This Week's Movie You've Probably Never Seen
As I was trolling the sci-fi section I was surprised to find a 90s gem like this that I had never even heard of. What you get here is a pretty ludicrous story concerning a teenage boy (a post "Dutch" Ethan Embry billed as Ethan Allen) who wins a virtual reality gaming contest (did I mention that this was mid-90s?) and thus is rewarded with a real life robot replica of the VR villain. Who knew that might be a bad idea? So of course the robot goes bonkers and Ethan Embry and his band of nerds must do battle to return some semblance of sanity to their mad, mad virtual reality filled mid-90s universe. This film really feels like one that was written for but passed on by both Coreys. Think "Double O Kid" with robots.
This Week's Record You're Probably Not Listening To
The Nylons - Happy Together (1987)
They do look happy together...a little too happy. Do you love a cappella music, but often wish the vocalists were backed up with a shitty drum machine? You are in luck. Wait, doesn't that make this technically not a cappella music? Probably, if you're a purist. But these guys were, by the looks of it, way too busy banging chicks to care. I mean with songs like "Grown Man Cry," "Kiss Him Goodbye," and "Chain Gang," I don't see how they couldn't be knee-deep in vagina at all times. Cashing in on the a cappella craze of '87 and taking the harmony train to Poonville. Well played, gents. Well played.
