After writing my piece on the Top 10 Things Wrong with Mainstream Philippine Cinema, I gleaned from most of the comments posted that I need not have limited my article to movies from the Philippines since, apparently, the world is full of stupid, crappy movies. Which begs the following questions: why is the world full of stupid, crappy movies? If they are so stupid and crappy in the first place, why do they keep getting made? Why do people keep watching them? By patronizing stupid and crappy movies, are people, therefore, stupid and crappy by extension?
Perfectly valid questions of course, all of which will not be answered by this post. Instead, I propose that we stop fighting the tidal wave of general crappiness that is bound to wash over us, and just learn to enjoy the ride. In preparation for such an event, here are five ways we can enjoy ourselves at the movies even if the movie is something we probably shouldn't watch in the first place.
