Cocktails and Classics: Smokey and the Bandit

*Update: Rushed this article and criminally neglected Jackie Gleason’s role in making this comedy work.* Remember a time when comedy was funny without trying? Maybe I’m old, but I still laugh more at this movie, released in 1977, than most modern ‘comedies’ combined. It’s irreverent, and just on the virtuous side of vulgar, and it … [Read more…]

Cocktails and Classics: The Legend of Billie Jean

This is one of my favorite movies from my childhood. I remember watching it on the TV in my Grandparent’s basement because they had HBO. I was enthralled with the idea of kids standing up for injustice, and I probably had a crush on Billie Jean. I can’t say for sure because I know I … [Read more…]

Our original plan was to watch Space Camp with a variation of a Tang screwdriver (we were going to call it a NASA Screwdriver). Should have known, when Tang was so hard to find, something wasn’t going right. No one…not one of the many streaming services we have had Space Camp available. So, we moved … [Read more…]

Cocktails and Classics: Starman

I saw Starman many years ago, and I don’t think I’ve seen it since. Watching this movie as an adult gives an entirely new perspective, and appreciation for the story. Not only that, but new appreciation for Jeff Bridges as well. What I remember as a mysterious science fiction thriller is so much more through … [Read more…]
