Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time

In hardly any time at all, we’re going to be getting DC’s The Suicide Squad, a reboot-sequel that surely somebody anywhere in the whole world was clamoring for. In the meantime, this story of a bunch of colorful weirdoes played by a star-studded cast has us thinking of all the other times that movies have given us a chance to gawk at all our favorite actors gathered in one place, or just to be suitably bowled over by the sheer quantity of acting talent. We’re taking a look at our Top 5 ensembles in film history, that is to say, from the messy sprawl of Altman to the all-hands-on-deck cross-promotion of the MCU.

In Worth Mentioning we cover Jungle Cruise, The Craft: Legacy and The Saragossa Manuscript thanks to Patreon, Gavin!
