    cant remember if this has Jennifer Anniston in, might be the other one, but a good b-movie

    Also try the Troll, Troll 2 and Krull - good films of the 80's.

    Also the "GATE" its a horror, but bloody awesome, with a 10 year old Stephen Dorf saying the classic line "Suck my nose till my face caves in"

    That's a good 'un.
    So was the Last Star Fighter.

    Witchblade is good if you can find a copy. It was the pilot for the series with Yancy Butler (the girl from Hard Target/Dropzone) There's supposed to be a new Witchblade film due this year too :clap:.

    The Crow: Stairway to heaven (basicly a re-telling of the classic original with Mark Decascos as Eric Draven, again the pilot for a series)

    Not really a B-movie though. More hard-core proper science fiction.

    Interesting one, that. Although it had not yet been released when The Matrix had started production (1998; The Matrix came out in 1999), the visual style is all but identical. The Wachowski brothers had a limited imagination in more than one sense...

    2005 Serenity <- sad that this is a BMovie, but anybody who hasnt seen it needs to.

    Not to nitpick, but some of them 2000-2008 films did not seem like B Movies at all. Minority Report ? Iron Man ? Hitchhikers Guide ? Incredible Hulk ? All massive films!

    Also... THE MATRIX ? A BMOVIE ? One of the greatest films of all time, with Keanu Reeves? That big hollywood A list actor ? That list is full of ****! :)

    I'll admit there are quite a few blockbusters mixed in there, but also a metric a**load of B-movies.

    I also love Serenity, especially having met half the cast (Mal, Kaylee & River)! :D
