Bad Movie Night has been RESCHEDULED to Friday, February 22 due to the storm.

 

Movies start at 8 PM, doors open at 7 PM, please arrive between 7 and 8.

 

8 PM - Iron Sky

This is a Finnish indie movie (English dialog) made with crowdsourcing.  It's about Nazis.  From the moon.  If you haven't heard of it, watch the trailer:

10 PM - Barbarella

This is an (in)famously bizarre 1968 movie featuring Jane Fonda, a shag carpeted spaceship, strong (but not explicit) sexual themes, and acres of plexiglass.  It's not so much "bad", more like "based on a French comic in the days when LSD was young".  The original trailer isn't entirely representative, because they just emphasized the sexy bits, but it's funny how they did trailers back then:

WHAT TO BRING

Drinks or snacks are appreciated but not required.  I'll have plates, cups, and soda.

    Thanks Ian for hosting a really fun night with lots of laughs! Barbarella was a classically 'bad' film!! Looking forward to the next installment!!

    It was a *great* evening, from start to finish. The movies were funny enough by themselves-- but adding to it the audience reactions really pushed it over the top! I can't remember the last time I laughed as hard...! I'm SO looking forward to the next event. :)

    Hilarious! I've seen "Barbarella" before but had forgotten what fun it could be, seeing all those silly costumes and hearing the weird dialogue.

      I haven't laughed-to-tears like that in a long time!

    Iron Sky was amazing fun, well made satire with a coherent plot and stellar effects, Barberella....not so much, but the audience reactions were the stuff of legend.

    Very unfortuntately something just came up that will prevent me from availing myself of this night of cultural sophistication...

    Just "thirding" Rachel's comment. Thanks, Ian, and I look forward to another gathering of the intelligentsia to view two more top-level films...so above the grasp of the masses that they actually think they're bad movies!...on February 22nd.

    Just seconding Rachel's comment. Thanks Ian!

    ....just wanted to say thanks for postponing the date, Ian. For the record, I would've trekked out through the storm anyway-- though I'm glad I don't have to. See ya on the 22nd. :)

    Iron Sky looks nuts and Barbarella is a classic. Can't wait!

    I just watched the trailer for Barbarella....'recommended for mature audiences'....LOL, the trailer itself is a hoot! Kudos to whomever came up with all those funky space costumes. Looking forward to it. Anyone concerned about the impending storm?

    Hm. I have a good feeling I'm going to like how bad these two are. ^_^ I came in halfway through JCVH and I enjoyed the second half I saw. But Tromeo and Juliet left me almost painfully confused. o_O XD

  • Sue

    :-) Looking forward to it!

    Well I guess it wouldn't actually get a PG-13 rating due to "mature themes" but they don't actually show anything.

    PG-13? I was 21 in 1968. Standards were different -- not PG-13 then. I like Barbarella.
