    I can't think of any movies that I consciously know are bad but still like. I don't enjoy watching bad movies for camp value. I kinda wish I did since people have such fun with them. That said, here are some of my favorite 80s films that are very much of the 80s:

    Sixteen Candles
    Adventures In Babysitting
    The Naked Gun (and 2)
    Airplane!
    Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure
    Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    Gremlins
    Pee-Wee's Big Adventure
    Back To The Future

    I wasn't saying there are no patterns. You're not getting my point.

It actually appears that you don't have a broad study of horror, which is not surprising for someone who hates it as much as you do.
    I don't care which novel they were based on. News flash, a lot of shitty movies out there are poor renditions of good books. I don't have a broad study of horror no. All I know is that I didnd't watch the Exorcist for the way the characters interacted. I think the very concept of horror, the fact you must be focused on creating fear is going to take your mind away from the character. Even the range of the characters is severly limited. I mean, they are facing extreme conditions, so they are often wearing their superficial "survival" faces most of the time.


    I wouldn't consider most movies based on Stepehn King, horror per se, more like thrillers. But fair enough, if you consider a movie like The Thing a horror movie, then I can say I can like horror movies too.

    Oh, missed that one... but I liked "Can't Buy Me Love"!

    And National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation.

    Spaceballs sucked.
    (except for Rick Moranis playing with his action figures)

    But Smoking Gun was awesome.

    I didn't mention that movie only because it was a horror movie, not a comedy/drama.
    For what it is, it's pretty good, actually. Creepy as hell, Goldblum played the part well as as the INT manic, transforming doc. I never forgot him breaking the guy's arm in the bar, or him falling to pieces in the bathroom.

    Even The Fly II had its redeeming qualities, although the tone was much different and I thought it a bit cheesier. Still, Eric Stoltz was sympathetic as a protagonist.

    Having just re-watched it last week on my computer (Thank you, NetFlix!), I was amazed at the economy of the film. Apart from a handful of scenes, the entire film takes place in Seth Brundle's warehouse laboratory/apartment. The mockup of the computer console, telepods, and cabling was probably the single major expense in the sets, and that could be knocked together today for under $10,000... peanuts by filmmaking standards. The animatronic Brundle-Fly in its last two stages probably was the other major expense of the film, but still... I think if you had a talented make-up guy, you could shoot that script today for under ten million.

    That was Jeff Goldblum's debut movie in a starring role, and it was considered a masterful performance.

    Film highlight: Dan Aykroyd's character's nose looks like a d*ck. In otherwords less awesome and more awfull.
