What turns a movie into a guilty pleasure? I suppose it’s a film that you enjoy, though you know you shouldn’t because everyone else seems to hate it. There’s a lot of such films in my collection, some of them bought by me, others remnants of the “too odd to review” bins in the publications I’ve written for, from the Stereophile Guide to Home Theater
to the present.
Here are ten of them, and they’re by no means the only ones on my shelf. All of them are still available on Blu-ray, some of them so cheap they might be worth taking a flyer on. Some are also available in 3D, though I don’t address that here. As for some of the others, well, don’t bring out the tar and feathers if you hate them. Remember, they’re my guilty pleasures, not necessarily yours.
This is an awful film in many ways, and the most Michael Bayish film neither produced nor directed by Michael Bay….
