8 Mile (2002) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi,

ummm hi, yes…My name is Brian but my friends call me the Reluctant Rhyme Slayer. Well, they never called me that before tonight…but  on the drive over I heard it a lot. I guess I should have probably known something was up. Hey, thanks for signing me up for this guys and oh…by the way…nothing like Karaoke.

alright…so..I guess…umm…can I get a beat? Thanks. Ah yeah…that’s dope. Yo….MTV Raps

Oh before I start I would just like to thank my opponent here for going first and  for his many honest words. While they were very hurtful…. I feel like I have a great opportunity to take those observations and make some real changes in my life. First thing Monday I’m going on a diet and getting some clothes that fit.

Also, can I just say you really took that “spitting rhymes” thing to  heart. I mean I’ve never been that close to an actual rap and I was not aware how much saliva was involved. Look at me…I’m dripping over here.

Alright, so let’s get this over with…what’s that? Times up? Oh Thank God.

INTRO

Oh hi,

Hey! Young, Dumb and Full of Gum, who told you that you could park on my shooting range…where’s my whistle!

Oh…well hello there…you must be Kathryn Bigelow’s wet dream….I mean…I’m just saying it’s raining out here and you are fulfilling her artist dreams..

Anywho, it’s your turn to take aim at hilariously illustrated bad guys & gals here at the “Sunday Funnies Shooting Range” where it’s funny to shoot  stuff in  the head… or foot. Because everybody knows… foot trauma is the best form of humorous karma.

Ok, Sammy Idaho or Billy Arkansas or whatever your deal is…If at any point you are “looking California and feeling Minnesota” then just stop. Because at that point “break”…I have probably foreshadowed too far into the future.

C’mon…these are the 90s jokes Brah! Smile already, oh wow…4 out of 5 Dentists agree…that’s creepy…Ok…smiling…it ain’t your thing.

Now where’s my whistle! 100% sure you are going to take your shirt off in about 5 minutes if I don’t get out of here.

The Village (2004) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi fellow Village Sackers,

What manner of spectacle has attracted your attention so splendidly? I ought to carry it in my pocket to help me sack… and to do other pocket things.

Who came upon this? Randy, did you inappropriately fondle this Shyamalan?

Who has done this heinous act? Scott, Ibbott?

The Movie We Do Not Speak Of, has not breached our borders in many years (for some…never). We do NOT go into IT’S plot holes and  IT does NOT come to our homes and give us face spankings.. like that one scene with Adrian Brody…that is a face thirsty for a slaps.

It is a truce.  Yet, here we are…sacks in hand.

We are grateful for the time we have been given.

haha! I love you Lucius. I love you more than the sun and moon together!

HAHA! crushed!

Life is long and love is deep…damn…now I want to cry.

Where do they get their top 40 Village songs?

Hey Lucius…I’m a lush and you don’t talk…just like my dead son.

oh..she blind!

Let’s play a game of “grab the stick and get whacked!.”

A blind girl and a boy who likes to hit with sticks run to the hills to meet the quite one.

Red is bad. Yellow is good.

Some people have a haze…purple haze?

“You run like a boy…in case you can’t see it….oh wait.”

Ivy got a crush on Lucius!

Look…Lucius don’t think stuff is funny.

Berry…the bad color!

Meanwhile, Down at the Resting Rock.

Mom just laid down the nasty truth about Daddy and Town.

This place is full of secrets ma!

Somebody likes Mom…he never touches you…would that make Ivy my sister? can we still make babies? This is a small village with not many options. That is why I really want to go to town.

I got on my village poncho! Time to face those who we do not speak of.

Oh hi…I’m just blind and playing a night game outside…cause it is always night for me.

Noah needs medicine that will help him hold still.

Kitty is giddy for love!

She wants to marry the shirt guy…maybe you could pick him up some more shirts while you are in town…if you don’t die.

Oh snap! That ain’t Lucius…Thanks for the Jump Scare Mr. Night.

Noah has one of them “slap me faces”

Uh…that is scary. Night is always great at showing you just enough to scare the pants out of you visually.

She is serious about waiting for Lucius.

Damn I just got chills when he grabbed her hand to save her….and the music swells.

Gee…a note…I wonder who wrote a note…could it be Lucius the village note writer? yep.

So much shame!! shame…shame… I knew that kid was no good.

Could someone please come get Noah…thank you!

Well that was fun…now let’s go outside and eat at the big tables….”we are grateful…for the time we have been given.”

One of the most beautiful romantic scenes in any movie. Man M. Night is the man.

Aww…that went well…Sisters are cool with each other…doubtful.

Let’s see how the boys fair. Nope…not so good.

That was super effective…totally freaky…so quiet…no screaming. Is that more realistic?

Noah has been bad.

Oh wow…did you know we are full of the bad color?

An accident? Yeah…Lucius fell on a knife…like 20 times.

Mr. Walker!!! Mr. Walker!!

Thoughts and prayers.

Uh oh…Noah gets a face spanking.

Ivy and her merry band of two. All in Yellow. Kiss a fellow.

I got a bag of rocks pa!

Christop is like…nah! Why ain’t I never heard of no safe rocks! and why am I wearing this yellow…I don’t even like yellow!

an hour in…and the truth will set you free!!

Have fun Ivy. I’m gone.

The ceremony of meat! Not the ceremony of meet!

Damn you elders!

They are making some good points…but I’m mad as hell at them for lying to me.

and now I’m in a hole. Thanks a lot ya pansy boys.

Love will find a way! or die trying! sometimes that way is throwing rocks.

Man. these are the shittiest elders ever. Lie to their kids their entire lives…then send a blind girl out to head to the village.

So we are still going on the idea that there could be evil in the woods…because…once there was evil.

If that thing suddenly runs at us…EEEEK

Why doesn’t anyone ever dress up as the bad creature in this movie?

These elders are the worst elders ever.

Oh I know…let’s hide the extra monster costumes under the floorboards. by the way…that is some high quality monster garb for the 1800s

Noah got what Noah got

Lucius is thinking “I feel very stabbed right now.”

Screw this safe color crap!

We have a lot of secrets here in The Village.

Time to recap…in case you missed it. Here is all the shit we said that you missed.

Please return to your vehicle? Do you see a vehicle?

I am from “The Woods.”

Oh hey…listen to tall this depressing news…cause now you want to live in The Village

Hey…it’s the director.

Hey Jay…where is the maintenance ladder?

She’s crying cause she knows her son is a wussy and got beat by a blind girl.

Hey I know! We have told a bunch of lies that ended poorly…let’s tell some more lies! This is working out great!

Lucius probably died.

 

 

Dreamcatcher (2003) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi,

Greetings human, I am Dudley Duddits of the  Space Mounties and I am in pursuit of Donnie Duddits. He’s….uh…how do you humans say…special?

Apparently, he has emotionally attached himself to a cartoon dog with a speech impediment and hopes to endear himself to you humans by taking on these properties. Wow, this is more complicated than necessary.

Anywho, have you encountered such a being?

Also, did you know, it’s butt weasel season? Be sure to cover your orifices human.

Coincidently, we have been monitoring your people…and I have a friendly bet going with the crew.

if it is bestiality when a human attempts to mate with an animal…gross by the way…is it then called me-stiality when one attempts to please oneself? The Galaxy wants to know.

Geez, how much Oxy and Day time TV was King watching when he wrote this. Kiss my bender.

Writing your name in the snow….dick chomp!

Fire to the crotch is the only way to stop those things.

Mighty Mouse is on the way!

Beaver had nothing in his head.

 

Pete knows Mr. Gray is a bond Villian.

whisper messages while talking. Repeat emphasis?

The red stuff looks like rust for organics.

He used Beaves catchphrase.

Did he not notice the dead man in the tub?

Oh. They lay eggs…really gross eggs.

The Electric Horseman (1979) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi, this week’s movie is about a horse (a fricken’ horse) and his man. A horseman.

Why a horse movie you may ask? I’ll tell you why we watched this dumbass horse movie, because I made the mistake of revealing to my friends (and the Internet), my distrust for these muscle bound beasts of burden with brains the size of a human child’s brain. Brains by the way which horses  use to calculate how long they have to wait before they can stop pretending to be your friend and start kicking your ass into the ground!

Puny human! You have hoof holes for a face now. Let’s get ice cream! Look at me I’ve got the brain of a 5 years old with the body of a killer! I’m in your kitchen. (Neigh, Neigh) Unpredictable.

Anywho, I hope you enjoy my displeasure.

The Electric Horseman (1979) – Like every Willie Nelson cowboy song ever in one movie. Toast, Bacon…eggs…EGGS!

SHOW NOTES

Shhh…tranquil! Damnit Willie. You are gonna scare off the asshole horse.

That golfer looks like he took a shot to the nuts!

1969! Buckle Trophy. What were those made of?

My heroes have always been cowboys? How come?

Uh oh…broke the shoulder.

Now is the part of the song where we play weird instruments…and a harmonica.

Whose magazine rack is that.

Mustache…no mustache…stache…no stache

Ranch Breakfast…it’s full of cow shit.

Chicken Livers 79 cents!

Ahhh…he is like a byline now. Things went from Buckles to Bunk.

Sydney Pollack!

Like pushing boots on a drunk rodeo star…

My silky shirt is pinching my man chest.

Our HalfTime Theme of Champions of the world…or “look what we dug up.”

Ohh…the horse is electric!

Hey kids! Do you like cereal? I have cereal! and booze! Mostly booze.

On the ground again.

Momma don’t let your babies grow up to be drunk cowboys.

Ranch Breakfast makes you explode with energy. Toast, Bacon, Eggs and More Toast and Bacon and Meatloaf and Olives…oh and my nuts.

Kind of creepy…riding Sonny Steele ride on with kids. I can ride my own horse old man.

Ampco does everything.

We need some Michelob

Nothing worse than little Venus.+

Willie Nelson, you can’t sing your song you sing in real life as a character in a movie! Breaking me.

What the hell…how am I down on the field when I am right here…how drunk am i right now?

You just got replaced by a stand in.

Butt Broderick?

Indians make watchbands?

Is this movie all cowboy songs by Willie Nelson? No wonder they hired him. Probably got a hell of a deal on the music.

What’s that horse doing here in the parking lot?

Tequila Factory?

Foggy Taints wife?

Don’t tell no jokes and don’t lift no skirts.

5 Times rodeo champ…now selling cereal.

A little bute.

Your horse is stoned…and I’m drunk. We could party.

“Ain’t that right Rising Star!”

This weird ass Cowboy Con.

“The mean question lady.”

Elevating our anti-hero by introducing an even eviler guy(s)

Come on. I was just kidding. I don’t want a divorce.

Signing divorce papers in a bar in Vegas. Happens every five minute.

uh. Disco Magic! Listen to the funky sound….what…no Willie Nelson?

Stone Cold Sober.

If the horse was hurt. Wouldn’t it have been more humane to just shoot the horse. Instead of riding it through the Casino and then down the streets of Vegas.

People cheer for any weird shit riding through Vegas…”yeah…this is normal!” Cheer!

Hi, I’m Willie Nelson. I sing about horses and cowboys.

Just temporarily sterile. It goes away.

One Drunken Cowboy can take down a corporation.

Ampco primary concern is the health of the horse?

Investigative reporter.  Let’s check the tape.

This Cowboy can’t stop stealing stuff!? Or did he borrow from Gus?

Horse in an RV making meth. Breaking Cowboy

What kind of horse voodoo is he working.

Gus is an odd bird.

“I work for television.” The whole damn thing?

That is a big bag of something she is sitting on.

This movie has some really hard cuts. One minute she is sitting on a giant bag of something talking to Gus during the day. The next minute she is getting punched in the face at night?

When cats sneak up on Robert Redford he punches them in the face. He likes horses.

You want information? It’s 1979. Go to the library.

12 Million dollar horse

Welcome to my cowboy sauna. It’s dark and full of beans.

Captured horse thief ain’t no story.

Watching some Mr. Magoo

This movie should be titled “I’m calling your bluff.” Cutting tires. Walking out.

He’s not a mean drunk! He’s just a drunk. How dare you defame my anti-hero!

Pinball Sheriff

hehe…do people still get off on dirty phone calls?

Since when does a corporation track someone like the FBI?

Damn she brought all the gear. Typical woman trope…high heels in the nature.

They would have the horse wearing short pants and smoking cigars.

Why is Redford so worried about the horse being sterile.

I like how he gave her the best speech ever before the camera was rolling. Then the worst speech ever while rolling.

Damn that woman! That’s why I left her…her and her big…

What is the letter? It’s got a stamp

Television must not pay a lot in 1979

KSOT.

RimRock Canyon in Utah.

A place that horses like; Rim Rock Canyon.

WHAT’S IN THE LETTER!

He’s a cereal cowboy.

Going to St. George…unless they moved the road.

There is a cop convention in town. A COP CONVENTION!

Ahh…the “I’m coming along” trope.

Harmonica musical

Using a cowboy hat to hide to hide when they are looking for a cowboy.

Seems reasonable. Horse can outrun cop cars and motorcycles…cause a horse has at least…1 horsepower.

Late 70s chase music was always funk…it literally sounds like every episode of C.H.I.P.S

Ok genius…you caught up with the guy on the horse on your motorcycle. Now what? Gonna bring him down?

Was it standard for cops to wear helmets in the cars during possible pursuit situations during the late 70s?

Gee I wonder if one of these cop cars will end up on top of the other cop car? bump… Well I’ll be damned.

She captured the part he didn’t know she was shooting.

Cowboys love open cans of beans. Just lay them around like decoration.

We are walking…with our feet.

No way can you eat that many beans and expect to make out city folk.

Gawd I want to be GUS. “I’m in the kitchen!” “My Wild Blue Yonder! I bought it in Elko!”

Wilfred good guy.

Sonny Steele. NORMAN!

Oh please tell me Randy is going to sing the National Anthem!

That poor horse. That poor mean horse.

My name is Alice. Alice and Norman.

Poor Diana Ross. Here name is all over this movie. Never seen her once. She’s the Chick in the bucket.

That kiss tastes like pills and beans.

Morning? Where did you get cheese?

Norman get the “getting up medal.”

Trope. Lady Luggage. Time to lighted the load.

Treating each other like children. It’s how relationships work.

You can name anything…anything…like they did with their names.

Get on this horse lady!

Caller…turn down your radio

“Is this Russian?” I think he may be illiterate. Is that what we are implying.

People love rebel cereal. Even though the profits go to the company.

Mom gone to get Butane Louise.

Ask a kid how much to make a call. “One Dollar!”

If that kid can read her note then my theory that Norman is illiterate may have merit. I guess he could have vision troubles…but he had trouble seeing at all in her prescription glasses. But…wait…he read the script earlier in the movie. Maybe he just has a little vision problem…or maybe he is crazy.

A 3 day trip.

You bastard! You lied to me!

You sent that sterile race horse out to fight the mares! Foool!

ahh…look…they are coming to great him. Nope!

Wait…is he coming or is he going…how many horses am I looking at right now!

Alright! A slow version of a cowboy song.

A donut with a candle in it? That is something for the road?

Haha…she ain’t got no bags bus man.

Ampco needs a new logo? Cause it was a horse. What they got now?

I’m just a cowboy in a modern world.

 

Can’t Buy Me Love (1987) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi! Patrick Dempsey “No Talent” Agency circa late 80s, how may I destroy your childhood memories today?

oh, you say you have a role for a sex crazed high school senior or college freshman who is kind of dorky but the ladies find him dreamy despite his low social status and penchant for low paying jobs like mowing lawns and delivering pizza?

Yeah we got those here. We got a whole shit can of those here. We shave them once a day and anything below the eyebrows gets a waxing. The ladies love it! Young and old.

Well here is as an inappropriate time as any to talk about money. Dempsey is going to need somewhere between .35 cents and 200 dollars for his services. You can pay that in cash or hats.

While, money can’t buy you love, hats can buy you a Dempsey.

Yes we take Neiman Marcus and Sam Goody’s. I mean it is the late 80s after all and Goody Got It.

Severe.

Project X (1987) – Show Notes

Intro:

Oh hi and welcome Cadets to  Project X or as I like to call it Project “What Could Possibly Go Wrong.” Here we have assembled an elite force of Air Force pilots to train a team of carefully vetted primates who we will be working with to test the effects of radiation exposure on pilots in case of a second strike scenario.

Just kidding, we actually gathered the Bad News Bears of flying military personnel to train some chimps picked by a guy on a dock somewhere… what was wearing a “sorting hat.” We then takes those chimps and have them fly through some “bad juju” complete with a Jack In The Box style Global Thermal Nuclear Device that I use to heat my coffee. Shall we play a game? Goliath, my coffee is getting cold. Give it 2 more rads, ya damn dirty ape.

Aim High!

Show Notes:

Roll that beautiful stock footage!

Poomba!

That is one serious giraffe. Shoo…fly away bird

Do you ever feel like a giraffe is staring at you?

I know what you did last summer

Meanwhile down at the “Apes for Ants” cafe.

“eat the bug off my stick! eat it! ”

It’s a brush full of  men!

‘Don’t shock the monkey! Cause he’s an ape!”

James Horner does the music! it’s been a while!

Let’s make a deal with the overly enthusiastic  animal poacher.

Who is this guy? The monkey whisperer? The Calaban of apes….he’s the sorting man. Kind of reminds me of Curious George and the man in the banana suit…HAT!

Aww…look how young…no…not the ape… Helen Hunt.

gif by Scott Johnson

Virgil.

This means apple…also, pointing to this apple means apple.

Is it a good idea to eat the monkey’s apple?

Why does the sign for apple look like “She’s abusing me in the face officer.”

“What time is it?” Half past a freckle on a monkey’s ass.

Virgil wants to fly! Just like back at the “I’m Ape For Ants Cafe”

Wonder if that is a real monkey making noises or if it is Helen Hunt?

“No, it’s not play time.” This movie could be subtitled that. Space X: It’s Not Play Time.

gif by Scott Johnson

That is not a real clock dude….what is the sign for “dumbass.”

Virgil is hairy; not stupid.

The National Health Foundation.

Man, I thought cats were expensive. 15k to buy. 10k yearly upkeep.

“Virgil, Fly…like bird…like in Wizard of Oz. Cept with Apes. Why should monkeys have all the fun. Helen Hunt kind of looks like the wicked witch.”

How convenient…Virgil joins the air force. The monkey dreams of flying one day…joins the air force…oh c’mon!

Them monkey are excited to see Virgil. FRESH MEAT!

They ain’t ever going to let him fly again…not in that shirt.

Bueller doesn’t seem like a screw up. wait..

Cue the silly music.

Rule: pound for pound 7 times stronger than us.

“No funny stuff mister” – Do we still say that?

gif by Scott Johnson

Clapping monkey doesn’t know when to clap. “Yay! oh wait…YAY!”

up…up…

Lady with the blond hair…all lady with blond hair look the same to Virgil.

What is Broderick mopping? Is it ape pee? I hope it’s ape pee. or is Broderick sort of the Clarice in this situation. Whenever you walks by the cage/cells Goofy throws ape goo at him.

Moon is in the seventh house but I’m still knocking on the 6th door. Pretty sure that is a rock ballad from the 70s

Circus Chimp. They are the worst. Smoking. Trying to get me to win a prize for my pretty lady.

Humans are stupid. End sentence

captured by Scott Johnson

Thank goodness for sign language lady from United Way who quickly taught Broderick basic sign language.

I don’t believe it! You must have been a united way ape!

dumbass…what did he expect the monkey to be signing. Of course he is signed out. He’s in a cage…you think he is going to be signing “Penthouse Magazine?” That is a totally different gesture.

A new girl in the neighborhood! Let us out…what is the sign for making it like a couple of apes?

gif by Scott Johnson

All of this sign language could been resolved with pointing. Teach an ape to point.

Virgil is making friends with everyone! He’s fulfilling all of the ape desires!  Virgil knows all…he even knows Broderick wants to fly. He’s more than smart..he’s the wishmaster.

He’s an ape genie.

The Joy Of Signing.  We’ve all read it?

Diamond shaped smile ape freaks me out. Make my Diamond face.

great…now my nickname is razzleberry. What would be your Ape Nick name?

Maybe we rename Goofy to Homicidal maniac.

gif by Brian Dunaway

Virgil just got his blue belt…err…collar…TOTALLY not ape slaves.

Pretty sure kissing your trainee is frowned upon. That is like teacher/student loving right there…and that is wrong…right there.

What happened to Watts? Man in the Bucket.

Blue Beard. Walking the mile…walking the ape/chimp mile.

 

Before drones…apes were our best bet to mitigate human losses?

“Trainer evacuate chamber.” – me when playing pokemon go and taking a poo

Slow motion staring ape is scary as hell.

mmm…that’s some good radiated coffee. “How many rads is this coffee son? Give it two more rads would ja”

gif by Brian Dunaway

“Lord of the Apes.”

gif by Scott Johnson

Giving our Apes cute nicknames was probably not a good idea. Unless you want to call them things like Chicken Nuggets. Bag of Popcorn. Defrost.

Come on Virgil. Straighten up…You are making it so easy for me  to want to zap fry you Virgil.

Jimmy fell for the oldest trick in the book…”lemmie see your BIC pen for a minute. GO GET IT BOY!”

“Red Collar equals gurney nap.” – Virgil’s mind

Virgil is a tattletale! “GUESS WHAT I SAW! Hoo hoo hoo! Screech! Gurney Naps For All! hoo hoo hoo”

Trope/True – Old white men are evil.

Not the red neck! Anything but the red neck Jimmy!

Movie Logic: Cause I learned sign language…I am smart at other things as well. I am practically human now.

No way if you break into a room of your superiors and run your mouth do you not get thrown in the brigg.

Off Hour Entry – EpPPpppPpp

Apes stakes good! <- what?

“Way to go Jimmy…we had everything under control until you set off the alarm. Now our sky light escape is ruined Jimmy…Ruined!” – Virgil Ape

Who was Goofy calling on the phone? “Hello, I would like 2 dozen pizzas delivered to the lab the air force base.”

Goofy Bird to you Doctor!

Does Clappy have a nickname…cause I’m calling him Clappy.

Oh how the tables have turned. Good thing we have guns in the locker room.

Quick. Throw away that soda and pizza plate! The doc is here!

Lights Off…Light on…Lights Off….sure I fly experimental planes all day…but this….Lights on…Lights off…this satisfies my OCD…Lights on…Lights off.

…and you wonder why we lock up apes…look what happens when you let them out…they go all Planet of the apes on ya!

Uh oh…you released the radiation pod you fools!

Well..that is what happens when you go all 2001 on the radiation pod Goliath

You want a cig Goliath? Too bad Spock face. Now live short and die.

Virgil is way smarter than Goliath. Cause…sign language!

What is the end game here? You are still a bunch of monkey’s in a plane. It’s not like the Air force is going to just let you go.

How much gas did that plane have? like a gallon. Monkey’s never had to fuel up in the SIM.

“Sir the bottom is too soft.” – please capture audio Scott!

You are free Slave Apes…now form a society of intellectual apes and enslave us humans one day.

Monkey names first in the credits. What about the humans!

Pretty sure this is how Planet of the apes starts.

Oh hi!

That’s right your honor. I was on Elm street just trying to sell my new invention: The Finger Knife Glove when all these parents start coming at me.

Anywho, you see my Finger Knife Glove is going to revolutionize the cutlery industry. It’s going to do for the kitchen… what indoor plumbing did for shitting.

Nightmare on Elm Street (1984) – Like a giant pimple on your forehead forever captured on celluloid. For Pete’s sake Nancy, pop that thing!

SHOW NOTES:

 

That places looks like tetanus (Tet-Anus)

Lamb in the halls..metaphorical dude! RUN

You can see through here nightgown. Probably on purpose.

This is a pretty complicated shot with all the shadows and smoke? Right? Maybe. Who is the CinnamonTographer?

This music and effects are abrasive. Intentionally. I wonder if they used one of them horror music homemade dealies.

Run girl…run!

Why is it always in the boiler room? Perhaps they will tell us more about the boiler room later in the movie?

Freddie pops up with laser shot noises. pew pew pew

It was just a dream mamma!

Mamma is getting some and by some I mean some of that old man spaghetti.

The Freddie song! 1-2…Freddie’s coming for you….3-4… shhh…I’m trying to see if I can remember it from my childhood! 3-4 Better lock the door. 5-6 Crucifix.  7-8 Something something about don’t be late. 9-10 Freddie’s creeping again. 11-12 You’re out of bed? Twelve…belve…shit….

OGR 805 – Johnny (Glen) is driving an old convertible…and man can he hop!

gif by Scott Johnson

“I had a hard on when I woke up this morning.” Thanks Glenn…so does 90% of the male population in high school…give that man a boner prize.

Up yours with a toilet what?!?

“Tell yourself it’s just a dream and you wake up.” Works for Depp. So not true.

WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU ARE HAVING A NIGHTMARE? I don’t dream bitches. I killed the sandman a long time ago. NEVER SLEEP!

Got a cousin who lives near the airport…cousin Barry.

When your jambox Foley work is subpar. You are BUSTED. Also, Glen’s mom is the second clueless parent so far. Tina’s mom being the first.

Creepy music makes a creepy story creepy. finger-knives! screee

Nike Sweater Vest pull over…you deserve to die Johnny ‘Glen’ Depp

Kittie Kittie. Chow Chow Chow. (was that a thing? I think I remember a commercial.) Chow Mix?

Hey Rod. You are a dick…and did you forgot to button your shirt up buddy. Nobody wants to see your happy trail.

A sleepover date? Pretty sure that is not a thing. I guess we got away with it from time to time. Did you guys?

Trope…girls gotta stick up for one another…especially when she is dating a creep…always cramps the good guys style.

Ahhh…listening to others have sex…best time. Have you ever had to listen to sex. What did you do?

I guess Tina wanted to wander down Rod’s happy trail after all. TINA MUST DIE.

Nice effect! What a magic trick! Freddie pushing through and then it’s solid.

I think I will go outside in only my shirty-shirt when someone whisper yells my name.

eeek! Garbage pale kids are coming for you? or Oscar the grouch? All we have are those plastic roller trash cans now. I miss the old noisy aluminum cans of my childhood. You know the ones…the ones that were booby traps for late night burglars to bumble over…or possibly you if you are trying to sneak away.

This is god? Your right glove? what do you call left hand. The left hand of god? The lefty. The other hand. Not god?

What’s your body made of? Maggots and Freon?

Do not bring Freddie back with you….do not do it…it sounds like a good plan…but no.

Tidy Whitties on an Italian?

Oh this is getting bloody Tina. No Tina…not on the walls!

Dad is the police chief.

I see why Nancy is so screwed up now. Her mom is an alcoholic and her dad is the Sgt.

Did we ever do that? Show dead arms hanging off gurneys on TV? Maybe in the 70s…but surely not in the 80s!

We liked big buttoned collars in the 80s. The more drunk you are…the bigger buttons you need.

Jump Scare. Rod loves to surprise people. He’s the real villain here.

Maybe if Barry buttoned his shirt once in a while we wouldn’t have to arrest him.

“Look a switchblade!” – Cop One says with surprise.

Nancy don’t wanna sleep! Nancy sleep.

“Where’s your pass! Screw your pass!” – Breaking the law!

Tina’s back…in a body bag! That is a lot of blood in that body bag BTW

It says NO STUDENTS ALLOWED Nancy! Roaming the halls with no pass as well. You are so going to get at least 2 demerits. Did you get demerits in school? If you got 10…that was a paddling.

Freddie consists of green mucus and maggots. mmm.

eeeek! It was all a nightmare. Also, my teacher is the hippie medium from Insidious I believe. She can’t get out of the horror racket. It chewed her up.

Freddie gave Nancy a hickey? Nope…it’s a burn.

Hate those inflatable bath pillows.  Don’t fall asleep in the tub…it happens all the time…well why did you give me this ugly bath pillow if you didn’t want me to sleep.

“Don’t fall asleep in the tub….but here is a pillow. A gross inflatable fungus ridden pillow…NOW DON’T FALL ASLEEP!”

Mom is going to turn down my bed for me….maybe if you had of turned dad down Dad once in a while I wouldn’t have to exist.

Let’s take some Stay Awake and watch some scary movies to avoid nightmares. Thumbs Up!

Nancy…what is that knot on your forehead? Zit cream stat!

Oh god I look 20 years old…like that is a bad thing. I no longer like Nancy.

Johnny Depp and Nancy are teeth twins.

You stay awake (guard) while I nap. WHAT, YOU FELL ASLEEP!

5th precinct sucks.

1-2…I’m watching you.

you get to star most of the movie in a body bag Tina. Sorry about your luck.

Those stepping into the paint buckets full of glue and oatmeal on the steps is bad effects. I get what they were going for. It failed. Good try though

No my favorite Pillow!!! Feathers are everywhere!

Glen…you had one job…

Mom has all the sexy lingerie. Is she a stay at home prostitute?

Glen done fell asleep on the stoop. You just know it…he’s like a narcoleptic. Wasn’t that a thing in Dream Warriors? Part 3?

“We have reason to believe….” – Glenn….do you think you are a cop? Why are you talking like that son.

Mom has a plan. A very bad plan. It probably involves Vodka.

Dad knows more than he is saying. Spit it out dad!

Katja Sleep Study. This ought to go over well.

They put that probe right on Nancy’s forehead pimple.

Dr. Roger Rabbit. Puhhhlease Freddy…

Look what I got! I got his hat…I hope his head is cold in scary dream world. Dick.

It’s real mom…touch it….PSYKE! NOPE…YOU CAN’T TOUCH IT!

Fred Krueger…it’s in the hat mom…and so are his old gross man hairs..

Nancy is going gray

Back when you could back hand your kids and not go to jail.

Noooo! Not the booze Nancy!. It’s ok…I have more…everywhere in the house apparently.

Dream Skills…I got mad dream skills.

Rules! Will they use them?

Glen: You ever read about the Balinese way of dreaming?
Nancy: No.
Glen: They got a whole system they call “dream skills”. So, if you have a nightmare, for instance like falling, right?
Nancy: Yeah.
Glen: Instead of screaming and getting nuts, you say, okay, I’m gonna make up my mind that I fall into a magic world where I can get something special, like a poem or song. They get all their art literature from dreams. Just wake up and write it down. Dream skills.
Nancy: And what if they meet a monster in their dream? Then what?
Glen: They turn their back on it. Takes away its energy, and it disappears.
Nancy: What happens if they don’t do that?
Glen: I guess those people don’t wake up to tell what happens.

Dream Skills. I got booby trap skills!

Bars on the windows…mom works fast. I mean like in a few hours she barred that whole place up.

Even put bars on the door window…like you could crawl through that.

That moment when mom asks you to go to the cellar with her.

A filthy child murderer.  The Lawyers got fat and the judges got famous.

YOU KEPT HIS KNIVES! YOU KEPT HIS KNIVES! Don’t worry…mommy killed him.

Cut off shirts! ahhhh yeah! Thanks for the abs Glen.

Prisoner of Zendor? Zendar? Prisoner of Zenda!

7th Day of no sleep…11 is the record. -Nancy Says…well you got a timeline on your hands.

Whatever you do…Don’t Fall Asleep… CUT…oh yeah…that is so going in the trailer.

Miss Nude America…is that his mom or his Grandma?

Where the hell did Nancy have that Coffee Pot? it’s freaking plugged in and brewed!

No way is that Johnny Depp’s dad.

“You know what I think…I think that girl is a lunatic.” Glen’s Dad

Nancy done took so many pills she is a free bleeder. or is it the coffee.

How much Vodka does mom have stashed. I see where Nancy learned to hide beverages now.

Glenn’s dad is kind of a dick…and he is wearing some kind of cult necklace pendent.

Fred has a phone? Uh…yes…Hello…this is Fred.

Do you remember the DJ Jazzy Jeff and Fresh Prince. Nightmare on my street?

 

Never. Ever. Ever. Answer a phone that is ripped out of the wall.

That phone has a tongue and it wants to lick you.

That poor phone…

Locked! Locked! Locked!

Who sleeps with a TV on their crotch?

Glenn got surcked into a bed hole.

That is a lot of blood.. Glenn is made of blood. like a whole trash can full. maybe 2.

Why did you call an ambulance? Haha…you don’t need a stretcher…you need a mop.

Hey papa…wave papa…hey papa.

How does Nancy know 20 minutes is the timeline? RULE

Is that a lifesaver? Butterscotch I hope?

Soooo…in 20 minutes time…she macgyvered booby traps…comforted mom.. 10 minutes…. fell asleep…found fred and return.

What is in that ambulance? that they need a siren. Blood for the bloodbank?

That cellar has everything. Dogs playing poker. Freddie’s knife glove. oooh…Vodka! Freddie’s Basement.

In the afterlife.. Fred collects souls

Everybody labels their stuff in this movie. Fred’s Hat. Glenn’s Headphones. Hall Monitor!

You my bitch now Freddie!!

Nancy “Home Aloned” Freddie

“Get my dad asshole!” – Nancy

Clueless parents…Clueless cops…

I would love to see all the Freddie falls.

“Daddy I did it!”

Burning foot prints…that is bad ass.

how many bed deaths are there?

What…you just saw your ex-wife get sucked into the abyss and you are going to leave your daughter in that room?

Wait…did she beat Freddie or did he beat her? Is Nancy dead?

I forgot about this ending! Is she still dreaming! Will I have to watch Part 2 to know?

Nightmare done.

You know….one of them movies.

Also, did you ever consider: this is a movie about a one-eyed Snake being inserted into a dirty hole who is just trying to pull out before his head explodes? Dirty Carpenter is always dirty. 400%

Did Carpenter write/perform this music….very early 80s TV

1988 sucked! 400 Percent! That sounds like a lot!

They built a wall around Manhattan. Trump would love to build a wall around Manhattan.

Statue of Liberty Security Control.

One rule: You go in…You don’t come out

Twin Tower still stood!

Interesting dept of field for long shot. Matte Painting Minatures?

You have 10 seconds on your home made float. I counted like 8 seconds. What was that float made of? Propane and propane accessories?

2 in the water dead….2 confirmed….very well.

This is Remy.

LISC Liberty Island Security Control.

Chopper 8 needs ome acction.

USPF?  We got 3 guards walking a Mr. Pliskin.

So this is an underground facitory?

The happiest Cabaret with Kazoos and Pianos ever. at least Ernest is having a good time.

“Hey you don’t wanna walk around down there snake..” – Something that has never been said before.

Hey, I just realized….Snake Pliskin on has one good eye. That makes him a one eyed snake.

Hey nice boots chief…I’m walking

Ernest P. Whorl is the President?

President is easy to find. He’s in a big red egg. Unless he left the egg…in which case you are screwed.

A lot of people running around like roaches before our oblivious hero.

Black Tank Top / Camo Leotrads and Ski boots.

I like how Carpenter plays with the running animals as danger approaches. More like rats or roaches scurring
