I have decided to have a movie marathon soon, but there exists one "small problem". You see, I have no idea what to watch! And this is where you guys come in. I would like it if you could recommend some awesome movie. I will pay you handsomely :)! All that i ask is that it follows these here guidelines:

  • It is preferably from 2000-2011, or late 20th century
  • It is not longer than two and a half hours

I will do a short overview of the marathon when I'm done, doing a short review for every movie I watch.

Oh and almost forgot to pay you handsomely!

  • Ridiculously funnily bad, which makes it good super acceptable

@MrJorOwe:Thanks :)! I can't see how i hadn't thunk (?) of that before :/!

@Video_Game_King: Wow haven't been to that site in over two years! Thanks for the help! Cheers!

  1. Harry Potter
  2. Star Wars

@Dagbiker:I actually had the idea to watch both of those franchises, but then I wouldn't have the time for other movies

The highest up ones you haven't seen in your year range. I've seen about half of them now, seriously recommend just blasting through the list. http://www.imdb.com/chart/top

#8 Posted by Papa_XIV (149 posts) -

@theguy:Thanks, that should help :). I said 2000-2011, because they're the easiest the find. I will watch East of Eden with James Dean which was made in 1955, so it isn't like I don't like those movies or something. Thanks again!

View Askewniverse Marathon.

That is to say

  • Clerks
  • Mallrats
  • Chasing Amy
  • Dogma
  • Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back
  • Clerks II

You know it makes sense.

@SMTDante89:I watched that one two years ago and couldn't remember what its name was the other day! Thanks a bunch!

@Tylea002: Thanks, I'll just see what these movies are about and see which ones i want to see!

Lord of the rings, maybe the expanded versions if you own them and have the time.

#15 Posted by Papa_XIV (149 posts) -

@kashif1:Don't have the time. I wanted, and still want to, watch it, but i have it no time

points 3 and 4 are really limiting the scope of point 5

@Papa_XIV: If you're picking and chosing, you want Clerks and Dogma. Or Chasing Amy. But as a package, they have everything you ask for. All short, all funny - either good or so bad it's good. Never boring.

So if you have the time, do the full thing, ESPECIALLY if you've never seen them before, don't go looking them up and spoiling them, they're all in the same universe.

You're right. Check up now :)

@Tylea002: Well, if they are up to two and a half hours I will try and see them all. Thanks!

Clerks, Chasing Amy and Dogma are legit great films, in fact I would even call Chasing Amy one of my favourite movies ever. Jay and Silent Bob as well as Clerks 2 and Mallrats are harder to swallow but still a lot of fun if you're in the right mindset.

@BraveToaster:This? This was a must from before I made this thread, together with Ko Pjeva Zlo Ne Misli (Don't try to understand it, it's Croatian :P), thanks!

Excuse me for asking, but why are you doing a movie ''marathon'' if you say you don't have time. Isn't that the whole point of a marathon? Watching long movies or series back to back?

From what I understand of your post, you're not really doing a marathon, you're just watching a movie a day. But I guess we might all have different definitions of the word. Just asking.

#23 Posted by corruptsaves (220 posts) -

I found Cold Fish was pretty funny, not a family film though, oh yeah and Orgazmo.

#24 Posted by N7 (3658 posts) -

If you like Kevin James, watch Red State. That movie starts out like the usual gruff, but holy shit does it take a totally new direction a couple of times. It's like some sort of crazy experiment or something because it was nuts. It's like if you started watching Star Trek, crossed over to My Wife And Kids and then found yourself stuck in The Hurt Locker. This movie will take you for a ride.
 
Or Fast Five, cuz is got cars.

#25 Posted by rockyhorrorgerri (374 posts) -

Well if you want to watch a GOOD movie. Go pick up a copy of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Jussayin!

#27 Edited by Papa_XIV (149 posts) -

@Strife777:No, I have about ten to fifteen hours back to back to watch the movies.

@N7: I will try to, although it sounds like I will want to throw up very soon :P

:So i should watch them in that order?

@Rudeboy217: That's...Amazing! Is it in English though?

@buzz_killington: I would, if Croatian RTL didn't show it like a billion times already

#28 Posted by buzz_killington (3532 posts) -

Beach Movie. The worst/greatest thing I have ever seen. Seek it out.

Birdemic: Shock and Terror
#30 Posted by DelroyLindo (387 posts) -

@Papa_XIV: In which case I recommend Camp Blood. I have seen that shoddy pile of arse gravy so many times. It is spectacular. Steer clear of the sequel though, that one is just bad bad.

#31 Edited by efman (212 posts) -

Jason X man, Jason X all the WAY! It's essential-watching in the pantheon of ridiculousness. Freddy vs Jason is also a hoot, but nothing compares to Jason X. Both qualify to your criteria of "ridiculously funnily bad." In fact, I'd go so far as to say that they're so awful, they end up being amazing, Jason X more so than FvJ. Ohhhhh, Jason X -- you have to see it if you already haven't. And, yes, do give us your impressions of it afterward.

#32 Posted by Papa_XIV (149 posts) -

@uniform: That looks...Khm....Splendid?

@DelroyLindo: OK, thanks ;)!

#33 Posted by spiceninja (3065 posts) -

@N7: It's hilarious because Kevin Smith says he's mistaken for Kevin James all the time. Apparently all fat guys look the same to the normies.

@efman: Of course I will, thanks ;)!

@Papa_XIV: Misread the OP and thought you only wanted So Bad It's Great Movies. Still watch Bones, but also watch FUBAR II: Balls to the Wall.

Ridiculous and funny... but not a bad movie? that's a short list... how about scott piligrim vs the world?

I watched a season of Top Gear, Clerks, and Office Space a couple of weekends ago. Was Good Times.

Kind of found the whole critique of "Red States" idiotic, but if you watch it like some sort of drama/horror/thriller instead of a political statement it's pretty good.

The only way you should see this movie is in a theater with people who know all the bullshit lines, just watching it on a dvd alone is unacceptable.

I completely agree.

Melancholia, Everything Must Go and Oldboy if you want a "I don't want to be happy" marathon.

Robocop

If you've already seen it before then watch it again and try to pick out all the little Easter egg details. For example the idea that Dick Jones and Clarence Boddicker share euphemisms in both a criminal environment and a corporate environment.

"Good business is where you find it"

If you haven't seen it yet then what are you waiting for? Greatest Sci-Fi/Action/Social Commentary movie ever made.
