(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


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:

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