Awful awful movies that redeem themselves.

Life is short, no one will ever be able to read every book or see every movie, so it sucks when you stumble upon a bad egg and feel death's inevitable clutch creep that many hours closer.

BUT- sometimes there's gold in them thar hills.

Take R.O.T.O.R for example. A bad ripoff of Robocop, and for those unfortunate enough to have seen it, it rises straight to the elite ranks of bad movies. However, hidden in one scene, the epic scene when the super high-tech (snigger) R.O.T.O.R police chassis is presented for the first time, something special happens. The poor sod who wrote the script slipped in almost a half dozen Beach Boys references. Why on earth they did that shall, I think, remain a mystery. But that mystery takes away the sting of 2 hours of life drained.



Can you spot them?

Re: Awful awful movies that redeem themselves.

I would say Boa Vs Python...

its just too awful that it is pretty amazing...


giant cgi snakes? check
horrible sex scene involving one of said snakes? check
(just for clarification two strangers are having some intimate time in a car in the woods, man disappears, snake takes over and the girl apparently doesnt sense the difference....)
gratuitous sponge bath scene? check
really awful plot? check

heres a trailer to whet your appetite...

I love how the worse the movie is the bigger the handguns get. Desert Eagle (like the lift scene) is a favorite.

EDIT: Snatch being the notable exception (knew someone would point that out!)

Re: Awful awful movies that redeem themselves.

This movie is amazing awful. It's so crazily bad that the actors committed suicide afterwards (well, not all, but enough). If you want to watch it, watch with friends. It's hilarious.

Aw, there's nothing awful about Pee Wee's Big Adventure! The whole film is great!

For the curious, somehow the following Beach Boys lines were squeezed into the ROTOR scene:

Good vibrations
I get around
God only knows
Heroes and villains
Rock and roll to the rescue
