Being movie lovers of open minded and varied tastes, means we often get looked at weird for liking movies that most people either just don't get or to B-movieish for most people to like.

I always get made fun of for liking Legend. Mostly when people see that movie they see the unicorns and the hear the Tangerine dream sound track and think the movie is super gay. I don't watch the movie because of unicorns or tangerine dream (actually I watch the directors cut with out the theatrical releases crappy Tangerine Dream soundtrack) I watch it because its got some of the coolest monsters and evil villains I've ever seen. Tim Currys portrayal of the devil is one of the most awesome depictions of the prince of darkness that I've ever seen.

Another is Monsturd. Monsturd is one of those movies you have to be a true lover of B-movies to love.The movie is low budget and indeed bad, but its meant to be like that and uses its low budget and ridiculous story to great effect. It also has the greatest pick up line of all time.

Lagomorphs: menace or underutilized resource?

I don't usually get funny looks, because most people haven't seen the movies I like. But I'll go ahead and throw out that I really enjoyed Mom and Dad Save the World, and when I found that Wal-Mart was selling them for $4, I bought a couple of copies to force on people. Now people kind of just won't much talk to me about it.  BounceGiggle

I've got one friend who will watch all the weird stuff I tell him about, and he likes a lot of it. Of course, he's not very discerning: he thought that Meet the Spartans was absolutely hilarious. So I have to be careful when watching the movies he gives me. Is that movie snobbery or what?

he thought that Meet the Spartans was absolutely hilarious.

The only part in that film that I found funny was the Yo Mama fight with Sean Maguire saying "Yo Mama so hairy, the only language she understands is Wookie!"  BounceGiggle

A few years ago we used to have "Cinema Lunch" at my office.  Someone would bring in a DVD and we'd play it on a laptop and project the movie onto a white board in the conference room.  Everyone would bring in their lunch and we would watch half the movie one day and the other half the next day.  Of course, I would bring in most of the movies . . .

One day I brought in BELA LUGOSI MEETS A BROOKLYN GORILLA.  My co-workers could not believe it was a real movie . . . and could not believe I owned it.

Others that left everyone in disbelief were TEENAGE CAVEMAN with Robert Vaughn and THE VIKING WOMEN AND THE SEA SERPENT.

Hudson Hawk. That's the most mainstream movie that most of the people I know have heard of although admitting to liking Shoot-em Up has gotten not just weird looks but a couple of angry ones.
  I actually like Bela Lugosi meets a Brooklyn Gorilla. I don't try and figure out why, I'm probably better off not knowing,  I just go with it.

Some people've found it strange that Babe: Pig in the City is one of my favorite films.  I think it's brilliant!

Not a huge favorite of mine, but I certainly can appreciate it's weird setting and dreamlike quality. It has more in common with the films of Jeunet and Caro than the original Babe. Very enjoyable.

When I picked up the following, I received kind of strange looks from the female cashier:

"Bubba Ho-Tep." I think the weird looks come mostly from my attempts to both explain the plot and the fact that there actually is some depth and touching moments in that movie.

That's my answer, though I'll add they haven't even heard of the movies I like.

"Clive [Barker]'s idea of a great time is to have a nightmare about a woman with three heads and no skin who flays your body with a pitchfork. To give you some idea, NIGHTBREED has over 200 pus monsters, including one guy with a crescent moonhead like the McDonald's commercial and a fat guy with snakes that pop out of his stomach and eat your face off, and these are the GOOD GUYS. These are the people we're supposed to LIKE."-Joe Bob on NIGHTBREED

Mean Girls (2004).

People always groan when spotting the DVD in my collection. I think it's a fun, entertaining movie  Smile

All of them... But the ones that live on, so far, in infamy is Galactic Gigolo and The Forbidden Zone, both of which may cause my friend's brains to implode...

I got alot of good reactions with Howling 2.  Especially during the werewolf threesome/orgy scenes and the knife throwing dwarf.  I get good reactions with any Reb Brown movie actually.

But the movies that get the biggest reactions are Cool as Ice, Invasion From Inner Earth, Troll 2, Ghoulies and that 1986 van damme karate movie "No Retreat, No Surrender".  I gave everybody a copy of NRNS for Christmas one year and they just shook their heads when I handed it to them.   TeddyR
