    Dunno, despite not being perfect, I still think that Crazies remake is too good to be filed under guilty pleasure.

    Still, if we are gonna talk about horror films that have flaws, but are well worth watching, I will then say that this also belongs here.

    Dread (2009)



    Based on a Clive Barker short story. Generally really effective and when it gets going it hits you pretty hard. :O

    I unironically and ununapologetically enjoy 1986's "Howard the Duck."











    [edit] I corrected second word from "ironically" to unironically." The apparent typo was due to my original post using a smartphone, which may have led to an unintended meaning. I genuinely enjoy that movie.

    Dune (1984)



    A lot of people think that this movie is straight up bad, but I like it quite a bit, warts and all.

    Despite or maybe because of a nearly naked Sting, lol.



    Don't stand so close to me indeed. Haha.



    A flawed, but intriguing movie. And if you disagree with me, well, you're wrong!!

    Well if it wasn't for Dune, we would've had a David Lynch directed Return of the Jedi!

    I remember, when I saw it in the theater they gave us a card, filled with Dune-to-English translations guide. How in the hell we were supposed to see them in the dark...

    I enjoyed that even before I read the book. There was nothing else like it. It made no bones about the fact that those characters lived in a world that the audience didn't, and hardly bothered trying to explain it. They knew what was going on, and you either were able to make the necessary inferences or you weren't.

    And then I read the book and it's still not as bad as everyone says.

    This has been making the rounds on HBO's rotation lately. Watched it last night. Still love it for the underdog sentimentality!
