Default Save a bad film

Ok, so I saw the Honest Trailer for Batman Forever today and, what are the odds, the film is on TV right now.

And I thought to myself, yes, the movie is not very good, but it does have some redeeming qualities: I think Jim Carrey is perfect for the role of Riddler (at least in the context of that particular universe) and the production design is full of rich images.

Maybe we can play a game where you say at least one redeeming quality of the film that a previous user think is bad or not so good, and then name another film you think is bad for the next user.

Here, I start with... mmm... The Happening.

Mark Walhberg is a science teacher in it so it's kind of funny? Ok, a difficult one:

Sucker Punch

In a year without disaster films, at least we got one for all of us that enjoy those. Have yet to see it though.

Umm... Lee Byung-hun is a decent T-1000 for the five minutes or so of screentime that he has.

Jared Leto and Margot Robbie had good chemistry, even though I'm not a big Harley fan in the 1st place, I'd watch more of their shenanigans.

Maybe the greatest bad film of all time except for Mantos (maybe) and great to see with your friends.

Saving Christmas
