François Truffaut once said that "Film lovers are sick people." He may have been on to something.

Shot/Reverse Shot: Episode 18 - What's The Worst Movie You've Ever Seen?
In the first minisode of October, Joe and I talk about the worst films that we have ever seen, which encompasses a fairly wide-ranging discussion of what constitutes a bad film - whether there are certain objective criteria by which such a thing can be determined - and whether anyone ever sets out to make a bad film. We also talk about how budget is no defense against a film being terrible, the depths to which Coreys Feldman and Haim sank after their '80s heyday, and the curious way in which midnight screenings have changed from being a showcase for cult - but good - films to opportunities for people to mock bad ones.
We also give Zack Snyder a break and decide to lay into Michael Bay, our other preferred punching bag.
