Aging Like Fine Wine

Posted in movies by arcanedufresne on February 11, 2011

I’ve had this list in the works for a long time but never got around to posting it. I managed to catch a couple of these movies in one weekend and it triggered me on an a quest for my favorite 80’s babes. So here is my top five, completely biased based on my personal preference and strictly for the role they play in the films listed, not their entire body of work.

Dottie (Elizabeth Daily) – Pee Wee’s Big Adventure

Dottie had that tomboy thing going on and her voice was weirdly seductive in a hoarse, scratchy type way. It helped that she worked at a bike shop, (I was hoping for the employee discount) and of course was responsible for Pee Wee giving us this gem: “I’m a loner, Dottie, a rebel.”

Sloane Peterson (Mia Sara) – Ferris Bueller’s Day Off

She was rebellious, classy and had a sense of humor and style (that jacket with the fringes gets me every time) and don’t forget the cab scene with Ferris’ dad and her Wayfarers.

Linda Barrett (Phoebe Cates) – Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Photobucket
Homer pick. The pool scene. What more can I say?

Diane Lane (Patty) – Rumble Fish
Photobucket
You could probably interchange Lane’s character in Rumble Fish with Cherry Valance, her role in the Outsiders as it was released in the same year, with similar content (S.E. Hinton) but I preferred Patty. Maybe it was the schoolgirl charm or the way she said Rusty James.

Winona Ryder (Lydia Deetz) – Beetlejuice
Photobucket
The darkhorse candidate (pun?) of the list. When I was really young, Beetle Juice (IMDB has it listed as two words, but I thought it was one?) scared the crap out of me but as I grew up I loved it more and more along with Lydia. Plus, she was a babe in the cartoon version as well.

Triumvirate

Posted in accomplices/associates, movies, music, sports, tv by arcanedufresne on February 9, 2011

A coalition of three magistrates. After stumbling upon the Mavericks photo of Nash, Dirk and Cuban (why isn’t the smaller Nash on Cuban’s shoulders? Cubes is always showing off) I started coming across more pictures of triangular fun time, so I thought I’d share them. These were the first ones that came to mind…

I’ve thought this for so long but never made it publicly known, but c’mon, you agree right?

FAMILY?!?!

Inside the Actor’s Studio

Posted in accomplices/associates, movies by arcanedufresne on February 2, 2011

I think my man Schaef missed his calling here. Not to say that he isn’t an amazingly successful and ruthless kingpin in the financial industry, but seriously, his facial expressions in this short are phenomenal. I was peeing in my cubicle. Oscar-worthy! I’ll post the link to the full clip when I get the okay from the actor/director.

It’s Friday. Get Wild. Love Life.

I need to re-embrace the mantra, because I haven’t been living it like I need to. Sometimes staying posi (12) is all you can do to get by…

Reid & Lee

Posted in adventure, home, movies, tv by arcanedufresne on January 12, 2011

All this hubbub surrounding the Green Hornet release on Friday has me pining for the original show. I remember watching re-runs on Nick at Nite back home. Or maybe it was on TBS in the morning before they switched to Gilligan’s Island. Either way, need to find a season of this and hunker down for a day of viewing. I definitely remember seeing the Batman / Green Hornet combo episodes also.

It makes too much sense

Brody-o

Posted in movies by arcanedufresne on December 20, 2010

Thinking about an Adrien Brody marathon at some point before the new year dawns or at least Brothers Bloom, The Thin Red Line, The Darjeeling Limited and High School (which I haven’t seen yet).
