Guess the relationship between us and the film industry is toxic enough that we often aid a really undeserving movie make it to the list of superhits. At least one such trash and highly criticized movie is always on the year-end box office charts. Either because of our favorite star or because of our favorite franchise. Despite the absurd plot, graphics, or even acting, we come out like “Ahh am so excited for the next part.”
However, one cannot disagree that it indeed takes a lot of effort to make something this shitty but likable. Many times we are thrilled looking at those stupid youtube videos of car accidents or injuries. This possibly can be the reason why such movies are enticing. Although THANKS, for we wouldn’t have been able to put up this list including legit “trash movies which deserve no fame at all” if it wasn’t for you guys watching it and making it famous.
There’s no better setting for a film than a rogues gallery unleashed on the globe. Con Air is the most self-aware rogue of all the galleries, with the simplest elevator pitch in contemporary film history: A good-hearted, unfairly condemned Nicolas Cage must face an aircraft full of criminals. It’s one of the best instances of a trash film that completely outperforms its own expectations. The screenplay is nasty, the acting is terrible (particularly Cage’s hair), and it’s dripping with cheese, yet it’s a case of numerous wrongs somehow becoming a right.
This Christmas rom-com is delightfully entertaining, successfully evocative, and full of old-world charm. It’s still trash, and that’s primarily due to Cameron Diaz, who is really bad in it and only gets away with it because Jude Law is extra contagious and constantly looks like he’s walked out of a Best Dressed Man Awards event. Even when he’s dressed up as Mr. Napkin Head.
It’s a typical summer movie, with no specific agenda other than to entertain. Any film that reaches Roger Ebert‘s list of most despised films is worth watching. The idea of sending some oil drillers to space instead of astronauts is ridiculous. Many events in the film should not have occurred, and the film is scientifically flawed. Unfortunately, the acting is generally weak, and the most solid talent is forced to deal with truly ridiculous stuff.
It is a blatantly offensive film. The narrative revolves around one straight man’s attempt to change a lesbian into a straight woman, which is hurtful to the LGBT community. It’s upsetting to those with disabilities that a mentally impaired figure is often used for cheap laughs. Gigli provided the world a whole two hours of ogling at hot renowned people who were dating, and it did so without making even the tiniest effort to provide anything else of substance.
Because of its incredible effectiveness in deceiving its audience, Love Actually has become a classic. Not only is it set during Christmas, but it also features a fantastic cast, typically heartwarming sentiments, and an infectious self-assurance that’s difficult to ignore. Unfortunately, if you watch Love Actually closely enough, you’ll see that everyone except Emma Thompson is a horrible person, and most of the relationships are built on bad judgments or come at a great cost.
