Going to the movies is always an experiences. Regardless of whether we loved them, hated them, or somewhere in between, there is something fascinating about the conversation that comes from the sitting in a dark room and watching the flickering lights of the screen with strangers.
Rotten Tomatoes: Rotten Movies We Love: Cult Classics, Underrated Gems, and Films So Bad They’re Good, was published back in 2019. Written by the editors of Rotten Tomatoes, the book delves in 101 films that according to the website are rotten. But what the critics said, the audience didn’t always agree with. Neither do the writers of this book, who also point out why some movies don’t initially do well at the box office, but somehow become cult classics.
This book is the perfect read for the film buff. It reminded me why fans and critics sometimes disagree. I loved that there is a down to earth feel to the writing, talking to reader instead of talking down to us.
Do I recommend it? Yes.
