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.

The Incredible Shrinking Man: click here.

Airplane!: click here.

The Day the Earth Stood Still: click here.

The Rocky Horror Picture Show: click here.

Blazing Saddles: click here.

A Fish Called Wanda: click here: 

Trading Places: click here. 















98% of the time I am right.  Why worry about the other 3%?----fishducky

  1. I saw "Attack of The Killer Tomatoes" --a reference to Sacramento's two most remarkable products, tomatoes and Bob Wilkins-- on KCRA's "Creature Features" many years ago and still chuckle over it. Thanks for the memory!

  2. I rarely see movies. However, I have seen not one but three of the movies you listed, and loved them. I would add Monty Python movies to the mix too.

  3. I've seen 4 of these. A recent movie I saw that I love is The Intern with Robert Dinero (?) and Ann Hathaway.

    1. Good movie. Has Dinero ever been in a bad movie?

  4. All those old 50's flicks were the awful effects of the atomic bomb. They always ended with creepy music and a sense that some other evil was brewing.

    I ate them up.

    Fish Called Wanda and Trading Places were remade? Why on Gods great green Earth? Why? They were and remain great!

  5. Our family loved "Blazing Saddles," and just about every other Mel Brooks flick that came around. Did you see "History of the World, Part One"? If not, you should. Hilarious!!!

  7. We don't see as many movies as we used to, just the big action movies that look best on a big screen. Others we catch on Netflix or On Demand.

    1. I used to go weekly with a bunch of my friends. It's too difficult for me now, but HOW I miss going!!

  8. A Fish Called Wanda is hilarious. In my house I'm experiencing The Attack Of The Killer Dog Gas. Breathe through your mouth.

    Love,

    2. I doubt if it would help, but I'd like to add, Touch-a-touch-a-touch me, I wanna be dirty. Touch-a-touch-a-touch me, creature of the night.

  10. Only saw three of them but I really miss seeing a movie in an actual theater. It is a 3 hour drive to see one where I live and the small screen just isn't the same.
    Loved the popcorn eating ring tone.

    1. The big screen IS better, but the small screen is better that nothing!!

  12. I'm a bit worried about your final sentence (*~*)
    We love Blazing Saddles, we used to own it on VHS and my youngest watched it so often the tape broke and he was supremely happy when I bought him a new on on DVD.Rocky Horror Picture show was a favourite for a while, but we're over it now.
