7 More of the Best Worst Movies (Part 2)

Now for the continuation of the best-worst movies EVER…

11) Final Destination (2000) Starring: Devon Sawa, Ali Larter and Kerr Smith. As though life wasn’t hard enough without Death trying to kill you in the simplest but cleverest ways possible. He has made every part of your life a trap, the plane you fly on, the bathroom you use, the house you live in, the car you drive, the bus that passes by, and more. Every choice you make could set the design in motion, and if you change that design, Death isn’t going to like it. This is the movie that started it all, the long string of four movies that never quite lived up to the first, but shared unique death defying acts.

12) Overboard (1987) Starring: Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. So, you had it all! You were rich, lived on a luxury boat, and could treat people any way you wanted. Then, you went ahead and fell of that boat, got yourself some amnesia, only to be left in the hands of that handsome carpenter that you treated like dirt the previous day. Now you’re supposedly the mother of his children and falling in love with the simple, but loving life you never had. Sound ridiculous? Well, it is, but it works and it is one of the most adorable and funny romantic comedies I have ever seen.

13) Cruel Intentions (1999) Starring: Sarah Michelle Geller, Ryan Phillippe, and Reese Witherspoon. Let’s make a bet! Those words seemed so innocent until seeing this royally messed up film about a step brother and sister who make a bet that if the brother can bed the self proclaimed virgin-til-marriage, he can have the one woman that would never give it up to him, his stepsister. And, if he can’t, the stepsister gets his sexy car. Of course, nothing turns out as well planned. The stepbrother falls in love for the first time in his entire lengthy romantic career and the stepsister just grows more and more sadistic and jealous. Please note, that although this film spawn two sequels, they do not even come close to being half as interesting as the original and do not qualify for this list by any means.

14) 3 Ninjas (1992) Starring: Victor Wong, Michael Treanor, and Max Elliot Slade. For every one of my lists, there seems to be a movie about ninjas because they are so cool! Or so I thought of this move when it first came out. (I was 6 years old.) Now, I don’t find it as cool, but it is still very much a part of my childhood. My cousins and I actually watched this together on Christmas Eve! It’s like Home Alone, if only Macaulay Culkin were three ninja brothers in training and there were surfer dudes and other ninjas trying to get into his house and kidnap him instead of burglars. Oh, and if there were an annoying, little, buck-toothed, next-door-neighbor girl that had a crush on him. Just a good family movie.

BONUS!

15) Disturbing Behavior (1998) Starring: James Marsden, Katie Holmes, and Nick Stahl. I thought of this film at the last minute. I saw it when I was in high school and only rediscovered it recently when I found it for $5.99 at FYE. So, you remember high school, right? And do you remember those goody-brown-nosing-annoying-overachieving-zombies that couldn’t do an off thing to save their life? Well, what if they were really brainwashed by the system, altered to be perfect, rewired to conform, and designed to remove any “bad” elements from the community? That’s exactly what happens in this movie, and it is up to the students from the outcast clique to figure out what the he** is going on.

THE END!

  1. Yes, 3 Ninjas. I watched a bunch of 90s kid martial artist films over the summer, including this one, Sidekicks, Surf Ninjas, and the Karate Kid films (though the first two were from the 70s).

    My mother owns a vhs of Overboard, but I've never seen it. I have seen Captain Ron, though.

    I also enjoy Final Destination. In fact, when I was living with Mark, I wanted to rent the second one, but he was extremely reluctant. We wound up watching the first one together, somehow. Maybe it was on tv. The latest one is pretty lame, imo.

  2. I really enjoyed reading that AubrieAnne! I haven't seen a lot of those movies, but I'll try watching them someday - I remember watching Overboard, but I was quite young.
    This has been an excellent read - Movies are never a waste of time.

  3. Sometimes after watching a movie I look back and think, I'll never get those two hours back! This is great! I haven't seen three of the above - but I have seen Overboard several times - "Everybody wants to be me!" is my favourite line. Love Goldie and Kurt together! and ROY!!! The ending, a fairytale for all.
    Cruel Intentions kind of falls away in the end, but then Mat Dillon has that effect of me (I can only take him in small doses). I wouldn't watch it a second time. If I come upon the others I'll give them a go. More stuck to my laptop than TV these days.
    Great post!

  4. Oh I love Overboard. I blame my mother for watching it every time it is on tv. ;)

  5. Of these I have watched Final Destination and Overboard. And perhaps I should keep this a secret then, but I enjoyed both. The rest of the Final Destination's were not good, or even average. I love Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn and they were great together in this sweet film. I had this on VHS for years before I move out here (Dubai). Also, I could add to this list - Moonstruck with Cher. I must have watched that a million times and everyone I told about it looked at me with a look of pity ;) Seriously - I loved it. Oh and Frankie and Johnny Michelle Pffiefer and Al Pacino - LOVE it and it features my favourite classical tune: Clare da Lune by Debussy. Ahhhh ! X

  6. I haven't seen any of these! And I've always felt you have to watch some bad movies to appreciate the good ones.

  7. Final Destination: Reality - Any Mobil station Mens Room can kill you.

    Overboard: Fantasy. She never would have overcome the panties in the glove compartment.

    Cruel Intentions: Fantasy. The guy might give up the girl, but never the car.

    3 Ninjas: Reality. That's what is wrong with our country. Cut off the government handouts and Ninjas will have to work for a living.

    Disturbing Behavior: Non-Imaginative Copyright Infringement. In 1958, they called this movie The Blob.

  8. Aubrie - I really enjoy your blog and just wanted you to know. - Overboard is one of my top favorites as I'm a fan of both Goldie and Kurt and trickling down a generation - Kate Hudson is one of my role models. :)

  9. Matt...I love 3 Ninjas and I did enjoy a lot of those other 90s martial arts movies as well. Yes, only the 1st Final Destination was good. The 3rd was ok. The 2nd sucked which really was lame because Ali Larter's character was still alive and they barely used her. I have yet to see the 4th.

    dtwilight...I am happy you enjoyed it and I agree, never a waste!

    Moana...I love that line too! Most actresses I don't think could ahve pulled it off, but Goldie did good. Nowadays, I am on the laptop a lot, but there is usually a movie playing in the background. Last night it was Prince of Persia and tonight it is Max Payne. :)

    Tahnie...I used to watch it all the time when it was on tv too! Then I found the dvd for $5 at Target and had to have it!

    Shah...I have yet to see Moonstruck, but my mom and I started talking about it after seeing Burlesque! I thought Cher was so FABULOUS in it and then she insisted that I see Moonstruck. I'm going to pick it up the next time I see it. :)

    Debbie...I would certainly agree with that. Although, I usually love the movies people hate and hate the movies people love. (I don't think I have ever agreed with the Academy!)

    JJ...I have got to adore you for your honesty! Great points. I am also impressed that you have seen all of them!

    Katie...Thank you so much! Yes, I too love Kate Hudson. She has followed in her mother's footsteps nicely and made a few marks of her own! I adored How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days!

  10. I forgot there was a 3rd Final D. It blends with The Final Destination in my mind.

  11. Final destination was i think worst that I ever thought after I watched it.

  16. Um...I *love* Cruel Intentions*. I used to be concerned about whether or not that fact warranted embarassment, but it's good to know that it's okay {since you say so, of course}.

  17. Joelle...It's definately okay! I felt the same way when I first say it. It was soooooo far from the movies that I usually enjoy (or evenr eally watch), but many of my friends enjoyed it as well so I didn't feel so strange. Thanks for stopping by!
