It's raining. The sky is dismal with grey and the forecast shows no end in sight. No one's doing anything today. Even the computer doesn't seem interesting. Just you and the television.

What a great day for a guilty pleasure: a B-Movie!

I love B-movies. Often times dated, campy, poorly filmed… but there's something about them you just can't turn away when it comes on as the Saturday afternoon/evening movie.
For me, hand's down, it's either:

'The Warriors' or ‘Big Trouble in Little China’


What's your favorite B-movie?
 
 
“You tell yourself to just
enjoy the process,” he added. “That whether you succeed or fail, win or
lose, it will be fine. You pretend to be Zen. You adopt detachment, and
ironic humor, while secretly praying for a miracle.”

'Invitation to Hell'.

One of Wes Craven's lesser known ones. It has a guy in a space suit shooting lasers at the devil, who's disguised as a health spa. It's as terrible as it sounds.
Hey buddy, you should be a Russian Cosmonaut, and here's why.

This is a tough one. Possibly Warlords Of Atlantis - the most ambitious of Doug McClure's ‘lost continent/undersea world with rubber dinosaurs’ arc.

Captain Apache just pips it though - bizarre psychedelic western. Lee Van Cleef not only stars, he also sings the theme!

Pure genius.
Er……..boo!

Easy. Remo Williams: The Adventure Begins, which in my humble opinion is not only the single-greatest movie ever made, but it is also a perfect example of a rainy day B-movie.

It's about a cop whose death is faked by a secret organization called CURE to act as their “killer arm”. He's trained by a quirky Korean named Chuin, the Master of Sinanju. Its funny, has some great acting, and is a perfectly “'80's” action flick.

Honestly, it's a movie you're either going to love or hate, and I loved it enough to become addicted to the book series it was based on. It even led me to different pulp fiction book series.

Here's the trailer:
