I posted this in the the underrated movies thread:


Fantasy Mission Force. Just look at the plot synopsis from Wikipedia:

Quote:
Nominally set during World War II, the film begins with a Japanese attack on an Allied military camp, which a map reveals to be somewhere in Canada. After four Allied Generals, including one who introduces himself as Abraham Lincoln, are taken hostage by the Japanese troops, Lieutenant Don Wen (Jimmy Wang Yu) is called in to organize a rescue effort (rejected candidates for the job include Roger Moore's James Bond, Snake Plissken, Rocky Balboa and Karl Maka from the Hong Kong film Aces Go Places).

With promises of a huge reward, Don Wen rounds up a group of misfits for the job, which includes two kilt-wearing soldiers, a hobo (Old Sun), a supposed escape artist (Greased Lightning), con artist Billy, and the femme fatale Lily (Brigitte Lin), who sports knee-high red leather boots and a bazooka. En route to the Japanese base where the kidnapped Generals are being held (apparently located in Luxembourg according to the film), the group encounters two small time crooks, Sammy and Emily (Jackie Chan and Ling Chang), who follow them in hope that they will lead them to a cache of money.

As they continue on, Don Wen is seemingly killed in a surprise ambush by spear-wielding tribesmen, and soon the group is captured by a tribe of cannibalistic Amazons led by an effeminate man in a tuxedo. After obliterating the Amazon tribe the group spends the night in a haunted house full of hopping vampires (a traditional Chinese supernatural creature) before reaching their goal.

Once there they find the Generals held hostage gone and the base littered with the dead bodies of Japanese soldiers. Before the group can figure out what has happened they are attacked by sword and axe-brandishing Japanese Nazis riding in 1970s-era muscle cars (it is of note that the highly anachronistic cars are also painted with swastikas and Luftwaffe-style crosses).

I mean shoot, you can't beat that.

You haven't seen "WTF!?!?!" weird until you have seen branded.
It goes SOOOOO far left out of the blue, you are wondering if someone has inserted a gag reel,then slipped you acid mid-process

People confuse ODD or Silly with WEIRD it seems, this one is WEIRD
and before you say "OMG! THAT LOOKS AWESOME!!"...it's not.
It is simply weird as hell...

You guys are picking movies with my favorite soundtracks. I'm not sure why that's relevant to the movie itself, but still.

That movie is not weird. Implausible? Sure. Corny? Yes, especially for a Stephen King story. But weird? Nah. Plus the AC/DC songs throughout the movie just tie the whole thing together.

I watched it as a kid. That face on the truck was pretty scary. The only part of the movie that stuck with me was when Emilio had to push his way through the sewage pipes.

Another movie that was a bit weird was "Dark Crystal"

These movies I guess seems wierd for the young age I watched them.

There's several already listed that I'd put up there, but Southland Tales was really weird. Apparently there was a graphic novel that almost no one read that put the events of the movie in a better context, but just the movie on its own was bizarre.

However, it did have one of my favorite movie lines of all time in it:



And another scene that I really enjoyed (NSFW language):

You people are killing me here. Another excellent soundtrack, although the movie is a bit odd to say the least.

Mine had to be Date Movie. It was so stupid I walked out after only 15 minutes of watching it. Luckily I got a free movie ticket to come back and see another movie there for my troubles.

One night many years ago I watched Kung Pow: Enter the Fist followed by Pootie Tang...while on the LSD...don't think anything will be weirder than those for me.

When people say weird, I always think of....

Videodrome

a very odd 1980's sci-fi/horror Cronenberg flick featuring James Woods.
