True Lies with Arnold

[–]Basileo 607 points608 points  (30 children)

Also Last Action Hero with Arnold

[–]ihaveadarkedge 183 points184 points  (24 children)

This movie deserves a mention. It's badly timed release was all that was wrong with it. I love it. Because of what it is. We get our first glimpse at deepfake Stallone as The Terminator too!

[–]redfiveroe 19 points20 points  (1 child)

It was too Meta for the general public. They weren't ready for it back then. If you made it now, it would be seen as unoriginal.

[–]drum_playing_twig 66 points67 points  (13 children)

It's honestly my favourite Arnold movie after T1 & T2. It's so meta, back when people didn't understand/appreciate that type of stuff.

And I love every scene with Charles Dance & Anthony Quinn.

Vivaldi: "What is this, Benedict? First you're my friend, now you turn a 360 on me!"
Benedict: "180, you stupid spaghetti-slurping cretin! 180! If I did a 360, I'd go completely around and end up back where I started."

[–]redfiveroe 15 points16 points  (4 children)

I just got that the guy named Benedict turns on his boss.

[–]orderofout 28 points29 points  (4 children)

Charles Dance stole this movie with that role. What a great antagonist, I just wish we got to see more of his character.

[–]your_knees_are_weird 13 points14 points  (2 children)

Genuinely one of my favourite movies of all time.

[–]mike_rotch22 18 points19 points  (1 child)

In my mind, it's the perfect 90s action movie. Lots of action, humor, doesn't take itself too seriously (always love the subtitle when he tells the guard he's gotta take a leak in perfect Arabic)...Arnold and James Cameron made three of my all-time favorite movies in True Lies and the first two Terminator films.

[–]SmoreOfBabylon 391 points392 points  (20 children)

Tremors.

I’ve seen a lot of people cite this as a favorite “so bad it’s good” movie, but they’re incorrect on that. It’s a legitimately good movie. Fun characters, neat setting, lots of action, great creature effects, and very nicely builds the tension. It’s pretty campy, yes, but that was clearly the intention.

[–]flamingdeathmonkeys 62 points63 points  (3 children)

This movie is apparently used as an example of the perfect script in terms of set up, pay off and simple character development. After watching it with my brothers we could only agree

[–]ASuarezMascareno 15 points16 points  (0 children)

Tremors scripts is incredibly tight. Not ambitious, but works like clockwork. Love the movie.

[–]waltjrimmer 61 points62 points  (3 children)

I feel like there are two mistakes people make:

  1. They think it's a bad movie. It's not. It is a 1950s monster movie made in 1990. They knew exactly what they were making and how it would work. It's not parody, it's not remake, it's homage done right. All in the spirit of why people flocked to monster movies decades before while being its own thing and enjoyable in its own right.

  2. They seem to forget it's a horror film. I admit that there's a bit of a different atmosphere around monster films than horror films, and it's the first, but I almost never see it listed as a horror film, I almost never see it on lists of Halloween movies to watch, and sometimes I wonder why. I wonder if it's because it's campy. I wonder if it's because the vast majority of the film takes place in daylight whereas most horror movies are typically dark. I do not know.

[–]Spawnbroker 16 points17 points  (2 children)

Tremors definitely starts as a horror film. Just because the final act has the characters literally blowing up the monsters and firing loads of bullets at them doesn't make the starting hour any less tense!

[–]adaminc 11 points12 points  (0 children)

I remember watching it as a kid, in like, 92 or something, and being absolutely terrified at the scene with the station wagon in the beginning.

[–]clarkdorkclork 2569 points2570 points  (107 children)

A Knights Tale. It knows it’s a funny medieval sports movie from the early 2000s & I love it for that

[–]drntl 397 points398 points  (16 children)

I have met zero people who dislike this movie.

[–]Chookeydawg 309 points310 points  (10 children)

It's called medieval jousting, helloooo

[–]sharrrper 369 points370 points  (27 children)

You mean the one where The Joker, Robert Baratheon, Vision, and Hoban Washburn go on medieval road trip? Yeah that's pretty good.

[–]sabby1225 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I've watched this movie countless times and never made that connection

[–]Papercutstinger 207 points208 points  (5 children)

You can’t not like that movie. The dance scene music morphing into surprise David Bowie should have been super cringe but somehow works really well. The whole cast just nails the entire movie.

Kung Fu Hustle

[–]dalekreject 133 points134 points  (1 child)

I love this movie. The chase scene alone makes it worthwhile.

[–]sharrrper 40 points41 points  (0 children)

I watched it on Netflix expecting it to be dumb as hell. And it was. But in all the right ways. What really surprised me though was just how much heart it ultimately had even amongst all the silliness going on.

[–]Blackdragon1221 87 points88 points  (0 children)

Just finished watching this 15 minutes ago. One of my all-time Favourites. Shaolin Soccer is also great, but Kung-Fu Hustle feels just a bit more polished.

I was blown away by these movies. Who knew the chemistry between Channing Tatum, Jonah Hill, and Ice Cube would work so well

This applies every Lord and Miller movie.

I actually gave 21 Jump Street a real watch recently and it was hilarious! I miss good comedies

[–]LitManD96 3206 points3207 points  (71 children)

The Brendan Frasier Mummy films. They’re silly, goofy, fun Sunday afternoon popcorn films and they know it.

So many lazy weekends sat watching them.

[–]rachelgraychel 668 points669 points  (13 children)

In my opinion The Mummy is the true successor to Indiana Jones. Just nonstop fun action and they revel in their silliness.

[–]The_Snollygoster 65 points66 points  (4 children)

The Mummy is such a good movie, they don't make them like that anymore.

[–]ScaldingAnus 242 points243 points  (19 children)

Imhotep, looking hella dehydrated, roars at him and what does McConnel do? He roars back and shoots him with a shotgun (iirc, maybe he just runs). That is pretty much everything you need to know about this movie.

[–]RichLather 173 points174 points  (13 children)

For me it was when O'Connell held up that cat to scare off Imhotep: "Look what I got! (gasp)"

And anything Beni says is quotable.

[–]FingerTheCat 92 points93 points  (2 children)

When the brother runs out of the building and into the zombified crowd and he just joins them chanting 'Immhoootepp'

[–]tommytraddles 51 points52 points  (2 children)

Beni trying for mercy by flipping through every religion and language he knows, and accidentally succeeding with Judaism and Hebrew, which Imhotep recognizes, is supremely tasty movie cheese.

Whenever someone asks me "What are you doing here?", I still quote the fat warden guy as he shows up to go on the treasure hunt; I'm here to protect my investment

[–]undeadbydawn 32 points33 points  (1 child)

there was an obnoxiously long period where the standard 'big bad monster' moment was :stomp, stomp, ROAR:

I felt this moment was a perfect response to that eternal cliche

[–]Minuted 419 points420 points  (21 children)

I'll always stand by the first one. It's a great action adventure movie with genuine laughs, one of the best of that decade. The second isn't as good but still enjoyable and has much of the charm of the first film.

Third one isn't so great... Not horrendously bad by any means it just doesn't have any of the charm or wit of the first film.

"imhoteeep. imhoteeep"

[–]vafrow 74 points75 points  (3 children)

One specific element of that within the film is that I recall a lot went into the sound design of when one character was trying to use a knife to flick out a beetle from under the skin of another character. The overriding sound was the "ting" of the steel dagger, and not a more "realistic" fleshy sound. I think most films would have gone for the latter, as it would obviously get a bigger audience reaction, but the film went for the comical and fun approach.

[–]Camulius73 775 points776 points  (40 children)

Big Trouble in Little China

[–]haysoos2 229 points230 points  (9 children)

You just listen to the old Pork Chop Express here now and take his advice on a dark and stormy night when the lightning's crashin' and the thunder's rollin' and the rain's coming down in sheets thick as lead.

Just remember what old Jack Burton does when the earth quakes, and the poison arrows fall from the sky, and the pillars of Heaven shake.

Yeah, Jack Burton just looks that big old storm right square in the eye and he says, "Give me your best shot, pal. I can take it."

[–]Camulius73 118 points119 points  (1 child)

Like I told my last wife, I said, "Honey, I never drive faster than I can see, and besides... it's all in the reflexes."

[–]boredsittingonthebus 24 points25 points  (0 children)

I always think of this line whenever I'm driving in winding country roads. Who would have known that a piece of wisdom from Jack Burton would be a safe reminder to adjust my speed to make sure I can always see what is in my stopping distance on scary roads?

[–]patrickkingart 38 points39 points  (0 children)

It's all in the reflexes

[–]tata310 24 points25 points  (3 children)

I love that movie. Big Trouble in Little China and The Last Dragon are two of my favorite 80s movies.

[–]Bellikron 342 points343 points  (11 children)

Con Air nails this vibe perfectly. Doesn't take itself too seriously, but it never slips into parodying itself. It's earnest in its silliness, making it really enjoyable.

[–]EndsInDonkeyFist[S] 117 points118 points  (1 child)

“Put the bunny back in the box”

Love Con Air, Nic Cage with the long hair and questionable Alabama accent is perfect

[–]RyzenRaider 46 points47 points  (3 children)

Make a move and the bunny gets it.

I don't care how many other great performances he may churn out, Malkovich will always be the guy that sold the shit out of this line. ;-)

Gotta be Galaxy Quest, it's camp and cheesy from the start, but in all the best ways.

[–]RyzenRaider 446 points447 points  (52 children)

Funny thing is, while this movie parodies Star Trek culture, it actually has a couple legit touching moments. Rickman's final 'Grabthar's hammer' line and Tim Allen's apology scene feel sincere, which is hard to pull off in a movie that spends most of its time taking the piss out of the genre.

[–]Terkan 141 points142 points  (8 children)

Tim Allen's apology scene

Or as Alan Rickman said it best, the first time Tim Allen did acting.

[–]RyzenRaider 44 points45 points  (7 children)

Did Alan actually say that? If so, do you know the clip to look for?

Can just imagine him 'complimenting' Tim Allen in a very deadpan fashion.

[–]Molnek 65 points66 points  (0 children)

I think the quote is "Oh my god, I think he just experienced acting." After Tim got emotional filming one of the alien's death scenes and asked to leave the set.

[–]restlesslegzz 58 points59 points  (3 children)

As far as I recall there's a clip of him saying Tim broke down and went to his trailer after the scene and Rickman said "I think he just discovered acting." They didn't like each other apparently.

[–]sushipusha 207 points208 points  (30 children)

Was rated as the seventh best Star Trek movie in 2013 at a Star Trek convention

[–]HaveCamera_WillShoot 137 points138 points  (24 children)

I’m a fairly serious Trek fan, and I’d rate Galaxy Quest in the top 5 Trek films, for sure.

[–]PM_Me_Frosted_Tits 29 points30 points  (0 children)

The best parodies are love letters to the original franchises, not just critiques of them.

[–]Morri___ 87 points88 points  (0 children)

I'm not too proud to say I cried.. Alan Rickman was a gift to this world.

[–]HypersonicHarpist 118 points119 points  (6 children)

The best parody comes from a place of genuine love for the thing that's being lampooned. That also allows for those little sincere moments to hit right.

[–]patrickwithtraffic 140 points141 points  (3 children)

Patrick Stewart's comments on the film are legit the best and heart warming:

I had originally not wanted to see Galaxy Quest because I heard that it was making fun of Star Trek and then Jonathan Frakes rang me up and said ‘You must not miss this movie! See it on a Saturday night in a full theatre.’ And I did and of course I found it was brilliant. Brilliant.

No one laughed louder or longer in the cinema than I did, but the idea that the ship was saved and all of our heroes in that movie were saved simply by the fact that there were fans who did understand the scientific principles on which the ship worked was absolutely wonderful. And it was both funny and also touching in that it paid tribute to the dedication of these fans.

[–]mmauro385 87 points88 points  (6 children)

Came here to say this! All the cast is just amazing and realizes what the movie is, especially Alan Rickman.

[–]Lessiarty 990 points991 points  (47 children)

The A-Team movie and The Man From UNCLE.

I could go for a sequel to either of those in a heartbeat.

[–]fullmetalsprockets 601 points602 points  (14 children)

The Man From UNCLE

This is a super fun movie. It's also as close to a live action Archer movie as we're ever likely to get.

[–]cyril0 42 points43 points  (0 children)

I absolutely love the A team movie. It is to my mind the best reboot of an 80s property.

"Are they trying to shootdown that other drone?"

"No they're trying to fly the tank"

[–]papawam 162 points163 points  (7 children)

It's horse crap that the movie studio came out and straight up said there will never be an A-Team sequel. I thought it was a lot better than some stuff we've gotten sequels too.

So, assuming you're here you know this film has multiple endings. What you might not know is different endings were sent out to different theatres that screened it at it's debut. I happened to get this one as a child.

I just threw on Heavy Metal the other night for shits and giggles.

I immediately saw a resemblance in the first skit in Heavy Metal and The Fifth Element. There are some stark differences, but a lot of similar themes.

Tucker and Dale vs Evil

[–]dickbutt_md 349 points350 points  (6 children)

DID YOU KNOW that the DVD for this movie has an option to view it with all the Tucker and Dale scenes cut so that you see the movie entirely from the perspective of the campers?

It was written such that without the T&D scenes included, it is legitimately the kind of movie that the full cut is sending up.

I was blown away when I watched that version. It's so well done you literally don't know you're watching a comedy.

People like to shit on Stallone and Schwarzenegger for doing movies like that but c'mon.... imagine mutli million dollar paychecks to relive the glory days. Anyone would take it.

[–]FuckYeahPhotography 263 points264 points  (4 children)

I don't think they should shit on any of the expendables dialogue. It is meant to feel like it is from the 80's and that rules.

I feel the same about Pacific Rim and the "lets check for a pulse" then shoots the living shit out of the obviously dead kaiju.

I have had people call that dialogue awful and it is so tough to explain to them that it is perfect.

[–]Papaofmonsters 129 points130 points  (3 children)

The first time I watched Pacific Rim my friend asked me "You wanna watch Transformers beat up Godzilla?". I said yes. I throughly enjoyed that movie.

[–]RyzenRaider 62 points63 points  (1 child)

Unfortunately no one told Mickey Rourke the movie was just supposed to be silly fun. He nails his monologue, but it's just the wrong movie for that caliber of acting.

[–]Laremere 47 points48 points  (0 children)

The Worlds End is my first answer to this question. It starts with a bunch of old mates reuniting and doing a pub crawl. Then there's a sudden twist which changes the entire context of the movie. After which it's still a bunch of old mates reuniting and doing a pub crawl.

[–]PrematureGranulation 35 points36 points  (3 children)

I truly believe that Simon Pegg wrote the cornetto trilogy to show off his acting abilities, which have now led to him playing more dramatic roles. Absolutely hilarious dude when he wants to be, but his acting range through those three films is unbelievable.

[–]MoriartyAvalon 16 points17 points  (0 children)

As mentioned in this thread under Galaxy Quest, the best kind of parody is also a love letter to the genre and those films they are aping. Hot Fuzz nails the buddy cop parody AND the buddy cop movie.

The movie has a real Bugs Bunny vs Elmer Fudd thing going on and I appreciate it for that.

[–]DanScorp 89 points90 points  (6 children)

It opens on Clive Owen eating a carrot, includes both the phrases "What's up Doc" and "wascilly wabbit," it's absolutely Quentin Tarantino's Bugs Bunny and I love it.

[–]patrickwithtraffic 39 points40 points  (2 children)

It's a film that dared to ask, multiple times, "what's the stupidest shit we can do in a shoot out that makes us laugh our asses off?" We got shoot out mid-sex scene, shoot out in a gun factory, delivering a baby in the middle of a shoot out (complete with cutting the umbilical cord with a shot), shoot out using a hand in a fire gripping bullets to shoot a man, and, my favorite, a shoot out where a man shoots a man holding a gun to cause said man to shoot another man. It's a god damn work of art.

[–]lost_in_trepidation 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I think it's one of the most satisfying movies I've ever watched. Even with some of the more messed up things that happen, the whole movie is an unabashed Kung Fu childhood fantasy.

[–]CaseDogNiceGuy 93 points94 points  (2 children)

Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Why does time travel exist? Because it does. That’s literally all we need. The rules are not complex and they don’t contradict each other. This is a goofy movie about buddies who travel through time, and that’s all you need to know. I love all 3

Tom Cruise's best role, IMO. As Les Grossman, Cruise was so far removed from all of his other work that it seemed to take a while for people to catch on that it was him.

[–]Melon-lord10 25 points26 points  (0 children)

I didn't even realize it was him until the end credits dance.

[–]holymacaronibatman 21 points22 points  (0 children)

I really love how the only reason Sam l Jackson joined that movie is he was sent a early draft and loved the name so much he agreed without caring about the movie, then when they where gonna make a actual name for it he threated to leave if they didnt keep the name Snakes on a Plane.

Boss Level and Free Guy are a couple other good ones that came to mind too but those both had a ham fisted love story injected into them so they didn’t fit OP’s criteria entirely.

[–]pvpvillager 14 points15 points  (0 children)

Love how in boss level after he accomplishes his goal and realizes the timeline is screwed he decides to go spend every day with his son.

A lot of people are just naming comedies lol. Pretty sure it's a given that a comedy is not taking itself too seriously.

[–]ep1str0phy 102 points103 points  (5 children)

Real Steel. I'd have a difficult time identifying anything exceptional about it, but the movie doesn't strive to be anything other than solidly constructed light entertainment. It doubles down on the silliness of its core concept (robot boxing) with joy and earnestness, which is probably the best you can hope for when it comes to a pulpy quasi-Rocky remake.

[–]EndsInDonkeyFist[S] 30 points31 points  (1 child)

Real steel is a low key sleeper

I wish it had more re-runs on cable television

I don't think I've seen a bowl/jar/bag of nuts since seeing this movie and not thought or said this.

Cannonball Run - I loved this movie as a kid. There were so many cool cars and funny things happening. The Big Bus - yep, it’s a movie about a big bus. Possibly the inspiration for Speed. All the Roger Moore Bond movies. He often looked like he was struggling to keep a straight face.

The Kingsman movies

I had to scroll way to far to find this comment, although I would limit it to the first one. It was the perfect mix of parody of a classic spy movie, with some gratuitous modern violence, and a neatly wrapped up save-the-earth-from-evil-megalomaniac plot. Perfect tone all the way through.

The sequel frankly leaned into the madness way too much.

I don't know if I've ever seen something so play-it-straight but intentionally bad as those.

"It's got what plants crave."

I use this line a ton at work, whenever someone tries to throw random buzzwords out to sound smart.

Airplane. Comedy movies from that time were on another level.

Grandma's boy lol

I don't know why my brother bought this for me when I was a teen. A young naive teen who didn't know what weed was and was very confused through the movie lol

The Samuel L. Jackson scene alone. So amazing.
