I personally enjoyed both movies, but Piranha 3D was the actually enjoyable one while Piranha 3DD was just so bad and ridiculous that it was entertaining.
I don't know any websites with reviews but Sy Fy has sort of taken the mantle for these horribly good movies like Mega Shark versus Giant Octopus. Here is an article about their rules for these bad movies.
And Ash, I'm talking about the first one, not 3DD, which I have not seen.
Listen, I love being inappropriate, but you have to earn it. This paint-by-numbers picture with false drama and middling action has next to nothing to justify its very existence. “Red Dawn,” on a fundamental level, is garbage.

One of my favorites is Ebert's review of The Village. The conclusion...
Eventually the secret of Those, etc., is revealed. To call it an anticlimax would be an insult not only to climaxes but to prefixes. It's a crummy secret, about one step up the ladder of narrative originality from It Was All a Dream. It's so witless, in fact, that when we do discover the secret, we want to rewind the film so we don't know the secret anymore.
And then keep on rewinding, and rewinding, until we're back at the beginning, and can get up from our seats and walk backward out of the theater and go down the up escalator and watch the money spring from the cash register into our pockets.

OP - stop what you're doing right now and head over to Amazon and read the reviews for a movie called The Room
Then find it and rent it (Netflix has it). It is, by far, the hands down worst and best movie of all-time. I cried 4-5 times throughout because its so bad its hysterical.
For example, if you read his review of The Bourne Legacy, he wrote the following:
First of all, he is talking about the final, climatic scene of the movie here. Thanks for giving away how it all ends, Roger! Secondly, he completely misses what was happening in the scene. This was not a "determined undercover cop" chasing them, it was another Supersoldier who had been ordered to kill Bourne and who accepts his orders without question (a bit like a Terminator). Ebert completely misunderstood the entire climax of the film! I am telling you, he had to be asleep to miss what was going on because it was pretty darn obvious to me and even my 12-year-old son got it just fine.The motorcycle chase takes place in Manila, after Cross and Shearing steal a cycle, the police give chase, and one particularly determined undercover cop with dark aviator glasses persists beyond all reason. Since he doesn't have a single word of dialogue, it's impossible to say if he has any idea how important Cross and Shearing are, but he keeps coming like the Energizer Bunny.
In fairness, Bourne Legacy was a pretty darn mediocre movie and falling asleep in it would hardly be a sin, but I see this kind of thing often enough from Ebert for me to really not trust his judgement on films any more. Look at his site, he gives almost everything between 2.5 and 4 stars. There just isn't enough variety in his reviews for me to be able to tell what is really worth seeing and what should be skipped.
My go to reviewer these days is Matt Goldberg of Collider... who happens to be a friend of mine... but who also happens to be a wonderful reviewer who really sees the importance in films and the nuance that makes a movie good or bad or great.

Somewhat related to the original post, one of life's guiltier pleasures: reading Washington Post tv critic Tom Shales skewer something bad on television. He had one piece on Brittany Spears singing on the Mall before a Redskins/Jets season-opening game ...
The last Twilight is actually getting more good reviews than bad, I guess after 5 tries they had to figure out how to do something right. I did like this comment though from Bruce Kirkland.
http://jam.canoe.ca/Movies/Reviews/T...sentertainmentThis is a rousing climax to the series. But, if you hated it from the beginning, there is no reason here to change your mind
It looks like the Hobbit isn't coming in with rave reviews, but for the most part they have been positive. This one, however, wasn't. I love the last line.
Eek...Offering very little we haven't already seen and a horrible decision to use a frame rate that makes much of it unwatchable, this is less a faithful adaptation of Tolkien's "The Hobbit" as much as Jackson trying to recapture the magic of the "Lord of the Rings" movies and failing miserably. In other words "An Unexpected Journey" may as well be "The Phantom Menace" and God help us all if the next two movies aren't better than this one.
Whew, you have got to read the total trashing that Variety gave to Grown Ups 2. Yikes!!
The review starts like this...
How awesome is the final line of that paragraph!?!!??The first scene in “Grown Ups 2” depicts a deer urinating directly onto Adam Sandler’s face. The penultimate scene (spoiler alert) depicts the very same deer apparently castrating Taylor Lautner. These bookends are not only the film’s highlights, they also represent the closest it comes to establishing any sort of narrative throughline. Among the slackest, laziest, least movie-like movies released by a major studio in the last decade, “Grown Ups 2” is perhaps the closest Hollywood has yet come to making “Ow! My Balls!” seem like a plausible future project. It is all but guaranteed a strong opening weekend.
And Variety is not alone. At this moment, Grown Ups 2 is at a sterling 0% on Rotten Tomatoes. 18 reviews in, 18 reviews that hate the film. Among the better lines --
Though Grown Ups seemingly left nowhere to go but up, Grown Ups 2 speeds downhill in a hurry.Like most Adam Sandler movies, it's exactly like most Adam Sandler movies.In the first five minutes, a deer walks into the star's bedroom and urinates on his face. It's all downhill from there.-Jason "I almost want to see this train wreck... almost" EvansYes, it's time for another visit to the Adam Sandler Death-of-Cinema Fun Factory, the big-screen version of a terrible sitcom where laugh tracks are replaced by the co-stars chuckling at their own awful material.
“Grown Ups 2” is perhaps the closest Hollywood has yet come to making “Ow! My Balls!” seem like a plausible future project.
I thought "Ow! My Balls!" was the alternate title for the Jack*ss movies, which apparently consist of 90 minutes of idiots getting hit in the balls
