The Goonies- DVD- (2001)

A little while ago,my sister had a garage sale and this awesome DVD went unsold!She priced it at $1 and nobody bit,so she gave it to me :)My daughter and i stayed up late last night to watch it and it was quite the experience.Being able to relive this iconic film that made such a huge impression on me as a kid,with my kid  was truly priceless!She got a kick out of  “Data”  ,and thought that “Sloth” was the ugliest thing she had ever seen LOL!She also thought the mother of the two Fratelli brothers was a man up until the scene where one of them calls her mom 😀 The DVD has some cool extras like outtakes, and the full length “It’s Good Enough” Cindy Lauper video with all the WWF wrestlers in it. The artwork on the cover is killer as well!




80’s Flix -Twilight Zone The Movie

Halloween is just around the corner and what better way to celebrate it than with an 80’s Horror movie that really screwed my head up as a kid.Flashback to around 1985.I was 8 then and sitting in front of my T.V. with a giant bowl of Cinnamon Toast Crunch totally into this movie they were giving on HBO called Twilight Zone.Now I knew Twilight Zone…the black and white Twilight Zone…the one with all the warped  and  twisted logic defying short stories that would come on  the local channels late at night when everyone had gone to bed…but this version was  different .This Twilight Zone was in color and almost 2 hours long according to the TV guide and I wasn’t about to miss it for the world.I remember sitting in the dark on my living room floor carefully shoveling spoonfuls of cereal into my mouth, never once looking down at the bowl as I was too busy watching the movie while simultaneously keeping an eye on my mom who was a couple rooms away in the kitchen,just to reassure myself that I wasn’t alone.While movies like this totally screwed with my head growing up, they also helped expand my imagination and even influenced me to want to write my very own Horror movie script.Below are a few of the scenes from the film that stuck with me.That Lithgow scene was classic and the story with the kid who made his big sisters mouth disappear was awesomely disturbing!
