Movies you're embarrassed about?

Makes me wonder if my kids were being polite when they said they liked it when we watch it together. lol I know that my daughter had particularly negative thoughts about Karate Kid, but when I asked her after watching it she was all, yeah, good, whatever. Hmm. I guess I should have clued into the whatever part.

I'm sorry. Did you at least find a good home for her, or did you just kick her out?

LOL Thank you, that really tickled me. TBH a small part of me might have had a thought like that flash thru my mind. ;-)

I'll defend Superman 2, but 3 and 4 were pretty damn awful back when they were new.
Jaws 3: horrible movie. Embarrassed to say I used to like it.
As a kid I loved Superman 3 and Jaws 3D. I don't care for Jaws anymore, but Supes 3 is still a guilty pleasure. The evil Superman vs Clark throwdown in the junkyard is still pretty awesome.

I'll proudly acknowledge my love for Scream, but they got progressively worse. I thought 4 was on the verge of being good but crapped out at the end. The original inhabits the 90s in a way that a lot of movies from that era don't. So I love it and Can't Hardly Wait for that reason.

Anyways, on-topic: I rather enjoyed Man of Steel. I felt it had heart and portrayed the Superman mythos in a way that was at once fresh and familiar. Of course, that was before it was immediately trashed by its awful sequels. I kind of feel weird for liking it because of all the crap it's gotten.
And, I suppose, the Star Wars prequels. Really, I only started to see their flaws after the fact, as everyone pointed them out, and have been a cynical moviegoer ever since. I wish I could recapture that innocence I had before. Still, I enjoy watching them, and I especially love all the excellent EU content they ushered in, exploring new and exciting eras.
Also, I love Spice World. Yes, it's stupid and makes no sense, but dammit, I love the Spice Girls! (And I'm still manly enough to beat up your dad.)
