Sooo..I'm bumping this old thread just because after re-reading through everyone's great posts. I come to realize it's one of my favs on here.

So, I'll go ahead and throw another on here since I'm bumping this for good measure.

I'm stepping out of the 80's just by a hair for this next one.

Madhouse (1990)
 -

Just caught this one again recently when it played on one of the Encore channels. This was one I remember liking back in the day. Can't say it still holds the same spark it once did, but it was still fun to watch again.

1. Why it sucks (to the general public)?
Again, like my first pick back on page 1, (UHF), this is another of those off-the-wall kind of comedies that most general viewers will just dismiss as dumb. But if you are a fan of these kind of screwball flicks, then there's a good chance you'll like this one.

2. Why I keep watching?
While I may not be as much of a fan of the screwball comedies as I once was. There are still some like this one that still are passable as funny to me. This one came out in 1990, so I think it still has a good amount of that 80's hangover feel to it that too many films after tried a little "too" hard to preserve. Overall, there are a lot of dumb and cheesy moments in this movie with some pretty mediocre acting to boot. But it still has that nostalgic charm that keeps me watching.

3. Highlight Moment:
Hmmmm? That's hard to say for this one. The whole movie is pretty much like one long running gag. So it's hard to pick a highlight moment. I did always get a kick of how that damn cat never stayed dead though..lol

I had to narrow it down some to not only guilty for mainstream audiences. Most of our favorite films are ridiculed. Instead, I'm having to pick some that 80s obsessed nuts who love "License to Drive" like me might be guilty about admitting they like them.

1. Ultrawarrior

(Starring Dack Rambo and Meshach Taylor...
Watchout for the underground mutants that force their women to "work menial underpaid jobs..." A movie with messages!)

 -

2. Voyage of the Rock Aliens

(While much of the movie is laugh-at-able - I sincerely enjoy much of Rhema's music - It's that cheerful newwave that makes any day a winner! Plus, Craig Sheffer... dreamboat badboy posing with a drugged-up mountain lion!)

 -

3. The Double O Kid

(I used to own a screener copy of this where it would be interrupted by ads asking video stores to buy the value pack (something like 6 copies of the film) and praying Blockbuster would do it. Wallace Shawn saves the day!)


 -
4. Rock and Roll High School Forever

(So many reasons to hate this film, but yet you can't - it's so pitiful... yet so fun! Boomshakalakaraka!)

 -

5. Communion / Dreamscape (Combo!)

(Snakeman? or the Walken? I would love a crossover film... The fun thing I just realized while typing this is that the author of Communion had a radio show called DreamLAND! Crossover title has been confirmed... Countdown to filming... magic begins in... 5,4,3,2 - Ahhh! Greys sticking needles in your face! Ahh! Snakeman hiss attack!)

Reading all these in depth posts on these "bad" movies just makes me want to watch them all all over again. Looks like "Staying Alive" and "Sing" got some of the best responses. But since I feel no guilt because I do love most "bad" 80's movies, I'd like to give my thanks to everyone here for these great picks and suggestions. You all rock!

My top three guilty pleasure movies:

1) Jaws: The Revenge (1987)
I hear many people say it's "One of the worst movies of all time!" Well, actually I'm going to have to disagree with that. I think this film is great.

2) Troll (1986)
The film probably isn't the best, but when I watched it with my friend we both thought it was very entertaining.

3) Stepfather II: Make Room For Daddy (1989)
This film managed to keep me hooked. Jonathan Brandis did a fantastic job. I know it's a sequel to the original Stepfather, but I actually liked this movie. Terry O'Quinn did a great job, too!

I couldn't think of a top five!
