I did a search for "movies," and there seemed to be no topic devoted specifically to cheesy movies. So...

What are your favorite cheesy movies? If you would like to say so, why?

And to make posts a bit longer, what's your favorite movie or movies, and why?

As for me:

Favorite cheesy movies:

Dog Soldiers. It's soldiers...versus werewolves...that just strikes me as awesome. Plus, there's a really bad Matrix joke in here that just gets me every time.

Shaolin vs. Ninja. I love ninja, and more generally martial arts, movies. Shaolin vs. Ninja is not only great because it's monks versus ninja, but also because the translators couldn't translate the Chinese in the latter part of the movie. So, they made up the translation as they went along. At least, they did so in the version I had.

Starship Troopers. Good special effects, and the soldiers are so silly it makes me laugh. Plus, I have a strange fascination with mass deaths in cheesy movies (I love disaster flicks). Unfortunately, from what I hear, the book is really good, which will probably take away from the enjoyment of hte movie once I read it.

Reign of Fire. British survivers and half-crazy American soldiers versus large, fire-breathing dragons in the future. Once again, just strikes me as awesome.

There's probably more, but this is the best I can think of right now.

Favorite Movies

The Road Warrior. I almost put this in cheesy movies, but I just can't. It's just too good...

Braveheart. I like the battle scenes, the action, the story, and the actors. And it's a great movie to watch late at night for background noise while I read.

Band of Brothers. Yes, not a real movie, but if it were to be shown in a movie theater straight, I would definitely go see it. Perhaps the best modern WWII "film" I've ever seen.

12 Angry Men. Excellent movie about a jury deliberating over a murder case. The character interactions are dynamic, but not over the top.

Frailty. It's a really good movie that most people I talk to don't know of. If you haven't seen it, I suggest you do so. The gist of it is this: A boy's father receives a vision, supposedly from God, telling him that the end is coming and that he and his two sons have been chosen to rid the world of demons Lucifer has set forth in preparation for the end of times. These demons are in the guise of humans. There's so much more to the movie (it's a suspense), but the part that seals the deal for me is the interaction between the boy (who is trying to convince his father not to go through with this) and the father (who is trying to convince his boy to do what he views as the right thing). Both characters are really, really well done, and their interaction just pulls at me.

So, that's it. Anyone else?

Hurcules in New York- Do NOT under any circumstances see this movie. It's Schwartzeneggar's first flick and the acting is horendous. I'd rather have my wee wee put into a vise than have to sit through that again.

PS, shouldn't this be in Media?

Mars Attacks, best scifi movie ever. Anything from MST3K is cheesy in the utmost extreme.

And yes, this should be in media.

I'm not really one on cheesy movies, actually.

I will post my favorites, though.

Pulp Fiction

Seriously, this is QT's masterpiece. The acting is incredible, the script is sharp as a tack, there are a lot of classic one liners, and the soundtrack was just as much a character as Travolta or Jackson. This movie has just as much style as substance (which is to say a lot) and I'm still wondering what's in the brief case.

Kill Bill Vol. 1 & 2

Yeah, these are great slaughter flicks done by the master. Man I love these flicks. O Ren Ishii was a total badass. Long live the Crazy 88!

Pretty much anything by Disnar and Pixie. Including Shrek, though it's a different company.

These movies are great, plain and simple.

The Lord of the Rings Trilogy

Hot damn. That's all I have to say.

Who Framed Roger Rabbit?

This movie is great, ground breaking, and hilarious.


Anyway, that's about it. I'm sure there are others, but I don't feel like listing them right now.

Yeah, but those two and Pulp Fiction are my fovorites. Those I can watch hundreds of times and not get bored with. I'm also a big fan of Kevin Smith films, particularly Clerks.

I've always thought The Warriors was a pretty cheesy movie, but it's so cheesy that I can't help but love it.

If it's quality cheese you're after look no further than the Evil Dead trilogy or anything produced by Troma. It's also well worth your while looking at what Peter Jackson did before Lord of the Rings.

Heh, I saw Shaolin vs. Lama the other day. It was awesomely bad, I love it. Especially since they were too cheap to hire, say, actual actors to read the scripts, so it sounds like they just pulled in whoever was passing. Also, right at the end and for no immediately obvious reason, the bad guy shouted "I am the Devil! I must die to prove that Buddha exists!" and snapped his own neck.

i'm a big b-movie geek. here are some of my favourites:

wild wild planet- alien women turn people into dolls, smuggle them off the planet and take them home to harvest there organs.
the wild world of batwoman- batwoman and her girls try to stop the evil ratfink from stealing the "atomic hearing aid", but he slips a dancing potion in there soup so that they must gogo dance instead.
santa conquers the martians- santa is kidnapped by martians. i hear ben edlund has been in the works to do a remake on this one!
split second- about a demon committing ritualistic murders in future-day london. stars rutger hauer and kim cattrall.
evil dead trilogy- bruce campbell. sam raimi. need i say more?
darkman trilogy- the first one (and best) was a creation of sam raimi and starred liam neeson- about a guy that gets his face burned off and becomes a sort of vigilante. the other two were cheap sequels, but the second one mentions saskatchewan which makes me feel all warm and gooey inside.
devil bat- bela lugosi creates a giant bat that will kill anyone wearing a certain cologne 'cause he feels he wasn't getting enough respect.
them!- giant ants taking over the world.
the crawling hand- i've only seen this one with mst3k, but it's so great! a disembodied hand goes around strangling people for no reason!
jesus christ vampire hunter- sacrilishious and just plain weird! jesus beats up 40-odd atheists that were stuffed into 1 suv then talks to his dad via an ice cream sundae! also, jesus makes a speech at the end about how it's ok to be gay!
uhf- weird al becomes the manager of an almost bankrupt uhf station. has stuff even more bizarre than jesus christ vampire hunter in it.

Clash of the Titans

Theee lamest movie ever, but pretty much everyone I know has seen it.
Fave movies:
Lord of the Rings by Ralph Bakshi, as well as Wizards by the same.

Ooh, now that I think on it, Timeline was really bad. Well, it was good, but the acting was bad and the plot went too fast in some places.

And Paycheck was...interesting.

Fave movies:

The Last Samurai
Spirited Away
The Matrix was cool
Pirates of the Carribean, of course
Lord of the Rings, the one everyone watches, because I pretty much have to
Shrek 1 and 2
I haven't seen Stepford Wives or Dodgeball yet, but they're supposed to be good

And Austin Powers!!! Funny stuff, funny stuff.

The Grinch was a miserable movie in and of itself, not to mention a perversion of a Dr. Seuss classic.

If you liked either the original or remake of The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, do not, do not, DO NOT watch any of the sequals ever, ever, ever, f*cking ever. TCM stands well alone by itself. Combined with TCM 2-4, on the other hand, and the whole series looks like utter hell.

My boyfriend likes them both. He says the remake and the original are excellent and the remake totally did it justice. He knows his films. He's got millions of DVDs and used to work in a production studio in London. I trust his opinin however I don't really like slasher flicks (classic or not) so it's neither good nor bad to me laugh.gif

If fact Return of the Killer Tomatoes is cheesyier (that a word? it is now! wink.gif ). It also has Mr G. Clooney in it as a very young actor.

Deathstalker 2 (lots of killings and some boobs too), seriously catchy tune.

Best movies

Clerks
The Breakfast Club

They speak for themselves.

OHHHHH forgot "Better off Dead" is in both that's a John Cusack classic too. smile.gif

God, I hated The Breakfast Club! I thought it was so melodramatic, and none of that would have ever happened. I don't like movies that try really hard to be all about real life, but then end up being some big cliche. Like that ridiculous movie. Especially when I'm-Oh-So-Scarred pulls up his leather jacket or whatever he's got on and goes, "That looks like a burn about the size of a cigar, doesn't it?!" or whatever he says. People aren't really like that. And chica McGee who didn't talk... gah, I dunno, I just thought it was a bad movie, but everyone raves about it.

And I'm-So-Scarred and Rusty making out would've never happened either. Any teenie bopper like her would've been repulsed by a guy who hadn't showered in days.
