The third fandom I’m considering will be one of these:
-Bewitched (original series, due to watching an outrageous amount of it on Me-TV and FamilyNet, and rediscovering an interest in it)
-Mr. Boogedy (1986)
-Columbo (just started watching the series on Me-TV this year, sort of love it)
-Dark Shadows (1991 series)
-Fright Night (1985)
-The Goldbergs (2013 sitcom)
-Murder By Death (1976)
-Night of the Comet (1984)
If you really wish to see one of the above, please let me know.
Suspiria is due to recently having started watching some Italian horror movies on Youtube. I don’t see how a fanfic could come out of it due to its lack of real coherency, but hey. It’s on the ‘maybe I’ll nominate it’ pile.
I assume someone else will nominate Sleepy Hollow, (the series, unless it doesn’t qualify anymore) the new Flash series or Gotham when they premiere.
Highlights from my showing? There weren't too many speak of. I was the only person there at all, in the room Ghostbusters was shown in.
The air was terrible, sort of a mix of stuffy, and severely humid. But it still felt as though the air conditioning was running, just not right. It was like someone had opened the exit door and left it open for a few days, in that one particular theater room and the air coniditoning was just moving it around. It was starting to get oppressive--then, someone popped their head in the door, glanced around, shot a text message to someone, to presumably confirm there was one solitary soul in attendance, and left--and then the air conditioning worked harder for five minutes, it started to get better...before going dead.
So around when Mr. Stay Puft was stomping on a church in Peter's town, before the heat actually got any worse, I went on my way. We've been getting a heat index of around 107 for over a week, and I'd rather not sit in a theater and overheat.
Aside from those issues, the showing looked very crisp and clear. I finally spotted Ron Jeremy's cameo. However, for the first time I noticed a character on a stretcher outside Dana's building, as the Ghostbusters pull up. From a distance, it appeared as though it could have been the elderly woman that spotted the Terror Dog chasing Louis, who ran back inside. I could be wrong.
*The movie started 27 minutes later than expected, due to all the trailers.
So August 29th, provided there are no severe thunderstorms, illnesses, or anyone requiring the use of the car for a doctor’s visit (my sister goes the day before, provided nothing changes) then once I get tickets, I should be going to the 11:30 AM showing. They have it five times that day, so if something happens I’ll be heading for the 2 PM showing.
People keep bringing up Dead Poets Society and Good Morning Vietnam as better movies of his—I’ll have to watch them sometime. He was great in The Birdcage. I also remember this little cameo that he and Billy Crystal had in an episode of Friends.
You can read reactions from the White House (they issued a fantastic statement), Pam Dawber, and several others over here and (if you’re interested in one from Sarah Michelle Gellar in this next link) here and here.
John Fasano has passed away at the age of 52—as of now, while no official cause of death has been released, they do know that he died in his sleep. May he rest in peace. He was one of the many writers for Alien 3, and directed several horror films. I recall a few of the VHS covers for some of them, from back in the 80’s. I had been meaning to watch The Jitters (1989), so I’ll track that down shortly.
James Garner passed away Saturday night at the age of 86. May he, too, rest in peace. While he was most famous for his roles in Maverick and The Rockford Files, MST3K fans may also remember him from the episode where they riffed a movie called City Limits. As I have never seen an episode of The Rockford Files, I’ll have to catch an episode when it airs on Me-TV later today. Sound On Sight made a list of his top ten films.
I also remember him hosting a Classic TV Countdown (like this and this) on Nick At Nite every year, in the 80’s and 90’s, and that he appeared as himself on Saved By The Bell. He will be missed.
I don’t believe that I have ever watched anything else she voiced or appeared in.
Due to a particularly urgent need, (four glasses of tea before going since it was 90 degrees, you figure it out) I left the minute the end credits began. I already knew the gist of what happened in the end credits scene, and I located a low quality version of it a couple hours ago on Youtube.
Without spoiling (spoilers are welcome in the comments, though) anything, I will say that I loved it.
Today has been declared lurker amnesty day! Have you read me but never commented? Do you surf by occasionally? Say hello! You are under no obligation to ever comment or delurk again, but here's a chance to do so in a post just for that. Hey, just wave at me, if that's all you want to do and say hi.
Or let me know if either one would have a problem co-existing with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware Premium. Because that’s one that I really won’t be giving up anytime soon.
