i was inspired by sassi214
from earlier today.
what are your favorite movies that you are almost
ashamed to like. i'm not talking about your standard "oh, i love the goonies
" nostalgia. i mean seriously BAD movies that, for some strange reason, you adore watching.
movies i am almost
ashamed to own:super mario bros: the movie
- (bob hoskins and jon leguizamo as mario and luigi fight an evil king koopa, played by none other than dennis hopper).the stuff
- seminal b-horror movie director larry cohen's commentary on 80's commercial identity, where evil, addictive, alien yogurt turns ordinary people into mindless zombies. stars an increasingly drunk michael moriarty.
kid: hey mister... i threw up in your car"
drunk michael moriarty: that's okay, son.
kid: i'm SAW
-ry... i... i just ate shaving cream
drunk michael moriarty: well, son... we all have to eat shaving cream sometimes.maximum overdrive
- you asked for it, and stephen king delivers it (in the height of his cocaine snorting days). emilio esteves takes on an army of posessed big-rigs at a gas station outside of wilmington, north carolina, one of which has a cab shaped like the green goblin's head. totally fucking awesome soundtrack by AC/DC.troll
- another drunken appearance by michael moriarty, who plays a man named... you guessed it. HARRY friggin' POTTER (also starring noah hathaway, who was arteyu in the neverending story as harry potter... JUNIOR). the movie is set it the town of Nilbog (for those of you who aren't dislexic, that's GOBLIN backwards... how's THAT for ominous?).
oh man, i could go on forever with bad movies i love, but then what would be the point of asking the question? let's get our netflix queues in gear with some seriously bad movies. recommendations? yattaboe
