Hello, dear friends, I’m back with a vengeance and I have two solid choices for you over this Catholic School’s Week. I just wanted to take the time in this beginning paragraph to express my deepest sadness for the loss of one my nearest and dearest friends, the Dollar Theater in West Mifflin closed Sunday night, January 27th, a day which will live in infamy. For those of you who do not know, the dollar theater was a very ghetto theater that showed movies after they have been out of most theaters, but before they have been released into theaters. Here the movies only cost $1 for admission. I spent many days up at that theater, and I am very deeply saddened by its loss.
If you have a hankering for horror, comedy, “killer klowns,” or outer space then boy, do I have a horrible movie for you. ‘Killer Klowns from Outer Space.’ I kid you not, that is the name of the movie I am recommending for you. The plot stinks, the horror is cheesy, and it is totally awful. I loved every single second of it. Basically this race of aliens, who look like clowns, land on earth in comet-like space ships. They’ve come to earth in order to harvest the human race for sustenance. I could not stop laughing at the movie, and I would quickly give it 5 stars without giving it a second thought.
The good movie of this week available instantly on Netflix is ‘Planes, Trains, and Automobiles.’ This movie stars Steve Martin, as a man just trying to get home for the holidays. Through a variety of comedic circumstances, Steve is continually barred from getting home due to unforeseeable circumstances. This comedy is a misadventure type of movie, similar to other films such as Rat Race. I liked this movie, specifically the acting done by the supporting actor John Candy. His character acts as sort of a ying to the Steve Martin’s character’s tightly strung personality. This was a very heartwarming movie and I certainly would recommend it to anyone looking to kill an hour or 2.
