Iggy is amazing. He is just as energetic as he was 35 years ago. That gig at the Fox was a few days before his 60th birthday,and he dove off of the stage several times during the show! He is a freak of nature. You get the feeling watching him that he is a man posessed,he isn't putting on an act. As he likes to say.......He's Iggy Fucking Pop! :mrgreen:

You'll think a bodybuilder can act.

Arnie and *sigh* Jamie Lee Curtis have a great on-screen chemestry in this. Humour is not overdone, and lots of fun action sequences.
Bill Paxton plays his heart out as a cowardly, slimeball. "I have a small dick! It's pathetic! Please don't shoot me!"

Anyone remember him as "Chet" in "Weird Science"? Was that a kick ass role or what? I think I've seen that film in the triple digits.

I'm sure you look great in this shirt, Aspy. But what will your daughter say ? My kids don't watch Sesame Street. It's not cool anymore.

But as long as parents like it. Wrong world, isn't it ?

My Daughter actually asked if we could share said sweatshirt! Haha. She still likes Sesame Street and The Muppets, so I'm ok for a little while yet thankfully! :D
I think it is a wrong world....everyone should love the wonder that is the original Sesame Street! 8)

Generally, I am not at all fond of horror comedies. But the special make-up effects are so darn good, this is one of the 3 or 4 exceptions. I even like Roddy McDowall in it!

that's a great movie, lamarr.

i viddied a clockwork orange earlier today.haven't watched it in some time....ah, the young malcolm.....makes you want to cheer on alex. many people were upset when the original (british) ending was not included in the film, but it's great. even after i finally read the original (in of all places, rolling stone) ending, which i enjoyed, i still liked the way kubrick kept alex as unrepentant and (except for some brain salad surgery) essentially unchanged. "oh yes, i was cured alright" :wink: had watched 2001 just the other night, and saw my copy of dr. strangelove on the bookshelf---might make this a kubrick weekend. :mrgreen:

Quote:
The first few seasons have just been released and come with, of all things, a warning.

"These early Sesame Street episodes are intended for grownups and may not suit the needs of today's preschool child," the warning reads.

"Sesame was created in the '60s, and it was a bit edgier, if you will," said Sherrie Rollins Westin, executive vice president of Sesame Workshop.


:P

People are way too damned sensitive these days. We are raising our children to be a nation of nincompoops who think that rubber will cut them.

Mike Nelson of Mystery Science Theater 3000 has a very funny commentary for this over at RiffTrax.com. Basically, you can rent a video file with the "riff" attached to the film for a short period at a price of $3.99, but I suggest getting Legend Films' DVD. That way, you own the riff and a fantastic print of the film, and you don't have to watch the colorized version of the film for the commentary, because a black and white version is also included. :)

I finally watched 'Plan 9 From Outer Space' for the first time today. I kept falling asleep but I made sure to take the whole movie in. (It took 3 tries.) There are some great moments in there, for sure. I especially liked the conversation between the two military guys after firing on the spaceships.
