Class of 1999, now that's a fun movie. I mean, come on, how often do you see a high schooler (even though he looks older) get spanked several times in front of a classroom? Not to mention all the other crazy awesome shit.

It's Class of 1984, which is nothing like this movie for the record.

Forest makes a good point about a possible direction for season 2 of Stranger Things.

Have you guys checked your email lately?

Great, unexpected choices for films, guys! I love it!

When I was in the 7th grade, I read a book called “The Wave,” which was adapted from a 1981 TV movie, which itself was based on a social experiment by Ron Jones. It was remade by German filmmakers in 2008, to apparently good effect. The story in some ways could serve as a prequel of sorts to MASSACRE AT CENTRAL HIGH, as to how a school could enter into a Fascist regime.

It was mentioned that the Republicans take advantage of whatever celebrity they can get their hands on. Humorist Dave Barry joked about that in the late 80s, when he expressed how much he felt sorry for Bo Derek, who was run ragged from being trotted out at every Republican gathering imaginable, since she was the best celebrity they had at the time. I think Tom Selleck is an NRA-supporting Republican, which ended up costing Rosie O’Donnell some of her conservatives viewers when she had him as a guest on her talk show only to keep lambasting him for his politics.

I liked listening to Joe Bob Briggs talk about CLASS OF 1999. When he described a scenario in which gangs had taken over entire communities that even the police had refused to enter, all I could think was: In Rio de Janeiro, people call that “Tuesday.”
