#blobtweet 00:30 – A Tri-Star movie. Remember that production company, kids?
#blobtweet 1:50 – It’s not snowing in the ski town. Remember that, kiddos.
#blobtweet 02;20 – That was a black cat that just crossed the town’s path. Oooooooh!
#blobtweet 03:20 – Frank Darabont, director of THE MIST AND SHAWSHANK, helped write the screenplay. (Hey, I was in SHAWSHANK.)
#blobtweet 05:00 – A young, hot Shawnee Smith as a cheerleader, no less. I love this movie already.
#blobtweet 06:00 – And here’s Kevin Dillon, whose career went nowhere until it was revitalized with POSEIDON. Aka, his career is nowhere.
#blobtweet 07:25 – A hobo pours out beer then takes the can??? That’s the most unrealistic part of this movie.
#blobtweet 08:15 – For those keeping score, this sheriff is the prosecutor who convicted Tim Robbins in SHAWSHANK.
#blobtweet 09:15 – The Blob causes more problems… it also screws with sheriffs trying to get laid.
#blobtweet 10:45 – What 80s horror flick would be complete without a small-town sheriff and a thug working at a chop shop?
#blobtweet 12:45 – I’m having flashbacks to THE LONESOME DEATH OF JORDY VERILL.
#blobtweet 14:00 – How small is this town when the pharmacist has to get the condoms for you?
#blobtweet 15:50 – Aw, that meteor’s broken. He’s not going to get his full $200 for it at the college.
#blobtweet 16:40 – I would totally see GARDEN TOOL MASSACRE.
#blobtweet 18:50 – And Meg’s father is… The pharmacist! Wah-wah-wah-waaaaaaaaaah!
#blobtweet 20:00 – That axe shot… Awesome!
#blobtweet 20:45 – “Scott Jesky’s gonna die.” Yet another piece of foreshadowing.
#blobtweet 22:50 – “The doctor’s with another patient right now.” Just one doctor for an emergency room? This is a small town.
#blobtweet 25:00 – That old homeless dude looks like Amy Winehouse after a rough weekend.
#blobtweet 25:40 – I think he might be dead… oh wait.. look behind the door!
#blobtweet 26:45 – This would be an icky way to go.
#blobtweet 27:00 – Lend you a hand?
#blobtweet 28:50 – And here’s Erika Elaniak! Pre or post-Playboy? I really don’t care. She’s hot. (And another ET ref, @FyodorFish)
#blobtweet 29:50 – That’s either the Blob approaching or some very tiny velociraptors.
#blobtweet 31:20 – It’s nice that the Blob is taking its time so we can get a little date rape action going on.
#blobtweet 32:00 – Funny. Erik Elaniak’s boobs didn’t do *that* in Playboy.
#blobtweet 33:00 – Ah, the out-of-tune piano. A staple in 80s horror movie soundtracks.
#blobtweet 35:45 – That deputy must taste delicious!
#blobtweet 37:00 – Man! Kevin Dillon could write a book on badassery.
#blobtweet 38:55 – “All I saw was an old man with a funky hand.” Sounds like the beginning of a country-western song.
#blobtweet 41:25 – A busy night with a dead football player. Guess I’ll check out the waitress and get laid at the local diner.
#blobtweet 43:20 – Awesome! Down the drain! Like moldy fish.
#blobtweet 44:20 – My son Liam: “Too cool for you? Wuss!”
#blobtweet 46:25 – Crushed that phone book like a grape. Two for one!
#blobtweet 48:40 – Those horseshoes on the doors of the diner ain’t doing the diner much good.
#blobtweet 50:15 – Wait… didn’t the receptionist just tell the waitress that the sheriff was on his way to the diner?
#blobtweet 52:25 – Like Meg’s going to admit that she has diarrhea?
#blobtweet 53:20 – This guy’s telling a story that starts, “The dinosaurs ruled the earth…” Who the hell is he?
#blobtweet 54:15 – And another Playboy model… Kirk Cameron’s wife from GROWING PAINS.
#blobtweet 55:45 – I have been in many places with many forms of air conditioning. And I don’t know anyone who has cloth tied to the grates.
#blobtweet 56:50 – No that’s an awesome gory death from Hobbs.
#blobtweet 59:35 – Wow. Kevin Dillon definitely has the party in the back thing going for the mullet.
#blobtweet 1:00:00 – “There is no cause for alarm. This is a precautionary quarantine.” Do the math, sisiter.
#blobtweet 1:01:15 – One of the great remake homages ever committed to film in the horror genre.
#blobtweet 1:02:00 – If this is such a small town, why are so many people at the movies and not in the bars?
#blobtweet 1:03:30 – Did you see that upper body strength on Meg? Pulling the manhole cover with one hand. Or she’s on smack, like in SAW.
#blobtweet 1:05:55 – I think these are all the same scientsts from ET. (You hear that, @FyodorFish?)
#blobtweet 1:07:00 – And the hot socket wrench set saves the day!
#blobtweet 1:07:55 – Will badass, mulleted Kevin Dillon make it over the bridge?????
#blobtweet 1:08:30 – I’m kinda lost at how that busted up bridge managed to stop the helicopter as well as the pick-up truck.
#blobtweet 1:11:00 – What rat? The only time you’re bothered by no rats in the sewer.
#blobtweet 1:11:45 – This movie has some stones… killing the kid and all. Just like SILVER BULLET.
#blobtweet 1:12:35 – “We have orders not to shoot.”
#blobtweet 1:14:10 – Here’s a drinking game rule for this movie. Take a drink anytime Kevin “Badass” Dillon crashes his bike. You’d be dead
#blobtweet 1:17;15 – Liam just said, “Boo-yah! Finally an explosion.” The kid has high standards.
#blobtweet 1:18:10 – The deputy just said, “I’ll blow you out of your shoes, boy!” to Kevin Badass Dillon. Is he talking about guns?
#blobtweet 1:19:15 – In the face! Blob in the face!
#blobtweet 1:20:40 – That explosion didn’t kill the Blob. It just gave it heartburn.
#blobtweet 1:23:00 – All this high tech gear, and a cheerleader is saving everyone with a frakking fire extinquisher. Nice.
#blobtweet 1:25:20 – Deputy Sexual Frustration just got killed. Poor Kevin Dillon has no one to lick now.
#blobtweet 1:26:15 – Meg is turning into Ellen Ripley. And before this film, she hadn’t said “shit” before. Believe it or not.
#blobtweet 1:27:25 – All that freon in the atmosphere can’t be good for the environment… or the Blob.
#blobtweet 1:28:15 – Wow… the kid’s friend is horrible killed by the Blob, and he’s just into going out to play in the snow.
#blobtweet 1:29:45 – I knew this preacher was trouble from the beginning. ‘Course, I’ve seen this before.
#blobtweet 1:30:30 – Blob in a jar, awaiting judgement day. And ROLL CREDITS!
@Fozziebare Tell me about it. We so need SON OF THE BLOB. Or at least THE BLOB MEETS GARDEN TOOL MASSACRE. #blobtweet
