    Army of Darkness

    all others.

    really? REALLY? you put Army of Darkness on a list of a bunch of really "ok to crappy" movies? REALLY? and ask us to order it?

    ok, Speed Racer, Waterworld, and Cutthroat Island are ok. idk about dark shadows, but by the account that they turned a relatively serious story line, and turned it into blackula, and then shoved an entire series worth of characterization and plot, into a 100 minute movie... i think it's probably going to be bad.

    so Army of Darkness, Water World, Speed Racer, Cutthroat Island, maybe 1941, i haven't seen it in awhile though. all the rest suck. but none of these movies deserve to be on ANY list with Army of Darkness.

    I love Army of Darkness and it's a cult fave now but on its initial release it was considered to be a complete and utter disaster in comparison to the previous Evil Dead films.

    Mainly because of the shift in tone from horror to comedy and people not being able to relate to slapstick.

    army of darkness was good in 1992, and it is still good, in 2012.

    howard the duck was bad in 1986, to the point where lucas himself, is even ashamed of it, and it still sucks today.

    This isn't about which ones you liked.

    The intention is really more "least worst to worst overall"

    Best to worst in terms of personal entertainment. Only the studios need worry about box office takings.

    Yeah that's cool.

    I only liked the first four I put on my list.

    I probably worded it poorly but what I mean is just because you ranked it doesn't mean you have to like it.

    WHAT!? Scott Pilgrim was ok to me. Scale of 1 to 10: 6.5/7. Speed Racer's film stock needs to be: put in a box, then burn the box, then shoot the remains.

    I liked Speed Racer and Sucker Punch. Disliked Scott Pilgrim because I thought they were all douchebags in those movies, played by hipster douchebags. I never read the graphic novels, but I like those better. Shoulda been done differently. Well, I liked Ramona 'coz she's hot.

    WaterWorld is my favorite out of that list.

    The others were crap.

    I've only seen 2 of those movies on that list, and they only one I love is Scott Pilgrim. Speed Racer should never have been made.

    I'll catch some heat for this but here goes.

    Scott Pilgram
    Mallrats
    Army of Darkness
    Waterworld
    Sucker Punch
    Howard the Duck

    I haven't seen the others so I didn't list them. Army of Darkness falls to 3 because I have the top two on disk so I must like them more.

    Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World: Awesome
    Army of Darkness: Totally Awesome, everyone has to see it.
    Dark Shadows: Not seen it
    Mallrats: I liked it personally and think its actually one of smiths best films
    Howard The Duck: Its stupid movie, almost so bad it good.
    Cutthroat Island: Is that the one with gena davis? it passes the time but is in no way good.
    Waterworld: It's a film everyone should see, so they understand why kevin constner isn't in films anymore.
    1941: I've not seen it.
    Speed Racer: Again not seen it.

    Army of Darkness is the best hands down. While Scott Pilgrim is a good second. I enjoyed Waterworld, 1941, and Cutthroat Island for what they were. I didn't hate Sucker Punch, but I didn't like it either. I never saw Mallrats or Dark Shadows. Speed Racer was alright, but I feel no need to see it again. I don't know of anyone that likes Howard the Duck.
