But that's comparing it to possibly the greatest SBIG movie of all time!
Hollywood Cop is so badly made that there's something to 'enjoy' in every scene.

Starting to see a pattern form here with films titled '<noun> Cop'.

It's comparing two movies made by the same director, is all. Further Shervan - "Killing American Style" has fewer funny scenes than either of the "Cop" classics, and "Young Rebels" is almost good. Almost.

The obvious ones are always firm winners (The Room, Birdemic, Troll 2, Ssssss, Caligula)

But i've found some absolute corkers over the last few months thanks to Lockdown:

Nutbag - an alt-right fever dream of a movie made by a director who was clearly an edgelord in the making

Zambo: King of the Jungle - Effectively Itallian "Tarzan" hamtastic and packs a decent wallop on the bad movie front

The Gingerdead man 2 - The first is slow and pointless, the third is aggressively unlikeable. the 2nd one hits the sweet spot of being cheap/nasty/AWFUL trash. but in a way thats bizarrely tolerable

The Films of Mark Pirro - Just...pretty much any of his stuff up to about the turn of the millenium "Deathrow Gameshow", "Curse of the Queerwolf", "Nudist Colony of the dead" all wonderfully demented trash cinema.

The films of Rick Sloane - Hobgoblins, Blood Theatre, The Visitants. take your pick they're utterly jawdropping. personally I steer clear of his "Vice Academy" movies (Not my cup of tea) and his sequel to hobgoblins is unwatchable. but his early films? Great stuff!

Didn't enjoy Killing American Style at all. Still rotten, but not really in a funny way.

I will seek out Young Rebels though.

Never saw this, but the director's later film Murder Set Pieces is fucking atrocious. Astonishingly shit serial killer porn, which isn't incompetent enough to be remotely amusing, despite the lead actor's McBain accent. Only recommended for those who enjoy watching strippers' implants covered with corn syrup and 9/11 camcorder footage from an unfamiliar angle inserted halfway through a film for no reason whatsoever.

Only seen "Nudist Colony Of The Dead", but it's a belter. Another enthusiastic recommendation from me.

The films of Rick Sloane - Hobgoblins, Blood Theatre, The Visitants. take your pick they're utterly jawdropping. personally I steer clear of his "Vice Academy" movies (Not my cup of tea) and his sequel to hobgoblins is unwatchable. but his early films? Great stuff!
I didn't really care for Hobgoblins because it was made bad on purpose (he made it with the express purpose of getting on MST3K, if memory serves). And the Vice Academy movies are shocking. But I've not seen any of the others, so I might go hunting.

I've been watching a bad/flawed film every week with some friends over Skype since the pandemic began. We had been due to go to a screening of Showgirls togther last March, which was obviously cancelled so we did it remotely instead. We've had a few films that were commercial flops or critical failures that I really enjoyed. Mommie Dearest was probably my favourite, followed by Village People musical Can't Stop The Music.

Awful film, with the stuff like Jack The Ripper quote, killing children and the aforementioned 9/11 footage chucked in as if to shout "wow, we're so edgy". Also, the lead looks like a muscular Mark Kermode.
