These are movies that I didn't mind. Now, by no means do I consider them to be masterpieces, but I simply find them fun to watch.

Director: Brian Levant | Stars: Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sinbad, Phil Hartman, Rita Wilson

This movie is all guilty pleasure. The whole thing is all about mindless comedy, implausable plot points, bad acting, horrible one liners, and a good message about parenting. AND I LOVE IT!!! This film is so fun to watch, you can't help but laugh with it. To me, it is an essential comedy film for Christmas. But I will say the ending was stupid.

I think that this film was smart, funny, ferocious, and original. Not to mention that the killer (not telling who!) actually had a really good motive and had the guts to beat Sidney up.

It was fresh, funny, smart, enjoyable, and I love the booby traps! This film wasn't NEAR as bad as Home Alone 4, and Alex D. Linz is a pretty fun wiz kid, but he isn't near as charming as Maculay. But at the time this was filmed, Macaulay would have been 16! Would you really want to see that?

Okay, don't judge me here, but I say that this film, while it is bad, isn't that bad, and is more of so-bad-its-good, and I consider it better than Superman III. I mean, did anybody turn into a robot in this one? In this one, you can laugh and be suspensed, Nuclear Man is a pretty nasty villain, but Superman triumphs.

Director: Sam Raimi | Stars: Tobey Maguire, Kirsten Dunst, Topher Grace, Thomas Haden Church

Votes: 421,103 | Gross: $336.53M

This film was pretty silly, and the worst of the series by far. But it was still pretty fun to watch, and the symbiote is pretty cool. Cons: Peter's crappy apartment. He couldn't at least make it look a bit nicer? Emo Peter Mary Jane (as always, she is whiny) The subplot of how Ben died (Ben is why Peter became Spiderman, we want him to be sad and angry, not knowing that it wasn't his fault.) How venom pulls his face down when he talks Venom. (It should have been the astronaut guy from Spiderman 2, who got dumped by Mary Jane for Peter at the altar, who went into space, found the symbiote, and went back for revenge on Peter.)
