I like to think I can take a pretty cynical view of the world. I’ve got a degree in English Literature, for fuck’s sake: not only am I familiar with the differences between structuralism and deconstructionism, I also have few job prospects.
So IMAGINE MY SURPRISE when I finally admitted to myself: I love crap films. I can’t get away from them, and I can’t deny it any more. Forgotten cult film from the 80s? I’m all about it. Modern blockbuster, panned worldwide? I want to give it a hug.
My plan here is to go through movies generally hated by Rotten Tomatoes and the “critics,” and point out the Silver Linings (TM). I’m especially fond of big-budget action films that completely ATE IT at the box office.
No matter how shit the film, I’ll find something good to say about it. I’m like your grandma even after you’ve totaled her car and killed her cat in the process.
And I’m hoping I’m not the only one. For all you other awful-movie-lovers out there who can’t quite justify or put into words why you leave a cinema with a grin on your face regardless of the atrocity you’ve just seen: this is for you.
That’s why this blog exists.
