Hello, I'm Stephanie.
When Dave and I first came up with the idea for Cinema Craptaculus, we were discussing a movie that we'd both watched that was horrible. I can't remember what that movie was, but I'm pretty sure it was a stinker. I mean like really, really bad. So much so that we couldn't stop talking about it and then laughing about it, and then laughing about the fact that we were talking and laughing about it. One of us had an epiphany -- Let's record a show where we talk about rotten movies and laugh about them.
It was strange that I would even bother to waste my time watching such an awful movie to begin with. Stranger still, was the fact that I soon agreed to start recording a SERIES OF PODCASTS about equally crappy (or worse) movies. Bad idea taco supreme, right?
The thing is, I have very little tolerance for bad films. (For example, I will take the soul-burning wrath I felt after watching X-Men Origins: Wolverine and having paid upwards of $13 during a GLOBAL RECESSION to my grave.) But when I started thinking about it, watching bad movies has been a pastime of mine for longer than I realized. I have Mystery Science Theater 3000 to thank for that. That legendary TV series made me acknowledge that bad films have a certain beauty about them. The utter fecklessness of the filmmakers is bewitching. To the creative person, the crappy end product leads you to contemplate the mindset of everyone involved and whether you, too, could've been a victim of your own unrestrained hubris had you been given a chance.
That may be what we're doing here.
