  • How Would the Duck be a hint of what movie you were going to review?

  • Sean:

    Howard the Duck!

  • Steve:

    “trapped in a world he never made……”

  • Egil:

    the Howard The Duck movie is freaking awesome

  • demonknight:

    Just picked this, along with Deep Blue Sea, The Happening, and Shark Night up at the library as part of my Good Bad Flicks Month. So far, I have seen Split Second, Cyclone, half of Harley Davidson (finishing tonight), and The Kiss. Got The Guyver coming from Netflix tomorrow.

    • Cecil:

      Awesome. You are in for some greatness.

      • demonknight:

        Yep. Just finished Shark Night. How the fuck does that have a 3.6 on IMDb while Transformers has a 6.1? Too many people wanted it to be a remake of Piranha 3D… Just read the user reviews.

        Finishing Harley and Marlboro after What the Fuck tonight. Deep Blue Sea tomorrow morning. May try to fit in Happening as well. Guyver Monday/Tuesday night. Dr. Giggles coming from Netflix Tuesday, watching Wednesday. Just ordered Fear (in a three pack with Raising Cain and something else), Mortal Kombat 1&2 (only watching the first), Spice World, and Priest from the library. YouTube will help out as well (Gymkata, Ninja 3, The Hidden, etc.).

        As a side note, a few months back my local Fox channel’s morning anchor made a reference to Gymkata and went off about how awesome it was and how the co-anchors and weather guy should all see it. That made me laugh.

        • jack:

          Watch the 2nd Mortal Kombat it is a great so bad its good film.

        • Cecil:

          Shark Night is a blast, I’m glad to see I’m not the only one confused by all the hate. (and there is tons of hate!)

          Wow a Gymkata reference on Fox? Glorious. I’m still hoping one day the Rifftrax guys to that one, since they used to reference it all the time on MST3K.

  • demonknight:

    Cecil! You are on the Scream Factory Facebook page! Your poster video, that is!

  • I’m so excited about the next episode you bring out next week. 🙂

  • jack:

    Well at least Howard the Duck is no longer the most reviled character that George Lucas brought to screen. 🙂

    Actually out of all the characters in the Phantom Menace Yar Yar Binks is the only one that had any personality who really wasn’t that bad.

  • mogens:

    will you review the phantom movie?

  • demonknight:

    So. I finished Howard. The first half was great, but the rest was pretty bad. Meh. You know who would make a good Howard the Duck movie? James Gunn. Just imagine it… Hard R, Slither effects, Troma humor. It would be awesome. Not to mention, he already has an in with Marvel through Guardians of the Galaxy…

  • mogens:

    WELL CECIL?

  • Bryan:

    The Ducktales Movie? Nah, just kidding, I know what it is.

  • mogens:

    why not cecil?

    • demonknight:

      He doesn’t like everything. Maybe The Phantom hit him in a bad way, like Batman & Robin or the Tom and Jerry movie.

      • Marco:

        And like Battlefield Earth…. :(.

        I’m serious. It’s always a must see for me when it’s on tv late at night. It’s very similar to The Room. High ambitions, main actors who play their heart out (and giving an awesome terrible performance) and a non-sense story. I can see why he don’t want to even see (or see it again) and why it of course can’t stand in the company of his other good bad flicks. I don’t want to open Pandoras shark formed box….but if the fun bad moneygrap of Sharknado got a show, this one should at least be a podcast topic; like terrible movies you refuse to watch but have to…for the podcast….make a better title damn you ;).

        • demonknight:

          Hadley titles those. And so did Brad… Way back when.

          • Marco:

            Mmmm yes. I know they did it on the Projection Booth, but that one was a more serious take on filmmaking. I’m not sure I heard the others except in short doses with their worst of XXX or damning hated movies. I thought maybe there was something missing in case of “Movies you previously refused to see and turned out *your opinion*”. Sorry can’t describe it better ;P. Like I hate Juno just on all the media stuff I saw without actualy seeing it. I don’t want to see it, I avoid to see it. Maybe I should see it!?

          • Cecil:

            Never ever watch Juno. Ever.

        • Cecil:

          Battlefield Earth has its funny moments but overall, it is just dull and stupid. If it kept up the level of hilarity, I could do it like The Wicker Man. However as it stands, it wouldn’t be much more than a rehash of what others have already said.

      • Cecil:

        I didn’t hate the Phantom I just don’t feel strongly enough about it to give it an episode.

  • mogens:

    mayby you have right i have watch nostalgia criticks review of it and hee just complaint about his purble custume

  • James:

    When I first encountered this site it was basically a fluke when I was looking up reviews for ‘The Wicker Man’. I totally lost my shit by the end of it I just couldn’t get enough of the reviews. It was only after watching about twenty or so of the films I realised (yes I know this makes me mentally retarded) that he wasn’t bagging these films so much as he was actually praising them whilst having a light jab at them – with the only exception (with no redeeming features whatsoever) being Catwoman and, I suppose (whimper) The Wicker Man. Thus I’ve accepted we’ll never see reviews of Transformers, Phantom Menace or Battlefield Earth because as much as I’d love to see those movies torn to fucking shreds that’s not what goodbadflicks is about. I think you’ve taken what is potentially a very difficult-to-sell idea and made it potentially VERY bankable by being able to actually properly justify or at least rationalise you’re fondness for these films. And seriously there is stuff about these films that makes me sit back and go “How the fuck does he find out this stuff?”. And like I said, as much as I’d love to see Cecil’s style of review being applied to B.E, T.P.M etc., I don’t think its going to happen because the whole point of this site (and correct me if I’m wrong) is looking at movies from a perspective that is slightly left of the norm.

    At least with Wicker Man you did give it a (sort of) redeemable mention by saying you’d rather watch it over Arthur, Psycho (the remake) or Hairspray.

    • Cecil:

      You are most certainly correct. The whole theme is taking underrated or “bad” movies and showcasing the good aspects of them, as well as explaining why they are entertaining or not deserving of their negative reputation. While most movies I cover are enjoyable for (whatever reason I give in the videos) movies like The Wicker Man remake, Catwoman, Birdemic, Troll 2, and so are are enjoyable because they fall into the “so bad they are good” file. They are spectacular failures that are overwhelmingly enjoyable to view if you like that sort of thing. Growing up with Mystery Science Theater, movies like these are wonderful.

      However, I don’t focus on those too often because I like to talk about the underdogs. The movies that either are ignored or get lumped into the “oh I heard that sucked so it must suck.” I give them a voice in the positive, as well as a rational explanation as to why they shouldn’t be so disliked. (instead of screaming about how much they suck, which there is nothing wrong with if that’s what you want to do, but there already are a plethora of people who do this…also, its just not my style) I like to goof on the movies the I cover and blast the vacuous hundred million dollar crap fests that have zero going on in the brains department.

      I don’t plan on doing something like Battlefield Earth unless I have a valid reason to do so. Transformers I will never do. I may cover the Star Wars prequels at some point but given how well Red Letter Media covered them, is there really much more to be said?
