it was awesome, and had you grinning the whole way through!

    What ya got - just for fun! :smashin:

    G.I Joe was heavily criticised especially by the die hard fans of the cartoon but I really enjoyed it.

    Eraser.

    This is far from rubbish (or "tosh"). Like Robocop it's another smart sci-fi satire by Verhoeven, an allegory about WWII fascism and the most subversive Hollywood film the 90s. What other big budget film makes you realise half way through that you've been cheering the bad guys all along ? :facepalm:

    Battlefied Earth. No shame in admitting it, a lot of fun, good sets and SFX rivals much, much higher budgeted movies.

    Preferred the cinema version to the home release version though.

    House of the Dead. Universally hated, but I've watched it more times than I'd like to admit.

    I've never considered that to be tosh... Damn that was such an enjoyable movie from Carpenter. :laugh:

    Ones that I found myself watching over and over again as a teenager but when looking back are absolute garbage were..

    Psycho III
    Leviathan
    Robocop 2
    Powder
    Predator 2
    Hardware
    A film where I can't remember the title but goes something like.... a guy out in the desert (nuclear test area) gets bitten by a snake on the hand and his hand turns into a snake head and they go on a killing spree... Awful stuff! :laugh: (I thought it was called 'The Bite' but am unsure!!)

    How about supposedly great films being crap?


    For example. This is England pretty much gets 5 stars on every review..... I loathe the film.


    Best rubbish films? Hmmm, I'll have to think harder.:)

    These sort of threads always baffle me , if you like the movie they're not rubbish. at least in your opinion. Just sounds like movie snobbery where people pretend that The Godfather is their favourite movie then really they prefer something like Weekend at Bernie's.

    Nothing wrong with Weekend at Bernie's (sequel was poor) - I prefer it to the Godfather!

    Personally I think both are great. Weekend at Bernies is hilarious IMHO, and The Godfather is a superb story and worthy of all accolades.

    Like you say. Each to their own. I never rate a film because it's supposed to be good, I actually watch them and then give an opinion.

    A guilty pleasure is something one enjoys and considers pleasurable despite feeling guilt for enjoying it. The "guilt" involved is sometimes simply fear of others discovering one's lowbrow or otherwise embarrassing tastes.

    This thread is about films that are actually rubbish - bad story, bad acting; just bad. BUT, you still think it's awesome (often because it's so bad, it's good!)

    Like my first example, Snakes On A Plane. Come on, everyone knows this film is rubbish. Crap plot, crap effects, crap story line, crap acting (apart from Mr Jackson of course!), but with all that in mind, it was still awesome!
