Bad Movie Night

My daughter, young Galadriel Tanqueray Onassis and her friend are over this weekend. So we watched another REALLY BAD MOVIE courtesy of Netflix.

This is an evoloution of our old "Fear Factor Monday" where we would watch people eat Madagascar Hissing Cockroaches

while we dined on Hometown Pizza and some wings.

Tonight's selection was "The Brain from Planet Arous"

"This sci-fi flick from the 1950s tells the fantastical story of Steve March (John Agar), a man whose body has been commandeered by an enormous alien brain named Gor that's bent on conquering the Earth. With the help of another extraterrestrial brain that's taken up residence in the family dog, Sally Fallon (Joyce Meadows) hatches a plan to stop the madness by locating Gor's Fissure of Rolando -- the alien equivalent of an Achilles's heel."

I love Netflix. You can't get shit this bad at Blockbuster.

Next up in the Netflix queue...Ed Wood's "Plan 9 from Outer Space"

Widely acknowledged as the worst movie ever made. In ANY genre. Here is a tortuous sample.

I love Bad Movie Night.

Netflix does have a better selection but this movie is actually available at Blockbuster online. I don't usually rent openly bad movies but lots of times I suffer through critically acclaimed movies all the way through the end just to see what was so special that critics liked. Many times these movies suck so bad that I think critics write good reviews because they had to watch it and now they want everyone else to waste 2 hours of their life.

I would suggest a blogger bad movie night but none of us would shut up long enough to hear it. LOL

Some of my favorite teenage memories are of watching bad movies on tv with my dad. You're a good daddy. :)

Galadriel is a lucky girl. I'm glad to see that this sort of thing counts as quality time for other grown-ups too.

My young'un is coming back from a pretty good pneumonia smackdown. My hunch is that it was neither the antibiotics nor the hospital stay that brought her back from the brink. It was watching "Airplane," "Abbott & Costello Meet the Werewolf," "Dawn of the Dead," and as much of the complete "Gumby" as either of us could stomach in a single sitting.

Good for you.

Did L. Ron write that brain from another planet movie? Sounds suspiciously like his kind of work...
