The Ultimate Holiday Movie

Saturday, December 6th, 2014

If you want to get into the holiday spirit and have a good laugh at the same time, one movie stands out as the quintessential Holiday flick. That movie is Planes, Trains, and Automobiles. The 1987 John Hughes classic is funny and heart-warming. John Candy plays a well-meaning but obnoxious oaf, and Steve Martin plays an over-wound advertising executive. Both endure everything that can go wrong while traveling during the holidays.

The movie is available on Amazon.com if you don’t already own it. It’s also on Netflix, how convenient.

The Princess Bride was released today, October 9th*, back in 1987. Time for a re-watching.

IMG_0409

*with a limited release on September 25th, 1987.


The Princess Bride

Director: Rob Reiner
Genre: Comedy
Released: September 25, 1987
Return to a time when men were men and swamps were swamps. Fire swamps, that is. Full of quicksand and Rodents of Unusual Size. Lagoons were inhabited by shrieking eels. And the most beautiful woman in the world was named…Buttercup? Well, it's a bent fairy tale. Complete with all the fencing, fighting, chases, escapes, and silly accents you'd expect. Plus one of two things only Rob Reiner (director of "Misery", "When Harry Met Sally...") could dream up. Like Inigo Montoya, who has dreamt his whole life of finding the six finger man who killed his father. Blonde Buttercup loves Westley, a poor stable boy. But when he's captured by pirates, she's chosen by evil Prince Humperdinck to be his princess bride. Along the way, she gets kidnapped, he gets killed. But it all ends up okay.

RoboCup

Monday, April 28th, 2014

Robocop-Mug‘Serve the public tea. Protect the coffee break. Upend the biscuit.’ Ladies and gentlemen, we’re proud to introduce the future of tea making technology: RoboCup.

Ok, so this generous ceramic vessel isn’t concealing a gun in its handle. It can’t dispense its own future-dystopian brand of tough justice. But that steely mush will be sure to put a smile on the face of any 80s actionaut – and fan of the original blockbusting movie.

That’s right. The original movie. Not the 2014 one. Although the new one is quite good… But does it have the satirical heft of the first? Fire up the kettle and discuss.

You have twenty seconds to comply.

Available from Amazon.com for $25.11 USD
