Flatliners – Movie of the Week – Shot1 Discussion Club

It is hard to believe that the movie Flatliners came out almost 25 Years ago.  This movie messed with my head so much when I was 13.   I wonder if Flatliners can stand the test of time.  Special effects have come a long way since this was released,  it will be interesting to revisit what I once thought was mind blowing special effects.    Hopefully the movie stands up well enough that Hollywood doesn’t feel the need for a cheesy sequel or even worse, a dreaded reboot!

Dust off your VCR’s or fire up your Netflix, Flatliners is this weeks Shot1 Discussion Club movie of the week.   Let’s see if this start studded cast can f’ with my head 24 years later. 

For those of you without a VCR, or Netflix.   There is a questionable link below to an online streaming version of the movie.   Enjoy at your own risk.

Shot1 Discussion Club – Extreme Body Modification

Fringe Friday presents “Taboo: Extreme Bodies”.    Beth and I will be watching the YouTube video below and hosting an online discussion for those interested in joining us.  Think book club without the book or scheduling. 

This is an open invitation so please share as you wish.  

Tats, piercings and bagel heads, oh my!

From the YouTube Description:

For some people, improving one’s appearance can lead to extreme body modification. Meet the “Vampire Woman” – she’s a lawyer, a mother, and the world’s most modified female, with 96% tattoo coverage, several sets of horns, arm implants, and 25 piercings. Meanwhile, artist Keroppy is leading the way in the trendy body modification industry. His newest exhibition features “bagelheads,” people with what looks like a small bagel protruding from their foreheads.”

Movie to See – Martyrs

Watched this on netflix without having any idea of what it was about.   I high recommend checking it out if you enjoy a good scare.   I am not deep into horror, but I can appreciate a good scary movie.   Martyrs is a movie that evolves as the story unfolds.  It almost feels like three different movies by the end of it.    

Have you seen it?  What did she say?

Classic Movie Review – The Andromeda Strain

I read this book a few years back and decieded to check out the film adaptation.   Suprisingly, the film version is very close to the novel and is quite fun to watch.   This movie would never be made today and would not be able to hold the typical movie goer audience.   It is way to smart,  there is nothing like watching scientists solve thier problems on the big screen.

I definitely recommend checking it out just for the good old school computer footage.
