09.29.07Alamo South Lamar So... I remember loving this as a child but I haven't seen it in so long that literally the only memory left is two robots fighting and a windy garden. Thanks to the Alamo's Saturday Morning Kid's Club free screening, I saw it again for the first time in like 20 years.

It's... really out there. It kinda explains a lot because I remember a small handful of "children's" films back then that were really twisted and strange and out there. I mean the ending where they go down into hell and it's all fire and brimstone and stuff then it's a mirrored hallway with an angel-esque girl flying around... did they die? did they take a road trip to hell and heaven? Either way, what a downer!!! The awesome Slim Pickens robot (made in Houston!) dies and Maximilian Schell becomes one with his robot (named Maximilian) and just all sorts of craziness going on I couldn't believe it. What's this movie's deal?

So yeah... pretty big surprise to see how crazy this movie gets. I kinda remembered parts all throughout but I must've repressed or closed my eyes or something for the ending. No clue.

Side Note, after the movie and the latest meeting of Gastronauts, Fango writer Matt Kiernan asked us to help him out with Halloween (the movie) trivia questions for the AMC website. Now, I didn't admit this or anything but I'm not a huge fan of the original Halloween, much less the 7 sequels and remake. I do remember the third one being good but having nothing to do with Michael Myers and... that's about it. I'm not even sure I saw 4, 5, and/or 6. So let me tell you... talk about humbling experiences. Try being in on a conversation between Matt Kiernan, Scott Weinberg and Zack Carlson talking Halloween trivia. Sweet beautiful baby jesus.
