Guilty Pleasures

Army of Darkness
The Quick and the Dead
Young Guns
The 13th Warrior

Of course, I’m not sure if any of these really count, since I don’t feel particularly guilty for liking any of them! I’d also even go as far as to say that “The Quick and the Dead” is actually a good movie.

Oh I’d also like to add Judge Dredd

I keep going back to Broadway Danny Rose and Manhattan. When i watch them I feel the same bittersweet wash of glory and love as when I first saw them in a theater.

Why in the hell would you ever feel guilty about watching Manhattan?

Amazing Grace and Chuck

This came out when I was about 17, but despite the fact that I was too cool for school, this movie got me all choked up. I haven’t seen it since, and I have no doubt it doesn’t hold up. Even back then, I knew I was a sap, but the premise just got to me.

Yeah, I’m gonna have to go with Beastmaster.

Oh, how about Demolition Man? Ridiculous, but awesome movie.

Robot Monster. I first saw it on MST3K. I rented it to watch it without the voice overs. Then I got one of those 3AM TV shovelware movie compilations and there it was.

Which brings me to Last Man on Earth with Vincent Price.

And of course, any Ed Wood movie, especially the ones with Bela Lugosi.

Valley Girl

Hot Shots (the original, not the horrific Part Deux)

I would mention Chupacabra Terror, but it doesn’t really qualify for this thread. How can a movie starring John “Gimli” Rhys-Davies, Giancarlo “Gus” Esposito, and Chelan “Chelan” Simmons make anyone feel guilty for recognizing its awesomeness?


Yes, very good way to put it. I call it “gun porn”. ;)

Anyway, I looked through my collection and found some more

Crank 1 and 2
Flash Gordon
G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra
Hobo with a Shotgun
The Losers
Repo: The Genetic Opera
Smokin’ Aces
Snakes on a Plane

I think those count, right? ;)

How could I forget Flesh Gordon?

Heh, the guy who played Flash WAS a porn star. ;)

I have a deep and abiding love for two awful genres: Big wave surfing and Pimpumentaries. American Pimp, Riding Giants, Billabong Pipeline, etc. I guess I’m fascinated by personalities that are direct opposites of my own.

The Sword and the Sorcerer
The People under the Stairs

The Devil’s Advocate - Keanu Reeves “acting” + Al Pacino at his hammiest make for a good time.

Ooohhh, good call, that movie’s great.

So recently my girlfriend introduced me to George of the Jungle with Brendan Frasier. I was expecting to hate it, but god damned if that wasn’t a freaking hilarious movie. :)


I very much hated that movie! :D

I expected that to be my reaction as well.

I remember loving this movie, too.

“Oh no, George never bring Shep here!”
