What is your favorite "schlocky" movie?
« on: May 17, 2011, 03:08:46 PM »
Inspired by orthonorm's post -- what is your favorite "schlock"y movie? Now, I'm not talking about the ones that everyone hates but you love -- but the movies that are oh so bad and yet you've burned out your VHS cassette watching it, the movie that you can quote from memory (although you wouldn't quote them to anyone outside your circle). You know it's bad, and you don't care!


Mine, hands down, is Clueless. Several years ago, I actually wrote an essay about why I was like Cher and posted it on my LiveJournal account. Before she met me, my roommate read the entry and decided that I was "AWESOME." I actually like dressing outlandishly like she did, and I have a valley girl accent (I'm from New Jersey). She did tell me that I am nothing like Cher, though. Perhaps that's a good thing. Her speeches were awful!

And yet, I love that movie to bits and pieces.

Troll 2. If you haven't seen it, well, it is the worst movie EVER. But hilariously entertaining nonetheless.

Clueless ain't schlock. It is a well written and acted film. An impeccable example of its genre. I like it a lot. I won't look at the RT aggregate score for it, but I bet it was certified fresh.

I have a list, which I think have some redeeming characteristics, but might fit into this category.

The Last Boy Scout. If you wanted to distill the genre of Bruce Willis (who I cannot bring myself to but love) to its most basic elements, this is it. Plus before I ever heard the word bucket list, there is a scene in the movie I always wanted to happen to me. One of the few things I hoped to have happen before I die. And it did, well close enough. A heck of a story.

Point Break. Again some redeeming elements, but . . . I dunno if anyone besides one buddy of mine has watched it as much I have.

Roadhouse. No irony. And no one has watched this film more times than I. That I promise.

Well perhaps you are looking at it from an adult lens. My 11 year old self vociferously disagrees with your statement!  ;) :D

There's a special place in my heart for a decent high-school-underdog-ugly-duckling-come-swan-team-captain flick. Nary a dry eye at the end. I get all verklempt and whatnot.

Nice! Swayze was truly in some great bad movies. For all those 80's retro clowns who hold up Dirty Dancing as some icon. Nope. Red Dawn and Road House much more indicative of the era.

Brilliant use of him in Donnie Darko. Absolute unschlock.

Redneck Zombies - They had a budget of $10,000. They made the movie on video tape. They had to beg, plead, and agree to become slave laborers to convince Troma (!) to release the film. And yet, it's one of the best horror films ever made. Naturally, a lot of people with questionable discernment can't understand the magnificence of the movie. One other thing: If you're going to buy this movie, get the older DVD version, not the newer 20th anniversary edition.

Good, just don't watch it with someone who actually liked the Spice Girls or they will be reciting the entire movie.


EDITED TO ADD: Is "Legend" with Tom Cruise considered a schlocky movie? I thought it was! I can't say I liked it but it was absolutely hilarious to watch.

Another schlocky movie I have in my DVD collection: Howard the Duck. Though admittedly, if a young Lea Thompson wasn't in it, I would have supressed that movie along with all the other terrible movies from the 80's which have forever scarred me.

"Schlock"... "Verklempt"...

What are we - Yiddish?

Anyway my favorite corny B-movie has always been 'Evil Dead II'...

The part where the main character's own hand becomes possessed and he has to cut it off... then the hand runs away on its fingers and turns around and flips him the bird?

Then he straps a chainsaw on the end of his arm where his hand used to be...


 
Hilarious!

Awesome! Again though, I think it might have been self-aware of its schlock. But a nice reference.

Sorry if ain't kosher, I am about as goyische kopf as you will find, but I spent too much time listening to grandparents yentering on and on. Only piece of white trash I promise who knew what the . . . . Lavern and Shirley were going about in the theme.

Again your selection too self-aware to count. And it is a good movie. Not schlock at all.

My all time favorite move was Monty Python and the Holy Grail.  Favorite TV show was the Black Adder series.

Baldric, "My Lord, I have a cunning plan."

Black Adder, "Baldric, that is the worst plan since Abe Lincoln said to his wife, I'm sick of sitting around the house, let's catch a show"

Well certainly Army of Darkness is nowhere near as good as ED2, so I guess it might fall into schlock territory. (I feel my elistist side emerging...  :angel: ) Also, as much as Raimi and company complained about the studio changing the film, I actually like the shorter cut better. The only thing about the extended edition that I liked was the line "you sound like a jerk," which my teenaged friends and I took some strange pleasure in saying to each other repeatedly. I suppose the most unforgiveable thing about the extended version is that they changed the line "good. bad. I'm the guy with the gun." though it also had other changes, and was even more plodding than the shorter version was. [/elitist]  Nonetheless, I shant speak ill of anything Bruce Campbell does, so... I still give it two thumbs up.

Another classic movie.

The Toxic Avenger.

Another movie that I own mostly because of one actress in it (Jennifer Babtist). I really am a pig.  8)

"Schlock"... "Verklempt"...

What are we - Yiddish?
Yiddish is the best language ever!

Well, to each their own I guess.

It always sounds gutteral and whiny to me.

Favorite use of a Yiddish word on TV?

George calls Elaine a 'shiksa' on Seinfeld.

Quote
Elaine: So now the *other* Lippman kissed me.

George: Well, sure. They're Jewish, and you're a shiksa.

Elaine: What?

George: It means a non-Jewish woman.

Elaine: I know what it means, but what does being a shiksa have to

do with it?

George: You've got 'shiksappeal'. Jewish men love the idea of

meeting a woman that's not like their mother.

"Shiksa is a loaded term, and usually offensive. It does not merely describe a certain kind of non-Jewish woman, but rather refers to the certain kind of woman no self-respecting Jew would want to be."



But Evil Dead 2 isn't schlock, it's a masterpiece :)

Yes, a veritable chef-d'œuvre de fromage!

I agree with orthonorm- intentionally campy movies don't count.

OK... Fine.

But how can you be sure that it was intentional?

Many will follow their shameful ways and will bring the way of truth into disrepute...

Therefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith, not giving heed to Jewish fables and commandments of men who turn from the truth.
