The Joys of Mediocre Movies

Welcome to a website that revels in all that is cinematically average. While cool kids ironically watch terrible movies and chortle and cinephiles view overlooked films in dark basements, we scrutinise the most mediocre films the world has ever known.

This site was created when Kim, average-film aficionado, simply could not summon the brainpower to watch a blockbuster film but also didn’t want to waste her time on something that permanently rolled her eyes back. Thus, Mediocre Movies was formed. These films are most rated between 4-6 out of 10, or by the opinion of Kim.

Films are not sorted by genre (BORING) but rather by scenario or emotion. Enjoy.

Why watch mediocre movies?

Picture this, you’re folding the washing, it’s a Sunday morning and Picture this, you’re folding the washing, it’s a Sunday morning, and you’re feeling a little lazy. How do you get through mundane life admin tasks? You put on a mediocre movie in the background. Mediocre Movies was created to provide quality entertainment for tired minds.

Who is this website for?

Per question one, if you’re feeling lazy and can’t decide what to choose on Netflix, or don’t want a film that requires too much thinking, this website is for you. Not to mention, mediocre films can be really fun and offer a great night with friends… or maybe even a date?

How do you decide what’s mediocre?

These films are mostly rated between 4-6 out of 10 on Metacritic, however I do have some opinions on films that are above or below that range. Also, if I can leave the room for 5 minutes, be distracted and still understand what’s going on, it’s probably mediocre.

Why are the films sorted by mood?

Have you ever been asked the question – what movie do you feel like watching? My case in point. Movies aren’t just a genre, they are an emotion. You watch movies cos your sad, cos you want to feel happy, cos you don’t give a shit and just want to mindlessly watch something. These are all valid emotions.
