    Cool! I had no idea what he was up to these days. 90 and still writing, WOW! Good for him! Thanks for sharing that story.

    I respect the hell outta him for doing exactly what he wanted to. So rare.

    What! In! The! FUKK!?

    Seen it?

    Simultaneously the worst and best film I've ever seen. Incredibly self indulgent. It fukkin' sucks ass (literally someone takes a sh!t on screen and they light it on fire and "smoke" it to get high) but is EPIC in its "THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT I WANTED TO DO!" ness by Jodorowsky.

    The ending... holy sh!t... this dude was high as fukk when he wrote/directed this. AND IT FUKKIN GOT MADE!

    Truly the best bad movies are really obsurce. Red Letter Media guys have a whole web series about them.

    And this is one of those endings... I love love these movies. During Halloween time I pray to find some of these amazing movies.

    Like BIRDEMIC. It's just so much fun to watch with friends.

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoJ32JchVno (this is just amazing ending to random bad movie).

    Haven't seen it, but listened to HDTGM podcast about it... that's what I'm looking for.

    The first 4 movies are GREAT movies. These are not bad movie. They are "national treasures!"

    I didn't see The Holiday.

    Red Dawn -- this is even more relevant today. So good they make a reboot.

    Independence Day -- so excited for this movie they moved it up to July 2nd on release date... so great in theaters... first disaster movie of current era...

    NT -- Cage meets a cool thriller action movie. Amazing!!!

    Karate Kid 2 -- Live or Die? HONK. Wrong! maybe best sequel of all time!!!!! I love love love this movie. Best part is how Danny L gets a new girlfriend 24 hours after landing.

    I did violate my own rule by picking a sequel to a huge franchise, so F me too!

    If I started my other thread MOVIES PEOPLE LOVE BUT YOU DON'T LOVE than you can use John Wick. I still think it's the dumbest title ever and a bad name for a tough guy. But that's me!

    I'm sorry Gucci, but you're going to the penalty box. 2 minutes for picking a popular movie!
    Ha! Fair enough...

    Love the franchise, tho!

    I love to watch the lesser known comedic works of Paul Rudd. I don't see his tentpole movies, but I see the strange stuff he did with his buddies. Like IDEAL HOME (2018) w/ Steve Coogan about a bickering gay couple who end up with a kid. Also WANDERLUST (2012) , OUR IDIOT BROTHER (2011), DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS (2010), ROLE MODELS (2008) and THE CHATEAU (2001).

    Of those, OUR IDIOT BROTHER is probably my favorite, after IDEAL HOME.

    A couple more if I may...don't fully love them, but they can have gravitational pull to make me watch


    ShowgirlsAttack of the 50 ft Cheerleader (2012) Actually quite well put together for what it is.

    The Eiger Sanction (1975) Clint Eastwood works for a bloodless nut case. Not Clint's best work, but some of the scenes are well assembled.

    Never Say Never (1983) Bond attempted on a budget. Don't love it, but I can watch it somehow.
