The title of this thread pretty much speaks for itself. What is a terrible game or movie that you love and might even have spent money on?

Earlier today, my dad was looking around at a Big Lots that opened up here recently, and as you know they get a lot of closures on things that didn't sell, and on the $3 shelf, he found a legitimately new, sealed copy of Leonard Part 6. Now, I didn't know that this was ever released on DVD, and I've never actually seen it. We both love to make fun of terrible movies, but we're both afraid to watch it.

I bought that game, got 1 minute into it, got really badly stuck and returned it.

Eventhough it's video game related? Hmm.
Crash Bash is one of my favourite PS1 games. I know there are others, but I really can't think of them at the moment.

I recall liking Clayfighter 63 1/3. I don't know anyone else who does.

Its about Movies and Games, better suited to OT than GD.

I really liked Crash Bash, too. I also have fond memories of playing an updated version of "Breakout." Neither of which I'd say were terrible, they just weren't received well.

I actually kind of liked that fireworks PS2 launch title, Fantavision...at least at the time.

For some reason, Crash Bandicoot: The Wrath of Cortex has a fairly negative view on it. I think it is the greatest Crash game ever and also the last one before the 'decline'.

How the hell do you get stuck in a game one minute in...?

I understand what he means but obviously overexaggerating. I got stuck fairly early in it too. About 45 minutes I think.

I love Auto Modellista.

#19 Posted by madsnake (21 posts) -

I like the first two Robocop movies, i mean the first was good but the second is pretty bad, still i always watch them when they pass on TV

About games, well i like Dragon Ball Z Budokai Tenkaichi 3 and WWE SvR 2008, and trust me that is a bad game.

Monty Python and the Holy Grail.

#22 Posted by Tordah (2487 posts) -

Attack Of The Killer Tomatoes. Well, "love" is not the word I would use but I find it very amusing. Some Troma movies are pretty funny too like Toxic Avenger and Poultrygeist: Night Of The Chicken Dead.

I can't think of any really bad games that I enjoy more than I should.

That's a trick question. No-one can resist the Hoff.
See in my mind, the most perfect movie of all time would be David Hasselhoff, William Shatner and Bruce Campbell all facing off against Hitler (naturally played by John Cusack)
That would be a movie so great, I'd have to kill myself after seeing it just so that I don't have to suffer anything sub-par to that ever again.

Red Dawn

#27 Posted by TekZero (2691 posts) -

Shadowrun for the 360.  I just can't get enough of it and it wasn't too well received by just about everyone.

Now it's a $5-$10 game and it's a steal.

The Street Fighter movie. Oh yeah.
Maybe it's a stretch to say I love it, but it's bad in the baddest of ways. I do love that speech by Van Damme, though. That whole scene is some of the greatest five minutes in movie history.

#32 Posted by TheGTAvaccine (2884 posts) -

The Super Mario Bros. movie, and Kane and Lynch.

Cube 2: Hypercube . Terrible movie, but I love it.

Raul Julia looked like he was having so much fun in that movie that it's infectious.  "For you, the day I came to your village and killed your parents was the pivotal point in your life.  For me... it was Tuesday."  Classic.

My personal favorites - John Carpenter's They Live, Vampires, and Escape from LA/New York (though New York truthfully wasn't a bad movie).  JCVD's The Quest - I actually really enjoy that movie, and not just in a post-modern so-ridiculous-it's-awesome sort of way.  I genuinely love it.  Hulk Hogan's Santa With Muscles, Mr. Nanny, and Suburban Commando are all enjoyable awful.  Along with the usual Bruce Campbell faves, I'm a huge fan of Alien Apocalypse.  What else, what else?  The From Dusk Till Dawn movies, definitely.

I have a deep fondness for what I call the Sci-Fi specials, the awful B-movies and spin-offs that Sci-Fi air all the time, especially their horror ones.  Movies like Dracula 3000, Pterodactyl, all of their post-apocalyptica, Yeti, and Sasquatch in particular.  If you catch any of those, Dracula 3000 is without a doubt one of the most spectacularly bad movies of all time.

Video-game wise: Suikoden IV gets a lot of hate, but I really enjoyed it.  I'm adoring the hell out of Last Remnant.

I second that. Plus that bit at the end where Van Damme kicks Julia and they replay it from, like, 4 different angles. That was the last fucking epic action movie of that era.
Even if in the end it was a steaming pile of dogshit.

As far as movies:  Riddick and Mortal Kombat (was this considered good or bad?)
games: too many

#37 Posted by HandsomeDead (11863 posts) -

If you like a terrible movie/game/whatever, doesn't that make it stop being horrible as it's actually being entertaining.

And how do you get stuck in the matrix?  It's a rather straight forward game

Pretty good I must say.

As far as movies go, anything with Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Sylvester Stallone,  or  Steven Seagal.

I thought the same thing a while back and came to the conclusion that just because you enjoy something doesn't make it a good example of [insert medium of art here].
So I tend to mean films that I know are made badly but still have an appeal to me.
For instance, Army of Darkness is not as good a movie as Evil Dead II, but it has more of an aesthetic appeal to me (mostly due to the absurd approach to the character of Ash becoming more and more of a charismatic hero archetype/parody)

I'm with you there - surprised anyone else had the guts to say it. I actually like that movie quite a bit. Of course, I first saw it when I was a lot younger, so my opinion has been skewed ever since. Now, if I saw it for the first time today my opinion would probably be different.

Oh, I also liked the Doom movie, but that's mostly because I've always been in love with the Rock and Karl Urban, although even if those two weren't in it, I still probably would've liked it.

Um...I just saw Punisher War Zone...and I shouldn't like it.

However, I saw a guy doing a backflip off a rooftop and he was explodered by a rocket.

So it's full of crazy win.
