I own Bubba Ho-tep and have yet to watch it entirely.  I remember Phantasm 1 & 2 being quite fun as a kid and Beastmaster is just ok but for animal-party fantasy epics, I'll take Richard Donner's Ladyhawke any day.

I've only seen Bubba Ho-Tep and it was enjoyable.

Ossie Davis as JFK is the man.

I detest this movie.

Beastmaster is awesome though.

Don Coscarelli is a terrible director, among the worst I've seen discussed in these forums.  He's not just a hack, he's a bad hack who's transparent in his hackiness.  He gives uninspired a bad name and his ambition always exceeds his abilities.

I hope not.  Still a long way to go until Halloween.

I think I'd love how awkward it'd be, or how awkward it should be.

Bubba Ho-tep is the only one I've seen. It has some funny parts but it lost me towards the end.
