Any Van Damme movie is pretty rough, but obvious testosterone boost just in watching a movie like The Kickboxer.

Ever notice how in Van Damme movies the protagonist doesn't start winning until after he's been nearly beaten to death?

Looks like I am going to have to find a copy of Boggy Creek and get me adult beverages.

If you want a movie that's good with adult beverages, you've got to see "Tough Guys Don't Dance". It is the weirdest most convoluted movie that only gets better as the beverages are consumed. It's hard to find, but eBay usually has a copy or two.

LOL, that's what makes it so exciting. Ever notice that Van Damme has about three different 'kicks' that he does in EVERY film. God I love his spinning back kick. It amazes me every time I see it, which can be about 30 times per movie.

I Love Van Damme. He's went from a child hood hero to a source of pure comedy.

The old Wrestlemanias are worth their weight in gold, in my opinion. Not films but still so bad they're good. The interviews between fights are actually AMAZING. Macho Man Randy Savage, Hogan, Rick Flair especially are so funny in interviews.

And the fights? Some are boring to watch now. But they do have some comical value. You actually still get into some of the classic fights. The over acting is very funny. How devastating a move is the Hogan Leg Drop? The Million Dollar Dream ? LOL.

I love getting people in some devastating submissions - sleeper hold etc

Everyone likes Jean Claude Van Damme? Kickboxer was his best hands down. I also liked Universal Soldier, I was 9 or 10 at the time, when the 2nd was released. Since then, the idea of enhanced humans has always had a special place. :smile:

"Bloodsport" was pretty craptacular. Of course, I think Bolo Young could rip Van Damme in half like a wishbone, but that just adds to the cheezy appeal.

I like Van Damme, but Jeff Wincott would clean his clock on any day. Check out B Movies "Mission of Justice" or "Martial Outlaw" one day. Awesome.

"Plan 9 from Outer Space." Or anything directed by Edward D. Wood.

How about "Robot Monster." Gorillas with TV sets on their heads.

I actually saw "The Legend of Boggy Creek" in the theater. Awful. But it had some laughs.

Van Damme is across the board bad, can't watch it bad. Bad bad.

Usually blaxploitation from the '70s are good-bad.

I tried watching that Bobby Darin "Across the Sea" on TV, but it was horrible. What were they thinking.

I read that Nicolas Cage made a really enjoyable bad one, whose begins with a "Z." Anyone?

all nicolas cage is awful! Monosyllabic, mumbling, wooden incoherence.

Him and Keanu Reeves, nothing they've ever done has been any good

Anyone seen Point Break? Now that's a film that's so bad it's good. Best line in it's when someone says Patrick Swayze's character "Lives to get radical!"

Also the whole premise for the film is that Gary Busey checks out some guys' tan lines on their asses and can immediately tell they're surfers! What's that all about? Could he check out mine and tell I'm a student?

You must mean "Zandalee". I've never heard of it before.

Flash Gordon ... LOL and the quotes ...

Colonel of Battle Control Room: General Kala! Flash Gordon approaching!
Kala: What do you mean, "Flash Gordon approaching"?
Colonel of Battle Control Room: On a Hawkman rocket-cycle. Shall I inform His Majesty?
Kala: Imbecile! The Emperor would shoot you for interrupting his wedding with this news! Fire when Gordon's in range!
