Big Nopety Nope Nope

Let me start off by saying before God and everyone who is reading this post that if you recommended this movie to me, you need to buy me a cup of coffee and very carefully EXPLAIN WHAT THE HECK IS WRONG WITH YOU.

(Breath. Calm down, Anna.)


So, I watched the movie “Big” a couple of months back on a plane (which happens to be the worst place to watch a movie that completely makes you question the saneness of humanity and WHY EVERYONE THINKS THIS MOVIE IS SO FREAKING ADORABLE, BUT IT’S NOT AND I’LL TELL YOU WHYYYYYYYYY!).

(Sorry, I’m having a hard time with my capslock button right now.)

I’ll walk you quickly through my thoughts while watching “Big”. It goes like this:

Awww, cute. Kid get’s his wish to be big. That’ll be fun for a day or two!


Awww, cute. He’s still acting like a kid in his grownup body. Cause, he’s a kid. Make’s sense. 


Awww, cute. He get’s to play with toys all day. Gimme dat job already! 


Hmmm, ok. This is kinda weird. Cause he’s a kid… 


Hmmm, ok. What?! Somebody clue her in already that he is a C-H-I-L-D. 


Oh, good. Scriptwriter came to his senses. Pwew. Let’s go back to cuteness. 


Um. I…






He’s 13 years old people. How is this ok on any level! 

Ok. I have to stop here because my blood pressure can’t take it.

Let me just wrap this up by saying that I might give this lady a pass for unknowingly bedding a child, but then she straight-up watches him shrink in his suit and is kinda like, “Awww, cute.”



Every single person on the credit list for this movie is CUCKOO FOR COCOA PUFFS.

2019 According to Blade Runner

Heya Friends! It’s me, Anna.

Have you forgotten about me? I watch your favorite movie classics for the first time and tell you that I hate them. Mostly. Except for this one time a few days ago when I watched “Blade Runner” and LOVED IT. Mostly.

I’m not gonna lie. It was super creepy, slow, poorly acted and almost all of it was really unbelievable. But there were two really BEAUTIFUL things about Blade Runner: The Production Design and Harrison Ford.


Despite that, I was most interested in how a film from 1982 depicts what the world is supposed to be like two years from now. Let’s observe 2019 according to “Blade Runner”.

Apparently analog tv’s make a comeback. 


So does lung cancer. 


No more water bans and rationing in Los Angeles. Look at all that rain!  


Vidal Sassoon creates the Wind Tunnel Hair Care System and it blows. 


Oh and retro-looking flying cars are a thing too. 


All animals are artificial, but we still think it’s a good idea to have snakes. 


Replicants want to kill you but first, poetry. 


And (drum roll) this is what the world looks like 2 years into the Trump presidency: 


It felt really good to watch this movie, especially since they are remaking making a sequel this year. I’ve had a bluray copy of it in the basement with the plastic on it for 2 years!

Well, We’re Waiting…


It’s been a while… SORRY!

A lot has happened since I wrote my last movie reaction post. Most notably, I had a baby! And with a new baby comes a lot of movie watching and Netflix bingeing while nursing. (Hello, sore back and 5 seasons of Dexter!)

I had recorded “Caddyshack” on our DVR months ago from AMC and lucky for me it came with “Story Notes”. This was a pretty fun way to watch the movie for the first time, so I thought I’d share some of my favorites (with GIFs of course!) with you:

1) When director Harold Ramis met Bill Murray, in the early seventies, he was working the concession stand at a golf course.


2) Murray was only on set for six days, and his character, Carl, had no scripted lines. Ramis would just leave the camera on him and let it roll.


3) The gopher scenes were shot way after the film had wrapped to try to tie the movie together. The studio paid over $500,000 to add the mechanical critter to the film.


4) The production designer says the pool “was a dump, full of sludge, slime, and other stuff.”


5) Murray and Chase were not friendly off set. In fact, they once came to blows backstage at “SNL”. But when it came time to film, they acted like complete professionals.


6) During filming, Dangerfield thought he was “bombing” because no one was laughing. Someone finally explained to him that if people laughed it would ruin the take.


7) The production built a fake green between two courses to blow up. Then they sent the golf-course staff to a party and secretly blew it up while they were gone.


8) Dangerfield’s character was based on a guy in New York who had sirens on his car.


9) Golf writer Ron Green Sr.: “Everyone was talking about “Caddyshack” at the golf course, and a lot of people started using the lines right away. It just struck a chord with golfers.”


10) “Caddyshack” was created by most of the same team behind 1978’s comedy smash “Animal House”. The goal was to do the same thing all over again.


Welp, it looks like I’m going to have to watch “Animal House” now… And TBH, Canyon and I hope it’s a bit funnier than “Caddyshack”.
