A good bad movie is an incredible treat. Some are bad enough to become cult classics, and I know I'm not the only one who enjoys them.
I give them a beer rating... how many beers does it take to have fun watching the movie. You'd probably like to know before switching the movie on, right?
Here's my list of NO BEER NECESSARY movies, counting down to the best of the bad.
|Beer is optional|
2010, SyFy Channel. Starring Paul Logan, Tiffany, and Barry Williams. A mutant strain of giant ferocious piranha escape from the Amazon and eat their way toward Florida.
Lots of people get munched. It's uber fun. Those giant piranha do some very unexpected and surprising things, like explode. I love to be surprised. And in a cheesy movie, the creators might as well go all the way.
2013, SyFy Channel. Starring Ian Ziering and Tara Reid. A whole lot of awesome sauce. This movie understood what it was and delivered campy on steroids. Lots of wonderful and fun surprises. Chainsaws. Things flooded then not flooded. People getting munched at every turn and a tornado of sharks. Fun, fun, fun.
Can't wait for #2.
GAMERA VS ZIGRA
196? The giant turtle with flames coming out of his butt battles a giant fish that can't move. This was my all-time favorite fun bad movie until I stumbled across the next...
This movie still makes me giggle. Gamera has a catchy theme song too. I'll definitely be watching more Gamera in the future.
Made in the 1970's after Star Wars... well, you won't believe it was. A baby David Hasselhoff is in it and Christopher Plummer. One reviewer said: Star Crash is in a category by itself.
With praise like that, I couldn't resist, and I have to say I was not disappointed. It definitely is in a class by itself. Just when you think you're done laughing and being surprised, this movie keeps delivering until the end.
I can't imagine any good-bad movie topping this one, but film makers I dare you to try. Because I want more.
