Friday film guilty pleasures poll
Nothing at all guilty about Bugsy Malone!
I genuinely love Four Weddings and a Funeral. This often provokes surprising reactions in people. I don’t care, I think its brilliant and I’m the worst kind of pretentious arthouse film snob. 😀
Either that or Coming To America for me. Pinnacle of Eddie Murphy’s career IMO, including his standup. The barbershop boxing debate makes me laugh uncontrollably.Posted 5 years ago
I really love all the John Hughes “brat pack” films from the mid 80s. Breakfast Club, Pretty in Pink, Ferris Bueller etc. Saw them all at the cinema first time around with my mates and they really struck a chord with us all. Not because our lives were anything remotely like those of the characters in the films (far from it), but because they seemed to be fairly insightful about being a teenager around that time.Posted 5 years agoigrfMember
In no particular order, I love them all, the Mrs thinks I should be more grown up.
Waynes World 2
Dude Where’s My Car
Drop Dead Gorgeous
Guilty pleasure, will watch them again and again and…Posted 5 years agospawnofyorkshireSubscriber
@IHN you need to watch Anchorman a couple of times to build up the appreciation, i wasn’t that fond first time i saw it but now think it’s brilliant
My two guilty pleasures are Blade and Blade 2. A lot of fond drunken memories of watching them at 3am when back from a night on the pop with my mates at uniPosted 5 years agogrievoustimMember
I watched Taken the other day with Liam Neeson for what must be the third or fourth time.
It is ridiculous, and xenophobic (us girls travel to Europe and are sold into white slavery within minutes), and really quite racist
But I love it
Bryan: I don’t know who you are. I don’t know what you want. If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don’t have money. But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career. Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you. If you let my daughter go now, that’ll be the end of it. I will not look for you, I will not pursue you. But if you don’t, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
Marko: [after a long pause] Good luck.exilegeordieMember
Not sure if it qualifies as a guilty pleasure, but I love Black Rain and have watched it countless times. Probably not Ridely Scott’s most acclaimed movie, but I think Michael Douglas (I know!) and Andy Garcia make a really good team.
Oh, and the preponderance of muchos bike action probably appeals as well.
Perhaps not the most politically correct film either, but it’s my go-to film when Mrs Geordie makes herself scarce.Posted 5 years agoigrfMember

Nothing guilty about this – its a bona fide classic!
Point Break if there is any guilt it’s not watching it with total joy (although there are a few cringe moments round bonfires and at parties) ‘Cut my first tube’ is the classic delivery at exactly the right moment in all cinema history. Required viewing in GRF Towers, all must stay silent.. Classic movie, so classic it’s now our address here… That and also what it is..Posted 5 years ago
