The Best Of The Worst

After watching the Oscars the other night, I started thinking about movies. No, not the great, award-winning movies, I started thinking about the B-rated craptastic movies. The ones that got no recognition, but they served a purpose nonetheless. They drew the line between bad and good movies, and for that, all the good movies should be thankful.

So I'm sitting there watching the pomp and circumstance, and just then I see my man, Mickey Rourke. I instantly remembered the BEST B-rated movie of all time. Hands down, the award goes to Harley Davidson And The Marlboro Man.

What makes the movie so great? Only a million things, but I don't have all day. So I'll condense it for you, and I'll expect some sort of royalty kick-back when you rent this movie tonight.

The Beginning: In my mind, you CANNOT go wrong if there are boobs and a kick-ass motorcycle featured in the first three minutes. This movie starts out with Mickey, aka Harley, leaving the room of a beautiful, half-naked woman and hopping on his ass-kicking monster of a motorcycle. Great start!!

The Cast: Surprisingly star-studded. Mickey Rourke, Don Johnson, Vanessa Williams, one of the Baldwins (doesn't matter which one, they're all the same), Tia Carrerra, and Big John Studd. Remember that dude?

The Concept: Plot aside, the concept of Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man is these two guys that live day-to-day. These guys go where they want to go and do what they want to do. Who doesn't admire that just a little bit? I won't speak for everybody, but sometimes I wish I could just take off for one measly day, and forget about being married and having kids, and a mortgage, and a car payment, and taxes, and groceries, and dr visits, and all the other bullshit that comes with being an American family. The lifestyle that this movie preaches is something we can barely imagine, let alone experience.

So there you have it readers, the BEST of the worst. Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man is my pick for cream of the crappy crop. How about you? What is your favorite crappy movie?

Well done Cameron.

I'm not sure that I'll be speeding to the video store to rent this man-flick, but it's always good to get a clue on the inner musings of men's minds!

Normally I'm into westerns and shoot 'em up films, but there's something about Troop Beverly Hills with Shelly Long that will make me drop everything and sit down.

Blogging Mama Andrea said...

Point Break and Troop Beverly Hills, both good choices.

Romancing the Stone gets me every time. Or Can't Buy Me Love with Patrick Dempsey before he was McWhatever they call him.

I will sit down and watch "Clueless" every single time it is on TV. I also like the classics like "Saving Private Benjamin" and "Howard the Duck" too.
