This list is off to a bad start. These are not films that you and nobody else like people.
I (and many others) enjoy the following movies;
Better Off Dead, Beautiful Girls, Event Horizon, Idiocracy, Invaders From Mars, Lake Placid, Point Break, Roadhouse, Roxanne, Salem's Lot, Silver Bullet, Summer School, The Fifth Element, The Last Boy Scout, The Pick Up Artist, and Xanadu.
I also like the Kevin Costner flicks Waterworld and The Postman, Tom Hanks flicks Volunteers and Joe Versus The Volcano, and Wesley Snipes flicks King Of New York, White Men Can't Jump, and Demoltion Man.
Speaking of buddy cop movies, that's probably the last time you'll ever see the pairing of Billy Crystal & Gregory Hines [Running Scared], Keanu Reeves & Gary Busey (and Patrick Swayze in anything)
[Point Break], Bruce Willis & Damon Wayans [The Last Boy Scout], or Sylvester Stallone & Kurt Russell [Tango & Cash].

My family's favorite junk movie. We can walk in at any time.
"Junk Movie"!?! BTLC is a cult classic! I purchased the out-of-print 2-disc special edition off of ebay, and even bought the Jack Burton 'Chinamen design' T-Shirt off of Wingkong.net
. It's coming to Region 1 Blu-Ray August 4th! Many fans (including myself) would've loved to have seen a sequel, but unfortunately BTLC didn't do very well at the box office.

For the most part the theme seems to be films that involve Stallone that I loved as a kid but wasn't sophisticated enough at the time to realize they are garbage - and choose to say I still like them because I don't want to turn my back on my youth.
Rocky IV (James Brown cameo...and training montage in Russia, are you kidding me??? AND, he practically ends the cold war with his moving post victory speech
Rocky IV is golden in my book. It's my favorite post-original Rocky movie. As a 10-11 year old kid when I saw the movie in theaters, it inspired me to workout and jog around the block and such. The soundtrack is also great in it's own right. I haven't stopped liking "Training Montage" by Vince DiCola since I first got the cassette in 1985, and it seems I wasn't the only one since covers of the song have now been showing up from artists like the Northern Kings and guitarist Rick Graham.

Galaxy Quest is hilarious to anyone who bothers to see it, though many skip based on Tim Allen in the lead, missing Alan Rickman, Sam Rockwell, and Tony Shaloub in the best comedy roles they'll ever have.
I like Jackie Brown the best of all Tarantino movies.
I'm going to have to agree with Ship here.
Ghostbusters 2 isn't that bad. The Ghostbusters 3 script is in the works according to Harold Ramis who was just on Jimmy Fallon tonight.
I never bothered to watch Galaxy Quest until it was on cable, and it really is a solid and entertaining movie! I especially like the end when they make a crash landing into the convention.
I think Tarantino is overrated, never cared for Pulp Fiction. But Jackie Brown is another story, and a much better movie.

Yeah, you're alone on that one. That movie really was terrible

you were the only person who liked this barrel-scraping dreck-fest! I seem to be one of the only people on the planet (besides the critics) who thought this movie sucked -- everyone I know seems to think it's some sort of comedic masterpiece. Ick.
I am with you Wags. I never liked that movie! I cringed when everyone spoke so admirably of it on VH1's 'I Love The 80's' like it's part of our cultural fabric.
