10 Terrible Movies That We Love Anyway

By Morgan Gardiner

There are plenty of bad movies out there, and mostly audiences feel that their time has been wasted by sitting through them. Then there are movies that are so bad and over-the-top audiences end up laughing and enjoying themselves.

Whether it be a movie with a totally ridiculous concept, a nonsensical script or awful acting, some movies can’t help but be enjoyed as the piece of terrible cinema they are. Here are ten of them:

1. Show Girls (1995)

For a movie about dancing, Show Girls has a lot of really bad dancing. In one memorable scene, main character Nomi (Elizabeth Burkley) almost knocks out five or more people while flailing wildly at a dance club, and that’s before the fight breaks out. But not content to have some of the worst dancing in film, Show Girls also has some of the worst acting. Nomi shouts most of her dialogue and the film’s antagonist Cristal (Gina Gershon) balances this out by whispering most of hers. It’s a movie that is impossible to be played at a reasonable volume.

On top of that, there never was a film that made less sense with its characters reasoning than Show Girls. It’s like the cast have had complex discussions about motives and relationships off screen, but as soon as the camera is on they develop an instant case of amnesia and settle whatever the problem is through who can scream the loudest. In addition to that, the plot is insanely convoluted.

There are high fantasy epics with fewer subplots. Yet somehow, Show Girls is still a cult classic, with a nomination for worst movie of all time at the Golden Rassies under its belt. It’s a bad movie that audiences have loved to hate for over twenty years, and that will → continue…

The 20 Most Visually Stunning Movies of 2017

By Shane Scott-Travis

2017 was a particularly stunning year for film as so many awe-inspiring visuals lit up living rooms, bijous, drive-ins, and multiplexes the world over.

Taste of Cinema’s tireless and exciting search for the most visually exquisite films of 2017 was no easy charge, and not one we undertook lightly, although several films stood out straight away. The assembled list presented here offers up the finest films of dazzling depth, stirring symmetry, gorgeous framing, and assured grace. Enjoy!

20. Mimosas

Dubbed by its director and co-writer Oliver Laxe (You Are All Captains) as “a Religious Western”, this Nespresso Grand Prize winner was filmed on location, high in the Atlas Mountains of Morocco.

Divided into three chapters, Mimosas tells the ponderous tale of a caravan escorting an elderly sheikh who’s close to death and wants to be buried with his loved ones in Sijilmasa. During the rugged trek the sheikh succumbs and, fearful of the mountain paths and the obstacles around the, the caravan refuses to continue and fulfill the dead man’s wish. That’s when Saïd (Said Aagli) and Ahmed (Ahmed Hammoud), two rogues traveling with the caravan, make the bold claim that they know how to get to Sijilmasa and will transport the sheikh’s body there.

Shot by cinematographer Mauro Hercend and snipped by editor Cristóbal Fernández, Mimosas is a 16mm miracle of a movie crammed with long shots of people, their accompanying mules, and automobiles moving through the mountainous landscapes, harkening to the vistas of Werner Herzog’s Aguirre, the Wrath of God (1972).

But it’s not just the misty winter landscapes that hold the frame here, the non-professional actors deliver striking and genuine performances, with faces that Laxe loves to linger on, telling much of his tale via profound portraiture.
