I want my eyes to bleed again…

Posted in A Retrosepctive, Bleeding Eyes, News with tags , , on November 26, 2010 by The DvS

I was just flicking through the internet, as you do, and stumbled across the sheer horror that I only managed to see once as a child, is being released on DVD for the first time in the UK. Yes, the kingdom united, December the 13th is a day to remember. It’s a day where you will remember my harsh warning when you walk into your local DVD emporium and see the (possibly overpriced) offending item on the shelf. I’m talking about the indescribable events that take place within the world of The Garbage Pail Kids.

The year is 1987. We’re all young little scamps, running around pretending we’re Street Hawks, Airwolves and Knight Riders (even the girls were at it), being tortured by our parent’s dodgy tastes in music when they were drunk (something about Disco Sheep haunts me to this day), and sorting through our collections of Garbage Pail Kids trading cards. How we loved them! A complete gross out parody of the cutesy Cabbage Patch Kids, there’s nothing we enjoyed more than taking our 375+ collection of cards with an overpowering essence of crappy chewing gum into the school yards and impressing others with our Eerie Ernie’s or our Adam Bomb’s.  Then we also discovered you get that essence on your clothes, you will reek all month no matter how hard you wash.

So, again, we go back to the days of how great the video shops were. Being at the age where what you’re collecting is suddenly a movie you had no idea was happening, and there it was right before your very eyes, it instantly demands your attention. Not necessarily your respect because you’re only ten or eleven years old, and making a Blammo is a long way off yet. Yet look, it’s trailer time! imagine this on the front end of your rented video of American Rabbit.

We’re all agreed then that looked bollocks? Great! Then please join me on December the 13th, for I’m going to resurrect the Bleeding Eyes segment, as this cannot be ignored. Windy Winston and Ali Gator are going to be nothing else but HILARIOUS. They were back then, because we really didn’t know better. Maybe that was the best state of mind to employ…

The DvS, five movies he liked from 00-09, and some silly comments afterwards

It’s quite hard making these lists when you think about it. Considering how many films come out a year, and then sifting through a decade’s worth of our circle enjoying about three a year, that left me with thirty films to choose from, because I’m so good at maths. So I’m not picking outrageously epic and predictable choices, I’m just picking out the titles that I really enjoyed over the years. Except one, because it’s an outrageously epic and predictable choice. Onward!

The Count Does the Naughties

A little late I know but here are my Top 5 movies of the last decade.  I did seriously consider not going for the stereotype and instead whacking a list of awesome trashy action flicks… but I realised that wouldn’t be honest.

So, for those who know me, this will be possibly rather obvious, I present to you my selection of 2000 – 2009:

Stacks Movie Moments (reprise)

Posted in A Retrosepctive, The Guest Spot, The Saviour of Blammo on December 30, 2009 by GW Paperstacks

Bwahahaha! I’ve totally taken over Blammo this week! I’ve remembered a few clips that I’d missed, also Jay reminded me that the Eve & Wall-E space walk scene is beautiful and quite right he was too, however we had Wall-E already so I’ve not included that one. The DvS reminded me that “Me, Myself & Irene” was made in 2000, but there are very few good scenes online to post. I had a whole bunch of other clips suggestions, as did The DvS, but sadly we couldn’t find any decent quality youtube links so they’re sadly omitted from this post.

Stack’s greatest movie moments (2000-2009)

Posted in A Retrosepctive, The Guest Spot, The Saviour of Blammo, World Cinema on December 26, 2009 by GW Paperstacks

As hard as it was to make a 3 worst movies list, it has turned out to be even harder for me to think of my favourite movies! Maybe its again something to do with the way I absorb movies, I only half watching them whilst doing other things because I have the attention span of a small child. I can’t think of the “great” movies I’ve watched over the decade, only great moments in movies, so I figured, fuck it, thats actually way better than naming three top movies! I have taken the time to post the scenes as youtube clips making this article both entertaining and giving me enough time to distract you whilst I steal your Chrstmas presents Continue reading

Stacks Movie Moments (Part 2)

Posted in A Retrosepctive, The Guest Spot, The Saviour of Blammo on December 26, 2009 by GW Paperstacks

WordPress doesn’t like too many links in on its posts, so here is the second half of this epic list. I say epic, it’s just stopping me from being bored this Boxing Day whilst all the presents we open appear to be broken.

Stack’s Movie Moments (The Last Part)

Again a small break so WordPress doesn’t have a shitfit. I must point out that these are in no order of preference and the lack of Tarantino is just because at some point we’re going to do a retrospect of his work from this Decade as its all gold.
