Bad Summer Movies!
Posted 29 May 2012 - 06:12 PM
As for favorite bad summer movies... hrm. I kind of enjoy "ID4," if only because I saw it in the theater when I was about six (my parents took me outside during the autopsy scene) and I still watch that movie as though I don't have as much cynicism in me. "Godzilla [in name only]" could make for a good episode, I think (the 'Mayor Ebert and his assistant Siskel' thing could be worth at least three minutes of discussion).
And the "Jaws" movies would be good if they did a special episode or two about taking a good movie and progressively making stupider sequels. The late Richard Jeni had a great bit about "Jaws 4," which I am sorely tempted to plagiarize/quote to support it getting an episode. (Since I'm too lazy to look up the YouTube clip of him on the Tonight Show, here's what Wikiquote had from it: "The title of this movie should be 'Here's a Fish. You're Stupid.'")

Also, I stand behind John Carter, and not just because he has a shapely behind. I like that movie!

Here on Earth (2000) - Summer romance starring Leelee "Baby Helen Hunt" Sobieski and Chris Klein. Neither is believable as a human teenager. Knee cancer.
Orca (1977) - Haven't seen this one, but everything about it sounds amazing.

These aren't Summer movies, which is a shame as 2012 is perfect for HDTGM. It's just the same set piece repeated 5 times.
Hopefully they'll do it (and The Core) at some point, maybe they could do a disaster movie month
