Blade Runner 2049
The first thing to say is that this is definitely not pyramid selling, OK?

Not anything close to Hollywood so this is technically off-topic, but the best so bad they're good movies for me would have to be

1. Love on a Leash
2. The Room
3. anything by Neil Breen
4. Cool Cat Saves the Kids (or anything by Derek Savage in general)
5. After Last Season

Honorary mentions to Uwe Boll (none of his movies are watchable but challenging and defeating 3 movie critics in a boxing match is an alpha move) and Birdemic (a classic, but it has since been outdone)

Although in terms of actual financially-backed "real" movies, there's always that one where Kevin Spacey turns into a cat or whatever which is terrible but entertaining. And Sleepless but only because they got T.

(you can probably make a pretty good guess at what YouTube channels I watched based off this post lol)

Wait, actually on-topic, wasn't Citizen Kane a box office flop?
Also, Disney's Treasure Planet.

Star Trek:, The Motion Picture. Underrated Trek film.

I thought The Phantom Menace was better than the forgettable shitshows that followed it.

Nailed it.

Although I haven't listened to the podcast in a while to be honest, and the only one of their channels I regularly watch these days is ralph's.

They're all timestamped, so I'll listen to the intro and the QA, and I'll only listen to the in-depth stuff if it's a movie I've seen.

Children of Men
Blade Runner 2049
The Good Dinosaur
The Iron Giant
Scott Pilgrim vs The World
The Shawshank Redemption
Shoot 'Em Up
Cloud Atlas
The Sisters Brothers
Big Trouble in Little China
Disney's Treasure Planet
Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets
Office Space
Clue
A Christmas Story
Dredd (2012)
Labyrinth

And so many more. Some were just overlooked or misunderstood for their time and didn't deserve to be flops. Others are mediocre to genuinely bad, but I like them anyway.

I've tried and failed to develop some affection for Dune. Love everything else David Lynch has done. With Dune, I think the criticisms are justified. It's not objectively awful... It's just not very good. And Sting is in it, which should be an automatic disqualifier for any film.

Dredd > Judge Dredd.

Shoot Em Up was quietly brilliant.

Blade Runner 2049 is one of my favorite movies.

Plan 9 From Outer Space

Thanks to a Seinfeld episode I found and watched this film. It was so bad it was good.

Anyone a fan of The Room?

Absolutely hate that film, but I understand why it's got a cult following.  :laugh:

You're tearing my apart, Chinguetti!

Loved The Room. Disaster Artist was also great fun!

I'm also really surprised. I thought it was brilliant, had no idea it flopped.

As well did I.  I have yet to even see the original and I loved BR 2049.  I guess it was too good for today's audience.

Watch Blade Runner: Final Cut. I understand more each time I watch it.
