Phil’s Top 5… Guilty Pleasure Films
Each week Phil, from Phil’s Quick Capsule Review, takes a look at a different movie or TV related Top Five. This time out: My Favourite Guilty pleasure Films!
Close but no cigar: Anaconda, Grease 2, Tango & Cash, Masters Of The Universe
5 – Bad Boys
What ya gunna do? Bad Boys was a slice of 90’s action awesomeness with Will Smith making his big screen debut in an evolution of the Lethal Weapon idea of miss matched cops. It works because Bay was limited by budget.
4 – Showgirls
It’s terrible yet brilliant at the same time. The over acting, the terrible script, THAT pool s-x scene. Showgirls is a joy to watch.
3 – Con Air
An action film where there’s little action. But man what a film. A quotable script, an amazing cast and Nick Cage’s awesome hair. One of THE best guilty pleasure films of the 90’s
2 – Cannonball Run
Burt Reynolds, some awesome cars and two of the Rat Pack reunited on screen, Cannonball Run is brilliantly enjoyable. It’s terrible by most film making standards of course but it’s relentless fun wins you over.
1 – Top Gun
Come on was it going to be ANY other film. Top Gun is awesome. The planes, the sound track, the camp, the cheese – it’s the bets of the 80’s. But look past that and you have a well crafted, expertly direction action film of the like we’ve never seen before.
