Have I got a movie for you !

Here’s a list of B grade (sshhh…not the dodgy ones!) movies you may have quickly browsed past, while surfing for more watchable channels, on your TV.

Well, in case you’re ridden with viewer’s remorse, here’s a cut & paste of précis immaculately drafted by the broadcaster! After all, the ‘i‘ button on the remote does have its use !

Well, apart from feeling sorry for those wannabe actors, actresses who couldn’t make it big in Hollywood, sh*t movies do provide a welcome relief ! Not sure if it’s a vicarious sense of pleasure to know that even in this day and age, there’s still budget, prospect, avenue and audience – however miniscule – for unpretentious crap ! Reassuringly sh*tty indeed ! 🙂

And, of course, before you become too envious, I must say I don’t really get to watch my fair share, as irritably boring sanity does get the better of me, somehow.
