I had a friend in LA who loved to watch B, C and Z movies. I guess the old saying is true: some flicks are so bad, they're good.

My picks are the Toxic Avenger series and a bunch of unnamed erotic movies shown by Cinemax and Showtime.

Recently I watched "The Incredibles" with my sister and 17 year old neice. We all fell asleep. Very disappointing flick.

Heresy.

Anyway, Plan 9 From Outer Space is the pinnacle of the so-bad-it's-good genre.

Did you know that in the porn channel, the sex is fake?

It becomes funny to watch. Bumping and grinding fakeness. HAHA.

Good storylines though.

When the storyline in a porn flick is better than the sex, it is time to change channels or give up sex.

"The Whole Ten Yards" was abslutely terrible. It's like they just made a sequel for the sake of making a sequel. I used to really like the first one but the stank of the sequel has tainted it for me.

When I'm having a bad day, I find hiding out in a dark room with popcorn helps- so I see a lot of crap movies. The triple X sequel is funny because it's so bad.

I agree about the whole ten yards.....it was bad. Also Taxi is bad. And Ocean's 12.

I got dragged to The Amityville Horror a few weeks ago. I haven't cried at a movie for ages. In fact I've never cried tears of sullenness in a movie before. Shocker.

Are you talking about Korean porn? Yeah, it's all fake. But when the gummint says it's okay to see *beep* and asses, but not pee pees and yoo hoos, what else can they do?

A former student of mine does Korean porn. Kinda an open secret at my school.

Any foreign flick Hollywood re-makes has been truly awful:

Taxi
Point of No Return (La Femme Nikita)
The Grudge (Juon)
Ring
Shall We Dance?

I'm so not anticipating the upcoming re-makes of Ring 2 (and most likely, Ring 0, the best of the 3), Old Boy, 엽기적인 그녀, My Wife is a Gangster, or 시월애.

Brought my collection to Korea so's I kin watch anytime I wants to. Horrible movies. Some of the best episodes:

Moon Zero Two (gunfights, yes with sixshooters, between astronauts in the vacuum of the moon)
Time of the Apes (really bad, I mean REALLY bad, Japanese version of Planet of the Apes)
Secret Agent Super Dragon (another contribution from our Japanese friends)

and although MST3K only did one movie starring this particular Mexican superstar, I've collected a few more from other sources over the years: El Santo the pro-wrestler (circa 1950s). MST3K did "Samson the Silver Maskman vs. the Vampire Women", but "Santo vs. the Invasion from Mars" deserves honourable mention, and well, pretty much any of the other 50 or so movies El Santo made.
