Movie of the Day – Sleepaway Camp

The only reason I am posting about this movie today is because the ending to Sleepaway Camp is just frightening.  Also because this movie just so happens to be sort of, in a roundabout way, the inspiration to Wet Hot American Summer.  That has to count for something in my book since that movie is fucking awesome.  I digress, Sleepaway Camp for me will only be remembered for being terribly bad, but that ending, my god that ending.

Movie of the Day – Meatballs

I fucking love Bill Murray.  That’s all I got for the opening of this post and frankly it is all I need to open this post.  Bill Murray is the man, everything he does is amazing, except for like Garfield and Osmosis Jones, but all if forgiven for his body of work.  It’s also like 100 degrees outside, Fahrenheit not Celsius or Kelvin, so Meatballs seems like a proper choice for today with it’s theme summer camp shenanigans and wholesome, raunchy 70s humor.  Also Bill Murray is in this movie as he is the shit, as I stated earlier.

Movie of the Day – Heavyweights

All my time of watching movies have given me numerous life lessons.  In particular, I have learned a lot about the camping experience.  I have found that there are three types of camping scenarios:

  1. The typical sex romp camping experience where the counselors are banging other counselors and the campers are promiscuous little devils
  2. The camp that has some sort of supernatural experience and campers start getting murdered
  3. The camp experience that involves the combining of numbers 1 and 2 to satisfy two demographics, and lastly
  4. The fat kid/loser camp.

I am certain you can tell be the trailer and title which sort of camp experience this will be.  Heavyweights for me, is probably one of the best camping movies of all time.  I don’t give a shit about Friday the 13th and the murder rampage that went on or some other generic comedy, this is what it’s about.  Let’s start Perkisizing suckers!
