After I'm out of town, you folks can still benefit from my unique taste in film. The following are great Bad Movie Night fare, although not all are easy to find.

(This doesn't include what I already showed)

*Battle Royale*
This is what Hunger Games would have been if it was good, Japanese, and had a sense of humor. You won't laugh at this movie except in the way they actually intended, but it's definitely an odd cult experience.

*The Machine Girl*
Low budget Japanese movie about a girl who gets her hand replaced with a minigun and sets out to avenge her brother. Tongue in cheek and really, really over the top.

*Otto; or, Up With Dead People*
This is a German art house film/parody of art house films about gay zombies. Seriously, zombies coexist with the living but they are apparently all gay. Probably there is Meaning or something. This one requires a special sense of the weird to appreciate.

*Battlefield Earth*
If you haven't seen it, it actually works pretty well as a bad movie.

*Killer Klowns From Outer Space*
Slightly less laughs than average for my collection, this one is still a classic. Title says it all.

*Tokyo Zombie*
Two complete stoners (listen to the English dialog for this one, it's sooo much more appropriate) get caught in the zombie apocalypse. It's deliberately a comedy, and it's pretty funny despite that.

*Meet The Feebles*
Basically the Muppets except perverted, coked up, and obscenely violent. Reactions to this one vary. I think it's hilarious if perhaps trying a bit too hard, many people find it disturbing because it touches their childhood in a bad place.

*Repo! The Genetic Opera*
This one isn't funny so much as a bizarre gothy experience. They do in fact sing every single line in the movie, but individually rather than in musical numbers. It's got Giles the librarian from Buffy, and Paris Hilton, and it's just amazing that anyone ever made this. More so than most of my movies, it's amazing that anyone ever made this.

*The Glamorous Life of Sachiko Hanai*
This is Japanese softcore porn. Or at least, about half of it is. The other half is about the race to possess George Bush's severed finger, and the problems you have to deal with when you get psychic powers from being shot in the head. Even the porn scenes are kind of interesting because you've got people quoting Chomsky, time traveling orgasms, George Bush's severed finger, and so on.

*Fantasy Mission Force*
This is billed as a Jackie Chan movie, but it's so old that Jackie actually comes in near the end as the mysterious Man Who Kicks Ass. This movie makes no sense at all. It's funny because it makes no sense at all.

*FLCL*
This is actually a 2.5 hour anime. It's what happened when some Japanese guys at a famous studio got together and said "hey, let's make some totally bizarre shit". There's a kid, who is borderline molested by the older women in his life, who turn out to be aliens anyway and trying to capture a space pirate trapped in a giant steam iron. It's the sort of thing which is paced like a music video, makes no sense, then actually does make a disturbing amount of sense if you look closely at it.

*Batman: The Movie*
The Adam West movie. Bat-shark-repellant.

*Gigli*
In the proper frame of mind this is actually really funny. It's an honest to goodness so-bad-it's-good movie.

*Sex & Fury*
Japanese 70s sexploitation. I found it pretty funny, then again I can laugh at how corny it is that basically every woman to appear in the movie has an attempted-or-successful-rape scene in it. And how the heroine is basically a Samurai sort whose clothes keep getting torn. There's an American, and she's naturally a cowgirl.

*Zardoz*
This movie is kind of like a Star Trek episode where some alien planet starts going down the toilet and the crew of the Starship Enterprise never actually bothers to show up. It's got Sean Connery in a loincloth, and giant floating heads that vomit guns.

*Virgins from Hell*
Actually it's an Indonesian movie about a gang escaping from a women's prison. I don't know where they got the title from, other than "the marketing department". It's pure corniness. A bit more repetitive than I'd like, but it's repeating corny stupidity in Indonesian.

*Mega Shark vs. Giant Octopus*
Hopefully I don't have to explain this one, except to say that it's actually a pretty good watch.

*Dungeons & Dragons*
So bad it's good, because it's bad in soooo many ways. A (stupid) fantasy world where the protagonists are a couple of losers from some LA suburb. It's not unique in any way, just bad.

*Ilsa: Harem Keeper of the Oil Sheiks*
Not for everybody. This is basically 70s softcore torture porn. It's part of a series, but unlike the other Ilsa movies this one has a sense of humor. Intentionally or not. I think it's pretty funny, but I think corny torture scenes are pretty funny. This is just so incredibly 70s.

*Liquid Sky*
Been a long time since I saw this. I remember it was very bizarre in a very arty, chic 80s way. There are aliens, and some art thing, and stuff.
