Boondock Saints

This has to be quite possibly the best bad film ever. It was critically panned, but currently has a huge cult following on video. Very quotable and bizarre at the same time.

Granted it's not high brow cinema, but it does have it's charm. It reminded me of a superhero movie without the capes. If you haven't seen it yet I suggest you do.

"And shepherds we shall be, for thee my lord, for thee. Power hath descended forth from thy hand, that our feet may swiftly carry out thy command. We shall flow a river forth to thee, and teeming with souls shall it ever be. E Nomini Patri, E Fili, E Spiritu Sancti." - Boondock Saints.

Ah, the Boondock Saints. Love that movie. Saw it back when it first came out on video. When it came out on DVD a year or two ago, it attained this cult following that just made me laugh.

The director, Troy Duffy, was an overnight sensation who went from bartender to filmmaker instantly, thanks to Harvey Weinstein. However, he ruined his sudden career by being a pompous ass to everyone in the business. A documentary was made called "Overnight" that you might find interesting (I haven't watched it - yet).
