The I-Shoulda-Seen-That-By-Now Movie Marathon

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 7.236% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

Just a reminder: the I-Shoulda-Seen-That-By-Now Movie Marathon is next Saturday, at our house.  The ISSTBN Marathon is a long-standing tradition, where people gather to watch movies that they feel guilty about having gotten to this fine age without having seen.
(Someone always tries to go, “Well, there’s this movie I love…”  No.  This is about films you have not seen.)
My choice for this upcoming film festival: Clue, which I feel guilty about not because I feel it’s a great movie (I don’t think it is), but rather because I feel that as a former Rocky Horror-obsessed lad, I should have seen Tim Curry in all of his best roles.  Our pal Lucy is seeing The Wrath of Khan because Jesus Christ, don’t you know you don’t get your soul until you’ve watched Kirk and Spock battle Ricardo Montalban?  And Mel wants to watch Flashdance, which I’m not entirely sure how she feels guilty about not seeing it, but then again she’s a girl who loves Dirty Dancing and I assume there’s something about estrogen and 80s dance movies that is like an Innsmouth call to the deep.
So if you’re local and feel like watching, the rules are at our Evite, and just lemme know that you’re attending.  I feel like we need a couple of dramas, or at least a movie produced somewhere outside of the “1982 to 1985” range that we’re currently sporting, so all film lovers are welcome and loved as long as they choose a good movie.
A good movie, mind you.  I chose My Dinner With Andre the last time.  I’ll let the Doctor speak for me on that choice.

    I am TOTALLY grabbing this idea for an event here in Northern Virginia! I think it’s perfect for our Geek Club Meetup group! Thanks for sharing.
