Admit it, there are movies you love that are just plain awful.


My first choice would be "Damnation Alley" with Jan Michael Vincent & George Peppard, but the real star, was their super ATV/RV's.

It was a really bad movie about a post-nuclear Air Force base/silo. and they decide to go cross-country after they hear a radio broadcast.

and "Things to Do in Denver When You Are Dead".
I like this one partly because I grew up in Denver and recognize some of the locations, but I also loved the bizarre characters & great dialogue.
"Give it a name!"
"Buckwheat"
"Boat Drinks"

Big Bad Momma
Paradise
Dancing at the Blue Iguana
Is There Sex After Death?
Eugenie

All of them are rated "R". The last two were originally rated "X"!

Of course there is the movie "Thriller; A Crual Picture". Originally rated "R", the version I got my hands on is an "X". They included some hard core sex clips later. (*whew!* what a movie!)

Night of the Day of the Dawn of the Son of the Bride of the Return of the Revenge of the Terror of the Attack of the Evil, Mutant, Alien, Flesh-eating, Hellbound, Crawling, Zombified, Living Dead: Part II (In Shocking 2-D)

ACTUAL TITLE!

They took the sound away from NOTLD and added some funny voice overs.

"Night of the living Bread" is a hoot too!

"Outland"
"Dog Soldiers"

I don't know if I would call "American Beauty" a guilty pleasure. It did win an Oscar so it was a pretty good movie.
I loved the movie:
Kevin Spacey's Lester
The King of Real Estate
"I will sell this house!"

Great dialogue and funny, with a hint of mystery.

Nope, I just checked. You can get the video though.

Death Race 2000?
That is a great guilty pleasure, 70's nudity, the "hand" grenade, and Sylvester Stallone's best acting ever!

Cannonball is pretty much a must see also. Directed by Paul Bartel (Eating Raoul, Mr McGree the music teacher in RnRHS) also & starring a lot of the same people. Not as goofy as DR2K because it's not set in a scifi near future but much better than the Burt Reynolds Cannonball Run series (not as good as Gumball Rally though).

Any movie with Mary Woronov makes my list.....

If we are going to mention Paul Bartel, I have to include "Eating Raoul", a bizarre update of Arsenic & Old Lace.

Must have seen it a dozen times on cable. It & "Rock N Roll Highschool" seemed to be in constant rotation when we first got cable back in the early '80s (hence the posting name).
