When it comes to movies, Netflix has one of the biggest libraries around today. With so many movies to choose from, you’ll run into some stinkers. If you let them, those cringeworthy films can be a good time. We look at some movies that are so bad, they’re surprisingly good.

Godzilla: Planet Of The Monsters

Animated sci-fi film Godzilla: Planet of the Monsters came at a bad time. Audiences were too busy wondering about the live action Godzilla that this fell under the radar.
