How are ships unlike food?

2. You can have as much as you want, when you want.
3. Cravings can be very specific.
I mean, hello it's not as if there's 'ship police?

I only saw bit of that and I wouldn't actually call it a sequel. It has nothing to do with the characters or story from the first one. It's just set in the same world. As to better...let me just say this. D&D movie - Marlon Waynes = better just automatically. That still doesn't mean it's a good movie but like I said, I only saw part of it. I can't really tell.

I don't know if I have bad taste but I really like a lot of the movies that many of you think are bad. But, just to show that I do have a bad movie that I like to watch (I'm still trying to figure out why) here it goes:

Pee Wee's Big Adventure

EXCUSE ME!!! I'm trying to use the telephone.

Simon: What if he(Mal) tells you to kill me?
Zoe: (without hesitation) I kill you.

Mystery Men

Ben Stiller, William H. Macy. Greg Kinnear: trust me, it's a classic. If you listen closely, you'll laugh your butt off.

Renegades (Kiefer Sutherland and Lou Diamand Phillips bonding)
Toy Soldiers (Sean Astin without 'taters)
Mortal Kombat (Just, well because)
Demolition Man (Sly knitting)
Young Guns 1 (Kiefer and Lou again)
Road House (Swayze carrying around x-rays to make it easier for doctors to fix him up again)
Waterworld (with gills)
Highlander (drunk Connor not realising he's stabbed)

I still contend that Mystery Men is a great movie. It dosn't really do the comic justice but it's still a lot of fun. Oh, and does anyone else think that if, (god forbid) they ever made a live action episode of The Simpsons, William H Macy would be the perfect Ned Flanders.

Black Hole-Campy as hell, still love it.

Watership Down-The most subtly nightmarish animated movie about bunny rabbits EVER. But I may be biased because I love the book too.

Event Horizon- Yeah that's right Event Horizon. Memory serves this was on some peoples 'Most Hated' list on that other thread, but I really liked it. The main reason: the ship. I just love the lengths they went to to design that ship to be as disturbing as possible without making it obvious. Loved it.

You know, I always tell people that you have a favorite movie, and then you have your SECRET favorite movie. My secret fave is definitely Mystery Men. I love all the characters and I make my wife watch it at least once or twice a year. If the Shoveler isn't one of the greatest ssuperheroes in history, I don't know what to make of the world.

By the way, his debate with Ben Stiller over the identity of Captain Amazing is one of my all time favorite movie exchanges.

The BUFFY movie.

Sure, Joss's vision was raped by the director, but his undertones are still evident. Had I never seen the movie, not sure I would've ever tried the series.

So glad I did.

CAVEMAN--with Ringo Starr, Shelley Long, Barbara Bach. Yes, the jokes are adolescent and dumb, but the music rocks. I love it when they are sitting around the campfire jamming. Definitely for anyone who has watched one too many "cavemen invent civilization shows".

Gotta disagree with the characterization of MYSTERY MEN as a bad movie. It's a great movie! If you like a dark, noirish comedy about a bunch of wanna be superheroes, you love this. And the cast is fantab. Geoff Rush as Casanova Frankenstein (stuck in the 70s supervillain), William Macy as The Shoveler, Greg Kinnear as the obnoxious hero, Captain Amazing, Janeane Garafalo as the Goth heroine, The Bowler, who has these conversations with her dead father's skull.

I've been doing some thinking on this, and my top "bad movie that I love anyway" is Pirates of the Caribbean Three: At World's End. I've only seen it once, so it may not stand up on further viewings, but that's the one for now anyway.

Robin Hood: Prince Of Thieves.

Just love the bit where Kevin Costner and Morgan Freeman are strolling along Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland... Somewhat off course for Nottingham and Sherwood Forest!

First saw this in a cinema in Newcastle upon Tyne, where the footage was greeted by the sound of 500 Geordies laughing out loud. (And about ten puzzled people saying, "Ey, I didn't know Robin Hood was from round here, did you, like?")

Time Bandits--Love this movie, but I'm not sure it is considered bad.

Eight legged Freaks--Awesome Show. Laughed hysterically

Tatoo: A Love Story--Saw it on the WB on a Saturday afternoon. Definitely a "b" movie, but I really liked it and couldn't turn away.

My husband and daughter assure me that Chicken Run is horrible, but others tell me that they really like it. I've never watched it, but am tempted. Anyone here have an opinion on that one?

Way too late to be up with the family picnic thing tomorrow. I'm sure I'll enjoy playing "big happy family" for a few hours anyway.

Mike McShane's accent is pretty ropey as Friar Tuck, too.

Liked the treehouses in 'Sherwood Forest', though. They filmed these in Burnham Beeches, just a few miles from where I work. The ancient trees there are so precious that the film company had to build the treehouses without using any nails or anything - everything had to be tied onto the trees.
