Call them what you will... guilty pleasures, awfully good films or bubblegum (something sweet and colorful that's not very good for you). Bad superhero movies hold a special yet embarrassing place in my heart. In no particular order, here are 5 superhero movies I'm ashamed to admit I enjoy.

5. Fantastic Four: Rise of the Silver Surfer

Awww, what an unfortunate shit storm of a disaster. This movie chocks up a lot of sins. One in particular is turning the planet eating Galactus into a fucking hurricane. The main problem with this movie is the fact that I love the Silver Surfer so much that I'll watch anything where he is depicted. It just sucks that the one time we get a chance at seeing him on the silver screen (pun intended), he barely does anything. He's sick most of the time and it's hard to really root for him.

THE TWO MAIN REASONS WHY I LIKE THIS CRAP:

This part:

Hehe.

And this part:

We should all be able to agree that despite this awkward, sloppy mess of a film, Chris Evans totally kills it as Johnny Storm.

4. Batman and Robin

This movie sucks. I had to throw out my McDonalds brand movie memorabilia after seeing it because I was just that disappointed. Whoever saw Mr. Freeze in comics and cartoons and thought to themselves, "Arnold Schwarzeneggar should play him!" is dumb. Like, really dumb.

THE MAIN REASON WHY I LIKE THIS CRAP:

All the Mr. Freeze puns. So deliciously bad, it gives me a brain freeze every time I hear them.

3. Ghost Rider

Ugh... I remember when this movie came out and I forcibly dragged my non-geek roommate to the theaters. The movie was so bad, he moved out 3 days later. Sorry, Joseph.

THE TWO MAIN REASONS WHY I LIKE THIS CRAP:

Nicolas Cage's silly 'Wrath of Khan' inspired abs.

Sam Elliott as the Cowboy Ghost Rider and his fire horse.

Let's be honest, Sam Elliott's voice alone makes everything better. In this case, it couldn't save the movie.

2. The Punisher

I'm really torn with this one. I actually don't think it's THAT bad of a movie. It's corniness doesn't come close to the level of the previous 3 films. However, this movie just doesn't have that spark. It's a bit lackluster and its action scenes, while cool and clever, just don't really grab you by the balls and swing you around the room. It's interesting to see John Travolta attempt to play straight while his best friend in the movie pretends to be gay. How ironic.

THE THREE MAIN REASONS WHY I LIKE THIS CRAP:

This sick knife death.

The sheer impossibility of this ever happening.

Harry Heck, Johnny Cash's evil twin.

1. Howard the Duck

Alright, so this movie is really not bad. No, honest! It's a movie about a duck-humanoid thing from another dimension and it doesn't try to be anything BUT that! It's funny, entertaining and boasts some of the best special effects in an 80s movie. It's actually very underrated and under appreciated in my opinion.

THE MAIN REASON WHY I LIKE THIS CRAP:

Because duh.
