Folks I love cheesy flicks. Army of darkness and evil dead. Starship Troopers makes my list too. Let us not forget the cheese filled Sci-fi Epic. Independence Day or ID 4 in short.

It’s so refreshing to read one of these threads that isn’t just “Blah blah blah The Room blah.”

I’ll second the recommendation for The Apple. There are legions of bad musicals out there (including two more released in 1980: Can’t Stop the Music and Xanadu) but this one pretty much takes the entire cake shop in terms of over-the-top tackiness and cheese.

And I’ll see your Fantasy Mission Force and raise you Wolf Devil Woman.

Hey, I enjoyed Xanadu. Where else can you get Greek mythology, Gene Kelly in his last movie role, the Tubes on stage with a big band, roller disco, Don Bluth's first non-Dizney animation, and lots of deliciously bad acting? All with good ELO music.

As far as I know, this was the first time a movie adapted the studio title to fit the movie. It's done fairly often now, but at the time it was unprecedented.

Another remarkable feature: Macy's is using a song from the movie for their latest ad campaign.

Space Thunderkids reminded me of Thundercats, a cartoon series that was so silly I used to regard it as So Bad It's Good even at the time. Somewhere, probably sitting by a pool in LA drinking cocktails, is some actor who really enjoyed themselves voicing Mum-Rah. The Large Ham involved was epic. And not to forget Snarf, surely a hot contender for most irritating cartoon animal ever.

One more thing about Xanadu. It has a moral that is applicable to the 1980s and beyond. If you have a dream, if you work hard and take risks to attain it, you still have to settle for a cheap copy.

I could pimp out my review for The Swinger here but that would be wrong*

.

Back on the subject of Xanadu, the whole thing was basically backpedaling, considering it was all dreamed up as a cash-in on the roller disco craze, but the whole Disco Sucks thing exploded (literally) during the filming of the movie. The damage control wrought by producers on the movie arguably made it worse than it would have been otherwise, and yet, also made it the special odd duck it is. And as bad as you think the film may be, the soundtrack is crazy incredible!

This just begs to question: What the hell were the creators smoking? This looks so hilariously bad and yet seems slightly clever.

I recognize some of those sound effects from Rise Of The Triad. That just makes everything even more weird.

Megashark Vs Giant Octopus and the sequel, Megashark Vs Crocosaurus.

Both of them are cheesy, bad, and poor excuses for movies. But... MY GOD ARE THEY FUN TO WATCH.

Every time one's on Sy Fy, I'll watch it. If only to see a giant CGI shark jump into the sky and take down a 747. Every time Megashark is on screen I sing a theme song I made for Megashark, which is pretty much just "fuck yeah, Megashark!"

Thanks to Ross Scott, I have heard of What's Up, Tiger Lilly? and it apparently is edited from a horrid Kung-Fu flick or somesuch.

I'm going to bite the bullet and say it: Twilight is mildly entertaining if you turn your brain off. Meyer seems better at crafting supporting characters than protagonists, and there are a few interesting concepts hidden in there somewhere. If all else fails you can always turn it into a Drinking Game.
