Pee-wee’s Big Adventure

March 19, 2007

Pee Wee’s Big Adventure
“I pity da fool who don’t eat my breakfast cereal!

What is arguably one of the funniest movies of the 1980’s, Paul Reubens creates the mythical character of Pee-wee Herman. Pee Wee, who is apparently perpetually 10 years old and extremely unemployed, spends most of his time rigging contraptions to make his breakfast and finding time to creepily obsess over his gangster style bling-bling bike.

On a routine visit to the local magic shop to “stock up supplies” his bike is stolen through 9 layers of locked chains sending Pee-wee into a super-sized nervous breakdown. Pee wee assumes it’s his arch nemesis Francis another unemployed man-child played convincingly played by Mark Holton. Pee-wee attacks Francis in his over-sized bathtub pool ala mobster style interrogation but gets no result so instead he seeks the cosmic wisdom of giant facial moled astrologist. She tells him his bike is in the basement of the Alamo, So Pee-wee sets off on his big adventure across the country to find his beloved leg-powered machine. He encounters a wide variety of weird characters from a ghost truck driver , a waitress with a manly sounding French accent, a motorcycle gang, a escaped convict, and other assortment of people you’d run into at a late night Denny’s. Eventually ending up in the capitol of weirdos, Hollywood California where he leads a chase across the backlots of Warner Brothers. Will Pee-wee get his bike back? Will his girlfriend Dot get to finally go on an actual date with him? Will we ever find out when the 100 uses for corn are?

A hilarious movie for the whole family and a generational film everyone should see. Also be sure track down his old tv show “Pee Wee’s Playhouse.” for even more laughs.

“Can you say Adobe?” “aaahhhddddoooohhhhbbeeee”

Keep an eye out for…

– Pillow tag cutting fugitives on the run
– American Idol training for hobo’s
– Dinosaurs with built-in stadium seating
– Platform shoe table top dancing
– Large Marge eye bulging
– Oversized bathtubs for a creepy man-child

Bubba Ho-Tep

March 16, 2007

Bubba Ho-tep
“That’s either Elvis or a werewolf.

Ho-Tep-1. Realative or descendent of the 17 egyptian dynasties, 3100-1550 B.C. 2. Family surname of egyptian Pharaoh (king).

Bubba-1. Male from the southren U.S. 2. Good Ole Boy
3.Cracker, Red Neck, Trailer Park Resident.

Slap the two together like peanut butter and bananas you’ve got yourself a fine b-movie sandwich called Bubba Ho-Tep. Bruce Campbell stars as the king of rock n’ roll who secretly now resides in a creepy retirement facility (the waiting room for God.) and no Elvis has not left this building..in fact he’s pretty much stuck in bed talking to himself and complaining about a growth on his pecker that may or may not be cancer.

Elvis had decided to trade places with an Elvis impersonator a few years back. You’d think that if you were Elvis and wanted to blend with the crowd you trade with a middle aged over-weight league bowler from Biloxi. Good hip movement is critical in a successful bowling technique after all.

His performance days are put to an end though when he breaks his hip during a local impersonation show (there goes the bowling league) and is sent to spend his remaining days at a anti-luxury retirement center in the Texas backwoods. He soon discovers that residents are dying off faster than usual and with the help of his friend John F. Kennedy, a aging black man who thinks he’s the former president, they begin to unravel the mystery. Turns out it’s an ancient mummy who has taken up residence at the home for it’s all you can eat buffet of death and is sucking residence souls through any available orifice (yeah you get the picture). He’s also a very snappy dresser in his mummy cowboy boats and hat and is generally ticked off at being dead.

Elvis and JFK do battle against this ancient pharoah with the help of their walker and motorized wheel chair while they attempt to defend the home’s residents against the onslaught of the mummy’s soul-food diet.This is a great little horror/comedy that if anything will make you be even nicer to your kids so they don’t put you in a similar home when you’re old.

Keep an eye out for…

– BBQ/napalm trailer park accidents
– soul sucking redneck mummies in cowboy boots
– offensive Egyptian bathroom graffiti
– kleptomaniac Grandmas
– motorized wheel chair kung-fu
– Senior Walkers Texas Rangers
– flying Elvis

at no point did Elvis say “uh hey there uh pretty mummy”
rated 8.4 out of 10 for the movie

Blood Sisters

March 5, 2007

Blood Sisters
“shhhhh…did someone say there’s a sale on plaid!?

In the fine cinematic tradition of Hell High, Halloween, and Friday the 13th, Blood Sisters is another slasher wanna-be where the madness and mayhem all stem from an innocent kid going through traumatic events thereby making them psycho killers adults. All child actor stars should be watched carefully by law enforcement if this is the case. The movies start when a little girl calls a young boy a pervert because he doesn’t have a father. This doesn’t make any sense at all..wouldn’t that make him a bastard and not a pervert?

Apparently it traumatizes the boy much more than the fact then he’s the son of a prostitute who lives in a nearby brothel house. This small business startup apparently was overlooked by the neighborhood association. The Victorian house is filled with some weird ladies of the night dressed in strange westerns neo 18th century wardrobes just hanging around looking like they just took a dozen Benadryls.

Well business goes bad when one of the patrons and an employee of the month is killed via a double barrel shot gun. The brothel is shut down for good apparently not just for breaking some local noise ordinances. Eeesh did anybody notice before that there was a house of hookers in the neighborhood?

Flash forward 13 years and the co-eds of a local sorority are pledging their new members. Much like a PBS pledge drive it consists of weird rituals, white robes, and drinking goats blood. Their next secret initiation is spending the night in the legendary abandoned whorehouse which is also now supposedly haunted. Before their arrival some dorky frat guys who barely can muster enough intelligence to carry a box through a doorway set up pranks to scare the girls. Every stereotype of girl arrives there, nerdy girl, trashy girl, won’t stop talking girl, snobby girl, plus some other girls who apparently are so dispensable that there names aren’t even mentioned. I believe in the credits they’re referred to as big haired victims#1-4. Take count as they all kinda look alike in the set’s bad lighting.

Watch in horror as the girls try to escape to their van only to find that it won’t start (shocking!) and while complaining that it’s too cold to stay there decide to go back into the house where the murder still lumbers around. Apparently they’d rather be killed than a bit chilly. It’s a guessing game who the murderer is but if you pay only the slightest attention you’ll figure it out. This movie is lame and it’s only saving grace is the terrific commentary track by Joe Bob Briggs and for that it is well worth taking a look.

Keep an eye out for…
– jack-in-the-box scene of terror
– JCPenny manquin noosings
– flying scarfs
– shot-gun view-cam
– dangerous over-acting
– special f/x ghost hookers

rated 3.1 out of 10 for the movie (8.8 for the commentary track and interview)
