Post Find positives in the worst movies you've seen
I'm sure we all hate movies that make us go angry with rage but aren't there good moments or things in such movies? I say yes and since I saw a similar topic elsewhere, I think it could work here. Now then, get praising.

As for me:

Dirty Love - The magician escaping a jail lineup by shouting abracadabra was cute.

Fireproof - "She said I wasn't listening or something. I don't know, I wasn't paying attention." It's a cliched stock line but it made me laugh and I needed laughter. Plus, I gave you all an infamous review that you like and by you I mean major.

Xanadu - music was good

Son of the Mask - Jamie Kennedy wasn't the worst thing in the movie.

Transformers 2- John Tuturro

September Dawn- Jon Voight's acting. In a word: bad.

There is one glaringly obvious positive in the worst movies I've ever seen: they ended.

Titanic-First rate special effects
Saved!-Mandy Moore as a religious nutjob was interesting, even if she was horribly miscast
All About Steve-Bullock was still somewhat likeable despite the immense stupidity of the film
Ugly Truth-Heigl was watchable enough

The Spirit- Has first rate eye candy. Just too bad the movie was ridiculously awful and wasted tons of actors & actresses.

Final Destination 2- The opening sequence on the highway where everything wrecks is beautiful. The rest of the movie is anything but though.

Don't get him started. XD

I fucking hated Antonioni's La Notte, but to be fair to the film, it's well acted and well shot to a certain degree. Otherwise, it's pretentious, boring garbage.

Twilight....had to sit through it with my girlfriend.

Terrible movie, but Kristen Stewart is easy on the eyes.

You better believe it, i don't give a rat's ass how many awards it won, I thought it was an unmitigated shitfest except for the FX, i'd honestly rather watch every single film on IMDB's bottom 100 list, along with every single low rated film on Rottentomatoes(which I disagree with most of the time anyways)then to EVER go anywhere near Titanic again for as long as I live. Also I will NEVER ever watch those fucking Twilight movies, even my sister hates them and she likes some pretty bad films.

Diary of a Cannibal: The main chick was hot. So was her body double, who you got to see naked
Twilight: Allowed me to coin the term "sparkling emo douchebag." I'm sure all the cool kids will be saying it soon
Hide and Seek: Dakota Fanning was actually pretty good
Snake Eyes: The first part during the boxing match was fantastic. Too bad the rest of the movie wasn't up to par

I Heart Huckabees and Funny Games-both pretentious crapfests that Naomi Watts was able to at least partially redeem.

Awesome thread idea.

Bloodrayne was just terrible but it did feature a genuinely hot sex scene with a smoking version of red-headed Female Terminator Actress.

Cabin Fever 2 had an incredibly bloody and hilarious opening sequence featuring a man getting hit by a school bus and exploding like a water balloon.

Lucky You, one of the worst movies of the past five years, had a great cameo from Robert Downey Jr. and a really charismatic performance from Robert Duvall. The script, people, the script.

Femme Fatale, another 2/10 kind of movie, featured a knock-down brilliant opening 20 minutes that still stand alone as great entertainment.

I'm sorry Vexer, but after this list (with a few exceptions) I have a very hard time taking any of your opinions on the quality of films seriously.

And it looks like you're well on your way towards your goal of watching the the lowest rated RT films. :D

Welcome to last year Munich. Most of us thought the way you do but Vexer has proven himself to be a tenacious person that could logically explain himself quite well when he wants to. Now get with your postives

Post Re: Find positves in the worst movies you've seen
Yeah, I did take a year or so off. :D

Anyway, the first 10-15 minutes of Very Bad Things. Then it went totally off the rails and became a Very Bad Movie.

Yeah Munich, I can explain myself when I feel like it, but if you don't take me seriously then that REALLY dosen't matter all that much to me, I can understand people giving me weird looks for having a vastly unpopular opinion on alot of films.

Well, the last movie I saw was The Lovely Bones. Dreadful it may be, but there are positives, or, to be ontopic positves

The acting by the women is really good. Pity that the radiant Rachel Weisz disappears halfway and that Susan Sarandon wasn't given more screen time.

10,000 B.C. (2008, Roland Emmerich)

There he goes, running dramatically through the field, camera fades in to a closer shot of him running through the field, fades in to a closer shot of him running through the field, one more time... then he falls in a hole. Best. Laugh. Ever.
