    Caveman. The story was lame, the dialog was non-existant and the effects were nothing special but they managed to make it one of my favorite movies. [​IMG]

    * The Car--a completely stupid 1977 schlocker about a black, demon-possessed Lincoln Continental that terrorizes a small desert Southwestern town, and which can only be defeated by Sheriff James Brolin delivering an Oscar-worthy performance. Hey, it's a 16:9-encoded disc. The movie is goofy fun.

    * Reefer Madness--who can't enjoy this late-1930s laugh riot? What a high!

    Bloodsucking Pharoes From Pittsburg...even the director wanted his namee off this film....but I find it so amusing and over-the-top. From the begiining scene where the killer is hauling a generator in a red wagon to power the lawn equipment he uses to dismember people to the cops wife who can NOT stop smoking...priceless fun for me.

    Wild Side - For the love scene between Joan Chen and Anne Heche. [​IMG] Hey, you asked! Unfortunately, we'll probably never see an authorized release of the apparently much-better director's cut.
    Independence Day - Good ol' cheesy sci-fi fun.
    The Mummy (1999) - Good ol' cheesy horror fun.
    That's about it.

    Point of No Return - it's not the best movie ever made, but damn, Bridget Fonda was hot in it.

    MGM's SOUL CINEMA collection proudly, but guiltily, resides in my library. This includes "blaxploitation" classics such as COFFY, FOXY BROWN, TRUCK TURNER, BLACK CAESAR and SLAUGHTER. The majority of the transfers are very good (most are 16x9 enhanced) and some even include Director/Producer commentary. You can't go wrong with Pam Grier, Fred Williamson, Jim Brown and Isaac Hayes on your shelf - they're a bunch of bad muthas...

    Shriek If You Know What I Did Last Friday the 13th - The film was so bad that it never went to theaters and ended up going straight to television, but I thought it was pretty funny (and much funnier than the first Scary Movie.

    Amazon Women on the Moon - 'nuff said about that.

    Sgt Kabukiman, NYPD - One the most "mainstream" Troma discs.
    Cannibal: The Musical - A not-so-mainstream Troma disc.
    ...though nowhere near as bad as Killer Condom
    Bloodsucking Freaks - Possibly the worst Troma film I've ever seen.

    Independence Day You can't help but like a movie that has a continuous rumble through nearly the entire film.

    G.I. Joe the Movie When a cartoon has a movie, it usually crap, and while the story has some many holes in it, you could make a dozen mice happy, but the fun factor is high. The final twenty minutes are very fun to watch.
    Starship Troopers As with G.I.Joe the movie, it has a rather thin plot, but is full of action and is best watch when your brain is in the mood for mindless killing.
    Great Mouse Detective Just have a great love for this Disney movie that came out when I was a kid. Who can't love Vincent Price as a rat crime lord?

    Oh God! I'm embarrassed to admit this...but,(ugh)...I have two such awful, inane, poorly-acted movies that I have to watch them when everyone else is gone!
    Xanadu and Perfect
    I realize that the acting AND the choreography is sooooo pitiful in both of these...yet I just can't tear myself away. It's like watching an accident, ya know?

    I'm afraid that Dumb & Dumber gets played more often than most DVDs at my house. Anyone who comes over and tells me they HAVEN'T seen it, gets a screening on the spot. It's even MORE fun with someone else. (at least for ME)
