What is CinemAIDS?
We are a respectable blogging outlet dedicated to creating high quality content about incredibly shitty movies that suck.
Oh, bad movies, like Transformers 3 or Twilight. I saw those, those were horrible.
Not exactly. Bad movies are kind of complicated – some are beloved classics and some are just, well… bad. When choosing movies for CinemAIDS we have a two-stage vetting process:
1. No big Hollywood films. Sure, there’s plenty of “bad” blockbusters out there, but if there’s one thing Hollywood has proven is that you can, indeed, polish a turd. We want our turds raw and unpolished, thank you very much.
2. Nothing that was made to be intentionally bad. People who like bad movies are, to some degree, bad people. We laugh at the fact that a group of people poured their heart and soul into making a film and, yet, it was still horrible. With movies that are intentionally bad they are in on the joke and we are robbed of the schadenfreude that we so like to revel in. A bad movie just isn’t as enjoyable when it’s essentially winking at you the whole time.
Of course, bad movies are a fickle game and we can ignore the rules altogether when we see fit.
But if we know its bad, why review it?
Simple, some bad movies are just so bad they’re good. Ridiculous plotlines, bad acting, awful special effects – sometimes this can make for a great movie to just sit down and laugh at other peoples’ failures. Some, on the other hand, are so bad they’re, well… bad. Some bad movies are just boring. Movies that are both bad AND not fun to watch are the movies that get low scores here on CinemAIDS.
Bad movies are stupid, review good ones!
Eat my fuck.
Why haven’t you reviewed (insert movie title here) yet?
Because we either haven’t gotten to it yet or haven’t heard of it.
What is NetShitz?
It’s our cleverly titled column about movies available through the ever-so-popular Netflix streaming service.
You fucked up, I read a NetShitz article about a movie that isn’t even on Netflix streaming.
All movies under the NetShitz banner were, at one point, available on Netflix streaming. Netflix does not consult with us before removing things from their library and we simply don’t care enough to update our archives every time they do.
What the hell do all those badges mean?
There’s a full list with explanations here.
I want to write for CinemAIDS.
That isn’t a question, but I’ll answer it anyway. We aren’t actively looking for writers at this time, but if you’d like to be considered to write for us, or to write a guest piece, you can email 2 samples of your writing to email@example.com and we’ll
route it to our spam folders review it as soon as we’re able.
Why is this section called “Frequently Asked Questions” when none of these questions were ever asked even once, let alone enough times to consider them “Frequent”?
Go to hell.
I don’t like the title of your site. AIDS isn’t a laughing matter.
No, it turns out it is.
