Nordic reviews the cinema world’s finest hidden gems

With nationwide quarantines in place, a lot of people have more free time than they know what to do with, leading to the growth of streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and Disney+. While most people tend to flock toward the highest-rated movies, the world’s cinematic greats aren’t the only movies that can entertain us. There are good movies, there are bad movies and then there are movies with qualities so astonishingly low that you can’t help but laugh at the fact that someone agreed to pay to produce what you’re watching.

However, they still make for a truly underrated way to spend an evening at home.
