I make a distinction between movies that are "good" and those that I enjoy watching repeatedly. While there has to be *some* overlap, there doesn't have to be much. Think about a movie like Schindler's List, which is generally regarded as a well made and "good" movie. It's also not the kind of movie that I'd watch very often given its content.
Contrast that with a movie like Goonies, which isn't going to win awards for writing, directing, etc. However, it's a fun movie that lots of people my age wore out the tape of on the old VCR.
Well, when these movies disappeared, I was angry, but since I was the one to lose them, I had no one to blame but myself. So, I just hit Amazon and ordered used copies. The last of them came yesterday and my collection is back to complete.
The 3 movies in question?
- Shaun of the Dead - Best zombie romantic comedy ever.
- Bubba Ho Tep - Elvis and a black JFK fighting a 4000 year old mummy in a nursing home. What's not to like.
- Strange Brew - Don't like this one, eh? Well, take off, you hoser.
