Bigfoot, Pot, & Camping

These are three main topics in the movie Drawing Flies. This is one of the movies to be released by View askew Production. It is shot in black and white, which makes it more interesting to me. Drawing Flies stars Jason Lee as Donner, and Jason Mewes as Az. It tells the story of the two of them and their roommates.
How do Bigfoot, Pot, & Camping come into play? Bigfoot comes into play, because Donner watches an episode of the Twilight Zone, which makes a mention to bigfoot, and this is where the camping comes into play in the movie. It comes into play because Donner (Lee) cons everyone to go so he could find Bigfoot. Camping also comes into play because, Donner, Az, four of their roommates, didn't get their welfare checks that day. Since Donner saw that one episode, he decides that he wants to go find Bigfoot, and cons his roommates to go because his uncle has "a cabin in the woods." They start smoking pot on the trip so that ay they do not get bored on the trip with Donner.
I'll leave the ending out, but one thing this movie teaches us is: "A monster is a terrible thing to waste!"

Masters of the Universe

Yes, I know that its been a while since I've last posted a blog entry. The last movie that I wound up watching was Masters of the Universe. This movie is an old 1980s movie that is so horrible, that it is great in a sense. There are many things that make this movie great. Don't get me wrong, there are better movies out there than this, but this movie reminds me of my childhood.
Let me ask you this. How many times do you get to see Dolph Lundgren run around in a fur covered speedo, leather straps, and a cape? HUH, HUH, HUH????? Bet you don't have an answer to that now do you? There are many more reasons why I like this movie, other than it bringing back memories of childhood. I mean most of the characters from the tv show were in the movie, but there could have been more.
Again, I know that this movie is bad, but I enjoy it anyway.
