Top 10 movies you should watch ...

If you want to make movies with no redeeming value!

No art house movies, what do you really watch, when nobody is watching? I'll start with a few:

Real Genius
Hell Raiser (minus the last 2)
Army of Darkness
Tremors
The Arrival

and just for fun
Dr. Who (with Tom Baker as the Doctor)
and of course any episode with the Daleks or the Master
and any sidekick you thought was really good looking

Oh and I have to admit, I like 4 weddings and a funeral.

I'll chime in on this one. I won't cop to the redeeming value value proposition (too philosophical), but here's a few that come to mind: Starfighter - Adventures of Buckaroo Bonzai - Attack of the Killer Tomatos - Kentucky Fried Movie - Hollywood Knights - The Cable Guy - My Bodyguard _ and every Rodney Dangerfield flick.

And I'll add:
Oh Brother! Where art thou?
Dogma ( And just about everything else by Kevin Smith)
And just for trippy value, The Naked Lunch

Eric

judging by your list, you'd probably enjoy a classic piece of NZ trash called Bad Taste.

Bad Trash almost sounds familiar. What's it about?

A bunch of aliens want to take over the earth, the usual z grade stuff. If you watch it and then Attack of the Killer Tomatos, I garantee you'll never complain about another movie as long as you live

I love this topic!

- Better of Dead (so funny you will squirt milk through your nose)
- Tape Heads (see above)
- Omega Man (Classic SciFi flick - a must see)
- Warriors (such a cheezy movie from the past, but fun to watch)
- Brazil (kind of an "out there" movie but visual stunning)
- Clerks (best work Kevin Smith ever did IMHO)
- Swingers ("your so money and you don't even know it")

These are a few that come to my distorted mind.

Eight heads in a Dufflebag. Some of Joe Pesci's finest work.

Couple of George Segal specials:"Someone is Killing the Great Chefs of Europe" and "Rollercoaster". Also, "Assault on Precinct 13" (I think it is an early John Carpenter flick).

Whups. That should be "Who is Killing..." But does it really matter?

If you have an interest in movies about making movies, one of the best is "The Stunt Man" with Peter O'Toole as a megalomaniacal director making an anti-war picture, and Steve Railsback as a fugitive who stumbles onto the set and becomes their stunt man. It's surreal and funny, and O'Toole is amazing. A little dated but worth watching.
