Exactly. Road House is a gloriously ridiculous movie, with genuinely entertaining characters.

Movies like Crank and Shoot 'Em Up are just lame, contrived shit-fests.

I like movies like Road House or Tombstone, that tried to be good, failed, but wound up being entertaining anyway.

Camp could work when it's self-aware, look at the '60s Batman series, but you're right, most of the times, it doesn't. A lot of it relies on the popularity of the big star (Clive, The Swayze, Kurt Russell to name a few.) I'm sure when Big Trouble in Little China came out it was considered terrible, now it's a cult classic, so go figure. Same with Escape from New York. John Carpenter, you magnificent bastard.

I need to see Shoot 'Em Up before I make a firm opinion on it though.

I think you nailed it there. It's all in the design. What's the point of making purposefully over-the-top, crappy movies? It's an obvious cash-in on the latest trend. 15 years from now, nobody's going ot give a flying fuck about films like Shoot 'Em Up, and they'll just be remembered as boring crap.

And Tombstone was saved by some fantasticly on-the-ball performances, enough so to warrant my DVD purchase the other day. I love that film. Val Kilmer rocks my world.

And who's in Tombstone?

Kurt Russell.

This is getting a little frightening, guys.

How do you top a movie that boasts "I used to fuck guys like you in prison", "pain don't hurt", "right boot" "you're a bleeder" "kick a man in his knee and he'll drop like a stone" and "you're too stupid to have a good time"? (I may have paraphrased one of those but still)
