A chance to catch up on some great VHS's during a stay in a cabin between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge


Who doesn't love the scene when President Harrison Ford tells the terrorist (Gary Oldman) to "get off my plane." It was more thrilling to drive through tornado warnings in the mountains because that's realistic. A president kicking some serious butt? I'm not so sure. 

I can't remember when the bad guy got the icicle shoved in the eye socket. Was it this one? Or was it "Die Hard 2"? All I know is that 40 stories of sheer adventure wasn't quite enough, not with "Die Hard with a Vengeance"  and "Live Free or Die Hard" out there. 

Warren Beatty looks like Michael Landon in this...and every time I see this movie jacket I think, "Did they actually turn 'Highway to Heaven' into a movie? Because the last time I checked, it was just a TV show...right?" Then I read the premise and it sounds stupid. I would rather watch "Shampoo." 

I remember going to a place to rent movies when I was little. The movies came in these giant brown cases. For some reason, I remember seeing this one. I've never been interested in seeing it.  

I remember seeing "Lethal Weapon 3" in the theater. It was the day that I was in a moonwalk and as I bounced and landed on my back, a kid's heel hit me in the mouth and I the bottom row of my teeth. I remember going to my parents with a handful of teeth pieces. Later that night, we went to the movies. In the theater, my teeth were so sensitive that I couldn't even eat the popcorn. It felt like I was squishing pain-inducing Styrofoam in my mouth. 

No comment.

I wonder when she posed for this movie jacket if Sally Field thought, "I hope that when I get older, I suffer from bone loss and get to become the spokesperson for a product called Boniva." 

What did ever happen to Wesley SnipesWesley Snipes?

I really hope they didn't pay $30 for this movie...
