Call them "cult classics." "Guilty pleasures." "Comfort movies." We all have a mental rolodex of flicks that may not be terribly popular but, for one reason or another, they resonate in a very special way. Maybe you saw it at the right moment. Maybe you just see gold where everyone else sees feces. Whatever the case, these are the special favorites that you keep stashed away for sick days. Here are some of ours.

If you've been following the news of Todd McFarlane's proposed take on "The Wizard of Oz," something that -- judging by his action figures -- will be a rather dark tale, you might be nervous about the twisted yellow brick road that awaits Dorothy Gale. If that's how you're feeling then you clearly haven't seen "Return to Oz." Read More...

This week's guest blog editor, "Halloween II" director Rob Zombie, shared his own Sick Day Stash pick with us, as you'll see in the video below. For the record, no one was trying to embarrass you, Rob. Please don't send Sid Haig and Bill Moseley after me. I'm not sure my frail heart could take the scare. With that out of the way, I would expect nothing less than "Dawn of the Dead" -- the George Romero one, of course -- from a horror geek like Zombie. Hit play to hear him defend it.

Get ready for "Sick Day Stash" to take on a whole new meaning. Decades before Robert Altman's "MASH," more than half a century ahead of Robert Rodriguez's "Spy Kids" and more than 75 years before "Kid Nation," one short Shirley Temple comedy thumbed its nose at the violent front lines of World War I, leaving a bizarre relic from its time that wedged child actors into hilariously unsettling adult roles.

When someone asks you if you want "the big gun" or "the good package," you know s/he's a fan of writer/director Dennis Feldman's "Real Men" (he also wrote "Just One of the Guys" and "The Golden Child"). The wacky spy comedy from 1987 follows ace-but-unorthodox CIA agent Nick Pirandello (Jim Belushi) as he escorts nebbishy family man Bob Wilson (John Ritter) to a secret rendezvous with aliens. Wilson isn't actually anything special, but he's the spitting image of Agent Pillbox, the assassinated CIA agent who the aliens are expecting to meet. Read More...
