Here are the rules:
Choose a super cheesy blockbuster B-rated movie(s). Genres include: disaster flicks (examples: Twister, Poseidon), alien invasions (i.e. Independence Day, Mars Attacks), creature attacks (Eight Legged Freaks,Tremors), retro horror (i.e. The Crawling Eye, The Blob), and 80s and 90s action (i.e. Total Recall, Armageddon), supernatural (The League of Extraordinary Gentleman, Van Helsing), and others like Battlefield Earth and the first three Star Wars. Here's a resourceful list for inspiration
In your post, include a picture(s) of your selection (etc) and reasons why you love that particular movie. Characteristics to consider may be the sense of adventure, the cast, the script, the one-liners, an nostalgic memory, the cult following. Share all the reasons why you are shamelessly in love with this particular movie; the sky's the limit!
Remember this blogathon is not about "bad movies"; it's about our unbreakable bond towards a cheesy blockbuster-esque movie with a setting, story, or character that introduces or deals with something not from this ordinary realm. (Even 90s action movies break the laws of nature and sane storytelling - so they count!)
Army of Darkness
Army of Darkness is the third film in the Evil Dead franchise, and in my opinion one of the most iconic Cult Classic films of all time.

It doesn't take itself seriously, which leads to so many quotable moments from lead actor Bruce Campbell. My friends and I could spend all day just using different quotes.

I could put clips and gifs on this post till it the whole of the movie is posted. The cornier the better!

This film has more skeletons than the Jason and the Argonauts. If this film was done today it would be a CGI heavy movie. Luckily it was done back when effects where an art form. Like I said from the beginning it doesn't take itself too seriously, so they take as many action and horror cliches as possible.
If you are interested in how they made some of them check out the site Book Of The Dead.

The movie comes out of the gates running. It is a continuation of what happened at the end of Evil Dead II. It combines A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court, the Three Stooges, and frenetic comic-book pacing. You barely have time to catch your breath between the action and the hilarity.
This is a B-flick I love the more I watch it. I know that It is sad that I can quote it line after line, but that is what keeps me coming back.
This is my favourite scene in the film.
Who wants some...more quotes!
I would like to thank Katy Rochelle for allowing us to share our love of B-flicks.
Also a special thanks to Ms Mariah for sharing about Katy's Blogfest!
