It kinda felt like a Cab TV initiation. Do you think were ready for Suriving Edged Wepons?

I'd like to take this opportunity to go in a completely opposite direction and push for a screening of Critters 2.

Critters 2 is boss, a man in a bunny suit gets bitten in the groin. Instant classic

Critters vs Threads would be a film I'd pay to, uh, have an Internet connection to download it with! Can those cheeky Crites fight, uh, a nuclear holocaust?

Sad we never got Critters vs Puppet Master vs Gremlins vs Ghoulies vs Amelie

I tend to think of it in similar terms to Return of the Living Dead but ultimately less of a downer. It's kind of an anomaly in being a horror movie with plenty of gore and death but also sweet, relatable character interactions, lots of silliness and a soundtrack that frequently veers into Spielbergian sentimentality to the point where it sometimes feels like it's aimed at kids. It also does the Gremlins 2 thing of being better than the first movie in a variety of ways and expanding on everything done in the previous installment.

I saw it as a kid and it was great! Yeah, it has some nice qualities. It's fun without sacrificing the gore. And it ramped up everything from the first movie. A great sequel, and a fun film

What a franchise too. Film debut of Leonardo diCaprio in Critters 3. Heights he would never meet again..!

I must admit, it is a bit trauma inducing. It was fun watching it with you lot, though! Thanks again for a good night's entertainment, Delete.

I saw Threads when it first came out on an old portable black and white telly and all my memories were of the second half. On this rewatch it was the first half that got to me.. everyone coping or not with being powerless in the face of the inevitable... whether its decorating the new flat or pretending that peopke outside losing their shit are just pub goers being kicked out at closing time.

It was almost a relief when the bombs finally fell.

Oh also that youtube channel I mention about the Lawyer who reviews films and rates there acuracy to law. His new one he goes through Willy Wonka and works out how much prision time Wonka would get and the amount of damages he has to pay. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Z1p7TMPXFM

The idea that on the day Charlie gets everything he's ever wanted his mentor is arrested, the factory is torn down for health and saftey reasons... and he has to return to his overcrowded hovel... fills my heart with joy.

I believe the Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator novel covers it in passing.

Never been happier to have been paraphrasing Partridge!

Except that time on the tube when I uttered, hilariously, Jurassic Park. Needless to say, nobody had the first laugh...

Anywho. Looks a good lineup!

Looking forward to watching Manhunter with the Threads survivors.  That fucking thing was a longstanding psychological bugbear of mine that is now somewhat less fearsome having had comments such as 'CaB meme there' as the lady done a piss and other dry observations.  God bless this forum and all who sail in her.  You are good for me and hopefully you are good for you, you.

It was a weird sort of bonding experience! The bit where the woman pissed herself reminded me of a similar scene in The Man Who Fell to Earth starring David Bowie (which incidentally would be quite a cool film for a future CAB TV main event).

Regarding Threads... crisp fans will be relieved/horrified to note that the prawn cocktail flavoured ones survive the nuclear holocaust.

I hope thats doesn't count as a spoiler.

Do the tomato sauce flavour ones survive as well?  They are the same apart from the packet.

No. It's only the prawn cocktail ones. That's why I spent the weekend insulating my flat with prawn cocktail crisps. I've also made a radiation suit out of the packets.
