Hudson Hawk...yeah, I liked Hudson Hawk.

When I was younger, I came across a Betamax at a yard sale that came with an ass load of tapes. Amongst the tapes the dude had recorded Hudson Hawk. I would watch it endlessly...

I too enjoyed Hudson Hawk, it's just one those films that's so strange that you can't help but enjoy it on some level.


A famous turkey, that Hudson Hawk. I don't remember it particularly well (I haven't seen it since it played in theaters -- I was 10!) but do remember the experience of being confused throughout most of it. I was convinced it was a sequel to a movie that hadn't ever been made.

Hudson Hawk caused me to whistle "Swinging on a Star" ever since. I can't say that's a bad thing. Those around me can.

I'd like to nominate "Tremors" to my lovable 'bad' list. -It's not really that bad, is it?

Starship Troopers 1 and 3.

I've heard arguments that the original is actually a deeply-subversive film, but I've watched the movie 20 times and I don't buy that argument at all. It's an Aliens clone with bad acting and a fairly eye-rolling romantic triangle. But you know what, it's good fun. As is the unbelievably bad but tongue-in-cheek (I hope) second sequel.

The Happening, but I don't love it in a "so bad it's good" kind of way, I genuinely believe it IS a GOOD film.

My 8/10 review: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0949731/usercomments-1212

If so, you shouldn't feel guilty :)

Oh, well, in that case...

Michael Bay movies. They're just so damn entertaining at times. I mean, even though Transformers 2 was pretty bad, I cannot help but be entertained by the action sequences (though the final fight scenes involving Optimus Prime are near-incomprehensible thanks to the idiotic camera-work and editing).

haha, in this forum I must definitely go for Twilight :D :D - but only the 1st movie.
Probably I am not (yet? :)) very reasonable, maybe it was just the new, unexpected, handsome face and intriguing "holding-back" from the male lead? Having just watched a lot of TV lately, switching channels and occasinally seeing some movies with some love scenes - always, I repeat, always it was the other way around.
booooooring ;)
And I really loved the alternative approach (that it was so not-a-real-big-movie), colours and very much the choice of music (which made almost half of the movie for me).
Maybe one day I will be "cured", only time can tell ... :)
