- Confession time, whats your most embarrassing favorite film?
To be honest, I’m not embarrassed by any film I like. Films I like that people might think should embarass me may be:
Final Fantasy Advent Children
Conan The Barbarian
Aliens v Predator
…..and btw, I think Cool Runnings and Convoy were both very good films.Posted 9 years agoFlaperonSubscriber
CountZero – I agree, Simon Tooky only seems to like soppy emotional claptrap with minimal explosions and lots and lots of touchy-feely character development. Ergo, he and I have opposite tastes in movies and I tend to go to watch anything he pans.
I have a very simple scoring system which involves taking the body count, multiplying it by the number of killer robots, and adding a bonus 10 points if it involves time travel. Witty one-liners are worth 5 points each.Posted 9 years agoRudeBoyMember
I loved Amelie, when I thought it would be some soppy poncy crap. It was not. It was a bloody good little film.
I was completely blown away by Wall-E. Although previous Pixar offerings have been excellent, I did watch it with the mind that it was a ‘kids’ film. Is it ****. One of the best animated films ever made, and a bloody good little film.
I personally think Rita, Sue and Bob Too is a monument of British Cinematic History. I get some funny looks when I tell people that. It is, however, a bloody good little film.
Of course, I like yer 2001, yer Godfather, yer Bergman classics, yer Poklips Now, bit of cerebral ‘World Cinema’, etc.
But a good film is a good film. If it entertains you then it’s done it’s job.
Blair Witch project was utter shit. People ran screaming from cinemas watching it? I fell asleep.Posted 9 years ago2unfit2rideSubscriber
For me its Convoy, literally just watched it & it’s still great (in my mind), what’s yours?
Oh & if anyone asks, I never really, really, liked the best homo erotic film of the eighties involving an aircraft carrier, I can just recite it word for word for some strange reason 🙁

Kill Bill vol 1 & 2… Probably my fave films ever still. I know people ridicule them cos they’re way OTT, but I think it’s the depth of character and the bitterness behind each story that I love. That and I grew up with a mad crush on Uma Thurman which is still going strong today! Funnily enough my ex GF looked quite a lot like her too!
One film I used to love, but haven’t seen in a few years right now, is an Australian Classic… Priscilla Queen of the Desert… Just one of the silliest films ever! A film all about a load of Drag Queens on tour, can you get any more embarrassing?
Got to confess that when Love Actually comes on every Christmas (as it does) I sit down and watch it too. A bit twee, but it’s a very good feel good film that crosses all ages/sexes/beliefs/religions very well.
Still love the original 3 Star Wars films (episodes 4,5 and 6).
I absolutely love the Alien series, including even the silly but action filled Alien Vs Predator. The best one though is Aliens, ie. the 2nd film. Again, plenty of people hate them, but I think they’re ace.
And I have to confess (VERY quietly mind) to actually having enjoyed Bridget Jones 1 & 2. Sssshhhhhhhh… YES, I am heterosexual! I avoided them both at all costs for a number of years based on the fact that I am a man, but eventually had the first one forced upon me a few years ago. Shortly after ended up going to see the 2nd at the Cinema! Yes, it’s totally over indulgent crap, but it kinds makes you feel warm inside for some reason!

Why would anyone be embarrassed about “The Big Blue”. It’s a classic.
Now “Love Actually”, a film so sugary that you could stand a teaspoon up in it. If you were to admit to liking that then that would be embarrassing. No way would a cynical middle aged engineer like that.
No way.Posted 9 years ago
