Happy Halloween!

In honor of the holiday, TRC and I had a little pre-Halloween party yesterday evening while DKC was working. We watched It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown and You’re Not Elected, Charlie Brown, both of which TRC thought were hilarious. We ate candy corn, and I got him a small Lightning McQueen car (he’s Lightning McQueen this year). He had a blast.

I put him to bed and watched Resident Evil: Apocalypse, which was about as bad as I expected it to be. Lots of things went boom, and there were zombies aplenty (which was my reason to watch it–trying to catch some of the more recent zombie flicks to stay current for ParkerBoy). Two stars. It wasn’t abysmal, but it was nothing to write home about, either. After that, DKC was done, and the two of us watched an edited version of The Rocky Horror Picture Show. This was an odd one for me. My friends in high school used to watch this all the time, and I could have sworn I had seen it at some point in my life. I knew the songs for the first half, but then . . . there was a lot in there that I honestly had no recollection of. I had warned DKC that it was weird. She concluded at the end that it was “even worse than Labyrinth,” which to this point has been what she considers the lowest of the low when it comes to popular American movies that make no sense to her. Hey–anything to get Star Wars away from the bottom of that list. How would I rate Rocky? For what it does, it’d get a strong three stars from me. But it’s definitely high on the strange scale, I’ll grant DKC that. Glad I watched the edited version with her, and not the unedited one (which I must have never seen. I would have remembered that. Definitely.)

Trick or treating to begin soon. DC is a pumpkin. Maybe I’ll remember to post pictures. ๐Ÿ™‚

  1. the Rocky Horror home movie is tame and lame
    You really need to see it as nature intended – in a theater with the appropriately dressed live actors shouting obscenities at (and throwing food at) the movie. If you’ve only seen it at home, you have NOT seen Rocky Horror. It’s a communal experience. Sort of a live, group, R-rated version of Mystery Science Theater. You have to swear if you see it in person, though. Really, them’s the rules.
