My Bad Film Club Experience

Years after discovering Bad Film Club, I just went to my very first screening. I’m never able to attend because of work commitments; this time catches me on a long weekend off.

The film under scrutiny was Speed 2: Cruise Control.

I wasn’t too sure what to expect but soon enough, sweets were passed around as the film commenced.

The hosts, Nicko and Joe, run a live commentary throughout which adds an extra layer (shall we say) to the experience. It certainly made a tedious movie bearable especially when loads of ridiculous stuff was pointed out. Literally. They use laser pointers.

It made for a fun night and I’ll be back as soon as I’m able to.

Venue: Chapter Arts, Cardiff
