I was tempted to up-rank high-brow movies to suggest that my movie palate is more refined. Instead, I'm admitting my guilty pleasures.
I know that "everybody" likes Star Wars. With thousands of movies to choose from, why should I list it as my #1 favorite instead of standing out from the crowd? BECAUSE I LOVE IT.
Creature From the Black Lagoon was a cheaply made flick that doesn't compare in any category with the production value of The Godfather. BUT I LOVE IT.
I've tasted caviar and I don't pretend to like it. Likewise, I watched Titanic when it came out. I didn't like it then and I don't like it now - Best Picture Award or not.
So, enjoy my list. If you don't recognize some of these movies, check them out and just let them be what they are.
