The Media Section: What to ingest
Just like many of my fellow Neonetizens, I have very poor taste. And now it's time to show what exactly is the best of the worst, when it comes to Movies, TV, Anime, Games, Books, and whatever else I feel like putting here. Continue at your own risk.
WarGames is proof that a kid that is good at Galaga can lose at tic-tac-toe and avoid the Cold War. It also features a defense computer named after a hamburger, a science teacher that doesn't get along with his wife, and a nice game of chess. The only winning move is to play this movie.
Wayne's World (1992)
The Film Wayne's World could be described as entertaining, whimsical yet relevant, with an underlying revisionist conceit that belied its emotional attachments to the subject matter...NOT! This movie is so dumb that I've rewatched my copy on VHS over a dozen times. The perfect move for those Fridays at 10 o'clock. Party on.
The Goonies (1985)
The Goonies is a good movie, not only because it had a great soundtrack, fantastic cast, and wonder special effects, but because of the plot: A group of neighborhood kids look for pirate treasure while Thanos and a crime family chase after them. Also, Sloth. This movie is perfect in my eyes. It is one of the few classic films that will "never say die".
Short Circuit (1986)
I'll give my honest input here - this movie isn't super emotional or profound. It really tries, but it ends up being too robotic to connect with me on a personal level. However, Johnny 5 is a very charming lead character, the special effects are very, very cool, and even El DeBarge himself sings the main song. Just go in remembering this:"It doesn't get sad, it doesn't get happy, It just runs programs!"
