    I enjoy B-Movies, the graphics, effects and dialogue are usually lackluster but to me they have a certain appeal that I like.
    I especially enjoy the Vincent Price Horror movies.

    There have been attempts to remake some and they are never as good, even with the new CGI advances, as the original.

    A couple examples like The House on Haunted Hill, 13 Ghosts, Clash of the Titans, and The 7 Adventures of Sinbad.

    So if anyone has a favorite B-Movie they like let everyone know.

    A couple I recommend and I provided the IMDB link:
    Horror
    The Abominable Dr. Phibes
    Kung Fu
    Five Element Ninjas
    A really good Western Comedy
    The Terror of Tiny Town

    Usually, lackluster is one word, @$$hole.

    I wasn't sure if they were lackluster or lacked luster. Thanks Professor.:D

    I love "B" Movies! Especially when they have "used to be" A listers in them. Those are the best.

    But to clearify, we have to make sure we define "B" movie. I consider a "B" movie one that came out in the off season ( not summer or not the Christmas second season ) and stayed a short time at the theaters OR was a straight to video release back in the day.

    Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man. Awesomeness.

    Constantine. So bad it was great. I thought that lost money, but it turns out it went platinum outside the US. Who knew? :eek:

    Vampire$. With James Woods. Epicness.

    Fear of a Black Hat. That movie is about as funny as a low production budget has ever been.

    The Hunted. With Christopher Lambert. Not the one with Tommy Lee Jones, this was the OTHER one. One of the best sword fight scenes EVA.

    Paparazzi. I forget who was in it, but it's a pretty good story about an action "star" who goes about killing photogs that caused his family some harm.

    The Brotherhood of the Wolf. This was a foreign film that finally made it's way over here. Bad dubbing, worse special effects, but some AWESOME fight scenes. This movie is definitely in my Deserted Island Collection because I can watch it over and over again without fail.

    Excellent Thread Idea!! Now I have to go through my old movie box and throw in a couple of movies to annoy the Mrs with tonight. :p

    Hells Yeah, I loved Vampires. James Woods is rarely bad in anything.

    Better than the one in Rob Roy.

    Absolutely. Check out his dirtbagness in "Casino." James Woods absolutely rocks.

    You know, I need to give Rob Roy another chance, because I was in a "I REALLY hate anything with Liam Neeson" phase when I saw it the first time.

    Having said that, I have NEVER seen such a brutal killing of people, and ninjas, at the hands of one guy with a sword as takes place on the bullet train in The Hunted.

    Then they have an epic sword making montage. That movie effing rocks Shi, you have to check it out.

    Tim Roth is rarely bad in anything also. Check Out Four Rooms. He is great.

    Didn't dig Four Rooms. I enjoyed the hell out of Quinton's Room, but the three other rooms were directed by other people and of those, only Double R's was passible as decent movie fair.

    I agree, Tim Roth is an amazing actor and I genuinely watch movies with him in it because of that. Which is how I got talked into seeing Rob Roy when I was dead set against it do to the Liam issue.

    Neeson has since turned that around with Taken, his role as Hannibal in The A Team and another preview I saw that escapes me at the moment.

    I will watch Rob Roy again though, on the Shihan Recommendation.

    I read the OP and that is it but hands down, without a doubt the best B movie EVER is Army of Darkness. A squal I know...but still.
