    Recently I have been going through some old VHS tapes I have and found a few things I forgot I recorded. Some of them were TV show episodes (mostly Star Trek stuff), others were big name movies. Yesterday, I found one called Robot Wars. The label was in my handwriting but I was drawing a blank on it. I watched it and it was a real cheesy sci-fi flick from 1993 (according to IMDB). Once I started watching it, it came back to me. This is no award winning flick, but it made for a good laugh. I guess that is why I kept a copy of it. The story was a post world war III earth with big battle robots now being used to give tourist trips, until on gets stolen. Poor acting, dumb attempts at comedy. So bad it was funny.

    Another goofy one I saw years ago and wish I had a copy of is: Attack if the Killer Tomatoes.

    Then there was: Mars Attacks

    Don't forget the cheesy martial arts movies with the exaggarated sound effects.

    Then there was Godzilla. How many times has Tokyo been destroyed in those things?

    Anybody have a favorite cheesy or grade B movie?

    Cinderella (the adult R rated one) Use to be on cable pay channels many years ago. Fairy godfather was gay and evil step sisters were lesbians. Nudity but no graphic sex. Laughed by ass off. Must have seen a dozen times

    I remember the Dr. Phibes movies from the 1970's starring Vincent Price. Haven't seen them on video.

    Not sure what genre of movie -- you're going for in this thread ?
    .......but..........
    >
    "Muscle Beach Party" ( I hope that's the name ? )
    Eric Von Zipper rules !!!!.............so stupid.......it kinda worked.
    >
    Mamie Van Doran movies --- only because you catch Eddie Cochran or Bill Haley early rock numbers
    ....and....oh yeh.......her Bullet Bra !
    >
    Bowery Boys ( or better yet, East Side Kids )...............in later movies - Huntz Hall
    doesn't even look at anyone when he delivers his lines -- he looks up or away ---
    it's like he's in his own universe ?.........really kinda disturbing actually ?
