10 years of Flick Filosopher: surviving bad movies in style

Thank god for Mystery Science Theater 3000, which made bad movies survivable. From my review of Highlander: Endgame:

I was prepared for crap — I was expecting it, and yes, even looking forward to some good laughs. And Highlander: Endgame, like its predecessor sequels to the sneakily charming Highlander, does not disappoint. It’s not Battlefield Earth-bad — you won’t need to call paramedics or anything — but it is Stigmata-bad, which means you can have a jolly good time if you put on your Mystery Science Theater 3000 cap and lob some snarky commentary at the screen.

And the crowd of Highlander geeks (I count myself amongst them) in the Friday late-night screening was as primed as my friends and I were. The boos and guffaws of contemptuous laughter started the moment Christopher Lambert’s name appeared in the credits, and didn’t end until the lights came up, 80 minutes later. They crammed a lot of bad, bad stuff into such a short flick.
