Once in a while, a film comes along that makes you not only question your position as a film buff, but also question your entire generation. This event came to pass when I recently watched the cult classic Dazed and Confused, a film that follows groups of high school seniors and upcoming freshman on their last day of school/first day of summer in the year 1976. There are two unwavering facts that I am completely sure of after watching this film — Dazed and Confused is one of the greatest films ever made, and my parents had it much, much better.

When drug smuggler Julian’s brother is killed, he is forced to find and kill whoever is responsible on orders of his villainous mother. Set in a seedy neon-filled Bangkok, this story of revenge plays out much like a horrific nightmare filled with gore and intense cinematography that makes the film a delight for the senses.  Grade B.

I know what your thinking, Robocop is an amazing film; how could he even think about putting it under So Bad Its Good? Well before you decide to take me out and execute me like Peter Weller in the opening of Robocop, let me explain. Robocop is one of my favorite movies of all time, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t a bad film. This movie is so bad, that it becomes better then most “good” movies.

Robocop is set in a futuristic Detroit, which is filled with crime and violence (So basically Modern Day Detroit). The film follows a new cop named Murphy, played by Peter Weller, who gets brutally killed by a group of gangsters on his first day on the job (Don’t you just hate Mondays). After Murphy is obliterated, an evil corporation, OCP, takes his remains and makes the ultimate crime fighter, Robocop. Part robot, part man- all cop/ crazy gun-wielding robot on a mission of revenge.

I have always considered myself as a Dude; I go bowling, eat Cheetos, and have seen every episode of [i]Breaking Bad[/i]-twice. But that title was seriously questioned in the office when it was discovered that I have not seen the holy grail of dude movies, the Dude Bible, The Death Star of Dudeness: The Big Lebowski. With my Dude identity on the line, I finally sat down to watch the film; and my life will never be the same.
