I'm a big film buff but that doesn't mean I spend my days watching Kubrick or Lumet films exclusively. (Actually, I have a lot I could say about Kubrick and Lumet, particularly regarding my misgivings about the former, but I'll spare you.) I love a good bad movie like everyone else.

For instance, if I actually did take a count of the number of times I've sat through some of the Friday the 13th movies, I'd probably frighten all of ya'll. But I will also defend them: I would much rather sit through Friday the 13th Part V: A New Beginning over Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare (or even The Dream Child). And don't get me started on my thoughts about the ups and downs of the Halloween franchise. The sheer mess that is Halloween Resurrection cannot be denied.

People had plenty to share after Redditor alexsangthat asked the online community,

"What is your 'I don't care if it's awful, I still love it' movie?"

"...has a scene..."

"Wild Wild West has a scene where Will Smith is attacked by a henchman with knives for hands. Just as he is about to kick this henchman to his inevitable death (after hanging him, no less), Will Smith says, "That's it, no more Mr. Knife Guy."

The defense rests, your honor."

You are braver than I. Even as a kid, I couldn't tolerate it.

Also why Kenneth Branaugh?! WHY?

"It's a full-on..."

"Street Fighter is probably my benchmark for "so bad, it's good." It's a full-on charcuterie board of cheesiness and ham."

This entire movie is a hoot and a half. It's messy, it's ridiculous, and the peak of early '90s cheese.

"...is my favorite movie..."

"National Treasure is my favorite movie and it seems to be a polarizing one amongst critics and consumers alike

Unique plot, drama, romance, action, mystery, some comedic moments too! What's not to like?"

SquirtleSquadSgt

"If you were to play..."

"Battle Los Angeles.

If you were to play a drinking game of "Spot the Tired Old Cliched Movie Tropes" while watching it, you'd be hammered drunk within ten minutes and dead of alcohol poisoning by the time the movie was halfway through...but I love it!"

LasRua

"I try to watch it..."

"Definitely Jingle All the Way. I try to watch it every December."

LightningEdge756

Another brave soul. I can't stand it. Was I just a humorless child? Probably.

"I'll always love..."

"Tank Girl. I'm a giant Tank Girl fan. To the point I own all the comics and have a full Tank Girl sleeve. I'll always love this movie. It's what got me interested in the first place."

manicmoth95

"I don't care..."

"Happy Gilmore. I don't care that it's a dumb Adam Sandler comedy. It combines my two passions: hockey and golf. And it's funny to me."

FlyAirLari

Early Adam Sandler isn't bad, though not my cup of tea. He's just repulsively juvenile to me.

"I loved seeing..."

​"I loved seeing Avatar in 3D in theatres. Couldn't tell you the first thing about its story anymore, it's probably just a tech demo, but it was a captivating tech demo that I haven't seen again since."

​shaokim

How could a movie that received 10,000,000 Academy Award nominations be so forgettable? And who even wants all those sequels that are coming our way?

"He stole the movie..."

"Masters of the Universe. Dolph Lundgren's He-Man acting is pretty terrible, but Frank Langella as Skeletor was amazing. He stole the movie and to this day he says it was one of his favorite characters he's portrayed."

scottcoopmaximus

"Showed my friends..."

"Little Nicky.

Loved it as a kid. Showed my friends once and they said it was awful. Still love it lol. Apart from this movie I can't really stand Adam Sandler's acting much."

If you love a film, you should wear that love for it on your sleeve. "Guilty pleasure"? What's that? Some movies, though their quality might be questionable, offer us the comfort we're looking for when we need it most.

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

People Break Down Which Things Always Taste Good Whether They're Served Hot Or Cold

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
