    Or, I suppose, your "Guilty Pleasure" films. The movies pretty much everybody pans, but you still get a kick out of.

    I'm pretty sure we've done this topic before, but its always a bit intriguing to revisit.

    So...

    Yes - I'll admit it. I have fun watching WaterWorld and Wild Wild West.

    Both have considerable production value and rich production design, have multiple custom and interesting props, feature top-rated actors with decent performances, etcetera...

    Tim Burton's Planet of the Apes; never understood the hate, but at least one thing everyone can agree on is that Rick Baker's make-up was stunning ;)

    I also liked Bobcat Goldthwait's Shakes The Clown (AKA, The Last Temptation of Bozo :lol). Mediocre film, but it always gives me a laugh.

    I also enjoy the guilty pleasure of the AVP movies.

    Also quite a few of those 80's actioners with Chuck Norris, Charles Bronson, Ahhhhnold and the like.

    Gettysburg and Gods and and Generals. They are exercises in pedantic by the numbers filmmaking and editing, but there are so few American Civil War films.

    And I liked City Heat. Eastwood and Reynolds. They should've done more together, if for no reason than to get the taste of this one out of their mouths, but I like it while few others do.

    I know the lost world and JP3 get a lot of hate, But I have always liked those movies.

    Spiderman 3. I understand why people didn't like it, But I thought that venom was cool and the black suit spider was fine.

    Undercover Brother and Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back. I'm not even allowed to wath them in the living room on the super large screen. I'm banished to the trophy room to watch them down there. :lol

    You worked on it? Sorry I still don't know everyone on here yet- are you an actor? Crew?
    You know why I like Van Damme in that movie? He hardly has any lines. Serious-- just like Arnold in The Terminator, he has a much more bad-* demeanor when he's not running around with that heavy accent all the time. I think Van Damme is the coolest in this movie out of all he's done!
    Plus that movie is like a mix of Van Damme and Fallout-- which is awesome :lol

    i come in peace - awesome film known in the uk as dark angel.

    as a rule now i ignore the critics or peoples opinion, unless the majority hate it.

    i just watched sactum, knew nothing about it and have to say i enjoyed it (xmas gift given too me) dont get me wrong here tho, i wouldnt buy it but as a movie given it was reasonable to watch again sometime

    Scarface-
    I know this film has quite a following, but in the end, it just isn't the type of film that I typically enjoy.

    laughable production design, jouvenile dialog, hammy acting, and a comic book type plot....and yet I find myself watching it every time it's on tv. Lol

    Do you mean the Howard Hawks' film or do you mean the remake with Al Pacino?

    Most any given costumed superhero movie... Daredevil, Green Lantern, the 1990 Captain America movie, Fantastic Four, etc.

    Bad non-costume superhero films I don't seem to care for for whatever goofball reason I myself don't even understand... Jonah Hex, Ghost Rider, Wolverine, etc.

    Wow this sort of took off!

    I think if you go in expecting the caliber of Alien, you're hosed (like expecting ESB when going in to see TPM).

    But if you want good, fun, mental junk food, there you go...


    Same... Good, mindless action, sweet cars... Fun film. xXx (the sequel) was a complete waste of time though!


    Likewise... Never thought 3 was a bad film. A bit simple, maybe not the same as the first, but fun to watch.

    This one is so ridiculous how can anyone NOT like it!? ;)

    Actual GUILTY pleasures: Charlie's Angels and Lost in Space.

    Movies I'm not the least bit guilty about and everyone else should love but they don't: Speed Racer and The Matrix sequels.

    I just had this conversation with a few friends last night. One person said, "Top Gun, Star Wars and Superman". We all just stared at him while there was a few seconds of awkward silence before I asked him if he knew the meaning of "guilty pleasure". Let's just say his definition was not textbook.
    We all laughed at him. :lol

    Considering the snob crowd I went to university with, I shouldn't like any of the entertainment movies I like.

    I like Chris Nolan quite a bit but (feel free to freak out) he is not the best writer or director by any means. Still, I enjoy his films immensely.

    I didn't expect to like 500 Days of Summer nearly as much as I did. But, that said I am a fan of Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Zooey Deschanel ain't that bad herself.
