So bad it's good.
 
What films have you seen that could be put in the 'so bad they're good' category.
I saw one the other day. 'Age of Dinosaurs.' So bad it wasn't just good, it was frigging awesome.

("...can't say that I've seen any film either good or bad of late, but I did the first series of "dr who" in black and white recently, and although the special effects were laughable by today's standards, at least the plot pulled me on to the last episode there while the whole experience was most nostalgic of my childhood days too..." mentioned the goblin happy to see Leila returned, then adding "...summer over, guess we're moving into our writing season now aren't we, yes funny how the wet together with the cold and early darkness is synonymous of the ghost season in me, "just my pen to the rescue" perhaps, nope for like dr who whose monsters return in some later series, so do my monsters too then...")

I'll always have a soft spot for the old Dr Who - it was pretty much my favourite programme as a kid. Out of curiosity I tried watching the new one and didn't like it.. They changed the spirit of it too much. Maybe that's just the nostalgia talking but even so ...

I've been thinking about this and I've come up empty.

I totally get the concept and it seems like something would come to mind -- but recently, I've just been annoyed by the bad films I've seen.

Maybe I just need to dig a little deeper...

BTW -- Have you heard of something called Mystery Science Theater 3000?

It's brilliant. The whole idea of the show is that there is a running and hilarious commentary on horrible movies.

They take old, bad movies and add continuous running narration and dialog loaded with very clever pop culture, societal and literary references.

The premise is too hard to explain -- but if you're interested in "so bad it's good," this just may be your thing.
