Battle Beyond the Stars
Seven Samurai in space. More lasers, less swords and space battles that probably had dozens of dollars spent on them.

I Bought a Vampire Motorcycle
It's got a talking turd in it - the film, that is, not the motorcycle.

The Thin Blue Line.
It's a great comedy starring little known hard man Rowan Atkin- no it's not it's a documentary by Errol Morris.

Basically the crux of the documentary is to do with the case of a convicted cop killer and the search for the truth which inevitably, as always, brought the right man, Randall Adams, to justice. It also includes the story of the later coincidental incarceration of another young fellow, David Harris, who happened to have met Adams on the night of the murder.

Incidentally due to the amazing breadth of detail and investigatory work and sterling interviews involved in finding out what went on from the murder, the investigation, the trial and even some really murky post trial proceedings, this documentary cast so much doubt on the case that convicted Randall Adams he was exonerated and released. It's a good film, in fact it's a film that had an actual affect on the lives it was discussing. And further it has a ripping Phillip Morris soundtrack.

the 1975 original, natch. james caan gives an underrated performance as the champion rollerball player johnanthan e, and john houseman does a terrific turn as his patron/boss. excellent support from moses gunn and shane rimmer, and a great cameo from ralph richardson.

In the "so bad it's good" category, Hard Rock Zombies
It's got dwarves, '80s music video interludes, bizarre Pythonesque comedy sequences, inexplicable werewolves, a Yewtreetastic romance (accompanied by a song that goes "I'm so in love but you're so young"), a bassline that can raise the dead and, about halfway through, one of the characters turns out to have been Hitler in disguise all along, then becomes zombie Hitler.

Legion of Fire: Killer Ants!
This film is epically bad. Imdb give it 2.8 out of 10. So bad it is hugely entertaining. Especially in scenes such as the lead character trying to fight off a swarm of ants by shooting at them with a shotgun.

The Distance
Three telepathic dwarves are hired by an Austrian conceptual artist who has been imprisoned inside an abandoned Siberian power plant after the death of his insane Russian benefactor. Their task: to steal an item known only as "The Distance" from a heavily fortified room elsewhere in the plant.

I've not seen it but based on that description I really want to.

The Adventures of Ford Fairlane
I have been on this site for years, but I have not until this moment felt the need to post, shocked to see that its not had a mention yet.
This film follows the exploits of Ford Fairlane - Rock and roll detective. It features enough hideously dated and pointless one liners from the USA's favourite 80s comic Andrew "the diceman" Clay to fill..... well, this film. That and a koala that hangs itself. One of the best worst films I have ever seen. Enjoy!

OK, serious now, I like se7en, john Doe is a total role model to me.
On the subway today, a man came up to me to start a conversation. He made small talk, a lonely man talking about the weather and other things. I tried to be pleasant and accommodating, but my head hurt from his banality. I almost didn't notice it had happened, but I suddenly threw up all over him. He was not pleased, and I couldn't stop laughing.
