WTF Movie Moments: The NeverEnding Story

16 Aug

Within the first couple minutes of the film Bastian and his dad are in their kitchen having breakfast. Dad makes OJ/raw egg shake. WTF!? See for yourself:

Skip to 2:20 to check it out.

 

His dad doesn’t look like a pro weight lifter or gym bunny. So… Is he just on some 80’s diet fad? Or was the writer on crack when he wrote that in?

Thoughts?

Mary Woronov: The Woman, The Legend

16 Aug

Mary Woronov

VIDEO of her videos:

You may not recognize her name, but her face and/or voice have probably left an impression on you somewhere along your movie watching journey.

Up until I did some research about her for this post I only knew half of the awesomeness that is she. I knew and loved the b movie queen Mary. I had no idea about the Andy Warhol Silver Factory Mary.

Let’s begin with the B movie queen Mary.

Mary Woronov was brilliant in a shit load of shitty film such as:

The Lady in Red

Rock ‘n’ Roll High School

Night of the Comet

TerrorVision

Chopping Mall

Warlock

Frog-g-g!

Not to mention the TV shows she was in that we all hate or adore:

Charlie’s Angels

Logan’s Run

Taxi

Buck Rogers in the 25th Century

Knight Rider

Mr. Belvedere

Murder, She Wrote

Amazing Stories

Faerie Tale Theatre

St. Elsewhere

Webster

Monsters

Wings

Babylon 5

My So-Called Life

Highlander

Family Matters

Super Duper Supremely Condensed Warhol Connection Explanation

Her cool deep voice, lion-like face and 10″ thick cheek bones made an impression on Andy Warhol when she was young. She went on to be one of his break out stars. Sorta. She was on a bunch of his films and participated in the Velvet Underground as a go-go dancer and personality. She later moved on to films and television after the 1960’s groovy days died out. She went on to be a b movie queen. The Mary most of us (those of us who know who she is to begin with) know and love.

Thanks for all your wonderful work, Mary!
