OK, so here is the test of my dedication to Monday Movie Meme. I have been to a Super Bowl party. It is almost 10:30 at night. I have kids going to school tomorrow, and construction boys showing up early but here I am talking about freaking BUGS, my worst nightmare. Inspired by the Bumbles, and the half time show where The Who performed, at one point in their lives, Boris the Spider, I have to talk about bugs in the movies. I live in the land of flying, rope-em-and-ride-em cock roaches. You would think I have had enough torment. So in my semi-inebriated state, here are the movies that cause me nightmares:
King Kong - there are some SERIOUS bugs in this movie (the latest one with Jack Black and company). Ones that look like they will eat you in one bite, ones that look like male private parts...I just closed my eyes in this portion of the movie, which lasted about 45 agonizing minutes.
The Fly - Jeff Goldblum was the THE DUDE when he starred in this movie, where he turned into an insect. Giant hairs on his back, pus-filled stuff on his back...it was enough to wean me off his indie mojo. I wasn't really interested in what he had to sell in this flick.
Joe's Apartment - yes, it is campy and funny, ha ha. Try living in Florida for a year or two, and realize that this hell is your life.
Wall-E - I guess when you boil it all down, cockroaches are going to survive us all, per the Disney-ified movie about the almost end of the Earth. It is really sad to think, after all my struggles, they will win in the end.
Silence of the Lambs - ahhhh, now you know I love this movie. How would you expect me to forget about the Death's Head Moth, which was shoved down the throats of girl victims' throats?
I am sure there are plenty of nasty bug movies, but I haven't the energy to go on. Yes there is a nasty spider creature in LOTR, as well as Harry Potter. I call dibs on those. Any others? Please enlighten...
