Back in March, I asked you, my lovely readers, about your least favourite songs ever. I always knew you were an opinionated bunch, and your input on this subject really was such fun to read and respond to – which meant that I enjoyed writing the resulting post so much that I have decided to try the experiment again.
Inspired by a conversation on Twitter about my personal favourite bad film (Robin Hood, Prince of Thieves – yes, I know…) and a suggestion made by one of my readers, I decided that the next topic for you lot to get your teeth into would indeed be bad films.
More specifically, I want to hear your views on bad films, bad performances and bad actors. Here’s a few pertinent questions for you to contemplate:
How would you define a bad film?
Is there a difference between a bad film and one you actively dislike? Why?
What is your most hated film? Why?
Have you ever walked out of a movie at the cinema because it was so bad?
What film was it?
What made you walk out?
Are there some ‘bad films’ that are actually good?
Do you have a ‘guilty pleasure’ – a bad movie that you secretly (or not so secretly!) love?
And are there some films that are so bloody awful that they don’t even fall into the ‘so bad it’s good’ category?
What’s the worst, most ‘phoned in’ and/or overplayed performance you’ve ever seen in a movie?
Are there any actors or actresses who are particularly guilty of the above?
Worst scripts, direction, costumes etc?
Feel free to answer as many or as few questions as you want! Getting involved is simple – leave your answers in a comment here, or join in the debate on the Another Kind Of Mind Facebook page.
Oh, and if you’re looking for inspiration, I recommend you check out FUMB Films, where you’ll find one man’s reviews of some really, really, really bad movies…
