So Bad It’s Good: Wrapup and A Little Housekeeping

Wow, all, it's been a weird, wonderful weekend full of some lovably terrible (or just terrible) movies. I've read through about half of all our contributions, and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest. Here are Day One, Day Two, and Day Three for those who are catching up, or who maybe want to revisit … Continue reading So Bad It’s Good: Wrapup and A Little Housekeeping

A Bigger, Healthier Tomato

We've seen a Guilty Pleasure Movie. We've seen a Plain Old Bad Movie. Now, for my third post, we're going to see a "How the Heck Did THIS Get Greenlighted?" Movie. So not kidding. Buckle up, everyone. As you all know, the seventies were a notoriously dicey decade for cinema. They've been well represented this … Continue reading A Bigger, Healthier Tomato

So Bad It’s Good: Day the Second

Ready to cringe? You've come to the right place. We had some great entries yesterday, and here's another assortment of film turkeys. Spit-takes are optional, although possibly not advisable. However, to each their own. 🙂 Let's proceed, shall we? The Midnite Drive-In comes back for Round Two with 1953's Glen or Glenda. It probably comes as no … Continue reading So Bad It’s Good: Day the Second

Elle Goes to the Hill

Yesterday we looked at a Guilty Pleasure. Today's film, however, is just bad. Four words: Good. Grief. Charlie. Brown. When we last left Elle Woods (Reese Witherspoon), she was valedictorian of her class at Harvard Law School, with a promising career ahead of her. Yeahhhh, that was 2001. In 2003, Elle got a sequel: Legally Blonde … Continue reading Elle Goes to the Hill

The So Bad It’s Good Blogathon Has Arrived!

Time to behold the worst of the worst, guys! Several of you hit the ground running and sent your posts in early, so kudos and thanks muchly. I'm looking forward to see what everyone else has got for us too, so here's to three days of pulled faces, guffaws, and belly groans. Without further ado... … Continue reading The So Bad It’s Good Blogathon Has Arrived!

You Oughta Be In A Lifetime Movie

And here we go... It's hard to believe the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been married for almost eight years now and have three kids. Who doesn't remember all the excitement leading up to the wedding? There were Will and Kate masks, Will and Kate dolls, Will and Kate teaspoons, and let's not forget … Continue reading You Oughta Be In A Lifetime Movie

Shamedown #1: Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

Here we are again. Want to know more about the Shame thing? Please visit Cinema Shame. Last year's Shamedowns can be found here. Onward... Like I said in my Shame Statement, I've only ever wanted to see 2001's Lara Croft because Chris Barrie's in it. Other than that, Lara's basically a female Indiana Jones, except with tighter … Continue reading Shamedown #1: Lara Croft: Tomb Raider

Reading Rarities: As Seen On TV

Ah, yes. Infomercials. Everyone's seen them. In my neck of the woods, we have a channel that plays them all day and all night, seven days a week. It's either hilarious or mind-numbing, depending on what time of day it is, and that time is highly nebulous. Anything involving Cathy Mitchell is usually fun, Others … Continue reading Reading Rarities: As Seen On TV

I Want Torpedo Juice

Presenting Mr. Keaton... Although he's best known for his silent films, Buster Keaton had an extensive film career after talkies came in, right up until his death. One of his last films was 1965's How To Stuff A Wild Bikini. We've been here before, but this time we're going to take a closer look, if that's … Continue reading I Want Torpedo Juice

Communists Among Us

Hello, Ms. Lansbury... Gen X-ers like me and those who were born later most likely think of Angela Lansbury as Jessica Fletcher on Murder, She Wrote or as Mrs. Potts on Beauty And the Beast. Lansbury is a nice, motherly lady with scads of class and moxie. However, Lansbury does mix things up now and then, and when … Continue reading Communists Among Us

Erasing Lowell Thomas

Time to regale about Mr. Kennedy, although not as much as I would like to... It's hard to find a more legendary figure in Western history than T.E. Lawrence, and journalist, Lowell Thomas was instrumental in bringing him to the public's attention. He was the first to give Lawrence the name, "Lawrence of Arabia." Thomas … Continue reading Erasing Lowell Thomas
