The Badland ladies survived the death curse of Friday the 13th and are back with their strong feelings about the best and worst movies they watched last year. If this leaves you with strong feelings, send us a letter: badlandgirls at gmail dot com. Or, you can leave a comment here or on iTunes. Number of "fucks" in this episode: 26.
Spoiler alert for the following films:
Myth of the American Sleepover
The Adjustment Bureau
Corrections: Rhea is not too fat for TV; she's just too good for that shit. She also loves to eat and gives no fucks to society’s weight standards for women (DONUTS FOREVER!). The Nikki Blonsky Lifetime movie is called Queen-Sized. The Downton Abbey tweet that Destiny failed to quote properly (and incorrectly connect to the magic that is The Wire) was from the very hilarious comic/tv writer Morgan Murphy and read, "Downton Abbey makes white nerds tweet like Kanye." Everyone should follow her. The writer/director/co-star of Bellflower is named Evan Glodell. This dude's name is seriously Channing Tatum. The "Mary Moon" song Destiny mentioned from the Dumb and Dumber soundtrack is actually called "New Age Girl" and is by the band Deadeye Dick. She is shocked she still remembers most of the lyrics. John Hawkes played the cult leader in Martha Marcy May Marlene and was also in Winter's Bone.
