“What starts off as a sarcastic exercise in “Do I really have to?” becomes a fascinating journey through a legendary year of cinema. Using her distinct grasp of diction and pop culture references, Hyland has gifted us with a must-read title for anyone who has ever been curious about these long forgotten films. While I question her taste in film and her love for Speed Racer, I cannot wait to read Part 2!”

“It has been brought to my attention that I have poor taste in film. Bad taste, really. Bad.”

Starting here with the first Awards, presented in 1929, B-movie fanatic Rachel Hyland attempts to cleanse her cinematic palate by studying the Good and eschewing the So Bad It’s Good.
All she wants to do is join the cinematic intelligentsia. The cintelligentsia. Is that really so hard? Well, the 1929 nominees are all silent films, so what do you think?
