Mr. B.

Joe Barbera died.

A lot of us grew up watching the same cartoons, and most likely the first, alongside our Looney Tunes and Merry Melodies, were Hanna-Barbera.

In celebration of having a big project being shot and being home before 10 p.m., here's movies I love that film snobs will be upset about. Not quite so bad they're good, but some are kinda close:

'Real Genius' - the best Val Kilmer movie? I think so. And so should you.

'Anaconda' - Jon Voight versus a giant-ass CGI snake with Ice Cube trying not to swear. And Keri Wurer is fun to say. But maybe not to spell.

'Executive Decision' - yeah, you know what? F' you. It's awful. But there's some Kurt Russell. And if it's on TV I watch it.

'Tango & Cash' - Ah! Kurt Russell! Again! Woo hoo!

'My Science Project' -shut up Bryan. You konw you love it. And anything with Fisher Stevens.

' Tremors' - Fred Ward. Kevin Bacon. Michael Gross. And Reba. Fighting Tremors. With dynamite.

' Cry Baby' - I've seen it through once, but I watch it if it's on the TV. Is John Waters even bad? Is he beyond bad? Anti-bad?
