Scary Movie (2000)

The first Scary Movie spoofed many of the films listed on this list, as well as others that are not currently available on Netflix. Though it was officially released in 2000, it definitely belongs here. Anna Faris and Shannon Elizabeth costar in this Wayans brothers comedy that is mainly based on the original Scream flick. Fun fact: Scream’s working title was Scary Movie.

Teaching Mrs. Tingle (1999)

The first Kevin Williamson penned movie on this list is the black comedy Teaching Mrs. Tingle. Katie Holmes, Marisa Couglan (Super Troopers), Barry Watson (Sorority Boys) and Helen Mirren co-star. The simple plot is about teens who want revenge on their bitchy teacher, the always sexy Helen mirren.

The Faculty (1998)

This high school alien invasion flick from Robert Rodriguez is a must see. It’s The Body Snatchers meets The Breakfast Club. A truly fab 90s cast, including Josh Hartnett, Elijah Wood and Shawn Hatosy, is able to give life to the teen archetypes presented here. The teachers in the film are played by so many amazing actors that I’m not even going to list them, just watch it.

Disturbing Behavior (1998)

Disturbing Behavior is a creepy look at high school jock mentality. Something (and or someone) is changing these small town teens into shiny, 50’s style goodie two shoes, except when they get horny and then homicidal. Katie Holmes shines as sexy “trash” in this Kevin Williamson penned guilty pleasure. James Marsden (X-Men) costars as the new kid.

Bride of Chucky (1998)

Definitely my favorite Chucky flick, this one is over the top fun. Jennifer Tilly is a boobaliscious, goth trailer chick who she gets her wish and brings back her ex, now in Chucky’s body, of course. Things get completely zany when he also transfers her soul to doll form. A young Katherine Heigl and John Ritter (as her angry dad) costar. Also keep an eye out for Alexis Arquette who is amazing in this.

Scream (1996)

You’re most likely familiar with Wes Craven’s Scream. A hot cast of well known actors mixed with up and comers appear in this slasher movie that is so in the know that Jamie Kennedy’s character even lists what must happen in a horror flick in one of the definitive scenes. The cast is rounded out with Neve Canpbell (as the hero), Skeet Ulrich (as his hottest), Matthew Lillard, Rose McGowan (as a blonde), Henry Winkler, David Arquette and Courtney Cox. Some of the sequels are also available on Netflix.

“Is this your first trip…well don’t worry things hardly ever fuck up around here”

4 out of 5 stars

“No wonder you’re having nightmares, you’re always watching the news”

This post is for the LAMB Acting School 101: Arnold Schwarzenegger. When I thought of Arnold Total Recall instantly came to mind. The remake starring Colin Farrell is being released in August so it’s fresh in my mind. My sister remarked, “well what sucks is that we already know the ending”.

That’s when I realized that I hadn’t watched the film in years. In fact when I dug out my VHS (yes, I still buy them at the flea market sometimes, that’s me with the quarters, jealous?) I wasn’t sure I’d ever watched the entire movie all of the way through. I was young when it came out, with a short attention span. I’m now pretty sure I’d only watched 20 minutes of it here and there before a commercial came on some cable station and I said fuck it.

While my sister has probably seen every Schwarzenegger flick a half dozen times over I’m not as familiar with his ouvrir. So, I thought, why not give the original a spin?

“…you ever fuck a mutant…”

“…I have to hand it to you, that’s the best mind fuck yet”

The consensus? I totally dug it. I realized when I saw Paul Verhoeven’s name show up on screen and what could be considered completely unnecessary cursing that this is a flick for me. In case you are unaware, Verhoeven is also the visionary director behind my all time favorite movie Showgirls. BTW-The amazing Dan O’Bannon was a writer on the film.

If you haven’t seen Total Recall let’s put it this way, it’s set in one of my favorite sci-fi genres, the paleofuturistic style flick (meaning an envisioned future that never came to pass). Plus it’s dystopian, you really can’t beat that combo.

Arnie is a construction worker with a beautiful wife (Sharon Stone) and the ammenities of modern life. However he feels strongly drawn to Mars. You see in this future Mars has been colonized. However on Earth people don’t really know what is going down there. They just know that it’s considered dangerous.

At the same time Earth’s inhabitants are bombarded with ads from a company called Rekall. Rekall will implant a memory in your mind. This way you can take an awesome trip and really feel like you went there for less than the price of the actual trip. Plus there’s supposedly a lot less risk involved, except you know, they are fucking with your brain.

Arnie mentions his desire to visit Rekall to a friend who tries to warn him that it’s a bad idea. You could get lebotomized or something. At Rekall they try to talk him into a stress free trip but his heart is set on Mars. He dreams of Mars. He feels like he’s already been there.

His memory implant involves being a secret agent and dating a brunette (his wife is blonde, he needs the variety). So when everything seemingly goes to shit and they can’t implant him because the techs say he’s been wiped before you’re never really sure what’s around the corner, just like Arnie.

As they tell him, if that’s the fantasy you asked for then what’s the chance that’s your real life and this mission to help the mutants of Mars is true?

So what is the outcome?

Watch and find out.

I haven’t done a photo set in forever. So I’ve been itching to do one, but not a scantily clad one. Then last week we had this beautiful snow storm. So I knew that I had to put something together and take photos before it turned into sludge.

The only thing I was sure of was wearing some blue tights that I scored for $1 at It’s A Buck (yes!). At first I decided on a lovely blue and green dress but when I put it on I felt that it was nice but that it wouldn’t pop enough against the snow. Then I threw dresses all over my bedroom until I came upon my yellow dress. It was perfect. While doing my makeup I decided upon blue eyeshadow and then thought, “make it crazier…SNOW ALIEN!…and I did. You see she can’t feel how cold it is.

I took the advice that I usually ignore and didn’t include a bunch of similar shots. However I did include one because I really liked it and it was nice to edit a photo that didn’t have my face in it.

This post is a part of 90s Month.

Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey is the sequel to Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure. Bill & Ted are slacker, wannabe musicians. In the first film they traveled through time. In this follow up they travel to the afterlife, awesome! This is the sequel that I always bring up when someone says “All sequels suck and none are better than the original”. While I’m also a big fan of the first film this sequel is at least 10 times more amazing. (Also, Keanu has way better hair.)

Rufus: “A special treat from the 23rd century, Miss Ria Paschelle. Miss Paschelle, as you all know, is the inventor of the statiophonic, oxyogenetic, amplifier graphaphoner delaverberator, hard to imagine the world before we had them.”

Rufus: “…and very important, do not do your homework without wearing headphones.”

Evil Ted: “He’s totally a robot.”
Evil Bill: “So are you dude.”
Evil Ted: “We’re total metal heads!”

Evil Ted: “Catch you later evil dude.”

Ms. Wardroe: “Guys, you keep telling me you’re going to be the biggest band in the world but you stink.”
Bill: “Yeah, we don’t understand it either.”

Ted: “If we win I can totally pay you back the money I owe you.”
Captain Logan: “And what if you don’t win?”
Ted: “Well, um, I guess, um, maybe sell some more blood”

Ted: “I can’t believe Missy divorced your dad and married mine.”
Bill: “Shut up Ted”

Ted: “What’s next?”
Elizabeth: “Maybe she’ll marry you.”
Bill: “Yeah, then you’ll be your own step dad.”

Evil Ted: “Aim for the cat dude, aim for the cat!”

Bill: “Dude?”
Ted: “What?”
Bill: “I wonder if after we’re married the princesses will stay over with us.”
Ted: “Yeah, our girlfriends are most chaste.”
Bill: “At least they’re not dating our dads.”
Ted: “Good point dude.”

Evil Bill: “I totally fooled those other us’.”
Evil Ted: “Yeah, they’re completely brilliant.”
Evil Bill & Evil Ted: “Not!”

Evil Ted: (looking at a picture of the princesses) “I’ve got a full on robot chubby.”

Ted: “That other you’s a real jerk.”
Bill: “Yeah, I’ve got to work on being more considerate to myself when I become him.”

Evil Bill: “Yes, I totally lougied on that good, dead me.”

Ted: “I can’t believe we just melvined Death.”

Bill: “You totally did it dude.”
Captain Logan: “I totally possessed my dad!”

Bill: “Has this seance stuff every worked?”
Ted: “No, but it will today, dude.”

Missy: “Spirits, can you hear us?”
Ted: (hovering over Missy during the seance) “Yeah, and we can totally see down your”
Bill: “That’s your mom dude”

Bill: (while falling to hell) “Dude this is a totally deep hole.”

(in hell)
Ted: “Oh man, this is not what I expected this place to look like at all.”
Bill: “Yeah, we got totally lied to by our album covers man.”

Bill: “Ted, if I die you can have my Megadeath collection.”
Ted: “We’re already dead.”
Bill: “Then they’re yours dude.”
Ted: “Thanks dude.”

Bill: “There’s no way I can possibly do infinite push ups.”
Ted: “Maybe if he let’s us do ’em girly style”

Ted: (reading) “Only the most serene and enlightened souls shall gain audience. Dude we’re in big trouble.”

Ted: “Dude, we’re in heaven and we just mugged 3 people.”
Bill: “I know, we better get out of here before we ruin it for everybody.”

Heaven’s Receptionist: “What is the meaning of life?”
Ted: “Every rose has it’s thorn just like every night as it’s dawn”
Bill: “Just like every cowboy sings a sad, sad song.”
Death: “Every rose has a thorn.”

Bill & Ted: “Catch you later God!”

De Nomolos: “I hate them. I hate the robot versions of them.”
Evil Bill: “You invented us dude.”

Death: “Did you assume that the most brilliant scientist in the entire universe would be from Earth?”

Evil Bill: “How’s it going lady humans?”

Bill: (to Station) “…plus you’ve got an excellently huge Martian butt.”
Death: “Don’t overlook my butt. I workout all the time and reaping burns a lot of calories.”

Bill: “You totally killed us you evil, metal dickweeds.”
Evil Ted: “Yeah, and we’re fully gonna do it again.”


Ted: “Dude, we still don’t know how to play.”
Bill: “Maybe we oughta get good dude, Ted.”
Ted: “How?”
(leave and return in phone booth)
Bill: “That was a fast 16 months of intensive guitar training dude.”
Ted: “Yeah, except for that 2 week medieval honeymoon.”


Bill: “And our back up dancers, Station’s most bodacious creations, the good robot us’!”

Death: “You might be a king or a little street sweeper but sooner or later you dance with the Reaper.”
