What was the last mainstream camp classic?

Black Swan?

Sex and the City.

After Sunday, it's going to be Liz and Dick. I can't wait for this one.

Agree with r3

"The Paper Boy". Wait a year and it'll be on a double bill with "Polyester". It will actually cost McConnaughey the Oscar because he basically plays the same character as his much-lauded turn in "Killer Joe"- only this time not so good. Nicole dusts off her "To Die For" character, 15 years and bigger lips later. Zac Efron struggles as usual to portray a human.

Lee Daniels needs to do another raw ghetto story ASAP to redeem himself.

It will be what R2 stated as of Monday morning.

Is "The Paper Boy" the one where Matthew McConaughey plays the killer who has the fried chicken fetish? That looked impossibly disgusting.

R7, you're thinking of Killer Joe.

The Wicker Man (the remake, not the original)

Actually, almost anything Nic Cage has done in the past ten years would qualify

R3, I think a camp classic would have to be something you could sit through at least once.

I love Black Swan but there are a few unintentionally funny and way over the top scenes in it.

does a camp classic have to be poorly received the first time out?

by Anonymousreply 1411/25/2012

Black Swan was a piece of shit that took itself way, way too seriously. It's still unbelievable that Natalie Portman won for that.

by Anonymousreply 1511/25/2012

OP, 'Black Swan' was certainly not camp. What the fuck? Portman was indeed good at it but she should not be a cunt in her Oscar Acceptance Speech. She should thank her dancing double Sarah Lane, she thanked all but her. That was nasty, greedy and unkind of her. What a pharisaic bitch she was in her speech...lol.

Wait until LES MISERABLES opens.

We have a new winnah!

That is your stupid opinion.

This is the majority of the world's opinion, R21. Put your head back in the toilet and flush.

"A Dangerous Method". I walked in about 5 min. late to the film and Keira Knightley was already in fullblown Exorcist mode. A whole film based on a patient being cured by being whipped and fucked by Michael Fassbender.

So that's why it made over 300 million dollars, was nominated for 5 oscars, including picture and director and Portman won every best actress award? Because the whole world thought it was a piece of shit?

Anything based on a novel by Nicholas Sparks

If it's successful financially and won prizes, it MUST be a work of genius--everyone knows that!

A camp classic is something that is so bad that it's actually enjoyable to watch. SATC2 was just plain bad.

by Anonymousreply 2811/25/2012

Burlesque?

The Canyons, based on any one of the trailers, is bound to be one.

by Anonymousreply 2911/25/2012

Was The Paperboy ever released? I didn't see it playing at my local theater.

by Anonymousreply 3011/25/2012

"The Paperboy" was so much released as it briefly escaped.

Easy: Magic Mike

Magic Mike was a great movie, you're wrong!

People were turned off with the pee scene. Kidman might have got a backlash on that.

Anything with Hillary Swank.

I'm sure the makers of "Burlesque" were hoping it had camp value, but it doesn't. It's just boring.

Honestly, with so many weak nominees, I'm beginning to wonder if "Mommie Dearest" deserves the title. Has a single more recent film yielded half as many universally known quotes?

by Anonymousreply 3611/25/2012

r36 - I'd say "The Room" was the last big start-to-finish camp fest (if you define "camp" as an unintentional thing... I do).
