Films That Suck and Don't



I have seen many shitty movies lately. At least four of the last six films I saw pretty much sucked ass. But one of them was not the 1994 Corman-produced The Fantastic Four. That one I actually kind of liked. I mean, it's cheap and cheesy, but it's also cute and charming, and there's not much wrong with it plotwise. And, you know, it had a budget of $1,500,000, while the 2005 version with Jessica Alba had a budget of some $100,000,000. But was the latter 66 times better? No. In several ways it was worse. Apparently I'm not alone in thinking this. Teh Internet: Good for finding minority opinions.

Anyroad, how many films considered the worst ever have you seen? I've seen way too many.

"Oh, look at me, I think this little cheap film is better than what you main stream zombies like because I appreciate it on a finer level than you. It's just cheesy fun!"

This is the movie where they show Alicia Masters' POV right?

That movie was diarrhea. But I do admit the Thing looked better in the Corman version.

"Oh, I'm Mainsteam Matthew. I feel attacked when someone doesn't hate the same shit I hate."

Your comment doesn't really make sense because the mainstream opinion is clearly that the 2005 film ("what you main stream zombies like") was pretty shitty as well. It's 26% fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

I don't like cheese, I like aspects of the FF film DESPITE its obvious cheesiness. I was pleasantly surprised that it wasn't entirely as awful as it seemed. I do believe that the same basic plot with some of the same actors could well have resulted in something much better than the 2005 film. So there.

My comment makes perfect sense! Even when it doesn't!
