Underworld (Rotten Tomatoes 30%). Love, love that movie.

Underworld Evolution (Rotten Tomatoes 15%). Not as good as the original, but quite liked it. Of course, the prequel sucked donkey balls (and inexplicably has the highest rating of all three on Rotten Tomatoes, 32%, which proves that Rotten Tomatoes isn't worth the bandwidth).

The aforementioned Thirteenth Warrior (33%) a retelling of Beowulf by noted author and later douchebag Michael Chrichton.

Evolution (42%): scientifically stupid and yet totally hilarious to me, partially because it was filmed in Northern Arizona and the main character is a community college professor and I used to be a community college professor in Northern Arizona. The characters show that at least one of the authors knows the area, because several stereotypical asshole citizens straight out of reality show up. Top it off with Dan Ackroyd as an incompetent and self-serving Arizona governor (who is probably less incompetent and self-serving than any of the actual governors Arizona has had since 1979, Jane Hull notwithstanding).

XXX (48%). Okay, the plot is flimsy, but no flimsier than a regular James Bond movie, and Vin Diesel's character is quite amusing. Good stuff if you just want an action flick. I really hope the 2012 sequel happens to make up for the wretched State of the Union "sequel" that sucked armadillo dick.

Chronicles of Riddick (29%). Another Vin Diesel vehicle (yeah, sue me, I like the guy) that also makes not a lot of sense if you haven't watched the prequel Pitch Black. I thought it was fantastic though. It was probably over everyone's head, though.

Man: Is there a name for this private little world of yours, huh? What happens there when we don't just run away? You'll kill us … with a soup cup?
Riddick: Tea, actually.
Man: What's that?

Really enjoyed it.

It was the funniest film ever. I don't care what anyone says.



Now this definitely didn't age well. Saw last year. Was not impressed.

Men In Tights is great, I’d put it up there with Spaceballs. I can understand if 43% is critic rating, but user?

The critics panned it on release.

Love Men In Tights.

I also watched Sister Act 2 the other day. I used to love it when I was a kid, but I thought it would be shite now. I actually still think it's good. Yeah all of the characters are two-dimensional stereotypes of early-90s street culture, and the plot is the same as every film ever, but 7% on Rotten Tomatoes is harsh. A little unfair to have a school choir competition where one of the schools gets to have Lauryn Hill though. Obviously they were going to win.

The Man With The Golden Gun (1974)

44% (critics' score) and 56% (audience score) at Rottentomatoes.com
And it frequently appears in lists of "worst Bond movies".

There are missteps (e.g. the return of Sheriff Pepper (from Live and Let Die), the slide-whistle sound effect marring the brilliant 'corkscrew' car stunt, the waste of gorgeous Britt Ekland in a bimbo role, and Bond's unnecessary brutalization of Andrea Anders), but there are plus-points...

* Christopher Lee as Scaramanga, an 'anti-Bond' almost as formidable as Bond himself.
* Herve Villechaize as the memorable henchman 'Nick Nack'.
* exotic scenery, especially in Thailand's Phang Nga Bay.
* topnotch FX work by Derek Meddings and others (e.g. Scaramanga's flying car, and the climactic island destruction sequence).
* Lulu's opening song (some hate it, I love it).

It's one of my all-time favorite Bond movies.

Gotta be Blazing Saddles for me. Most wtf moments and laughs per minute of just about anything else I can think of. The first time I saw it I was literally laughing so hard I couldn't breathe!
