We all have favorite movies that we have no shame in telling people about. Blah blah, Citizen Kane, you say, blah blah The Godfather. And other people will hopefully be impressed by how good your taste is. But there’s that other list, too–the list of movies that you love even though you know, down in your heart, that they truly suck. The list of movies you don’t mention when people ask you what your favorite movies are, because it would take far too long to justify them and explain yourself. This, my friends, is my list of sucky movies that I love even though (or possibly because) they are horrible.

So, I flipped on the TV a minute ago and Grease 2 was on. I don’t have the undying affection for this movie that certain other people do, but I do love Cool Rider. And that was what was on. What that movie REALLY did for me, though, was make me think about Empire Records (see, Sandy’s cousin Michael Carrington? YEAH THAT’S REX MANNING).
I love Empire Records and more specifically, I love Lucas. No, really. When I was younger, I loved AJ. He was cute and earnest. I like earnest. Lucas is earnest, too, he’s just also completely and totally insane, so he wins!
This clip demonstrates his awesomeness. Enjoy.
(Please don’t psychoanalyze me).
I recently experienced Grease 2 for the very first time. Perhaps my crush on Michelle Pfeiffer is influencing my opinion, but I kind of loved it. It’s terrible, of course, but it’s terrible in that High School Musical kind of way. It’s so bad, it’s hilarious. (Okay, sometimes it’s just plain bad.) Now, while “Cool Rider” is obviously the masterpiece of this movie, I decided to go with a different scene to showcase. I don’t even want to set this up for you. It speaks for itself.
