    Street Fighter is watchable for precisely 2 reasons.

    1 - Kylies ass.
    2 - The preposterously camp potrayal of M.Bison by Raul Julia (sorry that should read mmmmmmMMMMMMmmmmmmm Bison). It's pure comedy

    FTFY. 2 was 'The Road Warrior'. I hope you meant 2 and not 3 btw, 3 was just a glorified Tina Turner music vid.

    EDIT: just remembered another one, Machete. Utterly ridiculous and awesome because of it :D

    Machete is hilarious
    And anything with Jason Statham in is a solid action film in my opinion :D

    +1 Statham seems to be the only cheesy action film man of his generation. So on that note Crank 1 & 2.

    if you can get ahold of this movie.. it's comedy gold- including a sock puppet dragon and bats on strings

    my favorite b flick of all time.. they even recycle midgets in this one

    bo looks like he can't wait for the movie to end too.. in the fight scenes he looks like he just drank a couple bottles of hooch and belly flops into a river on a dive scene.. the only reason think they didn't retake is because they had no budget.. the special effects are all from stock footage used in other movies xD

    Generally +1 to this, with the exception of Trasporter 3. That make-out-with-the-ugly-ginger scene ruins it.

    On that note:
    Anything by Uwe Boll:
    In the Name of the King, Far Cry, Postal, Blood Rayne

    Definitely Machete and Shoot 'Em Up.

    Transporter 1,2 & 3, Rush Hour trilogy, Predators, AvP and AvP Requiem, RED, Payback.

    Any of the pre-Hollywood Jackie Chan films are usually worth a watch as well.

    Not exactly a brain dead flick but I got Minority Report on Blu Ray a few days ago. I'm guessing most people have seen it, but it's pretty good anyways.

    The Big Hit. The girl was awesome. Same with the first transporter.

    Crank is hilarious though.

    no, not enough action + being a Brit i can say British films for the most part are rubbish.

    the last good one i saw was Dog Soldiers.

    You could always try Priest.
    It's weird matrix meets borderlands stuff with weird Giger looking Vamps in it.
