Today I’m thankful for silly cinema.
I’m a fan of “B” movies. I like goofy 1950s sci fi films, interminable 1980s schlock, and most things in between. Robot Monster is one of my favorites – the “monster” is a man in a gorilla costume with a diving helmet. I was only able to get through Manos: Hands Of Fate by watching the Mystery Science Theater 3000 (MST3K) version. I’ve seen a good number of them by watching the MST3K episode, and then seeking out the movie in its own right.
I do have favorites, but I most enjoy the unintentional silliness of the films, usually because the crew involved weren’t entirely sure how to make a movie. Sometimes it seems they were so excited about being given a budget that they didn’t think anything else through. I’ve got a good sense of the absurd. Living in this crazy world makes me appreciate it more by the day. Videos are property of the respective creators.
