The Net (1995)
nthurkettle posted a topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsSo, Facebook glitched today and momentarily declared me dead, which was hilarious. And it reminded me of this awesomely crazy movie from 1995 when most people didn't really understand what "The Internet" was and Sandra Bullock was this rising star and so they just put her in a dumb Hollywood thriller where she's this shut-in nobody recognizes but with fabulous hair who, like Internets her way into a conspiracy, and then bad guys Internet her identity and then Internet her friend to death so she won't Internet the truth to anyone about how they're Internetting stuff in an evil way. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=46qKHq7REI4
Tales from the Hood (1995)
LovicFortin posted a topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsBoyz N the Hood meets Tales from the Crypt in this alternately horrific, funny, and socially conscious anthology film. The four grim vignettes are framed by the tale of three street hoods who break into Mr. Simm's inner-city funeral home to find a stash of drugs. The mortician puts them off, by telling them a few eerie stories about his "patrons." I won't lie I F****** love Clarence Williams III performance in this movie. Moments like ''-We shoot them real good with embaulming fluid mainly. You know it keeps them from *breathes in* smelling.'' or just ''The SHIT!?!?'' really makes you appreciate an actor of his caliber. The rest is pretty much straight up garbage and I loved it. Here is the whole movie, enjoy folks!
Solar Crisis (1990)
mea posted a topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsIt's a confusing mess of badly written intertwining plots, veteran actors the likes of Jack Palance and Charlton Heston, apocalyptic future and weird eroticism. Apparently there was a very different Japanese version too. It's directed by Alan Smithee which just says it all! I actually watched it first aged 12 at the high of my Parker Lewis crush and for years attributed my "WTF I don't get it" reaction to my young age. Rewatched it recently and nope, my age wasn't the problem... Anyone else seen it/remembers it/cares to explain the logic behind it?
The Phantom (1996)
GOZU posted a topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsOne of the craziest, cheesiest, and weirdest superhero movies of the 90's. It also features potentially the creepiest last line of dialogue in a comic book movie ever: "No one refuses The Phantom." It's on Netflix Watch Instantly and definitely worth a look.
The Club (1994)
BrentJensen posted a topic in Bad Movie RecommendationsTo use a tired cliche, I don't want to really tell you about 1994's "The Club" - it's best that you experience it for yourself. But here's the synopsis from IMDB: Time stops at midnight at the Senior Prom for five students, one murderous counselor, and John. They must find the courage to face themselves or, when time starts again, they may find that they are joining John's Club. All you have to do is commit murder... or suicide. I found this movie cruising Netflix, so it's available there, and boy am I glad I did. Do you want to see the future Executive Producer of Fringe doing an insane impression of Beetlejuice/Jack Nicholson/Ben Stiller as Tom Cruise? How about Scut Farkus from "A Christmas Story" turning into a demon mid-coitus? Also featuring Sons of Anarchy's Kim Coates in a tour-de-force performance and a plot that makes little to no sense. You may be thinking that it sounds like a typical 90s teen horror flick. But trust me, it is so much more. It's a strange brew of trying to be seriously scary but also funny... but fails on both levels. Here's the trailer. I think this movie would be absolutely awesome for HDTGM.
Putney Swope posted a topic in Bad Movie Recommendations"In order to escape from the mob, an African-American man must disguise himself as a white man." This synopsis doesn't do justice to how insanely bad this movie is. It's completely ridiculous from the get-go. Frank "Skeletor" Langella plays the villain, a producer/ mobster who reveals his criminal ties to our lead, Miles("comedian" Lenny Henry), during a turbulent flight. The plane lands, and Miles is afraid for his life. Naturally, Miles seeks help from a make-up artist friend to disguise him as a white guy. Well, wouldn't you know it, Miles ends up being mistaken for the hitman that is supposed to kill him. Miles then must assume a parade of various identities to keep up the ruse. A lot of familiar actors show up, James Earl Jones, Michael Mckean, and JT walsh. Also, Lenny Henry was apparently signed to a three picture deal with Disney. Clearly, that didn't come to fruition as this was a massive bomb. This would be an awesome double feature with either "Soul Man"(also featuring James Earl Jones) or "White Chicks".
