Sit down this is no time for Tetris and turn of the shiny new Michael Jackson Thriller CD and break out your crushed velvet warm up suit its time to fire up that new Mac hop on the Twitter and watch some great movies for this year 5 Annual F This Movie Fest!!
This is the greatest thing to happen to February since the Puppy Bowl when a group of movie fans just like you and me use the hashtag #Fthismoviefest and blow up twitter it is such a blast!
And with a killer line up including The Last Star Fighter, Indian Jones and the Temple of Doom, Night of the Comet, Streets of Fire, and the creme a la creme the king of 1984 Ghostbusters to finish out the night.
All you need to take part in this zany madness is simple first the movies. VHS, Laser Disk, DVD, Blu-Ray it does not matter even if you are streaming it! (I only have streets of fire on VHS so talk about a complete throwback) You will also need a twitter account so you can follow along. To put in your commentary, all you do is use the hashtag with your comments. That's it so simple and yet so much fun!! Last year we went on for what felt like an hour just talking about how hot Van Damme's mullet was in Hard Target.
Other things that will come in handy food, beer, popcorn of course but don't forget your Wham T-Shirt while spinning your Bruce Springsteen's Born In The USA record during the breaks. But for god's sake do not set your hair on fire while drinking Pepsi that has already been done in 1984!
I can not express how much fun this is and well worth the time and effort. If you do not have all the movies that's ok I have been know to skip a few from time to time as well. But we all own Ghostbusters so be sure to join in.
