HOWEVER. With Batman & Robin now behind us, we can now look to the future... and to what film we'll show for the next Mercury Hecklevision! Our past films have been Commando, Red Dawn, and Point Break, and ones I've got on a list for consideration for future installments include, but are not limited to....
• The Lost Boys
• Road House
• Trapped in the Closet
• Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves
• Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Waterworld: The Double Feature
• Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves and Waterworld: Both Films, Playing on the Same Screen, at the Same Time, Both at Maximum Volume
• Kindergarten Cop
• Purple Rain
• an episode or two of Grimm
• an episode or two of Portlandia
• Over the Top
• Maximum Overdrive
• The Happening
Those, however, are just the tip of the iceberg (which reminds me that I'd love to do Titanic, except it's 43 hours long), and I'm guessing you guys have some suggestions, too. Hit me with 'em in the comments, or throw in a vote for any of the ones I listed above. I will either carefully consider your comments or totally ignore them and show whatever I want.
Thanks again to everybody for coming out! See you next time.
*Clearly, I have infinite patience for shitty movies—but I have next to zero patience for shitty comments that are neither funny nor smart. I've never had to ban anyone at any of the previous Hecklevisions, but during Batman & Robin, I got immense satisfaction from blocking a few dicks who were steadfastly, obnoxiously intent on being dicks. Protip for future Hecklevisions: Don't be a dick.
