      Agreed about Asia Argento being a bit of a guilty pleasure but what about her excellent performance in 'The Last Mistress', the brilliant French drama by Catherine Breillat? And lets not forget she's also a director with 'The Heart Is Deceitful Above All Things' being the highlight of that venture. And I do love Russ Meyer. The dialogue is hilariously bad (as is the acting from his buxom beauties) but I actually think he's a more than competent director - something people forget through the softcore porn and violence. The man has style. 'Faster, Pussycat...Kill! Kill!' is genuinely good!

      A friend of mine saw A View To A Kill and thought Bond was gay because he didn't realise Grace Jones was a woman.

      Arnie's Raw Deal is a good one for me. "You shouldn't drink...and bake". It ticks all the boxes!

      Disaster moovies are just plain c**k. But otherwise, a good list.

      Also, how about the original The Transformers: The Movie? It's got everything. Ridiculous plot - a giant metal planet eating metal planet. Epic fights scenes, complete with awesome dialougue - "one shall stand, one shall fall", "you who are without mercy now beg for it? I thought you were made of sterner stuff". Soundtrack of 80's power ballads - "you've got the touch... you've got the poweeeeeeer". The villian apparently dying then coming back (although that does happen quite early in the film). It ticks all the boxes. PLus it's not made by Michael Bay, which is an immediate bonus to any film.

      Nic Cage should have gotten the Academy Award for his hair in "Raising Arizona" - in addition to his once-in-a-lifetime performance (apparently).

      Why does everyone diss on George Lazenby? One of the Best bond films ever - a combo of Moore humor and Connery toughness with a touch more class than either. Telly Savalas and Diana Rigg! AND curling!

      the idea that you should feel guilty about something you enjoy, which is what hollywood cinema is there for just because it does'nt meet the standards of pretentious taste setters is utter bollocks. ps wild things kicks f*****g a*s
