Quentin Tarantino once famously stated "When people ask me if I went to film school, I say 'No, I went to films'". And since the near extinction of the drive-in and inner city grindhouse, those Rite Aid, Wal-Mart and Best Buy DVD dump bins have become the go-to place for those eager to experiment with off-center cinema, ... or at least, for a buck or two, take a flyer on something (major studio or independent) which one may not have otherwise been willing to shell out $20 to see on the big screen, ... especially as each month Netflix deletes more titles from it's queue. Not fans of awards season (intentional or not, they tend to divide films into "important" and "unimportant") we pay tribute to films not necessarily RELEASED in 2016, but which we, through the magic of the cheapie bin, first VIEWED in 2016. Call it an awards show for movies many don't give a damn about. With categories ranging from "Best Remake / Reboot" to "Favorite Film Which the Rest of the World Absolutely Hated", to "Best Cheapie Bin Film of The Year" and more, we just may upend and replace the Globes, Oscars and Razzies.
