Re: "Guilty Pleasure" Movies

I'm watching The Quick and the Dead right now. It's kind of terrible, but it's weirdly compelling and has a strong cast.

I'm watching Heartbreak Ridge. Definitely a guilty pleasure.

Re: "Guilty Pleasure" Movies

Masters of the Universe is one of my guilty pleasure films also, I just think Frank Langella is brilliant as Skeletor. Plus I enjoy the laser battles.
Another one of mine is the much frowned Postman, starring Kevin Costner. I think its a good film.
Just to mention a few

See, I think The Quick And The Dead is a brilliant movie from beginning to end. To each their own, I guess.

Re: "Guilty Pleasure" Movies

^ You know, having watched it again... I kind of agree with that.

I mean, it's cartoony as all get out, but it knows just what it's doing and does it well.

Michael Bay's Armageddon

That movie takes a dump on the laws of physics, logic and realism and substitutes it with a million one liners, even more slow mo scenes, an equal amount of US flags and the most absurd plot ever.

I just love this movie!

I don't think it's THAT bad. Gene Hackman plays a very awesome SOB.

Then there's Constantine. The Hunt for Red October. Battle Beyond The Stars.

And Amish Mafia.

Constantine and Hunt for Red October are both awesome movies.

There's nothing guilty pleasure about The Hunt for Red October. It's one of the best movies of it's time.

I guess the crowd I hang with doesn't "get" the movie. I seem to be the only one interested in watching it when it reruns.

Re: "Guilty Pleasure" Movies

I would also say "The Hunt For Red October" wouldn't be classed as a guilty pleasure movie, as it was a critical and commercial success.

Re: "Guilty Pleasure" Movies

I have this weird thing for the movie "Space Milkshake"

I mean what isn't awesome about George Takei playing a giant space rubber duck?
