My Bloody Valentine (1981)

INTRO

Oh hi guy,

This week on Filmsack we are mining the very depths of Canadian Horror Entertainment … (exasperated breath) …. SAH-ree guys. I don’t know if I can do an intro this week. I’ve just been pretty bummed ever since I found out they canceled the Valentine’s Day Dance. I was really looking forward to you guys finally meeting my Canadian girlfriend.

Anywho, said “totally real Canadian girlfriend” left me a heart shaped box of what I can only assume is chocolates and a note that I am now going to read for the first time right here on the show:

“To whom it may concern, (always a good start)
You are invited to a Saturday night at you-know-who’s house where we will be celebrating the holy holiday of the horny… aka Valentines Day.”

“All Filmsack miners are welcome.” (that is miners with an ‘er’…not ‘or’…just to be clear.)

“The party will commence at sun down and will include all the Moosehead you can stomach and all the miners you can kiss.” (once again; that is miners with an ‘er’)

It continues, “We will be playing all of your beloved Canadian party games like Twister…. Pin the Axe in the miner…SAH-Ree the board game, Pranks that End in Death, Uno and everyone’s favorite Canadian game Bobbing for Weiners.” That’s Jokes!

“Looking forward to seeing you there. Yours truly. The one armed man.”

ok, turns out that was not from my actual Canadian Girlfriend… but this guy seems nice. So hey, would anybody like a piece of chocolate from my totally not a human heart in a heart shaped box that I am not going to even look at before offering you some. No? ok. and now for someone who has been to Canada and lived to sing a ballad about it..Randy.

Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

oh hi,

This Sunday… it’s Thunderdome Live. Where you don’t want to miss when 2 men enter. 1 man leaves.

Hey, is this going to be like that one time when one of the men who enters is not really a man at all but some kind of grinning boy’s head sitting atop a man-body and then when he starts losing… his little person manager hops into the dome in the middle of the fight and starts yammering in some broken English he learned from Vinyl Records in his Circus train car…. only to be interrupted by yet a fourth individual who enters the dome of thunder to further the discussion on who runs the place…. all the while no “man leaves?” Cause that was some real partisan based pig shit right there.

Anywho, This Sunday, it’s Thunderdome Live!… Where apparently no rules apply….. Even though everyone is chanting the one damn rule.

Tickets available at the box office… if you can convince post modern Alfred Hitcock to sell ’em to ya. God I hate this job. Maybe I will see if I can get a job as an elevator operator. I can do that….Pushing a few buttons all day….ooooohh…Conan Style?…no thanks, I don’t do the cranks. That is just jerking time, Randy

I thought you said it was a Poltergeist…Well what did you say? A Poltergeese? What the hell is a Poltergeese Marty?

Unless….Mr. Freeling….didn’t you say this spot, where your home is built, used to be the city park? But they moved the park 5 miles up the road right Mr Freeling. Right….

The Adventures of Buckaroo Banzai Across the 8th Dimension (1984) – Filmsack Show Notes

INTRO

Oh hi,

This week I sold my first screenplay to Troma Films. Yep! I’m rich! Well, I have pizza money. Now according to the Troma Film Script Naming App, that was recently banned by the US Govt, they are going to title the film “The Many Exploits of Cowboy Chop-Suey Through The Multiverse: There And Back Again 9 Times.” Bravo Troma App. Bravo

Anywho, here is the pitch I gave them:

Cowboy Chop-Suey, born to a Chinese American mother and a bowl of Pinto Beans, thus began life as she was destined to suffer it….going in no direction all at once. A mediocre neurosurgeon, this lawsuit waiting to happen, was tossed to the curb after less than stellar performance at her job.

On the streets, she loitered around China Town learning useful skills such as: finding food by digging through the garbage behind various eateries. Where she discovers a discarded notebook filled with Multiverse theories which she shows to a gathering group of curious raccoons, those disease-ridden back-alley mammals The China Town Trash Pandas.

And now, with her stolen rickshaw covered in bottle rockets lifted from a fireworks stand and ready for an escape to another reality, Cowboy Chop-Suey faces the greatest improbability of her downward spiraling life…

…while below the streets, in the sewer, a group of clowns, mounted on discarded pet alligators, peers from storm drains keeping a gleeful eye on Team Suey’s every move…

There…I made your movie worse. You are welcome!

INTRO

Oh hi,

Greetings organic forms of planet space farm. You may have noticed my space ship that now blocks your sun and is hovering over you as I speak.I am possession of a Stellar Converter..now I know most of you rubes have no idea what that is….let’s just say it turns your planet to fire…fire bad!

Band of merry mutants

Beebopping through the galaxy. Oh good you guys are all in the common area. Snipers

Now I hadn’t planned on stopping by your crappy little planet but it caught my eye as I was flying by. We scanned ya and we found you have nothing but Shelter, Food and Face Moles…and I was thinking to myself…I could use at least 2 of those 3 things. So here we are.

Now I don’t have time to kill you now…so lets say 7 risings and I’ll be back. So don’t go anywhere. I’ll be right back
