It's been a long week - much has been accomplished (including a job interview!!) - but tonight I just want to kick back and have myself a lil' Halloween marathon. I still don't know what tomorrow night will bring - maybe Rocky Horror, maybe Paranormal Activity......we're just playing it by ear here at the Mother Firefly Ranch.
First - I started out with something fun, Monsters Vs. Aliens: Mutant Pumpkins From Outer Space. This was on NBC Wednesday night. I thought it was really fun (maybe even more fun than the actual movie?) and I loved the mutant pumpkins:
I decided that I'd end the month watching some old Halloween favorites that I haven't managed to get to yet. Since Mutant Pumpkins was so fun, I thought I'd go with this one:
I blogged about this one last year, so I won't say too much...except that this, Halloween III, and a couple of others are my on my MUST watch list for October.
I was a huge Rankin-Bass fan as a kid (as many of us were) and we always made sure we were home on the nights that Rudolph and their other Christmas specials aired.
MMP, however, was a little more elusive. I'm pretty sure I never saw it in prime time - I think it was probably on a Saturday afternoon or something. I don't even know how many times I saw it as a kid -it might have even been just 2 or 3 times - and then years went by before I was able to see it again. It wasn't available on VHS till I was MUCH older - by that time it might have been 10 years since I'd seen it - but I hadn't forgotten it. I bought it on DVD as soon as it came out a few years ago - and I watch it every Halloween. Nothing makes me feel as warm and fuzzy, or puts me in the Halloween mood more than MMP.
Tomorrow we'll see how many of my favorites I can get through before we go out for the evening......
