The quality of a film and its valuation is something very relative. The snobbery that has been living among the public and critics in recent years, cutting all kinds of films by the same pattern threatens to become a very unhealthy attitude when it comes to going to see movies.
In order to relax sphincters and the intellectual airs of more than one, we have decided to take a breather and bet on such humorous cinema, which is simply great. This is it, 5 great movies so bad that they are even good and funny . This humorous quintet has earned its place in the annals of history for being pretentious films that, in their own way, failed critically and at the box office, but became cult titles. Seriously, give us a few minutes of your time, you will not be disappointed at all.
These 5 Movies That Are So Bad They’re Great
Flash Gordon (1980)
In 1980, horror was known to many, saved only by the theme song to Queen . Dino De Laurentiis produced a rather embarrassing adaptation of the Flash Gordon comics . Shameful? Tatty and funny, we mean. And it is that, when Star Wars had revolutionized the scene of science fiction and space opera, the director Mike Hodges gave Industrial Light & Magic a kick to go back to making a sci-fi film as it was done in the old days.
Flash Gordon is a film that, if it had been released in the 50s, would have been a great movie, but its derisory script, the papier-mâché of its settings and its third-rate special effects smelled of the late night at the time of its release. Still, it’s so hard to watch that it’s funny. Above all, if you know that it is a poem to the old television series of the character. Oh, and remember… Flash a-ah Savior of the Universe!!!!
Masters of the Universe (1987)
Those of us who grew up with He-Man and the Masters of the Universe took a jug of cold water (or not) with the Masters of the Universe movie starring Dolph Lundgren and Frank Langella. Somewhere between Star Wars, the space-opera, the Mattel dolls and Jack Kirby’s The Fourth World comics (whose designs inspired those of the film), this is a filthy funny movie from the 80s.
Masters of the Universe – Criticism of the live action movie of the 80s
And it is that, despite its weaknesses, this is an honest, epic film that retains a lot of the spirit of toys. Furthermore, an actor like Frank Langella remembers her with a smile, referring to her role as Skelletor as one of his favorites and the one with which he had the best time throughout his career.
The Army of Darkness (1992)
The entire Evil Dead franchise has a certain seedy and hard sieve. Halfway between gore and black comedy, Sam Raimi turned shabby art into art. None of the Infernal Possession movies, nor its sequel series Ash vs. The Evil Dead have waste. However, no one will ever say that we are dealing with a boring brand in the broadest sense of the word.
As an example of a bad but tremendously rewarding movie, we have to highlight the third installment in the series, Army of Darkness . Sam Raimi had the budget to make an epic film, with animated skeletons and all, but the truth is that it is a very hard parody of the genre. Of course, with worthy moments to remember.
The Room (2005)
The Room has the dubious honor of being the best worst movie in history, as The Disaster Artist has already demonstrated , the biopic that tells of its production. Tommy Wiseau cooked up by himself, with a few friends, a drama co-starring Greg Sestero and Juliette Danielle.
Unresolved plots, a confusing and inconclusive plot, an edit that would unsettle even someone on lorazepam… The Room has the honor of being considered ” Citizen Kane of funny movies.” There must be a reason.
Sharknado (2013 -…)
What can be more dangerous than a tornado and a shark? A tornado full of killer sharks! Don’t think about it, it doesn’t make any sense. Despite this, Sharknado is the most popular seedy but funny film franchise of the decade. Six main films in the saga and three spin-offs guarantee his good health.
Never has a disaster movie been so funny, nor so highly aware of its seediness. Let’s praise Syfy for producing and supporting it over the years!
And even so, we left some in the pipeline from nonsense like Manos: The hands of fate to super dumb comedies like The devil put his hand in . And that’s not counting cult films like Last Action Hero (a highly underrated satire, by the way), the great musical The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the entire filmography of Ed Wood .
For this reason, we are one hundred percent sure that some of you have a really hard movie in mind to watch, except for those with a sense of humor and who only want to have a good time thanks to a movie so bad that it is even good and hilarious. If you have the title of a movie so bad it’s funny on the tip of your tongue, don’t be shy about it anymore. That’s what the comments section is for.
