Hello, my name is Emily and I like campy movies.
More specifically, silly sci-fi and horror movies, although sometimes other genres sneak past as well. There's Bride of Frankenstein
and there's Young Frankenstein
(although, to be fair, that one's supposed
to be silly), and then Batman: The Movie
(featuring Adam West in a world where everything is labeled, including shark repellent, chyeah!), countless episodes of Mystery Science Theater 3000
on television, which I've only seen a few of, to be honest - they always make me snorfle, though! There's Jeepers Creepers
and then there's Reptilian
(which is probably a whole class of its own, since it has dinosaurs, aliens, horrifically bad writing and acting, and a completely random plot), there's Van Helsing
with Fauxmanian Anna Valerius dying a horrid death from smush
(can you tell that I've been reading too much cleolinda
recently?), your Twilight Zone
episodes, and then...Jesus Christ Vampire Hunter
The reason that this all became recently relevant has to do with the fact that my mom signed up for a free Netflix trial. And she gave me access to the queue. Bad idea. Among the first movies I added? Batman: The Movie
(with David Bowie!), Galaxy Quest
, and Mystery Science Theater 3000: The Movie
. Also, Jhoom Barabar Jhoom
, which is apparently awful in the plot department but which I want to see anyway because the title song is really catchy.
I...I don't know whether I should be embarrassed at this point, or just embrace the silliness.
(Also, just as a side note, it should be clear that I like good, non-silly movies too. Really. I promise that I'm not a complete
(Also also, I just changed my layout because I was feeling really dark and gloomy this afternoon. No telling yet how long it'll stay - it may get changed tomorrow or it may last for a few years.)
(Also also also, I was watching a movie with my family tonight - a normal
movie - and started wondering if I actually have some mild form of social anxiety or something. Weird. I mean, I know that I have some insecurities and other things, but have no way of knowing if they're the kind that are pretty typical of everyone or if they're on a larger scale than most people's.)
