"A New York Treasure" --Village Voice

Million Dollar Movie


Movie Posters that scared me as a kid.

Scared me so much I didn’t see the movies until much later.

AB! My cousing had that Warriors poster in our basement when I was a kid..used to scare the hell out of me! Such an awesome movie. Scanners too, nobody could touch Cronenberg back in those days. Check out "The Brood" for some seriously creepy stuff...

I need to see Altered States again, saw it years ago and can't remember...

[1] Altered States is a seriously weird film. Chayefsky and Ken Russell did NOT get along, but Russell was contractually obligated to not change a word of Paddy's script. Makes for some odd direction. It's all worth it for the young Blair Brown. Hubba hubba.

"Warriors, come and play-ee-aaay." Clicking the nipper beer bottles between three fingers.

Fantastic movie for the times and a teenage boy. But not scary at all to me. Don't get that part. Exciting, yes. Scary, no. Maybe you guys were much younger. The original Friday the 13th. That was scary.

[1] Conenberg's "Spider". Freaky, scary. Check it out.

[3] I was 5 when it came out! :)

[4] Spider was great. Dead Ringers maybe Cronenberg's best though.

[5] Five?! Ya cheeky twat, ya.

What about "A History of Violence"? That's my favorite. Viggo Mortenson. Ed Harris. Maria Bello in a cheerleader uniform. YOW-za!

[6] amen, brother.

7) Holy cow, Maria Bello is SMOKING HOT.

9 Boatzilla   ~  Nov 5, 2010 9:13 am

[8] Yeah, where's she been lately. All I know of her is ER and that movie.

10 Boatzilla   ~  Nov 5, 2010 9:14 am

Oh, and "World Trade Center." But she wasn't allowed to be hot in that one.

[8] She's no Blair Brown. Also, I was underwhelmed by her not-so-clothed moments in A History of Violence. I mean, I wouldn't kick her off the couch for eatin' crackers...but...ah you get it.
