New Yorkers, I got your Friday night right here

LAZF friends and presenters I Love Bad Movies are hosting a screening in NYC.  If you’re in the neighborhood, swing by!

“I Love Bad Movies is teaming up with The Flop House podcast for another Bad Movie Night!  This Friday, Jan. 20th at 8pm at 92YTribeca, we’ll be screening 12 Rounds, a “stupid as a bag of hammers” action movie from the director of Die Hard 2, starring John Cena a.k.a. that wrestler guy who sometimes acts but isn’t The Rock.  Fans of HBO’s The Wire will enjoy seeing Aiden Gillen (a.k.a. Baltimore politician Tommy Carcetti) as the villain, an Irish arms dealer jazzily named Miles Jackson, who spends the movie slipping in and out of his own native accent.

Pre-show entertainment from Matt and Kseniya will include a short presentation on the many cinematic sins committed by the cast of The Wire, and a trivia round with questions (many of them easily guessable!) about bad movies, The Flop House podcast, and the oeuvre of bad-movie patron saint Lou Gossett Jr.  Prizes include copies I Love Bad Movies #1 through #4, treasured VHS tapes, and other priceless and/or valueless junk.

During the movie, you’ll hear running commentary and jokes from The Flop House (“Mr. Handsome Nerd” Stuart Wellington and Daily Show writers Dan McCoy and Elliott Kalan).  Then we’ll pause for a special halftime segment in which your hosts discuss whether or not this movie could have made any less sense so far.
Those who came to our first Bad Movie Night screening of the doubly troubled Twin Sitters know that this will be a night of riotous laughter, mass guffawing, and tear-streaked smiles.  This event is a Time Out New York Critics’ Pick and will likely sell out, so get your 12 Rounds tickets now!

We can’t make it in person, but we are queueing the DVD.
