Same.

I've always been fond of Manos: The Hands of Fate. Rubber was another oddity. I'm sure I can think of more, but they're not coming to me at the moment.

No way! B.A.P.S. is a cult classic.

The title "Snakes on a Plane" is likely the only reason most people saw that movie...

Btw, I worked with Sebastian Gutierrez(who wrote it), and he's a great guy.

Boy, you and Yeahsayer are not to believed!



Other tremendously bad movie titles.

Avenging Disco Godfather

Fertilize the Blaspheming Bombshell. Yeah, I can just imagine a kid saying, "Mom, we were just playin' around!"

Santa Claus Conquers the Martians--this would turn ANY kid off Christmas.

Jesse James Meets Frankenstein's Daughter--I actually sat through this turkey. Fun trivia fact. One of the actors in this rotten flick--can't remember if it's the muscular dude who becomes the Monster or one of the fighters at the beginning of the flick, had a part in a Star Trek episode, the one where McCoy helps a pregnant woman give birth. (Forgot the title, sorry). He plays one of the fighters who throws a kind of a spinning disc and kills the Klingon at the end.

See, trivia can be fun!

Another classic.

One of my students told me about D.E.B.S. Not as bad as I thought it would be...not as good, either, but it had some funny moments.

RIP, Michael Clarke Duncan.

I really dislike the current Hollywood practice of using common single words as titles:
  • Drive
  • Faster
  • Taken
  • Moon
  • Orphan
  • Paul
  • Salt
  • 9
  • Nine
  • Buried
  • ATM
  • Priest
  • and so on...
