welcome to another Random Thursday with Lin, Em and me. Thanks so much for reading, commenting and linking up. You guys all rock!
I hope you are having a fantastic week.
Well, I have thought about this a lot. I even asked David for his opinion and he said that he can't think of anything I like that I am ashamed of. And I guess he is right. I do not hate to admit that I love anything I love because I really could not care less what other people think of my taste. I like what I like and if other people think this is stupid, then it is their problem and not mine. I never had a problem to share my opinion...even if people disapproved or thought that I am not cool because I don't share their opinion. People will always be judgmental and if they don't approve of anything I like then that's okay for me.
The Malibu Bikini Shop - Two brothers who have just graduated from college inherit a bikini store from their aunt. Sounds like a fantastic movie to me. I am pretty sure I am the only person who ever watched this movie and I still have it on VHS somewhere. If they would show it on TV ever again, I would totally spend 90 minutes enjoying some early childhood memories.
I did enjoy watching the Twilight movies. Well except of the second last, that one was boring like hell. I do not love these movies but they are definitely entertaining. I even enjoyed reading the books...even when the writing was horrible and the main female character a hot mess which you can only hate or feel sorry for. Or both. But: I felt entertained. I don't watch these movies all the time, I have watched them once but I did enjoy sitting on the couch, eating lots of chips and watching a vampire and a werewolf trying to save an annoying girl. You don't have to think, you can just sit down and relax. And sometimes that is what you need. I am aware of the fact that those books are not great literature. That the movies are not award-worthy. I don't care. In my opinion I do have a good taste in movies, shows and books. And I don't care if there are some pieces among those which are not worth to be proud of.
One of my favorite movies ever is The Sword in the Stone. Do I hate to admit that I love children's movies. Of course I don't. This movie is fantastic, funny, exciting and it has an important message. What is not to love about it. Some people might look down on you because you love to watch movies which are made for children. Who cares. People who are afraid to be childish totally miss out.
Okay, and here are some other movies that others might find disturbing or weird or embarrassing or boring or stupid - which I totally like.
Can't buy me love - Patrick Dempsey before he was McDreamy as a nerd fighting for the love of a girl. And mowing the lawn. I love it. Also Seth Green is in that movie. It's one of my childhood favorites.
Camp Cucamonga - Jennifer Aniston is in it. And Steve Urkel. Also a favorite movie from my childhood. It is about romance and pranks. That pretty much sums it up.
Dodgeball - A group of misfits enter a Las Vegas dodgeball tournament in order to save their cherished local gym from the onslaught of a corporate health fitness chain. Makes me laugh every single time I watch it. They make jokes about Germans plus Chuck Norris is in it.
Bud Spencer and Terrence Hill movies - I am not sure if this is an only European thing or not. Maybe you can help me out. Who else knows them? They are basically about punching people. A lot.
Just Bud Spencer movies -for example "Der Große mit seinem außerirdischen Kleinen" - A young humanoid alien who gets stranded on earth hooks up with a grizzled old sheriff in a western town and tries to help him solve a tough case, but the sheriff doesn't want any help from a "kid." - does that sound like something you might be embarrassed about?
Baseketball - Two childhood friends are pro athletes of a national sport called BASEketball, a hybrid of baseball and basketball, and must deal with a greedy businessman scheming against their team. Stupid story but very entertaining.
Bubba Ho-Tep - Elvis and JFK, both alive and in nursing homes, fight for the souls of their fellow residents as they battle an ancient Egyptian Mummy. How can you not love this.
Die Lümmel von der ersten Bank - and all other Hansi Kraus movies. Definitely a German thing. Those are movies from the 60's, they take place in a school and are all about making fun of teachers and playing pranks.
Roy Black movies and shows - especially "Ein Schloß am Wörthersee", a German TV series about a hotel at a lake. As exciting as it sounds but it reminds me of my childhood (it is from the 90s). I even visited that hotel once.
Wayne's World - You just have to love Wayne and Garth. Especially Garth.
Bio-Dome - again, not sure if I am the only one who watched this movie. This is a typical Sunday afternoon movie for me. "Moronic best friends get themselves locked inside the Bio-Dome, a science experiment, along with a group of environmental scientists for one year." As you can see, I love movies with great plots.
What movie do you love but are ashamed to admit it to the rest of the world?
