Watching a terrible movie by yourself can be fun, but doing it alone on your couch can make you wonder if you're actually the The Revolting Blob. Bringing people together for bad films: Terrible Movie Night.
Just launched last week, TMN's mission is to promote the mockery of comically terrible films through the establishment of Netflix group viewings/live blogging sessions, an idea seeded when the founder stumbled upon a photo from the 1974 sci-fi epic Zardoz featuring a ponytail'd Sean Connery in a red mankini, sexily revealing his Famous T*tties. Once you spot a movie that piques your interest on the schedule, sync up your Netflix (or snag it on iTunes/Amazon & fire it up at the designated time) and join the running chat commentary, in which everyone's snarky skewering comes with a timestamp, not to be confused with a tramp stamp, though those also see lots of skewering. Previous screenings've included the childhood-crushing G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra, the epic Howie Long vehicle Broken Arrow, and the original Japanese release of Godzilla, which never appealed to Raiders fans, as they spend all day watching a horrible ancient lizard wreak havoc anyways.
On tap tonight's the 1935 cult fave Transatlantic Tunnel, in which a team of international scientists embark on the complicated and ambitious eponymous undertaking, though not nearly as ambitious as getting someone to watch it with you, considering you're The Pest.
