Just Watching TV

Filed under: Movies — Tom @ 4:58 pm

Free Enterprise is on cable right now. I love this movie. I own it on DVD, but can’t help watch it whenever I come across it like this. Not everyone gets it — you really need to be a huge nerd. The main characters Mark (played by Eric McCormack of Will & Grace fame) and Robert (Rafer Weigel) spend a lot of time talking about comic books and science fiction movies.

And you can’t be a fan of just the new stuff, as made clear when Robert finds himself arguing about movies with a little kid at Toys R Us:

You know what the problem is with you kids today? You guys think that all science fiction started in 1977 with Star Wars. Man, what about movies like Forbidden Planet? The Day the Earth Stood Still? Solaris? What about Logan’s Run?

This movie is pure nerd genius. I just thought everyone should know.
