I'm sure this has been a topic on this message board a million times, but I'm new here so indulge me. <br><br>For me, my number one movie cheepnis discovery of all time is 'Soldier of Fortune' starring Brandon Lee (Bruce's son, who was also in The Crow). If you see this movie in the racks then buy it, you WILL NOT regret it! The movie opens with a montage of a guy loading weaponry like in Schwarzennegar's 'Commando' to the soundtrack of a song called (I am not joking) 'Mercenary Man', and then goes on to a dimond theft by international terrorists! Has anyone seen this movie? It is toooo funny.<br><br>Other cheep-ass movies:<br><br>Toxic Avenger<br>They Live<br>

Dude, I was just treated to some FINE cheepnis film.  It was called I Worhip His Shadow, I believe it's from the "Lexx" TV series that probably no one watched.  The movie is outstandingly horrible and the producers know it... the writing and the costume design is awesomely horrendous.  Please look into this filthy gem!

One of the "best" exploitation flicks, ever. Funny as hell, even without the commentary track. I also own the slightly better (while still being really bad) anti-drug flick "Marihuana" which is on a "double-feature disc" with "The Terror of Tiny Town," an equally hilarious bad movie that has been considered by many to be the worst western of all time. Nothing says cheepnis like these flicks! Get the colorized DVD of "Reefer Madness" for premium audio/video quality, and a great commentary track by Mike Nelson of Mystery Science Theater 3000.

And speaking of Bruce Lee, I own a few of the "Brucesploitation" films made after his death, starring guys who look nothing like Lee but have a last name similar to his (Bruce Li; Bruce K.L. Lea). Perhaps the funniest out of these pictures is "Bruce Lee Fights Back From the Grave," featuring a shot of Bruce K.L. Lea jumping out of a grave marked "Bruce Lee" in true kung-fu style. Fuckin' hilarious!!! :D
