I know you’re reading the title and you’re all like ‘well what’s the point of watching these movies if they’re considered crappy?’ Well, I want you to know that these films are actually worse than crappy, they’re absolutely awful. BUT, there’s a certain something about all of them that is just so nice, and so entertaining, that they could almost be considered good! Trust me on this. So bring up your favourite film download site, and get ready for another installment of “IGNITE’s Top Movies.”
1. The Pink Panther 2 (2009) this movie, the sequel to the 2006 film adaptation, stars the infamous Steve Martin, who plays the hilariously incompetent Inspector Jack Clouseau. In the movie the Pink Panther diamond is once again robbed with a set of other exclusive artifacts. Jack is assigned with an international team to hunt down the global thief who stole the artifacts. The fact that Steve Martin is in this movie should tell you right away that it is pretty hilarious, but compared to the first film (which also starred the STUNNING Beyoncé Knowles), this movie may leave you a little bit disappointed. In fact, worse than disappointed, it sucks. Nevertheless this movie sure will have you laughing in fits from the overdone accents and the stunts Jack Clouseau pulls throughout the movie. The cast also includes Aishwarya Rai Bachan, John Cleese and Jean Reno.
2. The Roommate (2011) set at the beginning of the college year, fresher Sara Matthews (Minka Kelly) meets her new roommate for the year, Rebecca (Leighton Meester). Sara’s friend Tracy (Aly Michalka) is convinced that there is something odd about Rebecca and soon enough bad things start happening to the people close to Sarah. This movie is considered a thriller and its PG-13 does make it come off like a “teen-version” of Obsessed (2009). Nonetheless, for those who love a little bit of horror and drama, which is awfully acted and makes you want to slap everybody appearing on your screen, this movie is the one for you.
3. Snakes On A Plane (2006) the movie stars Samuel L. Jackson who plays Neville Flynn, an FBI agent escorting an important witness on a plane from Hawaii to Los Angeles. The problem is an assassin was sent to kill the witness and he releases about 400 snakes onto the plane. The movie continues with how Neville has to protect the witness and the other civilians from the snakes and hopefully get them home safely. This R-Rated movie doesn’t sound all that entertaining but trust me all the profanity, violence and gore will get you through it. Seriously though, it is so bad. Don’t forget to join in with Samuel when he says the film’s most famous line! Everybody now: “I’ve had it with these…..”
4. Sucker Punch (2011) this action fantasy is set in the imagination of a young girl named Babydoll, whose imagination lets her escape her harsh reality. Locked away in an asylum by her father, she will soon undergo a lobotomy (Google it!). The movie paces us through her last days before the surgery and how her imagination blurs her reality. She imagines escaping the asylum with 4 other inmates, who try and retrieve 5 items that they will need to make it out of the asylum. Through all of this they have to go past all of Babydoll’s imagination from samurais to snakes. The movie stars Vanessa Hudgens, Emily Browning and Jon Hamm. It’s seriously crap, but the storyline was unique enough for me to fall in love with it.
5. Surrogates (2009) I hope the future of the world looks nothing like what this movie portrays! The movie stars Bruce Willis as Greer, who lives in a futuristic world where everyone stays at home operating surrogates through which they live their lives outside of their homes. When the surrogates of a man and woman are destroyed by a very sophisticated weapon, the FBI is called in to find out what happened and who was responsible. Greer and his partner are assigned to the case and they start uncovering more and more about the company that actually makes the surrogates and a conspiracy involving the army. The movie does come off as very unrealistic but it’s Bruce Willis, so what did you really expect? You have to watch it.
6. Drop Dead Fred (1991) the movie revolves around Elizabeth, played by Phoebe Cates, who is a young woman trying to really find her place in the world. Between her controlling mother and husband, she finds comfort with the appearance of her childhood imaginary friend, Fred. There is a lot of chaos caused by Fred being in her life as she gets older. The movie is funny at times and I do suggest everyone watches it, though it is pretty old – but that’s not why it’s so bad!
7. G-Force (2009) If you like talking animal movies, then you’ll probably like this one too. It stars a team of specially trained Guinea Pigs who are assigned by the US government to take down a diabolical billionaire from taking over the world through common household appliances. The humor in the movie is very childish, as expected seeing as the movie was aimed at children, but hey, it’s something stupid to watch if you need a break from revision stresses.
