MIXED MOVIE QUOTES: RUNTS PRETENDING TO BE SUPERHEROES EDITION

It’s the last week of a long semester. I’m running on fumes, my students are running on fumes, the whole world seems like it’s running on fumes. So you know what? Screw it. Let’s power down, put a couple of movies on, and recharge our batteries. Ain’t nothing we can do in this week we can’t do in the first week of term three.

One of my Year Ten classes is watching Red, but I’ve done that one. The other is watching Mission Impossible: Holy Shit, I Can’t Believe This Pile of Crap Is Supposed To Be The Good One. And my Year Nines are watching Shazam.

So, as per my usual rules, here we are: A Mixed Movie Quote Cage Match. Shazam v Fallout.

I’ll be grown-up later.

MIXED MOVIE QUOTE: THE EMPEROR’S NEW GROOVE

It’s been a long time since I’ve managed to sit in front of the blog. Hopefully that will change in coming days, when we’re facing a teaching semester without COVID, cyclones, and all the other things that have turned the first half of this year into a rolling ball of liquid shite.

In the meantime, I was overcome by the medical necessity to see The Emperor’s New Groove again tonight. By the Gods, it’s still an absolutely wonderful, brilliant movie — I’d argue with anyone that it rivals Aladdin as the best thing Disney has ever done. And the Mixed Movie Quote proved so very easy…

MIXED MOVIE QUOTES: THE FLY

If there’s one thing Covid-19 is good for, it’s good for us no longer quite giving the shit we used to give about Lord 15 and movie ratings. So last night was The Fly, the 1986 R-rated remake version. Even after almost 35 years, Jeff Goldblum is amazing and Geena Davis…. has…… legs…… anyway: The Fly, mixed movie quote style.

MIXED MOVIE QUOTES: AMERICAN PSYCHO

Last night I introduced Luscious to one of my favourite black comedies, and all-round criminally underrated movie, American Psycho.

As per the rules, whereso it is watched, thereso must a quote be mixed.

It’s a challenge to find an innocent quote in a movie like America Psycho, let alone find one and turn it into something smutty and unbecoming.

I am that man.

MIXED MOVIE QUOTE: GOTHAM BY GASLIGHT

Luscious is out having dinner with friends tonight, so Lord 15 and I settled in for bad pizza and a DVD. Gotham by Gaslight is an alternative universe Batman story set in the 19th Century, pitting the Caped Crusader against — maybe — Jack the Ripper. It’s a little contrived, but has some surprisingly good moments, and casting Selina Kyle as a Suffragette is all the good things.

As always, a movie watched is a Mixed Movie Quote posted……

MIXED MOVIE QUOTE DOUBLE FEATURE: WAR GAMES and GREMLINS

The nostalgia was thick in the air at the Batthaim last night, as we settled in to expose Lord 15 to a simpler time, when computers had black screens and green writing, and Baby Yoda had three movements and hair.

War Games, surprisingly, holds up extraordinarily well. It’s still tight, tense, and superbly timed. Thank God we watched it first, because Gremlins has aged about as well as Keith Richards’ ballsac. Nevertheless, the law is the law: here they both are, Mixed Movie Quote style.

MIXED MOVIE QUOTE: THE RUNNING MAN

How did we end up watching this sadly dated Arnold Schwarzenegger so-close-it-just-makes-it-seem-worse entry from the ‘not quite Predator’ days? Suffice to say, there was an emergency flight to Perth (more on that tomorrow, possibly), a trip to the DVD store, discovering that the Blu-Ray of Highlander that was purchased on said trip refuses to play in the Blu-Ray player bought in the same country as the Blu-Ray, and this was the first case I saw on the Family-Hasn’t-Seen-It-Yet pile.

Still, as the rule states, where there is movie watchage, so shall there be movie quote mixage. So here we are, your The Running Man Mixed Movie Quote:

MIXED MOVIE QUOTE: THE TERMINATOR

It’s been a while since I’ve thrown one of these up, but then, it’s been a while since I’ve watched a movie.

Saturday night, Luscious, Lord 15, and I had tickets to see the new Terminator dumpster fire, but illness and mentals meant we stayed at home and consoled ourselves with lollies and watching the original (ie: The Good One) on Blu-ray instead. 35 years later, it’s still unbelievably good. And so you get this:
