I'm going to tell  you all a little story. Back when I was about ooooh, let's say 6 or so, my mother took all of us kids (3 at the time) to the drive-in while my dad had to travel. We were bundled up in the car with our 'jammies, chips and cokes, and stuffed into the back seat of the huge-ass Buick my dad owned back then.

Little did I know that the movie my mother just HAD to friggin' see, with 3 kids under the age of SIX, was none other than PSYCHO. I had to sit in the front seat with my mother and watch that movie while my brothers slept through it. Needless to say it traumatized me so much I couldn't take a shower alone until I was 10. My mom had to sit in the bathroom until I finished up.  THANKS MOM !!!

So do you think it affected me??? I'll let y'all be the judge of that...

Huge ass Buick....my dad took us to see Shot in the Dark in a 59 buick two door Lesaber Hard top.  The one with the huge fins like the bat mobile.

Most drive in movies I went with my Jr High friends in my 51 Chevy though.  I had the car, hence I was the popular one.

But if you want to talk movies.....My grandma took us kids to see Psycho at the Fox Theater in San Francisco.  Grand place, red velvet curtains, enough to make David Lynch envious.  Not to mention, "Peeping Tom" which is on Hulu, good god, but heres the best, she not only took us to see "the Birds" but she also took us to Bodega Bay for fish and chips (where the birds was filmed).  Now I dont know about the rest of ya all, but I grew up in San Francisco, and at my grade school hundreds of seaguls would congregate on the roof.  We did in fact, go running and screaming when they would swarm, because, uh duh, they dont peck your eyes out, but they shit all over the place.

I guess I should have some bird complex now, after the movie, the field trip and the daily onslaught of god damn seagulls.

Huge ass Buick?  I wish! I don't know if I was better off or worse in the back of that '57 Nash Rambler Station Wagon.  My mom had bought that car used for $50 bucks and ended up selling it for the same amount when I was 8 years old.  That damn car was like a Timex.  It was still on the road in 1992!

Rambler station wagon...why did you have to remind me.  Ours wasn that old, we were still driving the Chevy Bel Air.  We eventually got a Rambler waggon, I dont know how many miles I walked down lonely roads, dared quicksand in the desert to get muddy water from wierd places to give that piece of crap with old faithful steaming radiator some drink.  Later we got a 64 Rambler Classic, aluminum head, looked a lot like the later Camry which was so popular.  Way ahead of its time.  I think that was the one that picked up a rabbit wrapped around the front axel one night in Oregon.  Oregon sure has a lot of damn animals and bugs.  I ran over a deer once in my Saab, fortunately it had been previously flattened and tenderized by an 18 wheeler.:shock:

Now that reminds me of one of Mom's favorite movies, High Anxiety by Mel Brooks which was basically a parody of all the great Hitchcock films and guess what he chose to do for the parody of The Birds?:new_shocked::bouncebig:

Gaspar Noé's Enter The Void - trippy, audiovisually quite stunning, stylistically intriguing. Great start but the ending spoils it a bit - Noé IMHO went way overboard with all that textbook Freud. (Irréversible is IMHO significantly better.)

No idea if it'll be any good, but there's a movie called Splice looming on the horizon that's directed by a cat named Vincenzo Natali.  He helmed a nifty little Canadian horror/thriller/psychodrama flick called Cube that I've name dropped in posts/reviews from time to time.  Worth a look if you haven't seen it (Sci-Fi airs it once in a while), but stay far far away from the piss-poor sequels.

Cube was pretty cool and the trailer for Splice looks very interesting. It's definitely one of those upcoming movies that I'm fairly curious about...

Okay confession time.  I'm the woman who is always digging through the 'these movies are so bad we can't give them away' bargain bin at the video store and I found one last night that pleasantly surprised me called The Ruins.  I like horror films but I get so tired of the obvious 'slasher' or 'monster' plot line that I could just spit sometimes.  I loved the threat in this one, definitely not the expected culprit for a horror movie monster.

The Ruins is a cool, fairly atmospheric little flick. Saw it about a year ago and liked it quite a lot. It's got some pretty strong moments.

Has anyone seen Zombieland with Woody Harrelson?  I normally don't like gorey movies, but this was hysterical!  Especially his search for the twinkie and Bill Murray's performance, I was LMAO!

Nothing particularly gorey about Zombieland, methinks...:-)

But it was a very entertaining movie. :cool: And yeah, the whole Bill Fucking Murray thing was fucking hilarious...:-) :D
