Wonderfully Bad Movies
At the end of a long week of classes, everyone has the need for a little theatrical entertainment, but after studying, listening to lectures, and taking tests, who has the mental energy left for paying attention to a serious movie?
For real, if your brain isn't 100% alert, don't even try to watch something like Syriana, The Good Shepherd, or worse, a supposedly "deep" independent film in subtitles. Otherwise, you will wind up being the annoying person who's constantly asking questions like, "Is that the same guy as before, why is she doing that, is he a bad guy?" When it's all over with, you'll have no idea what you just watched, and will have the uncontrollable urge to show the TV your middle finger.
Luckily, if you have one of Netflix's instant subscriptions, there is a wealth of mindless movies right at your fingertips. In fact, Netflix has made quite a name for itself by providing crappy movies. Remember this ShitFlix spoof from College Humor…
Sure, these movies are terrible, but you can watch them instantly and no brain power is required. I say embrace the cheesiness. Some of it is so bad you have to watch it just so you can tell your friends how ridiculous it was.
I was going to give you a list and descriptions of horribly-fantastic movies available on Netflix that all have a good dose of stupid one-liners, predictable plot lines, and gratuitous violence and nudity, but alas, someone has already done that (I guess there really aren't any more truly original ideas).
The funny part is, the name of the website is shit-flix.com. The movies are categorized and explained far better than what I could do in this little post, so I didn't even try. To get an idea of what you can find, some of the most recently highlighted movies are:
Killing 4 Dummys
And conveniently, many of the movie descriptions also include drinking games …. how thoughtful. Whether you're into vampires, slashers, hip hop, horror movies with ill-advised forensic science, or anything else weird, you will find it here.
So, check out the site and see if you can find something awful to watch this weekend. Some of my personal recommendations which I didn't see mentioned on Shitflix are:
Nude for Satan
