Last night we saw Evil Dead 2 in its original 35mm format to a sold-out crowd in Atlanta's best art house, the Plaza Theatre.
it was quite the experience, complete with a guy dressed as Ash - blood-stained, sawed-off shotgun, chainsaw for an arm and all. As for the movie...the film quality was average, the sound was noticeably distorted and i have never been happier. A+
Coming Soon to the Plaza Theatre: John Carpenter's They Live
Sweet sweet sweet! I wanna watch movies in The Plaza Theatre too!

On Sunday we watched Wes Craven's New Nightmare, Pet Sematary, The Ring, and part of The Midnight Meat Train. There was a bit too much bludgeoning (SO MUCH BLUDGEONING) for the end of the night so we didn't watch the whole thing.
And on Monday we watched Ernest Scared Stupid. Hilarious.

Nice, dude. That's some first-rate cheese.
We watched hella movies last weekend. The copy of May we ordered finally showed up, and we got a real kick out of that one. It was so cute and disgusting. Then we watched Poltergeist III, which may not be, like, the most awesome of the Poltergeist films but there were some pretty nifty special effects and a pre-Twin Peaks Lara Flynn Boyle. Ooh, and then we watched Cronenberg's The Fly, because I love it so much. And then we watched The Fly II, with Eric Stoltz because I'd never seen it before. It's... not as good.
I watched X-Men: First Class last night, and while it wasn't my favorite of the series I still enjoyed the hell out of it. That was the only super hero franchise I was into as a kid so they could probably keep making these movies forever and I would love every one of them. The cameos were great as well.

Because I'm sick on the couch today with the flu I needed something mindless to watch, so I watched Fast Five. As far as moronic, logic defying action drivel goes, it was pretty fucking awesome. It's the first one I've seen since the original and I enjoyed it.

I wouldn't be surprised if you are picturing me peeling a carrot with a staple gun.
We used to have Thomas the Tank Engine books on tape narrated by Ringo Starr when I was a kid. I'm just glad that I had music loving parents or that would have been my first introduction to anything Beatles.
