Apropos of nothing ...

... you guys know what a great movie is? I'll tell you: Midnight Madness.

Made in 1980, one of the dozens and dozens of movies I've seen dozens of times* because my family had HBO** in the early going, but y'all -- OK, so I haven't seen it since at least 1988, but it was good! Remember Michael J. Fox, all misunderstood & whiny? And how all the teams wore color-coordinated sweatshirts in that bulky 80s polyester cut? And FAGABEEFE? And "SomeWHERE ... in the Bonaventure Hotel!"?


*Including but not limited to: Looker, Just One of the Guys, Class, Turk 182, Twilight Zone: The Movie, April Fool's Day, Valley Girl, Savannah Smiles, How I Got Into College, Beastmaster, Secret of NIMH, Eddie and the Cruisers, Superman III, Arthur, and V (a ... soccer movie? ... starring Sylvester Stallone? I think?).

**Horrible Body Odor! HA ha! O that never gets old!!!!

Oh my god! Yes! Me too, on all counts... I remember one clue was nestled in a waitress's rack, right?

Sarah Brown: Oh, riiiiight! Forgot about that one! Ahh, the 80s and their innocent profusion of rack shots ...

bonnjill: Beastmaster scared the LIVING JESUS COCOAPUFFS OUT OF ME. The thing with the glowworms in the ears? AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHH! WORST PHOBIA OF LIFE!

Holy Crap I love that movie. Got it on VHS and everything. Made me love fat girls and mopeds equally.
