    What is that one movie that you, and sometimes seems like only you, love to watch anytime, anyplace?
    Mine is Brainsmasher: A Love Story with Andrew Dice Clay and Teri Hatcher, filmed right here in Portland and is so cheesie, you need to watch it with a bottle of wine and some dry salami.
    It's OOP on VHS and will likely never make it to DVD but if it does, I will buy two copies on the chance something ever happens to the first copy.

    Hook. I get inspired every time I watch it. I love the scene where Peter Banning remembers his past and learns to fly.

    I'm not sure if it is really cheesy, but it is definitely a bit campy and a guilty pleasure from my high school days.

    I'd not be to hesitate to say that the majority of movies I like, would be scoffed at by my fellow HTF members. However, I can list a couple that make me wonder what I see in them.
    1. House and House II They aren't that great, but I like em anyway.
    2. Grease 2 I know, I know.
    3. Deep Blue Sea For what it is, I don't think it's that bad. Plus, I really like Thomas Jane.
    4. Buckaroo Banzai Until I joined here, I thought I was the only person on the planet who liked this one.
    5. The Quick and the Dead I love Sam Raimi.
    6. Strange Brew One of my all time favorites. I'm not ashamed to admit it either. If you don't agree, then Take Off, Eh.
    7. And for my capper, Masters of the Universe. I can't for the life of me understand why, but whenever this is on, I almost always watch it. I've even contemplated picking it up on DVD.

    Terrible film? Yes! But it has a certain cheesy charm.

    Probably Mallrats and the Matrix. Every fiber in my being says I should hate them, but I still enjoy them.

    Not that I could watch it all the time, but I enjoyed The Mexican a lot more than I should!

    I'm suprised that no one has said Spiritual Kung Fu with Jackie Chan. Now thats one cheesy movie. But I still can watch it at any time.
