This time every year among all the film awards and nominations, there are films that are completely overlooked without even a slight mention in the running for such accolades.
FUBAR thought we should provide some justice for those films that deserve more recognition than the ‘experts’ have been dishing out…
Take a look at FUBAR’s Alternative BAFTA Winners…
1. Birdemic: Shock and Terror (2010)
Clearly a homage to Alfred Hitchcock’s Oscar nominated The Birds, this film for understandable reasons has been slated from every angle. But at least it tried. Let’s give this one an A* for effort.
2. Snakes On A Plane (2006)
With the film title itself being more than explanatory and featuring highly respected actor Samuel L. Jackson, neither were enough to stop the film from failing at the box office.
However, the literal selling point of this film makes it a simple, easy view for those who lack the brain capacity to understand anything more complex therefore generously catering for those of lesser intelligence. This film should’ve been more widely appreciated amongst critics and film-goers.
3. Taken (2008)
Providing us with arguably one of the best lines from a film of the 21st century, Liam Neeson’s delivery of the almost classic line should’ve been mentioned for some sort of accolade, instead he is sadly strung up like a puppet for our entertainment to constantly repeat the line wherever he goes.
We can just ignore the unnecessary sequels that followed.
4. Sharknado (2013)
Having redefined the whole “so bad, it’s good” kind of film according to Rotten Tomatoes, are we sure that Sharknado got the recognition it deserved?
5. The Room (2003)
Is it a drama romance? Is it a black comedy? Who knows? One thing we do know is that it’s bad. Such a bad film in fact that it’s often considered the worst film ever made however, something about it being so fucking awful, makes it so great to watch – can we get a re-count and consider it for best film?
