18. Evil Dead/Army of Darkness
19. The Mummy (only the 1st one)
20. Pirates of the Caribbean (only the 1st one)

If I made a list of all the ones I like that didn't make the list... it would go on forever.

I encourage you to make your own list.


  1. Here is a review from a certified "Batmanologist" of the first Batman movie. (He later posts a review of the second one, also, that is even more dead-on).

  2. 9 was good
    10 I loved and is by far my fav on here
    only like the 1st 2 ijs
    ugh, star wars youre so hard to like except for cantina music now...
    the mummy movies are fun (tho havnt seen 3), brendan frasier is very happy to do b movies I think.
    the pirate movies are fun if you can ignore those annoying lovers.

  3. Janee, I loved what your link had to say, "There isn't a single theme. It's not even that he got the themes wrong; there just isn't a theme. It's a series of events that occur with the flimsiest of motivations." So true!

    Grant, if you mean The Mummy III as in "Tomb of the Dragon Emperor" then never see it. If you meant "The Scorpion King" then see it. That movie is awesomely terrible.
