Hey everybody, Alex here today. This week for Fund it Friday, I’d like to present you with something I’ve been enjoying for months. Good Bad Flicks is a YouTube series where creator Cecil shares his favorite obscure movies with the world.
If you’ve ever found yourself looking at the cover of some weird 80s b-movie, wondering if it is any good, Cecil has your back. If you’ve ever wondered why nobody ever talks about how awesome that terrible cheesy movie is, well Cecil might have you covered. Cecil loves him some “good bad flicks” and loves talking about them.
Cecil’s bread and butter is his enthusiasm for these so bad they are good movies. As a fan of these cheesy 80s horror movies, he offers a bit of a different take and exposure for a lot of films. Now, be forewarned that his “Exploring…” series videos are not strictly reviews. The videos frequently give away large plot points while he discusses why he loves the movie. In addition to why he loves a movie, he also gives insight into the production side of the movie. These videos are a great piece for any movie you are a fan of.
In more recent times, he has moved to doing this work full time. As such, he has gone beyond his Exploring series and has started reviewing more recent films, including those in theaters. Don’t worry, he is much more selective in what he says in his reviews on movies still in theaters. For these he avoids spoilers, but still offers his enthusiastic take on these movies.
Why and What do I Get?
So, why he is doing a Patreon and what do you get? Now, all of his videos are all free on YouTube and you don’t have to pay a dime. But I do enjoy supporting content that I like. In some cases, I feel the ad revenue from my watch is fair. In other cases, I like to support a little more. I think there are people who would feel the same about this content, so I’d like more people to see it.
What is he offering? He offers some pretty standard perks. First, there is an availability to see videos early and to see information on what he is working on early. Another is even getting to ask some questions in the Q&A videos. Also, he has some interesting goals like getting to the level where he will riff a full movie for his fans.
Once again, you don’t have to support him to watch his videos. Check out Good Bad Flicks and if you feel it is worth it, feel free to support him at a level that reflects your enjoyment.
