Best Bad Movies – Some of My Favorites
In addition to what the guys brought up in this week’s, here are some of my personal horrible movie favorites.
Midnight Meat Train (2008)
Based on a story by Clive Barker. A photographer’s (Bradley Cooper) obsessive search for the darkest parts of New York puts him in the path of a well-dressed serial killer (Vinnie Jones). The killer butchers people in gruesome ways on the subway trains after hours. Sounds straightforward – it’s not.
Over the Top (1987)
Sylvester Stalone tries to establish a relationship with the son he abandoned as a baby. How? By being very good at arm wrestling. Father and Son hang out after being apart for 10 years. During this time father wins an arm wrestling contest, which cements his relationship with his son. Then there’s a bunch more bonding over arm wrestling. The kids’ mom doesn’t really matter in this, just arm wrestling.
Get out your action movie bingo card for this one. Skiing through the jungle? Check. Using hacky sack skills to knock people out? Yep. Beating up people with a motorcycle? You bet. This movie is the X-Games vs international terrorists. It is peak Vin Deisel and the story is dumb as a box of rocks.
The Chase (1994)
Charlie Sheen is a children’s party clown on the run. To evade the police he kidnaps a millionaire’s daughter (Kristy Swanson) and then goes on a highway chase. The two fall in love and have sex during the chase (no, they don’t stop the car). In the end, the millionaire’s daughter gets ahold of a helicopter, and they go to Mexico and live happily ever after without being extradited.
Oh, and Anthony Kiedis and Flea of the Red Hot Chili Peppers play vigilantes that try to stop them and end up being blown up.
Hudson Hawk (1991)
Master thief, Hudson Hawk, has just finished a stint in prison and wants nothing but a nice cappuccino. Unfortunately for him, he gets dragged into a series of heists by the eccentric Darwin and Minerva Mayflower. They want some major works by Leonardo Da Vinci that can help them turn lead into gold.
This movie has it all: musical heist numbers, killer mimes, an obsession with Italian coffee, quasi-historical mystery, hats, a side plot with the CIA, and really annoying bad guys that like to monologue. It’s goofy as all get out and honestly one of Willis’ best even though it’s a flop.
