Meathead March – Stand By Me (1986) – Silver Screen Serenade


It’s reblog time! MovieRob is running a blogathon dedicated to the films of Mr. Rob Reiner and I couldn’t resist partaking! In order to please a certain someone (I’m lookin’ at you, Mutant!), I decided to watch and review Stand by Me. Go and have a read!

“I never had any friends later on like the ones I had when I was twelve. Jesus, does anyone?” – The Writer


Number of Times Seen – 1 (21 Feb 2015)

Brief Synopsis – “After the death of a friend, a writer recounts a boyhood journey to find the body of a missing boy.” (from IMDb)

My Take On It – Per usual, I’d just like to take a minute to thank Rob for another great idea here. I hadn’t realized Rob Reiner had so many awesome films in his wheelhouse! I’m really looking forward to all these reviews! But I knew right away what I was going to tackle—mostly because Table 9 Mutant was never going to leave me alone…

A Tribute to Leonard Nimoy

leonard nimoy

Hey, guys. I realize this is a super delayed reaction since he passed away on Friday, but I thought it only seemed right to do something on here in honor of the incomparable Mr. Leonard Nimoy. I’m ashamed to admit that I really haven’t seen him in much, but what I knew of him, I loved, and the world just doesn’t seem right without the original Mr. Spock. Continue reading

Sh*t’s going down at The IPC!!! Go check out my entry for Eric Isaacs’ gloriously painful competition!!! WARNING: Contains lots and lots of bad language. Readers beware…

God, it feels good to throw Eric Isaacs back into his basement prison be welcomed back to The IPC with open arms to vent about another rancid film! For those of you who don’t know me, hello! My name is Cara, and I’d like to be your friend. Or, at the very least, I’d like you to listen to me rant. If you happen to enjoy my ranting and would like to read it on a regular basis, I run a little place known as Silver Screen Serenade, and you are welcome any ol’ time.

As always, I’d like to take a moment to provide a little prelude/warning for my regular followers: Cara rules over SSS, but during Shitfest, the villainous, rage-filled, foul-mouthed Dark Cara takes over, and it ain’t pretty. If you’re easily offended by strong language, turn back now, oh sweet and good readers!
