Hercules (1983)  
I went to my parents house on Friday so that i could meet up with mourning_cloak6 so that we could go to a wedding. While i was there the truly AWFUL Hercules with Lou Ferrigno was on. I remember watching this as a kid and liking it. Man, what was i thinking?!? EVERYTHING was bad. What made the acting even worse was the fact that it was dubbed over in Hercules tradition as all of the films were as well. This was filmed in Italy and written and directed by Louis Cozzi who was also the writer and director of the abomination Starcrash, but that's a whole different post all together. Picking on this film is easy, it's like kicking a man when he's down and you know he's been beaten yet you do it anyway. It's so bad you can't help but laugh. My fav bad scene which i had the pleasure of seeing again and has also been mentioned on IMDB is when he fights the bear which includes stock footage of a bear and someone in a REALLY bad bear suit for the fight scene. This bear is attacking his father and by the time he beats the living shit out of the bear he realizes his father is dead. In his rage and anger towards this he propels the bear into outer fucking space, i shit you not! My fav line?

"Will you help me witch?"

Even though it was dubbed i can just see Lou doing the lines with his hearing impairment. I can't help it.

Check out this bitchin' movie poster!

You're just jealous because Lou Ferigno has a manlier chest than you.

All I remember about this movie is his arm turning into ice and exploding.

Yeah, i was at my parents house long enough to see that scene too. He's reaching in to get an amulet and his arm freezes. The sorceress keeps telling him to use his "strength" and manages to make the ice on his arm explode.

Hey, if it has Sybil Danning in it it can't be all bad.

Unfortunately Sybil Danning does not a good movie make, hehe.
