If you’ve been listening to the Popcorn Dialogues podcasts, you know that if Lani and I really don’t like a movie, at some point we’ll say, “Lord, it wasn’t good,” and then go off into hysterical laughter. We’re quoting this Bloom County cartoon by the genius Berkeley Breathed featuring everybody’s favorite flightless seabird, Opus (click on the strip to enlarge): We’ve had this experience (ranting about something that let us down until we go over the edge and must return to the bottom line: it really stunk) a lot on PopD, enough that the whole “Lord, it wasn’t good” is becoming a trope. So we’ve decided that, just as many institutions have a Seal of Approval, we’re going to have a Penguin of Disapproval: Okay, the image needs work and we’ll fix it, but I’m thinking it will be good for things beyond Ninotchka, Barefoot in the Park, and The Holiday. Like the bowdlerized version of Huckleberry Finn. And the attempts to repeal health care. And jeggings. Really, I’m wondering how we ever got along without it. The Penguin of Disapproval. Watch for it on a huge mistake near you.
