On occasion I have been accused of a certain lack of refinement in my cinematic choices. The poltroonic minority that holds this retrograde view shall remain nameless. Almost all movies conventionally viewed as "bad" chosen by me for viewing involve one of the following: 1) vampires; 2) immortal people who can only be killed by separating the head from the body; 3) scantily clad women in need of saving from something like vampires, immortals, dragons, or ninja; 4) comic book characters; 5) space aliens; 6) jingoist hero facing hordes of the ungodly.
Now, review that list. None of these movies can be truly "bad" in the sense the great Joe Queenan means. He writes here for the Guardian, a pinko, limey rag, but he speaks true. For a film to be truly bad it must initially elicit because of those associated with it some expectation of being good, and secondly must turnout not to have entertainment value.
That being said, of all the movies that fit my criteria , (and I did not choose it for the super secret Men's Film Society) only one fits Joe Queenans, Ang Lee's the Incredible Hulk should be added to the list. I deem it the worst comic book movie every to reach theatres including "The Punisher" and "The Fantastic Four." Discuss.
