Writer, film maker and obvious film lover Mark Malkoff has done something remarkable: he challenged his ass muscles and streaming capacity of Netflix with a 30-day marathon.
So how many movies did he watch? Did his marriage survive? Did he regain muscle function in his assy-bits?
252. Two hundred and fifty-fucking-two movies. In thirty days. A total of 404.25 hours of classics, slashers, bombs, pop culture hits, blockbusters and major studio misses. And assuming there are far more terrible movies out in the world than greats, and absolutely more terrible films on Netflix streaming than their are hits, it’s safe to say Malkoff reached an apex of bad movie watching that I applaud and respect deeply.
Some days he just didn’t leave his apartment. I mean, watching an average of 13hrs a day kind of means you just permanently mold yourself to your couch, right? And when on the go, he would watch on his phone or iPad. It’s a nightmare for some. A dream for others. Also a great weight gain tool Malkoff notes of the 6lbs he gained.
Small price to pay for greatness. Though I’m sure the celebrity cameos helped soften the blow.
So what did he watch? Some greats:
harold and Maude
Cave of Forgotten Dreams
Battleship Potemkin (which he misnames, oddly…)
Some fun ones:
People vs George Lucas
Little Shop of Horrors
Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid
Planet of the Apes
Anvil! The Story of Anvil
And some epically bad ones:
Troll 2 (which may be the best of the bad)
Saw: The Final Chapter
Starship Troopers (I’ll get flack for marking this as bad by some)
Garbage Pail Kids Movie
Abbott and Costello Meet the Mummy
Yeah. So. Awesome. Good on ya, brosef. For his full list of movies, check out his site and read about his other adventures in testing patience.
