What are your true guilty pleaure DVDs in your collection?

Porn aside. I'm talking about DVDs that you own & love, but may even be too embarassed to display with the rest of your collection. Or at the very least, the DVDs that you have to constantly explain to people when they look through your collection. You know the lines "ohhh uhhhh. . . I just borrowed those from my buddy, they aren't even mine."And please, all you wannabe film-snobs, don't give me answers, like Titanic, a Michael Bay film, or whatever popular movie that people actually do enjoy but are so far beneath your taste-level.

So come on, fess up people.

I do have a large number of Delta/Laserlight titles. The best being the Alfred Hitchcock collection with a seemingly drunk Tony Curtis intorduces each film.

Re: What are your true guilty pleaure DVDs in your collection?

Not embarrassed to display any of my collection, but I know whatcha mean. I think these might fit the bill:

Showgirls VIP collection
Mean Girls
Airplane II
Grease 2
The Anna Nicole Show
Meet the Osbornes
Viva, Las Vegas & Tickle Me - my best friend hates Elvis so I have to hide these from him.

Plus I have lots of grindhouse, exploitation movies that some might say are guilty pleasures.

I actually like and own the two Scooby-Doo movies with Sarah Michelle Gellar and that tool she is married to. I guess I will be adding Twilight soon.

Re: What are your true guilty pleaure DVDs in your collection?

Why would the Harry Potter movies be considered guilty pleasures? Worldwide, the franchise has grossed over $4 billion.

Now, your choice of Gigli.....

ROBOT MONSTER - the one starring George Nader, filmed on a budget that wouldn't fill a gas tank today, where the alien monster was a guy in a gorilla suit and diving helmet who blew bubbles at people.

But hey, it's an Image DVD.

There is no shame in a man's love for Milla.

Damn, what lame choices by everyone so far. I mean, Shaun of the Dead & Lost Boys . . . WTF? Don't be that guy.

And this is "DVDs", it's why I posted it here, it's not just limited to movies. TV shows also. I know there is at least one grown man here who owns The Complete Gilmore Girls. Reveal yourself !

About the only thing I can think of is the fact that the majority of the TV on DVD I have are "kid's" cartoons, especially Marvel stuff.

I have no shame in admitting I own all seven seasons of Gilmore Girls...that show is a classic! I don't have the doll-case version though, as I bought each season as it was released....
I'm not ashamed in owning some of the shows I loved as a kid, such as The Dukes Of Hazzard, Knight Rider, or He-Man, though some people may call those guilty pleasures (and honestly they really don't hold up as "quality" programming, it's completely for the pure nostalgia factor....)

I agree with this 100%....
Not trying to call you out but what's up with your list NoirFan?
Do horror movies embarrass you or something? I'm confused....

Pootie Tang (2001)
Mannequin (87) / Mannequin 2: On the Move ( Mannequin: On the Move ) (91)
Adventures of Rocky and Bullwinkle (2000)

Then again most of these are on my trade lists on other sites....
So that doesn't say much for these films, does it?
Most of were blind buys or I liked it when I was younger for some reason....
I do enjoy some stuff from the above list but I don't love any of the movies....

Really?
I loved all three & I wouldn't consider any of them guilty pleasures....
They all have a decent following in the horror community....

This movie is actually half-brilliant, half-awful, but it's the only one I have to explain to people ...

Mean Girls was a terrific movie and Serendipity has Kate Beckinsale in it. There's no need in being ashamed of owning either.

While I don't own any of the Gilmore Girls set, I'm currently up to the 3rd season on ABCFamily, and there is absolutely nothing shameful about liking that show. It has great writing, great relationships and Lauren Graham.

I do own all 5 seasons of One Tree Hill and the first season of Gossip Girl. But again, I feel no shame. Actually, they're currently sitting next to my Guinea Pig box set.
