Dune is the perfect blend of cheesiness and grandeur.

Crossroads. The 1986 Ralph Macchio movie, not the later Britney Spears movie with the same name... please. A cheesy flick about searching for Robert Johnson's lost song. It's good-bad, but what's not to like. Steve Vai plays the devil's prodigy and even Harry Carey, Jr. has a bit part. Ry Cooder produced the music.

Tom Yum Goong! In this country, "The Protector."

Actually that may not qualify because I'm not sure it's really a bad movie. Low budget, yes.

If you manage to find it, the cameo by Jackie Chan is really one of his body doubles.

Howard the Duck. Sure, it's pure schlock, but I liked the original comic book so much, I couldn't help but like the movie at least a bit.

Tremors is a hoot. Reba McIntyre is hot.

I, too, liked Howard the Duck a lot. Guy in a rubber duck suit? How do you go wrong with that?

I call no qualify. Tremors isn't a bad movie. Howard qualifies, Tremors doesn't, although I think you can make a good case for the sequels. Which I liked anyway.

I guess I was just going by the premise: Man-eating underground slugs that can hear people walking around and zero in on them.

Guy in a rubber duck suit v. Guy in a rubber slug suit. Not that's a hit.

I don't understand why so many of you are listing good movies.

I have to admit it sure sounds like a bad movie.

Highlander. Queen being taken as serious music, every film cliché from the hubcap rolling across the scene after a car explodes to the poorly painted lightning strikes during the "quickening." Plus, how could you beat Sean Connery as a 200-year-old Egyptian/Spanish warrior with a lisp?

Unless of course he's playing a dragon....
