    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

    Wes Anderson's films are quirky, not campy.
    You don't seem to understand the difference between comedy and camp.

    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 ?

    I'm actually considering making my thesis about camp, or more like, how it is used purposefully in movies and what effect it gives (comparing Sharknado and Tarantino's movies should be....fun).

    to me "so bad its good movies" aren't usually things i will rewatch unless high af or with friends, or even better high af WITH friends.

    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.

    I think the fun of theses kind of movies can also come from the rigid aspects of it, as Bergson would say about the comical effect. Regarding the "cartoony" aspect of it, I recently uploaded a video about cartoon violence, cartoon bodies and what physical, metaphysical or aesthetic reasons can be found on any given image to be perceived as "cartoony". It's 1 hour long, but you can jump to the minute 10 until the 35 for the most interesting part. I love your essays and I would greatly appreciate any input or comments or critiques you have. Thanks :) tvclip.biz/video/wovxu0NXGeM/

    The issue with Sharknado is that as opposed to a smart movie which will use camp appropriately to emphasize art, it uses it as an excuse for its low budget. The Room uses camp just because it doesnt know better. Thats why The Room is a so-bad-its-good movie but Sharknado is a BAAAAAD movie that was made to trick audience into thinking that these mistakes or the camp in the movie were innocent when in fact all Asylum movies are made like that because of their incredibly low production value and nature of their movies.

    ER used the walking and talking shot long before Sorkin.
    I’m also not sure what this video is trying to say. I get the appeal of camp, but camp is done intentionally and it can be done well. The Room isn’t intentionally campy or done well. I don’t see how it compares to The Princess Bride.

    Why Hela is probably the best villain Marvel or DC have produced, shes so over the top and the stances and lines so camp but it works because the film itself is so camp. The villain has to match the tone of the film which so often with superhero films they don't

    Heyo one thing I'd appreciate (and im assuming im not alone) is more obvious references to which movies you're using clips of. Ideally something on screen to reference what movie you're showing, but even a list in the description of movies you took clips from. Great video, now I'm gonna try and find where you said the name of that one movie. (I would say which one but I don't know ;) )

    Now come on. Pirates of the Caribbean would have been a good movie even without Jack Sparrow. Every character in the film is a comedic parody of action cliches. You can argue Jack Sparrow actually broke what they were going for (which was the same as Princess Bride). But Sparrow was so good that no one minded that he was a self-aware chaotic neutral in a movie where everyone else was playing their stock role very straight.
    As for me, my ultimate example of this effect is Judge Dredd. The Sylvester Stallone one. From all indications, the movie wasn't trying to do camp on purpose. It was a huge budget SciFi film. But between countless edits, adding and removing of violence and constant shifting crews, the movies tone changed so many times I don't know if anyone understood what it was in the end. What we got was a movie with a great premise but laughable acting and design. And somehow I feel like it balanced out to something really fun. Stupid, but fun.

    Man, that was a really good observation. I was thinking of campy films when watching one of the Chucky and Friday the 13th movies. They're not necessarily good or deep, but they're entertaining enough that I can get pleasure out of them, maybe even repeat watching them because they're so damn fun.

    This was a completely miserable description of the "so bad its good" category I dont even know where to start criticizing. You have conflated dozens of directing styles and given them an umbrella term "campy". You put many movies on this list that were never ever considered "so bad its good" such as the Princess Bride, which is as much of a comedy as it was anything else from its conception. By they definition for "camp" that you have given, all comedies would go into the category "so bad its good". Movies like Sharknado, Dead Snow, and any movie directed by Ewe Boll have their own category, its the "complete shit" category, and they did not exist before the digital age for very Pragmatic reasons. You would never see the original MST2K poke jabs at movies in this "complete shit" category because the people who made these movies were never trying to make a piece of art, fell short, and is now worthy of a little fun poking. The "complete shit" directors had no investment in anything with real heart, but just didnt have the money for anything but the film itself. There are real movies out there that are "so bad its good" and it was usually never intentional. To juxtapose, the "complete shit" movies being made today are not "campy", they are shitty, The intent of these directors often times is to recreate the vibe of movies that *were* "so bad its good" without understanding that those movies they are poking jabs at, are actually good because the they directors tried their damndest to make a vision come to life on a shoestring budget. Your understanding of this "so bad its good" movies is what I have come to expect from typical millennials that dont understand why movies from before their generation continue to be regurgitated by Hollywood oftentimes with disastrous results.
    I will give a homework lesson to you poor, unwise, unlearned millennial. Why is the original Point Break fantastic, and the remake "complete shit", if you say,"the remake is just as good or better", you simply have no taste in movies, If you say, "the original had more camp" you fail to understand. There *are* still good movies being made out there today, but there is volumes more "complete shit" to wade through before finding one.
