Live-ac­tion:

  • (1932; re­view)
  • (2014; mock­u­men­tary of con­tem­po­rary vam­pires in the slacker vein, What We Do is bet­ter than it sounds be­cause of a sur­pris­ingly thought­ful de­pic­tion of the dull­ness and vex­a­tions of such a life.)
  • (1986; firmly in the “so bad it’s good” clus­ter, this is an in­tensely ’80s-ish mar­tial arts melo­dra­ma, com­plete with a frame story which is en­tirely for­got­ten by the end­ing, which avoids in­suffer­abil­ity by be­ing low-key sub­ver­sive hu­mor where bum­bling pro­tag­o­nist Kurt Rus­sell is re­ally the side­kick to his Asian part­ner who does most of the work)
