I just wanted to ask you guys what Films that aren’t consider any good that have gone straight to video or d.v.d but you have a soft spot for..
I loved Amercian Ninja 1&2 and also Bloodsport with Jean Claude Van Damme, I grew up on these films and even today even though the acting, script and direction aren’t great i still love watching them.
So have any of you have any Guilty pleasure’s?
A true B-movie, B. Monkey actually as the letter “B” in the title. But seriously, it’s a fine movie.
Carnival Of Souls (1962)
I hate to admit it, but Roger Corman’s BUCKET OF BLOOD is an authentic “B” movie, and even has the letter “B” in the title! It’s a guilty pleasure, too.
I thoroughly enjoyed Wanted. Maybe not a B-movie, but a million miles from high-brow.
LONG LIVE ’ Starship Troopers’
John Waters’ Polyester. I got to see it with the scratch and sniff “Odorama” cards several years ago. You haven’t lived until you’ve experienced a film you can smell.
big trouble, little china. and also dead alive.
B-movies should NOT be considered guilty pleasures. One should be proud that they can appreciate something that the mainstream finds below itself.
I love so many and am not ashamed!
Billy Jack for it’s crazy mixture of pacifism and violence. I love it when Billy Jack goes “ber-SERRKKK!!”
The Devil’s Rain for its sheer lunacy. God, what a freaky slice of 1970s Satanic horror starring The Shat, Ernest Borgnine, and Ida Lupino!
The Car, 1970s horror film featuring James Brolin and a bad-ass Satanic car.
Warriors of the Wasteland, a fantastic example of 1980s Italian post-Apocalyptic action. I love the hero’s car, an American muscle car decked out with weapons and a crystal skull hood ornament. At least I remember it’s a crystal skull.
The Labyrinth with Bowie.
The Thing, Big Trouble Little China, Escape From New York….Kurt Russell ftw. Although I would argue that The Thing is an actual classic.
Another vote for “b. monkey”
I adore Robert Fuest’s work, especially the “Dr. Phibes” films and “The Final Programme” (aka. "The Last Days of Man on Earth’)
Children Shouldn’t Play with Dead Things :D
The Deadly Spawn. The symbolism in this film is very well played out.
I’m proud to say I love the Wachowski’s Speed Racer, but I still consider it a guilty pleasure. I love the TV show and what was done with the movie was spot on, but I could still use a little less of spridle and chim chim.
Lethal weapon 1 and Mad Max 1&2 are classic b-movies
Creature from the Black Lagoon rules !
Something Wild – this movie was fab back in the eighties with an AWESOME soundtrack and seems to have totally disappeared from peoples minds – up there with the best of Demme’s movies.
If Kill Bill a big-budget B-movie…. yes it is a guilty pleasure
For me, it all begins and ends with "Beyond the Valley of the Dolls.
“He smells like PUSSY!”
Dragon Wars is so bad, SO bad… but it’s hard not to find the slightest bit of entertainment in a film that contains dragons, swords, cell phones, reincarnation, legends, Power Rangers villains, alternate dimensions, shape shifters, Castles, paper thin unrequited love, and Robert Forester.
