Very well put. I'm sure all of us understand, but to the newer viewers(I'm aware this seems ironic as my account is new; I'm a long time follower though), this is a very nice explanation.
I'd absolutely love to see some so-bad-it's-good Hong Kong kung-fu flicks. I know about the Cynthia Rothrocks & the Bruno Matteis, but I'm looking for some with all asian casts. "The Story of Ricky" was glorious.
That's why I'm kind of worried about Birdemic 2, that he's intentionally going for the campy laughs now and it'll be most likely a lot less funny than the original. Have you seen the quick teaser trailer for it? I know it's early to be writing it off, but it came across as forced as it can be - like Nguyen is saying "Yeah, I was in on the joke, isn't this going to be hysterical?"As we've seen in Phelous' Blubberella review, forced wackiness with little talent behind it just doesn't work.
Sincerity. Exactly! That's why they so appealing. It's like Ed Wood's movies. We know that it's crap but love it because we see passion in it.
I like review bad movies....because they're good. it's that ironic, but sensible quote that few can pull off.
