    another in my occasional series, of cult horror, eccentricities and exploitation movies

    today we go back to everybody's favourite decade, the eighties. Specifically 1986, and the movie 'deadly friend'. Deadly friend is a kinda sci-fi horror that plays out in two parts. The first is a sort of dark version of 'short circuit', and the second a kinda 'humanoid maniac' sorta thing.

    It's an entertaining movie, directed by Wes Craven, he of Freddy fame. The robot in it 'bb' is really cute, and sort of like Johnny 5, only even cuter, and even more autonomous, however he also has an evil side. I can't go too much further without spoilering, suffice to say that his chip ends up in a girls brain, and turns her murderous. there's an infamous basketball scene, that's well worth watching, and an eighties feel to the movie that gives it a nostalgic vibe.

    One I heartily recommend to fans of the eighties, sci-fi and the short circuit movies. Oh yeah, the girl in it also went on to play buff the vampire slayer in the movie version of that.

    Well who else on the forum would be reviewing some obscure horror movie from 1986?

    Well let’s check the evidence;
    - it’s long (tick)
    - it’s a subject no one cares about (except @jedshepherd and @Spaceman) - tick
    - it’s boring -tick
    - it’s from yet another disastrous thread - tick

    Why would you ask such a stupid question, of course it is yours?!

    I wonder if anybody on the forum actually bothered to read the whole of that review at the time? Looks like the kind of post I'd see and immediately leave the thread.

    I only read them when @Sammer4Rimmer repeats them

    Somehow they are more dull when it’s @neilold writing them

    I watched brexit means brexit last night on bbc, that programme was a hoot. I know the bbc is cosmopolitan liberal biased but that took it to extremes. I genuinely thought they were going to superimpose evil moustaches onto nigel farage and other brexiteers at one point. Not necessarily the content, but the voice over commentator seemed to be having a ball with them.

    Soubry talks more my kind of language. “It’s just a bit smeg, isn’t it?” she says, unhappily. Meanwhile, in Stoke, another woman – not a politician, just a normal woman (whos definition of normal that is wasn't expressed)– thinks the leader of Ukip is a bit smeg. “How dare Paul Nuttall show his face in this city,” she says. “Racist anti-immigration bastard!” Hear hear.

    This was my favourite part, extracted from the guardian review, if you can believe that the guardian would ever print such a thing.

    though I must admit the biggest smile of the night came from me when anne soubury found out that someone had urinated on her poster.

    Childish, yes, but fun. The actual programme itself, apart from my own personal view on it, was quite interesting. Many tories were deeply sceptical of any sort of landslide pre-election, and it was interesting to see them express it and juxtaposition with the pre election garbage they actually come out with to the public.

    Its also interesting to see how Corbyn himself presents himself at times as a sort of Labour Farage, blustering, forthright, anti-mp and aggressive in his attitudes and presentation, and its worth pondering how much of this he actually borrowed off Farage, and vice versa. Old Terry may was shown up and depicted as a sort of fatalistic dictator, plotting her own grandiose suicide with innumerable gaffes and misdecisions and an arrogance in herself that even napoleon would cringe over.

    Anyways its worth a spare hour if you have iplayer, and it'd be interested in your views on it

    I like the curry flavored Pot Noodle.

    There's one about now that can obliterate your insides and burn both ends simultaneously.
