Anyway, being me and always looking for an opportunity to get people together in the name of movies, I had a gathering last night to celebrate Spicywatch's first birthday. It really is amazing how movies can bring people together, whether you've seen ten movies or ten thousand, there are going to be films that just stick with you.
Last night one of the prerequisites of the evening was to share your favourite movie scene, thankfully no-one had any Pretty Woman or Titanic moments, but we did get everything from Pulp Fiction to Bad Grandpa in the mix. Everyone was clearly looking for a laugh so most clips were funny or musical in nature, perhaps the strangest of them all was Helen's call back to the 1980's BMX movie RAD, almost better than Bob Fossil and David Hasselhoff put together.
It was a very funny evening, I have a corking hangover to prove that and I have been so unproductive today that I actually feel a bit guilty, just a little bit.
It was all worth it in the name of Spicywatch!

Quentin Tarantino's first feature length movie and the beginning of his long relationship with gore based action movies. Reservoir Dogs first premiered at The Sundance Film Festival in 1992 and fastly became the festivals most talked about movie, it was subsequently picked up for distribution by Miramax Films. It has since gone on to be recognised as one of the most successful independent films of all time.
A group of thieves assemble to perform a well orchestrated diamond heist. However, things go sour during the heist when it becomes apparent that one of the group is an informant. The men rapidly begin to turn on each other in an attempt to weed out the informant.
A stellar all star cast and a kick arse soundtrack really add meat to the bones of this film, and although it is a violently unnerving movie that many people have walked out of due to its graphic content, it does exactly what Tarantino set out for it do, which is to have an affect on its audience.
FINAL SAY: For all I know, you're the rat!
