|01.09.08||Weird Wednesday|| Jon Gries was here again. The Napoleon Dynamite feast and Real Genius Quote-along were not quite my bag and charging 5 bucks for WW was also pretty crap so I wasn't gonna go but Jarrette pulled the whole leaving town thing and basically guilted me into it.|
Jon Gries was fun (again). The erotic art and the guy from Whole Shootin Match were my favorite parts of the movie (again). It was genuinely good to say hi to all the Alamoans whom I haven't seen for like a month. And I got to find out about a trailerthon that seems to have just popped up out of nowhere this weekend. So I guess it was worth going.
ha ha. I bet that reads SO negative. It was a good time for real. I swear.
|04.26.07||Terror Thursday|| Zack was really excited for this one. I guess it's a movie that if you see at the right age will stick with you forever. I missed the boat on it though so this was my first time.|
It's really cheap, starring familiar 80s faces and made by Charles Band's crew. Mary Woronov and Gerrit Graham play the mom and dad who are into swinging though, which may be the most sexuality ever portrayed in a Band production. All of the art in the house was awesome... pop=type paintings of naked women in various fetish lingerie, mostly kneeling or on all fours. Great stuff.
The monster is funny looking. I don't know why I thought this (maybe the trailer?) but I thought this movie would be much more like a Harry & the Hendersons type vibe where the family's trying to learn to live with the monster like he's Alf, but instead there's a lot more people-eating than I expected, so I guess I'd call it a horror and not a comedy but it's pretty much right on that line.
Eh, I dunno. I found it fun but nothing too special. I guess I'm too old.
