Eric’s Bad Movies needs suggestions!

SHARE

It is time once again to solicit suggestions for Eric’s Bad Movies! This is a weekly column that I write for Film.com, in case you didn’t know, and I rely upon you, the readers, to point me in the direction of terrible movies that deserve mockery. Truly, I do! A sizable chunk of the 144 movies I’ve covered so far were ones I hadn’t heard of or never would have thought of on my own.

Basically, here’s what I’m looking for in a Bad Movie:

– The more well-known it is, the better. I’m avoiding straight-to-video releases and TV movies. Movies that played in theaters and were backed by Hollywood studios and had stars in them are ideal.

– Comedies are extremely hard to make fun of because they already don’t take themselves seriously, so I tend to avoid those. Focus on action movies, dramas, and the like.

– It needs to be something whose badness is generally agreed upon, as opposed to something that YOU happen to hate but that is otherwise fairly well regarded. Remember, I need to think it’s bad, too. Don’t waste my time with movies that I think are OK!

– I don’t want to do movies that I reviewed in the normal movie-critic fashion when they came out in theaters. I’ve been reviewing movies since 1999, so in general, you can skip anything released since then.

After the jump, the list of what I’ve covered so far. Then it’s up to you to post suggestions in the comments. Thanks!

(If you’ve suggested a film in the past and I haven’t used it, you don’t need to suggest it again, I promise. Either I’ve considered it and rejected it, or it’s on my to-do list.)
