Well, there were about 4 or 5 movies on the list I actually liked, but for the most part not a bad list of stinkers.

There were quite a few movies on that list that I liked.  I would never classify them as great movies (more like guilty pleasures), but I still liked 'em.

-  Natural Born Killer (I know, I'm one of the very few who liked this one)
-  Braham Stoker's Dracula
-  PCU
-  Lethal Weapon 3
-  Robin Hood:  Men in Tights

Gotta agree with some of the ones on that list like Natural Born Killers. Truly awful. But I would argue that some of his "also-ran's" need to be on the main list. If you're doing a 50-Worst of the '90's list and you don't include Freejack, Mannequin Two, Stuart Saves His Family and Shakes the Clown on there, then you really haven't suffered. Oh, dare I forget the gems "Street Fighter" and "Under Siege 2"? :lol:

Manos: The Hands of Fate.

Oh, wait, that didn't come out in the 90's. It still sucks though. biggrin

Godzilla.  

Maybe I'm just too much a fan of the originals, but that was near sacreligious.  The biggest tragedy is that they spent 20 times the highest budget of the Japanese films and it sucked so much ass.  But at least they had the Taco Bell tie-in.  :roll:

I'm really surprised NBK was on that list, I thought it was very good. A lot of folks did miss the point, I guess, and it certainly doesn't use a typical filming style.  I though Stone competently illustrated America's love for excessive violence.

I also loved Bram Stoker's Dracula, and Waterworld wasn't near as bad as people made it out to be. Just my .02

Face Off should've been #1 on the list, now THAT was a stinker.

This list is pretty incoherent.  There seems to be no rhyme or reason to his choices.  Hudsucker Proxy(7.4 at IMDB) is higher on the list than Showgirls(2.7 at IMDB).  Hunh?

I personally hate lists like this because at the end of the day it is all about personal choice.  Unless you know what his taste is you have no idea what your reaction to those films would be.  And it seems like he must randomly like movies because I can't pick out any pattern to his list.

THANK YOU for providing that link - I never realized there was all that additional information concerning the making of this film on the imdb, though I suppose I should have assumed, considering its notoriety.

Wow, interesting - and creepy - accounts! Two confirmed suicides (Including John "Torgo" Reynolds) shortly after filming, filming was done with a silent had-held camera with the voices looped in by 3 'actors' in post, Hal Warren - the director, writer, star - later apparently produced a second script, "Wild Desert Bikers" Oh, if ONLY that vision could have been realized!

You're welcome. I enjoy spreading around pure evil when I can. smile

And a big thank you to MST3K for watching that stinker of a film and releasing it on DVD for all of us to buy.  thumbsup

There was acouple there I liked (Lethal Weapon 3 & Joe vs the Volcano) and one my wife liked(Dracula) but most I had never seen and those that I did I agree were "stinkers".

I liked Alien Resurrection.  At least until the awful white thing at the end.

Weekend at Bernies is a classic of cinematic comedy history. I mean, come on, there's a dead man and people think he's alive. What could be funnier than that?

I question its accuracy. Rushmore is no where on this list.

Wow, I really disagree about Robin Hood: Men in Tights and The People vs Larry Flynt.  Also, I liked Face/Off (although I recognize it wasn't high art) and can't understand the ubiquitous hate for Joe vs. the Volcano.  I really liked how Meg Ryan played three different people in that one.  OK it has been a while since I saw it, but really, I didn't think it was so bad.

The only one that stuck out to me was Legends of the Fall.

I actually enjoyed that one.

I liked Drop Dead Fred, although I admit I haven't seen it in probably ten years. I remember the female lead being really hot.

I understand people have different reasons for liking, or not liking movies, but Face Off would go in my 10 worst of all time list.

I though Cage and Travolta were going to do the mano-a-mano thing for.....ever. 20 minutes into it, I wanted them both to die.
