You still need to watch it Zack, at least for the daily glass of gunk.


It's on my list, Libby! But you have to track down "Inside".

The crickets have returned...

What's your favorite guilty pleasure movie? A movie that you know is awful, but just can't help but love.

For me, it has to be "Leprechaun 4: In Space". It's so bad, but also sooo good. lol

I've two movies that I keep returning to for burning time. Neither are considered bad by any means but I do get sideways glances when I tell people that I love Starship Troopers and Tremors.

Oh, and Water World.

Tremors is just about perfect.

Love me some Starship Troopers as well. Great satire.

Water World is a movie that could use a remake. Lol.

I give people who don't love Starship Troopers sideways and frontways glances.

The greatest bad drinking movie for me is Deep Blue Sea. Actually, I'm not convinced it's a bad movie. You can watch it sober and genuinely enjoy it, or watch with friends and laugh at it. Key rules include drink everytime you see a shark, everytime there's "shark vision", and every time LL Cool J talks to a parrot.


That rug really tied the room together.

Armageddon is another guilty pleasure of mine. For my money, it's still Bay's most entertaining movie.

Guilty pleasures! My favourite topic.

Starship Troopers is magnificent -- all his movies are -- but my all-time favourite guilty pleasure Verhoeven movie is Showgirls.

From the 2000s, I love the "badass heroines" movies like Aeon Flux, Ultraviolet, and Charlie's Angels.

From the 90s, the erotic thrillers and "yuppies in peril" thrillers like Malice, Body of Evidence, Zandalee, and Color of Night.

From the 80s, action crud like Death Wish III, The Exterminator, and Ninja III: The Domination.

From the 70s, anything around the giallo genre. Slaughter Hotel, All the Colors of the Dark, Torso, Eyeball.

From the 60s, drug films like The Trip and Psych-out, and druggy horror films like I Drink Your Blood.

I won't keep going backwards, but basically, if the plot is absurd nonsense, the violence and sleaze are high, and the director fully commits to a (usually misguided) vision, I'm there.

Another great Verhoeven guilty pleasure is Hollowman!

Great list of movies, Chris.

Oh man. It's a three-way tie for me, between the relatively high quality of The Rock, the absurd excess of Bad Boys II, and the unmatched silliness of Armageddon.

Armageddon does have the all-time classic line, "Sir. The override. It's been overridden!"

Great flick.

When I lived in Calgary, a local film group managed to get a 35mm copy of it and did a screening at one of the local arthouse theatres. Midnight showing, local indie horror shorts before the feature, a set from a local band, the whole deal. People were absolutely sloshed by the time the movie actually started -- or maybe just I was, who knows -- and the movie went over HUGE. Everyone yelling at the screen during the big moments. Spilling out into the streets after, talking about favourite parts and craziest scenes. Saying "Total. Spring. Cleaning." over and over. One of those moments that reminds you what movies can be.
