1. Pizza made by Amanda and Ryan
2. Chips and pop
3. Pudding and neapolitan ice cream (I'd forgotten how good that stuff is)
4. Michael Jackson: The Experience (I'm pretty awesome at the Thriller zombie parts)
5. The 'Burbs starring Tom Hanks and a little role for '80s heartthrob Corey Feldman as nosy neighbour kid, Ricky Butler (great pick, Amanda!)
I can honestly say that The 'Burbs was one of my favourite movies growing up and I've seen it a lot. A quiet suburban neighbourhood is messed up when a creepy new family moves into the cul-de-sac. Murder and mayhem ensue...or do they? Not to be missed are some classic Tom Hanks freak out moments and Corey Feldman's leather jacket.
Here's the trailer:
What I am extremely excited to share is actually one of the shorts that was played before the movie. We have a new tradition of showing the best of what we know on YouTube or whatever before we start our movie. A little catch up, if you will, with popular culture and the videos that are currently making us laugh. No responses from guests allowed, only the movie-chooser gets to pick shorts, which keeps the night from devolving into an all-out YouTube party...most of the time.
This one was introduced to Ryan and Amanda by some friends of theirs (who also have great MJ dance moves) and if you've been to Portland, OR, I'm sure you'll recognize the truth in it. I'm excited to see Portlandia now. I really love Portland and I'm just gonna put this video on the list of reasons I wish I could live there. "Portland is a city where young people go to retire." Seems true to me. Enjoy.
