Simon Mayo's theory that the films that really, really, really upset Mark Kermode are those that aren't just bad, but are also morally reprehensible. A film can be "just awful", such as - say - Three And Out, but it won't trigger a Kermodian rant (and indeed, sometimes listeners are disappointed that what they had expected to be a thorough kicking for complete drivel turns out to be a sigh and a shrug of a review). It has to be coupled with an approach to its characters, subject and theme that Mark finds appalling to get Mark's full-on rage. Examples include not only the famous Entourage rage, but the "morally offensive" Green Street, the "Morally repugnant" Rambo and Wolves At The Door, the "morally bankrupt" Sex And The City and The Last Kiss, which left him "morally angry".
