6 Wonderfully Terrible Movies You Won't Believe Are Available to Stream

6 Wonderfully Terrible Movies You Won't Believe Are Available to Stream

Critics are always quick to assign a starred review to movies, and while I have a lot of respect for Roger Ebert, there's plenty of instances where I've disagreed with his (or the Rotten Tomato) takedown of any particular movie. Movie love is a personal opinion, and whether a film is good or bad ultimately comes down to preference.

And as a personal preference, I have a love for movies that are so bad they’re good, so for a second look at a couple of titles that may have slipped critical acclaim, suspend your disbelief, and get to watching—you might just be pleasantly surprised!

For any viewers accessing from overseas, whether you're traveling or living, it's easy to get around geo-blocking with a VPN and then you're ready to watch! Load up the queue, press play and get to enjoying these great titles that may not be everyone's favorite film, but definitely hit the spot for me. Happy viewing! 

Working Girl

1.     Working Girl (1988)

Melanie Griffith is wonderfully naive in this 1980s power girl flick, not to mention Sigourney Weaver's boss lady power trip, and that's what makes this comedy flick so irresistible despite its suits and shoulder pads. Throw in a prime time Harrison Ford into the mix and you've got the perfect set-up for a retro fix that does more good than bad. Where this film really fails is in its evil mastermind portrayal of Weaver's character; the ice queen boss stereotype feels even more antiquated on a second watch than ever. However, with a classic comedy ending, this movie doesn't fall flat and deserves a second (or third) watch, especially just to watch the breakout scene and one more listen to "Let The River Run" by Carly Simon.

2015 SMABFA Governor's Breakfast

2015 SMABFA Governor's Breakfast

Reporting from the Stinker Madness Achievement in Bad Film-making Awards Governor's Breakfast, held annually the Thursday prior to the Official Awards broadcast. This annual event, an adjunct to the auspicious and globally recognized SMABFAs, was staged this year at the prestigious 2.5 Star Riverside Hotel by the luxurious Boise River.

The black-tie acceptable event is held to recognize a wide variety of cinematic accomplishments from the previous year. Various Scientific & Technical Achievement awards were handed out in a range of disciplines, determined by the SMABFA Board of Regentsories inside the nearly filled-to-capacity event space/buffet room.

The SMABFA Awards present honors to the best and worst in crummy films each year with highest regards to the prestigious "Best Bad Movie" where top honors are given to the film that entertains while being incredibly stupid. Others are awarded to Worst Bad Actor for doing such a terrible job that throwing remotes through TVs is common behavior.

While these awards didn't quite make it into the official SMABFA show, they are no less important. These awards are for the rest of those in film that deserve a little damn credit for what they did (or didn't do) in 2015. Congrats to the winners and condolences to the everyone.

Top 10 Bad Movie Staples We All Love

Top 10 Bad Movie Staples We All Love

Bad movies have plenty of cliches to discuss. Most involve poor film-making elements such as bad cuts, unclear action sequences, terrible acting or time and space having no meaning. Others involve stereotypes about genders or races. Those are no fun and need to stop so just ignore all those. We're here only to talk about the cliches in bad movies that we love and are always invited to the bad movie party. These are the bad movie staples that make us jump up in excitement or get rolling on the floor in laughter.

Our list was compiled after painstakingly analyzing thousands of bad movies over a span of 36 years. Please let us know your favorites by leaving a comment below. To hear us talk about our most beloved bad, cult and obscure movies, make sure to subscribe to Stinker Madness using your favorite podcasting platform! Enjoy!

10. Sobriety superpowers

jeff goldblum slamming liquor 686x291Goldblum gets blitzed because the world is going to end, but seconds later writes a computer virus for an alien computer system in Independence Day.

Sometimes you gotta get good n' liquored up in a film. Its usually when all the chips are down and one of the main characters has given up or while partying in Brazil moments before zombies attack or at bachelor party before a massive earthquake hits. But then, by using the power to instantly sober up, you're able to draw up plans to defeat the bad guys or run without falling into walls or execute perfect martial arts moves. Just mind the puke on your shirt. Speaking of shirts.....

Top Actors of 2014 that Started in Bad Movies

Our list compiles the highest paid actors from 2014 (according to Forbes.com) and those that really got their acting start staring in budget, cult, and/or bad movies. 

Dwyane Johnson

Dwayne Johnson - $52 Million in 2014

Saying that Dwayne got his acting start in bad movies is a little bit of cheating. We know that he got his acting start in the WWE as The Rock. But he still started his film acting career by staring in such bad movies with the first being The Mummy Returns in 2001 as the Scorpion King. He is still a main-stay in our favorite bad movies and we can't wait to see more of him in the future.

Top Stinkers:

  • The Mummy Returns (2001)
  • The Scorpion King (2002)
  • Doom (2005)
  • Tooth Fairy (2010)
  • Fast 5
  • G.I. Joe: Retaliation
  • Fast & Furious 6
  • Hercules

001TMR The Rock 013107466232-films2 300967bg2lgi4suozw8dmtakrnogi-joe-retaliationimage40

Leonardo DiCaprio

Leonardo DiCaprio - $39 Million in 2014

Nominated for 4 Academy Awards and winning 2 Golden Globes for his performances in The Wolf of Wall Street and The Aviator, many consider DiCaprio to be a "good movie" staple. However his career didn't start out that way. His first film role was in Critters 3 and then followed that up in Poison Ivy, while then going "all retard" in What's Eating Gilbert Grape (which is a fine film) he starred as Kid in The Quick and the Dead (directed by Stinker Hall of Famer, Sam Raimi).

Top 7 Biggest Reasons Why Bad Movies Are Such a Big Deal

Top 7 Biggest Reasons Why Bad Movies Are Such a Big Deal

There are so many avenues for a bad movie fan to explore today. From podcasts, to blogs, to theater screenings, to online rentals bad movies are becoming big business. But what are the reasons for such a following of something that isn't good. There's no clubs for bad music (unless you count Top 40), bad art (unless you count The Met), bad books (unless you count fans of Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey) but there is for bad movies. We love to celebrate them. But why are they so popular?

Here's why we believe bad movies are such a big deal:

The Official Streaming Movies Do's and Don'ts (Netflix and Amazon Prime)

The Official Streaming Movies Do's and Don'ts (Netflix and Amazon Prime)

Welcome to the future and let's face it, we don't watch movies on DVD, Blu-Ray, on TV or even in the theater that much anymore. Because we live in the future we have access to an unprecedented amount of films that we have seen, are familiar with and, for the most part, never heard of. A lot of us are left with choosing movies online solely based off the cover art. We call this "rolling the dice". Well we've done our best to take the guess work out of it for you and present each week in our 0.5 (prelude) episodes of our Stinker Madness podcast the films we've watched on Netflix, Amazon Prime, Crackle, and YouTube during the week. If we like it we give it a Do, if not we give it a Don't. If we are indifferent - then you're on your own.

Check out our ongoing list here

Streaming Do's and Don'ts

Movie NameSummaryIMDBNetflixAmazonJustinJackieSamTotal

The Devil's 8

A federal agent rounds up eight convicts to help fight a vicious moonshine gang.

Heavily recommended to us by a good source, but a disappointment to us. Boring, confusing, and weird as hell. But the theme song at the end that explains the plot is pretty awesome. A perfect RiffTrax option.

IMDB Page Watch Now Devil's Eight No No No 0/3
 

Invasion of the Bee Girls

A powerful cosmic force is turning Earth women into queen bees who kill men by wearing them out sexually.

Totally weird and a complete cut & paste of 70's b-movies. William Smith is awesome. There's tons of boobs. And it's REALLY silly. And yes they are made of bees.

Legion of Iron

Legion of Iron

So imagine you're sitting at make-out hill, getting a little R-n-R and then suddenly some guys (sorta dressed as cops) swoop down and steal you away to an underground facility where you must gladiatorial fight to the death for your right to protect your girlfriends virginity.

Well that's the entire plot for this little known 1990 stinker brought to us from Epic Productions. IMDB only has a total of 64 users having ever viewed it which makes it too rare to be on the Bottom 100, not that it should be.

Unlike Barbarian Queen, that was gratuitously chock full o' shirtless girls, this movies surprising achievement is a stark lack of nudity. I think their may be a brief man-ass, but its amazingly bare (phrasing) considering its very adult (and sometimes uncomfortable) content material. There is some pretty rough rape scenes and some very Stockholm Syndrome undertones with Alison (Camille Carrigan) that were very bold for the b-movie genre, which usually has very light-hearted subject matter.... as far as character development anyways.  In fact, if it wasn't for the silly plot idea, the screenplay might have been respected at the time.

I will warn the viewer this, stick with this movie.  3/4 of this film is pretty mediocre and has a few scenes where I had a hard time paying attention. The plight of poor old kidnapped Billy (Kevin T. Walsh (I assume the T stands for Top Notch)), was pretty uninteresting especially after his sole, overt motivation to win in battle (protect his girly's chaste underwears) is a moot point. A good chunk of this film is Billy being psychologically toyed with by the evil Queen Diana (Erika Nunn) to join with her as her gentleman-servant. Erika Nunn is easily the worst part of this film, as her character sucks and she is impossibly ugly. I usually try to avoid trashing people's looks but because she is meant to be a femme-fatale, who wears revealing "future" attire and strange headwear, that I believe is meant to make the viewer think, "Hey Billy doesn't have it so bad", I think she's fair game. When she was on camera, I spent most of it averting me eyes.  Yikes.

So Billy (who really is a wanker) befriends Lyle Wagner (Reggie De Morton) who is the facilities main trainer. Why, I'm not sure because Lyle's fighting style appears to be circle your opponent and give him a mean face and then wait for him to hit your sword; just like Barbarian Queen strangely. But either way Billy has a training montage, ala Gymkata and so he is ready to fight.

Barbarian Queen

Barbarian Queen

Let me break this down to you in one word - boobs.  So many boobs.  Oh god there's so many.  

Sounds great right?

Well......not really. It actually makes for just ok. But I'll get into that.

So the movie revolves around this group of women (in some unknown location and in some unknown time) that have their village and booties plundered but some guys in black, all on the day of the Amethea's (Lana Clarkson) wedding day to Argan (Frank Zagarino). Bummer. So this small band of women (only 2 of them actually do anything; Taramis only ever cares about food) set out to rescue Argan and get revenge.

What is a Stinker?

What is a Stinker?

There are LOTs and LOTs of lists on the Internet about bad movies and which are the best.  But really Stinker Madness isn't about "bad movies". We're about Stinkers.

For years, I've had trouble defining what exactly a "Stinker" is. Well with starting this project, I think I've figured it out.

 

stink·er 

noun\ˈstiŋ-kər\

: a feature-film that has failed miserably at least in one area of its production and reception but must also succeed in at least one area of its production and reception.
