    Dude....there was this TV movie named Alien Abduction In Lake County that aired on network TV in the late 90's. It's was the most goddamn absurd thing ever. It was a handheld cam type movie that followed a family in some vacation cabin getting abducted by aliens.....holy ass it's on TVclip: tvclip.biz/video/6pGcN3b1IRQ/video.html

    I donno about this video. And I love your videos.
    But I think there is a huge difference between Sorkin, Wes Anderson, sharknado, and the room. To the extent that each one of these could have a video about their styles.
    Sorkin, shouldn't have even been on this list. It's not campy to BE parodied. Nobody would call rebel without a cause campy. And it's parodied a lot.
    Wes Anderson is more of a dry humor. But he does add campy elements in the same way the Coens do in films like Burn After Reading
    Sharknado isn't "so bad it's good " it is purposefully a parody of disaster films and purposefully is awful. He is consciously attempting "so bad its good" and instead making an absurd ridiculous film that is only funny in its excess.
    The room/birdemic/troll 2, those are "so bad it's good" in cases like troll 2 it was the dialogue because dude couldn't speak English. And it showed in the writing from his wife. As well as a really bad screenplay and music. But he thought it was art(and it is in its own right) The room had the same awful script and writing. And wiseau has a very odd presence. It's like an alien trying to create a drama about earthlings with the audience knowing it was written by aliens. Lol.
    A good example of campy is evil dead. A good example of so bad its good is Troll 2

    When I watched The Big O, I had never heard anything bad about it. When I tried to enjoy the series on its own terms, I hated it. I found it annoying, frustrating, I saw it as a waste of time - then suddenly something clicked. My suspension of disbelief snapped like a rubber band - and all of a sudden, I was enjoying it. I wasn't enjoying it as its creators had intended, as a mecha anime Batman pastiche, but I was enjoying it, as something so laughably absurd that it was a wonder anyone could have taken it seriously. That, to me, is so bad it;s good: enjoying something more because you're not immersed.

    This brings up some points that i really think game developers forget these days as well - sometimes its okay for games to be games (and to act like it)!!! A lot of critics struggle with this as well often making comments like "x feels too gamey," and developers often try to keep everything up to these apparent "realistic standards" (i think pubg is a attrocious offender of this with its gunplay and moments when it tries to be that real-y tom clancy type shooter, while doing some very gamey things in the process) but i love those moments when a game can just acknowledge it and have fun with it. One of the top games of last year i think nailed it with neir automata's "fuck it, everything is part of the diagesis" style; that just made me agape at how fun that kind of "gamey" style can be.

    This video covers the aspect of taking something seriously but then so much so that your transmission from serious to unserious moments (whether in your life, or translated somehow on screen) remains serious, so that unseriousness is taken seriously, and vise versa. Nicely done.

    Another point to consider when thinking about why people like these kind of movies is that it makes you analyze the good and the bad
    We have great films as examples, that we use as a reference because of the story and technique they present, but that’s also true with bad films
    We take the pros and cons, and we develop our sense of art by analyzing them.

    So, no mention of Susan Sontag's famous essay on camp movies, Pauline Kael's essay on trash art at the movies, no cultural or social context on any of the movies you've mentioned, it's all a very smug attitude of "I've seen enough movies, I think that with my populist opinion I can decide which ones are good and which ones are bad". So, I do this and I may get kicked out of any establishment of education. This motherfucker does it and gets tons of views and praise. Isn't bulshitting your way through movies fun?

    A Nightmare On Elm Street series if a prime example of this imo. While everyone is busy freaking out or taking the deaths seriously, Freddy is spouting one-liners and pulling off crazy over the top kills seemingly every time he's onscreen. The sequels are pretty shit, but they're still incredibly fun to watch

    Totally agree with this. I think the guiltiest of pleasure genre, romantic comedy, can use this so well. Love Actually isn't a parody of the genre but is still so over the top and often cheesy, I can't help but love it. Also - what is the film at 5:51 ?

    Maybe I'm misssing something here but I dont agree with you at all. I wouldn't consider anything from Wes Anerson as so bad its good, and sharknado is too self aware to be one either, its simply pure trash. I think the connection you made between camp movies and so bad its good movies is a bit loose.
