While watching a good movie with friends is nice way to spend time, there’s nothing like a bad movie night to really make some magical friendship moments. No one ever wants to kill the vibe with their talking while watching a good movie, but everyone will want to hear your vitriolic thoughts as the dumbest plot point happens out of nowhere. Just in case you’re hoping to set up your own bad movie night, here are 5 bad movies that are so bad but so good that you need to watch them. Now.
5. Mortal Kombat
When it first came out in 1995, Mortal Kombat was the shit. Looking back, you can tell just how bad the graphics are and how terribly melodramatic the characters are. But who cares? Scorpio had snake-like blades coming out from his hands. Badass.
4. Spice World
As a kid growing up with a Spice Girls poster on my wall, THIS IS A CLASSIC. I really didn’t understand why no one wanted to watch Spice World with me during my first year of university so I could use it as source material for a Spice Girls essay I was working on (I got an A in case you were wondering). While the scene where the girls meet the aliens randomly in the woods was awful, the shot of the bus jumping over the Tower Bridge is a cinematic masterpiece. Girl Power!
3. Any Twilight Movie
Every so often we’re graced with the type of bad acting that becomes an instant classic in the Hall of Black Comedies — up there with Tommy Wiseau’s The Room. This week we’ve come across two gunshot reactions that compete as the most epic acting fail ever.
Which do you think is worse? And PLEASE contribute your faves under the comment section below. We’d love to grab a box of tissue (for tears of laughter) and watch more.
CONTENDER 1: Raekwon in Coalition
*SPOILER ALERT American rapper Raekwon dies in 2004′s Coalition. The movie is a “realistic” depiction of how New York’s lucrative construction business is shaken by non-union labour. Too bad Raewon’s death scene looks more like he just remembered he forgot to turn the stove off last night.
