Well, at least you can laugh that one of your teachers starred in an extremely horrible movie. If you see him at a high school reunion or something one day in the future, you can razz him about that.
Now, people have said things about my tastes in movies before-let's not get into that; although, I think that Tati himself would agree with that; one thing about his profile makes it clear he feels that way-but I can't say that I was blown away with Creepshow
either. It wasn't awful by any means. Maybe it was just that I first saw it as an adult a few years ago, or that I saw pieces and bits of it on TV before giving it a full view, but when I finally watched it on DVD, it wasn't a "horror classic" or anything to me.
OK, so technically I didn't even really see the final segment, but as I am really not a fan of bugs, that is why I skipped ahead to the final bit. Hell, as a kid that one scene in Temple of Doom
nearly made me soil my pants, to exaggerate a little bit.
Anyway, as I was saying, the movie wasn't an Instant Classic or anything. No offense Patrick, but I'd never say it was "perfect". Of course it had its moments, but there were also moments that just didn't work for me at all, like the entirety of the second segment. OK, so "meteor shit" was amusing and so was briefly seeing some old WWF wrestling being watched by King, but otherwise, that was a waste of time. At least I can say that the dance Ed Harris and his lady did to that great disco tune was memorable... I guess I thought it was also oddly paced at times and I guess that overall, when it all came together the movie wasn't as great as most people say it is, and I was let down by that.
So, you can say that I still have bad movie tastes of what have you; at least I'll say that I agree with parts of what Tati thinks about the flick.
