    So was Strange Brew.

    That doesn't mean that they were not fundamentally stupid films, at heart.

    Cameron's Space Pocahontas and Abraams's Star Trek Into Darkness which was nothing more than a The Wrath Of Khan remake and a very bad one at that.
    Almost everyone who played in it played like they were participating in a amateur school performance.

    While I can't say I consider them stupid, I think the Star Wars prequels could fit on the list; very divisive as films, but the visuals are incredibly good, both in design and for telling the story.

    I don't know; it was a dumb movie to be sure, but I didn't find the visuals to be anything to write home about; we've seen stuff on that scale before and since.

    I have to ask if you saw it in 3D at the theaters. Because it was a technological breakthrough in 3D film making.
    There came a time when the Old Gods died! The Brave died with the Cunning! The Noble perished locked in battle with unleashed Evil! It was the last day for them! An ancient era was passing in fiery holocaust!

    I will give Phantom Menace credit for this: Naboo was a very pretty looking planet. I'd watch it again just for the visuals. Keep in mind, I hated the movie itself.
    Now listen to me, Clark! This great strength of yours--you've got to hide it from people or they'll be scared of you!

    Superman Returns. Basically a rehash of the first Superman film, right down to the musical score, but everyone in it sucked all to hell. To call Brandon Routh a poor man's Clark Kent would be an insult to indigent males; Kevin Spacey couldn't touch Gene Hackman's jock as Lex Luthor; and I don't even remember who played Lois Lane. Just a crapstorm all around.

    What's that you're saying? STRANGE BREW is deliberate in its appearance of being stupid, yet actually being quite clever. There are all kinds of jokes within jokes, references to other things, multiple levels of meaning, sight gags.

    On top of that, the screen writer, Steve De Jarnatt, used the money he made from STRANGE BREW to film his magnum opus MIRACLE MILE.

    Kill Bill, Valerian and most Star Wars movies made after 83.

    Avatar is the template for a thread like this.....I remember being amazed by the visuals but thinking the movie, itself, was just OK. I was excited to get the bluray, and when it finally came out I was bored to tears. It's almost unwatchable without that 3-D experience in the theaters.

    Sounds like you just described Zack Snyder's entire filmography.

    Strange Brew is a different type of animal and falls in the likes of Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure or Dumb and Dumber, don't get me wrong I love those films but Streets of Fire was not in that kind of absurdity, if you thinks its a stupid film because of the one man vs an army .. well that's basically any general action film .. I don't see why Streets of Fire alone would fall in the stupid category.

    - They don't just say "Forget the reward...", and get Ellen out of the state.
    - Raven actually lets Tom leave The Battery in one piece.
    - Raven agrees to a "One On One..." fight instead of just burning things to the ground.
    - The Bombers actually honor Raven's deal.

    It's all pretty stupid. Good, but stupid.

    While I would agree that the execution is not stupid, the movie is incredibly stupid.

    The boys survive being underwater in a van by sucking the air out of beer bottles. That's stupid.

    Again...

    Good, but stupid.
