Hey Baby Eaters! After the wild Saturday night you had, I hope your not hurtin' too much this afternoon. But, if you are...then we have a pretty decent lineup of films to help you get through your hangover.
Starting things off at 10:30 AM The Fan (1996) is on FX. Solid Tony Scott directed thriller that I enjoy enough. Great cast with De Niro, Wesley Snipes, and a younger Benicio Del Toro, The Fan should make for a good watch to start off your hangover.
In the mood for impending Armageddon? At 11:00 AM SyFy has Asteroid (1997) with the conclusion at 1:00 PM. That's four fucking hours of doom! Originally an NBC TV movie, Asteroid actually won an Emmy, but more importantly, it stars Michael Biehn! The Emmy was actually for FX work, so it doesn't really count, but Biehn does! If this TV ad doesn't make you want to see this four hours of funk, then nothing will!
1:00 PM gives me real bad gas when Van Helsing (2004) craps all over FX. You may as well go back to watching Asteriod...did you hear? It won an Emmy!
At 2:30 PM, Turner Classic is showing Capricorn One (1978). I have never seen, nor even heard of this film before, so it gets my default pick of the week. It's directed by Peter Hyams, who is an okay filmmaker, but it's the cast that is the big draw with this one: Elliott Gould, James Brolin, Telly Savalas, Karen Black, Hal Holbrook, and OJ Simpson before he killed motha fuckas! It has an awesome concept too...
Speaking of wicked casts, at 3:30 The Poseidon Adventure (1972) is on Fox Movie Channel. A classic disaster movie with a brilliant cast bigger than the asteroid from Asteroid, but I bet The Poseidon Adventure never won no Emmy. Take that Poseidon Adventure!
Getting close to dinner time, 4:00 PM brings us Underworld: Evolution (2006) on FX. The Underworld movies are okay I guess. Not the worst films ever, but certainly nothing to really get excited over outside of the mega hot Kate Beckinsale and the other hot Vampire chicks sprinkled throughout. Though, non of them are as sexy as Michael Biehn, but luckily for Underworld: Evolution, Asteroid is finished destroying my heart with love for the day.
Last but not least, at 4:15 PM The Blob (1958) is on Turner Classic Movies. While I am more a fan of the '88 remake, I always loved the original The Blob, though I probably haven't watched it since around 1988. Still, not a bad way to end the hangover if I do say so myself!
That's all she wrote...Later skaters!
