Random Thursday: Movies I hate to admit I loved

You know this is going to be a good one! There are a few movies that I suppose I should be embarrassed to admit I enjoy.

Around the World in 80 Days (2004)

I know this is kind of a lame Disney kiddie flick, but I love Steve Coogan. And it makes me laugh, so that’s worth something, right?


The Lara Croft movies

These aren’t exactly highbrow entertainment, so it’s a little embarrassing to admit how many times I’ve watched them. But how can you not love Lara? She’s gutsy, fearless and always armed with a quick comeback. Girl power, y’all.


G.I. Joe: Retaliation

Go on, laugh. I like really over the top action scenes and this movie delivered. The mountain peak ninja sword fight? Totally never happening in real life, but very cool in a movie.


The Time Traveler’s Wife and The Vow

These are probably the two sappiest movies I’ve ever willingly watched. My goodness. In both movies the characters are deeply in love but are torn apart by horrible tragedies, and the amazing amount of love they still have for each other (and how hard they fight to save their relationships) is amazing. Just, uh, just don’t tell anyone I cried at the end.



So what movies are you embarrassed to admit loving? Fair is fair, I told you mine so ‘fess up in the comments!

  1. I don’t watch romantic movies like The Vow. I can’t handle the boo-hoo, gushy mushy, woe is me romance. I like action and adventure, or horror movies. I make a great movie date for guys.

  2. Is it weird that I have not seen any of these movies? :) But I don’t think you need to feel bad. I mean, as long as they entertain you or make you feel good, they can’t be bad! :)
    Thanks for linking up, you rule!

  3. I absolutely LOVE The Time Traveler’s Wife. I will definitely watch it whenever it’s on – as long as no one else is around! Great list.

  4. I, too, like, even love around the world in 80 days, I like the comedy parts and jackie chan is always fun to watch. I didn’t see the other movies on the list but I do like action movies and tough girl movies and sometimes overly romantic movies but I will only watch if they have some humor in them.

    I don’t think these movies aren’t all the shameful to admit to liking. people have diffferent tastes after all.

    strangely, I can’t think of a movie to list here. I know there’s plenty that people think aren’t all that great but for some reason right now, I can’t think of their titles.

    I did just watched karate kid with jackie chan, which I think most people don’t like, but I liked it and I’m not afraid to admit that I like movies that caters to kids and that aren’t overly sweet.

    hope you have a great day.

  5. I love the Lara Croft movies too! But the one I am most embarrassed about, and I watch it every time it comes on, is Sweet Home Alabama. Can’t help it, it’s like some weird addiction!

  6. Haha I like Steeve Coogan but I haven’t see that movie. I love The Trip with him. And yes, I join your club on the Lara Croft’s adventures. I don’t even know why I’ve watched it so many times :-)

  7. Around the World in 80 Days is from my childhood, I think I’ll always have a soft spot for that one! The only other one I’ve actually seen is “The Vow.”

  8. i’ve never seen these movies more than once, but i did enjoy them! sometimes i can be so high-brow with my movie taste, but then again, sometimes i love a dumb comedy (i’ve seen old school way more than i care to admit) or a sappy movie. eclectic is good!

  9. Aw! I never saw any of these movies. though I did rent G.I. Joe “for the husband” (in other words, for their juicy selection of men), but we didn’t ever get to actually watch it. Boo. Guess I’ll have to give it another go!
