Guilty Pleasure Love looks at movies (just plain bad ones or more debatable ones) in a different light.


Does a “guilty pleasure” actually exist? Should you really feel guilty over something you like and enjoy? Some say no. Some say yes. I say fuck it — enjoy what you want.

For the most part, I don’t ever really feel guilty about liking some (arguably) questionable movies. Would I go outside and shout from the rooftops about these movies? Probably not.

But I can do something similar, a bit more discreetly, here. These are movies I want to either defend or try to get other people on board with. But, honestly, half the time, I probably won’t even know why I’m defending them.

This’ll be fun…
