My dad’s favorite pastime is mocking things. He loves conspiracy documentaries and bad movies because they give him a chance to make fun of ridiculously low-hanging fruit without actually insulting anyone… it’s a great father-son bonding activity, though I’m a little nicer than he is.

Weirdly, though, he hates movies like “Sharknado” because they’re intentionally shitty. He only likes targets that don’t realize how lousy they are - self-aware crappiness threatens his fragile sense of superiority.
