Ah, movie details. We all have a favorite film or two and we just love sharing with our friends all the details hidden throughout them, to show off that we’re real fans. But what about less-than-hidden, in-your-face, really-really-bad movie details?
Well, there’s an entire Reddit community that’s dedicated to sharing those—the worst and crappiest movie details ever. And it’s all for the sake of having a laugh.
These redditors are great at using irony and there’s so much sarcasm and humor on the subreddit, it’s hard to stay afloat sometimes. Scroll down for the crappiest movie details and Bored Panda's interview with one of the subreddit's moderators, upvote the best (worst?) posts, and let us know if you have any similar details to share about your fave films, Pandas.

Redditor Merari01, one of the subreddit's moderators, told Bored Panda that their top mod "saw an opening in the market" and started up the community in 2017.
"People on reddit love making silly jokes and puns. There's lots of in-jokes and running gags and that makes a good breeding ground for playfully memeing in the context of movies," sub mod Merari01 explained why the sub is as successful as it is. They referenced this post as a great example of the community's playfulness.
The mod also revealed that plenty of internet users get mixed up "all the time," don't notice the sarcasm, and think that the posts on the sub are 100% serious. "It's part of the fun," they said.

Crappy movie details are one thing, but crappy movies are something altogether different. So, what makes a bad movie, well, bad?
Movies that perform well at the box office, get roaring reviews from critics, and top IMDb lists for the ‘Top 10 [Insert Favorite Genre] Movies of the Year’ don’t automatically make them good. Successful? Sure. Popular? Definitely! Good? It depends.

A small budget and an overly ambitious narrative can wreck a movie even if the director’s intentions were good. Newsweek points out the obvious fact that bad movies have terrible acting. Whether its newbie actors paying their dues or professional stars off their game during a new project, stilted and cringeworthy acting won’t win any praises from the crowd.
Unless they’re going for a ‘so bad it’s good’ sorta vibe. In fact, we tend to love bad movies like ‘The Room’ and ‘Sharknado’ because they make us feel just like film critics.
“These films are humorous because they are incredulously awful and you can’t believe that anyone could produce something that bad and think it’s OK. The other thing is it gives you a sense of superiority and a sense of mastery and competence because if you can recognize why it’s bad, you have expertise in this area of film consumption. It makes you feel like an expert film critic,” Salford senior lecturer in psychology Dr. Adam Galpin told New Statesman.
