If you're unable to tune in live tonight from 7-10pm - I will be posting the announcement
in next week's Trash-Tastic Thursday post so you loyal invaders won't miss a thing!
This week I've been expending a little bit of my income and buying movies like crazy at Target - there
s just too much good stuff out there! Yesterday I got off work early and was snooping around when I found a 32 pack of Drive-In cult classics.....FOR $10!!! This is like my dream come true! Trashy movies for cheap. Granted, deciding which movie to watch first was tough but now that I've broken this 32-pack's hymen I'm going to be abusing this thing like CRAZY!!
This pack is actually a lie - there are only 31 movies! The same movie was released in this
pack twice - anyone who owns this, do you know which one it is?
During the roaring 70s, the day and age of biker gangs we meet a particular gang of rough and tumble bikers like any other gang. Clad in jean jackets, iron helmets, and spiked belts adorned with swastikas and confederate flags - these men are big and intimidating. But that's only their outward appearance.
These six gentlemen in their WWII-era motorcycles are travelling down the Western coast to Los Angeles to a ball. Not brawl - BALL. More specifically the Drag Queen Cotillion Ball. Yep, these gentlemen are homosexuals, their partners riding in the sidecars of their motorcycles. Their luggage consists of fine dining china, and the attire they plan on wearing to the upcoming gala. But being gay bikers means they have to keep up appearances so no one gives them any trouble.
Throughout the entirety of the movie we are treated to the outrageous hi jinks of these men and how they survive in the big mean world of homophobes. And throughout their travels the movie randomly jumps to scenes of some random General sitting in his office listening to uplifting military speeches and reassembling his pistol while blindfolded. He didn't play any major part in this movie really, he answered a phone and talked to a senator about catching a "long-haired bastard" and kind of springs into action at the end of the movie, but that's all. Oh, and after playing an innocent prank on a group of bikers, this "group of cupcakes" becomes a hot target for a butt kicking.
So many awkward situations...
Starring John Alderman and Dan Haggerty, this movie is awkwardly hilarious and totally strange. Who just wears a garter around their jacket sleeve like an arm band?? I highly recommend this for trashy film fans who love something awkward and weird including fake beards and accents, happy-go-lucky ballads about America, naked waitresses, and bikers with a delicate edge. Prepare for a comedy unlike any other!
