Known to My Generation as "Evil Furbies"
I'm one of those unfortunate souls who missed out on some classic 80's films. Basically, I've only seen films that Chris Columbus has directed, never ones that he's written (the first time I saw "The Goonies" was when we made our pretty stellar drinking game). I've heard the quotes. I know you're not supposed to feed them after midnight. I was not prepared for how fun and dynamic this movie is. It's a perfect example of the best of 80's entertainment; ridiculous, at times raunchy, cheerfully offensive and carefully crafted.
In other words, perfect for Christmas. Come drink with us as you recover from your holiday, as we gaze upon a film about fighting monsters, the dangers of over-reliance on technology, and the constant fear of a Red Invasion.
Yeah, you heard me.
