    Stumbled on "The Spirit of '76" on the DVR and it brings to mind some movies that should have been awful but I liked.

    Mars Attacks
    Idiocracy

    Anyone have a favorite, horrible movie?

    Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man

    Plan 9 From Outer Space is the best bad movie ever made. And the Ed Wood biopic with Johnny Depp and Martin Landeau is excellent too.

    All 80s movies.

    I caught some of the original ghostbusters last night. It was stupid, poorly written, poorly acted, the whole plot is idiotic, and the SFX sucked. Like most similar 80s movies. It was great.

    It was funny seeing two of the ghostbusters cruising around in Ecto 1 smoking cigarettes. You don’t see that as much anymore.

    Classic when the little dealer told Chevy Chase to go buy a bullet and rent a gun to kill himself.
    Another good one:

    Used Cars
