15 movies so bad they're good: Part two

Continuing our ongoing journey into the acceptably terrible, this week we have a look at another five movies so bad they're actually entertaining.

If you missed out on part one, be sure to check it out right over hee-ya. Once you're all caught up, continue reading these latest offerings:

Vanilla Sky: (Dodges things being thrown at me.) I figured I better get this one out of the way first. I'm sorry. I know Tom bat-shit-insane Cruise is in this, I know the story is a bit overdone and...You know what? I don't have to defend myself. The whole point is we know these movies are terrible. Now I'll just go a step further and admit I like this bad, bad movie.

Waterworld: Screwyouthisisawesome! I mean, it's about a post-apocalyptic Earth where the ocean is never-ending and Kevin Costner plays a merman with a wicked chip on his shoulder. There's also pirates. What's not to like?

Rocky Horror Picture Show: I'm most amazed by how well this (let's face it) terrible movie is loved considering when it came out. Transsexuals, transvestites, homosexuals and more! And this came out in the 70s? We're barely cool with talking about this stuff in the new century. I consider this fact a testament to RHPS' undeniable awesomeness.

Killer Klowns from Outer Space: One of the most obscure films to make the list, do yourself a favor and go rent this horror gem. Horror movies are frequently so bad they're good, but this one's a true klassic.

Big Trouble in Little China: I almost didn't put this one on the list. Depending on the day, I would argue it's a good, good movie and not a good, bad movie. Then again, the cheesy dialogue, cheesy acting, cheesily stereotypical characters and cheesy just about everything else are tell-tale of what would usually make for a bad flick. Thankfully, Big Trouble is off the charts in the "kickass" department, so we'll just call it even.
