03.06.06Alamo Downtown so after Soul Cinema and Music Monday, the Alamo had a free midnight screening of Kid n' Play's House Party. What made it cool was that, for various scheduling serendipities, Kevin Smith showed up to intro and watch it with us. Now, I am not a huge fan of most of Smith's movies, I tend not to like Smith's fans at all, but always begrudgingly enjoy Smith himself just because he's so self-deprecating and candid. he did a surprisingly length 45 minutes of Q&A on all sorts of subjects (, upcoming projects, TV appearances, current status of all of his projects, his thoughts on My Name is Earl, etc.), some even including House Party. Then he sat down and we watched the movie.

What to say about this early 90s hip hop high school comedy? Well it's rated R which is awesome... Robin Harris and John Witherspoon, Martin Lawrence back before he had his TV show, good stuff. the new jack swing, high-top fades and sculpted hairdos, and coordinated dance movies? not so hot. It was still funny though... in a very peculiar way. good times all around.
