I'm sometimes ridiculed on the internet even by B-movie lovers for liking Ilsa: She-Wolf of the SS.

In real life I am constantly looked at as a weirdo for being a fanatic of The X-Files.

Just a few:

Cabin Boy - wouldja like to buy a monkey?
Pootie Tang - wa da tah.  Tasty Heavy Pork Chunk Cereal.  It's a great product!
Videodrome - my wife might not have married me if I had revealed my love of this movie before our wedding..."weird look" doesn't come close to the level of hatred she has for it.   TeddyR
Jekyll and Hyde the Musical - don't hassel the Hoff.

Had a girlfriend end the relationship after being introduced to Videodrome.  True story.  The film is fantastic, but I guess to the more "normal" people out there, its terrifying!

Why does she hate Videodrome so much?

She doesn't have the stomach for Cronenberg in general, but I think the "Gun in the Stomachgina" scene is where I lost her specifically on this one.

There's always at least one of "those" scenes in a Cronenberg movie, and anybody who has seen them will know immediately just from the movie title.  (Quick, someone who has seen THE BROOD - name that scene!  TeddyR )

I think there might be some Family Guy crossover hatred though.  James Woods is in several Family Guy episodes, which drive my wife insane because Peter is so stupid.  So she hates James Woods by proxy, and hence Videodrome.  That's my theory, anyway.

She likes to watch the overly funny / silly bad movies with me (usually anything from MST3K is a winner with her), but the ones that are really gross, or are funny because they are trying to be deep, those are the ones I lose her on.

try watching the old Gamera films, or any of the Godzilla films with his son, and see how long can you watch without laughing.

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 freaking LOVED Shoot 'em Up. And it looks incredible on Blu-ray. No, I'm not joking. Where else will you find a near-pornographic sex scene with non-stop gunfire AND the lovers never skip a beat. THAT is awesome!

The one that ALWAYS gets strange looks is BLOOD FREAK, which most people just ignore until I tell them it is the only Christian all-gore, anti-drug horror movie with a turkey monster that drinks the blood of hippies.  Oddly enough, even though I get strange looks, most people find that compelling and will often bring it up again, usually around Thanksgiving.

I've got many such movies, but most of the time, the funny look is because the movie is old, obscure and completely outside the person's experience. Of the mainstream movies that people have actually seen, I'd have to say The Last Action Hero. Yes, it was kind of a flop, and yes, the kid was annoying, and yes, the whole magic ticket thing was dumb. But for the most part, it was a pretty spot-on parody of 80s action movies with some very clever gags.

The reaction that baffles me the most is my brother, Dave, who saw The Last Action Hero with me in 1993 and laughed as much as anyone. Today, I could start an argument with him by calling it a good movie. Weird.

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

Wow. I also gave out NRNS to a few friends as a gag for Christmas one year. Made a DVD with the chapters being some of the most hilarious parts. Some got it, some didn't. Cool as Ice was another stocking stuffer. It got a much warmer reception.

I tell all my mates about my Italian Cannibal Films and they look at me like I'm a sicko! Come on man Italian cannibal films are the holy grail of gore films and they almost are all adventure films too. Best of both worlds in my opinion!

It funny because I own heaps of slasher DVD's and in my opinion slasher movies have a meaner spirit about them because a slasher movie scenario can happen anywhere anytime in any country. These Italian cannibal films are more like doco studies on ancient tribes and stuff in my opinion. Bit of a history lesson!

"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 movie's awesome, but definitely hard to sell people on.

"King Arthur" and "Hot Rod" are the the ones my friends give me grief for.  Oh, and Cronenberg's "Crash" - Cronenberg in general, really.

That one at least has the benefit of being a Stephen King story with Morgan Freeman. As long as people haven't seen it or had the plot described to them, you might escape the funny looks. Mention aliens shooting out people's butts, and all is lost. TeddyR

Dark Knight Rises? Worst Movie EV-ER!


« Reply #29 on: August 27, 2010, 04:33:54 PM »

Haven't been on in awhile, sorry to those on the the rare chance that you missed me.

Anyway, some of you may know that my most favorite movie of all time is "The Cable Guy" starring Jim Carrey and Matthew Broderick.

I've loved it ever since I was 7 and I am now 20 and I simply never tire of it.

Somewhere along my early teenage years I learned that a lot of people/critics didn't like it. Even now people ask me, "You're ALL TIME FAVE really?".

And yes it is, it just speaks to me, and in my humble opinion is a perfect black comedy.
