    Top Gun.

    I know it's homoerotic. I can't help it. I was raised on it. :(

    I watched Beaches with my ex-gf a couple years back. I had heard it was the ultimate chick flick but my god, I think I spawned a pussy after watching it. Were there even any guys in the cast?

    I agree. When I saw that movie I couldn't understand why so many people suggested it to me.

    That's because CCSU is full of black people and small-town hicks. :p

    Definitely Independence Day. The movie where the aliens are actually the bad guys, and where Jeff Goldblum and his Macintosh PowerBook can magically uplink to an alien mothership's computers.

    I forgot to mention "Girlie" films that I like. Steel Magnolias, Somewhere In Time, The Notebook, Benny and Joon, Pretty In Pink, Fried Green Tomatoes, Legends Of The Fall, Seven Years In Tibet,......now it sounds like a Brad Pitt fetish but, have you noticed that he seems to make a lot of "epic in scale" type movies? Even some of the action packed ones.

    That film is fucking bad ass. You usually don't see cannibalism and lesbianism in the same movie. :mrgreen:

    I like Seven Years in Tibet. Never considered it a girl movie, though. Now I'm skeered. :eek:

    The Mist, either no one saw it or thought it was just another crap Stephen King movie. I thought it was amazing, and still get a rush at the end.

    I still get a horrible gut wrenching feeling every time I think of the ending of that movie. Such a perfect ending.

    Laugh because they are such bad movies or because they aren't as unloved as I think? :confused:

    Such bad movies. IMO of course, I am sure many people love them. If I had to pick the worst 10 movies I have ever seen 3 of those would be on it.
