    Films that I love... Some people think they are ridiculous, but not everyone:

    Destination Moon (1950)
    Abbott and Costello Meets the Invisible Man (1951)
    (Actually any Abbott and Costello movie)
    Lost in Space (1998)
    The Mask (1994)
    Battlefield Earth (2000) - bet No 2 is just as bad!!! HAHAHA!!!
    Galaxy Quest (1999)

    I have these films on VHS and/or DVD...

    Some of my favorite movies are the ones you just know are *awful* but love to watch again and again (though Master, Galaxy Quest is my Most Hated Movie of All Time(so far) ;)), and others that are just amazing in a ridiculous way. A few usual suspects:

    The Beastmaster
    Conan the Destroyer
    13th Warrior (not quite so ridiculous)
    The Big Lebowski (ridiculous in the best possible way)
    Labyrinth
    Ichi the Killer
    Dragon Half
    Ninja Scroll

    (I'm sure I'll think of more once I get back to my flat this weekend and peruse the collection)

    I love Galaxy Quest! I like The Beastmaster also and Legally Blonde. I also really like The Crow, I have it on DVD. I really liked Willow too. Can't think of anything else at the moment. Oh wait, The Goonies. Oh, and The Lost Boys.:D

    I'm sure I could think of more but I'll quit there ;) .

    The Doberman Gang (which we've discussed here before)
    Road House
    To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar

    I'm sure I'll think of more, but this is a good start.:) Oh, and yeah, I loved Galaxy Quest, as well.

    I haven't seen Dude, Where's my Car? so I can't add that but I've liked all the previous posts. I'll add Cherry 2000, Death Race 2000, the Vacation movies and Old School.

    Damn! You've just reminded me - I've never ever seen Death Race 2000.

    It's now top of my 'to do' list.

    Just thought of another: Mystery Men. I just love the fact that The Invisible Boy is only invisible when nobody's watching :D

    I really liked Tank Girl, too. Neat soundtrack as well - that Bjork song especially, 'Army of Me'.

    Possibly those brat pack movies. I used to have a very well worn copy of Less Than Zero on video, in a special case. There was just something that film. Completely different to the novel, of course, which is disturbing in a different way (and also very lacking ni many areas of characterisation, and rather short - more a novella). Perhaps one day I will also collect a few more, such as Breakfast Club. Never seen St Elmos fire but probably should - or have I grown too old now?

    Best cheese were the teen horror flicks - My Best Friend is a Vampire, Fright Night, and the rather quality Monster squad.

    My brothers thought Billy Jack was the coolest! I'm going to add Raising Arizona Nicholas Cage: "I think I got the best one!" What a great movie!

    Guilty pleasures of mine:


    Transformers, The Movie
    Virtuosity
    Last Man Standing
    The Ref
    Judge Dread (forgive me)
    Independance Day (cheesy, derivative, completely honest about both)

    Hmmm, I like Charles Dance. Okay, so Iliked Clemmens in Alien3, at any rate.

    I forgot Highway to Hell. Great, cheesy movie, with all star extras :) And kristy swanson. Cant act, but she sure is purty.

    Charles Dance was in the TV series of Logan's Run, wasn't he?
