It's funny that in American Pie, the pie ****ing scene is only memorable because it showed how to parent in an awkward situation.

I like all the American Pie movies. I haven't seen the straight to DVD movies. Even though the last two were panned, I thought they had heart and were more relatable than the first two.

The Spice Girls having sex with baked goods?  I'd watch that.

I am not embarrassed by liking the movie, but I watched Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles so much the VHS tape broke and I had to buy another copy.  I recently watched it I think it is the best comic book/ superhero movie of all time.  

 

The only problem is that I watched it on streaming so I didn't get the Pizza Hut commercial.

Beastmaster. 

 

Oh and in some circles Blazing Saddles and Spaceballs and Cannonball Run.

Oh man, I love Beastmaster. I remember it used to be a staple of TNT. They'd play it seemingly every other day.

Smokey and the Bandit 3. Not even Burt Reynolds returned for that one, save for a cameo that was probably contractual.

In showing the kid all my childhood favorites, most went over pretty well. One that did not, and was super embarrassing was Adventures in Babysitting.

To quote the kid: "Why is every black person in this movie a car thief or in a jazz band?"

He's not wrong.

Beastmaster. 

 

 

 

 

Beastmaster! Yes.  Which also reminds me the dude in that is in the original V, so might as well add both of those to my list. 

 

And while I'm at it, I'll add Yor Hunter from the Future, too.   Which is basically Turkish Conan the Barbarian.

What are your thoughts on the Scream sequels, Tank? I still love (and just watched) the original. I watched 4 and it just didn't have any heart. It was like the writers knew what it was like to be young in the 90s, but just had read Facebook posts complaining about the kids today.

2 was good, if not great, and 3 is just a mess.

Ranking them: 1, 2, 4, 3.

I think the sequels go down a notch with each entry. They're okay, but I have only seen each once or twice.

But the original was such a game changer, and I think it holds up.

Slow your roll! :p

 

Embarrassed by =/= not watching it, or not liking it.  V is a total guilty pleasure for me

 

But if Scream is one of the greatest to you, we ARE done here. (obv kidding).

I still haven't seen the last Scream movie.

Scary Movies 1&2. Decent parodies that started a whole trend of parody movies. My favorite and what is IMO the gold standard for parodies..... Not Another Teen Movie.

So is Scream like Friends?  As in, if you watched it when it came out it was awesome and it will always be awesome but if you are just not watching it your like, "wtf if this ****"?  I watched it a few months ago for the first time and almost turned it off it was so bad.  

 

But then again, I think 1990 TMNT is the best superhero movie of all time so who am I to talk.

Like all great horror movies, Scream is a product of its time. That's why horror remakes or sequels made years later don't work. The original captures the psyche of the current time it's made in.

I saw the second Austin Powers movie in a full theater with friends and thought it was hilarious at the time, but now I find the character unbearable. I still like some of the other characters and performances though (Liz Hurley is a good foil in the first one).

 

I'll always love Superman 3. I don't think it's a great movie, but I admire for it being unapologetically daft. Bad Superman is awesome.

 

My only issue with Flight of The Navigator is the child actor not being that endearing.

 

(That's made me think of Explorers for some reason. Need to watch that again.)

 

Highlander is still one of my favorites, mostly for the music and direction.

 

Same for The Last Starfighter... "What do we do?!"... "We die"

 

And Beastmaster, but those humanoid bat monster things gave me nightmares.

 

If I was embarrassed about V (but I only have vague memories of it) then I've have to be embarrassed about lots of other TV shows from the same time, most of which were never made with selling box sets and winning awards in mind.

 

This might be controversial: Top Gun.

 

When I watch it now, it's in a mostly mocking way (same for Titanic). The only thing I like about it now is the aerial filming, but at the time I took it completely seriously and I'm wondering how many people thought it was ridiculous at the time. My embarrassment is like someone not realizing that Starship Troopers was a satire.

 

Generally, things I'm embarrassed about are often because of poor depictions of or exclusion of women and minorities (conscious or unconscious) that I didn't notice or object to at the time (see Tank's post about black people).

Superman III was good up until the stupid super computer in the Grand Canyon thing.  If they had just limited it to Clark VS Bad Supes, with some different B plot with Richard Pryor and Budget Lex Luthor (whatever his name was),  it would have been a lot better. 

 

There's no defending Superman 4, though.

 

Here are some other guilty pleasures of mine that occurred to me:

 

Waterworld

Alien VS Predator (1 NOT 2):  It's bad, but I like it anyway.  Even though it really isn't canon, especially since Prometheus came out, I consider it a "what if" tale.

Terminator 3:  Other than Talk to the hand, I actually liked it. 

Jurassic Park 3:  For me, it's hard to eff up a dino movie where people get eaten. 

Fantastic 4 (2005 version):  I actually liked it.

The Hostel trilogy: Just so Tank's head explodes...this is one of the greatest horror trilogies in the last 15-20 years.   Not really, actually.  But I like them

Yeah I didn't have much use for FF 2: RTSS.  Silver Surfer looked cook, but the rest of the movie was a mess, especially Galactus.  But I thought FF1 was pretty good.  Not great by any standard, but I enjoyed it as much as a middle tier MCU movie.  

 

The Toy could never be made today.  Or 20 years ago, even.
