My Favorite Roger: Seongyong Cho

Roger's review of "The Lonely Lady"

Why did I choose this review?

We all know Roger endured lots of bad movies while enjoying many good movies for more than 40 years. And he responded to bad movies with humor and common sense unless they were absolutely reprehensible. I sometimes re-read some of them because they are always fun to read.

His sarcastic review for "The Lonely Lady" (1983) is a prime example. The movie is so inane that it is not even bad enough to be categorized as "unintentionally hilarious". Roger shrewdly and succinctly points out how terrible it is, describing its most unbelievably awful aspects one by one. The review is so entertaining that I wanted to check out this legendary turkey. Yes, I did in last year thanks to YouTube and said to myself in the end: "Why!?.... Why!?"
