In the tradition of Mystery Science Theater 3000, except you can't tell which ones are the robots. - David Manning
Cinema is our culture's dominant art form.
It holds up a mirror to who we are.
It reflects our society, our dreams, our hopes, our fears.
Our films are how future generations are going to judge us.
Unfortunately, most of them suck.
Seriously, though - ever notice how you can't walk down the street or open a magazine or stand in line at a store or simply exist without ads for some dumbass multi-zillion dollar movie about a talking kangaroo
being shoved down your throat?
And then they expect you to pay fifteen dollars to see it in some googolplex, and after sitting through a half hour of commercials? Or watch it on DVD and have to sit through even more commercials and anti-piracy ads that you can't skip past? Doesn't it all just piss you off?
If so - or if you just like to have a good time - then Bad Movie Night is for you.
Laugh with the hosts riffing on the movie. Yell your own comments. Try to figure out what the hell "Skull Films!" means. Help yourself to the free popcorn. Enjoy the non-alcoholic beverage of your choice purchased from the store across the street. Don't worry if the guy behind the counter glares at you. He does that to everyone.
Best of all, only pay six measly bucks (and ninety-nine measly cents).
I don't mean Bad Movie Night, which is ending on March 29, 2015 -- I've mentioned that before, right? -- but rather these movies.
Nor am I referring the box office success of these movies, because they continue to be big hits, and even get the occasional critical praise.
Nah, I mean the titles of the sequels. They were getting kinda creative there for a while.
(argument could be made that now at least you know what order to watch them in, whereas previously only 2 Fast and Fast Five gave you a hint of their order, but that's a different matter)
The first one set the template...
...then the second one had a stupid yet clever name (there's a fine line between those two)...
...the third one returned to the first film's title, then subtitled, essentially establishing "The Fast and the Furious" as a brand...
...and the fourth changed that brand, dropping the definite articles and replacing the "and" with an ampersand...
...and the fifth said fuck it, let's alliterate with a word other than "furious!"
But this one goes and messes it all up, by returning to the style of the fourth movie and just splapping a (non-roman) numeral on it. Boo.
Boo x 6, in fact.
Your hosts Jim Fourniadis and Tim Kay
