Bad movies, not cinematic masterpieces.

Figures you guys must think Batman and Robin is a masterpiece.

I actually enjoyed the 90's on-screen adaptations of top fighting video games at the time: Double Dragon, Mortal Kombat, and the live-action Street Fighter.

Troll 2 is an excellent shout. Although not considered universally bad, I'd add Riki-Oh: The Story of Ricky. It's not quite for the squeamish, as there's plenty of ridiculous over-the-top gore, but it is absolutely entertaining to watch.

on that note i'd add any early Peter Jackson movie (Dead Alive, Bad Taste, Meet the Feebles)...although i think those are kind of intentionally bad and schlocky

I don't know about "can't stop watching", but some I like:

Darby O'Gill and the little people
Hair (1979)
All the 1970s Planet of the apes movies
Running Man
Some of the Christopher Lee Dracula movies
Beavis And Butthead Do America

My guilty pleasure are the teen comedies I watched in high school- American Pies, Can't Hardly Wait and stuff like that. They are so bad, but I still like watching them. Nostalgia effect I guess.

So for anyone who doesn't want to read every post in the thread, the bad movies we can't stop watching are basically anything from the late 80s and early 90s. Bonus points for having Andrew McCarthy in a starring role.
