Beyond the Valley of the Dolls

I have always wanted to watch this movie. I knew that Roger Ebert wrote the screenplay way back in 1970 and that it was directed by Russ Meyer so I knew it had to be good. Well, it was so bad it was good. It is definitely a cult classic from the get go. Groovy music, characters and some weird plot makes this a must see (well at least once). It wasn’t my intention to watch it, but Daniel and I were up late on Saturday night hanging out and we were channel surfing and some how we ended up on it.

Another movie we had caught a bit of was Amityville Horror 2: The Possession. We made it about 45 minutes into it before Daniel declared it was stupid. I don’t know if I agree, I spent several lengthy minutes watching the movie in Josh-vision (hands over eyes, peering through the fingers ever now and then, and sometimes pretending to watch the movie, but really reading the titles on the videos above the TV), but it was pretty bad.

Also on the agenda for the weekend was another viewing of Ringu. Once again it creeped the booboojeebies out of me, but it was neat seeing places that I might visit in a week! I was writing down some of the sights in the movie and seeing how far they were.

I am so excited about the trip. Only one more work day (tomorrow) and then Wednesday I’ll be packing and planning. Then its off on Thursday! I’ll post details about the trip on Wednesday and hopefully I’ll be able to post some updates to the site while I am gone.
