Yesssssssssssssssss!!! Not much love for White Chicks in here. I own all of those you've listed.

He's one musician that seems to do fairly well with the acting. Labyrinth, The Man Who fell to Earth, The Hunger, Merry Christmas Mr. Lawrence. Plus he's been doing all of this alongside his musical career. He did some great voice work too for SpongeBob Squarepants episode and for Besson's "Arthur and the Invisibles".

Love Bowie.

you know I have to gree with what others here have said, that you really shouldn't be embarresed to like a movie

I mean I've tried numerous times to get my friends (most of whom are younger then me) to watch Fletch or Evil Dead or something and they just can't get it and they make fun of me, but then I mock the for liking stuff I don't like The Notebook

on that note though, and this may sound blasphmsy amongst the movie geeks

I really love Fleth Lives, I actually think I've watched it more then the original Fletch

I haven't seen FLETCH LIVES but I do like FLETCH. I won't say love, because it really isn't the kind of movie I can just pull off the shelf any time I feel like it. I have to be in the right mood. But, fuck, man... Chevy Chase!

"Hi. I'm John Cock...toasten."

see that's how I feel about the original fleth, I mean it's a great movie, a classic and the sequel is so subpar but it's also so bizaree with his dream sequence at the beginning that is a homage to Song of the South (who would have the balls to pull that off) the Harley Davidson bits, the teleevanglist, the Phil Hartman (and I believe Jon Lovtiz) cameo, Hal Holbrook in full bizaree strange mode

PostPosted: Fri Apr 25, 2008 11:50 pm
by caruso_stalker217
I thought the weirdest part of FLETCH was when he has that daydream where he's playing basketball and he's got a 'fro... where the fuck did that come from?

PostPosted: Fri Apr 25, 2008 11:58 pm
by Bloo
there is so much to both Fletch movies that are just out there and weird, and the movies bare absoutly no relation to the movies, in the books he's still a smartass but not so flippent and no disguises or fake names, that was all added so Chase could improv

I'm currently rereading Fletch and the Man Who right now, Fletch gets invovled in Politics!

anyways there are some really strange daydreams in the first one too, but that Song of The South homage gets to me every time

I would have to say that Vanilla Sky is one of these types of guilty pleasures. Jason Lee and Tom Cruises acting along with some of the dialog is just cheesy to the max, but overall I thought it was a bold attempt at something and enjoyed it, whereas many others who feel themselves to be of higher intellect will poke fun at it.

For a pretty bad movie it managed to get watched by everybody I know. But Bowie did give a good performance in it.

I'm a straight man and I love rock operas and musicals. I don't know how the myth that only homosexual men and straight women like musicals got started, but I don't see anything wrong with appreciating good music or being a homosexual. Anyway, some of my favorites are....

Jesus Christ Superstar - I love classic rock and the movie is basically telling the story of Christ through 70's rock and it's pretty darn awesome.

Tommy - I freaking love The Who, Elton John, and weird movies and this has all three. It's just a trippy acid hippie movie with lots of music.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show - Again, just another whacky and fun film.

The Phantom of the Opera - A beautiful and sad story.

Sweeney Todd - Come on, it's a horror musical. People get killed. I shouldn't feel too ashamed or unmanly about digging it.

I have a confession to make. I love Millenium.

Yes, the one where Kris Kristofferson plays the same character twice.

That movie hit my 11 year old brain like liquid bricks, and the aesthetic, the possibilities behind time travel, and the foxy allure of Cheryl Ladd have never let me go. Time commandos had been running around in my brain long before the 90's, but until I tapped into my own time-travel sci-fi creations, Millenium was my only source of time-commando satisfaction.

While I'm at it, I might as well come clean about Timecop and Freejack.

While not to the extent of Millenium, I have a problem with time-travel movies.

Time travel generally makes for bad stories. It's just an incredibly easy way out. The protagonist gets into a horrible situation and there's no hope, and he just goes back in time to when there WAS hope. No drama! Austin Powers lampooned this well.

The only time-travel stories that, for me, are any good are the ones in which the time travel is very, very difficult. The Terminator works because the time travel is one direction only - there's no going back. You can't use time travel to escape a bad situation. Back To The Future works because you have to get that Delorean up to 88 miles per hour, etc., and it's not always easy to do! Besides, it's comedy, so we cut it a lot of slack.

If I remember correctly, I made this point somewhere else in the Zone a long while ago. But it's the main reason I'm leery of time-travel stories.

If that strikes you as rough, then I've got one that'll take this thread to a whole new level...

BATTLEFIELD EARTH.

That's right sallies, I said BATTLEFIELD EARTH! I LOVE BATTLEFIELD EARTH!

How can you talk about cavemen flying harriers as though it were a bad thing? This is the closest the world will get to a pulp-novel, pre-1960's science fiction film with modern production value and talent, and I for one will not stomp on it!

Not that such a film needs to be made again, mind you! Genres are elevated, genres move on. All the same, this movie is too much fun for all it has endured. Bless your silly ass, John Travolta!

Amen. One of my favs as well. Here's a list of movies where I can count on my hand the amount of people who actually like the movies - including me

Phantasm Oblivion
Xtro
Incubus
Fear No Evil
The Final Terror
Prophecy (the mutant giant bear movie, not the Walken movies)
The Postman

Those of you talking about how you're not embarrassed to love any movie obviously don't watch The Notebook everytime it's on tv (including last night)

*It wasn't over... it still isn't over!* :oops:

Also if we're going to get truly embarrassing (and I can't believe this has been mentioned already by Havoc of all people) but I get insanely excited whenever I'm hungover on a Sunday and A Walk to Remember is on..

While it might not be as good as the Spanish film it's based upon (Open Your Eyes / Abre los ojos - Penelope Cruz plays the smae role in both versions of the story, and the Spanish movie is, on the whole, a little more comprehensible), it's really a good movie. I look at it as science fiction, which I don't think is what people were expecting when they went to see it. Still, a really good movie, and as Buster says, no embarrasment necessary.

There is no embarrassment in loving that movie. I think its amazing. In fact, its the only movie I own 2 copies of the DVD.
I had it back on my shelf in the UK, but saw it in a shop in norway for sale, and decided I couldnt wait for my next trip home to see it. So many golden moments. As well as the obvious shark and bomb gags, I love bruces conversation with Miss Kitka in the carraige, where he is plainly wrestling with a stiffy and about to pop. Or the superbly choreographed discussion in Gordons office, with each of the characters pacing back and forth in front of the camera trying to solve the case. The creme de la creme is batman lecturing the navy chief over the phone for being reckless with the sale of nuclear submarines. Gold.
