Az, HQ, Lon
Fairly quiet conversation on this one. Lon was really getting annoyed with the T.C. character, while HQ and I just wished Sasha would just stop screaming. We found some flaws in the film.
Riki-O: Story of Ricky:
Az, Lon, Garden, HQ (for a while)
HQ cut out early since this "wasn't her type of thing." Feature the un-killable Riki, a freaky assistant warden, a monster warden, and the most severely dysfunctional child ever as the warden's son. Add in a heroin growing operation, and 4 mutants heads of the gangs in the prison. Throw in fights where people get punched through, a guy strangles someone with his own intestines (I mean the guy cuts open his own stomach, pulls out his intestines, and the strangles the other guy). Crazy action and crazy fun.
The Convent (2000):
Garden riding solo
"I watched The Convent by myself, the movie was boring at some points, quirky at others and I am glad I saw it but wouldn't watch it again."
Garden again going solo
"Psycho 3, by myself, too, loved it. The back story on Norman Bates is something that was best left unfilled in, but that they did it, made for a fun horror story. I miss Anthony Perkins."
Az, Golmen, Garden, HQ (for the beginning), Lon (for the ending)
The movie has a guy dancing on stage wearing a gigantic owl-head mask. Flashback to Hausu resulted. There's even a cat. Anyway, I was only ½ watching it, so I'm going by the others' remarks. They were impressed how the dance/acting troupe really stuck together once the killing started- "Wow, they really stick together." Discussion on appropriate giant owl-head killer precautions were discussed. Also very impressed with the ensemble towards the end of the film, lol. Golem remarked that at the end the killer lost his cool and was screaming like a baby, which was admittedly better than screaming like a banshee or turning into a pile of bananas.
Az, SheSaid, (Golem didn't watch but chimed in)
Started off complaining about inflation (shrimp was $3/lb back then!). We decided that shrimp are powerful. Commented on the quality of the fight scene. Hint- not so good. SheSaid lamented that they can't buy beer in grocery stores in Canada, so he has a buddy bring up Old English 40s so he can hang on the steps sipping the OE. I called him gangsta, and asked if the moose also drink 40s (he said no, they have their own beer, Moose Head, lol). Had a nice discussion on all the dangerous equipment to be found in a grocery store, since almost every one of them was used to kill somebody. And wheat germ attack!
Golem, SheSaid, Lon (a bit late), Vas, Az (fist half)
Lon laid out his encyclopedia of knowledge on everyone actor in the movie, including the massive overlap in this movie and The Sopranos. There was some talk about tax forms in movies, brought up by Golem (?). Lon got DISCOED. Vas forgot that he had time change (daylight savings or whatever they call it over there), so he was all confused. We named Lon's shark "Funkenstein SuperPoop." I was busy writing another anti-spammer post, SheSaid said he wants to go get a bigger fish; yeah, got me, too on that one. Afterward, SheSaid and Vas expressed their admiration. Lon was shushed when noting cameos (SheSaid will be dealt with later)
Lon (ran this one), SheSaid, Vas, HQ (in and out)
-HQ hates that her youth prevented her from experiencing Carpenter/Craven/ Romero/Raimi in their prime.
-Shesaid hates when university gets in the way.
-Lon hates Wrong Turn
Lon (ran this film), Golem, Vas, HQ (in and out), AZ (partial)
- Golem screams "Someone hold my bowels!"
- Az is the Monkey Lord of Dong
- Lon owns a shark he rides and crotch-punches regularly
HQ - has a jones for candy corn, which has the consistency of wax and can induce a sugar coma
- some talk of an impromptu movie night on Halloween night (nothing concrete yet)
Az (part time), HQ, Lon, Vas, Golem,
Discussed the various way we would stab each other, and how the cannon fodder girls tend to blondes. We liked the multiple beginnings. Lots of talk about how hot Anna Paquin and Neve Campbell are. Mostly split down the middle. At this point my hamburger came home via my lovely wife Vampy, and I told the crew I shall be back after, "I enjoy the meaty flavor of the meat on meat rolls with meat sauce and meaty toppings!" (HQ is a vegetarian, ) Then I come back and every is at different times and scenes. Impressive for only 10 minutes! Also, there was much confusion between the actresses in the actual Scream movies and the fake Stab movies.
Note from Lon- "Lon and HQ think Neve Cambpell's hot" and "Nobody can tell a Stab from a Scream" "
Trick 'r Treat:
Az (part time), HQ, Lon
SheSaid, Panda & Vas for a various bits
Lots of talk about Halloween outfits. HQ was complaining Halloween isn't such a big deal across the pond. Lon has had some elaborate outfits in the past. Lon and HQ talked about who would make a good Lara Croft. The redhead from the TV show The Mentalist came up. Then we got yelled at by HQ for talking about a 3-legged dog, so I had to switch it up to 3-legged hobo goats. Talked about how it was a fun weekend, but also how it's draining to compress so many movies into that span of time. Via HQ- "The werewolves were hot and vomiting 30 gallons of blood was slightly off."
Az, HQ, Lon, Panda
After a 20 minute delay where Vampy joined us just to chit chat, we spent most of the time discussing the technical aspects of the film. Plus the history of the film, the sequels, etc. Not a lot of funny talk this time.
