Oh dear.... [Sep. 18th, 2003|09:45 pm]

There is an incredibly low budget movie on Showtime Beyond and it is terrible! It's Vampirella, and it is starring Roger Daltrey of all people. They are all wearing what looks like cheesy Halloween costumes that were on clearance at Big Lots or something.... My gosh, this is terrible....

Sounds pretty bad! I'd love to see a good movie about Vampirella, though! ;)
What's up with Big Lots! I miss that it was called Pic n' Save! So many fond memories of going to Pic n' Save with my allowance! *lol* :D

Hehe - Big Lots back in KC used to be called "Odd Lots" - I'm not sure why. I think it sounded better then!

My sisters and I used to walk to Big Lots when we were younger =) It was kind of a dodgy place, but it was close, and cheap! I was happy to find one here in Florida - we hit it all the time.

It is definitely a kids heaven. But even as an adult I still found some pretty niffty things there! I think they're even selling frozen food now! :D
Yay Big Lots! (but I'll always know it as Pic n' Save)

Vampirella's outfit is the most cheesy outfit I ever seen in my entire life LOL ... like Kayti aleardy said before, it look like you can find her in a Cracker Jack chips bag lol ...
I had tons of commissions of vampirella request in the past lol and had to check on all those website including picture gallery of the movie ! LOLLL ....... oooooooooh well ...
In the other side, Vampirella is really on the top the most popular 'babe' in the comic book history lol ... o_O

LOL! She really does have the worst outfit! How on earth does she ever take it off? She'd have to cut it with scissors each time she had to go to the bathroom, lol.

The movie version of her outfit was even worse - it looked like it was made out of Saran Wrap!

Ahhh! That is a very painful film!

Roger Daltrey has been in some cataclysmic boo-boo's of movies. I've forgotten the name of that horrible leprechaun/fairy miniseries... and of course there was The Legacy... ow... and what was that one! the really scary looking one I never even saw! With Paul Nicholas! Lisztomania!!

Although there is a certain wonderful campy appeal to most of these... I wouldn't blame anyone who liked them...

"He choked. On a chicken bone."
"But... he was eating ham!"

LOL! I actually LOVE The Legacy, hehe. Matt and I were reminiscing about that the other day. Very, very campy, but I like it, hehe.

I feel vindicated for actually having a good portion of those mentioned on video tape. Those are the movies you watch in moderation cause ALL together they are farily hideous. You watch them a scene every couple of days till a month goes by and you have watched the whole movie and scene by scene it isn't that bad. Roger Daltrey is not one to pick grand movies to be in. And I was just reading that now he is taking a turn in the Micheal Palin direction and is gonna be hosting a archeology show on the History channel. Maybe it is safer that way but who knows. But we must not discount Mcvicar in anyway for that movie is the absolute tippy-top of horrendous Daltrey movies.
