What Was the Best Bad Movie of 2018?

– What's the best bad movie of last year? – Let's talk about that (funky electronic music) (fire crackles) Good Mythical Morning

– It's award season, y'all! (Link sings high note) And there are so many incredible films up for consideration The big prize could go to anyone from Bradley Cooper to Bradley Cooper – (chuckles) You know sometimes it feels like the movies we're supposed to like are pre-determined for us by a small group of mostly white old men who are biased gatekeepers of the majority of wealth and opportunity in the film industry (winces) But today, we're going to shine a light on movies that don't get enough praise on their own Movies that are so bad that they are actually good

It's time for Ranked: Best Bad Movies of 2018 – We've invited four Mythical team members to join us today Stevie, Will, Ellie, and Alex – Uh-huh and what they've done is they each have what they believe to be the best worst movie of 2018, the calendar year, so you guys are gonna provide arguments to us I believe that we have not seen any of these movies so based solely on your arguments, we are going to rank them up here and the movies can be theatrical release, they can be streaming, they can be direct-to-video

I don't care what they are as long as they're so bad, they're good – [Rhett] And we're going to get started with Stevie – Well our first movie is called Eruption LA And the plot synopsis is, struggling screenwriter Josh Kendricks finds himself the star of his own disaster movie when super volcanoes begin erupting all over Los Angeles – [Rhett] It could happen

– Take a look (dramatic music) – As I'm sure your agent filled you in, we need a page one rewrite on an earthquake movie Have you heard of Dr Erwin? You're gonna meet with a seismologist Why not do it after an earthquake? – What's all that noise? – Right there

– What the hell is that? – [Bearded Man] Oh God (explosion blasts) – The entire Los Angeles basin is sitting right on top of a volcano – [Blonde Woman] We didn't see it because we weren't looking – [Josh] Oh my God, this is worse than I thought – How much time do we have? – Four, maybe five years

(dramatic music) – Here goes nothing (explosion blasts) (laughing) – That looks horrible! – Suspenseful, right What happens? – [Rhett] How did I not know about this? – We didn't know because we weren't looking – [Ellie] A classic – It's a little weird too because you see at the top, they bring him in, he's the eighth writer rewriting an earthquake movie but he's already written a movie called Lava Angeles

That movie that he wrote that came out, that movie is coming to life in his real life, but for some reason he's also hired to write another earthquake movie and then as soon as he's hired out of that production office, he happens to get in a helicopter with that seismologist And who's flying the helicopter? Oh it's the female lead of the new movie that he's writing because she has learned to fly a helicopter from the last movie that she did – Yeah like Tom Cruise does – Yeah – This is an airtight plot

How's the acting? – Well the amount of people who are faking that an earthquake is happening throughout the whole movie– (warbling moans) – I'm really– (warbling grunts) You gotta have the right hair – Yeah exactly, there's no special effects to make the room shake or anything so it's literally like someone's yelling off camera like quake and people are like this – I'm feeling it over here – We gotta put this at number one because I can't imagine it getting any better – I'm not gonna lie

– It's really good – All right Alex Give us yours – I'm so excited, guys I'd already seen this movie before I decided to pick it for this, before it was even an option

Saw it back in October I rewatched it again casually and then I rewatched it again for this So that's three total viewings for me, just for this movie – Can't be too bad – No, no

I think it's great, it's called Mom and Dad It's the story of a teenage girl and her brother who try and survive a wild 24 hours in which a mass hysteria causes parents to turn violently against their own children It stars Nic Cage and some other– – Hold on, what? It stars who? – The Nicolas Cage – Yes! – You may be familiar with his work – He's very picky about what projects he gets into too

– Yeah, but it's pretty amazing Let's take a look (child giggling) ♪ There's not a cloud up in the sky ♪ (moves into dark music) – What's the rush today? It's like they're waiting for the fae – What's going on? – [Girl] Is that McKenna's mom? (suspenseful music) – Multiple reports are now coming in of parents murdering their own children – Hey! Put your right foot in! You take your right foot out (smashing objects)

You do the Hokey Pokey and you (bleep)! (Rhett laughs excitedly) – What? – Yeah – What? – Yeah it's pretty great – You do the Hokey Pokey and what? – Can you repeat it? – I have to say something because that's before the psychosis took hold That's just a scene in the movie where Nic Cage is upset He's having a mid-life crisis

He builds a whole billiards table and then his wife's life, "Were you gonna tell me "about the billiards table?" And he's like no and then he just smashes it for no reason – Yeah yeah yeah, never build a billiards table without asking your wife – But if you're gonna destroy it, you should do it to the Hokey Pokey – Yeah exactly I think we actually have another clip of this movie 'cause there's a lot to it

– [Link] Yes! (weeping softly) (all laughing) – Oh my God – There's no way that's in the script He definitely just decided to do that, you know – Carly Is that an accent? – I, (chuckles) no it's just

(Link laughs) – It's the peak of cinema! – Wow – Yeah I think Nic Cage has his own accent, that's just Nic Cage, you know? – Here's what I gotta say about this Eruption LA seems like a worse movie – Mm – But Nic Cage's performance is something that is so difficult to overcome when you get into movies so bad they're good, you know? – Yeah, yeah

– So we gotta up-end Eruption LA – I got to see it Oh and it's got her in it too – [Alex] Yeah that other lady – Yeah it's got the other lady

Nic Cage and the other lady – Don't disrespect Selma Blair – Selma Blair! – Oh Selma Blair is in it? – [Link] I like her – I mean don't watch it – Okay Will, what you got? – All right my movie was called Beauty and the Beholder, and it is the absolute worst thing I've ever seen

(all laughing) Like, the plot synopsis is a narcissistic plastic surgeon meets a beautiful woman who changes his outlook on life It was shot very well, that's the thing I will say I think I read it was shot in 4K Like looking at it, it's color graded very well, the cut throughs are very good – So you can really see how bad it is

– So you can really see how terrible the acting is – Got it – But yeah, we have a trailer? – Yeah (all laughing) – I am Dr Joseph Neiman and I'm a board certified plastic surgeon

I'm considered one of the best in the country (upbeat music) People have always been widely obsessed with achieving the perfect look Cosmetic surgery is the new drug, and it's in high demand – The leader of People Against Plastic Surgery would like to meet you Maybe you should start dating again

– What are you talking about? I date all the time, you know that – [Blonde Woman] I'm not talking about your strippers with benefits or one-night specials – I think you have never been in love – Would you ever marry a woman who's never been under the knife? – [Joseph] I don't think I can trust a woman that's never had surgeries – Oh

– What? – It's just so dumb – Okay wow – This seems so bizarre – It is very bizarre – But the lead seems pretty great to me

– He's like in his own world similar to Nicolas Cage He's working it up to be Nicolas Cage someday He's just like– – That's gracious of you – I didn't understand a word he said – He's like a mumble rapper

– If Bradley Cooper can mumble his way to an Oscar, this man– – Oh shots fired – He ain't ugly, he is not ugly – This is one of those movies that everyone involved thought they were making a good movie and they were incredibly wrong – They went sideways – You know what I'm saying? It's a different category of bad movie, like The Room, but I don't think it reaches masterpiece levels like The Room but he has a Tommy Wiseau sort of quality to his delivery

– He did, yeah, yeah – This is really tough I want to see all of them! – No you don't – I feel like Nicolas Cage deserves his own category, you know? – Here's the thing What I hear Will telling me is that this was so bad, it was bad

I just haven't heard that it started to get better and became entertaining – It does look good And it is funny, I will also say that I was laughing, I was like hold it– – At it, you were laughing at it? – I was laughing at it So if you wanna laugh at something, definitely don't have the kids in the room

– Yeah we've already killed them (crew laughing) – I think it's a three just because, this one's got a helicopter – Mm-hmm You better believe it – It's got bad special effects

– You're right, okay all right, we still got one more though Ellie, what's up? – Oh, let me take you into the world of Boyfriend Killer Can you guess the plot? Probably After the death of her son in a car crash, a grieving woman starts to suspect that his vindictive girlfriend set it up to look like an accident Let's show the trailer

– [Officer] This is Officer Ortega There's been an accident with your son – I have bad news – What's going on? Sandy, are you okay? – [Narrator] A mother must search for answers (gasps) – I'm so sorry, I didn't mean to scare you

I just, I didn't know who it was – Carrie, this is Krystal Preston's ex-girlfriend – No we were together Preston and I were still

In fact, I live here – You do? – Yeah – How long did the two of you date? – Nine, 10 months A big mistake If it's not keying my car, it's killing my fish

Or vandalizing my house – Why do you think she would lie about moving in with Preston? – Who knows what goes through a crazy mind (objects clatter) – [Narrator] Is that some women– – I was Preston's fiance – [Narrator] Make killer girlfriends (grunts) – No body, no crime

– [Narrator] Boyfriend Killer – Wow – Also fish killer – Yeah – Boyfriend slash fish killer should be in there

– So you're saying this is not one slow lead-up to just a porn scene? – Shocking, I know – Wow – So you have seen the whole movie in that trailer – Yeah we actually saw the murder (laughs) Usually you don't put that in the trailer

– [Ellie] Yeah yeah yeah – Can you explain the fish? – She was upset– – Oh okay – That her ex-boyfriend didn't want to let her in and so– – Not ex-boyfriend, they lived together They were engaged – Different boyfriend

Pre-dead boyfriend that the mother cares about It's a different– – She killed that one too – She has a history – The woman in it is beautiful I kept thinking that the whole time

I wish she would kill me (Rhett laughs) – You know what, she's really good And I hope one day she flaps her wings above the fray and into movies that have real budgets – Okay this is in the same category as Beauty and the Beholder Again, it's somebody who thought they were making something great, but making something unintentionally great in a bad way

– It doesn't seem, like the acting's not as bad as Beauty and the Beholder I can tell that by the trailer It's just not quite as bad – Wow – [Link] It's really bad, but not that bad

– Mine has the worst acting – Yeah – You're right – Hands down – They just say their lines

– But is this in 4K? – You know, I don't know stuff about that (all laughing) – Mine definitely comes in all the Ks The highest amount of Ks you can get Nic Cage is in, at all times – I'm thinking that Beauty and the Beholder's a little better than this 'cause it's worse

I mean this is kind of a cliche plot This is such a stupid plot Can you marry anyone that hasn't gone under the knife? It's like– – That's good in a bad way – Yeah where do you hear stuff like that? – LA (laughing) – Okay put Boyfriend Killer at number four

– Sorry Ellie – Wow – I think we're gonna leave Mom and Dad at number one, just because I'm afraid of what Nic Cage might do if we don't – Yeah that's true – Can I make a counter-argument? – Not really

(laughing) – People like this movie – Mom and Dad? – Yeah – Yeah it was great but it has like a 54% on Rotten Tomatoes, so you know it's like half and half – Again– – It's a failing movie – The number one is the one I want to see the most even though I know that it's bad

– I'll accept it I'll accept defeat because of Nic Cage – So there you have it, people Having not seen any of these movies, based solely on their arguments, we have determined that Mom and Dad is the best bad movie of 2018 – Yes, thanks for liking, commenting and subscribing
