19 "Bad" Movies That Are Actually Kinda Amazing, And That's That On That

·7 min read

We asked the BuzzFeed Community which "bad" movies they actually love. Here's what they said:

1.Eternals (2021)

Ikaris and Sersi hold each other and gaze into each others eyes

“I wouldn’t consider Eternals the best MCU movie, but I definitely don’t think it was as bad as critics said. Sure, it had some problems, but I truly loved the characters and this dysfunctional family so much. I bet this is an MCU movie people will look back on in a few years and realize how incredible it was and how much it set up for future movies.”

5.A Sound of Thunder (2005)

Edward Burns holds a camera while on an abandoned subway car.

"I love A Sound of Thunder. It only got a 6% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but I enjoyed watching it. It's about a time-traveling company, and how the accidental death of one little butterfly has huge evolutionary and devastating consequences. The special effects are bad, and there are plot holes, yet it's very entertaining if you don't expect high quality and don't take it too seriously."

8.Showgirls (1995)

Elizabeth Berkley Lauren singing

"Showgirls is only at 22%, but I absolutely love it. It's ridiculous and over-the-top and INCREDIBLY compelling (and Gina Gershon is an absolute treasure)."

"It’s really funny and entertaining. Yes, some of it is unrealistic but it’s definitely more realistic than almost all the Fast and Furious movies. And it has a bunch of successful actors in it that were just getting their start at the time. Plus, lots of beautiful classic cars."

Jennifer Aniston with her arms around Adam Sandler as they sit at a table on vacation

13.Practical Magic (1998)

Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock

"It is superior and it has everything you could want — amazing '90s fashion and hair, witchcraft, the beautiful Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock (complete with midnight margarita dance scene) and set in my dream house. It only has 22%, I think, but it is a cult classic and should be rectified."

14.Daylight (1996)

Sylvester Stallone and the rest of the cast staring at something in the dark

"I actually like Daylight with Sylvester Stallone. In the movie, after a tunnel collapses Sylvester gets in to save the survivors. It's a pretty cool movie."

15.Elektra (2005)

Jennifer Garner walks holding two swords

"Elektra is a great movie and you cannot change my friggin' mind! It did a really good job with what it had to work with, and it doesn’t hurt that Jennifer Garner was a perfect casting choice."

16.Drive Angry (2011)

Amber Heard and Nicolas Cage sitting in a car with a broken windshield

"A true masterpiece of a Nic Cage film. I watched it a whim and nearly broke a rib laughing my ass off. It is a wild, cocaine-fueled, adrenaline-packed, whiplashing, ridiculous, and thrilling ride of a film — not a million miles away from Crank and genuinely one of my go-to feel-good movies. Not only is it up there with the most batshit of action films but the plot is surprisingly intriguing and it has some great characters, alas Rotten Tomatoes and IMDb say otherwise it's a 48% and no one EVER talks about it. To me, it's a true gem of a 'bad movie.' Just sit down, shut up and you WILL be entertained."

18.Suicide Squad (2016)

Margot Robbie as Harley Quinn holding a mallet

"I know I'm going to get some hate for this, but the first Suicide Squad was silly campy fun. I think the Marvel movies really upped the game, making anything other than Marvel movies seem silly, and that's both good AND bad because now, we can't have a mindless fun blowup fest without someone calling out the film for 'lack of plot.' Sometimes I want to cry during a movie, but other times, I just want to zone out and watch a super-hot dude with powers or amazing abilities mess shit up, no rhyme or reason!"

19.And finally, Cats (2019)

Taylor Swift as a Cat

"MY GOD! Cats is not that bad. No, it's not poetic cinema, but it does not deserve all the hate."
