Bump. For me Phantom Menace is on that list. Most consider it a bad film but I enjoy it

I was considering beginning a Sucker Punch thread.

Then I thought about the likely backlash.

So it's relegated to a guilty pleasure.

I've watched it three times over the past week: Theatrical version; Extended Cut; and Zack's Maximum Movie Mode.

The film works on different levels, with symbols and clues and multiple interpretations.

I discovered it via this. I was curious and wholly expected to hate the movie based on the venom it begets on message boards!

I was just thinking this. I was watching this cheeseball on blu-ray and thought to myself "What if someone walks in and sees me?"

Definition of guilty pleasure.

In light of opening a "Married With Children" thread I thought I'd admit to my television guilty pleasure here. It was and still is my guilty pleasure when it comes on. Bundy had some great one liners...

Code:
INT. BUNDY LIVING ROOM - DAY PEGGY gleefully walks in the door with a magazine and a case of bon-bons. AL sits at the table staring at an empty plate. PEGGY Hi Al! Did you miss me? AL (dead pan) With every bullet so far.

...and who can forget...

Code:
AL (CONT'D) (to Bud) Women. Can't live with them... the end.

There are so many others, but I thought I'd just put that out there.
The original title for the show was "Not The Cosby's"... seriously.

So yesterday was the second of three Friday the 13ths this year. After doing the first 4 of the original series on the first last night my gf and I decided to watch 2 different installments, first the reboot, which I enjoy, and Freddy vs Jason. Friday the13 th will always be a guilty Pleasure for me. I think the next Friday the 13 th this year will be the "camp" edition. Jason in Space, Jason takes Manhatten, or Jason in hell. Any thoughts?

I love Friday the 13th, my favorite is part five; A New Beginning. And Gonzo, you aren't alone in enjoying Married With Children. I love both Al Bundy and Archie Bunker.
As for my guilty pleasure...I..um...*whispers* watch Full House on a daily basis...

As of last night:





Usually Rainn Wilson bugs me, but he was perfect in this. Also, Ellen Page teeters on (and in my opinion does slightly succeed in) upstaging him with her awesome character and a laugh that must be heard to be believed. Funny, dark, and violent. Not the best film ever, and you gotta stick with it for the first 20 minutes or so before it starts getting good, but I was very pleasantly surprised. Nathan Fillion's cameo as The Holy Avenger was pretty awesome, too.

Anyway, a "guilty pleasure" because many of you would have had the same reaction as Mrs. Indy's brother did walking in on me watching this, while I was laughing my guts out:

"What. The hell. Are you watching."

Overboard with Kurt Russell and Goldie Hawn. Got a lot of love for this movie.






Stupid, overacted and obvious but amazingly charming as recently confirmed by the girls of the local Blockbuster!

Who needs Pauline Kael?

I always thought Sam Neill was underrated as an actor.

Ellen Page: "I was sleepwalking!" Pretty awesome/hilarious sex scene, imho. Nah, the missus walked in just as The Crimson Bolt used his wrench for the first time.

Fletch. I dont know what it is about it, but having seen it as a teenager in the 80's I loved the plot, the music and Chevy Chase is just so 1980's. I still dig this movie out on dvd and give it another watch.

Maybe, but Super is darker, grittier, and more set in the real world, despite an odd hallucination.

Actually the real companion to this is a Woody Harrelson film called "Defendor".
It takes the same concept as Super in a slightly more dark and sad direction. Still funny though.

Do I have to be ashamed to say I'm a guy who enjoys good chick flicks. I'm married, so at least I have an excuse for watching them.

My wife does give me a hard time about a few films I like, including Mystery Men, Legend, Highlander, and Zardoz (which certainly qualifies for this thread).

On the tv front -- and this really is a guilty pleasure -- I love America's Funniest Home Videos. I could watch it all day. We refer to it as, "Ow My Balls," which is the name of a fictitious show in "Idiocracy." Great and insightful movie.

Okay, I should probably add Idiocracy to the list.

The Black Hole - Pretty damn cool premise, nice robots and a gory death in a "Disney" movie

The Super Mario Bros. Movie - It has nothing to do with the games and falls flat everywhere, but you cannot deny it's imaginitive weirdness.

I'd definitely say "Cabin in The Woods" should in be there somewhere . . .

I don't think Cabin should be guilty at all...it's a brilliant homage to horror tropes, and I think is intended to be a dark comedy/horror send-up. I personally loved it, and that's really saying something, since I have a deep dislike of modern-day slasher flicks.

Anyone agree?

When you put that way yes, I just tried not to get to deeply involved in the brillance and just let it come and go, to do it's thing . . .

but you make a good point, it's awesome for people who are normally not into that kinda thing and double-y awesome for people who are.

The Wizard (1989)



It's a feature length ad for Nintendo and Universal Studios. Nothing's funnier than 1980's adult actors who know nothing about videogames try to act like they do.

And remember, "I love the Power Glove.... It's so bad."
