Best Worst Movie is a reassuring indication that such movies do actually have an audience, and are constantly revisited, appreciated and, why not, even cherished. What are the bad movies you absolutely love ? Let us know in the comments below!

The Good Bad Movie genre is not easy to define. After solidifying what qualifies a Good Bad Movie , we moved toward constructing a definitive top-50 list. Out of every entry in Swayze’s ’80s oeuvre, Youngblood probably gets the least reverence, but it’s absolutely deserving of a cult movement.

Here at Gizmodo Australia, we're big believers in 'fun' movies. A movie doesn't have to be good to be enjoyable, and some of the worst movies are the most entertaining. What defines a good-bad movie is mostly subjective, but generally one of the following elements is present: a bad plot, awful scripting, terrible performances or bad CGI. These elements combine to form a movie that somehow, miraculously, is great.

There's been many examples of fun good-bad movies over the past few decades, but these are the cream of the crop. Here's Gizmodo Australia's picks for the best good-bad movies around.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter (2012)

You could ask yourself why Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter exists, but I think it's more important to ask the question: why not? This film charts the 'secret' history of Abraham Lincoln as an underground vampire hunter going after the vampire who killed his mother (said vampire happens to be played by the delightful and underrated Rufus Sewell).

Because sometimes all you need is a good bad movie , here are 56 that Rotten Tomatoes staff have no problem confessing we love ! Yep, we ’re going to bat for films that go splat. Everything here is ordered from almost-Fresh to super-Rotten — staff picks of bad movies that we love for different reasons.

Movies reviewed in the very entertaining book " Bad Movies We Love " by Edward Margulies and But of course, most of these movies aren't bad at all. Listed in the order they are reviewed in the book The pair become good friends, but Sara never does tell him the true reason behind her being outlawed.

It's very campy and at times it's a bit dour, but it's fantastic entertainment all the same. Dominic Cooper is also having so much fan as vampire Henry Sturges it's worth watching the movie just for him.

Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter is a much better good-bad movie than it has any right to be.

Twilight (2008)

The reaction against Twilight was harsh and swift in the late 2000s, but it's important to recognise a lot of the scrutiny placed on the movie was a product of it being a fantasy movie purely for straight women. It's rare for movies to target women alone and Twilight has an important place in the pantheon of cinema for that reason.

But really, it's just silly good fun. A super fast vampire who shimmers in the sun? Hell yeah, why not. A budding (slightly creepy) romance with an ancient vampire? We're into it. Robert Pattinson doing a terrible impression of acting? Absolutely.

Main Fast and Furious franchise 'ending after 11th movie'

  Main Fast and Furious franchise 'ending after 11th movie' The 'Fast and Furious' franchise will reportedly bring its main story to an end after 11 movies.The blockbuster action series - which is set to continue with 'F9' in 2021 - will conclude after two further movies, with filmmaker Justin Lin at the helm after directing the third, fourth, fifth, sixth and nine instalments.

The lower the movie , the worse it is in my opinion. A very solid "so bad it's good " movie ! The combination of wooden acting, unintentional mistakes such as transitions Lovestruck, awkward teen Fred Figglehorn makes desperate attempts to make Judy fall in love with him - while also dodging the

These might not be the " best " movies ever, but I love them nonetheless. While home sick in bed, a young boy's grandfather reads him the story of a farmboy-turned-pirate who encounters numerous obstacles, enemies and allies in his quest to be reunited with his true love .

Twilight is ridiculous and over-the-top, but that's exactly why we love it. It's pure good-bad movie and that's just fine with us.

D.E.B.S. (2004)

D.E.B.S. is an action-comedy spy flick about four young women recruited to join D.E.B.S., a spy agency which stands for Discipline, Energy, Beauty and Strength. It's a silly film (and you can see just how silly in the image above) but it's also very charming and perfectly early 2000s.

In addition to having an excellent, diverse cast, it also features a heart-warming lesbian romance long before featuring LGBTQIA+ representation was mainstream in cinema. It's delightful, very quirky and holds up extremely well in 2020, even when it's very camp.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003)

Bad movies is the name of the game. There are movies that are so bad , they're good . And then there are movies so bad , they are bad . I mean BAD , HORRIBLE, CHEESY, SKIN CRAWLING, ANEURYSM INFLICTING PUKE PILES.

Movies that are so GOOD or BAD that you simply need to experience them. They are in no This is just an absolutely gorgeous enthralling movie . I also forgot to mention although it is simply one of This movie is a story of "true love ," patriotism, personal sacrifices, friendship, and extraordinary loyalty.

Someone at 20th Century Fox really loves bad movies, and we can't thank them enough for it.

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen has been panned by comic fans and critics alike for being a terrible movie, but if you squint, it's actually a very good-bad movie. It has all the elements of a typical early 2000s supernatural horror movie: vampires, monsters and James Moriarty, from the Sherlock Holmes novels. Yes.

It's a big team-up movie with major literary characters like Mina Harker from Dracula, Dorian Gray and Dr. Jekyll. Also, there's explosions and romance aplenty. It's wicked fun and an absolute delight, no matter what the critics say.

Click (2006)

Click is a typical Adam Sandler movie, and you probably know what that entails — or do you?

Audiences who filed in to see Click in theatres expected a typical Adam Sandler man-child comedy. What they got instead was a rumination on the importance of maintaining relationships and being there for your family. Fair warning, this movie will have you absolutely bawling your eyes out. It's a comedy, but it's also deeply emotional, surprisingly well-told (beyond the odd fart or dick joke) and there's plenty of reasons to love it.

Click is a low key masterpiece in narrative storytelling.

Elizabethtown (2005)

Elizabethtown is a romantic comedy about life and death. While it's awfully cheesy and very shallow, it's absolutely fun and easy to lose yourself in. This is actually the film that helped coin the phrase 'Manic Pixie Dream Girl' because Kirsten Dunst's Claire Coburn so closely resembled a male fantasy of a woman, rather than a real-life one, thanks to surface-level writing.

Still, it's very sweet even when it's silly. If you don't like the movie, just look into Orlando Bloom's eyes the whole time instead. They're totally dreamy.

Flubber (1997)

Flubber is a Robin Williams-led film about a scientist who accidentally creates a sentient blob of goo called 'Flubber'. It's up to said blob of goo to save the day, and the scientist's marriage. There's some typical late '90s antics, very questionable CGI and a loveable Robin Williams doing what he does best. What more could you want from a film?

While it's not 'good' by any stretch of the imagination, many of us watched Flubber growing up and it'll always have a special place in our hearts.

Flubber is available on Disney+ if you want to relive this wacky childhood adventure.

Batman Forever (1995)

Batman Forever is the OG good-bad movie. It's ridiculous, over-the-top and very fun. In fact, if you don't like this movie, you genuinely hate fun. It's good, it's bad and it's wonderful.

Rather than the usual grim-dark Batman affair, Batman Forever is an explosion of colour and wacky performances. Jim Carrey is in a league of his own (as usual) and he's joined by a delightfully ghoulish Tommy Lee Jones as Two-Face. There's awful performances all around, and the movie is much better for it.

This is the kind of movie where you can sit back and just let yourself be taken on a ride. If you do, you're in for a wild time.

Good-bad movies are an absolute joy. Forget what the critics say. Dive into any of these glorious trainwrecks and you're in for a fantastic time.
