Phil’s Top 5… Bad But Good Movies

Phil’s Top 5… Bad But Good Movies

Other Cr*p Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five. This time out: Bad But Good Movies.   For me this are films the term “So Bad They Are Good” were coined for.

Close but no cigar: Trolls 2, Almost Every Friday 13th from Part 5 onwards, Howard the Duck, Most of JCVD’s later films

 

5 – Grease 2
It’s no Grease that much is for sure, but you know what?  I still find myself signing along to the songs every now and then (yes I own the soundtrack!) and whilst the film lacks the charm of JT it almost makes up for it with a pre-nose job Michelle Pfeiffer and a pre Rex Manning Maxwell Caulfield.  It misses in almost every scene yet wins on charm and likability.

 

4 – Masters Of The Universe
Yes I know it has so little to do with the source material it’s even laughable that it’s called Masters Of The Universe but this low budget Cannon classic was a massive part of my childhood.  It’s sci-fi with guns, swords and flying things.  It’s actually brilliant. 

 

3 – Anaconda
Jon Voight.  The leer. (If you ever saw Film whatever it was with Barry Norman around the time this came out the running joke of the Leer was amazing). The terrible effects.  The fact it got a mainstream cinema release.  Anaconda was a film years ahead of its time (see Sharknado!).

 

2 – Tank Girl
Tank Girl was a rock ‘n roll cluster fuck of a film. It was disjointed, had a 5 min song and dance routine in the middle and almost killed the careers of everyone in it. Yet… in it’s own way it almost perfectly encapsulated the manic low brow source material and was the first (and I think last) film to reduce me to tears on the floor of a cinema.

 

1 – Showgirls
I bloody love Showgirls. Not for the smut but just for how god damn terrible it is.  The script, the acting, THIS scene (see below – the most amazingly bad sex scene ever) it just oozes horribleness. Yet few films have made me smile or caused me so much (unintentional) joy.  Showgirls is the best spoof ever.  Simple as that.

Phil’s Top 5… Guilty Pleasure Films

Quick Review Top 5

Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five.  This time out: My Favourite Guilty pleasure Films!

 

Close but no cigar: Anaconda, Grease 2, Tango & Cash, Masters Of The Universe

5 – Bad Boys
What ya gunna do? Bad Boys was a slice of 90’s action awesomeness with Will Smith making his big screen debut in an evolution of the Lethal Weapon idea of miss matched cops.  It works because Bay was limited by budget.


4 – Showgirls
It’s terrible yet brilliant at the same time.  The over acting, the terrible script, THAT pool s-x scene. Showgirls is a joy to watch. 


3 – Con Air
Aaction film where there’s little action.  But man what a film.  A quotable script, an amazing cast and Nick Cage’s awesome hair.  One of THE best guilty pleasure films of the 90’s

2 – Cannonball Run
Burt Reynolds, some awesome cars and two of the Rat Pack reunited on screen, Cannonball Run is brilliantly enjoyable.  It’s terrible by most film making standards of course but it’s relentless fun wins you over.


1 – Top Gun
Come on was it going to be ANY other film. Top Gun is awesome.  The planes, the sound track, the camp, the cheese – it’s the bets of the 80’s. But look past that and you have a well crafted, expertly direction action film of the like we’ve never seen before.
