Went down a rabbit hole on this in the "Bad Movie Recommendations" forum a while back and the thread finally surfaced again, allowing me to post it here. (So that's why there's not a lot of terribly new stuff on here). I've noticed that a lot of the movies that they do fall into certain categories, like the following: 1. Something that was aiming absurdly high and failed so miserably (Gods of Egypt, The Jazz Singer remake, Battlefield Earth) 2. Something that was aiming low and still failed miserably (Howling 2, Sleepaway Camp, Star Wars Christmas Special) 3. Trying to rip off something else and failing so miserably (Mac & Me, Beautiful Creatures, Congo) 4. Weak celebrity vehicles, especially those with someone already famous for something else "looking to get into acting" (Crossroads, Spiceworld, Kazaam) 5. Attempts to take an existing franchise (not always already a film one) "In a different direction" (Superman IV, Halloween III, Super Mario Brothers) 6. Notorious bombs/duds (Gigli, Stop or my Mom will Shoot, Batman & Robin) 7. Notoriously so-bad-they're-good movies (Birdemic, Zardoz, Gymkata, The Room) 8. Straight-up next-level bonkers stuff, regardless of its infamy (Face/Off, The Room, Hard Ticket to Hawaii, Surf Ninjas) 9. Absolutely anything related to the Fast and the Furious movies. Any others that I'm not thinking of?
