Lists by mcfjr42
These are my top 500 favorite films; every movie on this list is a movie that holds a special place in my heart, kept my eyes glued to the screen, all that stuff. I don't put a movie on here lightly.
All the movies are listed in the order I'd rank them, but make no mistake; every movie on this list is something I really like. Some of them I just like more than some of the others.
This list is a work in progress.
This list is organized alphabetically. None of the movies are ranked in order of how much of a favorite film they are; that would be this list: http://www.imdb.com/list/VtKuvJSdIX8/?publish=save
These are my guilty pleasures, the films that are so bad, they're good. I don't want to put these on my Favorites list; that's for movies I think are good. These are the movies I think are stupid, ridiculous, and campy, but love anyway. I love these films as much as I love the good movies on my favorites list, just for different reasons.
There are certain requirements to be on this list. The first is that the movie's IMDB score is somewhere in the 5.8 range or less; the second is that I have to find enough enjoyment in it to put it here.
I also have three types of Awesomely Bad movies:
-Cheesy: These are films that are bad because of certain elements and tone; they're campy, dated, or have bizarre casting decisions. These ones could have been good with a few tweaks to story, casting, and writing, and are sort of middle of the road in terms of awesomely bad; they're too bad to be considered good, but they're still too entertaining to be as awful as it needs to be. Note: A Cheesy movie can also be campy; I use cheesy to denote either a campy or cheesy movie to save time.
-Awesomely Bad: The best of the worst. THIS is what I'm here for! These are movies you just can't defend. They are BAD. Sure, so bad they're good, but still pretty damn bad. They're just as enjoyable as cheesy movies but without any shred of thought put into them.
-Borderline Good: These movies are the oddities towards the bottom; they are almost good movies, but their low scores just can't justify me adding them to the other list of good films.
A list of some of the worst movies I've ever had the misfortune to have watched.
Here's some films coming out in the next few years that promise to be interesting, at the very least.

I'm a big fan of animated movies, so here's my top 50.
There's a lot of nice celebrities out there who really care about fans and aren't totally insane. Sadly, the flipside is also true; there's plenty of obnoxious jerks out there who make us think everyone famous is a vapid airhead. What makes a celebrity bad varies between them, but one thing these people all have in common is that they aren't making good cases for themselves.
Disney, much like Pixar, doesn't make bad films (I haven't seen "Home on the Range" or "Chicken Little," nor do I plan to).
Exactly what the title says; a list of my favorite directors.
*Note: These are only books I've read. Films I love that I haven't read the book of aren't on here
I frequently see all of these actors pop up on lists of the worst actors ever. Let me tell you why they shouldn't be there.
Some of these even go beyond acting, as a lot of lists these actors are on seem to make the assumption they just suck at everything or are awful people. I've made sure to point out why these people are all talented or at least not abysmally bad.
If you have a suggestion of someone who should be here, leave a comment.
These are all the most mediocre, disappointing, sucky and putrid episodes of otherwise good TV shows. Watching any of them is bound to make you cringe, and in some cases may even make you ill.
A list of movies that people hate and/or criticize that deserve a little more love. If you think I missed something tell me and I'll see if I can add it.
Pixar doesn't really make bad films, and I've given all but one of their films a 9 or above.
Still, "Cars" is the weakest of their films, looking more like a shameless commercial to sell toys and lacking the maturity and adult themes prevalent in films such as "Brave," "Up," and "Toy Story 3." It is, unfortunately, a shallow film. It gets a 7 from me.
Unlike a lot of people, I don't have too much a problem with the prequel trilogy. They have their stupid moments, but then so did the original trilogy.
The Harry Potter series, ordered from best to ok, as none of the movies are really 'bad,' per se. If anyone wants an explanation on a certain movie's placement, leave a comment.
The 10 best episodes so far of the hit cartoon My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic
Empire's list of the 500 greatest movies of all time. Feel free to comment on which movies you think are placed too high, placed too low, which ones shouldn't be on here and which ones are missing.
