Allow me to reintroduce myself.

My name is Derek. I'm an internet old-timer who lives in , and I am the founder and admin of laserdisc.party, the video store of the fediverse (or so I like to think).

And while I do talk lots about (went to grad school, wrote a thesis on The Room and Snakes on a Plane, have a film-crit website and two movie podcasts), I'm just as likely to talk about , , , and your garden variety comedic nonsense.

Welcome!

Good morning Party People, it's the middle of the week and there's gonna be a shitload of snow falling on top of the island very soon

Criterion always carefully times their sales to coincide with when I am broke and I appreciate that about them

Is there any more cursed chunk of film history than the big SFX-driven summer movies of 2007 to 2012?

They made TWO Clash of the Titans remake movies.

@derek it's wild that there's tangible evidence of its existence and yet it is also a fever dream we collectively had and are glad to have awoke from

that movie, despite having made a billion dollars, already doesn't exist

damn remember when Will Smith played the fucking genie in a Guy Ritchie-directed Aladdin remake, shit's crazy

one of those Acme detonators that goes kablooey in the coyote's face, but it's labelled "good ideas"

I listened to that first Chisel album today and holy moly, that's a good-ass rock record, Ted Leo rules

Show thread

y'know I think all of us, as a culture, have spent far too long taking Ted Leo for granted

I had a dream last night I was working on a ship of some kind, and during my time off I went to a record release party for a split covers EP. One band was a Dickies-esque pop punk band named Piss Boner; the other was a Sleep-esque doom outfit called Bruja.

Derek boosted

god I should start playing Scrabble again

Derek boosted

the criterati: hmm, Midsommar, yes, that's the tasteful horror film for me

me, drinking champagne in a dope housecoat: get me the grossest, goopiest splatter shit you can find, the more banned the better

Get Out is the same thing as Slumber Party Massacre III, sorry libs
