A happy 79th birthday to the legend Christopher Walken today! I have been having an unexpected Very Walken 2022 so far -- I re-watched Batman Returns a few weeks ago after The Batman left me cold and he is of course a total delight in that as the sinister Max Schreck, department store goon; he can currently be seen on the TV show Severance, which I'm only a couple of episodes into so don't spoil anything but I imagine he'll have more to do down the line; and third, I watched Communion last week for the first time, and... what it the holy fuck is this movie???
There's a brief Twitter thread there above if you click on that -- I live-tweeted the movie because I couldn't believe what I was watching. How did I never know what an insane pile of coked-up trash that movie is? That's another movie a la my recent experience with Boxing Helena that got lost for me due to timing -- I was just a smidge too young when those movies came out to really understand their deals or get the jokes, and then they became movies that were mostly forgot unto time so I never really thought about them again... until I did. Here on thirty years later. And...
... they were both worth it! Both of these movies should be Cult Classics. They should be happening at Midnight screenings all the time, and it's truly a shame that they're not. Get on it, programmers! If I have any programmers around listening these are the ones! Cult chaos, hilarity, the lot. Absolute gold.
