-- Crow T. RobotTomorrow's the day folks. Since I helped out with your food preparation needs yesterday, I thought I'd suggest some post-dinner activities. I don't tend to watch sports on TV, especially not NFL football's four-hour commercial blocks punctuated by occasional game play. Instead, I like to turn to the shiny little platters of goodness whose siren songs convince me to spend more and money on them: DVDs. And what better sequel to a meal of turkey is there than watching "turkeys"?
Here are a few gems (a term I use very lightly) you might enjoy falling asleep to when that good ol' turkey magic kicks into high gear:
- Tim Burton's adaptation of Planet of the Apes—Not a totally awful movie, but not very good either. Plenty of idiocy to laugh at and hopefully you'll fall asleep before the "WTF" ending.
- Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace—Sorry my fellow fans, this film pretty much blows goats. Aside from a few cool scenes, this serves as the perfect time waster. You won't miss a thing in your turkey-induced stupor.
- Dungeons & Dragons—Imagine the worst RPG group you ever played with and then imagine them making a movie. Not even seeing Zoe McLellan trussed up in Ren Faire garb could keep me awake through this film and that's without the benefit of a turkey dinner.
