Is The Dark Knight Rises on the list? I hope not. Sorry to mention it again.

SpeedyEric

I love the entire Dark Knight Trilogy. Also, all three films are in IMDB’s Top 250, and are a Certified Fresh on Rotten Tomatoes.

Ergotth
Guest

as much as the third dark knight was a good movie, I just hated the portrayal of Bane and Tahlia, it didn’t kill the movie, but I think Nolam went a bit on the wrong direction giving Bane what could have been better as the lines and action of Riddler or Mr. Freeze.

My list of Batman movies from best to worst: Batman returns Batman (1989) The Dark Knight The Dark Knight Rises Batman Begins Catwoman Batman: The movie (1966) Batman Forever Batman and Robin You may or may not agree with the exact order and it may or may not make a difference if you care that Tim burton movies are the classic, but I think we can all agree that all the Nolan and Burton movies deserve to be near the top and the Shumacker movies belong at the Bottom. And the 1966 version wasn’t even trying, it was basically an… Read more »

OK seriously why does it keep going black all the time and why are his lips not insync.

silverbrumbyfan

Its working just fine for me, it might be your connection or give the video a few minutes to load before starting it

ShadowsTwilight
Guest

No idea about the lip syncing, it looks fine to me, but the black part is what happens for people with adblock when it reaches the commercial.

The crying guy in between movies is making me unconfortable as heck xD

SpeedyEric
Guest

He’s probably crying, because Doug is bitching about the Transformers films and the Star Wars Prequel Trilogy …AGAIN.

Aussieroth
Guest

The TF films needs to be bitched about. People need to stop seeing them so that a good director can come in and take over!

SpeedyEric
Guest

This is what I’m talking about. The hate people have against this series has gone overrated.

No, they just suck that much.

The moment I saw Phantom Menace was on the list, I skipped over that part of the review. There is absolutely nothing I ever need to hear anyone say about that movie ever again, especially when he only gave Highlander 2 an honorable mention, and didn’t even mention Star Trek V, Exorcist 2, Matrix Reloaded, The Fly 2, Speed 2, Octopussy, or Halloween 6. Plus his pick for #1 violated his own rule that the original had to be good, since the original Troll sucked.

Rocketboy1313

I laughed. Every. Single. Time.
It might be the funniest thing he’s done in months.

falloutncfan

Yeah. Doug should have known using one of Brad’s snuff films wasn’t a good idea.

archanix

Guys watch Video about Blair witch 2 made by “Good, Bad, Flicks”. It explains it all you want to know and creator seems like awesome guy. Next time Doug, use google by making next video.

Edit. How is that possible that you never bring up the fact Doug that John Belushi died and the movie Blues Brothers 2000 was made just to bring spirit that life goes on. It wasn’t good movie but why do you ignore something so simple and prise movie over one mans life?

MLPFan91
Guest

No fan of the Blues Brothers asked for it (since it was only half. There was no reason for the band to get back together. It didn’t even have John Belushi (who passed); hell, even his younger brother James “Jim” Belushi is a rotating member as “Brother” Zee Blues and performed with Dan Aykroyd.

archanix
Guest

Somehow both Doug videos ignore this fact. How can you do review and ignore most important fact about it?

archanix
Guest

Or maybe you are right and Creators are less important than fans.

Potterfan
Guest
If the point of Blues Brothers 2000 was to honor John… it failed. If it was trying to say life goes on, why not make it at some point between 1982 and 1990 when maybe that message could work, when they could probably sell us on the idea that this is a movie about life going on while the memory of Belushi was fresh. No, the movie was made because Blues Brothers 2000 seemed like a cool title and nostalgia was kicking in, it wasn’t to honor John Belushi. If anything, it reminded people that he is not someone you… Read more »

go watch the GoodBadFlicks video on Blair Witch. He pretty much explains how the studio ruined the movie during editing.

yeap, the original idea was kinda subtle which I did not expect

Jaws 3D instead of Jaws 4: the Revenge? 3 is at least watchable.

Didn’t 3 introduce the voodoo shark curse?

I remember when the one Transformer came out that everyone was complaining about being racist (I haven’t watched any of the sequels) I was in a local bagel shop and some 20 year old hipster douche was going on and on how great the racism was. Yeah, he was happy about it and saying how he “laughed and laughed” when “the n**** characters” died and kept on saying a bunch of racist bullshit. It took all my willpower to not go over and dump hot coffee in his crotch. I should’ve, I really should’ve, but he wasn’t worth going to… Read more »

Revenge of the Sith implied the Emperor’s master made Anikin from experimenting on the force.

Ya know #11 got nominated for Best Picture!

Kingofthedragons27

Similar deal with Phantom Menace, I’d say—they just weren’t willing or able to accept that it wasn’t a great film at that time.

osakayumu
Guest

Or they legitimately had a different opinion. *GASP*

Snorgatch Pandalume
Guest

At least Phantom Menace wasn’t just a repeat of the previous films.

Jasmine
Guest

Shark Tale got nominated for Best Animated Feature. Does that make it a good movie? No.

firefly4f4
Guest

What, no hatred for any of the Star Trek sequels?

JamiSings
Guest

That’s cause the original Star Trek sequels can never be as bad as the reboots.

Corey46
Guest

You never saw Star Trek V and Star Trek Nemesis.

JamiSings
Guest

Actually I have and they’re far superior to the Star Wreck reboots.

Fulchrum
Guest

They’ve had one bad flick, and it was only bad in as much as it failed to be as good as the originals best flick.

JamiSings
Guest

The reboots are all bad. Bad writing. Bad casting. Bad directing. Bad everything. They’re racist, homophobic, and sexist. Truthfully they should never have been made.

Devil's Advocate
Guest

how are they racist, sexist and homophobic? and pretty much everyone agrees Beyond is good and the characters are now starting to act like the Prime Timeline characters.

firefly4f4

I was expecting at least an dishonourable mention for “The Final Frontier” or “Insurrection” (which I know Doug, Linkara, and I think is the worst).

Follow up comment: I’ve never seen any of the Godfather movies but I still somehow knew the pull me back in line. I’ve also never seen any movies from most of the other franchises that were on this list. I would agree with you on the second Transformers movie. I HATED that one for the jokes. I like all the others though. I get why people don’t like X-Men Origins: Wolverine but I don’t mind it. I feel the same way about X-Men 3. I love Spiderman 3. I liked Terminator Genisys. The only sequels I really agree with you… Read more »

WHAT THE FUCK IS WRONG WITH YOU CRITIC EVERY GOD DAMN TIME I SEE SOMETHING HAS TO DO WITH SEQUELS YOU BASH ON TRANSFORMERS OH THEY ARE ALL WAYS THE SAME WHAT THE FUCK ITS AUTOBOTS VS DECEPTICONS THAT’S THE HOLE FUCKING IDEA IF YOU DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE HOLE CONCEPT WITH TRANSFORMERS THEN DO NOT REVIEW THEM YOU SELF RETCHES ASSHOLE GO FUCK YOUR SELF!!!!!!!!!!!!!

MountCDOSgamer
Guest

One of the reasons Doug loves the first film is because he was a fan of the 80’s cartoon, so accusing him of not understanding Transformers is really, really unfair.

Devil's Advocate
Guest

well to be fair, there is a lot more to the franchise then the 80s cartoon and it wasn’t even the first part of the franchise.

and the films only have loose ties to G1, it’s not in the same continuity family and in-story, it’s not in the same section of the multiverse.

SpeedyEric
Guest

EXACTLY. Now, can we PLEASE stop hating on Michael Bay, and instead hate on someone who matters, like Supreme Leader Trump?

Rocketboy1313
Guest

This is a movie review series. They review movies. He is making a list. And it is on the list.
None of this has anything to do with Trump.

So, what the fuck are you talking about.

No, Bay deserves the hate.

And? Even compared to other incarnations of Transformers, the live action movies are quite boring.

What I am talking about is that he kept on going that they are the same Movie witch is fucking annoying if you look back at the Original Generation 1 Cartoon Series they were like how the movies are now just live action there some good once(Age of extinction was actually pretty good some bad once (Revenge of the Fallen sucked really hard) and by saying they all Sucks its giving an unfair bias of the films in a hole but Micheal Bay is trying hard really hard and he said if this Last Knight dose not please everyone he… Read more »

I’m not sure if you were paying attention to why Doug said he doesn’t like the Transformers sequels, but he said the reason he doesn’t like them is they hardly offered anything new and fresh, something which the 80’s cartoon did a lot. There was an episode where Megatron borrowed the abilities of his Decipticons to cheat in a duel with Optimus prime, an episode where the Decepticons discovered a gold coating that made them almost invincible, an episode where the Transformers are on a planet inhabited by aliens that are even larger than them, and a whole lot more… Read more »

Remember your punctuation to help with clarity in conveying your concepts. “What the fuck is wrong with you, Critic?” That little hook/dot symbol is what implies you are asking a question.

“Whole” vs. “Hole”: “Whole” is the word you want. “Hole” is just a big empty space you can fall into. Like your mouth.

It’s spelled “self-righteous asshole,” and “yourself” is one word, not two words.

Go back to school.

#8- Sounds like that dreadful Wolverine anime prequel they had on G4. THAT was absolutely TERRIBLE! The only saving grace was Steve Blum, and they couldn’t even get him to play WOLVERINE!!

11. Haven’t seen it and I was never able to get into the originals, sorry.
10. Haven’t seen it or the original but seen his review of it many times.
09. Have their moments but yeah they’re pretty dumb.
08. Oh Yeah.
07. Never seen it but the original was pretty good.
06. Definite yes but I always thought the follow up was worse.
05. Makes the one before it almost look good but it wasn’t.
04. Follow up is worse but yeah it’s easy to see why.
03. Well of course.
02. Dear God why?
01. Haven’t seen it

If you enjoy so-bad-it’s-good movies you definitely must watch #1! My advice is gather some friends, get beer and pizza and see it. You’ll laugh your ass off!

Goat Boy

Clerks II? Really?

Anyway, I would throw in Trial of Billy Jack. The first two movies I enjoy, but that one is just long, boring, and preachy as hell.

Doug, I can’t believe you left out the Neverending Story 2/3!

SpeedyEric

He had to make room so he could rant about the Transformers movies …AGAIN.

Ergotth
Guest

Because at least NES ended in a mediocre sequel and an insultingly bad third movie, but the “Bayformers” sucked all the way from 1st to 4th and THEY STILL WANT TO MAKE A 5TH! I’m sorry…but you can’t have 4 movies where the transformers do something dumb, the military is not only overly glorified but a bunch of hypocrites being a thorn on thye side of the autobots and the human characters are completely obnoxious and useless!!

SpeedyEric
Guest

This is exactly what I’m talking about. Seriously, the hate has gone overrated.

Zyrosis
Guest

People keep giving you reasons why they hate the Transformers movies, yet all you do as a form of rebuttal is to claim that the hatred is overrated? How about explaining your side. Give some reasons as to why you believe they’re not bad movies, reusing the same plot points every single time.

Blayshy

Dude, they already told you why.
You just won’t listen.

“Underworld: Awakening”
Yes, many considered that the franchise as a hole wasn’t good to begin with. That’s something that even the fans like me acknowledge. But we enjoy it anyway.
Except this one. Even for the ones that enjoy a franchise like this, this movie was to bad! It abandoned everything the previous movies did to let us just at the beggining again, abandoned many of the mythos stablished by the previous films, and worst of all: made the action boring.

MountCDOSgamer
Guest

You were kind of cheating with the last one. Trolls 2 wasn’t even supposed to be a sequel. It was originally called “Goblins”, but it was renamed “Trolls 2” for the American release at the last moment to piggy-back off of the first Trolls movie, which wasn’t even that big of a hit any way, so that’s another way you were cheating with it.

BuzzDee
Guest

Good Point, I thought exactly the same.

Snorgatch Pandalume
Guest

Exactly. The first Troll was not loved or successful. It was a lame, pointless, boring, completely forgettable little movie. By putting its (non)sequel on the list, Doug violated his own rule that the original had to be good.

okay I’m confused…how exactly are we supposed to watch these videos right away always get a blank screen and no explanation as to do I need to subscribe for something or what?

The Ice Age sequels. The first one was not a masterpiece by any means but I still liked it. It had some good jokes, I got into the characters a little bit, the animation kinda throw me off but it was fine at that time and didn’t bother me that much. And Scrat was (AND STILL IS) the best part. The sequels clearly overstayed their welcome and have no reason to exist other than to make quick money. And the most painful thing about it is the animation. Why the fuck are they putting so much effort into these good… Read more »

ikr? I would trade ALL Ice age sequels (ok, minus the second, I liked) for ONE sequel for Robots.

The Real Silverstar
Guest

On top of that, the human race has evidently gone extinct in the Ice Age films. There were humans in the first movie, but in all of the subsequent outings, it’s nothing but animals. They keep pumping in more characters, anachronistic pop-culture references and cliched story lines, but they never address what happened to the people in this universe. A minor nitpick I realize, but it’s still something that bugs me about those films.

You know these sequels are bad when Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III never made NC’s list 😛

That’s so bad, it’s kinda hilarious.

don’t know if that makes Jar Jar from Episode 1 okay but I read the actor who voiced him was playfully mocking his own family. it just seems that too often, it’s white people saying things are offensive to blacks/Hispanics/etc and we don’t hear actual black/Hispanics/etc complaining. and another bad thing about X-Men 3 is the portrayal of Magneto. at least when Wolverine and the X-Men killed his own people for a perceived greater good, he seemed to actually regret but consider it something that had to be done. X3 Megneto was callus about the whole thing. and Terminator Geniseys… Read more »

I’m black and I’ve never found Jar-Jar Binks to be racially insensitive, just annoying and not funny. I was never offended by Jar-Jar because he doesn’t represent me or my ethnicity.

despite how bad an X-men movie can be, Magneto was always a kickass character. With TWO kickass actors!

How can you have Troll 2 and not include the “classic” scene:
