To be fair, that's not the domain of only B movies. It was the #1 complaint about the Hollywood Godzilla movie that came out this year (and made $100m opening weekend).MovieBob said:Oh, and also nothing interesting really happens for the first forty minutes or so, which is frustrating but familiar if you've ever sat through, say, Monstroid waiting for Monstroid to show up.
Yup. people seem to rather just be shut ins and watch stuff by themselves, but bad movies? Those can only be tolerated by laughing at with a group, maybe with a few drinks in hand. The most reliable way I've gotten friends over for movie nights is by creating a collection of "bad movies." There's something about them that just is not present when you try and watch them by yourself.MovieBob said:It's a cliché at this point, but the information age really has isolated and divided us where it was supposed to bring us closer together. If pointing and laughing at people who used to be famous running away from a tornado full of sharks is what it takes to get us to actively share cultural experience again? I'll take it.
