Schlocky but memorable movies that should have been awful but somehow aren't

    Buckaroo and Mars Attack’s are both INTENTIONALLY schlocky movies.
    And yes, both are awesome.

    Waterworld was unintentionally bad. Somewhat surprised that Costner’s career survived it. Doesn’t mean I didn’t like it ... <blush>

    Time Cop was great, as much as Van Damme sucks he had a few good movies - Kickboxer was ok but Hard Target was great.

    Waterworld sucked - they should have used the sets to make a Disney ride instead of a movie.

    The Postman is a mix of suck and good - kind of waste of good post apocalypse setting.

    True, they are first cousins, once removed. Olivia's father Mike d'Abo (Miriam's first cousin) was singer for the group Manfred Mann.

    Slap Shot!

    I heard Paul Newman drank a six of beer every morning on the set just to get into character

    The only movie I almost tossed my cookies, and I liked the movie.

    Killer Clowns from Outer Space
    CORRECTION, not Invaders from Mars but meant. Spaced Invaders

    If schlocky and awesome is a criteria.

    Not schlocky, but mostly forgotten (and shouldn't be!): Nobody's Fool (1994, Paul Newman).

    For the sake of forum propriety, I won't post the most memorable scene here, but Melanie Griffith's frontal assets are very memorable!

    Whatever you do, don’t watch the sequel. It’s that bad.
