Friday B-Movie Pick: Sky High

Sky High

Going back to 2005 for another Mary Elizabeth Winstead flick. Sky High is the nickname for a floating high school where the children of superheros, super villains  and their respective sidekicks to learn the trade of their parents. It’s a fun, light hearted flick that combines teen angst and super powers. It has a good cast which includes B-Movie SuperStar Bruce Campbell, Dave Foley, Lynda Carter, and Kevin Heffernan as Ron Wilson, Sky High Bus Driver. Oh ya, Kurt Russell is in it too. He plays the father of the protagonist, the uber-superhero of the era. Which provides a whole new level of angst to his son, who has to try to live up to his parent’s reputation as the top of the superhero food chain.

Friday B-Movie Pick: Awsomest Maximus

National Lampoon’s The Legend of Awesomest Maximus

National Lampoon is back in the spoofing biz.  In this one they take on Troy, The 300Gladiator and a bit of Braveheart thrown in for flavor.  They go for the cheap gag line every chance they get, which is what makes this spoof awesome!  Plus they cracked open the piggy bank for the budget and sprang for topless actresses.  So there is plenty of scantly clad, bare breasted, hot young blonde women in the film.  This isn’t a beer and pretzels movie, it’s a six pack and ribs movie.  They had fun making this movie, and you should relax and enjoy watching it.

Friday B-Movie Pick: Scoop

Scoop

Woody Allen’s latest movie. I was a bit hestitant about watching this after the horribly bad Curse of the Jade Scorpion, but I figured at worst, Scarlett Johansson might provide some decent eye candy, which she does BTW. I was pleasantly surprised that this flick was much better than the last effort I saw by the Woodman, but then that bar wasn’t set very high. At least he didn’t cast himself as the romantic lead in this one, instead taking the role of the helpful elder, sort like your goofy uncle who alway avoided those ‘respectible’ jobs. Hugh Jackman supplies the eye candy for those who aren’t into curvy blonde females. You won’t be studying this one in film school, unless you are doing a theis on Woody Allen, but this one was worth the rental and home made popcorn.

101 Uses for My Ex-Wife’s Wedding Dress by Kevin Cotter

Ok, this book isn’t available until tomorrow, but it is just so mind blowingly awesome that it has to be today’s book pick. The author’s wife left him after 12 years and said to keep the wedding dress, he could do whatever he wanted with it. Word of advice darling, don’t give a man a challenge like that.
