Movies so bad ya just gotta watch 'em
« on: July 04, 2018, 06:43:38 PM »
I watched a movie starring Kelsey Grammar the other day called "7 Guardians of the Tomb", a Chinese /Australian cooperative flick.

It was laughably bad. So bad that it's actually worth seeing. Lots of fake copies of the Xian Terra Cotta Warriors though. That was cool. Reminded me of my trip there.

Best line, "Go to hell." Kelsey Grammar, as he buggered off with the elixir of youth while dying of multiple funnel web spider bites which had been imported from Oz by the ancient emperor to protect his goodies.

As good as he was in Frazier, any movie starring Kelsey Grammar has got to be laughably bad. ‘Down Periscope’ anyone? To be clear, nothing you ‘gotta watch’.

Not a movie, but the series "Jean-Claude Van Johnson". It is a self-parody, the premise being that J-C Van Damme is really a secret agent, and his films are his "cover job".

So terrible it's genius.

Seriously??? Down Periscope was hilarious! I've watched it a few times.

Legend of a Fighter... "In terms of style, I beat him real good, all he knows is how to punch <collapses>"

And of course... The Room, Tommy Wiseau's performance will go down in hallowed antiquity... If you're not planning on watching it, here are the best bits.

To be fair, I was in 6th grade when I saw it, so perhaps it was over my head. I find that hard to believe though, because I was watching Frasier at the same time! It’s hard to get internet backing for my opinion however. IMDb rates it 6/10, Rotten Tomatoes a lowsy 12%, Metacritic a middling 39%, but 90% of Google users (which is basically everybody, right?) liked the film (according to Google).

That would be 90% of "mostly people who saw it ears ago and liked it enough to buy it on Google Play".

This is true for most movies that pre-date Google Play.

I present to you the 'Five Deadly Venoms'! Filled with cheesy lines, badly aged fight scenes and lots of Wu-Tang Clan-sampled dialogue  8) Recommended viewing!

I'm trying to figure out what the kazoo thing is. I imagine it was a VHS included with a kazoo to show kids how to use it, and then this guy edited all the bizarre parts together on youtube? hahahaha

I'm sure that's what it was. Did you ever try getting through the full thirty-minute version? You'll want to gouge your eyes out (or maybe just close the window) after three minutes. That man did a fantastic editing job; His version is all you need.
