... In my mind a bad movie is one that isn't enjoyable to watch...


In my mind there is no consensus on what constitutes a bad movie or why anyone might enjoy such.  I find "bad" in many different films that may or may not increase my enjoyment of a film.  A film can be well made and "bad".  Conversely a badly made film can be good.  A film can be BAD for you.  Bad sometimes means enjoyment (like VELVET VAMPIRE) or just bad (MANOS: THE HANDS OF FATE).   Nonetheless, a "just bad" movie comes to mind and I am eager to see this long boring un-scary cheapo drek again: "IT'S ALIVE!" (1969).   

Or has my decade and a half of going native among you led me nowhere?

I can't see any point to watching a "bad" movie, and I don't think most of you are into truly bad movies. From what I've gleaned in fifteen years here is that what most of you define as a bad movie actually has certain enjoyable elements that make the film good. You look past acting, plot, production, effects, and you find other things to like. Maybe a better word than "bad" is "silly." In my mind a bad movie is one that isn't enjoyable to watch, and I've seen plenty of movies ripped on here, so it's not bad movies you like, it's ludicrously silly ones of the "laughing at, not with" variety. Or has my decade and a half of going native among you led me nowhere?

You trying to dissect bad movies is like describing a food you never tasted, or doing a book report on something you never read.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
