A classic, never gets old.
Still dealing with the fact my closest friend is sleeping with my asshole roomate. I've rarely been so confused.

Today, after 8 hours at work, a scalding popcorn kernel jumped at my throat. Damn, those things are viscious. Got a burn where it first hit, and a crater where it landed. It looks like I got bit by a vampire.

Watched Starman to forget my worries. So beautiful. I almost cried.
Comments pending.

An extremely cheesy 80's sci-fi movie that runs along the same lines as ET, or, strangely enough, Short Circuit. An alien comes to Earth, is shown around by the girl, gets chased by the government who view him as a threat, and tries to make it to some place in Arizona where he is supposed to be picked up. The thing I ask, is why did he come to Earth in the first place, if right after he landed he is immediately attempting to get back to his home planet. It's got bad video and sound effects, cheesy dialogue and acting, at yet it still manages to be mostly interesting and fun. A decent movie for sci-fi fans.

Comment on this film, and my rating.
A lot of things make this movie work - the wonderfully well developed characters, the humorous touches throughout, John Carpenter's excellent direction, a good score, outstanding pacing, a great screenplay and a superb cast. Jeff Bridges is amazing, Charles Martin Smith gives excellent support and Karen Allen is perfectly cast.

Starman (1984)

I can honestly say until I got this DVD as a gift I had never really heard of it. I just got finished watching it and I really liked it. It's kind of a slow sci-fi movie but it was really good. From the start you really sympathize with Karen Allen's character and that made movie so much better. Without adding spoilers or anything, it's great to see the relationship between the two evolve throughout the movie.
Starman (1984): 6/10
