The Macademia Nuts
Episode 0064: A Whole Lot of Bad Viewing - We Watch So You Don’t Have To
Show Notes

From good to disturbing, the Nuts watched the worst (and best) so you don’t have to - unless you want to. Lindsey and David discuss the good movie that is also disturbing, Saltburn, and they convince Alec not to watch it. Alec and David don’t have to work very hard to convince Lindsey not to watch Rebel Moon, which some people out there actually enjoyed, apparently. Alec proposes his u-shaped model of movie badness and enjoyability. Other debates on bad media include college football bowls and this year’s Golden Globes.
