Stupid stuuuuuuuuupid movie, but damn it is some enjoyable stupid. Horrible dubbing, nonsensical story, filled with so many WTF moments. The special effects of this movie are something to behold.

One of the few occasions I would totally recommend the dub over the subtitled version. It's just so much funnier.

This isn't exactly what I was looking for, as there are a lot of poorly regarded movies that I like without thinking of them as so bad they're good. I just genuinely like them. There are some though, like Spider-Man 3, where I admit that it's a mess, but it's my favorite because it's so ridiculous, fun, and memorable. I guess that makes it so bad that it's good. Same with X-men Origins Wolverine. But then something like Green Lantern, I genuinely think is really good. I'm not going to make a separate thread just for that though.

"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.

-Battlefield Earth. Stupid, stuuuuuuuuuuuuuupid movie, but quite fun. Travolta's over the top performance is so enjoyable

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

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...?

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.
