(I consider myself a pretty serious movie fan. But the simple fact of the matter is that I miss stuff. Famous and interesting stuff. But not for long! Welcome to the column where I continue my film education before your very eyes. I will seek out and watch all of the movies I know I should have seen by now. I will first "review" the movie before I've watched it, based entirely on its reputation. Then I will give the movie a fair chance and actually watch it. You will laugh at me, you may condemn me, but you will never say I didn't try!)

The Film:

Cocoon (1985), Dir. Ron Howard

Starring:

Don "Talking Dog" Ameche, Wilford "Has the Diabetes" Brimley, Jessica "Driven By Morgan Freeman" Tandy and every other actor who'd get the senior discount at Denny's.

Why I Haven't Seen It Until Now:

E.T.
with old people? Directed by Opie? No thank you.
