    "OMG, Hairspray is one of my guilty pleasures. It's funny and entertaining despite the convoluted plot. It also showed body positivity 'coz Tracy is proud of herself. I also loved Divine's performance, we'll miss you."

    "When my grandma and I watched the new Batman movies, I asked her "which Batman movie is her most favorite". She replied with a grin on her face "Batman The Movie, the one with Adam West!". I was perplexed and ask her "Why?". She said " Today's Batman movies are too dark, sad, angry, loud and brooding. I prefer the older one because it's fun and exciting". I can't disagree with that retort."

    "Tommy Wiseau is weird! He conversates like an extraterrestrial. He doesn't know how to make love with Lisa. Their acting is like from a highschool stage play. Still, it's very funny."

    "Trolls 2 is one of those classic B movies with campy acting. I bet they shot the film in one take, no rehearsals or several takes to correct errors. The screaming nerd is one of the best memes in Troll 2 though."

    "Do you know the reason why Pink Flamingos is regarded as campy? It has an ironic value with a mix of bad taste. It inverted the notion of aesthetic attributes into something alien. Heck, even Divine's over the top acting carries the overall campy expression of the film. It won't hurt to watch Pink Flamingos despite its weirdness."

    "Total Recall has all of the cheeziness of 90s action movie. You got Arnie and his bad acting, you got ridiculous sci-fi special effects, you got your typical action sequences. It's dated but still a funny action movie."

    "In a decade where superhero films are filled with dark and brooding plot, a cheesy, American film stands from the rest, Spider-Man!. With Tobey MacGuire's and Willem Dafoe's ridiculous acting, Spider-Man is a funny action movie at that time."
