General movie thread!!!!

The annual Nic Cage I'll star in any pile of garbage to pay for my dinosaur skull collection has produced a whole bunch of terrible movies that are just plain terrible with the occasional B movie gem. Statistically, Willy's Wonderland, which I guess is a 5 Nights at Freddy's knock off, is much more likely to land in the just plain terrible pile than the so bad it's good pile and that trailer did nothing to sway me the other way.

Cowboys & Aliens

Terrible, all 2h15m were terrible.

I kind of liked Cowboys & Aliens. It wasn't nearly as stupid as I expected it to be given the silly premise. The plot is simple and not weighed down by unnecessary details. The aliens are here to get gold. Why? Who cares it doesn't matter. Our heroes want to rescue their loved ones. That's all you really need for a movie like this. It's a simple stripped-down action-adventure with a silly premise that plays it straight and weirdly that worked for me.

I do think C&A would have worked better if the played it campy instead of playing it straight, but I still found it a mildly entertaining action adventure flick. I'm not going to put it in my movie pantheon along with the likes of Yojimbo, Pulp Fiction, and Samurai Cop, mind you.

Did you see Logan Lucky?

I did put Samurai Cop in there for comedic effect, but I do legitimately love that movie. For what it is, it's nearly flawless. I have a love of B movies and Samurai Cop is on the Mount Rushmore of B movies. It's amazingly entertaining.

Oh, I agree. 

Also, has a great intro theme.  Not sure which NES game it's from

Personally, I think that new Cage movie Willy's looks hilarious. I'm sure the film as a whole will be mediocre at best, but I mean that any scene with Cage one-lineing and beating up whatever will be gold.

And I loved Drive Angry ... although I tend to think of that movie as William Fichtner's Drive Angry. 😛

First time hearing about Samurai Cop. Did see Blind Fury an embarrassing number of times. Does that count?
