So folks, what movie do you love to watch, though you'd never tell anyone, except maybe a select group of friends?  It can be a cheesy B movie, a "chick" flick for the guys, or a "guy" flick for the gals around here.

Me, I love this crappy sci-fi comedy called Freaked.  It has Randy Quaid as the mad doctor, Mr T as the bearded lady, and Bobcat as the sock puppet head man, along with giant gun toting rastafarian eyeballs(eye 'n eye) and Brooke Shields as the talk show host.  Hell, it even has Larry 'Bud' Melman(from David Letterman) as a spectator at the freak show(Come on, what are you, a buncha bleepys).

Just a great movie to sit down with some popcorn and drink(barley tea for me) and just escape for a little while.  So, any body else have one they wouldn't tell many others about?  wink

I have to admit, that I enjoy watching Disney films like Lion King and Aladdin. And I also can rewatch popcorn films like Resident Evil and The Scorpion King very often.

I like Chitty Chitty Bang Bang (apart from the singing bits), and I don't care who knows!

I also love Last Action Hero and The Adventures of Milo and Otis.

Trick Or Treat, an '80s Heavy Metal/Horror movie starring that Skippy guy from Family Ties.  It also had a couple of small cameos by Gene Simmons and Ozzy Osbourne (as a preacher, heh).  If you were into Metal and like bad horror movies, you'll get a kick out of this one.  It has a sweet soundtrack by Fastway, too.  This one always gets a few viewings around Halloween.

They did a quick rerelease of this on DVD that was available on Amazon.com.  To snare more viewers, they put pictures of Gene Simmons and Ozzy on the box even though they're only in it for a few minutes.  If you read the reviews on Amazon, you'll see a bunch of people who are pissed cause they thought those two were the focus of the movie.  Priceless!

heh.
this won't do much for my "I'm not a stupid girl" position but here goes. My favorite movies that I'm ashamed to love so much are
Little Women: The one with Claire Danes and Kristen Dunst.
and You've Got Mail: and yes, i know it's crap, but I still love it and I don't like any other romantic comedies

But i'm not going to force boys to come over and watch them with me and braid my hair. I'm happy enough to sit alone and watch them.

Well, here's one not many people know of, but I love to watch this movie called Spacehunter?, with a young Molly Ringwald in it, it was 3d in the theather, and was just crap.  But I still love it when it comes on, also lots of Oliver Grunier movies as well.  big grin

Aladdin- I still laugh at Robin Williams' genie.
Final Fantasy- An okay film, people made too much fuss about the animation.
There's Something About Mary- Because deep inside, I'm a 12 year-old who loves jokes about fapping.
And Star Trek: The Motion Picture- Because no-one else seems to like it!

Zoolander. Yeah, it's stupid; so what? It's fickin' hilarious, and it has one of the coolest soundtracks around. Wham!, Loverboy, Michael Jackson (Black edition), Frankie Goes To Hollywood; it's all there.

Plus, it has Owen Wilson, who is awesome.

You think you're too cool for school. Well, i got a news flash for you, Walter Cronkite: ...you aren't.

I enjoy Kung Pow: Enter the Fist. Steve Oedekirk and his interactions with an old cast that's not really there- and still manages to keep it fresh. The voice-overs are great. "Good lord, that's a lot of nuts!"

Awesome cult film.  Everybody forgot about Fastway after this film, but I just listened to the soundtrack today.  It rocks.

I'm obsessed with the Goonies, but I think everyone should know.  Spread the word, Goonies rocks.  Of course I loved it unselfconsciously when it came out, when I was 8.  I felt it was a guilty pleasure for a while after I "grew up," but I was so much older then; I'm younger than that now.

From Justin To Kelly
So sue me. I love the music in it. I think the sory is horrible (and so does pretty much every one else), but I loved it when we still had J2K because I could go into the theater to clean it and sing to the songs over the credits. I love "Vacation" and "That's The Way (I Like It)"

I also like SPYkids 2 and SPYkids 3D because of the music. Once everyone leaves, I'm usually the only one in there cleaning up the huge mess (matinees are wonderful, I get to clean 20 theaters all by myself) and I usually sing to the songs, especially "Game Over."

Hey you don't need to be ashamed! It may not be quite as good as the original but it's still an excellent film! I love it. It's kind of like what James Cameron did with Aliens as a sequel to Alien. More action and FX. So what it lacks in story it makes up for in "Wow" factor!
Closing statement: The Lost World is a great movie.
As for my guilty pleasure...Even though I know it's pretty shity, I usually watch Godzilla when it's on. Purely for the FX though. Oh and Charlies Angels, again purely for the, uh "visuals"  smile

I hear ya! I love that film! It's got adventure, girls, pirates and kids that act like real kids ("You broke my most favorite part!"  wink). Why aren't more films like the Goonies made?

And I'll also add Transformers: The Movie to my list. Everything about that movie rocks!

There's a bizarre movie that MTV produced a few years ago called 'Joe's Apartment', about a guy who shares a apartment with a group of singing cockroaches.

I own the Blair Thumb Project! "According to this map, it's somewhere near trees."

I also enjoyed watching Jingle all the way. It's got Ahnuld going crazy over a toy, and it's fun to see him wrestle with midgets.

I loved that movie. The most hilarious part was the guy who gets to choose how he will be killed, and the hundred naked woman chase him with football helmets... or death yelling at Americans...

I really love to watch a Woody Allen movie called "Everthing you ever wanted to know about sex...but were afraid to ask."  Some hit and miss, but one episode with John Carradine as the mad scientist who creates the evil giant breast, that goes rampaging about the countryside, is something that has to be seen to be believed.
