My top 3


1. Flash Gordon (the 1980 film)


So much cheesy over-acting in this movie but there's no denying that the Queen soundtrack is first rate and Brian Blessed is awesome even when playing an over the top campy role! Oh, and Max von Sydow IS Ming. smile



2. Phantom of the Paradise


Weird, bizarre, fascinating, disturbing and funny all at the same time.



3. Battle Beyond the Stars

Essentially "Seven Samurai" in space with some pretty good special effects and some great one-liners from Robert Vaughn and George Peppard. smile

He was great too in "A Princess Bride" but Piper is still my number 1!

My guilty pleasure:

Barb Wire (1996)

And I went all in when I realized that "Die Cheerleader", one of my favourite bands of all time, are featured as in-house musicians for Barb Wire's club and on soundtrack.

Bruce Campbell (as an Elvis impersonator) and Ossie Davis (as JFK, who not only survived Dallas but was made black all over), discover that their fellow old folk's home residents are not dying of natural causes, but an ancient threat come back to life.

Point Break. The original one with Keanu Reeves and Patrick Swayze, of course. Hilariously over-acted with lots of cheesy moments, my favourite of which is the world's longest free-fall before pulling the rip cord. Still, good old-fashioned fun!


In all my years I've never seen the like. It has to be more than a hundred sea miles and he brings us up on his tail. That's seamanship, Mr. Pullings. My God, that's seamanship!

Bruce Campbell is a damn fine actor, classy, honest, and one funny SOB.

Bruce Campbell for President!

I don't know that diving in some pool after bricks has to do with FBIing, but YEEHAW!

"Ice Pirates", "Bubba Ho-tep", "Army of Darkness" are great picks, "They Live!", and "Toxic Avenger" maybe a little less so, but still.

I guess "The Thing" (Carpenter Remake) counts as a B-movie; "The Warriors" probably deserves mentioning, but my personal little B gem is another Bruce Campbell flick, "Terminal Invasion".

- Has body-moving Aliens, so pretty much every character during the course of the film is "it" at some point, which makes for great paranoia.
- Has the most honest and succinct motive in film history why Aliens would want to invade Earth.
- Has Bruce Campbell


"Dagon" (Spanish film) is an excellent adaptation of "The Shadow over Innsmouth" by HP Lovecraft, in a modern setting, and delivers the pun with gusto.

"Vampire Party" (French) is extremely conventional in concept, but perfect in execution, with a surprisingly simple yet novel solution by a bad guy how to find his victim hiding among many dozen other victims.

"From Dusk Till Dawn" definitely is a "guilty pleasure" B.

"High Plains Drifter" (first Eastwood-directed film, I think) certainly has a substantial amount of cheesiness, and yet is a masterpiece of the Revenge type Western.

Carpenter's "The Thing" was hardly a B-movie or cheesy. Well acted, engaging plot, great special effects (for its time) , solid, solid pacing. Rotten Tomatoes gives it an 83, with an audience score of 92%.

It did very poorly on release, but critics and audiences have taken another look and it's now recognized as a classic and a milestone of sci-fi horror, and culturally iconic. Possibly my all-time favorite film.

Remember: watch Clark. Watch him close.

Not actually B movies considering they are generally well regarded in sci-fi film circles but The Thing From Another World, The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms, It Came From Beneath The Sea and Them are a great way to get through a winter evening.
