Description - Rotten Movies We Love: Cult Classics, Underrated Gems, and Films So Bad They're Good by The Editors of Rotten Tomatoes
HOOK. WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER. VALLEY OF THE DOLLS. There are some movies that defy traditional standards -- films panned by critics that go on to become beloved classics and cult phenoms anyway.In ROTTEN MOVIES WE LOVE, the editors at Rotten Tomatoes - the leading online aggregator of movie and TV show reviews -- explore and celebrate these underrated films. The book is comprised of short write-ups on "rotten" movies, focusing on why we love them, why they scored so low on RT's infamous Tomatometer, fun stories about their making, and how they have became pop-culture touchstones. The book is broken into seven categories that hint at the reasoning found within - People's Champs, Cult Leaders, Sequels Worth a Second Look and so on - and will also feature 15 essays by critics from Rolling Stone, Vanity Fair, The New Yorker and more, each about a rotten movie that they love. Punctuated with black-and-white film stills and punchy two-colour illustrations, the book is a fun romp through quirky, unusual film history.Featured films include:Cherry 2000Die Hard with a VengeanceBad BoysValley of the DollsFirst Wives ClubSpace JamThe WizThe Greatest ShowmanBurlesqueThe HolidayHocus PocusXanadu
