Cheesy movies

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I just wondered what movies you think were really cheesy? Sometimes such a great deal is made about how big they are going to be when they come out, then they suck big time As you know DareDevil came out some 2 or so years ago, and atm it is on free to air tv (currently an ad break) and it is SOOOOOO corny, it is worse than the election!!!

What do you guys cringe at?

I thought Hostel was the worst movie--not scary, not anything compared to Saw. But I thought RV was pretty cheesy.

Well this little debate can be solved easily enough. Just watch some Mystery Science Theater 3000. It's a TV show where a few guys are watching a cheesy movie and they mock it and put in their own lines at the most appropriate times. It's hilarious.

Monster house, I didnt like it, it was creepy strange and in my opinion is not a good movie for children.

Ant bully is a much better childrens movie, I'm not a kid but I like kids movies better.

Full agreement on Hitchhiker's Guide -- after waiting so many years to see it filmed, I was really disappointed.

More recently... Premonition really disappointed me, too. Dull and draggy and predictable, and I didn't care a hoot about any of the characters. Well, maybe the husband... but he was dead!

One of the worst ever -- Johnny Mnemonic! AUGH! I sat there in open-mouthed horror at how just plain stupid the whole movie was.

I like cheesy horror movies that my friends and I can tear to pieces. You know, the ones with stock characters, physics-defying blood spatter patters and wet heroines (why is it always raining???? LMAO). You could drive a van through the holes in the plot, they are so large and obvious. It's especially entertaining when someone famous is in the film.

Crossing Jordan/Law&Order fans, I urge you to rent Komodo
This is probably my all-time favourite cheesy horror pick. The lovely Jill Hennessy will dazzle audiences by fending of giant komodo dragons using such weapons as a broom stick, pithy lines and very flawed ideas about how a pyschiatrist (no last name....we referred to her as pyschiatrist barbie) should treat her young, traumatized patient. Two thumbs up!

Medium fans will enjoy Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dreamwarriors, where Patricia Arquette joins the ranks of the many celebrities who have faced off with Freddy Kruger (remember a young Johnny Depp in the original??), this time from a psych ward. She is joined by Lawrence Fishburn as the kindly orderly. If you can possibly find it, do get the version of the film that comes with the music video by Dokken. It's AWESOME. So much 80s style and sound with disjointed clips from the film; how could it be anything but entertaining?!?


Carol and everyone else who has mentioned Hitch Hiker's Guide......I found the film to be cute and reasonably amusing for what it was. But, I went in realizing there was absolutely no way that the humour of the book could be properly captured in film. It's such a great series of novels, but there are just too many small referrences and exccentricities to have it translate well to film. However, I did not object to spending a few hours gazing at Mos Def

This is an older movie but I just saw it last night for the first time: Spaceballs! Sorry if anyone likes it but I thought it was the dumbest movie I have ever seen!

This is how I feel about the Pirates of the Carribean movies

I acutally just seen Music & Lyrics
and I thought that was kind of cheesy, but to my surprise, my boyfriend really liked it. So I was like Oh my gosh, my man, like a chic movie, so then I liked it more after he explained about how "cuteish" the story line was.

Oh, watch it now, them's fightin' words! I LOVE Music & Lyrics! Yes, okay, it's a light little bit of fluff, not gonna change the world or anything... and I normally HATE chick movies... but I just enjoyed it all to pieces. Can't stop singing "Just a meaningLESS kiss / It wasn't supposed to end up like this..." So perfectly '80s!

On the other hand, Spaceballs, yes ma'am, I completely agree! But I've been told by people I respect that it was actually a brilliant satire... and certainly I expect brilliance from Mel Brooks... so maybe it's our fault we don't get it!

And speaking of brilliant satire -- does anybody besides me appreciate Ishtar? Pure silly genius, most people don't get it -- but I LOVE IT!
