I've missed the last two weeks because I've been religiously watching UEFA Euro 2016, which is like the FIFA Football World Cup but for European teams. It's been pretty good, Iceland have done remarkably well and England beat Wales in the last minute, which shut up my Welsh colleagues. I was really smug about it until Wales got further than England after progressing to the quarter finals. England, meanwhile, were beaten by Iceland. This marked the second time we embarrassed our selves on the European Stage in less than a week
But this week I’m back and the theme for this week is high school reunions. Make sure to check out - http://wanderingthroughtheshelves.blogspot.co.uk/
In Romy and Michele's High School Reunion, Romy and Michelle decide to lie about their success because they felt they'd have to be better than they were in highschool. The film is ok, Lisa Kurdow and Mira Sorvino have pretty good chemistry.
Whilst Romy and Michele decided to lie about their occupation, Martin Blank probably should lie about his as he is a paid assassin, but he tells everyone and, perhaps for the best, everyone takes it as a joke. Grosse Point Blank is a fun film, not seen it for a while though.
It was 5am in the morning and I was still awake for two reasons, firstly the rain was hammering down so hard it was impossible to ignore and the second reason was there are no less than five cracks in my ceiling where water was seeping through and making a rather loud dripping sound. So I gave up sleeping and decided to watch Slaughter High, a truly dreadful 1980s slasher flick where a bullied nerd gets revenge on all his bullies at the 10 year high school reunion.
The film has dated horribly, the effects are outranked by many films in the same era (especially by the films worked on by Tom Savini), the acting is atrocious and the film is laughably bad. However, it's fun for these reasons, it terribly watchable. Though the ending made fuck all sense.
