What movie do you enjoy that is so bad that you love it? It could be that you liked the cast or felt good about the movie. After someone asked the internet for other examples of these films, these are the top-voted movies.

1.  The Core (2003)

The Core is 100% the correct answer. At one point in the film, the main characters reach a point where the supposed task has met insurmountable odds. One continued that’s when “one guy takes a drag on a cig,” looks at everyone, and begs to differ. This line is so cheesy and commonplace, but “the entire movie pivots on that point.”

2.  Flash Gordon (1980)

One user’s father took them to see Flash Gordon in theaters because their mom was not a fan of sci-fi films and refused to go. Others joked about dating themselves by disclosing that they saw the movie in the theaters and enjoyed it. Although, none of their friends liked the movie.

3.  Deep Blue Sea (1999)

A group of scientists genetically engineered a small number of Mako sharks to harvest a protein to cure Alzheimer’s. Later, the sharks proved to be a bigger problem than the scientists anticipated initially. “You ate my bird!” This a classic line from LL Cool J’s character, the first black man to survive the length of a horror film.

4.  Street Fighter (1994)

Raul Julia exhibited superb acting skills in the cult classic film Street Fighter. One said, “30 years later, and it’s still a movie we remember mainly for him.” Julia acted his heart out despite his terminal condition at the time. Those things in mind make his “performance so much more powerful.”

5.  Hackers (1995)

Hackers was a terrible movie, but the soundtrack was amazing, and I “still listen to it fairly regularly,” another admitted. This film enticed me to want to be a part of their lifestyle, and it is easily one of my all-time favorite films.”

Unfortunately, Kip Raines and his crew of car thieves bite off more than they can chew, and to successfully protect his younger brother’s safety, Memphis has to get back into the car theft game. But can Memphis get out and stay out this time?

” You know what killed the dinosaurs? The Ice Age!” The terrible ice puns that Arnold delivers chillingly are reason alone to watch the awful Batman and Robin movie. This campy cult classic was complete with a star-studded cast that included George Clooney, Chris O’Donnell, Uma Thurman, and Vivica A. Fox. This movie is downright terrible, yet people still love it.

9.  The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)

Many people agreed that The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen was a fun film. Who didn’t “love the Nautilus?” Someone recalled the scene where Sean Connery’s character beat up the invisible man in a dark room not to lend him any additional advantages and thought, “this movie is terrible, yet, awesome.”

10.  Van Helsing (2004)

Van Helsing has Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsale during the glory days of 2004. It scored 27% on Rotten Tomatoes and a six out of ten rating on IMDb.” A final user commented, “But there’s something about the dry jokes smattered in what’s supposed to be high-tension scenes. The special effects aren’t the greatest, but at the same time, it also adds to the experience.”

11. Fools Gold (2008)

Are you a black-and-white movie fan or interested in the classics? Watching black and white films is an entirely different experience than movies in vibrant colors.
