    Here’s a post Burt or someone else should do:

    Why is it that once an actor/actress has been in any sci-fi/horror TV show or movie – no matter how bad it was or how dreadful they were – they are granted a career in sci-fi/horror movies for the rest of their lives? Not only a career, but one in which DVD boxes will say things like, “Featuring Walter Koenig of STAR TREK!” even if they have, like, 2 lines?Report

    I never understood the appeal of this kind of entertainment and probably never well.

    Keep in mind “so bad its good” has always gone over my head. Same with Camp and Kitsch.Report

      It can be a fun social activity. It’s simple enough that you can talk to people while you’re watching it without missing much. You can make fun of it together.Report

        I care about art too much. Life is too short and there is too much good art out there. I can’t imaging wasting time on the campy/kitschy stuff.

        Though I also don’t quite get passive entertainment either. Perhaps my brain is just hyper active.Report

        James,

        There is plenty of intentional comedy that I can watch and laugh with and at while still avoiding this stuff 🙂 Stuff with actual wit and intelligence.Report

        Oh just ignore NewDealer, he plain doesn’t get it.

        Let him have his high-brow artsy-fartsy “humor”, we can all enjoy this excellent beer & pizza movie without his belly-aching the death of wit.

        MRS,

        The Philadelphia Story isn’t funny?Report

        MRS was a Navy man. There’s nothing “funny” about covert invisibility experiments resulting in time-traveling destroyers. 😉Report

      • Avatar Rod says:

        The time-travelling part is fine by this Navy man. It’s the sailors embedded in bulkheads that give me the williies.Report

        Not compared to Bringing Up Baby.Report

        NewDealer,
        Surely you’d laugh at folks reading the stage directions??
        I’ll quote:
        “This is quite homoerotic”

        You’ve done theatre, surely you can laugh at people doing it wrong?

        (Note: additional hilarity ensues when someone tries to make a bad
        show, and instead makes a /good/ one).Report

      • Avatar Mad Rocket Scientist says:

        I agree with Rod, the whole “sailors in the bulkheads” bit was unfunny, the rest was pretty cool.Report
