I've come to accept that I like the soundtrack more than the movie.

The 90s. Damn, what a decade.

And L.A. Confidential probably doesn't inspire much discussion because the praise for it is so universal. I've yet to see a 'best of the 90s' list, either by a regular Joe or in print or whatever, that doesn't feature it in the upper echelons. (Until now. )

It's in my top 10 for 1997. But definitely not for the `90s.

I'm with you on Titanic vs. LA Confidential, NE. Titanic deserves more credit than people give it.

1993 was a great year. If you wanna see a crappy year then check out 1998.

1997: Princess Mononoke
1998: Saving private ryan
1999: The matrix

I'd need to give my 90's list more thought before I made it.

10 RIDICULOUS MOVIES FROM THE 1990s



It's always nice to acknowledge great movies that stood the test of time and became classics. But quite frankly, there is no fun in that - unless you're talking about Back to the Future or any film that entered the lexicon of pop culture. So, instead, let's take a look at those awful movies that leave future generations wondering how such garbage was even made in the first place. This isn't a list of bad movies. Those eventually fade away and get forgotten. I'm talking about ridiculous films that leave as much of an impact as the classics. Also, instead of doing a "top 10" list, I'm gonna use 10 movies that each represent a different year in the decade.


10 - TROLL 2 (1990)


holy s--t, is that ramplate???

Troll 2 is arguably the most infamous movie of the 1990s. If there is a Black Sheep to the cinema of that decade it would be this film. You know Troll 2 is bad when there aren't even any trolls in it. The villains are GOBLINS. And not just any goblins, but ones that turn humans into vegetables and then eat them. Seriously. That's the plot. But despite all that, there is a charm to Troll 2 that has allowed it to become a cult favorite. It cannot be stressed enough that no one ever sets out to make a bad movie. There's always a reason why things turn out that way. And the behind the scenes tale is almost as ludacris as the film itself. Troll 2 was made by Italians who spoke almost no English and featured American actors with little to no acting experience. That combination is a recipe for disaster. So even with the best intensions there was no way Troll 2 was gonna be good. But atleast they tried... right?

#9 - SUBURBAN COMMANDO (1991)


holy s--t, is that ramplate???

MB801, anytime Doomsday or SnoBorder insult your beloved movies from the 21st century, like Pirates 4, just point at this:


Christopher Lloyd was frozen today.

WWF superstar Hulk Hogan was so popular in the '80s that in the `90s he took Hulk-a-Mania to the big screen. And instead of doing action films like Arnold Schwarzenegger, he opted to star in some of the most idiotic children's films ever made. Does that remind you of another WWF/WWE superstar? Of all the Hogan movies, yes he made quite a few, Suburban Commando is the most insane. He plays a galactic soldier who crashes on Earth. While he repairs his ship he tries his best to fit in. The results, of course, are hilarious:

#8 - ENCINO MAN (1992)



A frozen cave man, played by Brendan Fraser, has the great misfortune to be defrosted in 1992. So, after one bad haircut, some terrible cloths, and Pauly Shore as his new best friend, he decides to kill himself. Can you blame him? But if it makes you feel any better, before he left, he created this amazing dance craze:

Though I would call it a cute movie.

I'm not saying 1993 was a bad year (or 1996 for that matter), I just meant I haven't seen too many great movies from that year. It's a reflection on me, not the year itself.

Encino Man was called California Man over here; good movie.

And Suburban Commando is awesome! (Based on the last time I saw it, approximately 20 years ago.) I may revisit that one the next time it's on TV.

#7 - HARD TARGET (1993)


Wilford Brimley: Action Star

The success of Die Hard started a trend for high-concept action films. But for every Speed there was a Hard Target. I would have loved to have been at the pitch meeting for this movie because I can't seriously imagine a straight face in the whole room. The plot is about Lance Henriksen as a rich guy in New Orleans who hunts homeless people as a recreational sport. Keep in mind this isn't some dystopian tale about the future. It takes place in modern times. And if you thought it would difficult to suspend disbelief with that storyline, the studio hired Sam Raimi as a producer and John Woo to make his American debut as a director. But wait, there's more, Jean-Claude Van Damme is the star. To say Hard Target is over-the-top is an understatement:

#6 - STREET FIGHTER (1994)

Another Van Damme movie?



Truth be told, the real star is Raul Julia. You will never see a better performance in a terrible movie. Although some may arguge that Frank Langella as Skeletor in Masters of the Universe is pretty darn impressive too. But I think that performance lacks comedy. Julia as Bison is a camp classic and elevates this otherwise forgettable movie into a worthy cult hit. Watch the man in action for proof:

#5 - SHOWGIRLS (1995)



VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:


You have to give Jessica Spano some credit. Although her career was destroyed by this film, at least she went out in a blaze of glory. It's very cliche' for a child or teen star to break into adult roles in a film involving sex and nudity. But no one has done it with more spotlight attention than her. From the moment Showgirls was released it was making headlines. The movie was a notorious flop that critics hated and it practically killed the NC-17 rating. And yet, once it hit the home market it became a best-seller and is now a camp classic. And for good reasons too. The film is ridiculously entertaining with loads of nudity, crazy sex scenes, and hilarious catfights. This is a must-see for fans of bad movies.

#4 - JINGLE ALL THE WAY (1996)



Arnold Schwarzenegger's life and career is a contradiction. He was Mr. Universe. He was the biggest action star in Hollywood. He married a Kennedy. But... he also did stupid movies like the one where he played a pregnant man. He got elected as Governor of California - twice. He planted his seeds in the ugliest maid on the planet. And, in a strange way, Jingle All the Way is the perfect combination of the two sides. It's a ridiculous kids movie with Sinbad as a scene-stealer, but it's also an awesome comedy with Phil Hartman as a scene-stealer. So much of this film is stupid, but so much of it is hilarious too. I've never felt so many mixed emotions for a movie before. Let's take a look at this borderline Christmas classic:
