Twister. The amount of times I've watched it must be over 50 by now. I grew up a weather fanatic, so that was an obvious favorite despite my ever-growing criticisms of it's scientific inaccuracies as I got older. A somewhat cheesy thriller movie that had some spectacular computer effects for the 90's.
Funnily enough, Into The Storm, even with all of the effort in detail, meteorological explanations, and attempt at realistic story-telling, it ended up being dumber and more unrealistic than Twister.
Totally. The other entries in the series are uhhh-beyond subpar...at least to me ^^You are not alone...
I grew up with loads of the toys and the old cartoons.
It was so good to see a modern take on them. Quite often I find the first film of a series the best before they start to milk it a little.
I don't think that's a guilty pleasure since most people I've seen and critics all sort of liked the movie; now the sequels were liked by nobody and if you liked one of those then that's a good guilty pleasure to talk about.
I'm not sure about how the critics received these, but here are a few my favorite movies in no particular order that don't strike me as mainstream...
Critters (and the sequels)
masters of the Universe
Flight of the Navigator
Secret of Nymph
Jurassic Park III
I love this movie.
Waterworld...I freaking love that movie and it was considered the biggest flop in cinema history for years.
When I was young (and to this day still do), I use to watch Warriors of Virtue and loved it because it had kangaroos that used martial arts and represented the Chinese nature elements. Because at that time, I just craved anything 'Asian' since being Japanese, there wasn't much good representation of us at the time. Even got the novelized version of the movie and the YA series in which the Warriors went back to their hometown to deal with problems arising.
And yeah, today while I can see the problematic stuff in it and criticize it, I still love it anyways. In fact, I had a fan comic for it planned out (the original Warriors take on disciples, the Newcomer is a Chinese girl, etc) but... Then I got embarrassed for writing that and dropped it.
Deep down I wouldn't mind seeing a more mature anime of that, but only if they bring up "shit happens" once or twice.
As for my own little guilty pleasures... Let me get back to you on that one.
