Ofelas is on Youtube.

I happen to enjoy cheesy movies like those, never mind any cult followings. It's good to laugh about shit that isn't so serious.

Conan the Barbarian seems to be respected these days, mainly because of its highly acclaimed score by Basil Poledouris. I like it and know a few people who are film buffs and also do. But there's no denying it is cheesy.
Mongol was okay. There's some pretty great scenery in it and it's interesting to hear spoken Mongolian.
That reminds me I meant to watch that when it came out and forgot about it until now. Thanks for reminding me, seriously.

It's hard for me to decide what my favorite American movie(s) in particular is/are. I don't think I ever really gave too much thought into which ones are my favorites and why, whereas with Indian movies, I do this a lot. It's also easier for me to tell with Indian movies because there are relatively few with (somewhat) realistic plot lines.
