UHF maybe. Funny film, I guess it didn't do well becaus it was released the summer the first Batman movie came out.

I can second Battle Beyond the Stars. Lots of decent actors in that...older actors, but still. Also art direction by James Cameron and music by James Horner helped.

Flash Gordan (1980) was a favorate growing up.

Spaced Invaders is another silly film.

Any Michael Bay movies. Yes I'm not ashamed that I loved Transformers movies and I look forward for the one in this summer.

After a really long time trying to come up with one, I finally did! I'm the type to watch better-rated movies unless absolutely necessary.... But anyways. Equilibrium (2002). It's rated 37% on RT and is accused of being a Matrix rip-off, but it was awesomely entertaining and I loved the fight scenes and it's Christian Bale...

But I mean, come on. A movie full of this sort of stuff can't help but be endlessly rewatchable

People sometimes don't realize that movies are meant to be watched for certain reasons; everything else that sucks but isn't the main focus doesn't matter. You watch Transformers for giant robot fighting action, not to judge its acting or plot.

Actual my only problem with Transformers was that the focus was too close to the robots so I couldn't see the fighting action.

^ I liked Transformers I a lot, but found no. II really utterly dull. Giant fighting robots shouldn't be boring, but now that I think about it the fighting was missing for a lot of the time, wasn't it? I just recall the main characters fleeing from the bad robots in the desert for, I dunno, half an hour?

And it had really unnecessary... weird moments.

Railgun, giant robot on a wheel, The Fallen. I dunno about you, but that's enough action for me to be satisfied.

Equilibrium is one of those movies that are hated by critics yet loved by fans... but yeah, it's a kick-ass movie.

Equilibrium! I didn't know critics didn't like it D= I can see why they would think it's a Matrix rip-off but there's more elements similar to 1984 and was certainly more realistic compared to the Matrix, tho the intended message was the same. If that is so, then they should criticize many other movies like V for Vendetta (73% on RT) because there are quite a lot that deal with the same theme.

Same here. I didn't expect high levels of love, but so much hate? Love that one anyway.

Some others for me would be Crank, Crank 2, Death Race and Death Race 2. B-movies, but you get exactly what you expect. And the 3 first have Statham. So I just love these despite what anyone says.

Ah yes, if theres one thing about the Transformers films is they were terribly edited, some of the wrost I've seen yet I still loved the films depsite their many flaws.
Big robot fights were great, just wish it was all put together better.

Another vote for Equilibrium, loved the action scenes and yea big fan of The Bale!

Prince or Persia: The Sands of Time - I liked it quite alot depsite my still thinking Jake Gyllenhaal doesn't quite fit the role.
I guess Gemma Arterton makes up for that

I guess the first couple of episodes of Star Wars, they are generally not liked right?
For me I love the whole Star Wars Saga, even episode I

Pretty sure I could name a few more later on.

That last vid is funny because when he says "You broke the law," you'd think he's talking about himself considering he always says "I am The Law!" In other words, he's saying the guy broke him! I wonder how many people would actually think of that as a pun

That being said, I only ever watched the movie once, and I remember enjoying it somewhat
