Ok, After seeing Grindhouse, it brought back a lot of memories of old "B" movies. I guess the B movie has been turned into the straight to video release. Now you don't expect much out of a "B" movie made with almost no budget, and no actors of any acclaim, but thinking back there were some major studio movie releases that I thought were great then, but now I find below some grindhouse flicks.

Here are 3 big studio flicks:
Commando - Arnold Schwarzenegger
Cobra - Sylvester Stallone
Delta Force - Chuck Norris


As a teenager, I loved these movies, as an adult I wonder what the hell I was thinking.

Have any?

Dumb and Dummer but I don't think that was a B movie. They still make tons of cash off of it.
OK, I must be too adolescent, I still laugh at this movie.


I was talking about not "B" movies that are as bad as "B" movies.

LOL, Berry Gordy's The Last Dragon, with the typical 80's music. Exactly!!!:proud:

haha, I've been a B movie fan for years, particularly with horror movies.
Peter Jackson's:
Bad Taste
Dead Alive

Lucio Fulci's:
Zombies 2

My friend also has a movie from the early 90s...so bad it's funny, called Sorority House Massacre 2

Also, anyone ever see any movies with Frank Stallone? (Sly's brother, who had a short-lived B movie career). Very bad acting/funny type of stuff.

Also, Army of Darkness is borderline B movie. The predecessors (Evil Dead 1 & 2) definately are, but AOD was in the theatres, had a larger budget and did fairly well I thought.

Edit: Burks -- Yes, I think the original Sniper with Tom Berenger and that snobby villian from Titanic was in the theaters. I actually watched that about 2-3 years ago and really enjoyed it. I haven't seen the sequels, but I heard they weren't as good. No, I don't think any of those
made it to theatres.

Not much. I haven't lived that much to experience it though :p. Maybe the pokemon movies? LOL. But I haven't seen it now so I can't judge a movie through the stereotype of pokemon being "silly."

Hm.... I dunno. How about Kung Fu Hustle? I saw it too many times (maybe like 50 times) and now its boring. But after two months or so I watch it again and its brilliant again. LOL. Otherwise I've enjoyed or hated all my movies and still do.

POWER RANGERS IS AWESOME! HOW DARE YOU! :p.

But I've seen movies that I thought were horrible when I was youngER but now realize it was a brilliant movie recently. Such as Totoro or Princess Mononoke.

Also all the classic movies you see in school.
