Have to agree on Flash Gordon.

How is it that nobody has brought up Hudson Hawk?! Bruce Willis at his best, the musical scenes are classic. Aiello is one of my favorite sidekicks of all film in it.

Also:

The Adventures of Ford Fairlane
Ice Pirates
Waxwork and
Top Secret to name a few.
I always think, present company excluded of course, that there's something unpleasant lurking in people who avoid drinking, gambling, table talk and pretty women. People like that are either sick or secretly hate their fellow men.

Supertroopers - that movie has me in stitches, but strangely no-one I have shown it to find it funny at all.

I always found 'The Girl Next Door' a little better than it was given credit.

I also really liked the remade 'Dawn of the Dead.'

...I too, have often enjoyed Xanadu's weird mix of roller disco, busby berkely kind of greek mythology... and ELO.
...there is no reason to feel ashamed about zoolander ; it is truly hiarious: "orange mocha frappachinos!" "I'm a merMAN pops, a merMAN!"...and many others.
...Joe Dante's take on Gremlins is more fun (and more in keeping with it's b movie inspiration) than the original
...Hudson Hawke is hilarious - forget what you might have heard or read, watch it again.
the one I love, but am truly ashamed of, honesty? Armageddon (I'm not an american) - except for the animal crackers scene

OK, a few more:

Congo - this is the all-time great guilty pleasure for me

Spacehunter: Adventures in the Forbidden Zone - I believe this was in 3-D, and it has Molly Ronwald (in3-D!!)

Hiding Out - Jon Cryer goes undercover...at a high school! Mayhem ensues.

She's Out of Control - Tony Danza is an acting God. He make Laurence Olivier look like, well, Laurence Olivier.

Laurence Olivier's Othello - Olivier as freaky blackfaced soul-brother. You've just got to see it to believe it. You will never forget the jazzy-improv stylings of his epileptic fit (I'm not kidding!)

The majority of mine have been said, flash, last starfighter, and so many more. Funny to see so many with same shame.

One or two to add:

Trancers - Flik flak 3000 gadget

Beastmaster - hubba hubba redhead

Eliminators - terminator with tractor tracks. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0091003/

One I want to see, but too ashamed to shell out for: Starcrash

Armageddon is one of the best popcorn flicks of all time. if only that scene with Affleck, Tyler, and the animal cracker could be removed.

i really dig Legends of the Fall, which gets tons of hate here. what can i say, as 1 of 4 brothers the whole father-son-brother thing is a weak spot for me, and once you get past Pitts pretty-boy-long-flowing-locks, he actually does decent work in it, along with Hopkins.

btw, on the subject of bad movies we like, does anyone remember a movie that came out back in '86-'87, Quiet Cool? a mother-father-teenage son are out pickniking and stumble on a pot patch, and are killed for it, only the kid survives and ends up hiding out in the woods. then the kid's uncle, the badass who gets chained to the park bench in Warriors, who is a cop comes looking for his sister,brother-in-law and nephew, only to find out the local sheriff is in on the whole thing? pretty cheesy movie. one of those movies that seemed to drop off the face of the earth since i saw it in the theatre though, and the only reason why i decided to go see it to begin with was because the poster had pot leaves all over as a backround, lol.

In certain movies, and in certain roles, Hugh Grant is fantastic. I'd never see Mickey Blue Eyes, or whatever it was called, or About a Boy, but he was great in Love Actually and Bridget Jones, the first one at least. Expand your horizons, So Sorry! Watch a Hugh Grant movie!!

God that scene is bad. But I still have a soft spot for it. I love the scene in the Director's cut where Willis goes to see his father, who turns out to be Lawrence "Dead as Dillinger" Tierney! Since there are a few other Armo-lovers in here, I will dare to say that I think it's a very, very well-paced movie, with a couple of lovely touches in the dialogue. The "NASA requests scene", where they say they never want to pay tax ever again, is a really funny and well-performed scene, IMHO

one of the reason that Armageddon works so well is the humor. and you are right about the pacing too, with the exception of the friggin animal cracker scene, which even a big fan like myself finds painful to watch. still, if people would leave their cynicism at the door they'd find that Armageddon is a great thrill ride with some good laughs and genuine tear-jerker moments to boot. one of the movies i own on dvd that gets the most replay time yr to yr.

Battle Beyond The Stars. WHY? WHY? I'm a right-thinking man in all other regards (as the judge said, "you leave this court, Icarus, with not a stain on your character...." : my thoughts to the families).

I watched it first when I was about 8. True I loved The A-Team. I'd seen the epidsode of Battlestar Galactica with those white dudes in only a couple of weeks before. Too young to understand the design of THAT spaceship Jon-Boy roamed around in. Too young to understand he was "The Prettiest Man I ever did see (Powers Boothe - Tombstone)". And to this day I cling to the vain hope Cowboy dodged those missiles.

But I like it.

There. Now perhaps I can get on with the rest of my life.

Okay I only just noticed this thread and I have a few things to add.

The Postman doesn't quite deserve it's reputation as the biggest turkey of all time, I've only seen it once but I did enjoy it up till the point that Tom Petty turned up, then it just took things too far and that ending was vomit enducingly bad.

Okay ready for it, no one has mention this film which surely means I'm all alone on this one..


"What Dreams May Come" I absolutely love the visuals of this film, Robin Williams performance is a little OTT at times but I love the dark undertones of Suicide and the unique vision of Hell, anyone else like this film or am I trully all alone on this one?

Anyone?



It's cold here all by myself. :(

JL that movie is the bomb and I've watched it many times, my favorite part was when I first watched it and the accident happens, where all you see is the car shoot up into the air, several cars ahead of his car, that was a real hollyshit moment for me. But yes I agree that movie is great.

I need to go review whats been said as I feel I may have contributions here as well

EDIT: btw have you seen the version where they show her trying to kill herself? I've search but only saw it once and I was in the theatre ad I don't know if it was just deleted because of negative feedback but the scne was brutal and brought a completely darker aspect to the fillm. did you ever see that version?

Was actually thinking about seeing this the other day. It doesn't sound bad at all and did wanna see it when it first came out, but the negativity has been well off putting.

The title sounds dodgy though, like 'WET Dreams May 'Come'.

Man, what a great thread.

Here are my top three. No matter when these films are on, I have to stop what I'm doing and watch them. I love them.

1) Rock Star (man, I fucking love this film.)
2) Almost Famous (actually a good Cameron Crowe flick, but it is a guilty pleasure of mine and it drives my wife nuts that I love it so)
3) Hudson Hawk (Richard Grant rules all of our asses in this flick. Over the top and silly, yes yes yes!)
