Movies you like that one else does aka guilty pleasures


So maybe Walt Disney's The Black Hole ? It's a terrible and terribly interesting, paradoxical movie.

Some old films of that kind may be shielded by childhood nostalgia (The Final Countdown, etc) but I'd have to re-watch them to see on what level they should or shouldn't be defended... Which ones are objectively good, which ones would embarrassingly fall out of grace, and which ones would just retain their aura of psychological comfort...

I grew up on both of these movies. I think Black Hole was a great sci-fi film and the music really good. I learned later that John Barry scored the film. The same composer who did Dances with Wolves.

Also Final Countdown was another great made for TV movie.

OK, how about Cat People?

I like both Showgirls and The Postman, and own both on DVD.

A couple of movies that come to mind for me are Joe's Apartment, which I get why people dislike, and Death to Smoochy, which I don't get the dislike for.

LOVED Death to Smoochy...Edward Norton was brilliant.

BTW, here's my thread on the subject:
