Got back from Anime Club's annual Craptacular show just over an hour ago.
There were three copies of The Wizard of Speed & Time (sorry, Hal) there this year but we didn't see it. At least, not yet.
G.I. Joe: The Movie was an entertaining if not promising start to the first 8 hour run of bad movies and random crap we'll see this weekend. Cobra wants to take over the world, reptile people get involved, hilarity ensues. The first fatality happened a full hour into the film. Some war cartoon, eh? We watched a number of the original PSAs included with the DVD but I know you'd rather see the fan-dubs.
Revenge of the Ninja at least kept with the Asian theme. The gore was inexplicably exaggerated in this film, making the smallest cut appear like an overcooked, infected hot dog. The best scenes were a fight with a hot blonde (well, hot for this film) wearing no pants, and any that involved the six-year-old fighting martial arts. As cool as he was, Ke Huy Quan could still kick his ass.
Break time involved dinner at Ian's pizza for nine of us. We returned to find others watching Neurotically Yours. Um... Yeah.
Once again matt_william brought the evening's favourite, this time being Michael Jackson's Moonwalker. I had only seen segments of this previously and thought at the time it would make sense if I saw the entire thing. Not so. There is about ten minutes of a weak story where Joe Pesci attempts to hook kids on drugs interspersed with eighty of musical numbers and Jittlovian special effects that make drugs unnecessary. The claymation is entertaining, especially when the Jackson 5 look like the California Raisins, and it's all from an era when I actually liked MJ's image and style, aka: Smooth Criminal. I might get this if it's ever released on DVD... Might.
Ultimate Teacher could be described as "Cromarty High School with more panty shots," but I don't think I will. All these years I thought the cute girl on the cover was the teacher. She isn't. And unfortunately, the panty shots are almost exclusively male.
None of the titles I brought this time were played but there is still tomorrow. There's intrest in Cube so I'll bring it again, as well as my flash drive in case I get an opportunity to subject everyone to "Play With Me", a rather disturbing interactive Quicktime animation. It's 13.16 Mb for those who dare. For those who don't, goodnite. I'll have more crappy news tomorrow.

P.S. Finally, finally finished last weekend's entry about Batman and Rocky.
P.P.S. crabmoon left a message from Texas tonite looking for the_tick27. I called her back and we chatted for a bit about what we did over the past couple days. I wished her a happy birthday and revealed my gift of a paid LJ account. She misses us already so be sure to flood her journal with comments.
Additional: The Amityville Toaster, make breakfast spooky, spooky talk from toaster, spooky eat me toast, yum yum yum, human hand.
