Martin Scorsese lists his guilty pleasures in an article for Film Comment, along with an additional "100 random pleasures" divided into 50 guilty and 50 unguilty pleasures.
1-30 are the guilty pleasures described in detail in the main body of the article.
31-80 are the guilty pleasures in the random pleasures list, which he describes by saying: "On the whole, these films are not good. They’re guilty. But there are things in them that make you like them, that make them worthwhile."
81-130 are the unguilty pleasures in the random pleasures list, which he describes as "films that I love, even though something spoils them."
Published in the May/June 1998 edition of Film Comment.
Paul Verhoeven (born July 18, 1938) is a Dutch film director, screenwriter, and producer who has made movies in both the Netherlands and the United States. Explicitly violent and/or sexual content and social satire are trademarks of both his drama and science fiction films. He is best known for directing the American feature films RoboCop (1987), Total Recall (1990), Basic Instinct (1992), Starship Troopers (1997), and Hollow Man (2000).
Turkish Delight (1973) received the award for Best Dutch Film of the Century at the Netherlands Film Festival. His films altogether received a total of nine Academy Award nominations, mainly for editing and effects. Both RoboCop and Total Recall won an Academy Special Achievement Award. In contrast, his film Showgirls (1995) was poorly received and won seven Golden Raspberry Awards, but has become a cult film over time.
A complete list of the film collaborations between Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (a.k.a. The Archers)
"I think that a film should have a good story, a clear story, and it should have, if possible, something which is probably the most difficult thing - it should have a little bit of magic...Magic being untouchable and very difficult to cast, you can't deal with it at all. You can only try to prepare some nests, hoping that a little bit of magic will slide into them."
This list is from Stephen Cavalier's book [url=http://www.amazon.com/World-History-Animation-Stephen-Cavalier/dp/0520261127]The World History of Animation[/url] (2011).
The book starts with an introduction and brief histories of world animation, with a list of key films for each continent. The rest of the book is a chronological time line of films, with information about each film as well as biographies and explanations of animation techniques.
This is the chronological time line. I'm including only the films that have their own section, not all of the films mentioned within the text. For series of shorts, I included only the 1st from each series.

Here's the 100 best comedy movies as chosen by over 200 people whose job it is to make you laugh.
We spoke to dozens of comedy writers, comedy directors, comic actors and stand-up comedians and asked them to share with us their favourite comedy films of all time.
This page contains the 189 films (to date) that we heartily-highly-recommend above all others. They are listed in the Recommended Viewing section as HR (highly recommended) along with 400-odd other films, but these are the ones we return to and cherish most often.
2010 book by writer/ reviewer/ editor Steve Miller, covering what he considered to be the very worst movies of all time.
Note that some movies in the book, including [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/suspiria/]Suspiria[/url], [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/the+black+cat/]The Black Cat[/url] and [url=http://www.icheckmovies.com/movies/braindead/]Braindead (Dead Alive)[/url] are considered by many to be good films rather than bad.
The title of the book reads "150 Movies" but there's actually 153 in there, including 2 versions of Attack of the Giant Leeches.
The book is split into sections, rather than ordered:
1-5 "Exhibits in the Bad Movie Museum"

14-19 "Creaky Classics"
20-23 "Freaky Families"
24-35 "Gory, Gorier, Goriest"
