Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time

Our next podcast topic comes to us courtesy of Patreon subscriber Travis, who has given us a prompt as direct as it is merciless: name our picks for the worst films of the 1990s. It was in some ways a magnificent decade for terrible films, perhaps the last time when truly godawful boondoggles could still sneak their way through the studio system, while the rise of the American indie film scene encouraged people who’d never picked up a camera before to find their cinematic voice, with results that could be great, and could be… not. From the biggest to the littlest productions, we’ll savage them all, as we turn our attention to the 5 worst films of the ’90s.

In Worth Mentioning, we cover Mulan, Host and Tread.
