There isn't really a bad movie I watch over and over, unless it's on my VHS copies of Mystery Science Theater 3000, recorded off of early 1990's Comedy Central!

The Day After Tomorrow and most 1950s sci-fi flicks.

Well, there's no middle ground with that film. You either love or loathe it. Me, I couldn't get past the first 20 minutes. I don't mind a cinematic mind-fuck as long as it's one hell of an ultra-orgasmic lay.

The first time I watched it, that rabbit scared the shit out of me. I liked Butterfly effect for its originality. But Mothman Prophesies bored me to tears.

And I loved "The Mothman Prophecies" when I usually don't like that kind of thing. Still one of the best films of its decade, and it's absolutely brilliantly directed, especially the grand finale with the collapsing bridge.

I plan to watch it again, because I have noticed that as I get older my movie tastes have changed drastically. As a matter of fact, I watched The Changeling (George C. Scott) last night. I hadn't seen it in about 6 years and I could understand and appreciate it much more than before.

Haven't seen it in over 20 years, but I do still remember that ball bouncing down the stairs and landing at Scott's feet. Was a lot more menacingly suggestive than the rolling ball in The Shining.

What I really liked about "Remo Williams" is that the excellent character actor Fred Ward finally got to headline a major motion picture; and Joel Grey's work as the title character's Yoda-like teacher was commendable, too. I can't work up much enthusiasm for the "Arthur" sequel, though.

I always thought "Arthur 2" was never as bad as everyone said. And, no, I think I will avoid the Russell Brand remake. How anyone finds that guy funny is beyond me.

If I can't help but dig a movie, I don't think it's terrible.

That said, I'll take the worst Ed Wood film over what routinely gets nominated for Oscars.

Oh, I forgot -- Bob Clark's "Rhinestone"!

The same can't be said for Clark's "Loose Cannons", which is simply painful to watch.
