best trash movies of 2018

To quote the poet Oscar the Grouch, “Oh, I love trash.” There’s a soft-spot in my heart for trash movies. The trashier the better. I’m not talking about the worst movies of the year. Nor am I talking about movies that are so bad they’re good. Instead, I’m referring to a special type of a film – one that is perfectly content to be, well, garbage. Movies with little-to-no ambition that aren’t trying to do…anything. Except present you with cheap, cheesy, trashy spectacle. These are the type of movies destined to play on fuzzy TVs in cheap motel rooms. The type of films you put on in the background as you sit in a one-bedroom apartment, guzzling cheap gin and eating microwave pizza. The motion pictures you wake up to at 3 a.m., blurry-eyed, cotton-mouthed, and not sure where the hell you are. These are the best trash movies of 2018.

Gotti Honest Trailer

There have been some truly great mob movies over the years like The Godfather, GoodFellas, Casino, A Bronx Tale, and Road to Perdition. But we’re here to talk about a movie that will remind you how difficult it is to make a truly great movie about the mafia without coming off like a tired cliche full of comically Italian names, ludicrous accents, and an Olive Garden menu.

Gotti just might be the worst movie of the year, which is saying something when movies like Show Dogs and Hurricane Heist also came out this year. But at least those movies know exactly what they are. Meanwhile, John Travolta comes through with flying colors in all the wrong ways, delivering a performance that can best be described as a man who fell into a Martin Scorsese spoof but takes it extremely seriously. See the Gotti Honest Trailer to see what we’re dealing with here. Read More »

gotti rotten tomatoes user reviews

Following a dismal critical reception and an even more dismal box office performance, Gotti has released a new ad getting to the alleged heart of the problem: the critics. The bizarre ad for John Travolta’s mob movie attacks the critics that tore down Gotti while boasting about the rave “user” reviews on Rotten Tomatoes. But there’s something fishy about those Gotti Rotten Tomatoes user reviews that the marketing is so proud of.

MoviePass‘s business strategy continues to confound all of us. The ticket-buying service’s sustainability has always been in question since it dropped its prices to the popular $10 a month, but MoviePass was not content to simply disrupt the moviegoing industry. It had to get behind the scenes as well. Cue the perplexing venture into distribution, of which MoviePass has seen some success and some failures. And the one big, public failure with the meager box office returns of Gotti, in particular, maybe even worse for MoviePass than we realized.
