It is difficult to make a man miserable while he feels he is worthy of himself and claims kindred to the great God who has made him. ~Abraham Lincoln

Q:

Dear 100 Hour Board,

What is the worst movie that you love unironically and why?

-Inverse Insomniac

A:

Dear Inverse Insomniac,

So I take it you don't want to hear about bad movies that I like precisely because they are bad. That's kind of unfortunate because the Martin Gates version of The Wind and the Willows is incredible. 

I absolutely love Matilda with my whole heart. It's not really a movie that gets ridiculed that much so maybe this is a safe pick compared to, say, National Treasure. However, I know a movie critic who hates Matilda so I know it's at least a little bit controversial.

-Sheebs

A:

Dear you,

Both National Treasures and Pacific Rim.

~Anne, Certainly

A:

Dear friend,

Labyrinth will always have a special, mildly concerning place in my heart. Also, if you've never seen Rubin and Ed, that movie is a trip. I'm not sure if I like it unironically or not but my aunt told me before I watched it that it's a movie you never forget, and I'd sure say that.

Dear II, 

Kung Pow: Enter the Fist makes me laugh so hard I cry nearly every time I watch it...and that's a lot of times. 

-Petra 

A:

Dear Inverse,

Robin Williams' Popeye. So many people think it's so dumb, but I love it so much. SO MUCH.

-Olympus

A:

Hello Kitty,

Monte Carlo starring Selena Gomez.

Oh wait, I thought you said BEST movie.

-M.O.D.A.Q.

A:

Dear Inverse,

Mulan 2 gets such a bad rap (it literally has a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes) but I love it so much.  It has adventure. It has songs. It has most of the original cast. It's just amazing. 

I'm also slightly obsessed with Annabelle's Wish. I just have a lot of childhood memories associated with it so I watch it at least once on my own, once with my students, and then again with whoever I can convince to come and watch it with me every Christmas.

A:

Dear Victor,

National Treasure, yes, but also The Tourist and Jumanji (the new one). National Treasure because I love Riley Poole, and the other two just because I think they’re fun!

-Az

A:

Dear Inverse,

Tora! Tora! Tora! It's got a 55% on Rotten Tomatoes and everyone else in my history class who saw it fell asleep, but I loved every minute.

-El-ahrairah

A:

Inverse,

Dudley Do-Right.

Also possibly Star Wars. Let's be honest.

Dear,

The Mummy (The Mummy Returns too, but not the 3rd one).
