Either Tango & Cash or The Last Boy Scout. That switch from the end of the 80s to the start of the 90s was a confusing time.

I’ve thought about The Toy before. It deals with race relations and the way the system is rigged against minorities. Yes it’s over the top and you can’t do certain things anymore (the white kid actually “buys” Pryor and they ship him in a crate to the house.) But the film’s message is relevant now more than ever.

I think everyone watching that as a kid did. Hell I still do. Except for that boxing robot.  :no:

I wanted the pool house from the Legend of Billy Jean. Also, while I havent seen that since I was a kid, from what I remember of the plot, I think that the film would sit well with modern culture. It deals with an exploitive old dude ripped right out of the #metoo movement, then the heroine and her friends go on a real Robin Hood adventure mixed with a lot of coming of age drama.

So, is this thread about movies you like/love, but are embarrassed to admit to anybody?  If that is the case, then here is my list.

 

 

 

 

 

The list is blank.

Honestly, AOTC is still one of my favorite SW films.

I don't just think AOTC is the worst SW movie, I feel like it's literally one of the worst movies ever made.

:shrug:

 

Some combination of nostalgia for my life at the time the movie came out, 20 year-old-me's love for Hayden Christensen, the feeling I get whenever all the lightsabers begin igniting in the crowds on Geonosis, the ridiculously cheesy dialog, the girl-power-ness of seeing Padme handling **** while Anakin was still whining about them, and the giddiness of seeing Yoda bounce around while fighting. I'm not saying those are good things by any means, but it still makes it one of my favorites to watch. 

I do not admit this outside of this forum and the sanctity of my marriage though...

It's ok. I hold the very unpopular opinion that TPM is the best prequel movie.

One person's AOTC is another person's TLJ!  

 

And BTW, AOTC's space scene of Obi Wan VS Jango, and the following Kamino Obi Wan VS Jango are some of the best Star Wars scenes ever, IMHO.  

 

 

It's ok. I hold the very unpopular opinion that TPM is the best prequel movie.

While I can't agree,  I do think it does have one of the greatest Star Wars duels, ever.  
 
TPM would have worked better as Episode 0 or a spin off movie.

I wish I had one of those to forget TLJ exists.

I know it isn't good, but I actually kind of enjoy the Final Frontier. More than Insurrection or Nemesis, which I barely even remember.

What?  How can you forget Data and Picard singing the HMS Pinafor?  That's some good chit, Maynard.  :hmm:

Beastmaster. 

The first few times when I'd see Coming to America I'd think, there's Seth from Beastmaster! It's been so long since Beastmaster that it's the opposite now. I can't see John Amos as anyone but Cleo McDowell.

Can we include TV shows? I finally tried The IT Crowd and have to say I do not get why everyone loves it. I felt really embarrassed watching it.

I figured the IT Crowd was similar to some aspects of Twin Peaks. There appears to be an intentional effort to have borderline horrid acting coupled with ridiculousness. When I first watched them, both shows took a bit of getting used to for me, because of that apparent intention. That said, I totally love Twin Peaks, but yeah... it is tough to recommend to normies.

I like it, but not in love with it.  I normally HATE sit-coms (or Brit humor, for that matter), but considering I work in that industry, it is funny  to me at times.  It's good for a binge watch or two, and that's about it.  Sort of like Office Space or the Office for people who work in, well, an office.   If I didn't work around tech, I probably wouldn't like IT Crowd, either.

It felt very British to me. Faulty Towers awkward.
