    The top ten unfashionable movies in the Amazon.co.uk 100 most rented chart:
    1. Spice World (1997)
    2. The Sound of Music (1965)
    3. Annie (1982)
    4. Bambi (1942)
    5. Super Mario Bros (1993)
    6. Barb Wire (1996)
    7. Thunderbirds (2004)
    8. Titanic (1997)
    9. Hellboy (2004)

    While I can understand most of them - Hellboy?? That was good fun!

    Hi,

    Titanic and The Sound Of Music shouldn't be in there either?! What about Battlefield Earth, or a hundred other of the major stinkers that exist to rent/buy on DVD?!

    Definitely an odd list, I'm surprised about the new releases as I'm sure people would at least be curious. Hellboy being there is really odd - although I wasn't too enthused with the theatrical release I watched the Directors Cut the other night and it's head and shoulders better. :)

    Worryingly, I've seen most of them from 1990 onwards at the cinema. Even Spice World. I can't for the life of me remember what on earth possessed me to go, but there was a reason at the time. Honest! :suicide:

    I once went to the pictures to see Ace Ventura: Pet Detective but it was sold out and saw Schindler's List instead. Slightly different genres!

    I thought Hellboy was good fun. But then in view of my bad taste, I'd better keep quiet now! :D

    So...

    This is a bizarre list. Quite what "Bambi", "The Sound of Music", "Titanic" and "Hellboy" are doing on there is a puzzle. Would love to know what criteria determines "unfashionable" too? Weird! :confused:

    P.S: Haven't seen "Spice World". Is it the sequel to "Dune"? :D

    Yeah - In fact the one called Geri is the queen sand worm or something ;)

    The list is, as all lists are, subjective to taste (I can't stand Titanic personally) - but Hellboy is an oddity as is Bambi. The Sound Of Music is included mostly due to perception mostly I think. Barb Wire is in the same kind of bracket as Showgirls - although not quite in the same league as that cult movie.

    I think for unfashionable read - embarassing to rent.

    Now you're talking matey! :smashin:

    If you're going to watch a crap movie, it might as well be something as spectacularly crap as Showgirls! A must have!

    Bought this last year, unseen, out of curiosity as the rather tasty limited edition box set (itself a monument to tat and bad taste :) ) was going for pennies on DVD Soon.

    PMSL!!! :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

    But that's the exact point I was making - the perception isn't always the reality and that's why I made the comment. We all can understand, say Barb Wire and Spice World - but in its own way TSOM is tarred with a similar brush - it's got a stigma attached basically - founded or unfounded.

    At the end of the day - I thought the list would certainly be amusing/eye-opening - hence why I posted it!

    I was taking cue from the title – Rodge Dodger just sounds… dodgy!

    TSOM is one of those "guilty pleasures" - a movie that lots of people secretly like, but few will admit to. It is no more saccharine than most other musicals out there. It's even got Nazis in!!!

    Julie rules! :smashin:

    Thought of a movie that should be in any "Toe Curling Top Ten". My toes have curled at least once (twice on a good night) during each and every viewing of "Debbie Does Dallas"... :)

    My worst film ever is.. The Vault. I've never seen a film that even come close to it!!! It was SO bad I was glued to it and couldn't tear myself away because I couldn't believe how bad it was and if it could get any worse!!!
