  • Tell us about a movie you'd totally hate if not for one scene or character (maybe both) that gets your attention. For me, it's "Con Air." I hate that movie with a passion, but Steve Buscemi's character, Garland Greene, is the reason I've seen it many times over the years.

    "One girl... I drove through three states wearing her head as a hat."

    Luckily, YouTube gives me access to the best scenes without having to endure too much of Nicolas "Coppola" Cage and that ridiculous accent he puts on. Hey, don't hate on me if you're a Nick Cage fan. We all have our shortcomings. d:

    • Spoilers ahead.

      So, I hated the 2012 Dark Shadows movie for being a masturbatory mangling of the source material, but I appreciated the inclusion of Laura Collins at the very end.  It was something they didn't have to do, but the throwback was welcome.

    • The Perfection from 2018. I thought the first half or so was okay but the last act completely disintegrates into mindless torture-porn and almost completely spoiled the movie for me.

      Looking back, the only saving grace I can really remember is the scene where one of the two leading characters chops her arm off because she has bugs under her skin. It turns out that the bugs were a hallucination, which might sound obvious in hindsight, but previous scenes establish there is a mysterious illness/affliction going around that very little is known about, so naturally, you would assume that the bugs had something to do with that. Very intense and clever moment in the movie, it's a shame the finale was so pointlessly gory.

      Oh boy, if you don't like mindless torture porn then stay far away from Terrifier.

    • Honestly don't have a lot of guilty pleasure movies in horror. I either dislike them or love them.

      Oh, well there was this Pyramid horror flick I saw a few months ago...it was shlock right from the start, but the Anubis creature that showed up midway through was cool. Shame the whole thing was filled with garbage writing, poor acting and unscary minor monsters.

    • Don't you say a wrong word about Nicholas cage. It doesn't matter if he's playing a troubled detective with a crippling addiction or a man who's skull turns to fire so he can beat up muggers and demons, Nic Cage brings it all. 10000%, no quips or qualms. The man is a kinetic force of nature. You might even say he's something of a...

      On a more serious note: this is hard to answer but I think I can say this of most shitty adaptations. The Doom movie is trash but I still watch it now and again because it adapts my favourite game. Conan with Jason Mamoa is the same. Sometimes I'll watch a movie just to see how they adapted something and even if I dislike it, I'll still enjoy the novelty of seeing previously unadapted characters/scenes/etc. come to life on the big screen. I watched the entire of The Junji Ito Collection for just that reason and oh boy, that was not a good adaptation.
