Machete. Gloriously, ridiculously rubbish.

Yet to see Machete Kills but I will soon.

Machete is a great shout !

I thought Hobo with a Shotgun would of been one of these, but it was just bad !

I think the reason Machete shines is because it was attempting to be a 'so bad it's good' film.

To be fair to DBAMTSCWDYJITH is a spoof, so really is meant to be bad as it a p*** of urban dramas like Boyz n the hood :)

I'd also include Best of the best 2 aswell :)

I know Menace probably does not count.

Best of the Best 2 I remember just not quite cutting it, but it's been a few years.

Has anyone else seen Avenging Force, it's basically the same cast as American Ninja.

IN fact American Ninja should be on there also

And

No Retreat no Surrender

and here is another Classic

The Last Dragon - 1985

Death Wish 3 - I love that movie, its literally the definition of so bad it's good.

I think some people may be missing the point of this forum, Movies do come down to taste so can never criticize, but for example Steven Seagals films should go in the catogory so bad they're bad, Commando is not a bad film, Commando is a classic. Machete I would not have on this list, but as I said before, it's all personal taste,

In my opinion for a film to fall into this genre, it needs to be low budget, and no real A list actors,

2 I can think of off the top of my head would be..

Deadly Prey

Shark Attack 3

Both try to be serious action movies but are more unintentional comedies, and can be rewatched over and over

Savage streets starring Linda blair as the leather clad, cross bow wielding high schooler who takes revenge on the gang members who raped her blind best friend. Exploitative 80s action at it's "so bad, it's good" best :)

OTT Joel silver produced actioner Ricochet starring Denzel washington as a young cop come attorney who is dealt the mother of all revenge acts by a f***** up John lithgow :)
