10 Terrible Movies That Are Totally Awesome

Terrible movies that are totally awesome are the kind you either won’t admit to liking, or proclaim you like because you’re trying to be ironic. Terrible movies that are totally awesome are movies with cheesy-ass special effects, sensational plots and an extreme disregard for reality. Terrible movies are terrible, but they’re also awesome.

Every Halloween, when asked what I’m going to be, I’m always like “Yo I’m going to be Kevin Bacon from Footloose!” It’s one of my most overused jokes… ever. And I’ve never been Kevin Bacon from Footloose for Halloween. Anyways, I’m sure I’ll get some flack for calling Footloose a terrible movie, but I’m also calling it awesome! Because Footloose is really awesome. The story of a city boy with an affinity for tight jeans and dance choreography who moves out to the conservative countryside, Footloose is as corny as its midwstern setting is IRL – and for that it’s terrible – but it’s also incredibly endearing and 80s – and for that it’s awesome.
