Movies So Bad They Are Good
"Fateful Findings" was the first one I watched. I'm not sure if I'm biased but I think that one's the funniest so far. I also watched "Pass Thru" and "Double Down", but I haven't seen "Twisted Pair" or "I Am Here... Now" yet.

I think I agree with Frink.  When I think of "So Bad It's Good" movies, I think of films that were playing it straight and didn't know that audiences would react the way they did.

I feel like there needs to be a different category for movies that absolutely knew they were venturing into cheese territory, and leaned into it.  Maybe they'd be Cheesy-Good Movies?

Point Break

The Last Dragon

I think they knew exactly what they were making with those last two, I'd call them Cheesy-Good.

This would definitely be in the "So Bad It's Good" territory, because I don't think they knew what they were making.  Except that this movie was horrible, just horrible.  I couldn't even enjoy how horrible it was.

A Fistful of Yen is a parody, right?  Aren't they aiming for cheese?

This one, too, I think they absolutely knew how cheesy they were being, and they leaned into it hard.  I think they accomplished what they were going for in spectacular fashion, so I'd just call it Cheesy-Good.

Maybe some other So-Bad-They're-Good films...?

Conan the Destroyer

The Ice Pirates

The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai

I doubt anyone will have heard of this one, as it's fairly obscure even in Japan.  If you don't understand Japanese then unfortunately I don't know where you can see the film or trailer, but as the images above indicate, this movie is out there.  Read up on it if you're brave.
