    OK, another list for grins.

    You all have a few of these, you know you do. I’m talking about movies that you’ll stop and watch when they happen to be on while flipping through stations.

    They may be half or mostly over…whatever. Sometimes you hang for your favorite part. But you watch. You can’t help it.

    I get that we’ve done a favorite movie list and obviously there’s likely a lot of crossovers. But some of these aren’t always great movies. Some are guilty pleasures. I’m looking for those.

    I’ll start with a couple:

    Stripes (only until the RV part)

    Volunteers (Tom Tuttle from Tacoma…)

    Say Anything (I don’t want to sell anything…)

    “You killed the car.”

    The car they destroyed may have been a replica but it was sure a beautiful one! I still cringe watching that scene.

    This is going to be very telling!

    Any, and I mean ANY of the Underworld movies.

    Vampires, werewolves and Kate Beckinsale in that outfit?

    Who in their right mind would ever change that channel (besides my wife)?

    Oh, and Super Troopers.

    C’mon jdg, your list is smarter than mine by a stretch. Most of those are on mine as well but almost all of them are/have been on the top 100 of all time.

    For the purposes of this “guilty pleasures” list, I can only give you Dirty Dozen and maybe Rounders. But even that’s a cult classic.

    Look at me all sanctioning your choices. Who do I think I am??? ;-)

    Mars Attacks (my first date movie with my husband, my test of how much of a fil-m snob he was. Not much :-) )

    Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the first)

    Anything by Wes Anderson

    The first two are obviously guilty pleasures.

    These two are less guilty: Wes Anderson (Royal Tannenbaums, Grand Budapest Hotel, etc.

    waynster, I’ll watch everything but the last ten minutes of Fifth Element. Too much Ruby Rhod for my taste. But I’ll stop on it every time.

    And I’ll throw this one in as possibly the worst movie on this list: the original Judge Dredd.

    Love the ABC robot scenes and the over the top performances by Sly and Armand Assante. They must have paid Jurgen Prochnow and Max Von Sydow a ton of $ to show up for this one.

    CJ, I love Heat and here’s a much worse movie along the same lines also with De Niro called The Score.

    I’ll watch that movie every time.
