Let the guilt sink in
March 24, 2011 § Leave a comment
Guilty pleasure movies. Come on now, we all have them. For me, it’s one of two things: 1) a movie I proudly proclaim to enjoy because the ridiculousness of liking it is humorous or 2) a movie I never claim to enjoy for fear of total and complete ridicule from my brother and father (both of which enjoy quality film). As I was coming up with this list, I found fairly difficult – it’s much more difficult for a girl to find guilty pleasures, than a guy. Guys are guilty for liking Titanic or Shakespeare in Love. Let me tell you right now, gentlemen, if it won an Oscar, there’s no shame. Embrace it.
1. Con Air
Can we please talk about what’s going on with Nicholas Cage’s hair? Yeah, I’m not sure either. But let’s be real, we all enjoy a little Con Air from time to time
When Liv Tyler talks to her dad, Bruce Willis, for the final time… tears. Everytime.
3. Center Stage
I don’t have much shame over this movie, I was a dancer for many, many years. You should have more guilt if you are a dancer and haven’t seen this. Nevertheless, this is such a terrible movie for so many reasons, but I can’t get enough.
4. Bring It On
“Oh, it’ll be brought.”
I will proudly say I love this movie. Certainly, makes my brother and I laugh consistently. “At the Derek Zoolander Center For Children Who Can’t Read Good And Wanna Learn To Do Other Stuff Good Too, we teach you that there’s more to life than being really, really ridiculously good-looking.”
Thanks to Split Reel for the inspiration!
