I don't believe in guilty pleasures in entertainment.
When I hear someone say "This movie is fun! It's stupid but its a guilty pleasure!" all it means to me is the person liked something they felt they shouldn't and feel guilty about admitting it. It's like they are apologizing for liking something. They don't want to own up to thinking something is good that they expect other people not to like. Why the guilt? I say if you like something, have the balls to say it without the copout of calling it a guilty pleasure. Say it loud!
There's a reason I own the DVDs of "Krull," "Dune," "Transformers the Movie," "The Black Hole," and many other movies even hardcore geeks will have trouble admitting they like. I like them, it's that simple. They do their job of putting a smile on my face for whatever reason (and I'll probably go into some of those reasons if I ever get a chance to write here with any consistency). I don't feel a need to defend my particular preferences to anyone (unless they ask of course, in which case I'll give 'em an earful). My tastes are my own, no matter how much social isolation and personal pain they've caused ('snif'). Dammit I need my pain! (more Star Trek references to come).
Anyway that's what this blog'll be about. Just me talking about what I like (and don't) be it good, bad, or ugly to other people. No guilty pleasures here.
