With the soothing sounds of traffic and outside nonsense, we embark on the perfect Cinco de Mayo movie – Slaughterhouse-Five. I mean, right? Then it’s time for a lengthy discussion (with godawful audio dropouts) about the St. Louis Arch and one hellishly long arm hair. Believe it or not! That corporal. He’ll get back home after the war. He’ll be a big hero. Dames’ll be climbin’ all over him.

Welcome to Movie Night. Every Tuesday Monday night. Or whatever day of the week that we have free.

Remember that string of black comedies by Martin Scorsese in the 1980s? No? Come with us to After Hours. But soon the questions begin to overtake our poor group – is a home run or triple harder to hit? Have you ever had light bulbs delivered unsolicited? Will anyone listen to an hour and a half podcast episode? I said I wanna see a Plaster of Paris bagel and cream cheese paperweight, now cough it up.
Uh oh, a blind pick! Once we get through watching this schlock, we take great joy in beating it up like your average playground bully. For over 30 minutes! But we do learn that a member among us bought THREE penny whistles in Ireland and that there’s a new mechanical bull closer to home. I’m just tying me laces, man.
Welcome to Iran! We’re here for a movie about the making of a movie – A Moment of Innocence – which makes for a difficult and terrifically slow start to this episode. But if you make it out alive, things barely pick up after a half-hour and we start talking about the dead (or nearly dead.) What a nightmare! I can see she’s underlined the good bits.
A classic silent film with an ironically great soundtrack – 1928’s The Passion of Joan of Arc. On the agenda for us this week: Bucket hats of PBR cans, books from Illinois’ Secretary of State, faxes and last name confusion. But have you ever “vamped”? And do you really know what a “kangaroo court” is? That has nothing to do with this trial!
Words never before uttered at Movie Night™: I hate that movie. We move on to creepy institutions like Gary Puckett, downtown car glamor shots and yet another haircut update. But nothing gets the group more animated than a good, ol’-fashioned breadstick bashing. I am a ghost. I am a ghost. I am a ghost.
So many mustaches in Tombstone… but we’re most fond of Val Kilmer’s understated nose decoration. We soon veer off to discuss hibachi karaoke, poorly performed Twitter parody and traveling clowns. Listen, Mr. Kansas Law Dog. Law don’t go around here. Savvy?
The sci-fi trend continues! After seeing Alien, you’ll never eat breakfast the same way again. One of our members recounts her first time buying beer at the liquor store – just hours before Movie Night! Then we pick sides in the lyrics versus music debate. We’ll move in pairs. We’ll go step by step and cut off every bulkhead and every vent until we have it cornered. And then we’ll blow it the fuck out into space!
We’re barely able to discern the difference between 2001 and Moon – but tonight we have a real robot in our midst! Meet Marty, our mopping friend. A solitary member of our group explains how he ran from a cop in his basement workplace and his desire to get into a car accident just to meet a girl. You look like a radioactive tampon… like a banana with a yeast infection.
