Guilty Pleasure Movies: The Contest!

“The movie is being revived around the country for midnight cult showings. Midnight is not late enough.”

~Roger Ebert

"Hey, check out all these cheesy movies!"

About a week ago I posted out a call for everybody’s favorite Guilty Pleasure movies. We have a great field of eight movies plus one extra on which to vote.

Here’s how this works:

1. Voting will take place between now and next Sunday, April 22. One vote per person.

2. You can vote for your own movie if you wish.

3. Leave a comment to let me know you voted. You must leave a comment to be eligible to win a prize. Those who nominated movies are automatically eligible and get TWO entries in the drawing. 🙂

4. I will conduct a random drawing to select the winner. The winner will get a full retro review of his/her movie in a future edition of P&Q, plus his/her choice of either an autographed Star Trek Reg Barclay figure or autographed photo of Dwight Schultz, which I will obtain next month at the Detroit Motor City Comic Con.

5. A tie will result in a Boomerang Fish wrestling match to determine a winner. (No, seriously.)

6. Any questions or concerns should be directed to me at

And without further ado, here are our nominees in alphabetical order:

Battle Beyond the Stars, nominated by Christine Noble:

“Battle Beyond the Stars starring Richard Thomas, John Saxon, Robert Vaughn aaaaand George Peppard!”

Charlie’s Angels, nominated by Ellie Ann:

“Girls in basically no clothes kicking ass with corny one-liners . . . I just can’t help myself.”

Conan the Barbarian, nominated by Jamie:

“When I watch it, my inner film critic joins in chorus with the lamentations of the women. So bad it’s almost good.”

Dr. Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog, nominated by ThoughtsAppear:

“There’s singing, there’s blogging, there’s love. And there’s Neil Patrick Harris. What’s not to like?”

Pretty Woman, nominated by Tinspring:

“The story of Cinderella as prostitute. #cheesy with #syrup”

Repo: The Genetic Opera, nominated by Patrick Thunstrom:

“Rock opera, tons of gore, Paris Hilton embarrassing herself into multiple Razzies and Giles as a serial killer.”

Risky Business, nominated by Susie Lindau:

“It put Tom Cruise on the map as he slid into the living room with his whitey tighties and stocking feet, but it was his Ray-Ban Wayfarers that stole the show.”

Super Inframan, nominated by The Heretic:

“SUPER INFRAMAN!!! Cheesy tokusatsu…from China!”

Since I’m sure some of you were wondering what my and/or the site mascot’s favorite guilty pleasure movie of all time might be, this is it. I have to watch it if it’s on TV. I’m just compelled. (No, it’s not District 9, it’s…)

(Hey, any movie with a fighter pilot punching an alien in the face gets noticed around here.)

Be sure to vote! Thanks to all who nominated a movie…these are some great ones.

  1. While there’s some great picks, any chance to inflict Repo on a larger audience is something I have to do!

  2. Couldn’t vote – a lot of those movies aren’t really cheesy, and the ones that are give me no pleasure at all. (Yes, I saw battle beyond the stars ion the theater. No, I have no idea what I was thinking.)

  3. So many choices….

  4. I had to go with Dr. Horrible. Joss Whedon is a genius. (Also, because I haven’t seen most of the other movies…not sure what that says about me. ;))

  5. Sorry, had to go with Conan. Doubt I need to explain that one.

  6. Independence Day is a great movie! It will be a tight race!

  7. I was torn between Repo and Dr Horrible, though my personal weakness is The Princess Bride.

  8. I vote Conan 🙂

  9. […] forget to vote for your favorite Guilty Pleasure movie this week for a chance at some more […]

  10. […] a week of voting in the Guilty Pleasure Movie contest, we have a three-way tie! Instead of conducting an actual Boomerang Fish wrestling match as […]
