Championing Hated Movies Week 1 with Geek Juice

defendingmovies1l

Hey everyone, listen to me and the Geek Juice guys talk about movies that don’t deserve their bad reputation. For the first week we have Charlie’s list of Slither, Dylan Dog, The Ladykillers, and Double Whammy. Each week we’ll be covering a different person’s list.

Also, I’ve been furiously working on this week’s episode but I’m going to delay it until next week. So I’ll be putting up a Netflix video on Sunday. This week’s movie I’ve been working on for a while and I’ve just uncovered some stuff that is going to make this even better. It’s going to be a serious episode dedicated to a very misunderstood film. While I’m excited to get it out there, I want to work on it some more because I think it is going to be something special.

  • Nerdrover:

    Can we at least have a hint at this misunderstood film?

  • Lucas:

    It’s clearly ROTLD 3.

  • Melissa:

    The above comment says Blair Witch 2. If it is that, WTSF?! If not, my guess is [REC] 2.

  • mogens:

    i bet you can do tom and jerry the movie

  • MVandi:

    I thought Dylan Dog WAS quite good.

    • Lucas:

      Yes. It was. I watched it for the first time this morning, as well as Shaun of the Dead and Deadly Friend. I really liked all three, with Shaun by far being the best.

      • Cecil:

        Shaun is one of my favorite horror comedies. They nailed it.

        If you can, check out the episode of the show “Spaced” that inspired the movie. It’s the 3rd episode of season 1.

    • Cecil:

      It got terrible ratings which confused to hell out of me. I thought it was very entertaining.

      • Cecil, you know I respect ya (heck, you even got me to grudgenly admit there might be some merit to the D&D movie) but Dylan Dog was HORRIBLE.

        I mean Brandon Roth gets punched over and over for several hours and not so much as a scratch on his face? I’m sorry, was this Superman vs Werewolves?

        (no offense to anyone, that movie was just the first to make me mad in a long time)

        • Cecil:

          Its all good, I don’t expect everyone to agree on everything. I just chalked it up to being a supernatural movie. How many movies of the same type have the lead get beat to hell and yet look fine afterwards? (the answer: lots!)

          I really enjoyed the story and thought the characters were fun. I liked how his assistant is a zombie and how the “monsters” weren’t the bad guys. A nice change of pace…although I still say it would have made for a better TV series.

            Hmmm… you and I must run in different circles because I swear I’ve seen “man is the real monster” (and monsters are a-ok) so often I predicted it within the first 3rd of the movie. It certainly brings to mind things like true blood, xmen… etc. To me it didn’t feel like that much of a change of pace.

            1) Yes, but generally those movies have the character looking beat up DURING the fight. Hell in this movie, we see Dylan being punched, he flies in a somersault through the air to land on stone steps in a BALCONY and he STILL doesn’t show a single outward sign of injury. That’s not a regular human, that’s superman! (hmm… meta humor I guess)

            2) Now that would be an interesting study. Analyze the quality of action movies by injuries shown. Looks like I’ll have to watch all my fave action movies this weekend and do a tally. Then some bad action movies on labor day weekend. Darn Cecil, how dare you give me such an arduous chore. 😉

            (any nominations for the study?)

  • Jason:

    Dylan Dog definitely deserves a GoodBadFlicks review. How bout it Cecil?

  • john:

    “sequel to a film that was so huge it was a cultural phenomenon”

    I’ll guess Troll 2.

    • Cecil:

      While I looooooooooove Troll 2 I was referring to the original being a cultural phenomenon and even as big as Troll 2 is in the geek community, it is nowhere near the level of success that this other movie had.

  • john:

    Never heard of Dylan Dog or Double Whammy but I thought Slither was well praised.

    I can think of a bunch of movies that were either unjustly regarded as bad, overrated and underrated.

    • Cecil:

      Slither was well praised amongst the horror community. Eli Roth praised it saying how it would be long remembered after other movies were forgotten. (the other movies being the ones that beat it in the box office) It opened against Ice Age Meltdown and ATL so time has proven him right in my book.

      Well, we have like 6 more episodes of this coming so you’ll want to check em out. 🙂

  • Bryan:

    I’ve always liked Slither, Dylan Dog, and Ladykillers. I haven’t seen Double Whammy. I can’t wait to hear this

  • john:

    Just watched Blair Witch 2 that I recently bought the 2 disc DVD special edition cheap. The movie was OK although it had a pretty abrupt ending although I think they originally intended to be 2 sequels so probably the story from 2 was supposed to carry over into 3.

    Zach and Miri Make a Porno was a surprisingly good film as well as The Girl Next Door.

    • Cecil:

      There is more to Blair Witch 2 than meets the eye…

      Zach and Miri Make a Porno was terrific. Another hysterical Kevin Smith film. I’ve seen it like 5 times now. The Girl Next Door is in my top all time favorites. I adore that movie.

  • Jamie:

    I just listened to the podcast. Like you Cecil, I’ve never seen The Ladykillers and had kind of forgotten about its existence. Everything they were saying about it makes me want to watch it now. The same with Double Whammy, which I had never heard of before.
