Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time

Some movies become big, beloved successes right off the bat, celebrated by one and all. Some movies need to fight for it: they’re overlooked, undervalued, and just plain dismissed, treasured only by a tiny audience biding the day that might never come when the object of their affection finally gets its moment in the sun. For this episode, we’re celebrating our favorite examples of these wonderful, idiosyncratic little gems, with our picks for the best cult movies of all time, no matter how big or small the cult.

In Worth Mentioning we cover: Da 5 Bloods, You Should Have Left and The King of Staten Island.
