As I stated, the C+ Film for me is one that is just OK, still good but something that could have been better.
A C+ Film is one that sometimes barely crosses the line between Good and Bad into being good. Sometimes a performance or a story or even some special effects down to costumes can elevate a bad movie into being just good enough.
It's a thin line between Good and Bad, and a C+ Film manages (sometimes despite itself) to go into being, if not Good, at least tolerable.
Since I opened Rick's Café I have found 57 films that fit the criteria for a C+. Sometimes it is a film I would say is bad, but it provided enough entertainment value to make it worth renting, if nothing more than to waste a few hours if nothing else is on. This goes with my Philosophy on Film, that I should judge a film based on what it is trying to do, not whether I think it is 'great art'.
As I have said before, with some of these films, I know they aren't very good. However, while I'm not blind to their flaws and faults they somehow managed to work despite their own ineptness and squeezed by with a barely positive review.
With that, the Films that Are Barely Good Enough...
Next Time, the C- Films, movies that I think are bad, but if one rents them, it won't kill you.
Too Low? Too High? Are these Barely Good Films much better than I remember them, or are they pieces of junk that I missed the boat on? Let me know and I'll give a "Second Look" to a disputed film.
