OK, yes, the Unexpected Blogathon hasn’t dropped yet, but I’m announcing the So Bad It’s Good Blogathon now because I’m kind of excited about this idea. So excited that I’d like to hold it in February, which is filling up fast. Plus, Gill from Realweegiemidget Reviews and I were talking on Twitter yesterday about this topic and the wheels in my head started turning. Thanks for the idea, Gill! So here we go.
We’ve all seen bad movies. As in, so bad we split our sides laughing. I know I have. Sharknado. Princess of Thieves. Pretty much anything by Asylum Films. Lifetime movies. Disney sequels. Sixties surfer flicks. They lurk everywhere. Even blockbusters can be turkeys. We loathe them, we make faces at them, and in the end we remember them for their singular inferiority. They may even wind up as guilty pleasures.
Which movie is that movie for you? Or maybe you have a whole slew of them? Either way, let’s talk about it. The fateful weekend will be February 22nd through the 24th of 2019.
Here are the rules:
- Posts can be sent to me on or around February 22nd through the 24th via the Comment section, Twitter, Instagram (both @TakingUpRoom), or e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Only new material, please.
- Since this is such a big topic, duplicates will be verboten, although the same movie can be approached from different angles. For instance, one person can do a straight review of a movie while another includes the same film as part of a list.
- Movies can be from any era or of any genre, and can be TV movies, features, indies, or B-movies. Lists of bad movies are fine. If anyone is stuck for an idea, streaming services or YouTube are a boon. Amazon Prime in particular is a gold mine for bad movies (Suggested search topic: Sharks. Trust me on this one.).
