Partly inspired by a segment in Ben Heck's podcast this week, and me watching Total Recall with my big brother this weekend, I'm thinking about arranging a bad-film-night with some friends. 

This idea was further enhanced by me being at the mall with a friend yesterday, and we came across some cheap movies with the most ridiculous titles like "Russian Ninja" and "Attack of the 50 foot woman". These two titles was even packed together, as if there's any genre-overlap between those two titles.

I was wondering if anybody have any recommendations, that fit the statement: "so bad, it's good" 

Personally I would recommend Dracula 3000 for anyone, considering holding a similar movie-night. 
It's really baffling to me, how this movies was ever conceived - or how it was backed with funding at all.

The Jaws sequels.

U.S Seals.
 
Some B, if not C action movie I saw ages ago. It's awesome.

A personal favourite of mine is the Evil Dead trilogy.

Hmm... 
Some parts of Uwe Boll movies? But only those specific parts. As a whole, they're so bad they're beyond the so bad, it's good thing.

@NoDeath:  
Ugh, The Wickerman. Yeah, that's bad - but not really in a entertaining way. It's just dull. 
 
@Asrahn:  
about U.S. Seals. Isn't that the one with Charlie Sheen or something. 
I can't be to sure - has been ages since I saw it... more specifically, I believe it was still new when I saw it. 
 
Edit: no, the one with Charlie Sheen was Navy Seals - and was from 1990. 
U.S. Seal is from 1999

The Wicker Man pretty much wins this thread.

HEH... I actually just thought that was a joke on the Bombcast :-)

Dragon Wars.  It's a horrible, horrible movie about an evil guy who comes back from the past to wage war on modern day Los Angeles with an army of dragons.  Only some moody reporter and a girl who may be a reincarnated princess can stop him.  Dragons fight helicopters and tanks in the city streets, what more could you ask for?  The acting and story are laughably bad but the effects are good enough to save the movie from being complete trash.  Here is a snippet of the movie from You Tube: Dragon Wars Teaser
 
And, if you haven't seen Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun Li that is another I would recommend but only for the Chris Klein scenes.  Everything in that movie was mind-bogglingly bad, but Klein brought it to such another level that I eventually looked forward to him being on screen.  He chewed up the dialog as if it was a stale wad of bubblegum and I found it mesmerizing.  His delivery was so hokey that I giggled with glee each time he appeared.  Sadly, no one else in the film ever achieves the same level of cheesiness.  Kreuk is lifeless throughout, but I'd still recommend the movie if for Chris Klein alone.  Here is a You Tube music video someone spliced together featuring Klein's best/worst lines. Chris Klein is on the Case

Sheen's not in it, you may be thinking of Hot Shots. Fitzpatrick stars in the main role. The entire movie is just riddled with camera mistakes, inexplicable action scenes, incomprehensive yet terribly simple story (They just go places and do shit that doesn't make any sense), enough to make it hilarious. Me and my old LAN buddies use to get together once every year, fairly close to christmas, and watch it for laughs.

@Asrahn:  
Yeah, I did find it myself to (also corrected myself) 
 
The one with Charlie Sheen is Navy Seals - which probably is a descent enough action flick, and hardly "so bad, it's good"-material :-)

Just look up Schwarzenegger on IMDB and you'll get a pretty good list of awesome-bad movies.

Buckaroo Banzai is pretty "awful-some" (new word!).  Though that was pretty much the point:
 

  
So you have Jeff Goldblum, John Lithgow, Christopher Lloyd, and RoboCop!

 His review-ish thing was pretty spot on about them.

He plays an evil alien named John Bigboote ("It's pronounced Big Boo Tay!")

The clips from The Wicker Man made me laugh out loud. That didn't look like a bad movie either. Damn.

You guys are all so wrong. It's Extreme Justice, starring Lou Diamond Phillips, Scott Glenn, and Yaphet Kotto. It's absolutely the worst piece of shit I have ever seen. But it is nothing short of hysterical, it's so goddamned, putrefyingly awful. Total Recall is corny, yes, but it's actually not a bad story (based on a Philip K. Dick short), it's just the corny Arnie treatment that makes it somewhat laughable. And yes, Wicker Man pretty much butchered the original. But Extreme Justice makes both of those movies look like award season darlings. My friends and I accidentally caught it on late night cable and laughed our asses off the whole time. If you've ever wanted to see what it looks like when even Lou Diamond Philips stoops to a new low, then this is your movie

The evil dead movies, especially Army of Darkness. 
 
And also I would recommend Hudson Hawk. Bruce Willis is in it, its fucking amazing. SO WEIRD.
