  These have been out a while, I just don't remember seeing a post about it on here.  Rob Schneider should have should have taken worst actor; he would in a "non-Wayans year".  I completely agree that "Basic Instinct 2" was deserving of worst picture.

Off-Topic Discussion / B Movie Action Madness!
« on: July 23, 2007, 07:42:40 PM »
  We all enjoy these guilty pleasures from time to time...What are your top 5 favorite low-budget action (or action sci-fi/horror) movies?  And they can be "so bad its good"   8)

1. Six-String Samurai

http://www.filmmakermagazine.com/summer1998/better_tomorrow.php

  This is by far the best post-apocalyptic, samurai/martial-arts western rock ‘n’ roll musical you have ever seen.  While this flick is certainly a B movie, the cinematography is intermittently genius (example...scene where the car door opens and gumballs come spilling out) and the music is top-notch.  It doesn't take itself seriously, and is brilliantly absurd.

2. Killer Klowns From Outer Space

http://home.swipnet.se/~w-28870/

  We've talked about this one before on here...Check it out sometime if you haven't already, as you can't help but enjoy (at least secretly) this classic.

3. Megaforce


  While the two movies above were made, I believe, by people who were trying to make something fun...this one was crafted by people who just don't care.  This is an example of a true "so awful its good" flick.  Its really unintentiionally hilarious.  The "soldiers" wear weird looking skin-tight jumpsuits along with ridiculous Rambo bandanas, and the special effects are atrocious even by early 80 standards.

4. The Toxic Avenger


  This flick has sentimental value, as I saw it and a few equally crapola sequels when I was a kid doing the "horror movie-athon sleepover" with some friends.  Its your typical tale...nerd gets picked on, gets horribly mutated by nuclear waste, and then takes revenge on those who wronged him.

5. Motel Hell


  Another sentimental B movie selection.  From what I recall, we have a few fans of this one on the board  8)

  Honorable mentions would go to the hilarious "Leprechaun" movies, the better than you think "Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins", "Zardoz", "Death Race 2000", "Chopping Mall", ""Flash Gordon", "Evil Dead" (which sort of rises above B movie-dom nowadays), "Beastmaster", "C.H.U.D", "Yor, Hunter From The Future", "The Ice Pirates", "Krull", "Surf Nazis Must Die!", and the horribly bad "Starcrash" starring The Hoff.  I really liked "The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension", though its hard for me to call that one a "true" B movie since the cast is so impressive.

Off-Topic Discussion / Advice on a trip to Perth
« on: November 27, 2006, 10:49:03 PM »
  I PMed one of our Aussies on the board for some info/ideas, but he hasn't been to Perth...so I figured that I would ask everyone.  I'm headed to Perth during Christmas week and am looking for things to do in and around there.  Right now I plan to stay in Freemantle for half of the trip and somewhere North of there (on the coast) for the other half.

  So far my plans are to check out Freemantle Prison (not in operation anymore, its historic), King's Park, the Pinnacle Desert, and Wave Rock.  What am I missing and whats the best way to get around?  Also, I plan on renting a 4X4 for some off-road...has anyone gone offroading in Western Australia?

  Thanks  O0

General Discussion / Bridges of Madison County...A Question
« on: September 11, 2006, 07:25:33 PM »
  I've noticed that a number of women on the board seem to approve of Francesca's affair with Robert, or maybe it just comes across that way.  This question has been discussed before a while back, but I think it should be renewed since there was no official poll last time and we have quite a few new members.  The question isn't about the plot or quality of the movie, just your opinion of Francesca's infidelity.

  This poll is for both men and women by the way  O0  At the end (whenever that is), I will tally up the Yes/No breakdown.

Off-Topic Discussion / Your favorite funny scenes from movies...
« on: July 24, 2005, 08:34:28 AM »
  What are your favorite parts from movies that have you dying laughing every time you see it?  The movie doesn't have to be great, just a scene that makes you laugh like crazy.


1.  "Caddyshack"...This is a great dialogue by Bill Murray as Carl Spackler: So I jump ship in Hong Kong and make my way over to Tibet, and I get on as a looper at a course over in the Himalayas. A looper, you know, a caddy, a looper, a jock. So, I tell them I'm a pro jock, and who do you think they give me? The Dalai Lama, himself. Twelfth son of the Lama. The flowing robes, the grace, bald... striking. So, I'm on the first tee with him. I give him the driver. He hauls off and whacks one -- big hitter, the Lama -- long, into a ten-thousand foot crevice, right at the base of this glacier. And do you know what the Lama says? Gunga galunga...gunga -- gunga galunga. So we finish the eighteenth and he's gonna stiff me. And I say, "Hey, Lama, hey, how about a little something, you know, for the effort, you know." And he says, "Oh, uh, there won't be any money, but when you die, on your deathbed, you will receive total consiousness." So I got that goin' for me, which is nice.


2.  "Airplane!"...Its hard to pick a favorite from this one, as there are several scenes that have me dying laughing.  If forced to choose, I would say the scene where Lloyd Bridges says out of nowhere "Looks like I picked the wrong week to stop sniffing glue!"

3.  "Dumb and Dumber"...The Sea Bass (former NHLer Cam Neely) subplot.  When that random guy yells "Kick his ass Sea Bass!" I lose it.


4.  "Happy Gilmore"...I love it when Barker and Sandler start fighting.  I realize its pretty easy humor, but I can't stop laughing watching this.

5.  "National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation"...This dialogue between Chevy Chase's character and the snobby neighbor and his wife (Julia Louis-Dreyfuss) cracks me up:
Todd: “Where do you think you're gonna put a tree that big?”
Clark: “Bend over and I'll show you.”
Todd: “You've got a lot of nerve, talking to me like that, Griswold!”
Clark: “I wasn't talking to you!”


6.  "Office Space"...The scene where they beat the [email protected]#t out of the fax machine/printer; good stuff.

7.  "Strange Brew"...The entire segment where Moranis and Thomas's characters are in the courtroom.


8.  "Super Troopers"...The scene where the crazed redneck is supposedly having sex with a bear is gold.


9.  "The Naked Gun"...Lots of good stuff in the "Naked Gun" movies, the queen scene was pretty funny.

10.  "Clerks"...The video store clerk lists out the loud the most indiscreetly named porno titles in history, with a kid watching.

  Honorable mentions...or little yucks that I picked up on and consider underrated.
  There is a painting in "The Royal Tenenbaums" that is the funniest thing I've ever seen.  Its a bunch of guys on ATVs wearing tribal masks.  I don't even remember whats going on in the foreground, I just love that awful painting.
  Another good scene is when the cheesy 80s guy opens the doors to his Delorean in "The Wedding Singer" and the Miami Vice theme comes booming out.


I know I'm forgetting a few gems for sure and most off of the top of my head are relatively (after 1980ish) recent movies...What are some of your favorites scenes?  Again it doesn't have to be a great movie, just a scene that cracks you up.

 >:(   >:(   >:(

  This new angry face is so over-the-top angry that it makes me laugh.  I don't think it can be used to convey anger  :D
