"Man of Steel" (2013) has a couple of good ones.  The Scene where Superman is fighting with Zod whom is trying to create a "2nd Krypton" out of Earth.

 

Superman....Krypton had it's chance

 

The next is when Colonel Hardy did a kamikazi dive with the plane carrying Superman's arrivial  craft to create a quantum singularity.

 

Colonel Hardy to Foara-Ul......You're right, a good death does have it's own reward.

"Harlem Nights" (1989) 2 one liners within the same gambling scene at the beginning.

 

Sugar Ray....Wait man look, you took the shot, you lost. I mean we'd had paid you if you won but you lost.  Now take that big a__ home and brush that tooth.

 

Sugar Rays response after the kid shoots the mad loser.....GD, I guess he does has bad luck around kids!

"I want more sand in the desert!"

 

- Vittorio De Sica directing in After the Fox

 

This one's great, a bad movie within a bad movie (which oddly enough is pretty entertaining).

 

Another one that fits these parameters is "Best Worst Movie", a documentary of how they made Troll 2.  Troll 2's ratings ended up in the toilet, but the documentary got a fairly high rating and much higher popularity on its own.
