Major League 3 - Back to the Minors. Scott Bakula rules. Love this stupid movie.

I can't believe Sahara is at 35%. A great action/adventure leave-your-brain-at-the-door flick.

I think the biggest knock against Sahara was the budget. They lost so much money that it became a laughing stock. If they didn't both coming up with their own lens filters and whatnot we'd likely have a fun little series of movies but sadly no production company will touch it now. Which sucks, the books are fun too, I'd love to see more of those characters.

My biggest problem with Sahara was two-fold, iirc:


1) They butchered the character of Giordino
2) They left out the best part of the plotline of the book

I loved Zahns rendition on Al though. It's definitely a far take from the tough intimidating character in the novels but I loved the chemistry they had. Although if they added a scene or two where he did a bit more of the action so the audience took him a bit more seriously, I wouldn't have minded

Major League 3 was better then it should have been because it had the franchise killer Ted McGinley in it. The guy is literally the hand of death in the entertainment industry.

Its not quite 38% but I think it has to be an honorable mention is Career Opportunities just because the movie is so insane and is a who's who of some very weird actors.


Frank Whaley, Dermot and Kieran Mulroney. Jennifer Connolly.


When you watch that movie its basically a teen movie that's smoked crack.

Not sure on the RT ratings but

Drop Dead Fred

Punisher War Zone - the scene where the guy doing parkour gets blown up by a rocket launcher is cinema gold

Idle Hands

The Happening features a legendary performance from Mark Wahlberg.

Benchwarmers

She Devil

Problem Child

Anything with Paulie Shore.

another honorable mention for me even though its at 31 percent, the 1993 three muskateers. The one with Sheen and Tim Currey etc.


I really liked the movie, I liked how Tim Currey and Oliver Platt completely chewed up the scenery in it and took over the movie.



Its a guilty pleasure movie to me, because it feels like a movie that was fun to make.

If we are allowing honorable mentions, I'll throw in The 13th Warrior at RT33%. Pretty well done movie, imo.

Michael Wincott was perfect in that role.

Lawnmower man has a 36%. I loved it the first time I saw it, I haven't risked watching it again.Lawnmower man 2, however, was not good. 11%.

I know I'm looking at it with child nostalgic eyes but I can't believe this was only 31% percent. The audience score of 62% is a much better indication of it's quality.
