YMMV / Roller Blade

Go To

  • Cult Classic: The movie was completely ignored by critics upon release but became a huge hit within a small but devoted fanbase. Until today the movie is praised as one of the greatest period pieces and schlock fests of the 80s.
  • So Bad, It's Good: The movie has a high standing among several badmovie pages all around the internet. Most of them agree that the cheap look, the incomprehensible plot line, the non existing acting, the weird settings, the strange language and the tons of 80s charm are all a great experience, although most of them see that it was at least to an extent intentionally bad.
  • What Do You Mean, It Wasn't Made on Drugs?: The general consensus about this film is that it could only be produced heavily under the influence for its overall weirdness, colorful settings and mixing of genres. However the director always claimed otherwise.
