These are a few of my favorite things (when I’m hungover)

There are a handful of movies that I will watch no matter what – if they happen to be on television. These movies are like presents when they air – I don’t have cable, so I am usually out of town or staying with friends when I chance upon them and this factor contributes to my heightened enjoyment of them.  They are particularly good when a person is nursing a hangover. Partake of a light breakfast (black coffee and a Sidecar) and behold the splendor:

Van Helsing – admittedly, this movie is terrible – but my love for Vampires and Werewolves is thick as thieves and I am willing to overlook some silly costumes and wigs for a film that combines them.  Also, as a bonus (if only for me) it recently came to my attention that Will Kemp – who portrays  Velkan Valerius, a werewolf in Van Helsing – can also be found in Step It Up II:  The Streets as dance instructor Blake Collins at the Maryland School of the Arts!  Crossover genre double-trouble!

Big Trouble In Little China – Sweet Sausage Sandwich.  I love watching this movie under any circumstances…why?  You may ask…because it is magnificent. The roles of the leading-man-action-hero and the comical side-kick are transposed here and it is wonderful.  Truly.

Clue – I love this movie sooooo much.  There are flames, flames on the side of my face.


Thomas Jane is getting ready to open up that can of whup ass in his hand in Deep Blue Sea

Deep Blue Sea – There is no shortage of pay-off in viewing this movie.  A big-name, high-profile actor dies spectacularly. A mortally injured man (who is strapped to a gurney attached to a helicopter which is trying to air-lift him to a hospital) survives long enough to be ripped from the sky by a genetically modified shark. The shark  then takes him deep underwater,  still attached to the gurney and breathing from an oxygen cylinder – and hurls him into an underwater research station like a battering ram!  Thomas Jane is in it as well.  I once had a dream that Thomas Jane asked me to marry him and I had to refuse his proposal because I couldn’t be Jane Jane.

Teen Witch – There is a rap battle, here:  video.


No doubt you have heard by now, Bea Arthur passed away this weekend.  I am hardly the right person to give her the loving tribute she so richly deserves, but I would be remiss if I didn’t mention her passing.  I am pleased to say that I am too young to remember her starring role in Maude – I got to know Bea through her portrayal of Dorothy Zbornak on The Golden Girls (which, coincidentally, is a wonderful show to enjoy while you are nursing a hangover).   I’m having cheesecake in your honor, Pussycat.

Editor’s note-Regrettably I have seen Deep Blue Sea at least 20 times, and any time I run across it on cable I am transfixed by its glorious awfulness.  I hope it is on this weekend.  Final note-that man strapped to the gurney was none other than Stellan Skarsgard.  Seriously.

    The thing that made it for me during the Teen Witch video was that the video itself couldn’t keep up with the musical stylings of the teens involved.
