Tossin’ It Out There: What’s YOUR Favorite “So Bad It’s Good” Movie?

This weekend’s review of “Resident Evil: Retribution” drew some interesting reactions, a number of which touched on the patented FMR “Split Grade”.

There’s really no other way for me to convey the phenomenon. There are some movies that defy conventional logic. The acting is bad – often atrocious. The script is laughable, maybe the special effects are substandard… but instead of being angry, or disappointed, you’re laughing. Having fun. And when it’s done, you’re like, “That was terrible. I loved it!”

So many movies wind up “failing hysterically” that it should almost be a sub genre of its own. There are classics, such as “The Room” or “Troll 2″, and any number of additions annually. This year alone brought “Battleship” and “Resident Evil: Retribution”, just off the top of my head.

What are YOUR favorites? Everyone has one or two! What movies absolutely stink, but you love watching them anyways, because they’re so funny?

What’s YOUR favorite “So Bad It’s Good” movie?

Resident Evil: Retribution

“Resident Evil: Retribution” is the latest installment in the Paul W.S. Anderson / Milla Jovovich “Resident Evil” series.

I had never seen a “Resident Evil” movie prior to this one. So my review (sadly) will be unable to touch on things like continuity or consistency between films.

I can tell you however that “Resident Evil: Retribution” is a dumbly plotted, horribly acted film laden with ridiculous action sequences and ludicrous creature designs that have a tenuous connection to reality at best. By any objective qualitative measure, this movie fails. It’s poorly scripted, acted, and directed. It is literally laughably bad.

And as such, I loved every minute of it. I can’t wait for the next installment, and intend to catch up on the previous chapters ASAP.

The 2012 Fall Movie Preview – Part I

With this weekend’s release of “The Expendables 2″ and “ParaNorman”, the summer movie season is pretty much over. One weekend remains in August, and those movies wont have much room to run before school is back in session.

Nope, the season of the big blockbuster is behind us. It’s time to look ahead to the fall.

Not to despair, though, the fall brings sharp movies for the thinking movie fan. Movies which may have more selective box office appeal, but which may be some of the best movies all year.

So click through to take a look at the first part of this year’s fall preview. Today we’ll look at the last week of August, plus September, and then we’ll come back tomorrow with October and the first week of November. Together they’ll take us right up to the start of the Holiday movie season, and the November 9th release of Skyfall!
