    Super, and Elektra Luxx:
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2012/...-up-crime.html

    The former is actually quite good fun (from James Gunn, btw) and the latter is a massive pile of pretentious horse shit.

    And yes, I will be getting to Weird Science pretty soon.

    Can you imagine if the tables had been turned and if some grown bloke have been taking showers with two 15yr old girls? How that wouldn't have been tolerated...

    Yeah....totally different outcome.

    I'm glad to hear you enjoyed Weird Science, MZ. I was kinda shocked you hadn't seen it sooner. I'm not sure how tv programming works on your side of the pond, but hardly a month goes by without Weird Science airing here in the states. It's like a regular staple of weekend afternoon movies.

    I regularly quote Bill Paxton's character. So many funny lines. Paxton was born to play those kinds of roles(as James Cameron saw and later utilized). Also, no mention of Oingo Boingo? Shame on you.

    haha! I know, right?!

    Total teenage male fantasy mind you ... but the sweet-natured version ... in reality she'd probably just be a sex robot!

    True, I did forget to mention Oingo Boingo, but speaking of that track, I've had it on my playlist for years - so I'm very familiar with that song - indeed it's been stuck in my head since the subject was brought up a week or so ago.

    I've seen it now-and-then on TV over here, but I've always noticed when it's nearly over, and oftentimes it's around late afternoon - so it'd be cut - so what's the point? Fortunately I got to see it uncut yesterday.

    Yay! Glad to hear you got to see it. Weird Science was one of those movies that HBO and their competitors had a hard-on for in the 1980s and I literally must have seen it a hundred times growing up.

    Good catch, MZ...I've only ever watched Return II a handful of times (though I did have the dubious honor of seeing it in the theater) and never would have caught this.

    Also, glad you enjoyed Love & Other Drugs, I found it pretty well done, myself.

    I haven't had the chance to see Love and Other Drugs, but some of the clips and photos i've seen of Anne Hathaway definitely has me interested.

    Can't wait to see her in tight leather as catwoman.

    Agreed. I have no idea how many times I've seen Weird Science, but it has to be easily over 50+.

    She looked very familiar when I was watching it, but it was the blonde hair that threw me off (she had red hair in ROTLD2) ... speaking of ROTLD2, I've seen that numerous times too, although looking at it now, compared to ROTLD it's shite. There's good stuff in there, such as the bumbling duo of grave robbers, that kid's older sister, and - the red head.

    Regarding Love & Other Drugs, all I ever heard about it when it was released was "oh, they're both naked all the time", which isn't very accurate (although it is a highpoint for Hathaway fans ), but the flick itself is pretty good. A nice mix of the serious with the smutty.

    I've had that song stuck in my head for days now - good track, mind.

    A gentle rant about Zack Snyder's "Sucker Punch":
    http://deadshed.blogspot.co.uk/2012/...unch-zack.html

    I detest his remake of Dawn of the Dead, roll my eyes at 300, but actually rather like Watchmen (in extended Director's Cut form) ... so what did I make of Sucker Punch - and indeed, what did you folks of HPOTD make of Sucker Punch?

    My god, this is like watching one of those moviel length, Michael Jackson music videos.

    08-03, 12:30 AcesandEights
    Wow, beautiful over the top visuals, but it has all the feel, emotion & viewer investment of a mortal kombat sequel.

    08-03, 12:30 AcesandEights
    This movie must have been huge in Japan.

    08-03, 12:33 AcesandEights
    God, the music...what was the thought process behind some of these choices?!
    And you know I give Z Snyder a pretty fair shake, but it was wretched. The wheels just fell off from conceptualization through to execution. He started with an okay premise, but got caught up with too much...too much slo mo, too much in the way of over-stylized renderings, too much caricature, too much shitty music etc.

    Sounds like most of his other movies, too.
