I've always had a soft spot for Super Mario Bros. and Masters of the Universe even though they're widely viewed as crap.

Re: "Guilty Pleasure" Movies

I'm amused to see Mortal Kombat keep showing up. This is where I brag about having edited the novelization of that movie, as well as a junior version for kids.

As I recall, they sold very well . . . .

His rant at the alien before the knockout punch was pretty good too.

Re: "Guilty Pleasure" Movies

Transformers (the first one) - fabulous visuals and great score by Steve Jablonsky. Also, that blond Aussie chick... Her accent is like beautiful music.

The Island - Scar Jo in a catsuit, top-tier production values, Sean Bean, Djimon Honsou... Yeah, hardly a good movie, but a feast for eyes and ears.

Independence Day - I think I was 12 when I first saw it on the big screen. Had the time of my life. Nearly two decades later I still have a soft spot for that one.

SW Prequels (all three of them, even "Clones") - yep, they suck... But I can still enjoy them for what they are (and then bitch about what they could have / should have been afterwards).

Well, it's after 2am here and I meant to go to bed at 1am, but doing one last round of the channels turned up Xanadu. It's cheesy, but for some reason I just really enjoy the musical bits.

Re: "Guilty Pleasure" Movies

How could I forget TERMINAL ISLAND from 1973, with Marta Kristen and Tom Selleck fighting against Roger Moseley and THE MENAGERIE's scarred Captain Pike as maniacal Bobby?

Sean Kenney is truly awful in this, so we're not saddened when he burns off screaming.

Also YENTL.
