Guilty pleasure action movies are a lot of fun to watch, but viewers may not enjoy admitting to their coworkers that they watched them at work the next day. These are lowbrow films with ridiculous high concepts that may not make a lot of sense, but they do feature some pretty cool explosions.

Other times, a movie with no plot to speak of has a really talented stunt crew and graphics effects artists working behind the scenes. A movie doesn't have to be an Oscar-winner to be an enjoyable way to spend an hour or two. Scorsese may call these movies "rollercoaster films" - but honestly, what's wrong with being on a rollercoaster?
