I don't know if you can call Jerry Maguire a chickflick, but I love that movie. And im as GUY as they come. Even so, i love the part where he has her at hallo. To name some of the crummy movies I dig:
-D2: The Mighty Ducks
-Eurotrip
-Joy Ride (The one with Steve Zahn..)
-National Treasure
-Armageddon
and the list goes on..

The Toxic Avenger. Period. Although that falls squarely into the so-bad-it's-good category.

I suppose a VHS copy of Mandingo is my guiltiest pleasure, closely followed by 2-disk Special Edition of Armageddon :oops:

Who am I kidding? The worst guilty pleasure in my collection is Eugenie: The Story Of Her Descent Into Perversion, that Christopher Lee, erm, "classic".........

I took my 19 year old daughter to see "Grandma's Boy" last Christmas and we laughed our asses off. On the day the unrated version came out on dvd I was at Target to get it.

I'm also a sucker for Armageddon, Dave and Cousins.

Here's mine: Young Guns. :oops: Even more embarassing is the fact that the only reason I haven't bought Young Guns II is because I'm hoping there'll be an SE someday! :lol:

So let's hear 'em!


You know, I was just listening to Blaze of Glory and I was thinking to myself "Self, you know Young Guns II is probably one of the greatest westerns ever made. I'd even rank it ahead of Unforgiven."

Then I punched myself in the throat for even thinking such a thing.

Club Dread is a darn good fun flick. I bought it thinking it would be total dross, and was pleasantly surprised to enjoy it. The pac-man maze, classic.

Spaceballs (f*ck yes)
Thumb Wars (if anyone else has this movie, they are my best friend)
Invader Zim Box Set (the one in the house... Hell yeah)
Alice in Wonderland special edition (I bought it for 3 reasons: Chesire Cat, Walt Disney high on acid, and the original Thru the Mirror Mickey short unedited on DVD for my unlimited watching... Thru the Mirror OWNS)

and finally...

GODZILLA (1998): Screw the wooden acting, I love this movie for one reason: the destruction scenes. Zilla was AWESOME. Sh*t, at least it's better than Godzilla 2000 (good God, 2000 was a horrible movie year... Godzilla 2000, Fantasia 2000, Dracula 2000)... I mean, c'mon, Godzilla vs. tin-foil UFOs? GZ 2000 sucked! Now, Godzilla: Final Wars, THAT movie was BRILLIANT! Great way to round off the series, Toho! And I'm glad they decided to not end the series but instead retire it for a while, great decision. I loved Final Wars. Though Monster X wasn't my favorite GZ enemy ever (Mechagodzilla owns!), that doesn't mean Final Wars wasn't a good movie.

How can you consider Mallrats a guilty pleasure? Surely you should be proud? Mine sits alongside my clerks special edition.

Also in the collection is Jand and Silent Bob. Now this isn't a DVD, but a *ahem* dodgy super video cd I was given by a friend. The best part of this is the fact it's a different cut of the movie??Different music (better by far) and some different scenes and cuts. This was got while the film was still at the cinema. I am thinking of getting the film on DVD, even though it's bad, just to see if the scenes I have are in the extras, and maybe learn why they were cut. The music thing is very odd, maybe they didn't get the rights. Any info on this is welcomed.

Funny for the most, little too childish in parts, and worked more as sketches than a well written movie. Didn't flow well.

^That's probably why I liked it - because it wasn't really a movie, more like individual bursts of funny in seperated scenes.

But that was how Clerks was, for the most part, it was a bunch of scenes that had one underlining story. That's how most Smith movies go.

I'm with doglips, I LOVE Clueless. I've probably watched it about 100 times, and I still feel like I haven't quite milked it dry yet. Cher and Donna and everyone else are all just so scrumptious. And it came out just early enough not to fall back into evil-hearted spunk-drink jokes. It's funny that my two favourite teen movies were directed by Amy Heckerling, and they came out almost 2 decades apart (plus she's got to be one of the most gorgeous directors alive. After Lucas of course).

Why is that a guilty pleasure movie? Its one of my favorite DVDs in my collection!! I dont feel guilty about liking it! Its an exploitation film masterpiece IMO. Not because of the rape scenes, because its just a really brilliantly directed, daring shocker.

Seeing how in the time it took me to write this on Tangerine's thread some Mod went and locked it, I'm posting this here.

So there.

Maybe you can quickly re-edit the title and save the thread - what about the DVD's that inexplicably you have and yet don't like. They aren't even a guilty pleasure.

For example - how PEARL HARBOR ever made it on to my shelf I'll never know - yet there it is, just sitting there.

I even watched it once.

It was like vomiting through my eyes, backwards.

It was either an unwanted present or one of those random DVD's I bought whilst out of it - sort of a "heh heh heh - I wonder what I'll make of this when I wake up later today...maaaan, I'm gonna be sooo pissed at myself for buying it...."

I mean...that's normal behaviour isn't it? We all do it right?

OK - then I'm sticking with the unwanted present thing.

Oh - and yes, as a movie it sucked. Dang - as a fucking coaster it sucked, what on earth am I saying...
