I don't always love compilation zines, and I don't often read zines by cisgender men, but I do love romantic comedies, so chances were 2 to 1 against my being a fan of I Love Bad Movies: Love, Sex, & Friendship. Since I'm writing about it, you can guess that I did, in fact, become enamored of the zine.
I think all of the contributors except co-editor Kseniya Yarosh are dudes, but they are good about noting sexism and homophobia in the movies they review. Uneven writing quality is one of the reasons I don't always love compilation zines, but the writing in ILBM is all good. The topic is also great--I mean who doesn't love bad movies?
Backstory: I agreed to trade zines with Matt & Kseniya, organizers of the Brooklyn Zine Fest after I bailed on co-leading a zine workshop with them. I was incredibly grateful that they didn't hate me, and I'm sure the event went better without my help anyway.
