I generally don’t want to be negative when it comes to the MS-QOTD, but this weekend I made the foolish decision to watch Superhero Movie, a film whose comedy was driven by repeating scenes from 2000s cape and tights flicks verbatim.  It also has Tracy Morgan as Professor X, because weird quasi-racism is also a staple of that era.  I was saddened to find that it also had input from David Zucker of Zucker/Abrahams/Zucker fame, the folks behind Airplane, The Naked Gun, and the sublime Kentucky Fried Movie, leading to today’s stultified query…

The MS-QOTD (pronounced, as always, “misquoted”) will still always have Top Secret!, asking: What was the last TERRIBLE movie you saw?

Once upon a time, there was a young nerd from the Midwest, who loved Matter-Eater Lad and the McKenzie Brothers... If pop culture were a maze, Matthew would be the Minotaur at its center. Were it a mall, he'd be the Food Court. Were it a parking lot, he’d be the distant Cart Corral where the weird kids gather to smoke, but that’s not important right now... Matthew enjoys body surfing (so long as the bodies are fresh), writing in the third person, and dark-eyed women. Amongst his weaponry are such diverse elements as: Fear! Surprise! Ruthless efficiency! An almost fanatical devotion to pop culture! And a nice red uniform.

    A couple months back, I streamed something with Bruce Willis and Frank Grillo called “Cosmic Sin.” That turned out to be a title applicable to the production of the movie.

    From “cinema art” standpoint, Snake and Crane arts of Shaolin. A 70’s Jackie Chan movie which may not be high art, but otherwise its glorious and way more entertaining than most of what came out on streaming services this year.
