Topic: Retro Rewatch Pleasant Discoveries
Sorry to borrow the popular "retro rewatch" shtick but it's appropriate.
One of my favorite things about going back and watching old horror flicks I haven't seen for years is spotting someone who's gone on to bigger and better things since. There are the givens; Holly Hunter and Jason Alexander in The Burning, Kevin Bacon in Friday the 13th, Jennifer Anniston in that damn Leprechaun movie. But despite it being something we all experience going back and watching older movies, I can't recall there ever actually being a thread dedicated to such pleasant discoveries.
"But Lon, " you say. "Why do you bring this up, now? It's Friday night, why aren't you out there making some lucky lady's night?" Why, I'm glad you asked.
I just finished watching The Hidden. Cool flick, but I hadn't seen it since it first hit VHS way back in '88. So I'm watching it, and all of a sudden, who pops up in a bit role? Why, it's none other than DANNY TREJO, given a whole two seconds of screen time before promptly being blown away. The second I saw him I literally said aloud, "Fuckin' cool!"
At any rate, I thought it'd be a cool idea for a new sticky thread (hint, hint, Meh/mods) -- pleasant discoveries you've made rewatching older flicks you haven't seen for a while. Please feel free to share.
