Ok, Folks, time to climb up to the long branches of the "trust-tree" and into the "nest of non-critical, positive regard." It's time for: GUILTY PLEASURES! (it sounds better if you imagine the folk guitar backround and the magnified reverb on the last part)

For all the couch-critics, and cinema-elitests, with their film-snobery and name-dropping:

WHAT IS/ARE YOUR GUILTY PLEASURES OF CINEMA?

I am referring to those films or movies that you would ABSOLUTELY DIE, if your "friends" knew that you had a soft-spot for or enjoyed watching. The kind of movies that would have you taunted and ridiculed until the collective throats of a thousand pretentious-asses were hoarse and sore... kidding, we're in the "Trust-Tree" :)

As I have no shame, or very little left, I shall s.... (But, just then a group of ninjas burst through the lab door, for no reason, and abducted Ursus and his Laptop, again for no reason, and left the Chemistry Building... again for no reason).

But, seriously folks, you should answer the question... and, don't worry about the bear.

Sincerely,
Hired-Ninja-Goon #2

Hmm, I think it's curious that you haven't mentioned any of your guilty pleasures.

In any event, this has been discussed before in underdog's Official Guilty Pleasure Thread, not to mention the fact that there are a number of lists by the following GCers.

PGalloway: my guilty pleasures

eifert: Guilty Pleasures

ALittlefield: Guilty pleasures

SKaplan: Ultimate Guilty Pleasures

Yeah, Ursus, can't come to the laptop right now he's kind of tied-up at the moment, but we shall be sure to pass the message on once the tranquilizer wears off.

Regards,
Hired Ninja Goon #7

Remember, "Hired Ninja Goons" for your next abduction, kidnapping or birthday party.

And if you had an ANIME guilty pleasure, you could assuage the feelings in the Temple of the MegaDeus. Well, at least it WAS a holy and peaceful place of contrition and absolution until some wicked yahoos started loitering there, messing up the ambience.

Gentlemen. Gentlemen. Please... doesn't this sound like an occasion where a group of Hired Ninja Goons would help to solve thi... Number Four, would you keep him quiet. He's waking up! Well, what do you think you should do Number Four... shoot him with another tranquilizer dart!!! See... See, what you made me do... I typed out all the crap I've been... No. No, we will... we will talk about this later back at the Lair Number Four! God, I swear, some peoples kids...

[Note to self: Kick Number Twenty-Three in the junk for hiring Number Four while I was at vacation-ninja school with my kids.]

Gentlemen. Where were we? Ahh, Yes, thank you Number Six.
There is no situation that can not be mediated with Hired Ninja Goons and non-lethal, semi-lethal, or Chuck Norris Force. In fact, Hired Ninja Goons have worked as extras in all of Chuck Norris' movies, not to blow our own horn.

Now that phase One is complete in our master plan, we need to be going... too much goonery and not enough time to do it. Am I right?

Oh, the boys and I really like watching "Hudson Hawk" or on ladies Ninja nights at the Lair, "Legally Blond" or "Just like Heaven." Number Eleven really digs Reese Witherspoon, and I swear, Number Eight does the best Napoleon impersonations.

Sincerely,
Number One

Hey Hammy,
Just siiting here in an abondoned wharehouse tied to a metal chair bolted to the floor. The Goons stepped out for frozen yogurt and some fru-fru coffee drinks, so I am left here (typing with my tongue, FYI). I must say, in their defense, they do use the nicest and least abrassive nylon/poly ropes to bind the hands and feet... nice guys really, once you look beyond the "hired-goon-thing" and the "lets turn Ursus' ass into a dartboard with Tranq. darts" thing.

Anyway, I was bored, and looking at the Temple of MegaDeus, thought I could use some absolution for renting Kite (Directors Cut)... not for the pointless and gratuitous sex, but because it sucked, and I should have known better...

Yeah, otherwise, not much going on here. Just hangin' out (the shift key is alot harder to use with your tongue, I have found), kind of bored... I know this is bad, but I feel a little like Stephen Hawking. Bad, I know.

So, keep up the good work with the impressive use of vocab. in your posts, and dishing out absolution. We all can use forgiveness...

Ursus-

That's impressive. I can type with my nose. One of the members here claims to be able to type with cajones (perhaps he was a tanuki-- as woozies' cajones are internal I was more then a little jealous and then livid).

I recieved a copy of this today which I assume was misdelivered as I have no interests in bear movies and was awaiting The Nasty Witch of Oz which despite the title is annoyingly tame.
