films I love... that i shouldn't even like...

hard to kill
day of the dead
garden state
they live
psycho III

I'm with you on harry potter... they are also the biggest POS books I've ever laid eyes on, I never get past chapter one, the writing is just so horrid... harry potter has almost single-handedly ruined my opinion of the general public, but when idiots get all the money I guess this is what happens and jk rowling gets rich, and the cycle begins all over again.

All the Leone's, the Hitchcocks, the James Bonds of the '60's and '70's, all the good bad movies produced in Hollywood.

I actually enjoy quite a few Carry ons. You should like Leone, and Bond Titoli, no one will be ashamed if you do like them.

A little known film from '81 called The Last Chase with Lee Majors, Burgess Meredith, and the kid from My Hero

It's the future and all cars are outlawed in the United States, California breaks away from the Union and allows cars to run freely. Lee Majors is an ex-race car driver on the East Coast who just happens to have his old gas guzzler stashed away. He hears word of the California car fest and makes a run for it across the country in his 300mph race car siphoning gas out of the bottom of the tanks of old service stations along the way. The Government gets word of his run and brings in an old retired fighter pilot, Burgess Meredith, and assigns him the task of intercepting Lee Majors before he gets to California. Its a lot of cheesy fun. The Score is really great.

Reminds me of DeathRace 2000. its not a Corman film is it.

Dune (1984)

Daimajin (1965) Japanese film industry crosses two of it most popular themes of the 60s. Rubber Suit Monster Movie/Samurai Chambara Film. Wrath of god trapped inside a giant stone statue, terrorizes feudal japan.



Alien3 (1992) Its like a 2000AD comic strip made flesh.
Sonny & Jed (1972)
13th Warrior (2000) - Yes it looks like the victim of a disney editing room chop-shop. Yes it had the misfortune of opening in the same year as Gladiator, and plus a disgruntled Book fanbase. Don't understand the dumping this movie gets
Buckaroo Banzai (1984)

So bad its funny..
Hercules In New York (1970) -The original overdubbed twerp track. Not the recently found arnie voice track. 'Had a viewing a couple of year ago at my house. A friend had cardiac like giggle fit, he had to leave the room for a bit, to carm down. ;D
Zardoz (1973) is a hoot too.

I watch my selected Carry On Movies with pride. No gulity pleasure. *ahem* Carry On Dick, Camping and Don't lose your Head are fine films.

I first caught it along time ago on the Bravo channel when they still had a sense of humour for Trash movie gold. The various rather cheap VHS release have had the original overdub. 
But the cheapie UK DVD release is sporting the new voice over. The Region 1 version has a choice of both. ;D

Absolutely. I have two:

Cobra -- Just about the most offensive "rogue cop" movie ever made. A thinly veiled knockoff of Dirty Harry, the film misses all the progressive subtext of that film and glories in sadism and the repression of civil liberties. And yet... I've seen Cobra countless times and find it absolutely fascinating in its horribleness.

Deathstalker -- Cheaply made exploitation trash with virtually nothing to recommend it. And yet... I own a copy of the movie, and even got a signed poster from Lana Clarkson prior to her untimely death.

Films that I like even though I shouldn't.

Well, usually, I'd go for something thought-provking, moving, detailed, sometimes a large scale epic, sometimes a small, character driven movie. In all, entertaining, intelligent films.

But my secret shame was when I turned on the TV and saw ... (this is so embarassing) ... South Park: Bigger, Better and Uncut. Badly animated eight-year olds going around swearing their heads off! I'm not supposed to find this crude humor funny - but I did.

What's wrong with me, and are there any pills that can help?

Don't laugh but it seems that I'm one of the few to think that the Fugitive is one of the best action movies of the last 2-3 decades. Probably because over here the TV series was never aired (though it was in the '60's but can't remember much) recently and so I cannot compare it to the original (which everybody -"everybody"- pronounces to be better than the movie). I like so much (though here he hams it without restraint) Tommy Lee Jones and also Harrison Ford's (not one of my favourite actors) usual stoned presence.e
