You make the call

It's been a while since I've seen a bad film. I've even watched a couple that I thought were going to be bad, but wound up being pretty good.

So I put it in your hands, dear readers. I have a selection of potentially bad films ready to go on my Netflix Instant queue for this weekend. Which one should I watch?

  • 88 Minutes - 88 Minutes of overacting by Al Pacino. Almost seems unfair to list any other films after that endorsement.
  • Traitor - I dig me some Don Cheadle, but I've read some pretty bad reviews about this one. Meaning the film was bad, not the review itself. One of these days I will learn to write, um, better.
  • Wargames 2: The Dead Code - Just kidding. I'm not watching Wargames 2. Ever! I don't care if you kids actually vote for it. I'm just amazed that someone made a sequel.
  • Surfer, Dude - Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson play surfers. Um, dude. Doesn't seem like much of a stretch to me.
  • Domino - The commercials for this one looked so annoying when it came out a couple of years ago. I can only imagine the film as equally annoying. But longer.
So there you have it. Vote in the comments section and I will watch whichever selection has the most votes by the time I get around to it (probably Friday around 11PM).

My fate is in your hands. Choose wisely.

UPDATE - OK, the masses (4 or 5 of you) have spoken. I'll watch Wargames 2. But first I'm gonna watch Surfer, Dude. Just because.

Well, I don't think I would put anyone through the misery of watching 88 Minutes, or having to sit through more than 30 mintues of Woody Harrelson and MM. So I would have to vote for Traitor or Domino. Of the two, Domino sounds worse.

Domino gets my vote.

Wow. I'd have to watch Wargames 2 just BECAUSE. WTF?! I never even knew it was made!
Other than that, they all sound crappy. Yer on yer own. :)

I enjoyed Domino. I'd suggest watching Wargames 2. That could be cheesy bad.

Yep. Wargames 2. There's only one choice in there. You owe it to us. For something.

Wow. 3 votes for Wargames 2. Unless something drastic happens in the voting (like actual people coming here to read this crap), then it looks like my choice is made.

And I only put it in there as a joke.

Domino was bad, but i wouldnt say grenadable...

88 minutes had a great idea, but the ending and the overracting JUST might put it in the grenade category..

Tally so far:
Domino - 1 vote
Wargames 2 - 3 votes
88 minutes - 1 vote
