Discovering good movies, one bad movie at a time

There are some movies that are so great that you make them treasured friends, revisiting them every now and then to appreciate once again how special they are. There are some movies that you obsessively watch over and over again, trying to absorb them right into your soul. And then there are the movies so great that you simply can’t go back: one time is all the more you dare risk watching them – maybe to preserve the surprise, maybe to avoid the heartache, or for any other reason that one time simply had to be enough. We’re devoting a whole episode to these last films, the ones that we love so much that there’s no chance in hell of our ever revisiting them.

In Worth Mentioning, we cover Palm Springs and Bedevil.
