In honor of the upcoming DREAMSCAPE live-tweet at 11:30pmET/8:30pmPT, I have changed my avatar to a snake man!
Before we start DREAMSCAPE, here’s some odd DREAMSCAPE trivia for you: It’s the 2nd movie to receive a PG-13 rating. (The 1st was RED DAWN.)
Also, I purchased a copy of DREAMSCAPE on VHS at the RST Video Store in Leonardo, NJ, made famous by @ThatKevinSmith.
While at RST Video, I was waited on by the guy who seriously could have been the inspiration for Randall.
#dreamscapetweet 00:20 – Nothing says 80s like a synth soundtrack.
#dreamscapetweet 01:00 – From this point forth, I demand to be called Kevin “Bumper” Carr.
#dreamscapetweet 02:40 – Whoa! A white president? That’s crazy talk!
#dreamscapetweet 03:15 – Wow. Kate Capshaw was pretty cute back then. No wonder Spielberg jumped her bones.
#dreamscapetweet 06:00 – Cue awesome 80s synth chase scene score.
#dreamscapetweet 06:30 – The soundtrack sounds like the background music for The Wizard of Wor.
#dreamscapetweet 09:00 – Oh crap! Automatic locks! Foiled again!
#dreamscapetweet 12:10 – Why is Kate Capshaw wearing nurse’s stockings? Is she just trying to turn me on?
#dreamscapetweet 13:20 – So 3 or 4 erections a night is normal? What if you have just one loooooooong all-night erection?
#dreamscapetweet 14:00 – My son Liam just said Quaid was like a little kid running around, being too curious.
#dreamscapetweet 15:40 – Totally waiting for Dennis Quaid and Max Von Sydow to start making out.
#dreamscapetweet 18:15 – Norm!
#dreamscapetweet 19:20 – For those who don’t know this… Cory “Bumper” Yothers is the brother of Tina “Non-Bumper” Yothers from FAMILY TIES
#dreamscapetweet 20:25 – I think that other psychic just crapped himself.
#dreamscapetweet 21:25 – Must be cold in that room. Quaid could cut glass with those nipples.
#dreamscapetweet 24:20 – You’d be hauled away too if you spent time in the mind of Cory “Bumper” Yothers.
#dreamscapetweet 27:05 – That is one high-tech brain scan. Damn!
#dreamscapetweet 29:30 – I’d scream like that too if I were caught in a bad blue-screen like he was.
#dreamscapetweet 30:00 – David Patrick Kelly is pretty badass, but he loses street cred in that periwinkle paisley shirt.
#dreamscapetweet 32:15 – Wow. Short shorts and bright red running shoes. He could be on @PeopleofWalmart
#dreamscapetweet 35:00 – That’s right… fear of nuclear war and worries about the children. We’re in the 80s fer shure.
#dreamscapetweet 38:20 – This nerdy guy’s wife is quite a hottie. Heh heh…. just you wait.
#dreamscapetweet 41:45 – At least the kids got a front-row seat.
#dreamscapetweet 43:20 – Alex trying to “go in” Buddy reminds me of IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY’s “The Nightman Cometh” musical.
#dreamscapetweet 46:00 – Isn’t that Morpheus’s chair from THE MATRIX?
#dreamscapetweet 48:00 – I just wet myself.
#dreamscapetweet 48:55 – Nothing to lose your head over.
#dreamscapetweet 51:55 – I think George Wendt was contractually obligated to only appear in bars on film in the 1980s.
#dreamscapetweet 52:45 – The kids are currently drawing pictures of the Snake Man. Awesome.
#dreamscapetweet 54:10 – Man, Kate Capshaw’s still wearing those nurse’s stockings. Yikes!
@StellarReviews How ’bout them Capshaw-boobs now? #dreamscapetweet
#dreamscapetweet 56:30 – We lost @carcarr819. She’s going to bed. Hope she doesn’t dream of the Snake Man!
#dreamscapetweet 1:01:25 – Novotny must be kicking himself for hiring David Patrick Kelly. Didn’t he see the guy’s other films?
#dreamscapetweet 1:02:30 – Every time I see this scene, I crave a deli sandwich and a Coke.
#dreamscapetweet 1:07:30 – Pep rallies save the day again.
#dreamscapetweet 1:08:00 – He must have shot the pen in Norm’s pocket. That’s why black ink exploded everywhere.
#dreamscapetweet 1:10:00 – Early in PG-13’s history, you could drop 2 or 3 F-bombs before getting an R-rating apparently.
#dreamscapetweet My son Ben’s picture of the Snake Man he just drew… quite awesome… http://twitpic.com/ygf3v
#dreamscapetweet 1:14:45 – Splat. Right in a pile of horse manure.
#dreamscapetweet Ben’s Snake Man, in living color!… http://twitpic.com/yggbf
#dreamscapetweet And my other son Liam’s Snake Man pictures… http://twitpic.com/yggex http://twitpic.com/yggez http://twitpic.com/yggf5
#dreamscapetweet 1:20:20 – This university has a lot of frickin’ guns.
@ThatStevenC I swear to god there were boobs in the sex dream when I saw it in theaters.
#dreamscapetweet 1:21:45 – That computer in the background looks like Edgar from ELECTRIC DREAMS.
#dreamscapetweet 1:23:00 – Sedative? Give him a sed-a-give!
#dreamscapetweet 1:27:15 – Hey, is that Denzel Washington in the background, carryinga book?
#dreamscapetweet 1:30:15 – Whoa! Eddie Albert is sporting Robert Pattinson hair.
#dreamscapetweet 1:32:50 – Ahhhh… A dead giveaway for a dream… the wide-angle lens.
#dreamscapetweet 1:34:45 – A sure sign any 80s movie is over… the saxaphone love theme.
#dreamscapetweet 1:35:00 – And ROLL CREDITS!
Final thoughts on DREAMSCAPE… one of my fav movies as a kid. Still love it, and love the 80s cheese w/ stop-motion & blue-screen.
@FyodorFish @StellarReviews @ThatStevenC Actually, DREAMSCAPE (Aug. 1984) came out 3 months before NOES (Nov. 1984)
Thanks to @StellarReviews @FyodorFish @DrewBloodNYC @AaronDej @Fozziebare @ThatStevenC for the DREAMSCAPE live-tweet! #dreamscapetweet
