Wipe that crust from your eyes kiddo, it's time to wake up! You don't have to get out of bed or anything silly like that, I just want to make sure that you don't miss out on any of the great cinema that cable has to offer today. And it's a pretty solid day of movies, I might add, so lets not delay the magic any longer!
Things start off with a bang (or not) at 11:00, when Heatstroke (2008) is on SyFy. This one was on a previous Hangover and there wasn't a trailer to post, so instead, I put up this picture.
I thought that since I put up that amazing photo last time, I should up the stakes the second time around. So, I found this clip to further whet your appetite for the what-the–fuck fest that is Heatstroke.
At 12:00, TBS wants you to look to the cookie, with Romeo Must Die (2000). I remember seeing Romeo Must Die in theaters and loving it, but the second time around, not so much. Actually, I think I almost hated it the second time around, so I guess the jury is still out on this one for me. Watching this trailer, however, makes me think it looks at least decent, so who knows. Your opinion is always valued, dear reader, so feel free to weigh in.
SyFy wants you to get your ass to Mars with Total Recall (1990) at 1:00. I mean, it's Total Recall, a movie that is nothing short of awesome and is easily my pick of the week. Love Schwarzenegger, love Verhoeven, love Ironside, love three titties, and I love Total Recall! I should mention, if you have never listened to the commentary track with Arnold and Verhoeven for this film, you need to do so as soon as possible. Pure gold.
Up next, I have back-to-back sequels that I honestly forgot even existed. The films are Amityville 4: The Evil Escapes (1989), which is on at 1:00 and is followed by Amityville 1992: It's About Time (1992) at 3:00. Both films are playing on the one channel best known for horror, the TV Guide Channel, which I believe is a first for the Horror Hangover. After seeing these trailers, I cannot help but think that I must see both of these films as soon as possible. I may have seen 1992, but I cannot remember for sure. Either way, these both look to make for a double dose of spooky awesomeness this afternoon.
SyFy keeps the afternoon straight krunk at 3:30 with one of the great all time sequels, Aliens (1986). What can I say about Aliens outside of saying it's Aliens?! Watch it, unless you have something better to do, like watch Amityville 1992: It's About Time. Not that that's time better spent, but it can't be terrible time spent either. I mean, it is about time.
