The very prestigious medal of awful!
There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between brilliance and stupidity, between quality entertainment and complete crap, and it lies between the best cinema ever and the biggest slap in the face to mankind ever put on film. This is the dimension of awfulness. It is an area which we call the bad movie! My name is Rod Serling…I mean Colby Shoup, and I will be your guide on a journey through this strange and confusing dimension. Throughout this odyssey, I will be taking a look back at movies that have been called some of the worst of all time and deciding whether or not they truly deserve to be called this, and if so, whether they are so bad they are good or just plain bad.
Movies that are so bad they are good will receive the prestigious “Medal of Awful” award which I’m sure the film makers will want to hang on their fridge and tell all their friends about. It’s kind of a big deal. Movies that are just plain bad will receive the “Your Movie is Bad and You Should Feel Bad” medal as well as the promise that anyone involved in the film will suffer for their sins in the fiery depths of Mordor. Lastly, if the movie is just okay or not so terrible after all it will receive the “Medal of Mediocrity”. I will also be giving out “Purple Hearts of Awful” to people working behind or in front of the camera who did particularly awful in the movie in question each week.
This series is going to be a lot of fun so make sure to visit wcyt.org every Wednesday for brand spanking new reviews of some of the worst the silver screen has to offer. Oh yeah, and if you have any suggestions for bad movies you want me to suffer through, feel free to make suggestions by commenting on this post, or by emailing me (my address is email@example.com)! Next week I will be reviewing the longtime record holder for lowest rating on IMDB…”Troll 2”! This is going to hurt folks…
