The second one is better than the first, but it's still pretty bad.

The second AvP movie is pretty bad, but it partially makes up for it by being insanely violent.

I liked the first. I thought it was a story of cross cultural understanding. The moment where the Predators accepted a human (outside of Danny Glover) as an equal hunting partner brought tears to my eyes.

It's based on a comic, I really enjoyed the movie. It was a mix between The Matrix and Fight Club.

Let me tell you about a bad movie:

Some movies are bad and that's just the end of it (e.g. Battlefiled Earth).
Some movies are bad and the director heads into a flame war with the Internet (e.g. Boll)
Some movies are so bad they allegedly are entertaining and have a fan base. (e.g. Troma)
but there is one movie so utterly rotten, that it spawned a cult of artsy snobs declaring it a high work of art, the Mona Lisa of movies.

Naturally, you the reader, a member of the dis-arted peasant masses, would not know about such a "good" movie. Without further ado, I suggest you watch BEGOTTEN (1990) and then try to tell me again that any movie in this thread was bad.

I have seen premieres of feature movies that were so bad the audience started revolt and shout at the director while the movie was still running until the screening room descended into chaos. I have seen feature presentations so bad, they were recut into 10 minute short movies and still buried. I have seen premieres of Boll movies before he did video game licenses and see him defend them (in relation to the rest he did not seem half bad really). I have seen alleged movies for children where people stir a 20ft. pot of mush for 120 minutes while the audience is tripping on acid. Nothing of that stands up to Begotten.

If you need something to wipe your brain afterwards, I have found that watching "The Nine Lives of Thomas Katz" actually works, due to the unique topic of that movie.

Did this ever get a major release? My personal definition of a bad movie involves a major theater release to expose the poor unsuspecting movie masses to its revolting awfulness. What good is a plague if it never spreads?

It looks like an art house movie. Which almost by definition is bad. Actually, I think it looks like something I'm going to play in the background of my next Halloween party.

Parts of it ran in the background of Marilyn Manson videos, which was as mainstream as it got for Begotten. You can buy a DVD, which is a rare collector's item setting you back $150. Beyond that, there is only the internet. Should you ever run that as a video on your Halloween party for all your guests, then you are the toughest fucker known to man. Whoever of your friends is not bleeding insane, will never speak to you again 10 minutes into the movie. Should there be children present, they will be scarred for life.

I ran The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920) three years ago, Nosferatu (1922) two years ago and Monsters Crash the Pajama Party (1965) last year. I like vintage black and white movies running in the background in the darkened living room of the Halloween parties. I never have the sound on so silent movies have served me well. BEGOTTEN doesn't appear to need sound to be creepy.

just you wait what they call your house after they see someone disemboweling himself for 10 minutes to give birth to a woman masturbating for a while before giving birth to a man who is later eaten alive. And no, those are not quick cuts, those are dragged out 10 minute sequences each. Just in case you were wondering why part 2/7 was missing from youtube.

But while Begotten might provide some shock value there, it really just remains terrible. This is super-pretentiousness gone horribly wrong.

One might say that some movies get it right in their pretentiousness. Dorian Gray comes to mind, Oliver Stone also usually delivers when he openly makes a project in which he says "I am going to make a comment on media and violence", or some war.

To get things horribly right I think you should be pretentious enough to make a movie about a catastrophe you see coming and then have it really happen after some time.

Another way to interpret pretentiousness gone horribly right is Uwe Boll. Now follow my train of thought for a second. Boll used to be yet another German director getting his movies funded by the German Board for Movie Subsidies. But in 1992 he got incredibly cocky and ultra-pretentious by claiming that famous German politician Uwe Barschel did not commit suicide but was in fact killed by spies. Back then he got hated to hell and back by German authorities for that and the movie subsidiary board was basically off limits from then on. Today we of course know that Boll's version is infinitely closer to the truth than the official suicide version. His pretentiousness proved to be right. But at the same time it forced him to find new methods to finance his films, which is why he moved to Canada and started promoting his finance scheme with the tax-refund safety net courtesy of the German government. We all know how that ended.

But even back in 2000, when he was at German film festivals and got asked why he financed abroad instead of taking from the subsidiary pool, he basically admitted that he was persona non grata there. There you have it: horribly right.

I usually enjoy bad movies for how truly horrible they are MSTK3 style. For whatever reason, I could not find anything enjoyable about this mess of a movie. It is the only movie that I seriously contemplated leaving the theater in the middle of the viewing.

Kung Pow was... interesting. The cow fight was a little unfunny, but it certainly had moments.

Yeah the cow fight and the entire ending were real bad, but that movie has some of the best lowest common denominator humor of all time.

I found it was funnier to talk about the movie than actually watching the movie itself, especially the scenes with Betty.

Kung Pow is fucking genius. The "ninja vanish" gag where this tiny cloud of smoke hovers around the guys knees is enough to make this movie awesome, but you got a shit ton of other great gags like working out on the bow flex or any scene with the "wise master" type dude.

When I first saw Kung Pow (true story, I actually saw it in the theater, with 2 close friends on my 21st birthday) I was laughing so hard I nearly peed myself. Its potency has waned over the years, but there are definitely still parts of that movie that crack me up. The ninja smoke is one of them. The major other one is the close up view of the gopher's face when he's getting spun around. Something about the image of that with the squeal makes me laugh every time I see it.

I get why some people might find the movie funny but fucking genius is totally out of the question even if you are exaggerating for effect.
