There’s More Than One Way to Lose Your Heart

As I posted last week, I went to go see the “re-imagining” of the 1980 slasher, My Bloody Valentine. The newest incarnation is in 3-D, and for that reason alone, I was pretty psyched about it. THEN I found out that it’s the REAL 3-D, not that cheap blue lens/red lens crap from the 90’s, and that just upped the ante. Not to mention that both Kerr Smith and Jensen Ackles star in the new version. HELLO!

Afterwards, we had an impromptu gathering at my house, where we had coffee & (ironically) heart-shaped Valentine’s cookies, while watching the the newly-released Special Edition of the original. The overall consensus was that the original’s story line, characters and overall creep-factor, easily surpassed the remake’s. Continue reading

My Bloody Valentine 3-D

As an unspoken rule, I scoff at most remakes, or “re-imaginings,” if you must. Mostly because 9x outta ten, movies that were just fine the first time around, are being remade for the Cellphone Generation (Amityville Horror, The Fog, When a Stranger Calls, The Stepford Wives, etc.), with horrendous, diarrhea-inducing results.

However, I readily admit that I am looking forward to the latest “re-imagining” of one of my favorite 80’s slashers, My Bloody Valentine. I still fondly remember seeing the trailer on TV, back in 1980, and I’ve loved almost everything about it ever since: the movie poster, the premise, the killer’s uber-creepy look, the gruesome murders, the execution (no pun intended), etc. (the ‘almost’ comes because I wasn’t a fan of the banjo-riffic soundtrack).

Crack du Jour

I like food. I especially like food with as little nutritional value as possible.

And that’s why my crack du jour is Nabisco’s Garden Harvest Toasted Chips. I picked these up in the “half price” bin at the gas station (classy!) and soon fell in love with them. They are thin, crisp and loaded with the vegetable goodness that is deliciously nostalgic to Nabisco’s ORIGINAL Vegetable Thins. Not exact, but close. I’ll still never forgive them for dumping their classics vegetable-shaped crackers (onions, bell peppers, celery stalks) for their new retarded reincarnation. AND the groovy thing I just learned is that in addition to Apple Cinnamon and Tomato Basil, they also make a *drumroll* Banana chip version! OMG, that sounds REALLY good to me. Perhaps even crushed up on a peanut butter sammich? Oh yeaaaaah.

And secondly, while perusing the Valentine goodies at Walgreen’s the other day, I noticed they had in their 3 for $3 candy bin, these new Chewy Atomic Fireballs. I got some (along with a few boxes of Swedish Fish). They are SO good! In fact, I’m heading out to pick up another batch to take to the movies tomorrow night. *sneakeh!* Seek them out. They are definitely worth it!
