In retrospect, an interesting time full of humor and good Sci-fi fun.
Shelly and I got to see The Last Starfighter at the Alamo Drafthouse last night and now I know why it was sold out, it was a Mile Hi Sci-fi showing in which two comedians heckle the show in the style of Mystery Science Theater 3000.
We had gone in a true love of the film and to see it on the big screen. We had no idea it was going to be that kind of screening. Thankfully we both have a sense of humor and found it outstanding! If you cannot have fun with your self then what is the point?
Sure we love the movie, but we will also confess, yes, there are some cheesy moments. My favorite part was the reoccurring joke about the song “Sweet Home Alabama” by Lynyrd Skynyrd and the big red truck owned by the town playboy. The timing was classic. The only meh moments were the Ziodberg jokes.
It was also nice to hear some of my favorite lines such as when Alex protests, “I’m just a kid from a trailer park,” and Centauri played by the talented Robert Preston retorts, “If that’s what you think, then that is all you’ll ever be.” Also, it was great when the audience would laugh at moments without any help from the comedians, it was all originally intended from the director…well, okay some of us just were in that immature head space by then too–it certainly helped for a very entertaining evening.
We have decided that should they do this again for Krull, another Sci-fi cheesy classic we are ashamed to admit we like, we will try our best to be there. I know, we have nerd problems.
Other than that, this break is all work, writing, cleaning, playing pool, open mic night, pedicure, friends, and family. Packed already. Well, see how it goes with the darker side of fiction writing as that is the focus tomorrow.
