    The New Guy is bad, but just bad enough to be good. It's hilarious.

    I loved this as a kid. That and Tron, which is spectacularly terrible.

    I wouldn't say that UHF is a very good movie, over all; nevertheless I really do enjoy watching it:



    I think the guy in the bar, Al's friend, is he who played the serial killer in The Silence of the Lambs.

    Beastmaster was gold. I loved that movie when I was a kid, right at the time I was learning and playing D&D. As well as Clash of the Titans... but I'm driven by emotion and I refuse to believe that Clash of the Titans is a bad movie. It's great! Some of Ray Harryhausen's best work. And his canon, from a special effects and art direction perspective is greatly influential I would think.

    Crispin Glover and the story revolves around him trying to find the right place to bury his cat.

    My actual favorite bad movie is probably Big Trouble in Little China. I saw it in the theater in 7th grade and my buddy and I thought it was fantastic. Every year or two I have him and another buddy over and we watch Big Trouble, eat Chinese food and drink beer and Scotch. It's always a magical evening.

    I am not sure this one is truly bad. It is not great. But that it is done wholly in languages made up per best guesses at early human languages is compelling. Rae Dawn Chong wearing mostly mud is somewhat compelling too.
