I'm a web developer/sysadmin/host (NERD TRIPLE THREAT!) and this is my attempt to write about...leaving the house. Sometimes. Like, to go backpacking. And take some pictures. And justify spending the money on all the gear WHY SO MUCH?!?
Feel free to write and complain.
Smokey and the Bandit was a 1977 feature film that was Not Star Wars. It was a sober (!) meditation on many of American society's ills at her bicentennial. Some of the topics covered were
1) Alcohol abuse
3) Police fitness for duty
4) American cars and cornering
9) Class warfare
10) The peak of American masculinity and attractiveness
Ocean's 11 was a movie made in 1960 about the GI Bill. For some reason it starred a bunch of singers and entertainers and......Peter Lawford?
Frank SInatra plays the partial title character of Danny 11, a washed up sweater model who is longing for the action of opening and closing doors in a building.
Dean Martin plays Dean Martin's mother and you just know he's hitting that HARD
The plot revolves around the wacky hijinks these wonderful scamps get up to on their way to a funeral
All told, this movie was quite the flight of fancy because there is actually no possible way a casino could ever lose money.
I give this film 6 pinky rings.
Recently I watched an educational filmstrip about insurance adjusting called "The Thomas Crown Affair". It plays as a metaphor for how hard it was in the olden days to get by on just four (4!) millions.
The heroes of this teleplay really are the hard working men who came together against a few odds (fucking Erwin) and got the job done. IT'S CALLED TEAMWORK PEOPLE.
The film also sounds a cautionary note about climate change and not paying for an architect.
Why she didn't end up cutting a bitch I will never know. DON'T PUT YOUR LABELS ON ME, EDDIE.
I give this presentation 5 tank engines.
The Night of the Hunter was a Back-When-America-Was-Great-Again documentary about owls. It stars The Cologne Guy and the mother from Silence of the Hams.
I know, how do you have starring roles in a documentary that is ridiculous because HOLLLYWOOD THAT'S WHY STAR SYSTEM!
A sub plot is about the trials and tribulations of
an itinerant preacher who is just as qualified as Franklin Graham to pontificate on what the bearded sky man wants or doesn't want for anyone.
There was also something about ice cream? A shop of some kind? Also: labor laws and why we need unions.
Not pictured: any discussion of comprehensive sex education.
I give this movie 3.14 Them Apples
