    I feel like camp is used much more in American cinema than European (especially Northern European) in my opinion. I feel like so much of american movies and television are campy that I’ve gotten tired of it.

    One of my favorite So Bad It's Good Movies is definitely DOOM. I love that movie so much. haha Where else can you see The Rock and Karl Urban beat the shit out of each other? And then proceed to slaughter hords of demons in a surprisingly well done first person shooter scene?

    I think the movie Fargo would also be a great example of 'camp'. One of my favorite movies.

    Wow! I never would have thought that The Room and Princess bride have similar elements, despite that The Room's 'camp' style was completely by accident and much worse. :)

    Don't forget the other kind of camp! On the one hand you have "failed seriousness", like you have here, and on the other hand you have the John Waters / Troma Stuidos kind, described as "a celebration of poor taste" by John Waters himself.

    The reason I hate Sharknado is because the movie is obviously aware of how stupid it is, despite trying to play it straight. It can't be "so bad it's good" because it's intentional and thus just annoying.

    I'm sorry but I don't agree with any of this. So-bad-it's-good and camp *can* be in the same film (or series) but in essence they're different things. SBIG movies are just awful or lacklustre movies that for some reason become appealing. It can be the writing, acting, visual aspects - everything, and sometimes a combination of all these.Camp is a label that's often used a long time after the release of the movie/series, movies that were once considered acceptable or even standard, it's not always immediately noticeable. And intentional camp rarely works, the example of Johnny Depp's role in Pirates Of The Caribbean has nothing to do with camp.

    I guess it's why I love classic doctor who so much, particularly the second to fourth doctors. The camp balance was perfect. The good episodes are entertaining and so are the bad episodes

    I think Princess Bride is so good despite how corny some of it is because from the opening scene we know its a fairytail story. All the flair and the jokes and rhyming(anybody want a peanut?) Works because it fits the style we expect, making it epic instead of laughable. One of the best movies ever.

    My boyfriend argue that, there is no such thing as 'guilty pleasure', is just a way to hide that, you really liked something, but is too ashamed to say it, so people say is a guilty pleasure. But there is nothing to be guilty of , specially, like you put it, being campy, embrace the camp, embrace the shlock.
    Btw just discovered your channel and loved it a lot.

    This video appears to be a decent assessment of an entirely seperate concept. Once you can name so many movies which are campy, but good, it seems that campiness isn't the actual essence of "so bad it's good."
    The notion is close, though. I'd say that what makes a movie bad varies, but what makes it enjoyable or not enjoyable in light of this is intensity. The Room is 100% committed to what it is, despite that thing being a disaster. Sharknado feels like it's phoning everything in in an attempt to be "so bad it's good," actually making it "just boring."
    For an extreme example, "Who Killed Captain Alex?" is immensely fun, despite all of the problems an unprofessional cast and a budget of $200 in UGANDA can be expected to provide. Because everyone involved is not only committed, but happy to even be involved.

    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
