Love! Horror! What better combination? In honor of Valentine's Day, we look at some famous arcade couples. And in honor of anniversaries, we look at the 30th of Silence of the Lambs. Get ready to hold your sweetie!
What better motivation than love? As we celebrate Valentine’s Day, we honor some legendary arcade characters and the love of their life that they must save. And 30 years ago Hannibal Lecter gave us something to fear and menus to avoid in the award winning Silence of the Lambs.
Everyone seems very excited about the new Little Debbie’s Cosmic Brownie Cereal. Is it for you? Let us know what you think?
So many of our favorite, legendary arcade characters started their adventures by rescuing their true love. Mario and Peach, Link and Zelda, Dirk and Daphne, who did you relate to? And were the damsels in distress in as much distress as we thought? We look at the games we loved and the relationship tips we got from the arcade.
Let’s All Go to the Movies
Thirty years ago, Jonathan Demme brought us one of the scariest films of all time. Silence of the Lambs earned all of it’s accolades and awards as Jodie Foster portrayed a strong, intelligent woman against the insanity of Anthony Hopkins and his portrayal of Hannibal the Cannibal. The movie led us into an era where our culture was obsessed with crime drama, but none ever came close to scaring us like this. But Shua is pretty wimpy when it comes to scary movies, so he needs to silence his lambs by watching some horror comedies. Abbott and Costello, Monster Squad, Transylvania 6-5000; there were bunches of options for those that needed the kids table of scariness.
