ATTACK OF THE KILLER TOMATOES & OTHER OLDIES BUT GOODIES



OK, so maybe "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes" isn't your idea of a good movie.  You have to admit the idea was original.  It was so ridiculous as to actually be funny.  A large percentage of today's films seem to be either complete remakes, or at least a second stab at someone else's idea.

Below is a list of movies that, in my opinion, were great!!  Some of them have been remade, but the originals were much better.  I'm running this on a Friday so you'll have the weekend to watch them.  Clicking on the links will bring you the full movie, so kick off your shoes, grab a cup of coffee or a bottle of wine, turn on the sound & enjoy:

Invasion of the Body Snatchers: click here.

IT'S POSSIBLE WE MAY HAVE OVER-AMERICANIZED SOME THINGS


BuzzFeed thinks so, anyway.   Here are some examples; the comments are theirs, for the most part:

Mobile phones:
I can’t see this going wrong at all. Nope. Not even one little bit.

Coffee:
For when your morning drink just isn’t shooty enough.

Cheese:
Science has a lot to answer for.

Bowel movements:
Five dollars for a single poop? 

Clothes:
Dressing in regular clothing is just SO un-American.

Alphabetical order:
“Screw the rest of the world, we’re the most important and we’re going first.” – America

Ice cream:
Made with real bald eagle!!

Christmas:
What’s Santa doing when he’s not delivering presents? Dressing up as G.I. Joe and shooting  ducks, apparently.

 Butter:
Why? No. No. Why?

Irony:
Too much.

Both doughnuts AND burgers:
They’re even GLAZED.

Diamonds:
This just doesn’t make any sense.

Soda:
“Gosh, I’m parched. I could really do with a lovely, refreshing glass of artificial bacon soda,” said literally no one ever.

Housing:
This person wasn’t allowed to fly the flag in their front garden, so they did…this.

Dates:
America, getting stuff wrong since 1776!

Health:
Each color counts as one of your five-a-day!!

 Car decals:

No.

Beer:
“How should we arrange all this beer, Dave?”
“Leave it to me, I’ve got an awesome plan…”

 Just EVERYTHING.
You guys gotta chill.
















If people from Poland are called Poles, why aren't people from Holland called Holes?----fishducky
