My list of guilty pleasures (Movies I like but which I can never admit to liking because no one who normally likes movies will like them)

We all know movies that are condemned to be bad, be it for their ludicrous imagery, nonsensical storyline, quirky acting or whatever else there exists to go wrong.

Nevertheless, even though we all hear about these kind of movies and how awful they aparently are, we sometimes feel compeled to just "take a peek", and before you know it you sat through the whole thing and start saying to yourself, "Hey that wasn't too bad, actually, that was pretty good." Some people will argument that people who watch these kind of movies drift into a shell-shock kind of trance that lets them endure anything no matter how bad, but that's another story.

Now, I know quite a few people will go on to calling me crazy, or insane, or whatever other words there are for that particular condition, here is a list of movies that are deemed to be failures, but that I nevertheless enjoyed and found highly entertaining. "Why?" you will ask. I don't know. Maybe because I am CRAZY. Seriously people, WHY SO SERIOUS???

Southland Tales (2006)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.5/10 X  
During a three day heat wave just before a huge 4th of July celebration, an action star stricken with amnesia meets up with a porn star who is developing her own reality TV project, and a policeman who holds the key to a vast conspiracy. (145 mins.)
Director: Richard Kelly
“ A whole lot of well-known (and quasi-well-known) actors in this one, ludicrous imagery and a plotline a person of firm mind can hardly follow properly.
Nevertheless, I found it strangely intriguing and highly entertaining having all the weirdness and obscure imagery I desire in a movie that I knew was going to be weird, and of course it makes you think (be it about quantum mechanics or about how on earth someone could come up with such a movie). ” - fmaier
 
2.
Jonah Hex (2010)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.7/10 X  
The U.S. military makes a scarred bounty hunter with warrants on his own head an offer he cannot refuse: in exchange for his freedom, he must stop a terrorist who is ready to unleash Hell on Earth. (81 mins.)
Director: Jimmy Hayward
“ I like Josh Brolin, John Malkovich and Michael Fassbender, that's about it.
Didn't know too much about the comic book, heard that it got a lot of negative feedback from all sides, nevertheless gave it a chance, and (you're gonna say I'm crazy now) actually enjoyed it. ” - fmaier
 
3.
BloodRayne: The Third Reich (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.0/10 X  
Rayne fights against the Nazis in Europe during World War II, encountering Ekart Brand, a Nazi leader... (79 mins.)
Director: Uwe Boll
“ Two words; "NAZI VAMPIRES" ” - fmaier
 
4.
Mutant Chronicles (2008)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.2/10 X  
28th century soldier Mitch Hunter leads a fight against an army of underworld Mutants. (111 mins.)
Director: Simon Hunter
“ Curiosity made me go for this one, and of course the actors, especially John Malkovich, Ron Perlman, Thomas Jane, and how many other known names were involved in this CGI(conic) Steampunk WWII (or maybe WWI) mashup. ” - fmaier
 
5.
Season of the Witch (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
14th-century knights transport a suspected witch to a monastery, where monks deduce her powers could be the source of the Black Plague. (95 mins.)
Director: Dominic Sena
“ It had Ron Perlman in it, and it was about witches, monks, templars and the plague. Even though I knew from the trailers it would be one of those "It stinks and there's absolutely nothing good about it" movies, I had to watch and had to like it.
Watch it if you want to see a barely recognizable Christopher Lee dying of the plague and if you want to see that funny kid from the show Misfits in his "first" movie role, to be honest he's actually pretty lovable, unlike Nick Cage. ” - fmaier
 
6.
Caligula (1979)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.2/10 X  
Details the graphic and shocking, yet undeniably tragic story of Rome's most infamous Caesar, Gaius Germanicus Caligula. (156 mins.)
Director: Tinto Brass
“ Malcolm MacDowell's perfomance as well as many of the supporting actors, notably, Peter O'toole, Helen Mirren and Lisa Ann Savoy made it watchable and worthwhile to me.
Basically one of these movies you either love or hate, one of these misunderstood masterpieces or a mere runner-up among high-class trash-fests, one you endure or dare not to bare. ” - fmaier
 
7.
The Crow: City of Angels (1996)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.5/10 X  
The spirit of the Crow resurrects another man seeking revenge for the murder of his son. (84 mins.)
Director: Tim Pope
“ I know the original is a timeless cult classic and I know Vincent Perez is no Brandon Lee, but, hell, despite all its flaws and recycled story, it did leave me glued to the seat till the very end.
Just let me fetch my leather mantle and put on my white and black make-up to get me in the mood. ” - fmaier
 
8.
The Crow: Wicked Prayer (2005)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.0/10 X  
On his way to becoming an immortal demon, gangleader Luc Crash (Boreanaz) orchestrates the murder of Jimmy Cuervo (Furlong) and his girlfriend, Lily (Chriqui). (99 mins.)
Director: Lance Mungia
“ If any movie makes you want to do this; http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2NaXZv-B4JE, after watching it, it's got to be this one.
The charm of a badly put together TV-production and the desperate desire to adapt a storyline comparable to its predecessors. The only thing that keeps it together for me is the actors, notably Edward Furlong and David Boreanaz, trying to act their way through this one. ” - fmaier
 
9.
The Crow: Salvation (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.0/10 X  
Alex Corvis returns to the world of the living to solve the murder of a young woman that he was wrongly accused of. (102 mins.)
Director: Bharat Nalluri
“ Now, many will say this one sucks, and I'll have to agree, where's the random goofiness of the second one, and where's the part where Kirsten "I'm gonna be Spiderman's babe, or not" dies. Well, not here, at least it's got some weird imagery and some good unexplainable plotline stuff, I don't know if I like the Crow letting his face fall off to reveal his custom make up, but at least he's pretty much different from his predecessors, he's cocky, he's rash, uncontrolled and carries lotsa anger around with him, and of course Fred Ward as the expected unexpected lead bad guy, another iconic moments in cheap movie history and I adored it. ” - fmaier
 
10.
Highlander II: The Quickening (1991)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.0/10 X  
In the future, Highlander Connor MacLeod must prevent the destruction of Earth under an anti-ozone shield. (91 mins.)
Director: Russell Mulcahy
“ I used to love this piece as a kid, following the first with its relentless sword fighting and fantasy storyline, adding more than just a bit of science fiction, a simpler plot and just enough randomness to make it an unforgettable piece of trash that one just can't help but love? ” - fmaier
 
11.
Judge Dredd (1995)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
In a dystopian future, Joseph Dredd, the most famous Judge (a police officer with instant field judiciary powers), is convicted for a crime he did not commit and must face his murderous counterpart. (96 mins.)
Director: Danny Cannon
“ Not as gritty as the comics and with a lot more campy contents than expected, not to forget the over-exaggerated performances by Sylvester Stallone and Armand Assante, and above all a lot funnier, if partially unintentional, than it probably should have been.
A fun ride if you give it a try. I do love to come back to this one when I can't think of anything else to watch, and that not only because J.D. and Turk Love it.
In its aftermath this movie did coin one of the phrases most commonly used by critics nowadays, "I AM THE LAW!!!" ” - fmaier
 
12.
Leatherface: Texas Chainsaw Massacre III (1990)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.1/10 X  
A California couple and a survivalist encounter Leatherface and his family. (85 mins.)
Director: Jeff Burr
“ This movie was just fun, and even though it has barely anything to do with the first and second, both timeless classics (good and bad ones) if you ask me, it does have it's charms as well as a nice quirky cast, many many horror and slasher movie moments, as well as just enough suspense to have you glued to the seat for at least a bit more than half the time.
In the end you may come to see that it's not as bad as it's made out to be. ” - fmaier
 
13.
The Last Sentinel (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.7/10 X  
No emotion. No fear. No pain. They were the perfect soldiers to protect civilization-until the drone police became the perfect enemy... (93 mins.)
Director: Jesse Johnson
“ I remember watching this because I felt like it, because it seemed like a smart thing to do, because it sounded good, because if I wouldn't have sat throught this post-apocalyptic, near futuristic, seemingly low budget trash fest I would have missed a good bad movie. ” - fmaier
 
14.
Congo (1995)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.0/10 X  
When an expedition to the African Congo ends in disaster, a new team is assembled to find out what went wrong. (109 mins.)
Director: Frank Marshall
“ Apparently this movie is so bad, they used it as a measurement to review bad movies. Well, considering that there actually is much worse out there, I'd have to admit that I really liked it. And even though my whole family agrees with the fact that the special effects, how little were utilized, were beyond bad, the apes were downright unbelievable and the plot was an easy to follow jungle expedition drenched in quirky humour and predictable turnouts, spiced with just a little bit of gore, we still like to gather around the television on a Saturday night to watch it, heaven knows why. ” - fmaier
 
15.
The Condemned (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.1/10 X  
Jack Conrad is awaiting the death penalty in a corrupt Central American prison. He is "purchased" by a wealthy television producer and taken to a desolate island where he must fight to the death against nine other condemned killers from all corners of the world, with freedom going to the sole survivor. (113 mins.)
Director: Scott Wiper
“ Lotsa needless sweat, blood and testosterone mixed with a bit of familiar storyline driven through the meat grinder and we get this. The actors do what they can and the story wobbles and jitters about, yet it remains highly entertaining and action-packed. The competition being broadcast over the internet actually gave it a pretty nice twist. The only thing that bugged me a little bit is that the German contestant didn't last that long, but well nobody's perfect. ” - fmaier
 
16.
Predator 2 (1990)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
Amidst a territorial gang war in 1997, a sophisticated alien hunter stalks the citizens of Los Angeles and the only man between him and his prey is veteran L.A.P.D. officer, Lieutenant Mike Harrigan. (108 mins.)
Director: Stephen Hopkins
“ I absolutely love this movie, so much I actually have it twice. Don't get me wrong the first one was brilliant, but I can't watch it all the time. This one I can watch all the time. The Predator looks more badass, there's a city full of people he can use as a hunting ground, not just a lonely rainforest with a lost army unit, and it takes place during a ferocious gang war, well in the beginning it does. But still I cannot tell people I like this movie without them staring at me confused and in disbelief. So I have no other choice but to put it here, where all the lost and forgotten legends lie. ” - fmaier
 
17.
Demolition Man (1993)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.6/10 X  
A police officer is brought out of suspended animation in prison to pursue an old ultra-violent nemesis who is loose in a non-violent future society. (115 mins.)
Director: Marco Brambilla
“ Why I like this movie? I wish I knew. ” - fmaier
 
18.
Jason X (2001)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.4/10 X  
Jason Voorhees returns with a new look, a new machete, and his same murderous attitude as he is awakened on a spaceship in the 25th century. (91 mins.)
Director: Jim Isaac
“ Basically a deformed juggernaut of ideas that normally do not mix and should not be mixed at any cost unless for the purpose of creating mass brain damage. Well, I do have to say, brain damage can be fun sometimes. ” - fmaier
 
19.
RoboCop 2 (1990)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.7/10 X  
Cyborg law enforcer RoboCop protects the citizens of Detroit by taking on a powerful drug syndicate, while a renegade OCP executive tries to create a new, superior RoboCop using a crime lord as its subject. (117 mins.)
Director: Irvin Kershner
“ I saw this movie when I was a child, I thought it was dark and pretty scary. When I re-encountered this movie I though I'd rekindle my previous connection to it. Let's say that after rewatching it I thought it wasn't as dark and as gritty as I had it in mind. Still, I like it, it may not be as great as its predecessor and it may not have the same depth, at least its action-packed, quirky fun, even though you may feel like having been kicked in the nuts by a pneumatic robot limb afterwards. ” - fmaier
 
20.
RoboCop: Prime Directives (2000 Mini-Series)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.7/10 X  
Thirteen years after the original Robocop, Delta City, considered to be "The Safest Place On Earth!"... (375 mins.)
Director: Julian Grant
“ During its release the movie series 'Robocop: Prime Directives' was hailed a return to form for the ever so stagnating Robocop franchise, to a degree, it had the familiar setting, albeit 10 (or was it 20) years later, Delta City is prospering, satirical and cynical news reports are commonly viewed on tv and Robocop is now out of date. A nice premise which falls flat in execution, while the story features promise around every corner and turn, new adversaries such as 'the Bone-Machine', 'Robocable', and of course good old OCP now developing a maniacal AI a lá 'Every AI from every movie with a rampaging AI'. Still enjoyable, still violent, still Robo. ” - fmaier
 
21.
Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation (2004 Video)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.5/10 X  
In the sequel to Paul Verhoeven's loved/reviled sci-fi film, a group of troopers taking refuge in an abandoned outpost after fighting alien bugs, failing to realize that more danger lays in wait. (88 mins.)
Director: Phil Tippett
“ Alright boys and girls, compared to the first one this one sucks, yeah, still, it has our favourite alien insectoid baddies the "Bugs" facing our strong and vigilant fellas from the Mobile Infantry once again, on a planet that seems to be composed only of one misty smoke-filled night. A group just happens to get trapped in an abandoned tower surrounded by a legion of creepy crawlies only finding out too late that the enemy is already inside. Sure it's not as action-packed as the first, but it has all the rest, Bugs, the same costumes, and the intro and outro have the same propaganda as its predecessor. Occasionally it does seem like a rather cheap TV production, but the Effects are good, there are a couple of gory parts and the story is not all that bad. And yeah, I think I know what went wrong with the 3rd movie's CGI, someone reused it in this movie, then saw how horrible the resulting movie had become, deleted the Bug footage from both movies (in hopes no one would ever make another one), leading to the people who wanted to do the 3rd to re-create the CGI yet only doing a half-assed job. Well, don't know what movie the others have been watching, but I actually liked this movie and do not think it should be erased from the glorious yet troubled history of the Federation. ” - fmaier
 
22.
In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale (2007)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.8/10 X  
A man named Farmer sets out to rescue his kidnapped wife and avenge the death of his son -- two acts committed by the Krugs, a race of animal-warriors who are controlled by the evil Gallian. (127 mins.)
Director: Uwe Boll
“ For the most thorough brain-numbing experience watch the extended (worst)director's cut. Another half an hour of epic stupidity driven by a vast array of star power aquired under most suspicious circumstances. It'll surely make you cringe in disgusted delight and knock your socks off one way or another. ” - fmaier
 
23.
Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky (1991)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.1/10 X  
A young man with superhuman strength is incarcerated at a prison run by corrupt officials and seeks to use his martial arts to clean up the system. (91 mins.)
Director: Simon Nam
“ The godfather of far eastern martial arts gorefests. Absurdly violent and heavenly overacted to such a degree that it transmorphs into an overplayed comedy with a ton of shock value all revolving around the literally unstoppable hero Ricky-Ho. ” - fmaier
 
24.
Lawnmower Man 2: Beyond Cyberspace (1996)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 2.4/10 X  
Jobe is resuscitated by Jonathan Walker. He wants Jobe to create a special computer chip that would... (93 mins.)
Director: Farhad Mann
 
25.
Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.7/10 X  
A group of martial arts warriors have only six days to save the Earth from an extra-dimensional invasion. (95 mins.)
 
26.
Spiders (2000)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 3.9/10 X  
A DNA experiment on a rare breed of spider is taking place on a NASA space shuttle, when a freak meteor shower engulfs the shuttle... (94 mins.)
Director: Gary Jones
“ I hate spiders, I dare even say I have a proper phobia of them. So what better way to deal with a case of full-fledged arachnophobia, you watch a bunch of movies about giant mutated spiders that are on a rampage. Yeah, there might not be much logic in that but it lets you watch a few good, and a few not so good movies. This one I watched as a kid, well not all of it, but parts of it. Let me say I thought it was scary and it disturbed me to a degree, would I have continued watching my prior views would have been shattered by the absurdity that followed. I'm not saying I didn't like this movie, I loved it, it's an A-class B-movie. As a viewer you only have to realise that the directors, while probably taking it serious to some degree, only really got into this movie when the spiders and the special-effects kick off. And boy did it look like they were having fun. ” - fmaier
 
27.
Trancers (1984)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
Jack Deth is a kind of cop/bounty hunter in the bleak Los Angeles of the future. He's become obssessed with chasing Whistler... (76 mins.)
Director: Charles Band
 
28.
Ghost Rider: Spirit of Vengeance (2011)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.3/10 X  
As Johnny Blaze hides out in Eastern Europe, he is called upon to stop the devil, who is trying to take human form. (96 mins.)
Director: Neveldine, Taylor
“ Loved it! Better than the first! Don't get me wrong this one still is no. 2, and a whole load of it. But it's fun, that should be enough. ” - fmaier
 
29.
Roger Corman's Frankenstein Unbound (1990)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
The ultimate weapon which was meant to be safe for the mankind produces global side effects including time slides and disappearances... (85 mins.)
Director: Roger Corman
“ This is an amazing B-movie, it's a classic re-imagined, with a twist, a sci-fi twist. Yes, you read correctly, this is Frankenstein, but with time travel and lasers, brave creations and a talking car, yes you read correctly and I'm not on drugs (yet), a talking car. The ever so great and impressive John Hurt plays the lead (albeit not Frankenstein, who is portrayed by the equally talented Raul Julia). To be honest I was surprised to see Hurt in this, but like Lee and so many others he seems to just pick the roles as they come, as actors do not tend to know the result of the films they play in. The supporting characters are great, cheesy at times, just like the story, but still highly entertaining. The monster is different, yet fitting for a movie of this calibre and kind. The movie plays out like an opera, cheesy and predictable at times, yet not lacking the clear entertainment factor. A truly awe-inspiring twist to an old myth. ” - fmaier
 
30.
Waxwork (1988)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
A wax museum owner uses his horror exhibits to unleash evil on the world. (95 mins.)
Director: Anthony Hickox
 
31.
House (1986)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.2/10 X  
A troubled writer moves into a haunted house after inheriting it from his aunt. (93 mins.)
Director: Steve Miner
“ In between the cheese and the campiness this film was genuinely creepy and even scary at times, yet in an Evil Dead 2 kind of way. While it did not hit the mark as many times as the forementioned horror (and comedy) classic, this one is enjoyable and creates a nice atmosphere. Few people have actually seen or heard of this film and few I mentioned this film to and watched it actually liked it, and if they did not to anywhere near as much as I did. The film tries so hard to be a horror film of its age it ends up baffling its audience and becoming a romp of randomness, from flashbacks to vietnam to a surprise set of baby-sitting scenes. ” - fmaier
 
32.
The Patriot (1998)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 4.1/10 X  
A respected doctor must race against time to find a cure for a lethal virus, unleashed by a paramilitary militia leader. (90 mins.)
Director: Dean Semler
“ Confusion persists over two films with the same name, one from 1998 (this one, obviously) and one two years later starring Braveheart himself, Mel Gibson, but one is *beep* and the other is genius. Well, to me this one is the genius one, not because it's a masterpiece, not because it's an instant classic, no because it's Steven Seagal, playing an Indian Doctor War Vet on a mission to save his hometown, most importantly his daughter from Nazi terrorists and a deadly virus. What's not to like? ” - fmaier
 
33.
Under Siege 2: Dark Territory (1995)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.4/10 X  
Casey Ryback hops on a Colorado to LA train to start a vacation with his niece. Early into the trip, terrorists board the train and use it as a mobile HQ to hijack a top secret destructive US satellite. (100 mins.)
Director: Geoff Murphy
“ I love this film, not because of Seagal, it's an action film and a romp, it has a quirky and half-interesting bad guy who keeps your attention and steals the show if you ask me. Seagal does what he does best, that is play an action hero who can save a doomed train with hostages without breaking as much as a sweat, he's the man who can turn it all around and he wears sleek black to show it, never tears his suit and even manages to bond with his niece, all culminating in an exploding train, or rather two exploding trains, a collapsing bridge with both Seagal and his niece at his brother's and her father's tombstone standing perfectly still without a word said, now that's what I call an ending. ” - fmaier
 
34.
Johnny Mnemonic (1995)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.6/10 X  
A data courier, literally carrying a data package inside his head, must deliver it before he dies from the burden or is killed by the Yakuza. (96 mins.)
Director: Robert Longo
“ Keanue Reeve's outburst near the end of the film is the highlight of this cheap sci-fi stinker, and makes it all worthwhile if you've stuck all the way through until that point. For me this film is pure fun, I love films that try hard, even too hard and go off the deep end early with quirky and confusing characters, there is Udo Kier as a bar owner, the seemingly miscast Dolph Lundgren as a priest and assassin of a church that preaches articial enhancements, and the great Takeshi Kitano in one of his few quasi-English speaking roles, all with Ice-T as the icing on the cake. ” - fmaier
 
35.
Virtuosity (1995)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 5.5/10 X  
A virtual-reality serial killer manages to escape into the real world. (106 mins.)
Director: Brett Leonard
“ Russel Crowe steals the show in this one as an AI harbouring the minds and personalities of serial killers, mass murderers and terrorists gone rogue and set loose onto the world. Who else to save the day but a beat-down ex-cop out to settle a score played by Denzel Washington. ” - fmaier
 
36.
X-Men Origins: Wolverine (2009)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.7/10 X  
A look at Wolverine's early life, in particular his time with the government squad Team X and the impact it will have on his later years. (107 mins.)
Director: Gavin Hood
“ Not a great movie at all, it's all over the place, too many characters that do nothing and just pad out the story and act as 'fan service' or try to attract more viewers. Still, I love Wolverine, he is, or as of recently, was my favourite comic book character, he's marvel's poster-boy badass and it's always a romp when he shows his claws. The whole point of this film is lost in the wake of X-Men 2, the true Wolverine film, this one is just padding and action, with a few enjoyable references and characters. ” - fmaier
 
37.
King Cobra (1999 Video)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 2.8/10 X  
A mutated snake escapes from a laboratory and terrorizes the residents of a small California brewery town. (93 mins.)
 
38.
The Shadow (1994)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.0/10 X  
In 30's New York City, the Shadow battles his nemesis, Shiwan Khan, who is building an atomic bomb. (108 mins.)
Director: Russell Mulcahy
“ Poor Alec Baldwin for acting in this less than successful film, hailed now to be one of the worst comic book adaptions of all time. For its time it was probably impressive and groundbreaking to some degree, with a flat and confusing story and cheesy overacting. Still very much worth a watch and an enjoyable ride at that. Still, poor Alec Baldwin. ” - fmaier
 
39.
Con Air (1997)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 6.8/10 X  
Newly paroled ex-con and former U.S. Ranger Cameron Poe finds himself trapped in a prisoner transport plane when the passengers seize control. (115 mins.)
Director: Simon West
“ Loads of great actors in a mixed bag that results in one of the greatest prison break films ever made. And all with Nick Cage in the middle, things couldn't be any better, wait they are, they have JOHN FREAKIN' MALKOVICH. ” - fmaier
 
40.
The Rock (1996)
    1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 7.4/10 X  
A mild-mannered chemist and an ex-con must lead the counterstrike when a rogue group of military men, led by a renegade general, threaten a nerve gas attack from Alcatraz against San Francisco. (136 mins.)
Director: Michael Bay
“ Not too proud in liking this film, it's a Michael Bay film, and we all know Michael Bay's crimes against cinema. What keeps me attentive with this one are not the explosions, the ludicrous plot or the patriotic undertones, no it's the actors and their dedication. I like it, Sean Connery is a legend, Nick Cage is great, and Michael Biehn's there as well doing a great job. Agree or not, Michael Bay should not direct films, he did this one right if you ask me, but one good film doesn't make him a good director. ” - fmaier

A paraplegic marine dispatched to the moon Pandora on a unique mission becomes torn between following his orders and protecting the world he feels is his home. (162 mins.)
Director: James Cameron
“ Of course I like this film, everyone does, but it is by far, and I apologise to David Cameron whom I consider a great director and cinematic visionary, one of the blandest films ever made, the plot is a forgettable regurgitated mish-mash of ideas and concepts that have been done to death, nothing original. The scenery is great, it is amazingly executed, the visual effects are stunning, the characters are interesting albeit the lead is a bit stale and your regular 101 guy with demons and cardboard personality. Sigourney Weaver is amazing, Michelle Rodriguez is....well....Michelle Rodriguez, and the villain is effective and intimidating. An enjoyable yet superficial piece of cinema. ” - fmaier

Crank: High Voltage (2009)

Chelios faces a Chinese mobster who has stolen his nearly indestructible heart and replaced it with a battery-powered ticker that requires regular jolts of electricity to keep working. (96 mins.)
Director: Neveldine, Taylor
“ This film is the most over-the-top, intensely brutal, testosterone-packed, adrenaline-fuelled, lightning-charged film made by the hands of men and their twisted minds. I love it, and while some may call me crazy, it is a crazy film, unlike the world has ever seen before. The characters equate caricatures of racial stereotypes, the violence borders splatter, and the story is straight out of a 90's arcade game and.... well let's say it's a meth and heroine addict's take on a screwball comedy. ” - fmaier
