This is great. Mark Hamill abducted by the Joker and the Trickster: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EL-VHe_4GmE

So meta. :D
There are two novels that can change a bookish fourteen-year oldĺs life: The Lord of the Rings and Atlas Shrugged. One is a childish fantasy that often engenders a lifelong obsession with its unbelievable heroes, leading to an emotionally stunted, socially crippled adulthood, unable to deal with the real world. The other, of course, involves orcs.

MST3K, Mac and Me and Atlantic Rim.

This second season of the reboot is better so far than the first, better pacing and really terrible movies.

Mac and Me scarred my childhood. At that age you're not supposed to notice when movies are terrible and even then I found it terrible  :lol:

I was prepared for some of it, but the total absurdity of the McDonalds scene and the final confrontation left me stunned.

Mac and Me is at best a so-bad-it's-good movie, something you are not supposed to notice at that age.  :P

Never actually watched it.

Is it so bad it's funny, or just so bad it's bad, like the Star Wars Christmas Special?

It's a shameless ripoff of ET combined with shameless product placement combined with completely tone deaf scenes that have no business being in a supposed kid's movie.

If you think that sounds funny you are right.

While I can agree with you that the Star Wars Holiday Special is more painful to watch than hilariously bad, it has its cheesy moments, and has to be seen to believed when one knows how possessive is Lucas with his properties.

Mac and Me, IMHO, is funnier, the reasons frunk gave are good examples.

Timecop

I still can't find any flaws with this movie.

There is a huge flaw.  No way can you have time travelling cops, it would wreak utter havok with public pension liabilities.

Another flaw: the presence of Jean Claude Van Damme.

That's a plus in my book. Timecop is the only opportunity we have to see JCVD in a decent movie.

Bloodsport disagrees. :rolleyes:

Bloodsport is a cheesy movie that we like because it's cheesy and over the top, not because it's good.

Timecop is a film that with a more respected actor would enjoy a much higher reputation. It's actually pretty decent.
