I was making this list for another site since I want to keep track from now on, and as I've done before I thought I might as well post it here too This list is constructed just from memory really, so there may be a couple of mistakes, and they are ordered by U.S./Canadian release dates rather than the order that I saw them (which would be pretty much impossible to recall).
1996 (birth year):
I'm not naming any villains who were kind of bland or generic (Walter Donovan, Malekith) but weren't really a major presence in their respective films or villains that are simply too funny for me to hate (Mr. Freeze). All the ones listed are poorly acted, poorly written characters who definitely drag the films they're in down.
Walker (Stuart Wilson) - Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III
Dr. Claw (Rupert Everett) - Inspector Gadget
I'll be adding to this every time I see a film that is a first time viewing for me, and I'll likely add a few words too. I didn't think of posting this on here til now so I'll backdate it with the ones I've already seen this year:
Hobo with a Shotgun (2010) - 6/10. Obviously done with the intention of being tongue-in-cheek, but often a bit overindulgent and not really as funny as it's meant to be.
Jason Bourne (2016) - 6/10. A little boring, but this series has never real
Most/all of these films take some artistic license with the real people they're based on, but I will set some limits. I'm not going to count anything here like Amadeus or Quills (both great movies) that are less biopics and more just fiction loosely based on real historical figures.
And yeah, I'm a whore for Warren Beatty.

Half of you rascals probably don't even remember this format but here it is Again, just backing this up elsewhere and figured I might as well add it here. This is all the stuff I haven't yet bothered to replace on DVD or Blu-ray, so there's a lot of kids' movies and mediocre action films/comedies here...

I hadn't gone to one of these since I was about 15, so when I heard they were putting on one for ten days in my local city (with better rides than I was used to as well, my previous city didn't really get the full treatment), I was pretty excited. I had it in my head that I was gonna try all the badass shit that I was too much of a pussy to go on as a kid, and...I sorta did.
The first thing I tried was one of two rollercoasters that were there, and this line took fucking forever. As
I did this for another website and I figured I'd back it up here. A minimum of people will probably care but eh, it's already done. If a series is italicised, that means it's an ongoing series that I simply own every released season of thus far, and unless otherwise indicated, these are all DVD.

Socks with toes on them
The scene in Star Wars when the two Imperial officers decide not to blow up the escape pod because "they do not detect any life forms aboard"
- First of all, they're not even looking for lifeforms, they're looking for the Death Star plans.
- Droids are extremely common in the galaxy anyway so the "not a life form" thing shouldn't matter.
- It's not like they're out of ammo anyway, just shoot the fucking thing. George Lucas' cracks started to show in St
I have a longer, more detailed list in the works but it's taking a while to put together and I wanna do another one so I made this in the meanwhile. Again, live-action series only.

The films that I picked for this list all either have less than an average rating of 6.0 on IMDb or less than 50% on Rotten Tomatoes, and in many cases, both. Personally though, I'd rate all of them at least a solid 7 and many of them even higher for various reasons. I'm not gonna game anything like slasher series (unless it's a reviled entry I happen to like), Transformers or Batman v Superman which are all fairly popular really despite being disliked by critics and would have a significant amo
Some of these are better known than others, and two specifically have a lot of martyrdom attached to them due to being cancelled so early on, but ultimately I think still deserve a lot of acclaim.
10. Garfunkel and Oates
This one was more quietly removed and I don't think it really garnered much of a fanbase, but it's an amusing if somewhat uneven show with some very offbeat, non-generic comedy.
Favorite episode: Maturity
9. Clerks: The
Just to make this easier, I'm counting everything from PG-13 horror comedies to brutal borderline NC-17 pure horror flicks. However, I am not counting films that simply have some horror themes, but make practically no attempts to be scary whatsoever (Ghostbusters, Army of Darkness, What We Do in the Shadows).

It's nearly October, so here's some good ones you may not have heard of Many have comedy, sci-fi, thriller mixed in there but they all qualify
Behind the Mask: The Rise of Leslie Vernon
A Bucket of Blood
The Company of Wolves
The Curse of the Werewolf
Fiend Without a Face
In the Mouth of Madness
John Dies at the End
The main ones I'm looking forward to...
On the whole, X-Men is definitely my favorite superhero series, and I've especially loved Hugh Jackman's portrayal of Wolverine ever since the first movie came out 17 years ago. This film also appears to be doing something fairly different from your typical superhero film, which I appreciate.
I love kaiju flicks and this looks to be quite a bit of fun. Also looking forward to seeing John Goodman in a shady 1
Most of these range from improbable to ridiculous... I could probably fill this list with Sly alone!
- Jerry Savage (Rebel)
- Johnny Kovak (F.I.S.T)
- Deke DaSilva (Nighthawks)
- Robert Hatch (Victory)
- Lincoln Hawk (Over the Top)
- Raymond Tango (Tango & Cash)
- John Spartan (Demolition Man)
- Ray Quick (The Specialist)
- Robert Rath (Assassins)
Seagal has some doozies as well...

I'm taking the plunge and finally posting this
Specific story arcs/"graphic novels"/limited series:
Batman: The Dark Knight Returns
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Volume I
The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen: Volume II
Superman: Whatever Happened to the Man of Tomorrow?
X-Men: God Loves, Man Kills
This is one of my favourite sub-genres in science fiction (though not every film here counts as sci-fi), so I'm also gonna add an "honourable mention" list as they very end just so the primary one isn't ridiculously long. Also, I won't count more than one film from the same series.
For every Star Wars, Guardians of the Galaxy and Avatar, there's a space opera flick that didn't receive a fraction of the attention of those films. Some of these are inspired by those films, other are blatants knock-offs. Some of these are good, some bad, some inbetween - but all are entertaining!
- I'm not counting anything like Dune or John Carter (both films that I like) that in spite of being flops are such notorious flops that they're still pretty well known
Trick or treaters
Super Mario Bros. 3
When I write down some random idea I had in the middle of the night only to look at it in the morning and realize it makes no fucking sense

The trailer for the movie Tiptoes. I think all it's missing is a comedy record scratch, like so:
