Lent: Part 3

The Wizard (1989) – This movie was not awesome. I just don’t know what to say about it. It is remarkable only in that it had the least effect on me of any movie in as long as I can remember. Then again, if a movie had less of an effect on me, I wouldn’t remember it. So let’s just put this post up to remind me that I have indeed seen this movie.

    My Two Cents, Year 3: Part 3

    Ryan is wrong, this movie was awesome. It is even “so bad,” and it’s 1989 when bad meant awesome. This is the best infomercial since Ron Popeil offered sliced bread for just 5 easy payments of 39.95.

    Wizard is a special movie to a special subset, it is our “Children of a Lesser God” if you’re willing to be sorta flexible on interpretations…

    But off topic, WHAT IS YOUR ICON OH GOD 🙁 I wanna say sesame street or something like that but I can’t say for sure and it’s driving me to slight annoyance.

      I also hated Children of a Lesser God, but I think I see what you mean.

      The icon is the typewriter guy from Sesame Street. I can’t seem to find any more specific names for him anywhere–just Typewriter Guy. There are Youtube videos: just search for Typewriter Guy. Noony noony noo…

    so sorry we didnt end up making it out on Friday but circumstances prevented us from heading over the water. Would have LOVED to watch as Mandy and I agree with Darien that it is an AWESOME movie!

    Also, I can’t BELIEVE, Ryan, that you had never seen this movie! It’s another childhood classic. What’s up with that!?

      I believe Ryan actually had no childhood. I recently unearthed documents that suggest Ryan’s birth was part of a failed attempt to clone Adolf Hitler, and that he was incubated in a tank for the first 16 years of his life. After he was pulled out, it became clear that something went wrong somewhere along the line, and he was dumped in a ditch outside of Juanita High School.

      The rest of the story really writes itself.

        I would say there are witnesses to my life before sixteen, but my mother doesn’t seem to remember anything I did as a child, and Robert died years ago.

        But I reiterate: I am probably not Hitler!
