    Jacob's Ladder (2019)

    Great suggestion, this movie looks absolutely insufferable as a remake. Very excited to watch it tomorrow.

    Max Steel (2016)

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tf4sa0BVJVw This one hits a lot of "cinematic failure" check boxes. It's based on a Mattel toy, it lost $8 million, and it maintains a flawless 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. A lot of bad choices went into this. Initially, Taylor Lautner was up for the lead, but left due to his commitments to the Stretch Armstrong film. Thankfully, Maria Bello and Andy Garcia weren't up to anything else? This is a lukewarm slurry of Twilight, Iron Man, and....uh...Flight of the Navigator?

    Cam (2018)

    Ehhhh this movie was really good! Was one of my favorite horror movies of 2018 for sure.

    No Escape (1994)

    Holy cow this movie was pretty fun. Lord of the Flies meets Mad Max with a dash of the prison island from Face/Off. I really enjoyed Stuart Wilson as the over-the-top villain. The cast is filled with a lot of memorable character actors. There are more "Oh it's that guy" moments in this movie than anything I've seen lately. Plus, stuff blows up real good--this is a Big Dumb Movie. Makes total sense that this is the director of Goldeneye, Vertical Limit, Mask of Zorro, and Green Lantern. It's a too bad a good copy is hard to find in the U.S.

    Babes in Toyland (1986)

    Oh jesus, I watched this so much as a kid. My parents bought it for me on VHS at McDonald's for some reason. I believe this is also how we got our copy of Raiders of the Lost Ark.

    Class of 1999 (1990)

    This movie rules! It's a super fun Dystopian High School movie. I bought the Vestron re-issue this year, because my Korean-import DVD wasn't hacking it anymore. There is a funny story in the blu-ray commentary about Stacy Keach insisting on his character being albino. Apparently his wig and contacts were really expensive, but you can see every dollar up on the screen.

    The Core (2003)

    This is still one of the more enjoyable bad movies I've seen. It's gleefully ascientific. All the problems this team faces may as well be solved by magic. The introduction of the giant laser drill is such a Soft-Sci power move, it cracked me up. It would have been no less ridiculous if they were led to the core by a horde of orcs.

    Uninvited (1988)

    Bumping this classic in celebration of it's 30th anniversary last week! Might be my favorite bad film ever. A mutant/poisonous cat lives inside of a regular cat and terrorizes the passengers of a gangster's boat. It's kind of like, uh, Alien, I guess? Should be seen for the puppetry work alone. George Kennedy looks really bored here, and Clu Gulager makes some, interesting acting decisions.

    The Butterfly Effect (2004)

    Good lord that's a bonkers ending.

    Terrorvision (1986)

    The theme song for this movie bangs and it gets stuck in my head way more often that it should. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xvkx4JFt74o

    What Lies Beneath (2000)

    Ohhhhhh wow I didn't notice that
  12. I rewatched this recently and it was a lot of fun to see again. It certainly doesn't have the same sophisticated sheen that I remembered from 18 years ago. This movie is just Rear Window but it's dumber and hornier. It's inexplicable that this movie cost $100 million to make, it's a laughably clichéd supernatural thriller. Ford and Pfeiffer try their best, but can't overcome a truly terrible script. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5wWymGTyd2M

    The Glass House (2001)

    I watched Glass House and Joy Ride so many times in 2001

    Raising Cain (1992)

    Oh boy, I just watched the re-cut version of this movie and it is PRETTY GOOD! Totally all over the place, really weird plot. TONS of Lithgow. Like, way more Lithgow than I bargained for. This was a fun one.

    Snake Eyes (1998)

    I just rewatched this last week! This would be a wonderful choice, we're overdue for a Nic Cage movie. This one is a lot of fun. It might be the most "Cagey" of Nicolas Cage's performances. It's definitely on the short list.

    The Rock (1996)

    Daylight (1996)

    LOL yes. That is one of the silliest moments in this. After surviving all the explosions, collapses, floods, fans, and criminals, he accepts his own death after tripping on some stairs.

    Queen of the Damned (2002)

    I remember reading that Ann Rice was not happy about this movie. Butchering two of her books at once would certainly be grounds for feeling upset lol. E&TB might've been the gothest popular thing at the time ha! I wonder if she had music like that in mind. Like L'estat is a vampiric Morissey idea. It'd either be that or he'd be singing Guns 'n' Roses-type arena rock.

    Queen of the Damned (2002)

    Ha! That's great info. I've wondered how that scene differs from the book. It's such an odd way to start that I figured it must depart from the source. Like, I definitely couldn't picture how Ann Rice would write Nu Metal into a story. "Lestat opened his throat and, with the power of a thousand trapped souls, began to sing, 'Something takes a part of meeeeeee...'"

    Queen of the Damned (2002)

    And lest any one forget, the event that kicks off this entire movie is Lestat being awoken by a Nü Metal band practicing near his grave. He immediately takes over as their singer.

    Queen of the Damned (2002)

    Please, keep the dream alive! I will never stop bumping this thread (or Surviving the Game, probably). Of all the recommended movies in this sub, this is one of the best for HDTGM.

    Hawk The Slayer (1980)

    Bumping to share this master class of practical effects and editing

    Brainscan (1994)

    I'm a Brainscan apologist! This is a really fun movie. HDTGM doesn't do very many horror movies, but they're always pretty silly (Chopping Mall/Howling 2/Jason X). This would fit the bill! It also fits nicely with some of the HDTGM selections from the '90s that deal with the internet and technophobia. This is more supernatural than those films, but it's not far from Lawnmower Man or Johnny Mnemonic. Fun Factoid: the Brainscan theme is sampled by Three 6 Mafia on their first album. You can hear it on "Fuckin Wit Dis Click".

    Daylight (1996)

    Yeah this movie deserves some attention! During that era of bangin' disaster movies, this was a tape that was in my VCR a lot. This is a big, loud, and very stupid movie.

    Ghost in the Machine (1993)

    This would be a really fun one! I can still picture the VHS box on it's shelf at my local video store. As a kid, I thought Ghost in the Machine was bad ass. I'll have to rewatch this regardless of it being picked for HDTGM.
