So Bad It's Good: Watch 'Con Air' With MoPOP + Special Guest Clint Worthington!

So Bad It's Good - Movies at MoPOP - Con Air

Movies you love to hate: everybody’s got ‘em. They’re the cinematic junk food that feeds our souls, tickles our funny bone, and rolls our eyes. That’s why they’re the focus of our current film series: So Bad It’s Good.

Hosted by MoPOP’s very own Kasi Gaarenstroom, the all-virtual series takes place every second Saturday of the month at 6 p.m. PST, with each screening featuring a special guest who will fight for the legitimacy of their favorite movie flop. Audience participation is highly encouraged—attendees can sound off in the chat and heckle (or praise) the current movie!

So grab some popcorn, fire up the ol’ internet, and get ready to cringe on February 13, 2021 as we celebrate Con Air, in which Nicolas Cage, doing his Nicolest Cagiest, stars as Cameron Poe, a former convict traveling home on — you guessed it — a flight full of convicts. Some, like Poe, are being transported home, and others are being transferred to a supermax prison for their heinous deeds. This should be one turbulent flight..

Our special guest for Saturday's Con Air watchalong is Clint Worthingtonfounder and editor-in-chief of The Spool, as well as one of the founders of the website/podcast Alcohollywood. He is also a Senior Writer at Consequence of Sound, as well as the co-host/producer of the Travolta/Cage podcast with Nathan Rabin. You can find Clint's freelance work at Vulture, IndieWire, UPROXX, Syfy Wire,, The Takeout, and Crooked Marquee.
