    Here's the thing, let's use two franchise that were main points in the video; Riverdale and the MCU. Both of these franchises originated from comic books and were made into live-action by a multi-million dollar company. The difference is, the people who make the MCU movies for the most part care about the comics. They want them to do well and craft interesting stories, the people in charge of Riverdale, just want to bank on nostalgia, which is odd because no teenager today knows about a comic franchise from the 60's. But back to the point, they just see the Archie Comics as a hat that they draw names out of to create characters with. The MCU is successful because of its respect to the fans, Riverdale is just a cooperate money cow.

    Guess the whole "bad" movie thing comes from the whole concept of art being a craft, and how putting more details with meaning to the audience without being too obvious about it is viewed as "taking more effort and time". Futhermore, like for all industries, some people who are very passionate about the "highbrow" technical aspects of movie making and must feel ripped off seeing people with opposite values and execution making big bags and stealing their spot. Although personally I agree with the notion that entertainment is should be as thought provoking as it is entertainment, though it doesn't have to be in the same movie, but I hope that viewers take personal responsibility if they have a lot of free time, to use that time in a efficient, pdoductive, yet fun and rewarding way. Just mho though.

    The Problem with the kissing booth 2 is it makes no sense and has like nothing to it like the first movie it was interesting lots of stuff happening like the point of Noah and Elle dating and the rule they can’t date their besties relatives and there’s a lot of things happening but in the second it’s kinds boring and there’s no suspense to it so it makes it boring. That’s my problem with the kissing booth 2 that’s one reason why it’s such a terrible movie. The original kissing booth movie I feel like you can make it a series with 2 seasons episodes are 45 minutes each and it’s even more watchable just because of the plot and turns.

    Same reason we like to eat junk food. As long as you have a balanced diet, i.e. are enjoying crap as well as quality, then I think its fine. End of the day, people are allowed to enjoy what they want. If I want quality I'll watch Breaking Bad, if I just want a laugh and light entertainment I'll watch The Big Bang Theory or Spongebob.

    My friend hates avatar the last airbender. I asked her why since she's never even watched it. She said it was because it was not a "Real Anime"

    there are quite a few things in this video that could be talked more about but let's just say this, movies are generally made to fit someone, anyone's fantasy whether that be turning into a super hero, falling in love or whatever and not every movie will be catered to your liking actually a lot won't be which means it's not anyones place to decide what's good and what's bad because it might just not be for you, i mean we all seem to not like disney channel originals now that we are older but that's because those movies are low budgeted movies made for 10-13 year olds they're not for everyone unlike movies like marvel which can be for anyone who likes those kinds of movies. anyway that's all i doubt anyone will actually read this anyway lol ( too long)

    I think what makes a movie truly bad (when it comes to like teen rom-coms) is a bad message. Like the Kissing Booth because Noah is so, well, abusive towards Elle but because he’s hot the viewer is supposed to accept his behavior. And in universe by not punishing him for his controlling actions it teachers young girls that we should accept when a man (or woman frankly) treats one poorly. Like the mother who tacitly teachers her daughter, affection is shown through violence when saying, “he pulled your hair because he likes you”

    I feel like "good" movies are more like of a thinking game. You need to pay attention to trully understand the context in which everything is happening where as "bad" movies are more like a easy and chill thing you can laugh and cringe at. The real bad movies are the boring ones that don't capture your attention. At least thats how I feel about it...

  • Invox

    One word: Mythology. A film that delivers something for future generations is "good". Something that doesn't is "bad"... This can pretty much be said about any form of art really: Movies, Music, Photography, Sculpture, etc... Sure, we all love to unwind and sometimes just turn our brains off and be entertained with some pointless movie, but we also LOVE to hate and rant about stuff. All winderful evenings with friends can be filled just with trash talking a movie or movies. lol

    What makes a movie 'bad' or 'good' ? Sheer amount of inconsistency within its own universe a.k.a. established rules. And it doesn't matter if it's cheesy teen romcom or grand MCU. (Yes, I imply that cheesy teen romcoms do have world building rules) It all comes to down to viewer's understanding of said rules. And if movie is actually consistent within its own world. In this regards, MCU movies are not that good (it's OK at best). Aaand Netflix's teen romcoms are.. . well you've watched this channel

    i feel like a factor for what are bad movies are little misogynistic, when girls like rom-coms, it's cheesy and boring but when guys like action movies, stereoypically speaking it feeds into the role that girls are sensitive etc and boys are like brave and awesome yk? if it makes sense

    I think it's about the cinematography and the character development. Some bad movies keep using the same plot over and over that the storyline becomes so cliche, or that the movie keeps introducing some scenes that have nothing to do with the whole plot.

  • Lylaprice

    Well I don't think that twilight is a bad movie, the books are better ofc, but the movie is nice and it makes people feel happy, at least it makes me feel happy, that you don't like it doesn't mean it's bad, everyone has their own opinions, twilight is not the best movie ever, ik, but I disagree, I don't think it's dumb or bad Ik this video is not only about twilight, but is the one I know best

  • Actionfan19

    My dad loves bad movies because his standards are all over the place. Example he actually liked the 2012 movie Battleship just because, meanwhile he actively avoids Will Ferral and Seth Rogan movies like the plague. Meanwhile I think Battleship was among the dumbest movies ever made in the history on anything yet enjoyed both anchorman movies and the movie this is the end.

  • Dreamchaser

    When it comes to, "Bad," stories I believe that it's best to differentiate between two qualities: Narrative quality and Entertainment quality. Narrative quality being: Plot, character, setting, conflict. Entertainment quality being: Emotional connection, competitive enjoyment, quality dialogue, and curiosity. Narrative quality is like a ball: It can be full, round, refined, etc. You could have the best ball in existence, but it isn't going anywhere without some type of interference. Entertainment quality is the arrow that pushes the ball forward. If the arrow is strong enough, it could even push a slow, deflated ball.

    Personally I like Star Wars and avengers and yes they do get criticized but as a teen girl I don’t find the teen girl movies enjoyable to watch because there’re either not relatable or realistic. Teen girl movies are trying to portray a serious real life story but avengers and Star Wars make their unrealistic storyline serious making it more enjoyable to watch. With these teen girl movies I find them only funny and I don’t really get invested with the characters at all.

    “Bad cheesy cringey movies” are easy to watch without paying too much attention and are strictly there to pass time and entertain without needing to construct too much. They’re also easier to review and more fun to review and make fun of.

    Does anybody else ever notice these teen roncon romances are just like magna animes? Seriously it's like they always take the first guy that likes them no matter how bad they treat them and then the sweetest guy that's like the perfect match for them comes along ( and is everything they ever ever wanted in a man) and they get all romantic but they pick the first guy every time?! Wtf no matter what!!! They're going to make three kissing booth or she picks tall handsome blonde dude every time even though the other dude worked extra extra hard and really cared about her so what's the point of making the third one she's not going to leave what's his name. Secondly to all the boys I ever loved here we go again the popular hot guy that she really don't have nothing in common with and then Here Comes this second job he's just like her he cares about her he's everything that the other one isn't and they clicked so much better and got so much in common. What do you know she picked popular jerk off that she picked in the first movie if they make a third one which there's no point she's going to pick the popular jock this is just like anime romance exactly! and it's kind of stupid and it really is cuz they're teenagers are literally 16 17 18 year old teenagers and you don't stay most people do not stay with their high school sweetheart their whole off they go to college or they grow up and then get in the real world and they meet someone else, but in these movies this will never happen! It actually would make more sense if in The kissing booth if she did end up with the other guy because why didn't she tell anyone she got accepted into both college?? That she's taking time off!?! Like what are you doing girl.... she's exploring your options 😉. I hope she ends up with the other dude I truly do I think they had more going on for each other! but it's not like I'm into them or anythings... Cough walking away now lol

    Flavours of Youth is a bad movie. It's boring and repetitive. The visuals are nice, beautiful even. But the plot fails to have any redeemable interesting qualities. It jumps through time, introduces numerous new characters. Only for those characters to prove they have no significance to plot progression. Then it doesn't even play out enough for the ending to make sense.

  • Yellowish Green Dragon .-.

    Personally the movies I find "Bad" are the one's that leave me so angry at how they ended the movie. Or how they did the characters so dirty. The movies that leave me angry usually have a steady developed plot at the beginning. That seems interesting. Only for it to fall apart and make no sense what-so-ever towards the end. They leave me angry at how they wasted my time. The most recent bad movie I watched was an anime movie called Fireworks. It made no sense towards the end. The characters didn't even stick around long enough to be in the end. Any redeemable plot points it had were thrown out the window.

    A place I really see this weird obsession with culling out what's acceptable to enjoy is music. Sometimes I feel like people complaining about how shitty modern pop music is are just trying to sound smarter than people who listen to it. Pop music is popular by definition so clearly they're doing something a lot of people gain happiness from. There's no such thing as "good" and "bad" music. Just music you personally enjoy and music that isn't to your tastes. No need to down talk people who are different than you.

    Bad movies, as I think many people have said in the comments, is kind of like a way to escape the realities of real life. (especially if it’s like a teen rom com or comedy) Like movies like the Kissing Booth. Sometimes, it’s just mindless junk that we watch to calm ourselves down from the harsh realities of life. There are some bad movies that you don’t mind watching because you can feel that it’s not meant to be taken seriously. Honestly, sometimes I watch bad movies just to make fun of it (like Alex does). Also, people may watch a movie not for the plot but for the cast. It really depends. I like the bad movies that at least make a little bit of sense and have some sort of a premise (even if that plot gets lost on the way). I like it when it’s at least a little bit cohesive. But if you just piece together random clips with no premise or no attempts to try and narrate a story, I probably watch it. Some of these bad movies just either send the wrong message or try to hard to be taken seriously. Like seriously, what was the message and plot behind a movie like 365 days? I know people say it’s just Stockholm Syndrome: the movie, but was that really the writer’s intent? What’s the story?

    I went to a uppity college for French and Japanese film noir. I love White Chicks and Germlins 2. Films are art. Art is subjective. Some films are better than others because of writing, actors and plots but from any movie you can find something good, even if it's bad.

    For me, terrible movies give me a headache. As a writer, I can just see all the terrible parts of movies although it seems like it's only the recent Disney movies (I wonder why that is). But yeah, I love watching critiques on movies, both good and bad, and not just because I like seeing people hating and nitpicking famous films (C'mon people, just admit that gives you at least a little pleasure), but also because I'm a writer and I like seeing what makes movies work and fail so that I can create works that avoid the worst and use the bests. So, thank you for these videos Alex!

      A bit of very frequent advice is "Write about what you know", but at times it is hilariously bad advice. I mean by that the following: it's ideal if a writer can spend their formative years exposed to as many impulses as possible. The Hate U Give is one good example of being a switch in a dual culture where both expects you to be something you're not only because that's the norm, which was a well-written novel adapted into a movie as it was based on real life. It's not hard to write science fiction, at least its fiction part, since living worlds apart, even within a country like the US is a daily reality for too many people, which produced the expectation of characters not based on real or known people are, hence why the discussion about representation. In the first two decades of the new millennium we've learned, that for far too long and far too often women and minorities have not been listened to. This claps back in procedural dramas, casting a white actress for an Asian role, or even denying paraplegic actors to give auditions for a role that was eventually played by an able-bodied actor. I don't regret not watching the American remake of Les Intouchables


    Then there are movies like The Room, which are so bad they’re good
